New Breyer Web Exclusive Coeur de Lion!
|October 27, 2016||Posted by aidanstoytrove under Model Horse|
Breyer released a brand new Web Special exclusive. His name is Coeur de Lion and he is the Classics Terrang mold which was sculpted by Maureen Love. His color was inspired by the Lionheart and he is a beautiful glossy dunalino color. I think he is quite dashing. Breyer is offering Coeur de Lion to Collector’s Club members first. Leftovers will be offered to the general public on November 16th, 2016. I personally don’t see him selling out early but you never know!
Here is what Breyer has to say about Coeur de Lion:
2016 Web Exclusive
Inspired by the popular limited edition Lionheart model, Coeur de Lion is ready to find a place of honor in your collection! We’ve painted up a favorite Classics sculpt in a rich dunalino with metallic accents. He also has primitive leg barring and a dorsal stripe all topped off with a spotted blanket and heavy gloss. Coeur de Lion is exclusively offered to Breyer Collectors Club members first!* 1/12 scale and comes in a mail order box.
*Early access to 712205 Coeur de Lion for current, valid Collector Club members in good standing until 11:59pm EST, 11/15/16, while supplies last. Any remaining models not sold after the early access period has ended will be offered for sale to the general public
Coeur de Lion seems to be in the same series as Cosette and Julien and Sophia. I have both of these horses available in my eBay Store. Cosette and Julien and Sophia are Classics Scale sculpts by Maureen Love. Their finishwork was designed by Thomas Bainbridge. As far as I know, Lionheart nor Coeur de Lion had their finish work designed by Tom. Please correct me if I am wrong!
I’m very pleased that Breyer is bringing back these beloved old Maureen Love molds!
Speaking of Maureen Love molds. We recently made a video highlighting the difference between the Old Mold and the New Mold Proud Arabian Mare. You can see it on our YouTube Channel Aidan’s Toy Trove. We would love to hear from you if you have ideas for future videos!
