Breyer 2018 Mid Year Releases
Here are the Breyer 2018 Mid Year Releases. I will try to write a separate blog post about each but these pictures should be enough to wet any Breyer collector’s appetite! The mini Alborozo has caused quite a stir and I’m wondering if I shouldn’t up our order so that I can have a chance at him too. We will not have Prism or Nevermore, sorry! The others will be available for preorder shortly including the Stablemate Mystery Surprise Unicorns as both singles and as a complete box. On to the eye candy, you can click on the pictures to enlarge them 🙂

Crazy Aaron’s Thinking Putty – Foxfire UV Reactive Fun!
Crazy Aaron’s Thinking Putty can stretch like rubber and bounce like a ball, and because it’s silicone-based, it won’t dry out or crumble over time. It’s part toy, part stress reliever, part physical therapy and entirely addictive. Once you start playing, it’s hard to stop!
Foxfire is the name of an eerie glow created by phosphorescent fungi in decaying wood. A natural wonder, foxfire is often associated with magical things like woodland fairies and the will o’ the wisp.
Foxfire Thinking Putty is equally wondrous. This glimmering light green putty shines a bright blue with a green edge in the dark. Plus, you’ll reveal a supernatural glow when you draw on Foxfire with the included Glow Charger™.
Each tin includes 1/5 lb of Foxfire Thinking Putty—a huge handful for tons of fun—and a Glow Charger.
We have a variety of 2 inch and 4 inch tins of Crazy Aaron’s Thinking Putty available at our retail location.
Come visit our retail location in downtown Crescent City.

Breyer Sapporo – Breyer 2018 Stablemate Club Special Ready To Order
Whip out your wallet Breyer Stablemate Club members, Sapporo is ready to order! He is a new Stablemate mold and is a miniature version of the Brishen mold. The current release on the Brishen mold is the Gypsy Vanner. Just look at how well this fellow translated to miniature!
What’s not to love about Breyer’s Brishen mold? Sure, he might not have the most realistic sculpting but goodness is he ever handsome! I am delighted that Breyer chose to add a Stablemate sized Brishen to the lineup! Speaking of, have you heard about the mini ALBOROZO mid year release? Can you hear me squealing? How about now?? Yes we will have these complete boxes of the Breyer 2018 Stablemates Mystery Unicorn for sale but we don’t yet have the exact price worked out. Helloooo Alborozo! Oh yes he will be mine…
The cost of Sapporo is $15 plus $5.59 for domestic shipping which includes a $5 credit for the Stablemate Club Membership fee. This brings the grand total for Sapporo to $35.59. If you are a current member of the Breyer 2018 Stablemate Club you can see Sapporo at this link. Here is what Breyer has to say about Sapporo:
The Third Release in the 2018 Stablemates Club
Sapporo embodies the joyful demeanor of the Gypsy Vanner! His coat is a warm shaded dapple grey that evokes the feeling of cool, snowy mountains. This is only the second time this miniature of Kathleen Moody’s Gypsy Vanner has been released, and it’s exclusively for Stablemates Club members! Sapporo comes in a miniature Traditional-style window box

Callahan – Breyer 2018 Collectors Club Exclusive Gambler’s Choice
Squee, it’s CALLAHAN! Gosh, I’ve been truly terrible about keeping up on Breyer news. However, Callahan truly deserves a blog post of his own so here we are! He is the Breyer 2018 Collector’s Club Exclusive Gambler’s Choice model. If the same pattern follows as past year, this will be the only Classics Gamblers Choice model offered for 2018. However, there has been a Traditional Scale Gambler’s Choice Holiday model released released by Breyer these past few years. The 2017 holiday season featured Emerald, Amethyst and Sapphire (original blog post here).
The Breyer 2017 Gambler’s Choice model was Calvin (original Calvin blog post here).
The Breyer 2016 Gambler’s Choice model was one of my very favorites, Scotty (original Scotty blog post here)!
Similar to Scotty, Breyer kept with the ‘mini me’ theme and this time features popular colors featured on the Wintersong or Othello mold (the current release on the Wintersong mold is Xavier the Mystical Unicorn). What is especially neat about Callahan is that he features the same mold Wintersong where as Scotty featured three different molds (Cleveland Bay, Strapless and Nokota.) To my knowledge, Calvin was not a miniature model of any particular model horses. Callahan is the Breyer Classics Shire B mold in a tantalizing trio of colors. For reference, the Breyer Classics Shire A mold does not have his head tucked like Callahan. An example of the Breyer Classics Shire A mold is Triton.
The three colors that Callahan comes in are:
Matte silver bay with silver and blue ribbons and bobs. He is a miniature version of the highly sought after Silverado.
Glossy Silver Filigree with red and green ribbons and bobs. He is a miniature version of Silver Snow (I regret selling this one!)
Glossy Palomino Sabino Pinto with gold and purple ribbons and bobs. He is a miniature version of Pamplemousse.
Direct from Breyer, Callahan’s price is $30 plus $10.95 for domestic shipping (boo FedEx SmartPost!) This brings the total to $40.95 which I feel is quite reasonable. I’m hoping for the silver bay Callahan and I’m betting that many other people are as well. Some day I will own a Breyer Silverado but I would be thrilled with a miniature version for now. Let us know who your favorite color is and what color you receive. I should start a poll for this! Have I mentioned SQUEEE?!
Here is what the Breyer website has to say about Callahan (Breyer website link here):
A Breyer Collector Club Exclusive Gambler’s Choice!
