Breyer Rialto New Web Special Run Appaloosa Totilas
Meet Rialto, the most recent Breyer Web Special Run. He is product number 712253 and is the seventh release in the America the Beautiful Series. Breyer made a comment on their Instagram account regarding watching their account after the lightning fast sell out time of Koh-i-Noor. I can’t help but wonder if Rialto was the surprise horse that Breyer was referring too. Like Koh-i-Noor, Realto is on the Totilas mold and has a glossy finish. I was just thinking last week how we need a new regular run on the Totilas mold but a Web Special Run will suffice! I missed out on Koh-i-Noor and I am hoping that I am drawn for Rialto. Rialto is the Totilas mold in a gorgeous glossy black leopard appaloosa with pinking and mottling. He is limited to 350 pieces. I’m sure that he comes with the dreaded clear plastic disc for a stand but I have an extra resin stand for Totilas just waiting (fingers crossed) for a Rialto to make use of 🙂
Make sure that you are logged into your Breyer Collector’s Club account and click this link to see Rialto’s page. Here is what Breyer has to say about Rialto.
The Seventh Release in the America the Beautiful Series
In 2018, Breyer’s America the Beautiful Series celebrates special places of beauty and wonder – our National Parks & Forests! From deep, dry canyons to soaring snowcapped mountains, to rolling hills and plunging waterfalls, these beautiful horses honor our country’s diverse landscape. Varied like our nation’s scenery, the horses in this series will delight your imagination and encourage you to explore!
The third release in the 2018 series draws its inspiration from Washington’s Olympic National Park. The park covers almost a million acres, and includes coastline, mountains, and rain forests. The ocean meets the coastal forest at Rialto Beach. Views are punctuated by the incredible sea stacks, which are large rocky formations that jut out of the water near the shore. Worn down by the waves and wind, they stand silent watch over the coast.
Rialto’s unique glossy leopard Appaloosa coat is a tribute to Rialto Beach. The beach is covered with round black basalt rocks, similar to Rialto’s leopard spotting! Rialto comes with a clear base, and his belly is marked with “Rialto 2018.”
Your Price: $175.00
Limited Edition: 350 Pieces
Current Collector’s Club Members may enter for the chance to purchase Rialto once per day through May 21st. Winner’s will be notified by 5pm EST on May 22nd. The price to purchase Rialto direct from Breyer is $175 plus shipping. I assume that shipping will be $17.50 but I was pleasantly surprised to find that Starlet only cost $14.50 to ship.

Breyer Starlet – New 2018 Collector’s Club Special Run
Today, Breyer released a new special run for Breyer 2018 Collector’s Club Members. Here name is Starlet and she is The Winner of Who Wore It Best! I hope that I was the only one to misread Breyer’s announcement title! Starlet is a bay blanket appaloosa on the Croi Damsha or Connemara Mare mold. She is product number 712262. Breyer describes the color as a bay dun appaloosa. I’m not sure if this color exists but it does seem a fitting name. I don’t see any primitive markings or barring but I do see some brown shading at the top of her tail.
This mold was originally sculpted for the Breyer Premier Club by Sarah Minkiewicz and is 1 of only 2 molds sculpted by Sarah for Breyer to date. The current run on this mold is Banks Vanilla.
The other mold sculpted by Sarah Minkiewicz is Imperador das Aguas JM or Mangalarga Marchador who was the BreyerFest 2016 Celebration Horse.
Starlet is priced at $75 plus $14.50 for domestic shipping. This brings the price to $89.50 including postage. There is a limit of one Starlet per account. Having said that, I forgot to reserve my Fletcher from Breyer and would be interested in trading a Starlet for a glossy Fletcher.
Make sure you are logged into your Breyer Collector’s account and you can view Starlet directly at this link. Here is what Breyer has to say about Starlet:
The Winner of Who Wore it Best!
Exclusively for Breyer Collector Club members!
Last summer we asked you to choose from three beautiful – yet very different – models who were all sporting the same deco: Strapless, the Connemara Mare, and the Fighting Stallion. We’ve tallied the votes and the people have spoken – the Connemara Mare “Starlet” is the winner! This Collector Club Special Run has a beautifully-shaded bay dun blanket appaloosa coat and striped hooves, and certainly “wore it best.” A starlet through-and-through, this feisty Connemara mare can’t help but be the center of attention!
Limit one (1) Starlet model per Collector Club member, while supplies last
*Note: Offer available to valid, current 2017/2018 and 2018 Collector Club members in good standing only, while supplies last. Item may not be available when you visit the website. Starlet is excluded from all discounts, promotional codes, sales, and/or special offers at this time. Any remaining models which have not been purchased by Collector Club members may be sold to general consumers on BreyerHorses.com, at Reeves sole discretion.

Sierra Rose a BreyerFest 2018 Special Run
I have been woefully behind on keeping up with blog posts, Instagram posts and everything social media. Sorry guys! I wanted to share the BreyerFest 2018 Sierra Rose Special Run. She is the Breyer Proud Arabian Mare in a lovely dapple rose grey. I personally am a huge fan of the PAM mold and I couldn’t be more pleased with this special run offering. This is the first large run size that has been done on the Proud Arabian Mare mold in many years!
Sierra Rose was on display at BreyerWest 2018. In person, her dapples aren’t what I would classify as fishscale. Her coloring was soft and lovely. Sierra Rose is on my must have list! Here is a picture of her that I took at the Breyer booth.
Here is what Breyer has to say about Sierra Rose:
Sierra Rose is on our fan favorite Proud Arabian Mare mold (#215) which was sculpted by Maureen Love. Sierra Rose is a softly dappled rose grey and is as lovely as can be.
Sierra Rose was named for the picturesque Sierra Nevada Mountains, where the Tevis Cup is held annually. The Tevis Cup is a 100-mile long endurance ride that lasts a full 24 hours and has been taking place annually since 1955. The riders in this competition traverse the Sierra Nevada Mountains in their quest to win this legendary endurance competition. Sierra Rose’s beautiful rose grey coloring reminded us of the stunning sunsets in Sierra Nevadas.
