We've just received this year's list of retiring models, and it's an extensive one. Breyer has already ceased producing these models, so it won't be long before they're unavailable. If you've been on the fence about buying any of these, we suggest grabbing them now before they are gone for good. (You can always sell them later if you decide you're not in love with them, right?)
Here's the list - Those we have available at the time we're writing this will include a photo and a link to purchase them:
Fantasia Del C and Gozosa (we're trying to get more)
Latigo Dun It (only one left!)
GG Valentine and Heartbreaker
Justify Resin Figurine
Show Stable Accessories
Classics (Freedom Series):
Grey Arabian Horse & Foal
Gift Set Pack 6 pc Asst
Deluxe Animal Hospital
Zebra Foal (old model only)
Timber Wolf - Howling (Tawny Colored #88341. We're trying to get more.)
So, what are our biggest surprises in the list this year? Pepto and Empres! Both still sell pretty well and we thought they'd get another year. We're also a little surprised that the CollectA Zebra mare is being retired - After all, they just added a brand-new Zebra foal this year. Maybe a new Zebra sculpt will be coming? We hope so, or Baby will be rather lonesome.
What are we looking forward to or hoping for in 2020? Given the number of models retired, we're looking forward to a rainbow of new colors on our favorite molds! We haven't seen Silver as a regular run in a while... We'd love to see him appear in a new color. I expect we'll see the Andalusian Mare in a new color, and wouldn't we love to see a brighter color on Valegro? We would indeed! I also really hope (and keep asking) Breyer will decide to pick up the CollectA grulla Fjord, who was one of our best sellers that they didn't pick up, along with the CollectA golden sorrel Arabian mare. Fingers crossed!
What were your surprises on this list? What are you hoping for in 2020?
