Repeat the Beat!

 Repeat the Beat's full photo has been posted on the blog! Behold:

Looks like they didn't graft a sheath on there. Probably wouldn't be economical to do it for a run this small, though I wonder how small it will be. Will they change things up and produce fewer this year, since last year's Diablo DC and Dag Dia had pretty lackluster sales? But were the lackluster sales a result of the increased run number or the increased price? Last year's store specials cost $75, as opposed to the $50 in previous years. Probably a little of both, in the end. I can't see the price going down (though I could be wrong), but maybe they'll reduce the run number - 1125 is a bit of a weird quantity anyway.

Whatever they decide to do, I'll be trying my hardest to get this model. I love the mold, and that color is beautiful! From the blog post:

Pete will be making his Breyer debut as a Store Special at BreyerFest 2017 Gateway to India. Pete is a black sabino roan on the Bluegrass Bandit mold (# 585) which was sculpted by Kathleen Moody and Sommer Prosser and introduced in 2008. Pete has 3 high white legs and unusual knee marking as well as a belly spot and a blaze.

Not sure how long we'll have to wait - I doubt this reveal was planned, since the leaked photo only appeared on Monday. Knowing Breyer, we'll probably have to wait a whole month before we see anything new. Bring on the announcements, Breyer!
