BreyerWest 2017 Photos!

BreyerWest 2017 took place this past weekend, March 24-26! I wasn't able to attend, sadly, but luckily for us, Breyer posted some photos from the event on their Facebook page! I was mostly interested in the Breyerfest models, but there are a few other interesting things here.

(Photos are from Breyer's Facebook page, and faces have been cropped out)

First up is a view of one corner of the Breyer booth, where we can see Vahana, Darjeeling, Saffron, Nazruddin, Sokkar and Rangoli.


Nazruddin looks really nice, and so does Saffron. I was halfheartedly hoping Breyer would reveal another special run at this event, but no such luck. Oh well.

Next, a view from just around the corner of the booth - on a different day, when the models had been rearranged.

Not getting a good angle on Sokkar in either of these photos, but Saffron (and Vahana) look mighty handsome. Let's see what's next!


It's a view from the opposite corner of the booth! Nothing particularly earth-shattering, but there is a view of Saffron's off side, which we don't have a photo of on the Breyer site.

Astute viewers may notice that Kaalee is not in attendance, along with the store specials Repeat the Beat and Dally and Spanky. I remember hearing last year that Breyer only keeps one or two examples of each model on hand, and if one isn't available to bring along, for whatever reason (such as Kaalee and the others) they simply aren't available to view. Patience, readers! We're a mere 15-ish weeks away from Breyerfest and the time will go by fast!

Lastly, here's a view of another part of the Breyer booth, showing some of the new for 2017 releases.

I really like the color on Espresso, the Springtime Filly. If only I were a fan of the mold, and/or the gigantic scale. I'm honestly surprised they continued the series (albeit with a delay) after Camilla's lukewarm reception, but I suppose they need to at least try to get back their investment in the mold.

That's all I've got for tonight - let's hope Breyer releases another special run model soon! We're down to 2 1/2 weeks until the early bird deadline, and they still have 3 special run line models and the surprise teaser left to reveal! Hurry up already!
