I’ve spent the last 6 months working on several properties (coughJurassiccough) and luckily have had the pleasure of giving some anatomical input on Spirit models and art.
Seriously, it’s like these people have never seen a horse before. I’ve pulled out my phone to show them how horses look (plus then I get to share all my horse photos! Win-win!!).
What I still can’t wrap my mind around is how the Breyer Stablemates go for $3.99 (blister pack OR blind bag) and the Just Play figures, bling bag only, are $5+!
I mean…look at the quality difference:
Chica Linda sporting that clubbed foot that’s so in fashion.
I don’t know about all of you but I know which one I want to spend my money on.
The majority of our product is pretty nice (I mean, look at that sexy T. rex) but these little Spirit figures really bug me. Interestingly enough the larger toys look great because Breyer designed them and then sold the designs to whoever is producing them now.
Flaca is pretty cute for a floofy horse with a tongue-in-cheek name.
And of course I’ve watched the whole show for work purposes. It’s not amazing but it’s definitely the horse show I wish they had on tv when I was a kid.
Anyway, I really wanted to share those awful little figures with people who would get how bad they really are. Hope you enjoyed that little slice of my life.
If you want to see something else I’ve worked on in the last couple months, just google #AmazonFindsAWay for a pretty fun Jurassic promo with Amazon where they’re delivering the largest shipment ever. I’m pretty proud of all the Jurassic stuff coming out that I’ve helped produce.
