Are they really? Well, there is the possibility they've been better to their horses this year. Some of the horse collectors I've spoken with actually say that Safari's Blue Ribbon line has the best horses these days.
Ah, yes, I do indeed know MPV -- thank you though. There don't seem to be any new sculptures from Breyer this year (just models with new paint using existing moulds), which is fair enough; with perhaps one exception which was previously released in porcelain.
Not that anybody else cares, sorry. Just rambled on, thinking 'aloud'... ;D
