Profile: G1 Thoroughbred Mare #5141

Regular Run Stablemate Assortment
#5141 Thoroughbred Mare
1991-94


As the dates would suggest, this particular run was available in new plastic and briefly in old plastic, too. I was lucky enough to snag one of each, funnily enough, both in the same eBay lot. Anybody here sell a bunch of Stablemates in early November? :)

Compared to my old plastic model, my new plastic girl here is more brown and less red, very matte instead of satin, and is slightly less refined - thickening in the legs and hooves, and an overall slight loss of detail is noticeable. This deterioration of the molds became apparent during the switch from old to new plastic and continued to progress up until the Generation One molds were discontinued. This was more extreme for some molds than others.
