Profile: G1 Native Dancer #5311

Regular Run Play Set
#5311 Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron Stablemates Play Set
2005




This lovely lady is the only dappled colour produced on the Native Dancer mold. This run sports a painted US brand as the model was meant to represent one of the 'enslaved' US Cavalry horses encountered by Spirit during his adventures in the movie Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron.

The timing on this set seems a bit odd as the movie had been released three years earlier and Breyer had already released a number of Spirit-themed items in multiple scales - both plastic and porcelain. The two tag-along Stablemate Playsets had a run of barely a year before the G1 molds they contained were replaced by G2 look-alikes. Both sets were finally discontinued at the end of 2007.
