Unbeknownst to collectors, 1992 would mark the end of the Stablemate Assortments issued through the Sears Wish Book. The assortment this year would be one of many firsts: it was the first special run assortment issued in the new plastic, it featured the first unequivocally appaloosa stablemates, and it also contained the first non-grey dappled stablemate. The colour palette for this group was a bit drab compared to past years, but the models were still lovely.
1992 Stablemate Assortment IV
1994 JCPenney 12-Piece Stablemates Set
Both of my Saddle Club II sets were bought new in box, but there was about a decade between their purchases. My first set was made from the usual plastic, but my second set was a bit strange. Like the SR Citation from last Monday's Profile post, the models in the second set I purchased were made from that odd translucent plastic.
I didn't include the G1 Arabian Mare from this set since we saw her recently in the Look-Alike post and I don't own a "normal" version of the run for comparison, but she too is made from the same translucent plastic.
Welcome to our first Look-Alikes post. Here we will cover models that either look similar or sound similar on paper. If you're not overly familiar with the Stablemate releases or are working from a description without pictures, it can be easy to get stuck with the wrong model.
