Profile: G1 Citation #710897

JCPenney Special Run
#710897 12-pc. Parade of Breeds

Apparently Breyer was doing a bit of experimenting with plastic this year as there were some odd things going on in the 1997 JCPenney Stablemate set. The glowing effect the white areas exhibit on my palomino Citation is caused by her being made with a translucent white plastic.

It seems that the plastic type used for each mold wasn't consistent through the run as I have seen this model in the standard plastic. Most of the other molds in my copy of this set were made using the more standard opaque plastic and my other translucents from this set are not quite this dramatic.
