Variation Spotlight: G1 Arabian Stallion #5181

Regular Run Stablemate Assortment
#5181 Arabian Stallion

Whether you call him bay or chestnut, there's something not quite right about one of these #5181 Arabian Stallions.

The left-hand model with his dusting of black shading and darker points is more typical of the run while the right-hand model is a bit of an oddity. First off, he's made from the translucent plastic which probably means he was produced some time in 1997, the last year of this run. Secondly, though his eyes have been painted, he's missing the rest of his black pigment. I guess whoever was painting him got distracted when it came time to give him that last blast with the airbrush.
