From time to time models prepared with sanded seams and white primer have been released as a part of a Breyer Day Painting Kit for various events, promotions, and dealer extras. These have no solid dates associated with them and are generally considered outside of the conga line-up.

There are rumors of a Wedgwood blue Mule given away as a dealer's gift in the early 2000s, but I cannot locate my source of information, only saw it mentioned that once in passing, and have never seen one anywhere online, so unless other evidence surfaces, I will leave that model in the list of legends.
