Breyer is doing a set of cats, really small. One of them is a Sphynx. :)
Not a great one, but there's one in there. Unfortunately they are "surprise" packets, so you don't know what you'll get. But hey... SPHYNXES!! :)

I wonder if you could get on eBay to get the specific cat you want?

Okay. That looks like crap lol
Agreed. That is not a very good replica :)
We have several Breyer horses and grew up playing with them, so this is a bit of a dissappointment. My guess is that the size makes it hard to make it accurate, but I would not want to own this.

Uuuhm Am I really stupid when I have no idea who or what Breyer is?

So then you just need to keep ordering surprise packet untill you have the one with the sphynx:)
Breyer are model makers, mostly horses. I collect them.
There are some reeeeeeeaaaally stunning ones, so I had kinda highish hopes for the cats -- but... meh.

This is one I'm still after, if I find a cheapish one. (Huckleberry Bey mold)
But I mainly collect the foals.

That model fits into the palm of my hand and is as detailed as can be. (NOT Breyer, but directly from the artist.)

@Silke Thank for the explanation about Breyer's! That horse is a stunning piece of art. Makes me wonder why the sphynx is so not a sphynx!

I have a sphynx model (see post above) not painted yet, and directly from the artist (Deborah McDermott)
Not cheap, it's tiny (fits in the palm of my hand, and I have small hands.) and comes unpainted (I'm still hunting for a good painter)
Here is a pic of a painted one:

@Silke I love that one so much. I remember you posted this one a while ago and I fell in love.

I was surfing internet to learn more about Breyer's. And is this the same breed (can you say that with a horse?) as Stormy?

Roflmao tell it like it is @Silke!

It’s not only crappy, but have you ever seen a Sphynx that color? Not me..

Also it kinda looks like it’s that rubberized toy material rather than plaster/something hard.

No, Hamlet is a Shetland pony.
Breyer only ever did ONE half way decent Rocky Mountain, and it was a special edition (I think they only made like 500 of them)
