PostSubject: Cloudy TWH: Could this be a Test or Sample Model?   Tue Jan 06, 2015 2:28 am

Some of you may remember the cloudy TWH I purchased from a dealer in my state. I contacted CollectA and fortunately CollectA did replace the model for me.

I do have a little problem though - the new one is a variation! affraid Guess the cloudy one isn't going to be repainted after all lol! I was able to clean him up with some dish soap, thanks for the tip Simone!

Here are the two TWHs, new one on the left, "old" one on the right (darker one is the previous one).

There's a huge difference between the two! Shocked


And I'm thinking perhaps the new one is a test or sample? He didn't have a tag, and there's no number stamped on his belly! Shocked

This is the regular one, see the "1205" stamp?:

And this is the new one, no stamp!:

All the others I've seen are like my darker one, and with the black outline around the white markings. Has anyone ever seen a lighter one like this before? Or without a number? Could he be a test of some sort?

There is always variation, like the Shire Mare.
About the stamps, it only appears on the figurines that sold in USA. But not all of the figurines sold in the USA has the stamp. All of my figurines form CollectA (as gift) don't have the stamps, nor the figurines I bought from Australia (MiniZoo), UK, and Korea. I don't know about the figurines from Europe continent.

None of my CollectAs have the stamp, and they are all regular peeps Very Happy

They are lovely horses though, and as I said before, it's very kind of CollectA Very Happy

No stamps also in my CollectA. It is always a very decent act when brands replace their products when they're not in good condition. Fortunately you're fortunate enough to get variations. Laughing

That's interesting - I don't think I have one model that doesn't have a stamp. lol! Still weird it didn't have a tag though scratch Of course, it probably is a variation as I can't imagine them sending a test!

Even though it - collector spirit wise - is awesome with a test model, I think it would in a general idea seem a little 'rude' to send a test and not a real replacement Rolling Eyes Of course - we can't even expect a replacement - so either act is a very kind by CollectA cheers

My Collecta's are different too. The older, heavier models do have the stamp under their belly but these new light and bendy horses doesn't have one... scratch question

Congrats on such interesting finds. I like the darker one myself.
