  2. More on the more New Breyers............

    When I got them home from Tuesday Morning, it was a while before I opened them. Right off the bat things were missing out of both boxes. The Fun with Model Horses was missing its booklet about customizing models; bright side is I got a Flash without realizing it until later, I didn't recognize him in grey.
