Hey guys, I just picked up a second Sea Breeze yesterday and when I compared her to my current Sea Breeze I noticed a few large differences.

First being the drastic colour variation. The new one is a dark deep orange and the older more light orange. I know this can just be factory and different batches and so on.
The second, the new pony has no fading pink in her tail. Where as the original (to my collection) has a lot of fading pink in her tail.
Lastly, the new one’s plastic seems to be “thicker” than the original. Like there’s a noticeable weight and feeling difference between the two.

Both ponies have the same hoof markings “Pat. Pending, Hasbro ‘87, Made in China” both have the same symbols and eye paint. Fading pink is much more pink still in the newer pony... I know most of this is likely factory defect but just curious if anyone has heard of variants like this with Sea Breeze or not? I may keep both because they’re both stunning and in beautiful condition... lol. My pony hoard starts here. #eyeroll

Here’s pictures. Unfortunately they don’t show the drastic orange difference on each pony. The one on the left is my original and the one on the right is my new pony. :)

That's interesting, yeah I'd go with something during manufacturing. My Sea Breeze looks more like your older one. The newer one looks like she hardly has any of the light pink in her tail. Maybe they were running low on the hair :unsure:

I WAS ABOUT TO MAKE A VARIANT THREAD ABOUT TOOTIE TAILS! I wonder if there are variations to those tropical ponies, or they are just so brightly colored that over the years they handle aging differently. Both are really pretty either way.

I have a feeling it’s comeoletely just batch differences but I was just curious mainly because of the hair differences. Like one has the three colours and the other has just two.
