Andromeda (Custom Safari Ltd. TOOB Standing Pony)

Andromeda - Custom Safari Ltd TOOB Standing Pony - Martha Bechtel - Left Dark

Andromeda is a Safari Ltd. TOOB standing pony painted a flashy rainbow metallic explosion inspired by the Crab Nebula. She has a sort of sunburst pattern that goes from red on the outside to purple at the center. She has realistic brown eyes, purple and steel gray hooves, rainbow socks, and a faux-bald face with a glossy finish.

I trimmed up her seams a little, but this pony was meant as a fun shelf piece and not a Live (or Photo) Show competitor. The color didn’t like my camera too much (so much sparkle!) but I think I did a decent job of capturing the pattern and the color.

Unlike Orion (who’s missing the purple), Andromeda’s pattern has pearl white beneath some of the rainbow doodles, so she’s got a little extra punch of shiny on her back.

She’s roughly 2.5 inches wide and 2.5 inches high, so bigger than a Micromini or Mini Whinnie (1:64 scale) and smaller than a Stablemate (1:32), so maybe 1:50ish?

This little gal was started in June 2021 as a custom request and finished up July 2021.
