So many fond memories of GCs! Along with MLP and LPS, those are what we played with the most, my cousin and I. I still have my regular sized ones and quite a few that I have found second hand. I still remember getting them for birthdays and Christmas.  Did anyone else have the GC pets? I found a birthday picture of me holding one that was a collie. I wish I still had all of the micro minis. I loved those and don't know why I don't have them especially since I kept the others.

It's neat if they bring them back! I would love getting the micros and possibly some of the others.  I like the packaging too.

Thanks again Leave a Whisper. I'll have to took for Wild Alice now as well as Fox Croft. :)

I was disappointed that I couldn't do anything with my colts hair because it was too short to really brush.

I sent them a message asking if it was possible to purchase directly from their site and if they were a repro retailer, or a private seller. I'm curious to see the answers.

I see that they brought back that awful trotting Horse Country Mould. Yuck!

The Micro Minis and FNN look super familiar.
 The Grand Stable looks like a dead ringer for the original. But some of the horses look new. I'm really confused and cautiously hopeful.


I also noticed they brought back the Horse Country rearing mould instead of the GC rearing or Levade mould. Ick!

Too late.  :facepalm:



The sorrel family is nice and I like the bay Arabian family, but the shading is awful. I'd love to pick up the palomino foal.

Do these horses have names?

How exciting! I really hope they are coming back, I love GC's. I still have most of my childhood herd and I've been finding quite a few at thrift stores.

I haven't heard back from these people and I swear that pinto mini is Patchwork. I'm feeling a little suspicious.

I think their site is under construction - on a google search it says 'coming soon' under their site heading. I think it would be hard to fake as it were because they're photographed 3D objects. I'm gonna give it a few months and keep checking back :)

If anyone is looking to purchase any vintage Grand Champions I'm trying to sell my childhood collection.  I LOVED them, and took very good care of them.  There are a few I planned on sending to eBay, but if anyone is interested please message me.  Willing to make a sweet deal!

Here are some pics:
(Happy to take more for anyone interested)

^Your collection is lovely, Stiletto! I'm not looking to buy but I'm sure someone will. They're hard to find in the wild.

So many fond memories of GCs! Along with MLP and LPS, those are what we played with the most . . . .
Same for me and my sister! I also still have my childhood collection. Two of my first and favorites were the velvet versions of Velvet Twilight and Shadow, and then my beloved Tennessee Walker family.

I'd love to see Grand Champions in stores again. I'm not sure what to make of the ones on this website! They say 20th anniversary on their boxes, but as far as I know, the original line started around 1994; 2017 should be the 23rd anniversary, then?

I'm pretty sure the pinto FNNs are Painter's Palette and Rainbow's End, just rehaired.

Ugh those HC moulds kill my eyes... they look so broken! I'd love to see GCs back on shelves though, there's definitely a few there I'd buy, I was always a huge sucker for the foals in particular.

I'm guessing they have names, as the bio cards are back according to the description.
