I'm always on a lookout for horse figures suitable as steed for some of my figurines and my prayer's were answered while shopping @ Tanglin Mall. I came across this toy shop 'The Better Toy Store' and found this suitable figure. Later to my surprise after browsing through the catalogue of Papo figures, which the friendly store assistant had given me, I realised this is a figure under Personnages Historiques (Historicals) tagged 39805 as Cheval de Cesar. It was manned to be Caesar's horse.
A little history of Papo... is a French designer/manufacturer with more than 15 years in experienced, specialised in a wide range of figurines right from mammals, dinosaur, galactic adventure to knight fantasy. To my knowledge, only 'The Better Toy Store' take in these figures and they do have another outlet at Ngee Ann City.
I especially choose this day to post this review because today is the first day of Chinese New Year and this year is the year of the horse. Coincidentally, I'm born in the year of horse Zodiac so it makes today's post extra meaningful.
In my opinion, this horse figurine is quite well sculpt and possessed the soul of a mightiness to its rider. The color is also close to the famous 'Red Hare' mentioned in 'Romance of Three Kingdoms'. Last but not least, an ideal size for my Lu Bu figure from Shin Sangokumusou 2 Trading Figure series. The two figures is now a perfect match in heaven. Heehee...
ps: Wishing all pink of health and enjoy prosperity this CNY
