7/24/14- Pony acquisition post #121: G1 Big Brother Steamer!
Year released: 1986
(BEFORE pics on top, AFTER pics on bottom!)
An ebay auction makes me that much closer to completing my collection of big brother ponies! This is Steamer: a pink Big Brother pony part of the first wave in 1986. Just like all other big brother male ponies, he is larger than G1 adult females and has Clydesdale- style hooves (which I LOVE!)
This Steamer is particularly interesting because he has VERY pink hair! Most Steamers I’ve seen have hair that has faded to white (the hair is even pinker in person!). A little restoration was needed, but now he looks outstanding!
Original Condition: Good/fair
Flaws: 2 spots of regrind on his chest (upper right photo), surface dirt, messy and frizzy hair!
Restoration Materials: shampoo, conditioner, soap, toothbrush
Unfortunately the regrind spots cannot be fixed, but a little cleaning of his body and a thick layer of conditioner restored him to near mint condition!
Current Condition: Near mint!!!
