Here at HQ, as we update BreyerFest to make sure fans are getting the most fun experience possible, we are also updating some of the terms we use to talk about the event – particularly with Special Run models.
You might have noticed that page 3 of our Guide to BreyerFest summarizes what’s included in the ticket books our in-person guests will be getting and uses terms like Redemption Tickets, Reservation Tickets, and Wild Card Tickets. Well, what the heck is the difference between all these? It’s easy!
VIP ticket holders will receive Redemption Tickets for their Special Run and Limited Edition Models because these models are already paid for. Simply turn in your tickets at the VIP line of the Special Run Line Tent to collect all your models and you’re all set. Simple as that!
All-Access ticket holders who purchase their tickets by the May 14th deadline will receive online preference forms after May 14th and will use those forms to rank this year’s Special Run Models in order of their preference. The form will include instructions on how to complete these lists depending on the number of tickets you have – you can either do individual lists or a master list, the choice is yours! You can read more about this process on page 7 of our Guide to BreyerFest.
Models will be assigned to each All-Access ticket based on these preferences and your place in the virtual line and Special Run Reservation Tickets will be printed in your ticket books that correspond to the models you’ve been assigned. Bring these tickets to the All-Access Reservations line in the Special Run Line Tent at BreyerFest to receive your models and pay for them on site.
If you miss the preference form, opt not to complete one (which is totally fine), or you purchase your All-Access tickets to BreyerFest after May 14th, you won’t have Special Run models reserved for you, but you’ll still have a chance to buy them on site at BreyerFest, while supplies last.
These All-Access ticket holders with no reservations will receive Wild Card Tickets, which can be redeemed on the Wild Card line at the Special Run Line Tent at BreyerFest. Guests with this ticket type will have access to purchase their Special Runs from the remaining available models, but since we can’t guarantee who will be left if you’ve got your eye on someone specific we strongly recommend that you purchase your All-Access tickets to BreyerFest before the May 14th deadline.
You can read more about this process in our Guide to BreyerFest! Have an Online Traditional Access ticket? Stay tuned, we will cover that soon!
And, you can purchase your All-Access tickets to BreyerFest here!

This talks about the special run, what about the limited edition items, if you are an all access ticket holder?

Last year was our first year at BreyerFest so we were a little confused about the Special Run selections. We did reserve what we wanted ahead of time, and received redemption tickets with our All Access Tickets. But, when we were on-site, we saw other options in person. Is there no way to ‘swap’ our reserved tickets in the Wild Card line, if we wish to purchase a different horse than we originally signed up for?

How is “your place in the virtual line” determined?

Thanks for giving us a detailed update about this! There was some confusion about this last year! So if you want a Reservation Ticket of your models Instead of a wild card then doing the preference form will help. Last year some people were sad that they were unable to get stein, but its the quantity that Breyer makes of that model plus, how many reservations tickets were chosen for that model. Sometimes, you can’t always get the model you want so doing a preference form will help because you can Reserve the next model that you want on your list incase the one you wanted previously is no longer available. Again, Thanks Breyer for giving us this update. Can not Wait for Breyerfest this Year!

Hi! I purchased my tickets on March 25th and still haven’t received a preference model paper yet? I thought it would have been sent with the tickets? If not could you please let me know when the forum will be sent out, thank you!
