  1. Hm. Horses looking like 683 and 684 have been around for months at Taobao (684 is a bootleg of one of the Lego LotR horses), although I was never able to find out about the brand. See e. g. https://ae01.alicdn.com/kf/HTB1bTGkQXXXXXb1XFXXq6xXFXXXs/2pcs-lot-Medieval-Lord-of-the-font-b-Rings-b-font-Castle-War-Nazgul-Horse-With.jpg

    I got one white horse, its mold differs to some extent from the SY165 horse (larger opening at the bottom of the neck), so I only knew (or assumed ;) ) that it was not SY ;) And yes, this horse has a "golden" shiny printing on the forehead and blue and "golden" shiny accents on the forelock, see e. g. http://g02.a.alicdn.com/kf/HTB18xjXPFXXXXbMXVXXq6xXFXXXi/Hobbit-font-b-Lord-b-font-of-the-font-b-Rings-b-font-Knight-Horse-Model.jpg The saddle does indeed look "dull", not shiny.

    However, I have no idea whether these XINH horses are identical to the one I got or whether some other brand has copied it ;D

    Anyway. I will have to get the other two horses 685 and 686. :D

    The four versions 683-686 seem to be used for the other horses 595-602, note the red eyes on the black horses 597, 600, 602.

    1. Wow you're an expert on horses haha but yeah IDK too if those ones you've seen are same as XINH or not. Hopefully though that quality is just as good or better :D

    2. Yeah I'm an expert in Castle stuff XD In fact, I have a passion for armoured horses - and it seems 2017 is going to be a great year XD

      I would guess it is the XINH horses that have been around. The unique design (at least no copy from a Lego set?) does not mean that much nowadays any more, but the two-coloured printing on the forelock in 683 is certainly an unusual feature, and, as stated, it was unclear where these horses originated from, although they had been available from various resellers. The XINH 684 horse has also been released as part of SY251, so was a brown horse that could or could not correspond t0 XINH's 685 (685 looks darker on this picture, but it's just a render). But the resellers always showed these two horses resembling 683 and 684, and never the box of the SY251 horse, nor the other brown horse.

      Which, however, rises the question why the origin should have been unknown for these two XINH horses and/or why they didn't release the other versions at the same time. Whatever.

    3. Alright, now I know where the design for 683 comes from. It's also a bootleg (we could have guessed...), a bootleg of the horses included in Lego 10235 Winter Village Market.

    1. On single sale? Not yet. I'll update asap though IF the bootleggers decide to make them. I think I saw some older SY sets in the past though from LOTR/The Hobbit that had wolves/wargs, just not sure about the availability

    2. There's Lele 78036 (there's a review on Youtube), and there's SY206 A-D, see e. g. https://world.taobao.com/item/544565440383.htm?spm=a312a.7700714.0.0.WaCx0N#detail. They must have been released a few years ago already. You might find them at Taobao sold separately, if that's an option for me.

    5. There was one. It must still be available. You get a grey wolf, white wolf, skeleton horse, and regular horse all comes with figure and quite a few rock and tree type things for a nice set.
