    So far I haven’t been impressed with the store Pastel Rainbow dragons, including the curlie that I got earlier this year, though I do like my hatching kinglet from ebay. Rising Spectral is one of my favorite sculpts and when Spectrals and Risers hit the store tonight I got a Riser … Hoping that I like him “in person”!

    I liked the ebay variation of pastel rainbow better also, makes me wish i would have bid on the baby dragon.

    Thirded. I know they try to vary the color so that the limited production run isn’t the same as the test paint, but flip-flopping the colors just so that it matches the old rainbow more was a poor choice in my opinion. They looked much more pearly with the cooler colors prominent rather than the warmer colors. I would think with the kirin/griffin it wouldn’t make too much of a difference but with the dragons it’s very noticeable.

    I am still a fan of pastels in general but this is a good point. However, I was thinking earlier today that a pastel peacock to match the peacock scheme would be fabulous.

    I really like the pastel mother I got, but I feel like it has more of the cooler colors than some of the other sculpts.  Probably because she is lying on her belly so less of it the warmer color area shows.  Same with the coiled mother which is the other one I really like in that color.  I think the coiled or curled would be prettier with an amethyst rather than a rose quartz stone to pick up the purples.

    I agree; I liked the test paint version of PR better, from what I’ve seen in pictures.  It seemed brighter and ‘more pastel,’ and had a lot less pink/warm coloring.  The test paints made me think of a pearl with a rainbow sheen on top; the store ones make me think of a Rainbow dragon left in the sun too long.  They’re too similar, instead of being complementary.

    It’s a pretty color!  But not as original or exciting as the test version, and so far I’ve been able to resist buying any pieces in it.

    Interested in buying or trading for: GB Pebble Sitting Red Fox in grey, Lap Dragon Test Paints (Pearl Steel Blue, Mystic Umber, Pastel Rainbow, others), & production Lap Dragons with minor to moderate damage!

    Also seeking Breyer SM Swaps bodies in poor to fair condition for customizing.

    I don’t have a “Rainbow” Riser so I won’t be able to show the regular and pastel versions side by side.  Maybe someone else has pieces that they can compare.

    At the moment I’m thinking that the “Pastel Rainbow” Riser will fit with my “Lavender Pearl” and “Shell Pink” Risers, the “Frostberry” Spectral, and maybe my white Riser and Spectral.  We’ll see when he gets here in a week or so.

    I absolutely LOVE how much cool lavender is in the Mother Dragon RP, I just now looked at her picture and really hope when we get the RP Kirins that they also have a lot of those cooler tones and lavenders!

    You know, I went back and looked at the eBay pictures, and I think the difference is less about the colors being flipped, and more that the colors were even lighter than the colors on the store ones.  I think the lighter colors made them look more pearly, while the store colors look more metallic.  I still like them both though!

    Well, I’ve got as many as I could afford right now and I adore them! Need to save up for the OW, Emp, and Secret Keeper now.

    Forever seeking an Old Green Fledge.
