Back in 2005 Unicorns were all the rage. At least they were for us. We did the Avenging Unicorn and then decided to spin off the line in new and fantastic directions. Below are some of our unproduced designs. Perhaps, they will be made someday, but until then, they, like actual unicorns, exist only in our minds. (Click on the pictures below for larger version.)
Fairy Land is ruled by the Fairy Queen with an iron fist in a tiny velvet glove. The peppermint trains run on time, but at what cost? How many freedoms must an elf give up? Why are the dwarves forced to live underground? The Anarchistcorn wants to destroy the rule of fairy law!
Actually, we’re located in Seattle, so the WTO protests probably influenced this a bit. Now, we’d probably put the unicorn in a V for Vendetta “Guy Fawkes” mask.
This is what we came up with when we imagined what mythic figure would come to collect unicorn’s souls when they died. We tried it first with a hooded robe, but horns and hoods don’t mix.
When trying to decide who would fight the Commiecorn, this was our first thought. It didn’t quite work, but there’s something appealing about a unicorn with a dollar sign on his rump. This would be the symbol of the First Bank of Fairy Land.
Rainbowcorn is just free to be who he wants to be! There was disagreement about this unicorn, some felt it should have the traditional star and rainbow on its side, but others felt the zebra stripe rainbow was the way to go. As it turned out, neither one was actually made!
This one came the closest to actually being produced until someone pointed out that unicorns get seasick really easily.
Luckycorn comes a little close to My Little Pony. Most people think of Ireland when they look at him, so it’s all far too confusing.
We have no memory of why this unicorn exists or why he was supposed to be funny.
Get it? Corn Dog + Unicorn = Unicorndog. That’s funny! Hello? Tap tap. Is this thing on?
One final bonus item, the unicorn steak. What would happen if you went to a butcher shop and asked for unicorn? What would it look like? Should we make a candy like that? This is what it would have looked like if we had.
