wow haha thats awesome but no it didnt I think the idea is different than that actually.

Mathiole came up with the idea tho, I think it's actually original since I enever really seen it that exact way before.

yeah neither i've saw that toy :p

but today we live in an age with so much information that be "creative" and "original" are two things we can't reach it, totally... and theres 'Collective Unconscious' too...
anyway, i think its different, so.. :p

I really like the markings on the unicorn. it gives it a cool mythological look, like that guy who drew a bunch of art for Magic The Gathering. booyah, Hurloon Minotaur.

Robsoul

yah, because Magic the Gathering invented tattooed mythical animals please add amazing amounts of sarcasm to teh previous sentence, not Brian Froud whose book Faries that came out in the mid 1970s or maybe Brian Froud's work on the Mystics in fucking Dark Crystal.... Magic the Gathering, shiiiiiitttttt. Noob right, right.

Now go piss on an electrical socket...

wait, who am I shouting at? I dunno anymore.
