A single, long lost set of The Last Unicorn concept art has been discovered in storage and is being auctioned this week on eBay

In 2007 Conlan Press published a limited 500-copy edition of Hidemi Kubo’s 1979 concept paintings from the animated Last Unicorn. There were five pictures in the complete set: The Last Unicorn, The Red Bull, The Lady Amalthea, Mommy Fortuna, and The Full Cast.

They sold out of all the complete sets very quickly, as well as all the individual prints of The Lady Amalthea, the Last Unicorn, and The Full Cast.

However — last week a single complete set (#295) turned up in some old convention boxes. This is the very last one there is, and the only way you can get any of the three sold-out pictures.

The set is up for auction on eBay until 8:20 AM on Sunday, March 1st, with the same starting price that the complete sets originally sold for: $75.

    I just found your blog post about the Concept Art prints. Sadly ebay doesn’t keep auction sites for that long. Do you know for what price they got sold?

    I got offered one complete set (#270) and don’t want to pay too much.

    Thank you very much!

    I am sorry that I don’t know what they sold for. They are really hard to find though so if you are really interested, you may want to haggle a bit and then buy it anyway. Good luck!
