one person who will never let you down, it's Pierre, better known as the
customizer Airmax. During the course of a phone conversation, Julius Marx
and Iron-Cow were discussing this and wanted to do something as a token
of appreciation for their friend. Iron-Cow remembered a Pierre mentioning
once that he has acquired a Marvel Legends Mimic custom by fellow customizer
Pablolobo. Pierre was so happy with the results that at some point he'd
like to commission a few other people to have their own take on the character.
done so many wonderful things for a lot of people and Julius Marx and
Iron-Cow agreed it was the least they could do for their friend.

deadline, but those pieces will be shown off at a later date.

Animated Mimic - by Lars
scale Mimic figure continues the line of Marvel Animated characters.
League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Mimic - by Joshua Izzo
of Mimic posed the question, what would Mimic look like
were he a Victorian/Neo-Romantic Dandy? This custom was a lot of fun and
knowing that it was going to my friend Pierre made it all the more
of Mimic is based on a design that takes the character back to
the late Victorian Era of the 1890's. He has limited articulation (8
points) and comes with a black display stand. Included with this figures
a Cane and an X-Men themed pocket watch (not shown).

multiple points of articulation and stands 6" tall.
Super Heroes Mimic - by Julius Marx
Mimic I found myself channeling the spirit of the Iron-Cow and making
multiple entries instead of the one I was asked for or channeling Pierre
himself and going above and beyond the call of duty. After all Airmax
was the one the pioneered the "Julius Marx Animated Super Powers"
project when my daughter was born. Filling out his new Mimic shelf is
the least I can do. I just hope he really likes Mimic the way that he
says that he does!
Super Heroes Mimic was SO easy and I had all the parts I couldn't NOT
make it. His base is one of the Legion of Super Heroes Pocket Heroes.
I don't know which one because I got is accidentally thrown in with a
mail order of other PSH and I'm not into Legion at all. So he's a Legion
guy primed and repainted with Hawkgirl wings. I added a big toe to each
foot to help with the look the style bit still give the impression he
Mimic - by Julius Marx
came about just because will I was fishing out the Legion PSH from the
back of my display I happed to look down and see I had a spare Vulture
HeroClix on the shelf below, and thought, "How easy would THAT be?"
So, here he is. He is a Marvel Vulture HeroClix with the armor dremmeled
off, a milliput visor and repainted.
Powers Mimic Action Figure - by Julius Marx
to get the "Beast"- like sqatty-ness for the character I used
a Hawkman body (not only is it big and stocky, but the wings already attach
to it.), wing and arms and Parademon legs. I rounded off his talons and
added some extra toes with milliput to give him the big feet he needed.
He has an Aquaman head and cut vinyl goggles. Unlike Airmax who does AMAZING
kit-bashed Frankenstein customs, for some reasons when I comes to Super
Powers customs I try to only use Super Powers parts (or other Kenner stuff
of that era). I think that is because the first custom Super Powers figures
I ever saw were from Scooter's Custom Works and that how he operated.
Evolution Mimic - by Matt ‘Iron-Cow’ Cauley
My own Mimic
contribution is based on the character's appearances in the X-Men Evolution
comic book series. This first version is of Cal as an everyday high school
kid, unaware of the power he possesses...
Evolution "Powered-Up" Mimic - by Matt ‘Iron-Cow’
custom of Mimic is based on his arrival to the X-Mansion. He is ill-equiped
to handle the exposure to so many powers, and his own abilities go berserk.
Rather than being based on the traditional X-Men, his X-Men Evolution
appearance incorporates the abilities of Nightcrawler, Spyke, Cyclops,
Wolverine, Jean Grey and Rogue.
Marvel 5" Mimic - by Toy Otter
name strikes fear in the heart of criminals, as he busts from the pack
on his crazy mimic-powered wings! The X-Men can't match his bad-ass treachery
of fear! Cower, criminals, cower! The Mimic has
you by the throat and the balls of crime! Cal Rankin shall forever smack
it down, boy-ee!
Mimic - by SamuRon
of Mimic is based on his later years. This figure features multiple points
of articulation and comes equipped with an ice spear.

told me about the Mimic project for Airmax, I went running to my old dog-earred
copies of the 'Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe, Book of the Dead'.
Since my customizing leaves much to be desired, I decided to go with what
I know. So I just drew up a sketch of Mimic carrying some stylin' sneakers.
I doubt they'd fit over his gigantic, Beast-like feet, but what the hey!
Universe Mimic Concept Art - by Tommy aka therewasme
always just another face in the crowd. He was unexceptional, having just
finished two years of community college and now trying to "find himself"
while working a dead end job flipping burgers. All of that changed when
he took a shortcut home through Times Square and witnessed the first public
appearance of the group known as the X-men. Later that night, he woke
from his sleep to discover that he now had all of their powers, from the
ability to form ice to telekinisis and telepathy. Realizing the extent
of his mutant powers, Calvin secretly sought out the X-men, always a face
in the crowd, picking up each of their abilities as they began to make
more public appearances and after saving DC from the mutant known as Magneto.
But just like before, Calvin is still "finding himself" by picking
up the traits of others, unsure when he'll need to pick a side in the
struggle for mutant freedom.
Ultimate Mimic includes multiple points of articulation along with a variety

a few appearances, this
unusual mutant made quite an impression on the comic book world. Now 30
years later, The Mimic is being
given his own line of figures.
