  • "Mimeo Vs Stalker" by Axel Giménez (based on concept art by Mark Taylor)

    Check out this awesome artwork by Axel Giménez, based on the original character designs for "Mimeo" and "Stalker" by Masters of the Universe artist Mark Taylor.

    The artwork by Axel Giménez was commissioned by Matthew Rodriguez (creator of Defenders of Eden).

    I had asked Axel Giménez to do an image for me of two unused Mark Taylor concepts from masters of the Universe. Turned out incredible! I showed Mark Taylor and Rebecca Taylor, and they both loved it. I've always been in love with concept artwork. Seeing what could have been in the 80s, what was tweaked, or never got to... Seeing the characters in action like this is just awesome!

    Stalker is very reminiscent of the character Evil Seed, who appeared in the Filmation cartoon series. In particular, he shares many similarities to the updated version of Evil Seed shown in the 2002 cartoon series.

    “Mimeo” (a new name approved by Mark Taylor for his unnamed character design) was an early concept design that lead to the eventual creation of Man-E-Faces. The character was envisioned to have 5 swappable masks and a removable cloak. This would have been a great “army builder” character, had it been made as a toy.

    Simply awesome, especially knowing that both characters were the early concepts of Evil-Seed and Man-E-Faces!

      Those designs are awesome. I really like Mimeo! His costume looks similar to Flipshot, and I bet those colors inspired that NA design.

        Really cool artwork. I've never seen these characters before. They would make great MOTU figures!
