Mimic was my very first international trade.

I remember this so well because she was my first.

She arrived on the 17th November 1997 from the United States of America. I was fifteen. The whole trade was arranged by trade and it was 6 months before I could reciprocate (IN PERSON) when the trader was visiting family in the UK (note, my parents entirely knowing and supportive and involved in all of this process xD).

I had been warned she wasn't in great shape, but actually, she is. She just has ink on the base of her feet.

I had no idea she was expensive or valuable or any of that. The trader just said, "She's a little bit harder to find, but if you don't mind if she's not perfect, I know someone who has one for sale".

I traded a Gypsy for her. This was back when Gypsy had only just become known to international traders and all of the UK ponies sold for higher prices. Gypsy was particularly sought after back then, and to be honest, in terms of release, rarity, etc, I STILL consider Mimic and Gypsy to be about the same, even though I am fairly sure Gypsy doesn't match Mimic's prices any more.

I saw the Golden Horseshoes for the first time aged 13 and fell in love with Mimic from that moment.

It was only later that I understood that she had this "online aura" about her xD. It's been there more than 20 years, so I don't suppose it will change soon.

I am lucky enough to own her.  She was the last pony I bought as a kid, when my family and I drove down to Disney World in...1992 I believe.  From some random store on the way back, I still had money left over that I had to spend  :lol:

Well I have her :)
And her story is that I found her on Ebay USA with BIN for a great price in 2010. With only a few spots you would have to look good to see them. When I paid a vulcano in Iceland has errupted which made flights not possible because of a huge ash cloud. So I had to wait until that cloud has drifted away before the seller was able to ship her.
I was very happy when she arrived :) The seller was also so kind to put a bag of stickers from an Argentinian album in it.

Want her, TEs are a set I want to complete eventually. I'm sure since she's the priciest of the bunch she'll likely be the last I get my hands on. It's a shame she is so pricey, I do genuinely love her colors and wish she costed less. Love bright ponies!

Ah, Mimic.

Love her green hues (I adore Buttons, green Tootsie etc), hate her commanding price, though! 

Last year I had a very baity, spotty Majesty that I transformed into my interpretation of Mimic (never seeing one in-the-flesh) and for now, this satisfies my "gotta get her" itch.

Definitely want her... at some point! I wish she wasn't so pricey, though.

I love Mimic's colours, her vibrant mane looks great against the dull green of her body.

Same answer as many other people! I love her, not because she's "rare" but just because she's lovely. However, because of her price I will probably never own her. :|
