garudan is in the back left corner
Black Odoron is actually from 2010. Came with the gold disc eyes. Time Flies....
All intel appreciated. Forgot this guy . . .
How/when/where similarly appreciated!
Collaboration with Charactics. 2008. Came with the airplane.
Ahhh, I see the wing! You’re right!
Did my Zag highjack @Anti Social Andy Zag’s plane or did they do two versions - TO Zag with standard plane and standard Zag with TO plane?
Definitely the latter! I recall them being a mix and match pair of releases at the time, but was curious if the croucher was released as a 'standalone' dude.
There was also a painted "T/O" Odoron:
The version above is from 8/11/2007 ( I THINK you had to glue in the propellers)
Andy's is 9/27/2008 (Propellers were already intact and part of the front plane)
Gargamel website still has the archives on their website.

Yes, you are correct - I have the props - they are black and there are instructions for how to fit them.
But bizarrely featuring gold instead of the trademark red!
The sticker with the Odoron looks like Usugrow, isn't it?
It's been so long, I can't remember his name. Not Usugrow. Really nice dude. Was professional skater in Japan, and now talented artist/tattooooo person.
Joe (Maxaltoman) has the thrashout version of odoron which is the one off. It's in his instagram
It's a collaboration with him and Gargamel. Toshikazu used to run asianwaveskate and his instagram is below.
Thanks Bryce. I wonder what he is up to? last IG post 307 weeks old, and the link to website is dusty. I have one of his paintings buried around here somewhere. I need to hunt for that. Odoron has to be top 10 Gargamel sculpt. It's so good. The hidden boat. I loves it.
Thanks for the context. I love the sculpt even more, now knowing it's heritage!
no activity for 10 months but here's his current insta https://www.instagram.com/toshikazu1/?hl=en
I see I am already following that one. Maybe he is like me. Starts something, gets it rolling, forgets password, abandons everything.
This is somewhat random, but I discovered recently that Nozaka-san did the design for a Hot Wheels Datsun 510 that was sold at the Japan Hot Wheels Collector Convention in 2022.
I'm not familiar with Gargamel's older stuff, but I was surfing through their gallery from the links that were posted (thank you bryce_r), and would agree that Odoron is fantastic. There's a water/wave blue colorway that's fantastic. Elegab also has a "wave monster" called Namira that's super rad. Maybe I just like ocean monsters.
Odoron is under appreciated.
better late than never... I didn't get back home to grab mail until today, and I was super happy to find the Zag as well as the thrashman and the rest of the gang!
