Stan Grograou  - Kondo

Stan, would you mind telling us a little bit about yourself?
"For as long as I can remember I draw and love monsters in every kind of way. Seven years ago I decided to start a blog and draw a monster a day, to meet an audience of people who love monsters just like me! Seven years later I make more ambitious projects, paintings, illustrations, prints and even trying to make toys !! I'm collecting myself toys, kaiju, designers toys and everything related to monsters !"

Kondo, how and where did this kaiju start?

"Ankama a french publisher already produced a book in France "Diary of the Inhuman Species" about my "monster's work" during the first year, and we decided to make my first kaiju toy, produced by Ankama Japan and manufactured by Obitsu company. I worked with a great sculptor artist named Kondo.. And decided to gave his name to my first Kaiju!!

I've tried to incorporate all manufacturing constraints first when I designed it and the transposition about my design was totally awesome. Kondo did an absolute kick ass kaiju. We released first the glow in the dark version and all the 20ex were sold in few days! "

Kondo made its first apperance over 2 years ago. Now, 2 years later, its second. What happened?

"Few month after we produced the first color version limited to 50ex (the red one !). But after one week Ankama Japan decided to stop to manufacturing toys and other business!  Bad luck!!"

"But I couldn't let this awesome Kaiju monster sleeping in a box in a basement. And like all Japan Monsters sometimes they come back to life to destruct everything around. Kondo is back now, beware. I've got back my rights and I can sell the production by myself and make more color versions if people love him. And it's look like they do. I have only 20ex left for this color run and plan to do an another colorway !"

Have you decided what color vinyl you will use for you next run of Kondo's?

"We've tested clear black and it's pretty awesome too... But I'm not decided to what will be the next color version !!"
