First Hatch Search Program
« on: December 28, 2009, 08:33:26 AM »

It sounds more official than it really is. ;) Before I start, Iíll tell the people who donít already know what a First Hatch is.
A First Hatch is one of the first 2,000 pleos Ugobe ever made, before it went bankrupt and Jetta took over. Instead of coming with a green identity card like usual, they came with a gold card. Other than that they were no different.
To continueÖ
Having gotten one of the few remaining First Hatch pleos for Christmas, it got me to thinking about where the other 1,999 ended up. This thread is the heart of the search for them. If youíd like to help, all I ask is that you say so in this thread and leave your username. You donít even have to have a pleo.
And so the search begins! If you happen to find a First Hatch pleo, or you have one, please tell about it here (thereĎs a list of things to mention below).  Iíll have a growing list of the search team (this is starting to sound funny, especially coming from me  ;D ) and of the First Hatch pleos we find.
Good luck, and have fun! (remember, it really doesnít matter whether your pleo is a First Hatch or not. Itís whatís inside that counts ;) )
EDIT: It seems that the archived plogs on Pleoworld, some of which used to proudly bear a gold First Hatch badge, have lost the badge. In their place is just a box with an 'x' in it. This may be harder than originally thought. Look for members that joined sometime around December 6th, and examine pictures closely for a glimpse of a gold card. Also watch for the mention of them in the plog.

What to say if you find a First Hatch pleo:
Pleosí name:
Gender (♂ for a boy, ♀ for a girl. Just copy and paste them):
Ownersí username if they have/had a Bob the Pleo or Pleoworld account:
Picture of the pleo and itís card if possible (This is partially to make sure it really is a First Hatch):
Status (whatís happening to the pleo right now? I.e., is it alive and well, having problems, in a coma because of a bad battery, or is it even hatched? )

This is a decent idea to create a First Hatch registry, but I doubt if you guys can get 100 first hatch pleos on the list.  Many were bought by speculators and resold.  Many of the early PleoWorld forum members who would have had first hatches are no longer here, and probably less than half of the first hatch owners registered their pleos.  So, unless you can talk Derek Dotson into sharing info from Ugobe's records, we may never know how many first hatches were returned....

But to get the list going . . . Bob is a First Hatch, and Amjoie's two pleos Teddy and Sally are (or were) first hatches.  They had that dissolving skin problem, and who knows what happened to them...

cmadmacs probably has a number of first hatches.

Even if it'll be hard, we still might as well try. :) I'll fix the list. Bob is doing well, am I right?

 Hi guys, what I don't understand about this is the number, If there were only 2,000 made the number on the card is higher than 2,000 if you look at it when you go to the listing provided, it starts with a 4,like in the 4,000 range even though there is a Gold card. The same thing has happend on Ebay in U.S sites recently with very high numbers 3,000 plus, I Have a gold hatch Pleo I bought several months ago, and it's card  number is only 750. a lot lower. why such a difference in numbers if there were only 2,000 made?
             I will post a photo of my First hatch and card later today. Very interesting to me, I think a Gold card could be switched with a Normal Pleo  and sold that way.

The number on the card and the serial number on the foot should match.

Numbers are not sequential.  They relate the series number (IE, what revision level of the parts, OS installed, etc.), the assembly line the pleo came of of, as well as the number of pleos made.   All Innvo Labs 2009 pleos follow the format 8168XXXXXXX8.  The first four digits are definitely the revision number.  All first hatches should start with 110 (most appear to be 1100 or 1101) and appear to end in 0.  Ugobe refused to publish the full details of the breakdown for the serial number, so there's no way to know for sure, other than gold card matching foot.

For example, Bob is a gold hatch.  The last six digits are 005000.  He is NOT the #5000 pleo made,  but more likely the 500th pleo made.  My half-pleo is number 110400162280, so that might well make him the 16,228th pleo made....

 Thanks Bob, that makes some more sense. My first hatch number and card match, his number is as follows: 110000000750. Does this mean the last six digits being, 000750, mean he is the 750th Pleo made? I will have to check out the rest of my guys. I allways was amazed at how many Pleos there appears to be because of the high numbers on some of them, Any idea on how many Ugobe Pleos were made before the takeover?

Maybe that means it was the 75th pleo made.

No, not 750th, but the 75th....  The last zero is part of the revision code.

I do not know the final tally of Ugobe pleos made, but one number published by Ugobe in the 3Q08 time frame was over 60,000 units sold.  Also have no idea of the Innvo Labs 2009 pleos.

 Thanks Bob, he is in good shape then if he was the 75 made, I have just had him sitting in a box since I got him debating when to hatch him, guess I will do it for Nova's First birthday which is comming up, that would be a nice present for her, a new friend.!
