Good idea - I was starting to investigate in that direction as well.  Of course, I need another Pleo right now like I need botulism ...........................  %)  :P

Keep us posted, if you can!  ;D

Oh yay - what brave and intrepid forum members we have here, what with Kat trying the lithium batteries and now you with this, Gaz!!  Keep us posted as to how it goes - did you ask them about a warranty?  ;D

I do think you'll like the RB and should still go for one in the future, but you'd be crazy to get one right now and have to go through all the hassles (and costs) of import duty when it looks as though they will soon be available to buy in Europe.  %)

That's great news, barrettgazzy! Your persistence has paid off! That really sounds like a great deal, especially since it was made in 2011 and you have confirmation of that from Innvo.  Best of luck and let us know how it goes! ;D

new email from Innvo


Dear Gary,

 

For Merlin editon Pleo, it should be PM 2.0. With PM 2.0, the Pleo is more active. He has more room to grow and learn. He's learned new tricks and sounds. And all of the updates from Life OS 1.1 are included too.

 

Best regards,

Innvo Labs

and also got a email from Merlin and they say basically same; This is the New Edition of Pleo with same Life OS 2.0 but with improved skin and skin paint & internal machinery & structure is also improved.

 l think you are wise to buy directly from Merlin as they are a legit company that has done business for quite awhile, just do not have anything to do with that seller, Merlin does provide a 1 year warrantly on all their products as they state that on their home page, and none are cheap, but mostly electronics and they do have a fairly good reputation. I just wish the seller would disappear from ebay as he is totaly confusing or very inept at what he is doing and just sounds"fishy".
              The newer model does sound like a good deal, but like Crewellas said, I would hold out for a RB as the price even for a basic 2009 model that has improved skin and paint and you can update it for free from Pleoworld, is still a little high in my opinion, but the free shipping is a good deal. Just remember those import duties,Crewella could probably tell you how much hers were. If you do get one, Congratulations and be sure to keep us posted on when it arrives. Good luck and thanks for providing the information for everyone.  ;)

Thats very cool and I hope you enjoy your new Pleo.. Looking forward to seeing what he does differently. I'd be interested but I have to say I agree.. I'd wait for a price drop as that is just way too expensive and too close to the current RB price and it as much as I love my Ugobes they are much different. :)

I spoke to Merlin Digital by telephone yesterday and sent an email via ebay to merlinuae.  I can confirm that merlinuae is actually Merlin Digital as the guy at Merlin Digital was able to confirm details about my email! :)  So it's all legit.  Im lining up to purchase, just need to convince myself to spend some more cash! ;)

There was a choice of USA or Non USA with the 2009's, but in the UAE they have UK-style plugs, so no idea what we'll get...

Ah- I remember when this was a huge deal. Merlin is still selling RBs but I think it's just a deal with Innvo.
It seems... interesting that there's a new factory selling Ugobe pleoes. The 'bots are on clearance right now, (after 5 years. o.o) but I don't think the robots are different at all, just a way to resell old units.
