Everyone’s favorite animatronic dinosaur is now one step closer to invading our shores. Pleo’s manufacturer UGOBE is taking pre-orders for the dinosaur and the price isn’t cheap. After earlier reports that Pleo would cost somewhere between $250 and $300, UGOBE has pulled a Nintendo and decided to charge $350 for the lil’ guy. Talk about highway robbery.
Don’t get too excited though. Yes, UGOBE and partners are taking pre-orders, but Pleo isn’t shipping until October. In the mean time, you could always hit eBay for a used Sony AIBO. I had one for a while and although it was a surreal experience, that dog kicked more ass than any furry animal ever did. Hopefully Pleo will compare on some levels.
