    My thoughts exactly. He had a concept and he followed through all the way. Amazing!

    The figure itself has soft vinyl, a harder clear vinyl for the skull cap, clear plastic tubing, crystals inserts, printed cardboard insert and sticker. The box is full of graphics and extra cuts for folding. And I'd dare say the packaging or rather printing itself takes up 30% of the cost.

    Love the green Görtz! I was hoping for a very different peppy.But oh well! Still nice! Also was hoping for a different doctor.

    Yep, was thinking the same. That green is very nice though.

    That Görz is just unbelievable. Totally amazing.

    Nobody never got mad at nobody for sending them a PM with info on where/when/how to keep track of these releases. Though I absolutely understand if those same nobodies never did because there were already enough hooks in the water.

    Still: incredible toy with incredible details. Awesome.

    the green gorz sure looks good. kind of regretting not going harder for the 1st blue when they were available as this series is developing very nicely. i wonder why the peppies are all painted in similar colour palette?
    i hope there will be other versions/offerings beside these two.

    Really liking the new Gorz :shock: And I'm sure, had I scored either of the previous Pepy releases, I'd be more eager for a departure color wise but I'm stoked on this new Pepy... hope I can land one this go round!

    Anyone here knows what King Kinema is? Saw it on Pepy's package.

    I will take a wild guess but could be completely wrong. The copyright on the Pepy packages are to King Kinema. So maybe King Kinema is the artist name or design studio that created Pepy for Ilu Ilu to produce?

    Yeah, I thought of that for a second. But then I remembered the blank 'books' with pepy on the cover and thought that Ilu Ilu had just created them and the character as a fake background for the toy. But yeah, may be it's an older character and belongs to KK.

    Piece of vintage goodness right there! I can see the resemblance in the Gorz - wonder if it was the inspiration???

    Wow! Wow I say!

    I really like the minty fresh colors on Pepi. That scheme is 'the one.'

    That robo hand is the shiz, and the colour is beau. I wanted to Chris, I really did. You did such a great job for these. Alas I simply could not.

    I noticed it earlier today, and animator also mentioned it to me, but did anyone notice the variation in this Pepy's claw hand?

    And how is this little guy still available (as of this posting at least) - where is the Pepy love folks???
