Huck Gee is the first artist to put his design on an 8″ Leo’z and pays tribute to the Peugeot 2008 engaged on the Paris-Dakar 2016 using the same treatment he already used on Leo’z series 1 which was a tribute to the Peugeot 205 Rally.

“Leo is a very stylished lion created by Christophe Pialat, Peugeot Design Lab designer. He has totally reshaped the famous lion from Peugeot pushing forward the new codes of the brand. The result is a design really contemporary and original.
Series 2 is made of 12 designs to collect. The series brings together 6 designers from Peugeot Design Lab – 2Bom, Yang Cai, Vadim Gilca, GKO, Michael Jaffrain, Cyrielle Lecher and 6 artists well known from the designer toy scene – Junko Mizuno (JAP), Otto Björnik (PHI), JPK design (UK), Kronk (ZAF), Fakir (FR) et NIARK 1 (FR).
