Tips for Buying EarthBound

March 27th, 2009 | EarthBound, Merchandise

Various Japanese blogs and message boards are reporting that the first round of Giant Mr. Saturn plushies have been shipped and are arriving now. Also, it appears that the plushes are shipped inside the Escargot Express boxes, which are themselves inside a slightly larger shipping box. That was nice of them.

In fact, it looks like some people bought them just to turn around and sell them for a pretty high markup. Starting bids on some are at 20,000 yen, when they originally sold for only 12,000 yen. I guess they didn’t realize that there’d be a second round and that anybody who ordered them then would get one, making them a little less limited.

But anyway, if by some super-lucky chance you won one in the first round, you’ll probably be seeing your plush sometime soon. Though it may take a little longer to get to you if you used a middleman service, of course 😉

I dunno what I do if I had a giant Mr.Saturn plushie….I’d rather one of the smaller ones that they were giving out for a prize in the Funky monkey dance contest. BTW any plans for any Pk tube’n?

I won’t be satisfied unless my Escargo Express package is delivered by a mustachioed pizza deliver man in a top hat!

I`m curious to see if there is any response to the letters some of us sent. I doubt it, but it would be nifty.

Dang it. I had a Japanese friend who got in the first-round lottery but I forgot to pester them in time to get an order in for the second run. That looks awesome.
