Tips for Buying EarthBound

April 15th, 2009 | EarthBound, Images, Videos

Official Mr. Saturn keychains are hard to come by and can be kind of pricy, as you can see here:

So, a Japanese fan decided to make some homemade Mr. Saturn keychains instead of shelling out a ton of money for just one keychain/strap. The end results are pretty cool. Here’s a video of them being made:

Sorry, I don’t have time to subtitle the video or translate it, plus I don’t know much about this kind of stuff. But maybe it’ll inspire people to try their hand at homemade stuff too 😀

First!

That’s nifty, and a good money saving idea too.

I wouldn’t be surprised if more stuff like this starts cropping up with the economic situation going on.

So _that_ is the weird thing I saw on Yahoo! Japan Auctions months ago. Interesting.

Such care and detail…it was spectacular!

I want one.

That’s amazing!

Maybe someone here can translate the instructions?
That would be extremely helpful for those that want to make their own!

I really lucked out a while ago, managed to buy the Mother 3+ soundtrack with the Saturn strap on eBay UK for just £10 – that’s about $15.

That’s kind of.. awesome. 😀

My only complaint would be that they look slightly unhappy, but I’m just being picky. I still want one!

honeymustard: does that mean ebay UK has different things than the main ebay?

Xi said on Apr. 16, 2009

Anonymous: Yes. The easiest indicator to go by is the host url. If it is ebay.com instead of ebay.co.uk or ebay.co.jp, they have different products. People from one region are most likely going to buy products from that region, both due to regional interest and shipping costs. A lot of people from other places, however, still post items on the “main” ebay, as it arguably has more members and it is not too difficult assuming they can grasp basic english.

Craigslist took this idea of regional interest further, to where you get different results based on which city you are in!

This is a really cool tutorial! I’ve made some Mr. Saturn (and tenda) pencil toppers out of clay like this, hoping that somebody at school would recognize them.

Simply awesome. DIY Mr. Saturn keychains and straps.

*sigh* gotta make one.

XD Hehehehe! I understood what they were doing. Fimo is good stuff for that. Although you can just buy different colours, so you don’t need white. There’s also something softer than Fimo out there. I do like knowing how long it takes in the nukerowave though, and the varnish had never occurred to me for some reason (although I’ll be buying up some proper stuff soon anyway to properly decorate the SP).

I’ll probably make a few of these now. Maybe not Mr.Saturn, but I’m sure I could make a few enemies. 😉 When I have time, of course. :O

I wonder what shape my keyblade would take if I attatched one of those to it?

Mr. Nosy said on Apr. 17, 2009

That inspired me to make a Mr. Saturn plushie (if I could!)!

Gasman said on May. 23, 2009
