Tips for Buying EarthBound

June 25th, 2009 | EarthBound, MOTHER 3, Videos

This is pretty old by now, but it’s still neat and EarthBound-ish 😛

Apparently there are people who build spider mechs for fun. They’re not EarthBound fans (I don’t think), they’re just crazy. Anyway, check this one out:

Now all we need is someone to figure out how to rip out people’s souls and stick them into robots. That, or how to do genetic engineering to create life-size Mr. Saturns, but I think they’d freak the crap out of me in real life now that I think about it.

That actually kind of does look like Porky’s spider mech thing. Interesting.

That’s awesome!

I’ll get one of those when I get really old and immortal thanks to time travel and Giygas

TheFlint said on Jun. 25, 2009

O_o Wow, cool. Now they just have to build a mechanic tea table and they would become my idols!

Next, Mr. Carpainter will offer them big roles in happy happyism.

Spider mechs: The future of transportation.
Although one may think wheels are more efficeint, walking around on 8 metal legs has that epic intimidation factor. Seriously, this is awesome.

Yet another advancement in nerd history.

PKNuMan said on Jun. 26, 2009

OK I’M SCARED NOW.

Ice Sage said on Jun. 26, 2009

Wow…but that looks REALLY jerky to ride in though. If these things replaced cars, I would never leave the house and never look outside. Imagine tons of these things going 60 mph on the highway… O_O

Sorry. Not for me.

@JamesBond007-Big money! Big prizes!

That looks really clunky to move in, but that still looks so damn cool!
Now for a bed mecha! And a Dungeon Man!

LucidEnigma said on Jun. 26, 2009

Oh Snap!
They mean bussiness.

Chewy said on Jun. 26, 2009

!!!! I had no idea that functional spider mechs were even possible for a hobbyist to build. My mind is blown. And now I feel even deeper twinges of crippling disappointment that Earthbound is not being made into a live action movie. I don’t care what anyone says, I want one.

EmeraldWind said on Jun. 26, 2009

@Ice Sage

Yeah… I’ll second that one…

but I think the spider mechs might make a neat all-terain vehicle… if they made all the legs analog like a real spder…

I Remember Watching The Gadget Show And Seeing This And The Moment I Saw It Move I Thought Of Earthbound.

Aurilliux said on Jun. 26, 2009

Hey, there are people that build those and are Earthbound fans, geez 😛

Briianz said on Jun. 27, 2009

Can someone call Porky and tell him someone stolen his Spider Mech?

Porky Minch said on Jun. 27, 2009

I want to ride on one

Violentos said on Jun. 27, 2009

That is some amazing stuff! I hate spiders though, so it’s especially freaky to me!

gigadragoon89 said on Jun. 28, 2009

I posted this on Starmen.net a few days ago :P. I feel so honored?

Artillery said on Jul. 1, 2009

@Chewy: I wholeheartedly second that. EarthBound film for the WIN

Anyways, looks like Porky has some competition.

It slightly reminds me of the spider ride from LegoLand.

CruxianAzelf said on Jul. 3, 2009

Jeagle101 said on Jul. 18, 2009

PKkuma7 said on Sep. 9, 2010

Matteomax said on Mar. 30, 2011

Hmmm.. Now they can use that for a prop if they make a Mother 3 movie! 😀

gg said on Jun. 28, 2011

They need Giygas, a buisness suit, and they’re ready to go!

Jinxkatty7 said on Jul. 9, 2012

Awww! I want that for Christmas!!! I know I’m in for a world of hurt… Not gonna happen. 🙁
