Cool Auctions & Merchandise
Here are a couple things that showed up on eBay this week that are worth checking out. You can also see all the EarthBound and MOTHER stuff currently on eBay here. And if you’re into RSS feeds, check out this one, it will keep you somewhat up-to-date with EarthBound merch as it shows up on eBay.
Official MOTHER 1+2 keychains
- MOTHER 3 Deluxe Box AND MOTHER 1+2! – good deal, good combo!
- Rare MOTHER 2 4-koma Manga – good for collectors
- Mr. Saturn plush for a decent price for once!
- EarthBound 1991ed. – ???? what does that even mean?
- EARTHBOUND SNES VIDEO GAME AND STRATEGY GUIDE – very good combo deal

And here’s some cool stuff on Yahoo! Auctions Japan:

- Super rare MOTHER 2 store poster!
- Handbook from Nintendo Super Famicom Earthworld 1994 w/ MOTHER 2 ad!
- Set of MOTHER 1+2 strategy guides, pretty cool
- MOTHER 1+2 and a cool MOTHER 1 guide
- It’s Mr. Saturn city here
And stuff on Amazon:
- This week EarthBound is $80 on Amazon. It’s kind of neat to see the lowest price fluctuate, it’s almost like a mini stock market. Alas, there are no strategy guides for sale this week 🙁
- Youtube Tuesday – Humoresque of a Little Dog – I think it’s the same video we saw a while ago, but it’s definitely worth another listen/watch 😀
- 4cr Retro – EarthBound (SNES)
- Press The Buttons: EarthBound Player’s Guide Revisited
- La Guía Oficial de EarthBound, en PDF (therror)
- Las traducciones de juegos al castellano mas esperadas (2ª parte)
- So. I am sick. Possibly from drinking something suspicious and not realising it until after I’d already drunk it.
- Half-Masked: 189- Hehe Butts.
I’m a potato so I can’t possibly keep up with every single thing that happens in the EarthBound community, so if you’ve done something cool or if you know of something cool that belongs here, let me know!
What’s Up With Itoi
- This week Itoi talked more about Beatles stuff and said that he might want to do some Beatles-related content on his site at some point. He even asked for suggestions from his readers.
- He also talked about how he’s witnessed electronics and appliances evolve, but there’s one thing he’s been looking forward to: the day that home appliances won’t need power cords anymore.
Well, that’s all for this week. What next week hold is anyone’s guess. Now I must return to my home planet.
