Shigesato Itoi, Giygas, and Boobies
November 8th, 2009 | Weekly Round-Up
My busy-ness has been escalating lately, so I’ve been skipping the weekly roundups lately. I think they may turn into something more like “occasional roundsup”. I’m also gonna change them up a little bit, they’ll be more about stuff that happens off-site. I’m still tinkering with the format, so don’t mind the dust!
- Fan Fiction Friday: The Cast of Earthbound in “Deathbound” (not for the weak of heart)
- You’re bound to look sharp in these Earthbound duds
- Is Earthbound really worth it?
- Hey! Listen! Bound Together
- I Clothe Gamers
- Put the Ness in Awesomeness
- Earthbound tiems
- I AM A FROG
- Mother 3 Spieletagebuch Teil 1
- Rev Rant: gaaaaaaaaaaaaay
- Mother 3 – Negative Man custom figures
- MOTHER 4 Fangame @ Nintendo Community Fangame Convention
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!
Cool Auctions & Merchandise
A lot of stuff’s showed up the past few weeks that I’ve slacked off. The sidebar updates throughout the day with the newest auctions of the day, so if you like keeping tabs on the latest EarthBound swag, keep your eyes peeled there. I also sometimes post good deals on the site’s Twitter account, for example a few days ago an EarthBound Player’s Guide was only $32.
Anyway, here’s some cool stuff fans and collectors might want to check out. You can also see all the EarthBound / MOTHER stuff on eBay all gathered in one handy place here!
- EarthBound Rare RPG + Soundtrack! Super Nintendo SNES
- Game Boy Micro Mother 3 Limited Edition DELUXE BOX RARE
- MOTHER 2 EARTHBOUND GUIDE ART BOOK
- EarthBound SNES Super Nintendo game box guide COMPLETE
- Earthbound??? Mother 2??? I’m guessing it’s Mother 2.
- 1995 Earthbound Advertisement w/ COUPON super nintendo
- Famicom 4koma Manga Book 2 Mother Castlevania Zelda – pretty rare, snag it if you’re a collector!
- Earthbound SNES Game and Strategy Guide
A lot of neat-looking fan-made shirts also showed up recently, you can see them at the bottom of the page here.
And here’s some cool stuff on Yahoo! Auctions Japan:
- Booklet from Nintendo Earth World w/ MOTHER 2 advertisement/preview in it
- Mr. Saturn plushies – buy-it-now price is around $45, not bad at all
- Fan-made Mr. Saturn mini-towel
- Some other Mr. Saturn fan-made thing
And stuff on Amazon:
- EarthBound Player’s Guide for $24.99! – it’s not in top quality of course, but that’s still mighty cheap!
What’s Up With Itoi
- A few weeks ago Itoi flew over to Italy to oversee some stuff and see how some of his upcoming merchandise is made I think. He didn’t really get to see the country, he was mostly either in his hotel room or at the factory. He liked it a lot though and he learned a lot he said.
- He also mentioned that this year he’s watched so much baseball that he’s not willing to tell anyone how much time he’s spent on it. He says that he’s going to do all kinds of stuff with his newfound extra time like walk the dog more/for longer periods of time and stuff. I guess the baseball season is over there or something now.
What’s wrong with this picture?
