Tips for Buying EarthBound

January 3rd, 2010 | Weekly Round-Up

Things’ve been a bit busy lately so last week’s weekly roundup had to take a vacation. But now that the holidays are over, it’s time to get back into the swing of things!

So here’s a look at some of the EarthBound stuff from around the Internet from the past week or two:

Community News

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

Merchandise-wise, these past few weeks were very quiet for EarthBound. Also, almost all the EarthBound carts with buy-it-now are currently over $100; they usually average between $70 and $80. I guess there was a run on carts for the holidays or sellers are hoping to cash in on the holiday season with higher prices.

Anyway, here’s some cool stuff that showed up this past week that fans and collectors might want to check out. Remember that you can also see all the EarthBound / MOTHER stuff on eBay all gathered in one handy place here!

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

And stuff on Amazon:

What’s Up With Itoi

  • Nothing too much of interest from Itoi lately, just lots of stuff about time flying and the new year. Looking back at last year, he seems to only talks about anything MOTHER-related only once or twice a year.

Final Thought

Mitch sent me this many months ago, now’s a good time to use it I think 😛

It’s so weird being back to the January theme again. A blast from the past. 🙂

Uhhh…. You mean Weekly Round Up #50 right Mato? But anyways, I liked the old flukes and find the differences thing better than just randomly submitted artwork. But, gee… All of the good EB merch is GONE for good,if a poster ever comes up, expect me to be the one to take it home, thank you very much! 😀

@Mato, but there wasn’t a spectacular 50th week Weekly round-up, if you were busy then I totally understand, the fan-art explains it all….

I blew all my Christmas gift money on Mother merchandise!

And it was totally worth it!

@pidgezero_one: I’m pretty sure you’ll regret it someday. 😐

I know I would.

There’s nothing regrettable about owning a jumbo Mr. Saturn!
