Tips for Buying EarthBound

February 6th, 2010 | Auctions, Merchandise, MOTHER 3

Those mini-Mr. Saturn plushies hit Japanese arcades yesterday and they’re already on eBay now! Someone is selling a bunch of them here for $50 each.

I’m not sure how often these will show up on eBay, so this is probably a good chance to snag one before they get especially rare as time goes on. Even the normal-sized Mr. Saturn plushes are pretty hard to come by nowadays.

EDIT: These are suddenly all over Yahoo Auctions Japan now. Here’s a pic from one of them!

That’s good eatin’!

I honestly feel like $50 is just someone trying to set the bar ridiculously high. I mean, that’s the typical starting price for the full-size plushes… and these are just small cell straps. If they don’t wind up selling for the $50 he’s asking, then maybe the prices will get lower. 😐

I do think it is over priced but i am still getting it.

also what is that thing in the picture is it a cell phone

Mato said on Feb. 6, 2010

Yeah, one recommended use for these plushes is as a cell phone strap/charm. The plushes don’t come with cell phones of course.

nevermind, the picture leads to it fine

Oh, wow. I did not realize they were that tiny. I’m definitely going to skip this auction. As much as I’d like one or two of these little guys, there’s absolutely no point in paying more than I did for the medium-sized plushies plus crazy Japan shipping.

I think that this is a pretty good deal. Now I’m gonna try and snag one if my dad will let me >_>

They’re so expensively cute <3

I just bought one 🙂

They’re not too expensive on Yahoo Japan. Just bought a bunch of em for 800 yen each.

I’m betting some will go as low as 500 yen on Yahoo.

Chrissii said on Feb. 6, 2010

@neonix I would love to buy one from you if you’re buying in bulk T.T You have my email, I think, if you would like to send me a price? <_<

neonix said on Feb. 6, 2010

^Sure, I’ll email you when they get into the US lol, could be a month or so from now though. =P

Chrissii said on Feb. 6, 2010

Haha that’s fine with me! xD

Darien said on Feb. 6, 2010

Yeah, if anybody who’s buying a bunch of these things from Japan is keen to resell, I might be interested in picking one up myself, if the price is right.

Clearly someone else picked up on my Saturns at Starbucks thing (I did ages ago now). I was first confound it!!

Difegue said on Feb. 9, 2010

Holy crap, 500 yen? Man if you’re reselling those I’ll definetely pick one up when I’ll have the cash, keep one in stock for me, I’ll buy it
