MOTHER 2 Commercials Recreated
February 7th, 2010 | Weekly Round-Up
This past week was weird, it was like “EarthBound Collectors Week” or something. The EarthBound display card for $305, LucasTizma and the $3000 addition to his collection, and the new mini Mr. Saturn plushes. I don’t have much of a collection, but I really like keeping up with this stuff and seeing other people’s collections.
Anyway, here’s what other EarthBound-related stuff has happened this past week throughout the information super-tubeway.
- MOTHER 3 For Haiti – happening later this week
- “Sorry, I’m Dead”: 30 Most Memorable Video Game Quotes
- Shigesato Itoi’s No. 1 Bass Fishing
- MOTHER 4?
- 8 Melodies
- Sound Current: ‘Fan-Fueled Retro Game Revival – Tokyo Big Sight’s Comic Market 77’
My face melted, 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!
Cool Auctions & Merchandise
The big EarthBound merch news this past week was the EarthBound display card that sold for $305 and the new mini Mr. Saturns that hit Japanese arcades. But here’s some other interesting stuff that showed up this week in case you missed it.
Of course, you can also see all the EarthBound / MOTHER stuff on eBay all gathered in one handy place here!
- EarthBound Display Card! – here’s another one, probably won’t be as expensive
- New mini Mr. Saturn plushes for $50! – potential!
- EarthBound cartridge for $85 – $85 or less is where I personally draw the line for carts
- EarthBound + Strategy Guide
- MOTHER 2 / EarthBound comic: Ness’s Great Adventure – drawn by the game’s character designer and tells the full story of the game, someone was selling this for $165 used just the other day so this is a pretty decent price!
- MOTHER 2 cartridge for only $9.99!
- EarthBound Player’s Guide – strangely, these have been getting rarer and rarer this past month or two
- EarthBound, complete with game, guide, and box
- Shigesato Itoi’s No. 1 Bass Fishing (Super Famicom) complete, for only $5
And here’s some cool stuff on Yahoo! Auctions Japan:
And stuff on Amazon:
- EarthBound is at $89.99 this week on Amazon
- MOTHER 1 is available, for $25 😯
- EarthBound Player’s Guide… for $200?! Ouch ouch
What’s Up With Itoi
- Nothing too much of interest this week. For some reason it seemed like it was “unusual headwear week” though.
The Where’s Ness stuff is running low, so this may be one of the last ones unless readers send some more in. This week’s looks pretty interesting, see what you can find!
