Tips for Buying EarthBound

August 31st, 2010 | EarthBound, Images, Merchandise

The new MOTHER figures have started to come out, and coming soon will be the MOTHER 2 ones. Banpresto recently posted a press release thing that includes a pic of some of the as-of-yet-unreleased figures:

You can grab a copy of the press release PDF here. It’s in Japanese and not especially interesting, but check it out if you’re a download maniac like me 😛

I would kill for that Ness Figure. Maybe even King. Are these on Auctions yet? How much are they going for?

Poe said on Aug. 31, 2010

These new mini figures will be released next month, BreadMaster.

Axl-fox said on Aug. 31, 2010

I dont know why but, Ness looks more cute in this figurine than his clay model.

Do want ;_;

Mato said on Aug. 31, 2010

That IS how his clay figures looks – they modified it (and a few others) to make him look less kiddie for EarthBound.

Penguiness said on Aug. 31, 2010

Tracy is smaller than King!

MG said on Aug. 31, 2010

I want the Ness one, like everyone else.

Earthbounder said on Aug. 31, 2010

I would love to get my hands on these earthbound figures

The Commander said on Aug. 31, 2010

Baw~ If I ever get these, Remind me to put them by my Phone in-case Ness’ dad calls

Ice Sage said on Aug. 31, 2010

Tracy is rather small. Like really, really small. I didn’t realize that her clay model was that tiny.

So how much more do you think the M2 figurines will go for than the M1 ones (because I’m pretty sure they’ll cost more in auctions)?

KingDarian said on Aug. 31, 2010

These things look amazing. Who knew Tracy was so petite. I can’t wait to catch ’em all.

LakituAl said on Aug. 31, 2010

I’d like the Tracy figurine, but I’m afraid I might accidentally inhale it and choke to death. Earthbound overdose, that would be quite a way to go…

Kodremus said on Aug. 31, 2010

They might end up costing more than the Mother figures, but I assume there’s a higher possibility of them appearing on eBay. The Ness figure will be in all of the series of figures though, so the price might go down over time.

TheBatFax said on Aug. 31, 2010

I think the only mini-figures I’m really looking forward to are the Runaway Five and Venus.

Catherine said on Aug. 31, 2010

I really want King! D:

DragonKazooie89 said on Aug. 31, 2010

I REALLY want these. Too bad I’ll probably never be able to get them….

Shyamalan said on Aug. 31, 2010

Tracy looks like she could ride on King. Who would win in a race, Tracy on King or Lucas on Boney?

neonix said on Aug. 31, 2010

Boney and Lucas. King is a lazy mutt. 😛

Hunter said on Aug. 31, 2010

Tracy’s clay model is cuter than the sprite itself. 🙂

chaobreeder20 said on Aug. 31, 2010

I want the ness one real bad,if they ever release lucas or Masked man claus id get those instead.=)

KingDarian said on Aug. 31, 2010

Hey, why didn’t you mention that the pdf also shows a preview of the Mr. Saturn?

Earthbounder said on Sep. 1, 2010

I wanna see a Photoman figure

JoeShmoe said on Sep. 1, 2010

Oho, very nice.

Crav said on Sep. 2, 2010

WANT!
I rarely go after stuff like this for anything, but…
WANT!

Nini-ni said on Sep. 2, 2010

…. ; A ;

MechaMutoh said on Sep. 2, 2010

I wonder if there is a Mr. Saturn figurine.

KingDarian said on Sep. 2, 2010

These are mine. 😀

The price is a bit steep(Roughly 2100yen per figurine), but it’s probably cheaper than winning individual auctions from different sellers and paying individual shipping + per auction fee from my bidder. Anyone else bite yet?

In case anyone’s wondering, there actually are two different versions of Ninten. If you look closely at the back of the box, you’ll see that each is pictured with his associated set of three.

UPDATE: Page is up for MOTHER 2 mini set 1 😀

:O

also: Deluxe 18cm Mr. Saturn – looks squishy

tapioca said on Sep. 2, 2010

what’s a fubi-figure?

KingDarian said on Sep. 2, 2010

Google Translate indicates that the Mr. Saturn is made out of a soft vinyl, if that’s what you’re asking.

Mato said on Sep. 2, 2010

I believe it’s a PVC figure:

neonix said on Sep. 3, 2010

I already bit, KD, and I spent more than you did (and I only got one Ninten). :< 2100 each is a really good deal all in one auction.

KingDarian said on Sep. 3, 2010

There are even better deals out there, though. I’m seeing a lot of 3pc sets for under 6000 each and 6pc sets in the 12000 range.

Nicer still, someone is selling a complete set of the Coca Cola keychains from MOTHER 1+2’s release 😮

blahblah said on Sep. 3, 2010

If I had to drink a gallon of toilet water to get all those figures on the picture. I would NOT do it. But I MUST get Ness….and King……Lucas would be nice……but the MASKED MAN!!!! THAT WOULD BE BEAST!!!!

Dlakii said on Sep. 4, 2010

Initially I wasn’t too interested in the mini figures, in favour of the larger ones. Then I actually took the time to read about the minis and realised that arguably they’re more reasonably-sized in terms of ability to display when one doesn’t have much room to do so, like me. That’s also not to mention their greater character coverage, so yeah – I think the minis are, to me at least, more sheer DO WANT than the large ones.

Not that it’ll do much good either way – these certainly won’t come cheap especially for shipment to Australia, I’d imagine, and I’ll have barely any money left over for these to begin with once Nintendo and LEGO are finished raping my budget (which won’t be for a while, methinks). 😛

In conclusion, HNNNNNNNNNG.

PokemonMasato said on Sep. 4, 2010

I want Ness’ Dad as a figure.. Or Just Ness and King would be fine.

Onion said on Sep. 5, 2010

Anyone have a link to pictures of all the Japanese clay models? It seems that’s what the figures are all going to end up looking like anyways.

KingDarian said on Sep. 5, 2010

Here you go. It’s not all of them, but most that can be found in the official guides are there.

Onion said on Sep. 6, 2010

Awesome. Thanks KD!

KingDarian said on Sep. 6, 2010

I got my invoice. After fees, shipping in Japan, and shipping overseas, I ended paying about $40 each. Ah, but these are so worth it.

…I hope the mini figures are a lot cheaper. 😛

Leirin said on Sep. 7, 2010

Tracy please 🙂 They’re beautiful!

Tennie said on Sep. 8, 2010

I wonder if official Mother 3 clay figures will make a surprise announcement?

The Commander said on Sep. 8, 2010

DJ Rowland said on Oct. 8, 2010

Does anyone think they might come out with Mother 3 ones? I sure hope they do!

Matteomax said on May. 22, 2011

I really think they should put them in American crane machines,the arcades would make millions!! (Well, maybe not millions, but A LOT..) 😀

Matteomax said on May. 22, 2011

Ness, Paula, Jeff, Poo, Mom, Tracy, King, Pokey, Picky, Lucky, Nice, Venus, Dr, Andonuts, Mr. Saturn (four kinds), Belch, DX Starman , Starman jr., and normal Starman..
