Escargo Express in a Dungeon

When EarthBound was released it came in a jumbo-sized box because it also contained the big player’s guide. But there were actually regular-size boxes for EarthBound made that were used as in-store displays! jeet was nice enough to let me have some scans of the box, which you can see here:
These actually tend to go for a lot on eBay, in fact there’s one on there right now with a buy-it-now for like $125. I really wouldn’t say it’s worth THAT much though 😯
byuu (of bsnes fame) has been working on an interesting Super NES preservation project here, and during it he sent me some very high-quality scans of this display box. Each one is 40 MB in size and needs a lot of image manipulation prowess before it’s in a good enough state for me to give out. So if anyone here is good at cleaning up high quality scans of box art, send me an e-mail. The extent of my skills is: resize, then sharpen.
And, while I’m here, if you’re into EarthBound / MOTHER merchandise, this shameless plug might interest you, if you haven’t checked it out already!
