EB0 vs. MOTHER 1 Magicant Caves
I recently stumbled upon this video with Pat the NES Punk in it that touches on a weird story about eBay and a seller with 30 suspicious EarthBound cartridges. If you haven’t heard of this before, here’s the video (strong language warning, BTW): Somehow this story sounds familiar but it’s a fuzzy, hazy memory to me. If anyone has more details, lemme know in the comments! (Knowin...Read More »
Every once in a while I like to share EarthBound stuff that Fangamer has, and here are a few EarthBound-themed shirts that might interest you! Devastation This shirt is designed by Nina Matsumoto, who’s done so many bazillion awesome things that I’m not even sure where to start listing them from! Besides stuff like her manga work, her Simpsons work, and her Last Airbender work, you mi...Read More »
Charles M. is selling his rare Mach Pizza air freshener on eBay right now – and it also comes with all the little extras that are even MORE rare, like the “correct answer” card and the original envelope that it all came in! I actually haven’t seen many of these air fresheners for sale lately, so if you’ve been on the hunt for one this is your chance! ...Read More »
A reader named Eric sent me this the other day: Yo, great site man. I’m active duty military stationed up in northern Japan. Took some vacation during this past week and spent a few days down south in Tokyo (31DEC-2JAN). Saw you post about the new Mother 2 straps being released so I figured I’d keep my eyes peeled for them. While in Akihabara, I saw the straps at two different loca...Read More »
A week or two ago I posted about a new set of MOTHER 2 merchandise that was planned to be released in Japan – some MOTHER 2 figure straps. Well, they’ve finally been unleashed to the public, and here’s some info and pics! First up is a picture and an e-mail from Japanese super-collector Koala! As you can see, these are the kinds of collectibles you get from a machine – an...Read More »
Yesterday I received an e-mail from a Japanese reader – which, looking back, is the first all-Japanese e-mail I’ve gotten at this site! Anyway, the e-mail’s from a fan named Koala – here’s a simple translation: You mentioned that it’s okay to e-mail you in Japanese, so I hope you don’t mind that I do. Hello, I’m Koala, a MOTHER (EarthBound) merchandi...Read More »
Adam sent me an e-mail over the weekend about EarthBound and GameStop stores: Hi! I’ve been following the Earthbound Bash, and it was quite a story. What an inspiration! Anyhow, today I was in a Gamestop in Houston, Texas when my wife pointed out that they were selling Earthbound VC downloads (in addition to other classic titles). I snapped a few pictures for you. I’m not really sure ...Read More »
pk_stan e-mailed me this morning about a set of new, official MOTHER 2 merchandise – new figure keychain straps! Here’s a look at the flier: These will be available from those capsule toy machine things, and each capsule toy is 200 yen. They supposedly become available starting this month, and may already be available in some places in Japan, but I don’t have any confirmation on...Read More »
If you’re a fan of Fangamer’s EarthBound-themed stuff, you’ll be happy to know they just released a new shirt by Omocat called “Chosen Four“: It looks like it comes with a pin/button of a familiar universal destroyer! You might remember Omocat from other really cool stuff like the Overcoming Shyness book. I actually don’t know if that’s available anymor...Read More »
Every month I update the average price of EarthBound stuff on buyearthbound.com to help fans get the best possible deal and avoid paying too much. Although I didn’t update last month because I’m a big dummyhead. It’s been a while since EarthBound was released on the Wii U, so I suspected that physical copies would’ve gone down further in price. And yep, it pretty much did! ...Read More »
