Slime TV’s MOTHER 3 Review
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 »
Stephen Georg, who’s been running a popular vlog for some years now, recently posted a video showcasing a bunch of old MOTHER merchandise and old Starmen.Net stuff that fans might find interesting: Actually, you might know him better as xfis if you’re an old fan – he played Ness in Fobbies are Borange and also made these classic EarthBound videos. If you haven’t seen his s...Read More »
A while back a reader by the name of Travis e-mailed me about how EarthBound had deeply touched him and how it connected with his religious beliefs in a profound way. I asked if he’d want to write about it, since, regardless of your religious background (or lack thereof), it’s a pretty big deal when ANYTHING can move someone on such a deep level. So the fact that a Japanese video game...Read More »
Very recently a pre-release version of EarthBound hit eBay – you can check it out here. Here are some excerpts from the description: This is a pre-production prototype of Earthbound for the SNES. There are very, very few of these known, and one hasn’t sold publicly on Ebay in recent history (personally, I’ve never seen one listed). When it comes to Earthbound collectibles, this...Read More »
The EarthBound Anthology books were made back in like 2007 or so in super-limited quantities, so when one appeared yesterday on eBay a bunch of people took notice. What’s even stranger is the story behind this particular one: I found this book at a thrift store and got it because Iliked the artwork, but found out it was a sought after book. (More info and pics here) I’m dying to know ...Read More »
I’m not too much of an expert on Japanese MOTHER series guides, so it was a surprise when I learned one sold on Yahoo Auctions Japan a few months ago for 20,000 yen – or about $210! Apparently it’s a little rarer than the other guides, which is something I never really realized until now. It looks like this particular guide had 31 bidders, so at least a few people were fighting ...Read More »
Official EarthBound posters are notoriously rare and usually fetch really high prices on eBay. After a year or two of not seeing one, a poster popped up on eBay the other day for $2499. Man, you’d have to beat up like 800 Runaway Dogs to afford that ...Read More »
Good ol’ Fangamer made some EarthBound-related videos recently, so I thought I’d share them. First up is a video for their Awesomeness combo, which features all the stuff you’ll need to save the world: Next is a video for their Franklin pin and Courage badge: I see the folks from Fangamer on a regular basis (they’re just a few miles from where I live), so if you do order ...Read More »
