Tips for Buying EarthBound

August 12th, 2009 | EarthBound, Images

A week or more ago, during one of the EarthBound Funktastic Gameplay things, Meeellla showed off a Ness figure she was working on. A few days later she painted it and quietly posted it on her flickr account, but apparently she has many fans because the figure has just hit a few gaming news sites. So I figure I might a well post about it too 😛

You can see the pics of it here. As you may recall, she also made all the clay models for the MOTHER 3 Handbook.

I don’t know what’s going to be done with the Ness figure, my guess is that it’ll join the other models in that cabinet of awesome, or maybe as a prize for something. I really have no idea, but it definitely looks great!

Also, here is an interview with her about stuff from a few months ago: Part 1, Part 2.

Man, compare that to the Ness model she made many years ago:

Both are great, but you can see how much she has improved.

I didn’t really like the Mother 3 handbook clay models so much, but this one is pretty awesome! I’m impressed.

It’s incredible.

That is a very well-made piece of art…I’d say that rivals what got into the official guide.

spaz said on Aug. 12, 2009

i’d pay 50 bucks for that.

Wow, what a truly talented person!

Very nice. BOING!

Amazing stuff. Hopefully Meeellla makes a mold out of some of these figures and makes at least 10 or so. I would love a Ness… err I mean… a “Regular Kid With Striped Shirt” figure! Ahem…

Is Meeellla a professional?

Gurp said on Aug. 13, 2009

Personally looks a little too cutesy for a stereotypical 13 year old American, but it’s a nice style.

Otter Scott said on Aug. 20, 2009

Pretty Awesome. How long did it take to make this, I wonder.

Rei said on Aug. 21, 2009

So how about a picture of Meeellla’s entire collection of Mother sculpts? It would make for a helluva good desktop background….

I would easily pay $200+ for this. I’m sure there are people out there who would pay more. She should do a short run of each of her figurines, put them to auction, and then send the money to Tomato and Jeff so that they can do a full translation/rom hack of Mother 1+2. Srsly.

why is he wearing chuck taylor all stars without stars

I mean, this is so awesome.

neonix said on Jan. 29, 2010

^Probably for two reasons. 1) the obvious difficulty and 2) she probably didn’t want any logos on the figure.

No, the original model was wearing chuck taylors without stars, too.

(here’s a picture:

That I could bet is the actual reason.

Testing, let’s see if BBCode works here.
