Tips for Buying EarthBound

January 16th, 2011 | Auctions, EarthBound, Merchandise, MOTHER 1+2

It looks like a couple of cool EarthBound items have appeared while I wasn’t looking!

EarthBound Ruler

First is one of those rare EarthBound rulers, being sold on eBay. I wonder how many of these are out there, or if this is one of the ones we’ve seen previously. Until just a little while ago we weren’t even 100% sure these existed, so it’s interesting to see a lot of them surfacing lately.

You can read up more about the EarthBound ruler here and here.

Mach Pizza Air Freshener

Next up is one of the always-tough-to-get Mach Pizza air fresheners, also on eBay. Even better, this one includes the congratulatory note sent to people who entered the contest!

There’s more info and details about the air fresheners here and here!

MOTHER 1+2 Mr. Saturn T-shirt

Lastly is this rare, limited-edition official T-shirt being sold on Yahoo Auctions Japan. The King of Games sold this in Japan in 2003, and apparently it sold out almost instantly.

I don’t seem to have much info on this particular shirt, I’ll have to dig up some details about it at some point. It looks like I wrote briefly about it here, but that’s it.

Anyway, if you’re a collector, check those out! Just don’t sell all your kidneys to get them, that’d hurt.

Great items, steep prices. I’ll get these someday, but that day is not today.

I think the steep prices will prevent me from ever getting any of these. Stuff like rulers and pogs are for the extreme fans. Speaking of, I wonder how easy it would be to make a replica of certain stuff like the ruler? Not that I’m doubting it’s authenticity, but it looks so simplistic…

It seems strange that we only heard about these EarthBound rulers less than a year ago, and since then there’s been tons of news about them. It also gives a new definition to my username. 😛

Ahhhhh I’m super broke otherwise I’d go for that ruler.

Anyways I think that the rulers are coming out of the woodwork because of the ridiculously high prices paid for the first one to show up recently. It’s enough to make people question whether they really need one or not so they end up selling them…at least that’s what I think. It’s kind of like how when the first set of Mother figures landed on YAJ for insane prices there were multiple auctions for full mint and/or unopened keychains when normally there’s only one auction like that every few months.

Holy heck. Those rulers are awesome, but not for me – too rich for my blood.

I’m happy with fan made stuff. Seriously, I have the cart and I’m tracking down the player’s guide. ’tis all.

Seems like people are starting to get burned out on the rulers; there’ve been, what, six of them revealed in the last few months? After a point it stops being so sought after.
