Tips for Buying EarthBound

October 14th, 2012 | Auctions, EarthBound

In a few weeks Poe and I are gonna be moving across the country (partly to help out these guys and partly to avoid being eaten by retired old people), so we’ve been throwing away stuff we don’t need and eBaying some of the cooler stuff to help pay for the move. So this week and next week I’ll be posting some of our EarthBound/MOTHER-related stuff on here for anyone who’s interested.

First off today is our last English EarthBound Anthology – this is a complete set with 2 discs in the back. I’m not sure what’s on them, I’ve never looked at them. Very few EB Anthologies were made, but if you’ve never heard of it before you can see an online version here.

We Starmen.Net guys actually got the main text part of the EB Anthology professionally translated into Japanese way back when. Then we printed a few copies and sent them to Itoi, Iwata, Miyamoto, and a few other people. I actually have one last copy that I’ll probably put on eBay soon. I’m hoping I still have some of the bonus music CDs or video DVDs we included in our PK Siege Japan stuff. I think I might’ve sent them all out or thrown them away at some point though. Hopefully not.

Anyway, there’s some more interesting stuff to come soon!

Cool! I didn’t know about Starmen.net back in 2008, so I didn’t know about this PK Siege thing and I’ve been reading all about it and I got curious, did you guys ever get any note or any confirmation that Itoi got the package besides those photos of the box in his desk?

I see one on eBay already!

Raffa: I actually can’t remember anymore. I guess not, since I’d probably remember something of that magnitude 😛 But I think the package is probably why he’s commented on the “Starman Club” in recent years.

So does that mean you’ll be even busier than usual, Mato?
Wow, do you have a lot on your plate!

I’ll give you two dollars for the whole lot.

The first page after the Table of Contents states (in all caps), “THIS BOOK IS NOT FOR SALE OR RESALE”. Does the book warning prevent the sale or resale of the book?

If it matters, I did get Reid’s permission a while back. I think they were worried that people would try to make copies and sell them on Amazon or elsewhere.

Yup, that notice is mostly there so people wouldn’t try to print/sell their own copies. The ‘resale’ thing is from when we first printed them and didn’t want the recipients to immediately throw them on eBay (since we sent a *lot* of them out blindly to media companies), but half a decade later we can definitely appreciate their value to the community, so we don’t mind anymore.
