Tips for Buying EarthBound

February 24th, 2015 | MOTHER 3

PiggyColonel recently created a Porky-themed LEGO set and posted it on the official LEGO site for fans to vote on:

I have some news relating to MOTHER 3 fan stuff…Sorta. Waaaaay back in the day of almost 2 years ago, I posted some stuff about MOTHER 3 LEGO creations. Almost 2 years later, I finally finished the LEGO version of Porky. Now that this is done, I have an idea that I’d like to share with you – there is an official LEGO website called LEGO Ideas; this website allows people to upload things they build, and have people vote on them. If the creation gets 10,000 votes, the creation goes into a review process for a while (there are 3 review dates each year). If the creation passes the review process, the creation is made into an official LEGO set!

So basically, I was thinking that with the help of EBC and Starmen.net, we could all help to make Porky into his own MOTHER 3 LEGO set! I haven’t actually posted Porky yet, mainly because I wanted to wait to see if you would be able to help – just simply posting it on EBC and on Starmen.net would certainly be very helpful. I know that 10,000 people seems like kind of a lot, so do you think there are any other EarthBound/MOTHER sites that could be used to spread the word? Even if we don’t hit the 10,000, there is a decent chance that it will at least show up on the front page, and more people will get to know about MOTHER.

Of course, this is probably all asking a bit much, so if you can’t help out, that’s fine anyway. Hopefully, no matter what, something good will come out of this. (Whether it be more EB fans or MOTHER 3 finally being rereleased, or this becoming official MOTHER Merch) Also, if this got 10,000 votes and went into the review stage, Nintendo would pretty much have to notice the fan’s love for MOTHER 3, due to how LEGO probably doesn’t want to be sued for copyright. Either way, I would be very glad if you can help out. Thank you.

If you’d like to support this LEGO set or if you’d just like to see more pics of it, head over here!

11 Comments to Vote for the Porky LEGO Set

As cool as this lego creation is, I doubt it would get over 10,000 votes. Also, during the review process Lego would surely realize that the market just isn’t there for a lego series based on a game never released outside of Japan. Nintendo would go with ANY other franchise than Mother if they were to approve a lego set.

Supported!

I really like this! The amount of detail it has really makes it stand out among the previous models we’ve seen this far. I just made a LEGO Ideas account so I can give this one my vote! Not to be pessimistic here, but I still don’t think this thing’s gonna make it. I mean, how many people out there have heard of MOTHER 3 aside from fans like us?

Still, I’m hoping Nintendo might recognize the potential here, just as long as its fans don’t go nuts and take it too seriously. (I just got back from a Facebook post of a LEGO Zelda idea on the same site as this one, filled to the brim with people being disgusted and saying it would “ruin” the franchise the same way it’s “ruined” Star Wars and Harry Potter and whatnot. Some people REALLY can’t learn to laugh a little.)
*cough* Rant over. *AHEM*
Anyway maybe we’ll get really lucky and this’ll pass. Who knows! We Extra Cranky Ladies and Annoying Old Party Men of the EarthBound fanbase have faced greater odds before, haven’t we?~ 😀

I’ll support this since I’m a fan of MOTHER/EarthBound and I’ve been a fan of Lego since…I was little. XD

Nintendo already refused a Zelda set… they are not interested by Legos. Also, a single set doesn’t fully represent the series, we should try to create several different things from Mother 1,2 and 3.

I supported it because I would buy it regardless if nintendo will actually sell it or not. Maybe they can just sell it online so it’s easier for finding a market not just in the U.S.

They ask what the audience for this set would be.

Obviously kids, adults and young women too!

This NEEDS to be real. Except I really don’t think it will get the 10000 votes it needs and get past Lego. It would really cool though.

I honestly don’t think this will get past both Nintendo and Lego. As much as I would like it to be real, I just don’t think its possible
