Mr. Saturn Merchandise

MOTHER 1+2 Mr. Saturn Book

This is a semi-rare item. It's basically a book filled with MOTHER 1 and 2 concept art. It also comes with a vacuum-sealed Mr. Saturn plush figure. This and the sheer rarity makes these books quite pricy.

Mr. Saturn Stickers

A bunch of Mr. Saturn stickers were in a "spring software book" released in March 2003 in Japan. I haven't seen these anywhere, so they're probably pretty rare nowadays.

MOTHER 1+2 Keychains

These were part of a special campaign for Community Store, a Japanese convenience store chain. Bottles of Coca-Cola products came with one keychain each. These are now rare and expensive.

MOTHER 1+2 Phone Cleaners

A set of MOTHER 1+2-themed cell phone screen cleaners was released a few years back. I assume they're nothing too special, but they ARE somewhat rare. So if you're a collector, keep an eye out!

Mr. Saturn Phone Strap

These were given out as extras if you pre-ordered MOTHER 1+2. They're rare, but not insanely rare. I see them every few weeks or so.

MOTHER 1+2 Mr. Saturn Plush

These are technically part of the MOTHER 1+2 Mr. Saturn Book, but because these plushes are often auctioned off by themselves, they deserve their own mention. These are rare and go for a lot.

Giant Mr. Saturn Figure

These were displayed during the MOTHER 1+2 event, and something like 10 people were given one as prizes. These are rare, huge, and go for a lot of money. I'm not sure what they're made of, though.

MOTHER 3 Mr. Saturn Plush

These are high-quality plushes. They were meant to be used in those crane games (also known as UFO catchers) for a limited time in Japan. They're rare and go for really high prices now. Using the included bandana, you can turn one into a Disguised Saturn!

Ordering from Japanese Sites

I've included links to places like Amazon Japan and Yahoo! Auctions Japan (YAJ for short), but ordering things from these places can be kind of tricky.

Amazon Japan: Ordering from Amazon Japan isn't too bad, but you might be scared by all the Japanese text at first. But fear not! On most Amazon Japan pages is a link you can click that will turn a lot of the site's text into English for you. The other thing you'll need to know is that 1. Amazon Japan can't and won't ship games outside of Japan and 2. if you're ordering a used item, not all sellers will ship internationally. But otherwise Amazon Japan is a cinch to order from.

Yahoo! Auctions Japan: This is an absolute treasure trove of MOTHER merchandise. Sadly, it's not very convenient to use if you're not in Japan. Most sellers won't ship outside of Japan and will probably be freaked out if you ask them a question in English. If you're not in Japan and don't know Japanese, then you'll need to use a service like Celga that will bid on stuff for you and then ship you the stuff once they receive it.
