EBchamp won the super-rare EarthBound ruler that was on eBay a few weeks back, and he was kind enough to take some more photos of it for the rest of us. #gallery-1 { margin: auto; } #gallery-1 .gallery-item { float: left; margin-top: 10px; text-align: center; width: 25%; } #gallery-1 img { border: 2px solid #cfcfcf; } #gallery-1 .gallery-caption { ...Read More »

Remember those official EarthBound Pogs that hit eBay a week or two ago? The auction finally ended and the final price was $255. Hopefully they’ve found a good home, possibly as part of an EarthBound shrine 😛 ...Read More »

Since there’s been a bunch of EarthBound-related promotional stuff lately, I thought it might be good to quickly mention these things. These are photo slides of EarthBound stuff, sent by Nintendo’s PR company to media outlets for use in magaznes and whatnot. As far as I know, these two are the only ones known to exist, or at least are the only ones that are floating around out there in...Read More »

eNot too long after those EarthBound promotional materials were recently auctioned off, a fellow by the name of Starman 99 contacted me and mentioned he happened to have one of the super-rare EarthBound rulers that were also used as promotional items back in 1995. Luckily for collectors, he decided to put it up for auction here! This marks the first time I’ve ever seen one of these actually ...Read More »

A good while back Starmen.Net held a YouTube video contest, and one of the prizes was a rare Mach Pizza air freshener. TomBobBlender won it with his insanely good Mario Paint compositions, and here we see him receiving his prize: I wonder if it still smells like pizza. Anyway, sometimes these things go for hundreds of dollars, though usually they go for less than that nowadays. I think it was act...Read More »

I’m not even sure of how to start explaining this, but basically there’s a Japanese site where famous people, somewhat-known people, and regular people can create gaming-related blogs and post on them. Of course, the real attraction are the famous/somewhat-known people’s blogs. Looking around the site a while back, I came across one female tarento who really likes the MOTHER seri...Read More »

A sample cart/possible prototype cart of EarthBound is up for sale on eBay right now. From the auction page: The time has come for me to sell some of the gems in my collection, and this is probably the biggest of them. For sale i have a prototype version of the great Earthbound, an RPG never released in Europe. It’s the NTSC version. It comes in a official EPROM board, it was tested recently...Read More »

It looks like one of the few known EarthBound Zero prototype cartridges is back on the auction block: It’s priced at a little over $3000, though there’s also an “or best offer” set on it. This one sold for $1500 last time, so I’m not sure this one will go for the full $3000. You can check out more info about this and all the other known EarthBound Zero prototypes her...Read More »

Here’s a piece of EarthBound merchandise almost no one knows about, and only two have been confirmed to exist in the past 10+ years that Starmen.Net has been around. This is the tale… of the EarthBound Ruler! (more…) ...Read More »
