EarthBound fans, time to weep: Banpresto releases limited ed. Mr. Saturn plushie in Japan

   0


Well, we finally got Club Nintendo in North America, but there will always be reasons to remain jealous of Japan. Toymaker Banpresto is currently selling a life-sized Mr. Saturn plush, coming in at just under half a meter (4 apples) tall. I can't read Japanese at all but from what I can make out on the site (and the Google-translated link on Offworld, below) it looks like a limited edition of 500 will be on sale until the end of February. They're priced at 12,000, or roughly $120 US, not surprising given the limited run and the size of the thing. Seriously, look at those hands!:



I finally got to play EarthBound in the middle of last year by borrowing a friend's copy, and enjoyed it immensely. Sadly, even if I had the money I don't have the space for a gigantic Mr. Saturn in my house, but for any superfans that do, wire money to a friend in Japan as soon as possible and have them put a reservation down.

Man, I can just picture someone selling this with a complete copy of EarthBound on eBay for a bucketload of cash.
