Seeking Eternal Blue Mail-In

Postby ssdninja » Wed May 08, 2019 11:13 pm

Figured now is good a time as any.

So this is my white whale and I've been turning over every stone I can to find it. The mail-in poster for Eternal Blue from the strategy guide. I know it's a rare find and I'm definitely willing to pay. I just can't take the daily ebay searching anymore :|

I'll put a picture below I found from Limited Run forums. It's one of the few actual pictures of the poster I've found. I think both there and here have turned up posters for people so hopefully a miracle happens. I'll even offer bounties for people that can just get me in touch with someone that is willing to sell. Any information is appreciated <3 <3 <3

You mean the Working Designs's mail in from the official guide, right? Oh I wish you the absolute of best luck with that. When I quickly found out how much just the guide itself sold for used right after I bought mine there was no way I was going to send that mail in card from the back of it. I was so glad I paid $20 new for that guide because I've seen it sell +$100 even used.

Yeah Eternal Blue stuff is definitely more rare and a bit more expensive as a result. I could have mailed away for this at the time too but I didn't for whatever reason. It's how I got my mail in for Silver Star.

I know there's at least one out there for me though. There has to be :(

Sorry it's been a struggle! If you're looking not as a merchandise collector but as someone who likes the art, you could do worse than to take some of the higher-quality Lunar-Net images and blow them up at Poster Burner or your local office store/FedEx/7-11/depending on your country. The other prime source is probably to keep an eye for when Victor Ireland resurfaces (I gather 2018 was a rough surgery year), since I recall him having various treasures stowed away from his personal collection back in the day. Good luck!

I definitely like the art, but this is probably the one thing where I really want to have the original. I've had the image of Sophia from Xenogears done in the method you described above and it did turn out amazing but Lunar stuff just has to be real deal ;_;

Contacting Ireland would be an amazing way to get this item but I wouldn't even know where to look for him. I can't seem to find social media for him anywhere. Was he active here at one time?

Thanks for the support and well wishes <3

A Sophia portrait---how classy! Vic used to be pretty active on his Gaijinworks forum and I recall him posting stuff for sale at other spots online in the past, but I think some health stuff has kept him offline for a while. Keep an eye there, I say!

Yeah it turned out really nice! Here's a picture of it.

I tried to make an account at Gaijinworks but my account hasn't been activated. I'm going to try and email their customer service now and see if I can catch that miracle lucky break.

Pretty sharp! Reminds me that there's only a few notable "paintings within games" that come to mind...naturally, the TSS portrait of Althena from the Goddess Tower, more frequently seen in Alun's profile, is the other!

Well I never got access to GaijinWorks forums so I emailed the customer service email and gave out the spiel. Haven't heard back yet and kinda don't think I will so it's looking like this phase of the search might be pittering out. Gonna stick with daily ebay searches and hope it pops up

One of the things I regretted not getting. The saddens of laziness. XD
