Just as Earthbound (Mother 2 in Japan) for the SNES included an official player's guide, Fangamer accompanied the recent release of Mother 3's fan-translation English patch with a Mother 3 Handbook, a 240-page guide brimming with game facts, secrets, and art.
Inspired by the clay models featured in the original Earthbound Nintendo Player's Guide, Camille Young, wife of Starmen.net (Mother online community) and Fangamer head Reid Young, created a series of impressive figurines for the new handbook, using "10-year-old scraps of Sculpey III polymer clay" and adding color to them with acrylics paint. Though the figures are small, ranging from 1.5cm to 4.5in tall, Camille spent around 12.7 hours on each piece.
I've gathered my favorites below, but you can see more of them and some in-progress shots on Camille's blog:
