Yesterdays post showed a limited edition statue set for Little Big Planet that you could have won if you participated in the PlayStation Reward Sweepstakes. I said that the statues were probably “the” rarest LBP collectibles on the market right now.
Well….. what could beat limited edition statues officially made by PlayStation? Not many things, but perhaps a bunch of ORIGINAL CONCEPT ARTWORK for the game! Thanks for our friend Joseph for submitting the auctions!
The studio that brought LittleBigPlanet, Media Molecule, has put up a number of charity auctions, all proceeds going to the Red Cross which will help people affected by the disasters from the earthquake and tsunami in Japan. The auctions are for signed/framed original piece of LittleBigPlanet concept artwork, and a signed copy of LittleBigPlanet for PS3. Media Molecule says in the auctions:
“The artwork is by the very sexy Francis Pang, the chief creator of Sackboy, and shows some ideas for the development of our beloved hessian chum, and if we may be so bold, a piece of gaming history. In the words of Indiana Jones, this belong in a museum!There are four of these pieces of artwork, each one is different, and as they are the originals, they unique. It comes all nice and framed, by a local pro. See our other auctions for the other three, plus more things!“
Media Molecule will also include a copy of LittleBigPlanet which comes with a customized “Mm Special Edition Box Art” that has been signed by the whole team! What’s cool is that there are only a small number of these custom covers in existence, as they were originally intended to be owned only by Media Molecule staff. Listed below are all of their auctions:
LittleBigPlanet Sackboy Blue Frame Concept Art 1/4 – currently at $375
LittleBigPlanet Sackboy Yellow Frame Concept Art 2/4 – currently at $232.50
LittleBigPlanet Sackboy Green Frame Concept Art 3/4 – currently at $365
LittleBigPlanet Sackboy Red Frame Concept Art 4/4 – currently at $380
LittleBigPlanet Sackboy Crown (DLC) – currently at $575.25. “This is an auction for an in-game crown item for your Sackboy for use in LittleBigPlanet 1 and 2 on PlayStation 3.These are very rare, and usually reserved for competition winners and people who go above and beyond the call of duty.This is your chance to buy yourself into royalty. Some may see this as cheating (OMG), but by winning this item you will be aiding people in need, and we think that is very worthy of recognition indeed. Naysayers be damned, this is the real deal!”
