The Fourteen Best Rabite Merchandise – Part Two

March 31st, 2009 | Dr. Sheexy | Filed under Lists, Merchandise

The list continues!

7.) Rabite Necklace

When Legend of Mana came out in Japan they raffled off a lot of neat things. This little necklace is just one of them. There were maybe 700 or so raffled off.

The little Rabite is made out of pewter and looks the same as the one from the phone card and zipper pull set. The cord the Rabite is on is super small, so if you plan on wearing this thing you might want to extend it.

6.) Pewter Rabite Cellphone Jockey

These were also raffled off when Legend of Mana came out, there are around 500 of them.

This is the same pewter Rabite that is on the necklace, only now it’s on a decorative cord ready to be strapped onto your cellphone. I keep this little guy on my cellphone all the time, it brings me good luck. Maybe.

5.) Rabite Cellphone Jockey

Hey, it’s another cellphone jockey, only this one is in color! The colors Duke, the colors!

This one has a much happier expression on it and also comes with a light blue strap that says “RABI” on top, and has a super soft tan material on the bottom.
I’m not entirely sure how durable this little guy is though, as I haven’t used mine on anything yet.

4.) Rabite Cleaner

Finding big Rabite plushes is hard, so this tiny Rabite plush is the next best thing!
Well maybe not… but it’s pretty neat. It’s designed to tag along on your DS and you can use its super soft underside to clean off the screen. You could also use it for your cellphone or your computer or even your microwave, but to be honest I think I’ll keep mine away from dirty surfaces and keep it in mint condition. You can also pretend that it’s a baby Rabite. Not that I do that or anything.

You can get your own here.

3.) Rabite Zippo Lighter

Fire is awesome. Rabites are awesome. A Zippo lighter that has Rabites on it?

That’s double awesome!

There are only 300 of these items in existance, and they were either given to people who worked at Square or raffled off in Japan, so finding them is near impossible. They have Rabites on each side except for the top and bottom, and it’s official Zippo too, so you know it’s good. Mine is number 284.

2.) Small Rabite Plushies

These little guys come in two varieties, those with their eyes open and those with their eyes closed. They are both super awesome. There are so many things you can do with them, for examples see this video I made.

So I ask you, what’s better than a small rabite plush? The answer is…

1.) Giant Rabite Plush

This giant Rabite Plush is easily the greatest piece of Rabite Merchandise ever made.
Look at how happy that lady is. Just look at her.

I can only hope that one day I will be that happy.


The Fourteen Best Rabite Merchandise – Part 1

March 28th, 2009 | Dr. Sheexy | Filed under Lists, Merchandise

Let’s face it, Rabites are awesome. So awesome that Square-Enix has released a few various pieces of merchandise in their image. Most of them are awesome, but some don’t seem to capture the true essence of the Rabite. In this news post I’ll take you through the range of Rabite themed merchandise, starting with the sub-par and ending with the spectacular.

14.) Rabite T-Shirt

This less than amazing T-shirt has two pictures of Rabites on it. A tiny colored one on the back, and an outline of one on a sleeve. Finding this item is doubtful, because after nearly 10 years any T-shirt is probably going to be looking ratty.

13.) Rabite and Golem Postcard

The Legend of Mana Postcard booklet comes with a lot of great drawings of the characters from the game, but it seems they got lazy near the end of the booklet and just started packing random characters together on the cards. In this great card we have a Rabite about to be jumped by a miniature Golem.

12.) Rabite Phone Card and Zipper Pull

This combination just puzzles me.
You get a 50 minute pre-paid phone card and a stainless steel zipper pull together in a pretty neat little Rabite themed frame.

I thought about using the Rabite phone card while I was in Japan, but I decided against it because it would punch holes through the thing. So forever it will sit inside the little nook on this frame. Also I haven’t put the zipper on anything because it seems to remove it from the frame.
I will never understand the logic behind this thing.

11.) Rabite Fan

Technically this isn’t merchandise, as they gave them out during conferences or as a press kit, but it’s still a Rabite. Great for cooling yourself off on a hot summer day, or for using in an old school style play where you have to put a mask up in front of your face!

Tomnet from the forums has one and I’m totally jealous.

10.) Rabite Trading Card

Alone you can’t do much with this card, but if you have more of the cards you can make a deck, and then you can play the Rabite and tap it to prevent two damage to one of your characters. That’s probably helpful. Also the Rabite gets an attack or defense bonus if you have the Hero or the Heroine out! Neat!

Seiken Densetsu 3 also has a card game to go with it. You can read the news post about it and the LoM trading card game here, or learn how to play the former here.

9.) Rabite Mousepad

I want to find one of these. But I wouldn’t use it as a mousepad, I would hang it on my wall.

Finding one of these is probably going to be impossible, because every mousepad I’ve seen has ended up looking really terrible after just a few years of use, let alone over nine.

8.) Rabite Finger Puppet

Imagine how much fun you can have with a Rabite finger puppet.
If you said not much, then I’m afraid I have to disagree with you. Once you put this little guy on your finger the whole world changes. Now your bedroom isn’t just your bedroom, it’s Gaia’s Navel. Your back yard isn’t your back yard anymore, it’s the fields between Potos and Pandora. Those aren’t your parents coming to play Rabite games with you, they’re coming to offer you psychological counseling.
This thing is seriously fun though, don’t knock it until you’ve played with it.

That concludes the list for now! Tune in on Tuesday when I go over the best of the Rabite Merchandise!
