    Some of you might remember about a gbatemper which bought NSMB Wii ahead of time in Australia and posted the receipt here as "proof"... then admitting to dumping the game and sharing it online:P
    The rest is all across the internet.
    Well, it seems nintendo doesn't hold grudges and they gifted him a Ganon statue, which was given to Wind Waker HD pre-orderers in the UK.

    I guess that ninty realized that the poor fella couldn't pay 1.5 million after all.
    Or... he did and Ninty gave the statue as a "reward" for the payoff.

    Expensive statue then...

    kongnutz, kongbutz, kingnutz or whatever his name was didnt pay 1.5 million of course. But he isnt permitted to disclose further information. He is being used as a tool by nintendo to show off that they can get you.

    "He gazed down at the enormous statue. Twenty seven years it had taken him to learn what kind of smile was hidden beneath the plumber's moustache. O cruel, needless misunderstanding! O stubborn, self-willed exile from the loving breast! Two gin-scented tears trickled down the sides of his nose. But it was all right, everything was all right, the struggle was finished. He had won the victory over himself. He loved Nintendo."

    Apparently the statue had nothing to do with the NSMB Wii dump. He was just selected by EBGames among hundreds of others for being a "loyal customer" (aka someone who has bought "a shitload of Nintendo stuff").
