    Pins? Unless I get teleported to Shibuya and get a timer on my hand, I don't want 'em.

    I'd love to get my hands on those pins! Even though I wouldn't actually use them, they're a nice collector's item, imo.

    They should really let Platinum members get both...But I got the pins, anyway.

    There nothing wrong the pins, nice collection item. If sealed, not opening.

    You could always sale them.

    I'm pretty sure Nintendo collectors will want REAL rare items, not a bunch of cheap pins that tons of Club Nintendo guys can get.

    Club Nintendo has always offered pretty lame rewards. I don't buy enough (well, any) of their games at this point to get enough points to get anything decent. I've since given up hope.

    The last Nintendo think I registered was my DSi- since then I haven't bought anything, meaning I'm not good enough for anything they offer. Even though I've been registered since 2002 or somewhere near there.

    And we here in the UK get precisely...DICK. We don't have the Gold/Platinum system. We just have Star Points which we can trade in for stuff that takes months to arrive. Seriously, my Mario Hat DS case is taking an age.

    Ordered mine. They look pretty neat, except for the giant  Nintendo at the bottom of EVERY one.

    I ordered the Mario Hat DS case because I was saving up for the actual wearable hat (the 4000 point one) but just as I got enough points they suddenly stopped offering them. Wankers. Even emailed them asking when they'd get more in and got a reply, the TL:DR version of which is basically 'fucked if I know'. I ordered it over a month ago and there's no sign of it. It says it can take up to 8 weeks but for fuck sake. Why does it take this long?

    And I agree, most of the stuff on there is absolute diahhrea. We can get ringtones and wallpapers from Google, thanks. The towels and fans and stuff are OK but the majority of it is worthless. The only thing that's always on there that I'd be interested in is the Link statue, which is 15,000 stars. I'd have to buy 15 Wiis for the sake of a tiny statue which breaks easily (the guys at my local GAME store had one...until Epona tried a flying leap off the desk and died on impact). It's a rip off. And the only game on there is Mario Tennis for the GBA? Get with the times, Nintendo. Nobody will pay 5000 stars for a game that old.

    For those international viewers, to put this in perspective, we get 250 stars per 3DS game, 750 for a 3DS console, 1000 for a Wii, and 50 per survey. It'll take a LONG time to get that statue.

    Australia's is worse, we only have like 10 things in our shop and no gold/platinum system either. They also started releasing point cards with games 1 year before you could redeem them.

    I just looked at Club UK's list of rewards and holy shit, you guys have more rewards than us and better rewards as well.

    I actually am starting to believe that all Platinum/Gold rewards will be Mario only. I was really hoping for Zelda, but whatever...

    And we get... nothing, because Club Nintendo still isn't supported here.

    And that's why I've given most of my codes to other people.

    I'm so glad I got my figure last year. These prizes look like they suck. I also got the Mario Party playing cards.
