Pluck A Plush Pikmin From Club Nintendo EU

Posted by Jon Wahlgren

Take over the world one garden at a time

Club Nintendo in Europe is on top of things. Stuff may be relatively expensive, but the variety and timeliness of gifts is usually much better than its American counterpart.

Case in point: for 2000 stars, you can snag your very own blue Pikmin doll.

The stuffed buggers are 24 cm, which isn't even close to life-size; kinda makes you wonder whether some sort of radioactive accident went down at Club Nintendo HQ.

If you've got the spacebucks, fly on over and claim one. It seems like blue is the only color option, but hey, beats sewing one yourself.

Not even, that Navy Blue case has been there since day one as well, they just changed the name of it and the picture (if you check the item description it explains everything.)

Club Nintendo lets you register games for points that you can redeem for prizes. It's just another thing we're missing out on.

How much is 2000 stars? Like, how many stars do you guys get for one game? I'm curious how many coins it would be if it came out on our Club Nintendo. I really want one...

@Popyman: I got 200 stars when I bought Rhythm Paradise the other day... So I'd have to buy 10 DS games to have enough for that plushie... I'm not sure how much you get for Wii games, but I want to say 250 stars..?

I only have about 950 stars at the moment anyway... Wonder how long that'll be in the catalogue!

@aaronfuhrer: I know we have club nintendo, I just said that because it's pretty useless. I was answering SUPERZELDAMAN's question, although I think he already knew the truth.

Thats actually pretty cool, not bad in price. 2000=10 DS games? That'd be the equivalent of 300 coins for us, I think. It's late though, so may be wrong.

Using Wii game = 250 stars = 50 coins it works out at...6000 coins. I'd be inclined to say yes. Moreso given the limitations on when they must be spent by.

Apparently, these Pikmin Plush figures are ex-stock from the Nintendo World Store. So basically, Europe gets another hand-me-down...

As for "America has no updates". If it follows the trend of Japan expect several new items after a year. Europe seems to be 1 item whenever we feel like it with no warning or knowledge in advance.

I forget where I read this, but somebody from Nintendo said they're adding SOMETHING for NA Club Nintendo this month. I guess we'll just have to wait and see what that's all about. Meanwhile, I have WELL over 1000 unspent coins, and that's after getting my Hanafura cards! :P

I was wondering if the plush Pikmin was the same as those from the store, as I've got a full set of red Pikmin here at home.

Just ordered one. I have just over 2000 stars left, so I could get another if they bring out any other colours.

But eight weeks delivery?! Sheesh...

Plush dolls.This should be a trend for all NClubs. Plush dolls are a piece of gaming that you can put anywhere and truly Shows how much a fan you are towards a particular series.I have lots of nintendo characters in plush, I will cherish these just as much as i cherish the series itself.

EU people, don`t forget that you canntop up your star points by 50 just by filling in questionnaires on some of the DSIW, WW and VC games you`ve download. that`l, help towarfs getting one of these.
just remembered, you also need to link you`re ds, and wii shop accounts to your club nintendo account.
