The moment Australian Nintendo fans have eagerly been awaiting has finally arrived: the much anticipated Luigi’s Mansion 2 Diorama is now available from the local Club Nintendo catalogue. This extremely limited and individually numbered item is priced at a whopping 5000 star points.
As the catalogue describes:
Celebrate the Year of Luigi and spook up your shelf with this limited edition, individually numbered Luigi’s Mansion 2 diorama. As Mario’s scaredy-cat brother enters the mansion with his trusty Poltergust 5000, he’s greeted by the ever-pleasant Polterpup and mischievous g-g-g-ghosts in this 12.5cm x10.5cm x 7cm model!
At 5000 star points, the Luigi’s Mansion 2 Diorama is possibly the most expensive item to ever grace the Australian version of Club Nintendo. Previous high priced items have included the Wii Super NES Classic Controller, the Golden Nunchuk, and even the recent Hanafuda cards — all coming in at 3000 points each. However, the Luigi's Mansion 2 Diorama blows the costs of these past catalogue items out of the water.
It's impossible to tell if the Luigi's Mansion 2 diorama will sell out as fast as certain previously available items; it all depends on just how limited in supply it is and just how many Aussies have been saving up for this bad boy. The Year of Luigi coin went within seconds at 1250 star points, and the Hanafuda cards for 3000 points have also disappeared from the store after 2 months.
All that can be advised is if you want this diorama, get it while you can. There’s no guarantee it'll hang around for an extended period of time, but at the price it is, those who don’t have the required amount of star points right now just might be in luck if they do need to save up a bit more.
If you're an Aussie, let us know if you'll need more points — or have already successfully ordered the Luigi's Mansion 2 Diorama.
