Nintendo UK Store Promotes Its Awesome 'Cool Stuff' Range

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

Figurines! Clothes! 3DS cases! Much more!

We like cool stuff, we suspect you like cool stuff too — it's cool after all. The Nintendo UK store — still surprisingly the only official online store of its type in terms of range of goods and setup — is keen to let you know that it's got you covered for fun gaming extras that help you show the world how much you love Nintendo.

The 'Cool Stuff' section on the store has caught our eye (thanks for the heads up 123axis!) for its surprisingly decent range of goodies. There are inexpensive options such as keyrings, t-shirts and hats, useful accessories such as stylish 3DS cases and console / GamePad skins, and some pricey — in some cases exclusive for a UK retailer — figurines. Check out some of the products below.

Plenty of these items have been on the store for a while, but the new section and its design do a great job of showing them off. We're certainly hopeful that other countries in Europe will have similar stores soon, while it'll be interesting to see whether an equivalent with this approach to retail-style promotion will come to North America.

If you're in the UK, check out the full range and let us know if any catch your eye.

@faint I guess you should ass this to the things, the UK gets, that NO ONE ELSE does.

The gunship looks amazing, but the Link statue is pretty ugly :D

This is more like it. A bit pricey, but it's a move they should have done ages ago.
I'd love to see some of the Japanese Club Nintendo stuff available for purchase too.

@HyperSonicEXE The gunship, ganondorf and Link and Epona Exclusive are all still available. I have the gunship and the same link/epona.
For those who are interested there is a standard link/epona without the bronzing paint as well.

Sorry, the site FAQ specifically states that they do not ship physical items outside of the UK. I wouldn't be surprised if some of these items turn up on ebay at inflated prices, however...

Those figures are similar in cost to say that custom modded NES. (Which has a purpose if people love the NES as much as they claim to).

A nunchuck to go with the Mario / Luigi wiimotes / Wheels or the SNES Classic Controller would be something I would be willing to buy. (Probably more so eventually if it was just always in stock. Kind of against paying £50 for a Club Nintendo reward).

The Luigi 3DS XL Case is ok I suppose. If they had the Monster Hunter 4 - Grip for the 3DS LL I would get that.

I didn't read the headline right, and I was thinking 'Boy! That must cost a lot of Club Nintendo points!' lol!

Every time Nintendo is pressured financially, they ramp up their merchandising efforts, and every time its interesting to see what they bring out.

These all come at rather... 'premium' prices, but it'll certainly help keep their most ardent fans around, and be neat show pieces and conversations starters. :)
