Nintendo of Europe updates their Stars Catalogue on a relatively frequent basis - today is yet another one of those days, because they've added seven new items to exchange your stars for.
If you've been paying attention to the last few updates, you should know that there are already yellow and blue Pikmin plushies available, so it comes as no surprise that one of today's new items is a red Pikmin plush to complete the set.
Other items include two sets of foam wall decorations, and more Super Smash Bros. Brawl objects. The full list of new things is below, along with the prices:
- Pokémon Postcard - 100 stars
- Super Smash Bros. Brawl Sticker Sheet - 250 stars
- Super Smash Bros. Brawl Notepad - 3000 stars
- Nintendo CD Case - 2000 stars
- Mario, Luigi and Bowser Foam Walls - 4500 stars
- Nintendo Favourites Foam Walls - 4500 stars
- Pikmin Figures (Red) - 2000 stars
All of these are available in all European countries supported by Club Nintendo except Portugal (which is missing a few), so see if there's anything you want!
Do they send you the sticker sheet, or do you have to print it out?
@Gavin: They send it, of course.
That's actually pretty sweet. Believe it or not, a Mario, Luigi and Bowser Foam Wall sounds all kinds of sweet. I wish this was available in the States I'd be all over this. Am I the only one?
Just died a little inside.
Meh, I always get DSi points for my stars...
I asked because back in the GC days, I bought an iron on t-shirt transfer thing from Club Nintendo, and you had to print it onto a special material.
I bought a Mario Party 8 sticker sheet about a year ago, and that was sent to me, so I think this should be exactly the same.
Eh, I'm glad for you Europeans, at any rate. I do in fact understand why NoE is able to provide more and better rewards.
Ah sweet! I want the Mario, Luigi and Bowser foam walls big time!! Lotsa stars tho'.
@Marcel: It says they are 4500 not 3000, on teh site, just so you know.
@Machu: Weird, I could swear they were 3000 just a while ago. Don't think those are worth it now!
@Marcel: Agreed. 4500 is a bit too much for a bit of foam. But they are soo coool.
I might just get the CD case, got one already for Wii games, but need another one cos it's full.
haha, Gavin, I feel your pain, some of the old Nintendo Club shop stuff was really a rip-off. I believe you did have to print out the stickers yourself too back then!
Only thing I've ever got from them was the Melodies of Time CD. Thankfully at least these days Wii points are in ready supply and you can do something useful with your stars.
Can someone tell NOA that we in America enjoy having Nintendo themed goodies too!
You guy's remember how i stated that NOA sucks and we get the ass end treatment, well this is the proof. I haven't got anything from Club Nintendo because most of it sucks. I think we get the stuff that's discarded from Nintendo. But wow plush, toys foam walls. Yea we get a link poster,wow .I guess i need cheese with my wine,but Europe's and Japan's Club Nintendo rocks , and Usa's is lacking way too much.Why does Nintendo treat everyone different, i don't understand it.I can't help but to notice stuff like that. But what does it matter Nintendo prints money, i doubt they even care.
@Odnetnin: You say you understand why NoE gives better rewards than NoA? Mind explaining it to the rest of us Americans who are tired of getting the shaft? ME WANT PIKMIN PLUSHEES!
Why do Europeans always seem to get the small things that make their country awesome?
I'm with Stuffgamer1, I REALLY want to see those Pikmin plushies become available over here. (Although then I'd have to decide what color to get, hmm.)
Are stars of equal value to coins? (wii game=50, ds games=30?)
Oh well. At least the Europeans are happy.
@Charlie The Unicorn Hahaha you have a point there...
@V8 Ninja: Their country?
By the way, Nintendo Week said they were "looking at the latest Club Nintendo prizes" in their next episode
I ordered some Super Mario World magnets once, they are awesome and are still on fridge.
More notepads...I've not even started with my Mario and Zelda ones yet (and probably never will).
I find the foam things weird. Who selected the artwork? Yeah let's use Mario, Luigi and Bowser from Paper Mario on the N64...forget Bowser's Insider Story which only came out a week ago...
I'm still yerning for a few of the items America has. I'll keep my stars for another day (if they start to expire I might get one of the Pikmin)...including the (last I counted) 4000 in my unregistered pile.
@bboy2970. I used to use the conversion rate of 5 stars=1 coin based on the fact a Wii game costs €50 and gets 250 stars while a DS game costs €40 and gets 200 (they use a sliding scale of cost so cheaper games like Brain Training only net you 100 stars). It should be noted post play surveys are a lot rarer on the European service (you'll only get them if you register within the first week, while the American service is a lot more lax...it should be noted Wii Shop games are an exception*)
*-You'll always get a survey worth 50 stars for these; which in a way can make it the cheapest way to gain stars.
@Starwolf I'd gladly trade you all the crappy stuff In our store for just one actual good thing from the u.k. store =P
lz2009 is right, Nintendo Week DID say next week's episode will including the latest Club Nintendo prizes. I hope that means we're finally going to get something awesome for a change...
i am just to jealous right now a year gows by and all we get are lame posters and you ares along with noj get all the good things i just want to cry
...HOW COME THE U.S. BARELY GETS ANYTHING?! sure that Zelda poster set is nice, and i want it but theres barely anything else to get
Why are some things missing from Portugal? There are gamers in Portugal too! (I think)
Cool, I already have the yellow and blue Pikmin, so I will be picking the red one up shortly. I have a few unused DS star vouchers sitting around, so hopefully with the 500 or so stars I already have, I'll be able to afford it.
Oh, well NOA only got one...and it's just a poster. Wimpy...
Congrats guys! Really hoping for more prizes for NoA's Club N really soon... I'm growing impatient.
For curious Americans;
DS/Wii games which retail for £19.99 or under = 150 Stars.
£29.99 or under = 200 Stars.
£34.99 or under(The average cost of a Wii game) = 250 Stars.
Hardware = Usually 500 Stars.
Think my GC came with 1000 though.
DS' are usually 500, even the DSi's. Wii's are around 1200.
sigh I really want that Link and Epona Statue. Too bad Im American
Oh, I forgot to add that occasionally you can do a little survey on Nintendo's site to claim 50 stars for certain VC/WiiWare/DSiWare games too.
what is a 'foam wall' exactly? is that something lunatics get their cells padded with?
so unfair to us americans
I really hate Club Nintendo in North America. It's a miserable joke with nothing good in it. I wish I've gotten the Game & Watch Collection, but I didn't. Now their is nothing worth getting in North America.
Like I said, I think NOA's adding stuff this weekend
Lucky UK people. Club Nintendo of America stinks.
The Australian club Nintendo hasn't had one update since the site went live over half a year ago...I'm jealous.
@Homer: Probably becuase no-one's using it.
@Stuffy Frankly, Nintendo isn't as big in Europe as it is in America. There is so much demand in the U.S. that Nintendo can't give out points cards, for example, because they'd be out of stock in hours.
@Odnetnin: You're saying we can't get good stuff because there's too many of us? Man, that's BULL! If that was true, wouldn't the Australian Club Nintendo have the best stuff ever?
Anyway, I'd kind of rather we were always out of stock on everything awesome than have tons of crap nobody wants. Wouldn't you agree?
@stuff: Not really. I'm already waiting on the zelda posters because they had to be backordered, and there's no word on my Mario hat yet
Hurrah! More worthless old toot!
Lol, I'm gonna get that.
Naw... We still lack Club Nintendo in all Scandinavian countries... I would easily be a platinum member, or whatever it's called... I don't even know what it's called, because we've never had it! I asked the Swedish HQ and they old me that they "unfortunately could not participate in the program. " Bah, humbug!
@lz2009: My posters are backordered, too. Idiots probably didn't expect the high demand, never mind it's easily (IMO) the coolest thing on Club Nintendo to date (that you could spend coins on), and it's cheap enough that pretty much EVERYBODY has enough coins to get it. Nintendo's really bad at foresight lately.
As for your hat, you should've at least gotten an e-mail about it by now. I got one about my Punch-Out!! download. Remember that they only promised to fill those orders by Nov. 1. You got a couple more weeks before you should be concerned.
See us americans whine about our Club Nintendo while our friend RyuZebian can't even get anything. Kinda makes you feel lucky in a way.I'm much more interested in plush and action figures though. Why isn't a Mario plush available in every Club? That should be the first thing we are offerd
@Stuff: Yeah, but I don't like waiting
I don't like waiting either, but I find it MUCH more tolerable when the deadline has not yet been passed.
I think the European loyalty programme is NoE's way of saying sorry for screwing us over on all the games.
You should see NZ and Australia's items. We dont even reach ten!

@Kelvin: WTF you talking about? Europe's getting everything lately! America STILL lacks NPC Pikmin 2, SSB64, Pilotwings (for those who care, which is not I), Disaster: Day of Crisis (which I don't actually know much about, but...), Trace Memory 2 (or whatever it's called over there), Super Mario's Picross, and Devil World! Probably more, but that's all I could think of off the top of my head. I'd say that's MORE than enough to cement Europe's place as "getting treated better by Nintendo than America."
Aw, me want the sticker sheet...and the notebook.
