So the Club Nintendo North America year came to an end yesterday, and along with the beginning of a new one today the Big N has revealed what super special exclusive awards members who reached Gold or Platinum status are eligible for. The suspense is murderous!

In a repeat of last year, Gold status members get a 2011 desk calendar filled with Nintendo artwork from, among others, Mario, Legend of Zelda and Metroid.

Things on the Platinum side of the fence look statuesque. Members who achieved the top level can either go for the aforementioned calendar or a collectible figurine featuring Super Mario characters. The figurine stands about 3.9 inches tall with a diameter of 4.6 inches.

You have until July 31 to claim your award, which Club Nintendo says should ship sometime before December. Hop to it!
