Club Nintendo is all wrapped up in North America and it's heading towards its end date in PAL territories, too. Fans of the service in Europe and Australia can still grab some goodies with their remaining Stars, however, and some particularly awesome rewards have just been added.
All of these Mario Kart trophies are up for grabs, and we can say from experience that these are pretty neat; you don't even need to win a tournament, you just need to be winning enough at life to have plenty of Stars left. In fact, having enough Club Nintendo currency is the main problem - these cost 5000 Stars each in Europe and 4000 Stars each in Australia. In light of all the download games and physical rewards that have gone live in recent months, we doubt many will have that many Stars left.
If you do have enough, though, these must be tempting.
Hat tip to Benson for the heads up.
I like the shell cup. If it came to NA,I would of gotten it
Saving last bunch of stars for the coin and hopefully figure/diorama, 5000 is too much for this tiny replica.
I have 8500 stars, i really don't know what to get!!!!
Got 4100 stars again too little for the awsum stuff :/
Don't have enough stars and saving for the coin.
I hope we get this stuff on the NoA Club Nintendo.... oh wait... there is no more NoA Club Nintendo. But remember guys, NoA's club Nintendo is always superior no matter what because we were restricted in what digital games we got instead of having the whole library available like... other places did.
Yeah... I don't have enough stars even if I lived in Australia. Would totally get the Special Cup or Mushroom Cup if I could though.
I've got 10500 stars currently, but I need them for the Luigi's diorama, which was 7000 last time in Europe. With the remaining 3500, then, I'll grab the goodbye coin and maybe the cartridge box, I'm forced to leave the MK8 OST away, unfortunately... Definitely not interested in any of these trophies
I've got 5450 stars that I'm saving in the hope more games will be added in the last few weeks or at least what's there will be reduced.I've been tempted a couple of times to use them but for all that is currently there to choose from I can wait.Those 750 free stars I got the other day could come in useful.
Oh my god.... Just..... GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!
You can tell that not a lot of people have a lot of coins left because things like the Toad lamp or MK8 OST are not sold out.
One last thumb in the eye of North American Clubbers.
To anyone who is considering getting one of these... hurry! These trophies are simply amazing; they really look the part and are made to high quality standards. no cheapo plastic [email protected]
I really like the Banana and the Shell cups myself, but they all are pretty cool. Too bad none of them made it here to the States.
Yassss! This is exactly what I was waiting for and now I have ALL the trophies!! Except the large versions of the leaf cup!
I'd love that leaf cup trophy. Ah well.
5000/4000 stars each? I thought it was for the set, wow. How tall are they anyway?
I only have 6950 stars left, and both the Shell and Lightning trophies that I like.
I think I may play the waiting game and see what comes in the final days, I'm particularly eager to get that Club Nintendo Goodbye coin.
Then at the end, the question may be if I get a Special Cup, or a Majora's Mask lamp, hmm.
Just another slap in the face to a NA customer.
Oh noooooo! I had 5600 stars and spent them for VC titles. Although I really wanted to have Super Mario World, such a trophy would be just lovely to have at home in the cabinet. :/
@ikki5 I wonder if there was ever a clear reason we never got such good things like this? I would have gladly gotten that Leaf Cup. Or that Captain Toad lamp...
I already have all six of them. ..yes, all six, including the Lightning cup one that for some reason isn't re-released here. Why they haven't made Flower and Star cup variants though, I have no idea. :I I'm inclined to have those two custom-made somewhere, to have a complete set of the 8 standard cups.
Thanks for the heads up! Ordered the Leaf Cup.
@mobilesworking Nope, not gonna be the last one. More rewards will still be coming to us Europeans.
North America had much better rewards anyway, the European one in comparison is much worse.
Saw these a while back and wanted a set so badly, but AS USUAL, they weren't available to North Americans (not that I had the coins anyway). Looked them up on ebay out of curiosity and saw sets selling for over $1000. That's something I'll never own.
Can't decide between the leaf and special cup...Already have the mushroom one.
I still have my Shell trophy that I got a few years ago (Shown in my profile pic) and it is really sturdy and heavy.
I only have 2850 stars! I doubt that's even enough for the goodbye coin. C'mon Nintendo, you need to make this stuff cheaper, otherwise I'll be forced to get a load of crappy downloads.
@ledreppe I hope they don't make that Goodbye Coin too expensive, I have 2500 left, but I too doubt that'll be enough. Perhaps they'll mass produce the thing and make it cheap, because well, it's their last Club Nintendo reward. But probably not...
The special cup does look pretty. It's tempting.
@GenoBelmont I would have gotten a lot of stuff. I got to the point where I had 2300 coins about to expire so I just used them on whatever and even at one point, I had 800 expire.
False, for two+ years (probably more) we had nothing but paper except the random thing that would disappear within a matter of minutes. The only other thing we'd get was a restricted choice of games that most people had while you guys had an entire library available to you, blankets (relaxation sets), hats, bag, cases, trophies, chargers (we had those two but all the colours were gone in less than an hour), multiple Soundtracks, badges, home themes, T-shirts (and other clothing), 3DS and Wii U accessories, bookbags, notebooks and much more. You guys also got many of our platinum rewards. Yes, NA had some of the stuff you guys had at one time but nothing was ever restocked and the accessories we had were put up there and then just left there for years until gone. Let's also keep in mind who actually has a Club Nintendo that is updating stock and bringing in new stuff let alone, who actually still has a Club Nintendo. Anyone who thinks NoA Club Nintendo had it better is delusional and should see a doctor for symptoms of dementia.
Game selection was much better - that is all I care about. To be honest I was thinking fair enough until I got to the end, bit of a low blow that.
Game selection? You have the entire Wii library available to you, we had a small restricted selection of games which were often recycled and the majority of us already own which is what gave us our coins. Please, don't even try to think we had a better selection because that is total BS.
Where is the Club Nintendo replacement? We should of heard of it by now.
Had some stars expiring this month so went for the mk8 soundtrack last week, but still have enough for one of these, or do I hold on. I was hoping for the replica snes pad to come back on.
These are beautiful O_O
got 750 star by linking my NNID then i got 1100 star, after that i spend 1000 star for 2 3ds themes! i now have 100 star leftover! so i can't get it lol!
i hope that the goodbye coin cost less star but i highly doubt it
Meanwhile in America...
I was like omg! when I first saw this... but then I realised they are only 10 cm tall and plus it doesn't even say what they're made out of... I really hope it isn't plastic. Too expensive for 5k stars really.
Screw that. Not worth it. I've got some stars. I don't think it's quite enough to redeem them for all of those trophies, but no... definitely not worth it.
Now if they brought back those sweet SNES Controllers or Gold Nunchucks, then I'd be all over them.
As far as I can tell it's some kind of porcelain. But I'm not sure.
It's definitely not plastic. It's pretty heavy for its size.
I have all aside from the leaf trophy with 4500. May go out and buy two games with 250 points to tip me over.
Yes but what are they made of? If it's cheap hollow plastic with factory lines everywhere then I'm not jealous of you guys.
Doh.. only got 3600 stars left
Too many deals have been
O mah gaaaaaaawd said me the american
pretty much, what a crock of crap that the US never saw these...
To all the people from NA - at least you got some rewards! Latin America never got anything and if we used a NA we could get banned. Hopefully the next reward system will include us down south, because I really want a figurine like this!
@Trotterwatch your joking right? I liked most of the EU rewards better than NA.
Nintendo should have mailed one of these one dollar plastic toys to every club member as a thank you for your support. That would have made for a better farewell gift.
Sold out in Australia already.
They're not plastic...
Nintendo of Europe is certainly doing there fans a service.... I had so many coins for NoA's CN and I sat there waiting and waiting to see if NoA would add something worth while later on.... Nope... i had to waste all my coins on virtual console games I didn't really want, because if I wanted it before I had already purchased it long ago... sigh
There was just so much awesome PHYSICAL items you guys got, props to you guys, sucks balls for us... I hope this new reward program Nintendo is making will still have physical items. I want awesome Nintendo memorabilia not digital games that I'll never physically own...
I've got 1,600 stars left. The last two coins (Mario's 25th Anniversary and Year of Luigi) were 1,500 stars so I HOPE HOPE HOPE that the next coin is the same cost.
