I'm STILL waiting for my Majoras Mask Soundtrack!

 

I basically quit the pursuit of racking up points after ordering it several months ago.... IIRC I was getting several emails to the effect of if I didn't use my points I would lose them within a few more days; which it seems was a fake out?

 

I ordered that soundtrack begrudgingly.  A month or so later the colored cradles hit, even if I had my coins still I doubt I would have gotten one anyways as they sold out so fast IIRC.

 

Now here I am looking at that Luigi statue saying how cool it looks and at the same time remembering how shitty this program is!

 

I did manage to snag a t-shirt and some pouches over the years I guess.

I also am waiting on my Majora's Mask Soundtrack as well. Some people have been getting notifications that theirs has shipped, but not me yet. No rush though. Also, if I read this correctly, the Majora's Mask Soundtrack was one of the yearly platinum rewards, and not a reward you'd spend coins on.

How long have the Mario and luigi 3ds pouches been available? I don't remember seeing them during the cradle sale.

You may be right on that.  Looking back it was in August that I redeemed for that platinum reward, should have gone for the posters!

Just throwing it out there... I got 1,600+ coins (with over 2,000 in vouchers laying around) and I just can't justify the statue. I am sure there are people who can or will buy it just because it's unique, but I don't think the statue will appeal to many beyond "hey, it's something not completely awful to buy", which was a common statement with the 3DS XL cradle. 

Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't pay 1500 coins for it (mainly because I love the digital games they started and never have enough anyways), and I know why it wouldn't be worth it, but a statue is better than just letting the coins go to waste.

 

That seems to be a common trait with coin hoarders who won't incessantly stalk the CN site / this thread.  They have the coins to spend, but things just sell out too fast for them to get to it.  The Zelda posters sold out in what, less than an hour (*EDIT* Actually it took about a day, the 3DS XL chargers sold out in that time frame is what I was thinking about)?  That is a pretty basic item but it still sold out fast because it was only a 500 price tag that most could easily swing. 

 

 Last year we saw the Kirby medal, which was one of the coolest items offered in the US. The medal was small, but looked amazing and is pretty heavy. This coin was LE 1,000 (took like 8 hours to sell out too) and was only 600 coins. I would be ALL OVER the Luigi statue for 600 coins, consider it for 800, but 1,500 is excessive. 

 

800-1000 coins would be more reasonable given the typical coin vs. value ratio, but I think CN is trying to see how high they can go on these limited items.  There are just too many coins out there that they need to either lower the coins earned per survey or increase the price on the premium items.  I'd rather them do the latter and still keep the digital games at the same value.

 

The Kirby medal is the only thing I regret not picking up, I had the coins to spend, just thought I should wait to see what came up next. I can bet that if it was released today, it definitely wouldn't last 8 hours this time.

On the website it says it's for use with a 3DS, DS Lite, and DSi. So unfortunately, it won't fit with a 3DS XL.

yeah I know but I googled the dimensions and it should leave ample room, on paper anyways. just was curious if anyone had actually tried and could verify one way or the other.

Did they just raise the price of the pouches?  It was at 450.  Now it is showing 500.

 Never got any of the CN rewards. Are the Mario and Luigi pouches exclusive or can they be purchased other places?

It's up. 1500 coins.

 

Main, I probably have enough CN codes sitting around to get to 1500 but that is so many coins.  Then again it's fairly snazzy.

 

The statue should have been the reward for Platinum members,

 

Indeed!

 

Edit- Shouldn't have followed that link to see more pictures on the UK CN, super jealous of the stuff they've got.

I was just gonna post that....why does North America have such a laughable selection....I knee jerk bought the statue because I know at least half my coins expire in June and I have seen nothing interesting since the gold nunchuk.

Soooo, after looking at the UK stuff, I've come to the conclusion that Nintendo just doesn't give a s*** about the U.S.

If anyone is curious about if the 3DS XL will fit inside the Mario and Luigi Hat Pouches. Credit goes to the 3Ds boards over on reddit.

while I'm yet to get any of the new stuff CN has offered, I am glad they're actually adding new things. it's, dare I say... trending in the right direction?

Still canNOT believe I missed out on that cradle!!!

Oh? I didn't realize coins expired. I thought only "status" expired.

Was hoping to see it by Christmas but it's not looking too good

It was the cradle, but the cradle was a unique situation. Remember, we knew about it at least 3 days in advance, so people had ample time to obtain coins. 

 

I agree, though I don't think Nintendo has realized that the issue comes into play by their fluttering release schedule. If we got more routine updates and items were priced more fairly, we would see people taking the plunge. To put it another way, I didn't get the cradle because I wanted to see what the next item was. I thought, for whatever reason, Nintendo would at some point add a super high priced item that I wouldn't be able to afford of i bought... anything. This happened, except I didn't like it. I suspect many people feel the same way, especially since platinum status discourages entering 600+ coins a year. 

 

I think the Kirby coin would stick around. It released out of nowhere and it was high enough. Yeah, more people have coins now, but I still think it would have lasted a while.

I'm thinking the same thing. It looks really cool and snazzy, but 1500 seems like a lot. It also says "stands nearly 5-inches." I know from my personal life that "nearly 5 inches" isn't very big. 8-[

Yeah, as much as I like Luigi, love the Mansion games, and think the statue looks neat I think I'm going to end up passing since the 5" thing means that the whole thing's going to be about as tall as this Yoshi on my desk and that Luigi will probably be about the size of a Skylander.
