No problem this year: there's only one choice.

My desire for that figurine set is immeasurable. Unless I finally come across a working code generator Nintendo releases a flurry of first-party titles this year, it might not come within my reach.

You'll also need a timemachine since these are the rewards for this year which ended three days ago.

Oh.

[dukar].

I hadn't updated my account since ordering the Mario cap, so every thought pertaining to Club Nintendo slipped from my memory until now. I wouldn't have had enough Coins anyway, though, so whatever.

I'm digging that Samus calendar, but will one like it even be available this year/next year?  For that matter, how many games would I have to buy to get it?

For goodness sake. The Luigi on that figure is in the exact same pose as an already existing Luigi figure. It's a nice pose and all, but...

As for me, I don't get games very often and, even with all the codes I got from family members, I wouldn't have enough. So I never registered a single game this year.

You can still use the coins you'd get for the other items. Although there hasn't been anything particularly desirable yet.

A Gold membership requires at least 300 Coins. That's ten DS games or six Wii games in one year. The only reason I could afford the Mario cap was because I registered two years' worth of games, including some whose codes were "donated" by my cousin.

Well aware. I just meant getting enough to get gold/platinum.

You could actually get Platinum status for about $270 by buying a DSi and 44 200-point games.

So, if I registered every Wii/DS game I own, I could conceivably get a cool Samus swimsuit calendar.  If one is ever available again.

Cheer up. I'm sure someone will post images online after getting this years calendar. :)

Take a closer look. The calender includes various Nintendo characters, and this one is last years model anyway.

Also, I got my Mario trophy in the mail. I'm glad I held off from registering them last year.
As a game that requires six friends, an HDTV, and skill, I can see why the majority of TMK is going to hate on it hard.

I hate you so much for calling it a trophy. ;~;

Anyways, I've reached Gold membership for this year.

The site seems to be broken right now though; it errors when I try to click to accept.
