How upset/excited were you for the "Platinum award" on Club Nintendo?

I ended up getting gold so I only got a calendar but I imagined alot of people felt angry about the pin collection considering I heard last year's prize was a Mario statue. On that note for anyone who wants to answer this: how often do the prizes change on Club Nintendo? I don't see anything on there I want to spend my points on just yet.

Pretty cool reward. Never got one of the Platinum ones before. Previous ones were cooler obviously, but the pins are still nice. I plan on wearing them to work! O~hohohohohohh!

i was very happy, and very sure it would be something LoZ related, being the 25th anniversary and all. and then i was very disappointed to find we'd be receiveing NOE's leftovers from last year. buttons... i never expected the prize to have a practical use... but buttons aren't even remotely cool. i can't rub this in my friends' faces, no sir.

I'm good with it. I'd put the three platinum rewards roughly on par with one another.

Yes, it should have been Zelda-related.
shoot the core.

Is the gold reward always a calendar?

I assumed that since we got the awesome Mario & Co. statue, that we would get something along those lines or much better (since it is Zelda's 25th Anniv, maybe a Zelda / Link & Co. statue).
CAPCOM needs to make a 3rd Capcom Classics Collection (Include Super Street Fighter II), Mega Man: Powered Up 2 & Mega Man: Powered Up 3 for the N3DS!

And really people thought the Mario Hat was better than this? The statue wasn't even a nice statue or anything, I believe it's made of a kind of hard rubber. The pins and the way they're displayed are pretty damn nice. Granted the Japanese platinum reward of the Gold Plated Mario figure still blows all of the American ones away, but still.

I would rather get a Kirby pin set, but what ever. I might sell it somewhere down the line.

Mehh I've seen pin sets like this, made by fans on eBay for years. Crap reward is crap IMO. But if you like them, more power to you

If there's anyone who earned the Platinum reward but doesn't want it (particularly in Canada), give me a PM. I earned my Platinum status early on in the year, but Nintendo is currently telling me that I only earned 120 coins all year. I've been back and forth with them, and their customer service usually doesn't let me down, but they're being pretty stubborn with this one. If they don't relent and give me my reward, and you really don't want yours, I'd like to talk about having yours shipped to me, so I don't miss a year.

But I'm reasonably pleased with the award. Any kind of free memorabilia is cool with me.
