Mario Figurine Alternatives From the Past


Look at that. Isn't it beautiful? I know I'm getting one. Are you? Oh, you didn't have enough Club Nintendo coins? Well, shoot, I'm sorry. It's OK, though, because you can always hit up the internet for some of Hasbro's Nintendo trophy figures, straight from the late '80s!


Yes, Nintendo merchandise was quite eccentric back then, featuring everything from Zelda foot lockers to Mario shower heads. These Nintendo "Trophy Figures" were probably the least insane products, though. Besides giving you a lovingly crafted scene direct from Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, or Punch-Out, they also had small labels on which you would write your high scores or some other accomplishment (I have no idea what you were supposed to be rewarded for with the Zelda ones).


Who knows if anyone was given these ceremoniously -- when I was a kid, I just wanted them because they were freakin' Mario toys. It'd probably be more than a little awkward if my mom and dad were keeping one in the closet until I finally crossed 678,000 points in Mario, and then presented me with the trophy and dinner at a buffet restaurant.

Three things I love about these trophies:
  • The explanatory names they're given, in case you have no idea what the hell is going on in the depicted scenes (and, let's face it: if you're a parent, you definitely wouldn't). They're direct to the point of charming. "Mario Stomps the Goombas." "Bowser Guards Princess Toadstool." "Link Begrudgingly Grinds for Rupees Just So He Can Afford the Stupid Red Ring."
  • They're violent. OK, Zelda and Punch-Out already have their violent moments, but the Mario ones... wow. Mario stomping on three (presumably innocent) Goombas? Kicking a Hammer Brother right in the chin? Bowser thrashing Peach around? Mario "hurling" a fireball?
    You'd be hard pressed to find any Mario merchandise this interpretive ever again.
  • The incredibly terrible "graphics" on the boxes. Very '80s, yes, but not even good '80s. But I love that.
So, chin up. You could have some shiny figurine of the Mario cast, or something actually badass. Or Mario getting goosed by a Blooper.

Re: Mario Figurine Alternatives From the Past

I came up 70 coins short but it doesn't matter because I would have passed on the figurine for the calendar anyways.

You must not be playing the system right, I have 960 right now, if you add in the 800 I spent on Zelda posters I've gotten 1760 total. I still have surveys backlogged to add to start coining up for the next year.
They only have crappy prizes though. Why can't we have game soundtracks like Japan =/?

Re: Mario Figurine Alternatives From the Past

Tails: https://club.nintendo.com/

Here's my history list. I've gotten rid of games marked "sold", so don't think my house is overflowing with junk =P. Also, a lot of these (GBA, Gamecube + early DS) codes were put in before Club Nintendo was put in place in America, Nintendo gave me exactly 0 points for all of it when they brought it here ='(.

Re: Mario Figurine Alternatives From the Past

Okay so I finished up my surveys and now have 290 coins, I think maybe Canadians have a different set of prizes than the U.S., because our prizes mostly suck:
Wii-mote holder -retarded
Various greeting cards sets -retarded
A few posters -350 coins for a couple pieces of paper? retarded
Various cases for cards/ds's/ds'games -retarded
Game and watch collections -would play them for 5 minutes tops so retarded

The only things I would want would be the playing cards and the hanafuda cards, and I didn't see any figures any where.

---------- Post added at 07:57 PM ---------- Previous post was at 07:54 PM ----------

Oh and Grill off with ultra hand for the wii -ultra retarded.

Re: Mario Figurine Alternatives From the Past

True, but a complaint can score you some free stuff.
Look at that girl with the DS, she got it because she said it was too expensive.

Ha, whatever, they'd probably reply that creating an English label for those CDs would be too much trouble, lol.

Re: Mario Figurine Alternatives From the Past

It's still worth a shot.
I'd do it, but if you don't want to, you don't have to.

It would rock to get free stuff.

Re: Mario Figurine Alternatives From the Past

I won't, just because I know I won't get it, and I can spit in Nintendo's face either by just downloading it for free or by recording it directly off my Wii myself.

You know, piracy is wrong and illegal and stuff...
And I can pass judgment on the topic of piracy...
Because everyone knows I am totally clear of that one...

Here's my stance...

If a company makes no effort to make a product available for sale here, and the only ways for me to get it is to pay for an overpriced import or to download it, I think I would rather teach them a lesson and get it free. I would be totally willing to pay for it if it was available, and if it ever ends up for sale I will get it, However, this isn't possible, and if the company won't make many any effort to make it available from an official source, then I'm not going to make any effort to try and get it from them.

In this case, this soundtrack is a prize for Club Nintendo in Japan. It is not for sale. Therefore Nintendo loses 0 profit from me getting it.

Alternatively I could record the songs off of my console, which is better any because I can get an uncompressed .wav file out of it rather than a crappy .mp3 file.
If you're going to tell me that I can't record the sound output from my machine with my equipment, I honestly won't care and will happily continue doing it =D.

Re: Mario Figurine Alternatives From the Past

If you bought Mario Galaxy than you should be allowed to do whatever you want with that disc and any of the files it contains if it is for personal use, including extracting the music on it to your mp3 player or what not.

Re: Mario Figurine Alternatives From the Past

I know, that post I made was sarcastic.
I have the same stance with games. If I buy a PSP game, I should be able to make a backup of the files on the disc and use those files to play the game without the disk, in that case I own the disk, I own the disk, I own the files, I own the files, I can use them at my discretion.

If there is zero profit lost it shouldn't be an issue.
The CD isn't for sale here, or there for that matter.
Nintendo makes zero profit off the CD from anyone.
Nintendo loses no profit when you download it.
No problem.


If a game is unavailable in the county you live in, then the company cannot lose profit from you downloading it, because they'd never make profit from the game on people of that county anyway.

Now that I think of it, it is the same thing as buying a CD, then putting it on your computer to listen to it.

My biggest issue with PSP Go is that the disks I got are useless.
