Announced back in July, the pin set Club Nintendo is giving free to its platinum members this year was met with the usual round of griping and complaining. One of our readers just received his and, you know, it's actually a pretty decent gift.

For starters, the display box is pretty big, as reader Jon A. notes by using his Wiimote to note its scale. It's made up of six rectangular boxes that can be rotated to create one of three different images. You get 25 pins in all, and the case looks like one of those Advent calendars with the trap doors that reveal a surprise.

So, good job, Nintendo. But your gold member reward still sucks.
