I was playing Christmas NiGHTS the other day and played for about maybe 2 hours. I got a few presents and one of them was the NiGHTS Goods gift, which basically is a slideshow of different NiGHTS merchandise like T-Shirts, hats, posters, I think even a clock too.

Does anybody know if these items were released anywhere, were they promotional items for E3, or if they were just photoshopped, does anyone even have these items? If you don't remember/don't know what I'm talking about, turn on your Saturn and play your copy of Christmas NiGHTS, if you have a copy, check your presents, the NiGHTS Goods present has a Pian icon, or play your ROM, whatever. :P

I would provide screenshots, but I can't find any. If I do find any I'll post 'em later.

Off the top of my head:

The plushies were promos in Sega's UFO (claw) machines; they appear on eBay from time to time. The awesome horned hat was a promo thing at a gaming event (E3?), and TRiPPY managed to get one. If anyone knows anything about that NiGHTS bed, I want to know!

Thanks, I didn't expect anyone to know everything about the items. I want that bed too. :P

Correct on the plushies. I have many of them in my collection. There were two plush sets released in Japan in UFO catchers. They consist of the following:

Original set

NiGHTS
NiGHTS (arms up)
Reala
Claris
Elliot
Nightopian

Christmas set

Christmas NiGHTS
Christmas Nightopian

I am unsure if any further plush were released in the Christmas NiGHTS range, I have never seen any others for sale outside Christmas NiGHTS and Christmas Nightopian. The tags suggest this is true, but did they necessarily make it outside the prototype stage?

Here's a photo of all the plush I own...

Oh man, I'd love to have one of those plushies but they're super rare and I bet they're super expensive too.

The prices for them vary wildly depending on which one you're after and if people happen to see them. Often these plush go below the estimates I've suggested as people simply do not often search for them as they so rarely come up on Ebay. You are right though... Even when at a low price point, the prices in general are quite eye-wateringly expensive!

NiGHTS - $250-300
NiGHTS (arms up) - $300-350
Reala - $200-250 (I sold a Reala at $250 earlier this year, values seem to have recovered)
Claris - $60-80
Elliot - $60-80
Nightopian - $20 (has been extensively faked)

I have sold Claris for $100 on her own before, but that was a stroke of luck from a buyer searching for one to accompany his Elliot. You are much more likely to find them sold for $100-120 a pair, on average.

Christmas NiGHTS/Christmas Nightopian are hard to appraise as I've not actually seen them for sale on Ebay... Christmas NiGHTS is so sought after that it's pretty much name your price. I'd give an initial value of $300-350 to match the arms up NiGHTS, but $500 wouldn't surprise me in the slightest. Christmas Nightopian is the more unusual and much rarer plush but also suffers from not being as popular, so won't fetch as much as NiGHTS.

Finally... Admittedly not something that would have been on Christmas NiGHTS, but that's a NiGHTS chao plush from the Sonic Adventure 1 plush set in the top right. Last one I saw sell that wasn't mine was 3 years ago on Animemate for $600. I got mine from a Japanese auction site a month ago and even on there, where Sega merch goes much cheaper than Ebay, it was $215... Hate to think how much it would be on Ebay these days! <_<

There's an image in another thread of Christmas Claris and Elliot, but the general concensus is that they were just prototypes. It's a shame, really. They complete the collection. :)

Ugh, it's crazy how these plushies are so darn expensive. I'm ashamed to say I have none of them! I just don't have the money to spend $300+ on a plushie. But they're so awesome/cute/amazing! :(

I'm just waiting for the day some person on eBay lists one of these babies for dirt cheap without knowing the true value, cause that's pretty much the only way I'd be getting one anytime soon.
