Default Eshop Purchases BIG Problem!

So back in 2012 i had my frist 3DS and had many eshop purchases on my account.I have recently bought another 3DS console.I did my sign in for eshop and guess what?
my Eshop purchases were not there.Of course,my frist move was to consult google for the answers.The only info i could find is to do a system transfer,which i cant do because my frist 3ds is long gone (i recently moved house,no hope of finding it )
So next i contacted customer support to ask them for a solution,and this is what their reply was;

I am sorry to inform you, but no.
They are tied to the system, not account, and if you have a nnid, they are become tied to the account, but cannot be transformed to another machine without a system transfer.
i was told once that nintendo can transfer them for a fee, and it was said by a nintendo uk representative,
so try your luck with them.
other wise....go buy 'em again.

Should've done your research before you got rid of your old 3DS..
