Banjo-Kazooie Toy Fair 2000 Toysite Prototype Figure
North America (USA and Canada)
Game System Association:
This prototype figure was shown off in the Toy Fair in 2000, along with several other Nintendo prototype figures in the Nintendo line, like a Metal Mario, a Fox McCloud from Starfox, and Donkey Kong 64 figures. Toysite was responsible for several of the later BD&A Mario plushes that did release in 1999. This figure line was canceled when Toysite was shut down (BD&A no longer funded the branch), and the prototypes were sold on ebay in 2001. This was sold on ebay by a former employee. Apart from the figure being one-of-a-kind due to it being a prototype, it is very rare to see a painted prototype at all. The exquisite detail really brings this beloved character duo to life, and it's a true shame the line was never produced. It is a very fragile figure, as it was not meant to be handled or really even produced, so you'll notice it has cheaper paints on it and some of the design had yet to be finalized, like the backpack. This is for display only and not for handling. The paint around the legs may look like it is peeling in the photos, but this is just excess paint that, again, was used to show the prototype painted. The joints were not finalized, so I imagine improper handling could lead to parts falling off or becoming damaged. There was no packaging for the figure. No card backings had been produced for this new line. The feature this figure was to have was a push button on the backpack that flapped Kaoozie's wings. It still works on this figure.
