High-end collectible makers First 4 Figures is introducing a new line of figures based on the Banjo-Kazooie series, and first up is the bear and bird themselves, together on one statue. The base is a jiggy (short for jigsaw piece,) and a large piece of plastic is holding up the titular characters in flight pose. Kazooie is sticking out of Banjo’s backpack and doing the hard work of keeping a bear in the air.
This statue is available for pre-order now and comes in two editions: exclusive, and regular. The difference between the two is in their bases; the standard edition’s base is a big yellow jiggy, and the exclusive edition has a gold colored chrome plated jiggy, along with a smaller jiggy and a musical note, both diecast & chrome plated as well. Purchasing the exclusive edition within the first twenty-four hours will also net you some bonus items, including a holographic sticker. Pre-orders from First 4 Figures will also come with a Sea of Thieves DLC code for the “bear and bird figurehead” in-game item.
These Banjo-Kazooie statues are quite large, measuring 20” x 18” x 16” and weigh nearly twelve pounds. You’re going to need a sturdy shelf for this collector’s item. Pre-orders are now open at First 4 Figures, and both statues are priced at $429.99. If you plan on picking one of these up, make sure to read their FAQ first so you don’t miss out. The reservation period is open now until Tuesday, July 10, when they’ll be opening up a second round of pre-ordering. You can also visit their blog and enter to win one of these statues.
Banjo-Kazooie is not the only license First 4 Figures picked up from Rare; they also got the license for Conker, of Conker’s Bad Fur Day and Diddy Kong Racing fame.
