Banjo-Kazooie by ToodlesTeam Banjo-Kazooie by ToodlesTeam

Here it is, folks. The pièce de résistance, my magnum opus: Banjo-Kazooie! By far the most challenging model I've yet attempted. Most of the other models I've made this year were done, at least in part, to test materials and techniques for the bear and bird, and they themselves took about three months to create. Banjo alone is 9” tall, but with Kazooie and her colorful plumage on his back, the bear and bird together stand just about 15” tall. It was quite the undertaking, but I think I managed to do my favorite video game duo justice!

I chose to do the Nuts & Bolts interpretation of the characters mainly because I thought they would make for a more impressive looking model.  Their patchwork design seemed like it would translate better to the materials I use.  And, to be honest, I do have a soft spot in my heart for Nuts & Bolts.  I know most folks prefer their N64 designs, but there's no vehicles here, so let's assume the bear and bird are about to embark on another platforming adventure. ;)

Thanks!  Some of my models come together relatively quickly, but the bear and bird here took MUCH longer than any other model I've done.  Tons of hours.  But I think it was worth the time spent!

Thanks for your interest, but I'm afraid the bear and bird are not for sale.

I may not be the biggest fan of Banjo's blocky redesign in Nuts & Bolts, but you did a great job at remaking it! That is really neat!

This is magnificent!! And while I prefer the original B-K character model, I agree with you, this one makes for a much more impressive piece, every little detail is superbly done. I love it.

Thanks!  I thought about doing a hybrid, using the N64 designs with Nuts & Bolts style details. But I decided I really just wanted to do them up the way they actually look in-game.  Perhaps I'll do another model of the N64 versions of the bear and bird at some point!

Super cool!  They look like they hopped right out of Nuts and Bolts.

I have no immediate plans, but Dragon Kazooie would be pretty awesome!  There are enough characters I like from the Banjo-Kazooie series that I'm sure I'll return to it eventually, but for now I'm ready to move on to something else.
