Gruntilda and Mumbo Jumbo didn’t make the initial cut
The collectible company Youtooz occasionally leans into video game characters over real-life personalities, and later this month, it’s coming out with a trio of figures based on Banjo-Kazooie.
There’s Banjo and Kazooie looking all cute, Tooty playing piccolo, and Bottles minus his iconic eyewear. The figures will cost $30 each when orders open on February 26, 2021, and they’re shipping in June.
They’re on the smaller side at heights of 4.5″, 3.7″, and 3.5″, respectively.
I can’t think about Tooty without picturing the “game-over” scene (that played when you exited the game) where she’s turned into a monstrous green-skinned version of herself by Gruntilda. As for dear old Bottles, I can’t see him without dwelling on his untimely demise in Banjo-Tooie. He had a family!
For me, the duo is the best figure of the group, though I’d like to see Mumbo or Kunglo in this style.
