@ just recently bumped an old thread called "The Worst Banjo-Kazooie Guide" and I found something interesting.

This scan shows a rendering of Mumbo Jumbo.
Here is a close-up of him.

This render of Mumbo Jumbo is the same one seen on the front of box, but what's different is that his left arm isn't cut off.
Never mind, I think it is cut off. I was probably looking at it wrong.

Anyways, since this thread is all about renders, I wanted to point out these old Jinjo and King Jingaling renders. The European/PAL covers have him and the Jinjos covered up with text, but the USA cover is a lot clearer (and they have more contrast).

King Jinagling and Sad Jinjo

I know this sounds silly, but I never actually looked at the spines for "Banjo-Kazooie", so I decided to take a quick look, and I found a Gruntilda render I've never seen before along with some level backgrounds.

I don't think I've seen that Mumbo Jumbo render either. It's hard to tell what pose he's making.
I don't think I've seen those crystals (in the Freezeezy Peak render) before either, because they're not in these other two promo images with snow in them.

I know the render with the crystals in them are from Freezeezy Peak because the plants match.

Edit: Boy, I'm just on a render kick right now aren't I? I've never seen the "Diddy Kong Racing" spines either.

I checked "Super Mario Wiki' and found this render with Banjo in it.
Diddy Kong Racing Japan
I headed over to "DK Vine" and found this render I've never seen before. Not even "Super Mario Wiki" has it.

Sorry for this huge post, but this kind of stuff fascinates me. I used to go on "DK Vine" all the time when I was younger and look at all of the old 3D renders. Shame "The Rare Witch Project" deleted its Wiki, I still have some images from when it was still running.

To be fair, I didn't bump an old thread. I made that thread a week and a half ago.

Oops, sorry! For some reason I read the date as 2016 instead of 2018! Silly me!

I found high quality scans of some of these logos:

Banjo-Kazooie with the N64 logo

Banjo pointing off screen in a murky green swamp

Mumbo doing Shaman magic in front of BK

Full body images of Banjo-Tooie render

This is an edit, but the Nuts & Bolts gift-wrapping Jinjos are from several smaller renders

This one is also an edit (so probably not a rare render) but it's of the BK box art without characters

High definition image of Banjo standing on a beanstalk

This one is a restoration edit but it's a Banjo-Tooie render of Mumbo hogging the spotlight from BK

This one is a unique render of BK hanging out with the Keebler elves
