Well since it is in Grunty's Lair in a place we've been to before in Banjo-Kazooie, wouldn't you find that quite ridiculous?

I wish people would stop yelling out "IT'S FAKE!" without providing any evidence. By evidence, I don't mean, "It looks photshopped so it must be fake!" I don't think it's real either, but I'm not gonna throw away the idea without proper evidence first.

i'm not ruling anthing out since we havn't found the RSA yet (well some of us) but at the same time it doesn't look very convincing at all

I'm going to say, this is either EXTREMELY well edited (with the aid of an image hack in the game perhaps), or this origionally was the RSA, but was removed at one point in development. Maybe there was a certain point in the game where you were able to break the rocks in Grunty's Lair? Maybe there is still a tiny bit of code left over for the rocks breaking?

Yes there is. Remember that little concave opening where the portrait of Clanker's Cavern was? The shot could have been taken from there. In fact, judging by how dark the room appears, I suspect it may even have been shopped by that same dude on the French site that had all these images of Banjo in areas of Click Clock that had been very badly edited. I guess we're getting a little desperate looking for the answer, but I can almost assure you that this is not it.

if you stand on the platform where the clanker picture is, you'll be in the opposite angle, theres only one explanation.

the room was hacked to have an invisable platform, ive done that a million times, it would work perfectly, then photoshoped afterwards.

As Greatman said, it's too perfect to be fake...
There's no loopholes we can see, it's even tinted green like the game!

I've tried to brighten it up, as most image editors try to darken pics to hide mistakes, and I can't see any:

Very nice Banjo-Forty! And with that, more speculation comes about. Notice the tunnel above the ramp--that should lead to the area with the waterfall--is blocked.

EDIT: Just noticed something else too. There's a boulder that looks a bit similar to those blocking the area in the Entrance just beneath Grunty's face.

We already knew there was a rock on the Grunty face Hylian, but keen eye on the next door blocked!

Not what he meant. He's talking about the boulders in the VERY bottom right of the picture, not the one on her face.

Those would be the same rocks from the entrance wouldn't they? I mean its from the tunnel in the entrance lair. So when you moved the rocks, they'd be up there right?

I photoshopped the "Riddiculously secret area" so it almost looks like BK Graphics...There are some things to notice about this picture...

http://i127.photobucket.com/albums/p...hopproject.jpg

1. The Rock In Grunty's Eye...
2. The Bridge to the Click Clock Wood's Picture area is Broken...
3. There's a rock in the doorway to that room...
4. The Light coming from above the Grunty Face, once a green color, is now black...
5. There is a Rock under the picture.
6. IT LOOKS LIKE THERE'S A ROCK BLOCKING THE ENTRANCE TO THE MAIN GRUNTY'S LAIR AREA. At the right edge of the picture, and up a little.
7. Lining the Grunty Picture, is just a RAMP. No Stairs...When Stairs originally lined said picture...
&
8. The black rocks around the bottom of the Ramp Looks alot moldier, alot more Black than in BK.
9. No shadow under the bridge...

Now, if you don't believe me, take a look at this photo i snatched thanks to PJ64. It was the original Room In BK.

I'm starting to believe this guy...

Wait. So how did you get that exact same camera angle?
