DONKEY KONG – Super Mario Characters Collection – RARE JAPAN ONLY RELEASE by Banpresto
DONKEY KONG: Not much information is available for this particular version of DONKEY KONG by Banpresto, but what we do know is that it was intended as a “Prize Release” in Japan only. And being double factory bagged for retail presentation (it’s a terrible retail presentation for sure), you can barely see the solid vinyl figure inside which makes for an even more difficult visual inspection. In case you’re wondering, NO, you can’t open the retail packaging to take a peek and then get it back together again…it’s just not going to look right. Believe me, I pondered the idea quite a lot.
With this being said, the figure looks mint inside the packaging, so all is good in the quality department. As for value, it’s hard to say really, not many of these floating around to base a good idea off of. What I can say, is that legitimate JAPAN ONLY versions like this aren’t cheaply had, so be prepared to pay up a bit to get one. But being such an iconic character, DONKEY KONG in about any form is always cool to own. Maybe this rarer version fits in your collection, and maybe you want a DONKEY KONG collectible not many people have? Time will tell I guess.
