I found this site that has quite a few DKC and DK64 related things (mostly DKC):

There are some pretty cool things over there.
Here's also another site and some pics (this site has more things):

I remember having a bunch of DK toys when I was younger: DK 64 puzzles, Diddy kong racing characters+ karts and planes. There was even some objects that the plane could shoot! Tough I'm not sure about that. Maybe it was one of my mario kart toys too. Right now I have the club Nintendo posters and the DK stylus for DS. I had a old diddy kong toy from Burger king too . :lol: Sad that when I was younger I destroyed most of them. Why does kids like breaking their toys, WHY??

I never liked breaking my toys! D: I loved them and played with them, and I'd preferred them in one piece over broken to bits! I'd end up sad when I'd find My Little Ponies with their hair cut on a flea market. :c

Speaking of DKC merchandise I'm getting a Captain Skurvy figure soon *dances*

Destroyed little rainbow ponies must be an horrible sight! In fact NOW i'm sad that I destroyed most of my toys. I'm pretty sure I would liked my diddy kong toys much more now than when I was 6! :(

You would have hated to see me as a kid, I not only smashed up some of my toys I froze them in a freezer, threw them over windows, cut bits of plastic or hair off with a pair of scissors, and even melted them in a mircowave. (poor Linus I melted him with a caramel candy too!) yeah I was like Sid from Toy Story. :twisted:

I suppose it was caramel candy with some "Peanuts" mixed in (it could've used a bit of Peppermint Patty).

Around July, I got this DK plush from a cheap shop! :)

I think it's the same type that was in the claw machines I mentioned a few years ago here. I also have a bag with DK chilling on the Nintendo logo with Zingers buzzing about. Other than that, I have some Mario plushies, but that's pretty much it.

Just remembered: I also have the Nintendo edition of Monopoly. ( Does it count as a DK merchandise?)
(by the way cool plush DKCplayer!)

I don't believe I've mentioned here that some time ago this year, I acquired the Donkey Kong Country: Exposed VHS tape... ;)

It was in a local pawn shop for $1.50, and the owner offered to sell if for $1 thinking it was worth nothing. I silently paid for it and left (with much excitement and nostalgia). Thanks to my mother for actually spotting the videotape on a shelf.

EDIT: If you must see pics of it, just ask.

I know it's pure gold. That's why I did open it, put it on my iPod, and am currently listening to it. :P
It wasn't supposed to come until tomorrow, so you can imagine my surprise when I got the mail today. $39.99 on eBay... not too bad. And I mean, come on, it was just the shrinkwrapping... I'd rather get to the music and experience the fidelity of CD-quality audio then go download some audio rip from a ROM. If only I had some Beats Pro by Dr. Dre, then we'd be talking.

But wow, what a treat. This game was such a huge part of my life, and a big reason for that was the music. You really find yourself back in time playing the game when you're listening to a certain track (Sub-Map Shuffle in K3 on a cold, stormy night... ooh!) Anyway, I've got about ten tracks left to listen to. I'm giving my ears a break, as I've already had tinnitus for about a year. I'd like to start collecting more video game soundtracks. The only other one I have is the Nuts & Bolts soundtrack, but I also have some movie soundtracks and the like. I'm a pretty big CD guy, I've got like 45 or 50 right now.

Gonna go listen to the rest!

Tiptup Jr. That's awesomeness!

I'll have to post some pictures later, but I have the original box for my SNES (with all of the original packaging), which was the DKC edition. I also have a bitch-ass poster that came with it that has a big DK at the top.

My friend used to own a DKC2 soundtrack. It was amazing, it was what we always listened to when I went over. That was when I wasn't a big DKC fan, I just thought the music was great. After I found out it was from DKC, I bought the game. I think he through it out. I might go over soon so I guess I will take a picture if it is there.

See if you can discreetly rip it to a lossless format and put it on a flash drive. :P

Ill see first m'kay (MR. MACKEY RULES!). Yeah, that was a random thought. I will probably go over tommorow, so ill give you all an update after.

EDIT: If I can not find it, don't be dissapointed. It was a long time ago so I might not find it. I think it was his older brothers so it is either gone, with his brother or still there.

I finally got around to taking a picture of my SNES box!
By the way, the price tag says 147.95 from K-Mart.

Hey, that's pretty cool. I'll never forget receiving the Jungle Green N64 bundle for my sixth birthday... still one of the best presents I've ever gotten! (the box is long gone, though.) I wish they would do a Donkey Kong bundle again. As much as I hate "Returns" it would've been cool if it came out with a banana yellow Wii, or at least a banana yellow case.

I also have the badass poster that came with it.

This isn't mine, but I found a picture of the same one.

The back side of the poster tells you how to hook up the Super Nintendo.
