    Thought I'd give an updated solution for this, having just unlocked it on Rare Replay

    This guide will focus on the quickest way to unlock the achievement, there's many Stop N Swap items out there. For more info and a full guide check out

    All credit goes to the author Sakura Yule without his guide I couldn't have made this one.

    I've been told you need to have a Banjo Kazooie Nuts and Bolts saved game before the eggs will appear in the Banjo Kazzoie XBLA version, so make sure you do before continuing

    To begin with load Banjo-Kazooie and head into Treasure Trove Cove.

    Once in the cove head to the sandcastle, with the castle behind you look out to sea.
    You should see a box with an extra life floating out in the water near a cave.
    Swim out to that cave and head on in.

    Once inside head around the mountain to the spring pad, use to jump up and then climb/fly your way around the mountain to the top.

    At the top you'll see a big egg, grab it and Banjo will talk about unlocking something in Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts

    Now load Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts

    Start a single player game and when it loads you should see a cut-scene.
    Head to the location shown in the cut scene and grab the box.

    Bring the box back to Mumbo and drop it on his delivery pad.
    Speak to him and the achievement unlocks.

    I made this video to help explain it all.

    Do Not Use The Sandcastle Cheats!
    In Banjo-Kazooie you can enter cheats in the sandcastle to find the Stop N Swap items, it turns off saving so you can't actually trigger the items in Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts

    Any questions, just ask.

    lightsup55Short answer: No.

    These are the only 2 achievements I had to unlock while on the way toward getting the egg in Banjo-Kazooie:
    Banjo-KazooieGet JiggyThe Get Jiggy achievement in Banjo-Kazooie worth 10 pointsIt doesn't matter which two, just successfully collect any two Jiggies.

    Banjo-KazooieMumbo JumboThe Mumbo Jumbo achievement in Banjo-Kazooie worth 11 pointsGet yourself transformed by Mumbo Jumbo for the first time. Now that's magic!

    No other achievements will need to be unlocked to get to the start of Treasure Trove Cove to collect the special egg.

    Gacys ClownHow do you get to the boathouse location? Everywhere I go there are green ramps I can't go up, blocking the path.

    Taken from: -

    You need the Xbox Arcade version of Banjo-Kazoooie. The crates do not appear in this game unless you have unlocked the eggs or ice key from the arcade game. Here are the locations of the items in the arcade game:

    Purple Egg: Treasure Trove Cove
    Ice Key: Freezeezy Peak
    Blue Egg: Gobi's Valley
    Light Blue Egg: Mad Monster Mansion (cellar)
    Green Egg: Mad Monster Mansion (on top of Loggo/toilet)
    Red Egg: Rusty Bucket Bay
    Yellow Egg: Click Clock Wood

    You will hear a sound if you found it.

    After you found the item and start up Nuts and Bolts. The game will show you where they are. You only need one to get the achievement.
