    I got my MP-5 today from an ebay seller and as a bonus he threw in a takara G1 keychain. Blind boxed, so I opened it and found a black bumblebee. Anyone know anything aboot this?

    Not much to tell. Takara blind packed the Fun-4-All key chains from a few years ago in Japan. If I recall there were 8 different ones...Bumblebee, Cliffjumper, Brawn, Windcharger, and black repaints of all four.

    They're not especially valuable, as the black ones are less desirable and the regular ones are available in abundance. Probably worth about $5 or so.

    I'm curious what seller you bought from, the one I bought from is supposedly sending a bonus figure since it took so long to get them over from Japan. I should have mine this week.

    The Black TF keychains were referred to as "Chase" another term for a somewhat rare Transformer. I have all four and they look good next to Black G1 Convoy. :D

    Ebay:
    Yeah, not much value attached to them now... I paid $100 for the set of eight when they first came out. D'oh!

    I Think I paid $20 for my black bumblebee when they came out, I still love that and think it was worth what I paid.
