    I don't believe this has been posted before. I just got back from Hot Topic and they had some of the reissue keychains. They only had Brawn and Bumblebee to choose from. I already had the Bumblebee one from a few years ago, so I only got Brawn. The packaging this time is pretty generic. It has the Heroes of Cybertron logo and does not mention the character name anywhere on the front. On the back it doesn't have the tech spec either like the old ones. It just shows pictures of all 4 keychains. The price is $6.99 each. Here are some pics I took. My batteries are dead on my good camera so they are from my cell phone.

    Neat! I still need to get the Brawn and Windcharger ones. Might even use the Brawn figure to replace the vintage one on my shelf (hes seen better days).

    Ditto. And while it's cool that these will be available for those who missed them the first time, I still like the more traditional card back of the first release.

    Well, not to nit pick, But it was mentioned by me a couple of days ago in the Oregon sightings thread. But Still, at least these are getting noticed. And you do have pics to go with it, so I can't complain too much.

    Will these be the same quality as those original keychains, I got them and the plastic was pretty cheap, and they were all rather loose, Cliffjumper can't even stand...

    I want these for one reason: Christmas Orniments! :) 

    I dread the mall this time of year but it may be worth a trip to have them on my tree.

    Cool. My Windcharger keychain is beat to hell. Maybe I'll replace him.

    If you have MyClone they work even better as ornaments! Take the head off, wrap a hook around the neck. Put the head back on and voila! :D

    It would be nice if the local Hot Topic got these in but they still haven't even gotten the TF shirts yet.

    Woah! I thought I was the only one who did that!

    I don't like it because Galvatron's legs keep falling off, though.

    Sweet! I never knew that they had Transformers keychains! I'll have to find the nearest Hot Topic store and see what they have... for sure, I'll have to get Brawn... he's my second favorite Autobot, the first being Optimus Prime.
