    But I can't find Windcharger and Cliffjumper. Are they supposed to be out on retail as well or have they being discontinued already? I am really happy to see them because I missed out on the minibots reissue. Thanks.

    Funny you should post this. I went to Hot Topic today to buy a Bumblebee keychain as a gift for someone. They only had Bumblebee and Brawn. I didn't buy it cause they wanted $6.99 each. I'm sorry, but that is too much for a keychain...

    On a side note, he did look smaller than the previous keychain release. Did they downsize the mold or am I imagining things?

    Yeah they are expensive but it's hard to find the G1 minibots at good price and I don't want to pay Ebay price for them or the reissue. So even $7 each is ok deal imo.

    I ventured into my local Hot Topic while my wife & son were in line for Santa. Sadly, they had none. I wanted the Cliffjumper key chain. Aye, that is too much but I still wanted him since he was my first minibot as a kid and it is time for a new key chain anyway.

    These seem rather expensive. I ordered the full set back in October (just to get Bumblebee for my wife, she was dissappointed that titanium Bee didn't transform and she loves the VW's) from a seller in japan for $14 including shipping.

    I always find myself at Hot Topic's door, then too afraid to go in because...well...it's EMO.

    7 bucks is a little steep, but you have nothing to worry about, the employees don't bite. And it's possible they haven't been released yet, like classic Ramjet.:cry

    It's not the employees I worry about. Or the people in there for that matter. Most of them are cool.

    It's just the fear of someone seeing me walk in there...

    I bought them and cut the little keychain loops off them.
    My keys would beat the hell out of them anyway

    Yeah, I saw two Brawn's today but balked at the $6.99 price tag.
