    Hi I'm thinking of using the BiS matrix on my generation Galvatron. I know the mold comes from the 2002 matrix mold. Any suggestion on what kind of chain to use for this item and where I can buy it? I'm thinking of a short keychain type chain where I can have to hook clips to secure the matrix. Any info for where I can get such an item would be appreciated.

    I went to Michael's and bought a chain for mine the other day. I did have to take some pliers and cut the length down to size, but it works for what I want it to. I was out maybe $4 or so?

    I bought some crappy fifty cent necklace in a gumball machine for mine. Cut the chain down to what I needed and used some jewelry rings that I had from making gun slings for my Joes. Less than a dollar baby :D

    Cheap, but they don't get the chain effect. If you're happy with it, then go with it :)

    When you walk in the store, go to the right where the necklaces and beads are. There's a variety of things there :)
