Here at Brick Fanatics we like to think we’re above being attracted by something just because it’s shiny and new, but it turns out that we are not, and there’s something quite appealing about the recent range of LEGO brick keychains that have popped up in LEGO stores of late. These include (but aren’t limited to) metallic green, metallic silver, iridescent/pearl white and iridescent/pearl light blue.
They are each just the same as any previous LEGO brick keychain for a) otherwise being regular LEGO bricks in size, construct and compatibility and b) being connected to the chain via a longish screw inserted into their top.
It’s also not the first time that the LEGO Group has released metallic LEGO brick keychains, but it does seem to be the first time we also have some iridescent ones to make the excuse of finding some more keys in the house that absolutely need a keychain.
There’s not much we need to say in review of these keychains – they are shiny, they are new, and they really do look nice in person. Importantly for those of us who live the true LEGO VIP life, the metallic silver keychain is nothing like* the VIP-exclusive metallic silver keychain previously available for a select number of VIP points at the VIP Reward Centre.
*Okay, it is quite similar in appearance to a regular person, but a LEGO fan can see that the VIP one remains bigger, flatter, non-compatible with LEGO bricks and made of metal.
One or two of these keychains were provided for review by the LEGO Group. The others were purchased by us on impulse. Purchase your LEGO keychains on impulse too via one of our affiliate links, as it directly supports the work that we do, which includes buying keychains…
- As one half of Tiro Media Ltd, I mix a passion for print and digital media production with a deep love of LEGO and can often be found on these pages eulogising about LEGO Batman, digging deeper into the LEGO Group’s inner workings, or just complaining about the price of the latest LEGO Star Wars set. Make a great impression when you meet me in person by praising EXO-FORCE as the greatest LEGO theme of all time. Follow me on Twitter @RobPaton or drop me an email at [email protected].
