I never quite understood keychain culture. I wasn't one of those kids in school with a jingling collection of pop culture references dangling from my backpack. I wasn't one of those kids who bought a keychain for each of my friends at every vacation gift shop. Even now, my keys are a utilitarian jumble of metal with nothing decorative whatsoever. That's why I find it so interesting that in the past few years I've been compelled to buy so many keychains. The simple reason is that a lot of my favorite collectibles release miniature versions in this novelty format. Mini Mez-Itz, Lego Flashlights, Fast-food premiums, and of course Funko's Pocket Pops have all weaseled their way into my home. I usually have a hesitation about altering a collectible from its original form (some lofty notion about preserving the integrity of the hobby), but for some reason I have no qualms at all about de-keychaining these guys. Let's check out this de-chained Pocket Pop Harley below!
The keychain pieces that come attached to these Pocket Pops are just screwed into the top of the head with a long eyelet screw. You can't have them stand up with the keychain apparatus still attached, so all of these pictures are taken after its removal.
Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!
Here she is with the standard release Suicide Squad Harley Quinn Pop.
And with the Comic Version Pocket Pop.
And finally with the Mystery Mini added in.
