I found some interesting news today. My apologize if this has been posted before.

www.ncsx.com had following to announce:
02-10-04 Full Metal Alchemist Merchandising
Bandai and Square Enix have announced a new collection of products based on the recent Full Metal Alchemist game and animation. While the fanbase for the fledgling franchise may be somewhat spotty, the two conglomerates are forging ahead with merchandising anyways. The two metal plate keyring/straps are expected to come in at approximately US$30 while the card carrying case should be about $39. The capsule toys appear in-line with other gashapon at approximately US$16 for a full set of six. Preorders are welcome on the main site.

pictures are up at the site(down bottom) and they ship (almost) all over the world ^_^

woah. If only they weren't so expensive... I'd love to have a metal plate keyring, even if it were useless to me, as I never carry around keys XP

Okay, maybe I'm totally off my rocker here, but I could *swear* I saw both that keyring holder and cel phone strap back last July, when I went to Anime Expo. And for a decent bit cheaper, too. I didn't buy either one-- I went for the horribly cute little Ed keychain instead, which they don't have on that site; but I distinctly remember contemplating which one I was going to get for the better part of twenty minutes. (this was back when I'd read two-- just TWO-- chapters of the manga. I got hooked *very* quickly.)
So is this just a re-release of those items in connection with the release of the game? Or am I just remembering things that didn't exist? o.O
