Cool (but what's with that front bumper?):

I keep seeing these come up on eBay and I, too, wonder why the front bumper is so big. I wonder if it can be removed (i.e. - broken off?)

That is pretty neat. I wonder if that bumper is a generic one somehow.

I just happen to know the story behind that front bumper.
The keychain looks very similar to Amy Turner's "Healium"
Sprite which was used as a model for the Johnny Lightning series of LBCs a couple years back.
Amy's Sprite was the Bugeye used for all the dimensions and having seen her car in person, I noticed a MKII Sprite rear bumper on the front of her Bugeye. It fit, she did not know it was the wrong bumper (at the time).
So take another look at that keychain bumper and take a look at a MKII + Sprite rear bumper.
Now you know the story.
