    Only used for the VIP Keychain in 2011 (and possibly a pen? See comments)

      I had to get it on Ebay when they first came out; they've only gotten more expensive :(

      This makes me wonder about the pieces from this pen. I have what's left of it (mainly the beads) and I believe they're a chrome red plating since they aren't totally chrome red (inside is a white-ish plastic). Would they classify as this or just a standard coating?

      Could be! I don't usually consider pen parts, since they're made by a third party for Lego, and the colors are usually milkier or unmatching entirely. But they may have fixed that in recent years for all I know.

      Ah, well I may have a precursor to this keychain then! I assume TLG mixed the color and had it profuced by a third party, I had always thought TLG produced pens and minor gear in house.

      The price hasn't gone up too much, but then, I paid $20 for it twice because the first seller disappeared after invoicing me.

      I'll go out on a limb and say this is the thing LEGO has botched the worst over the years. I don't think they've ever come up with anything else as offensive as "our VIP department decided to dismiss ALL of our biggest fans as resellers, even after the departments that actually know who the fans are told them that's a terrible idea". Usually when they make a mistake, it's something you can understand at some level, but the VIP program team really screwed this up every step of the way.

      ...but hey, at least most of the people who would actually like this were able to buy it from resellers. Which was exactly what LEGO wanted to avoid in the first place.
