Hulks minifigures

Are Hulks from sets 5000022 (polybag) and 850814 (keychain) similar?
I thought about buying keychain and removing rings to get minifigure only. Is it worth?
That polybag is very expensive. (I have one Harry Potter hair for Hulk to hide head hole.
Many thanks!

    The key chains  ones are glued so you won't be able to swap hair so will be left with a hole in it

    No the mini figure in the poly bag  can be taken apart like other figures from sets

    As far as I have seen they are identical.

    I can't say for certain that the Hulk keyring hair is not glued to the head but previous keyring hair has not been. I have several star wars keyrings that I have removed the keyring part and they were definitely not glued. The metal spike that goes through the hair, head and body keeps them together. Once this is removed those prts can be changed. The only parts that are glued on my keyrings are the body and legs.

    If the hair is glued to the head on the Hulk keyring then this is a new developement. It would be worth spending a couple of quid to find out.

    If the hair is indeed glued to the head and removal of the keyring part leaves a hole this can easily be filled in with modeling clay. The fact that the hair is black would probably mean the hole wouldn't be very obvious or noticable anyway.

    I bought the keyring version some time ago so I didn't have to open my poly for display. The hair wasn't glued and using the soldering iron removal technique it was an easy conversion to add a new hairpiece without a hole in it.

    Had read elsewhere  they were glued but if not that seems like a good way to get one for display

    Thank you!
    Can you tell me if your hulk keyring have one side face like this:

    I'm a little bit confused. Two "same" keyrings with two different head printing?
    According to Brickset, there are only one:

    I can't quite remember. Currently the figure is in an Ikea picture frame. I'd have to get him out. Will ask my son as it's on display in his room right now.

    @iso3200 what is the soldering iron removal technique?  Is it easy and painless?

    Let the heat do the hard work. As the metal pin heats up it softens the plastic, and with light leverage it'll pop out with next to no damage.

    For you, painless. But the same cannot be said for the minifig! (without wanting to restart the is a keychain a minifig debate).
