Sodering iron. Heat up the little hook for just a couple seconds and then pull it out.

What I found works for me is to put the minifig in some boiling water for like 10-15 seconds and then just pulling the metal loop and the little "screw" out with some pliers. It normally comes right out.

Wouldn't the boiling water hurt the chrome?

you'd think since chrome is nothing but a shell surrounding the items, kind of like the candy shell on a M&M.

I didnt have any trouble with it.... I would imagine if you man handle the crap out of it after it comes out of boiling water then yes there is a chance of doing some damage... but I just used the pliers to pull him out of the water and then just grabbed his feet and the little rod attached to the chain came right out of his head...

I pulled the keychains out of several of these minis
