What It Is
The Nickelodeon series Fanboy & Chum Chum follows the adventures of the imaginative Fanboy and his wide-eyed sidekick Chum Chum. These super fans of all things sci-fi and fantasy are adventurous and fearless—and they wear their underwear on the outside of their superhero costumes. Jazwares has produced a new line of Fanboy & Chum Chum toys to allow fans of the characters to bring their adventures to life.
There are two sizes of collectible Fanboy & Chum Chum figures. The three-inch figures feature characters' signature looks and special features, such as Fanboy's glow-in-the-dark eyes and Boog's bobble head. Other characters include Chum Chum and Man-Artica. Each is sold separately and retails for about $5.99.
The six-inch figures have more than 10 moving parts, and each comes with a Frosty Freezy Freeze Pod Cup. Each figure also includes a mini toy Mechatech. Sliding up the lever on the back of Fanboy's head causes brain freeze action—Fanboy's brain pops out of the top of the figure's head. Chum Chum comes with a tongue and bubble gum mouth pieces. The figure's underwear also opens for storage. Each is sold separately and retails for about $9.99.
