These five inch action figures showcase the “Nightmare” versions of the Five Nights at Freddys crew including Foxy (JAN172822), Chica (JAN172821), Bonnie (JAN172820), Fun Time Foxy (JAN172823), and of course Freddy (JAN172819) himself. Each of the five figures in the set comes with their own build-a-figure accessory to create your very own Nightmarionette!
