Hands up, who remembers Chu-Bops? From 1981 to 1983 these 3-inch square reproductions of popular LP covers with "albums" made of crappy chewing gum were sold in convenience stores and local 40oz shops all across the United States and Canada. I bought several, including a copy of Blondie's Parallel Lines which is still unopened to this day!

This week we're paying tribute to these weird collectables and have created all-new Isotope-staff-flavored Chu-Bops inspired by the awesome albums of days gone past.
