Chuck stands in a giant sandwich as the character likes to eat a lot, and as Elbert Or explains about the prototype is that originally it was supposed to be released without the stand. But there was a design flaw that makes Chuck fall down on his huge head. Elbert makes minor changes to the overall design and adds a giant sandwich as its base.
