Error #1006: value is not a function (AS3)

Inside a function group94imageMenu I have a loop that generates a photogallery from an xml-list, but everytime I want to use the loop I get the following error.

TypeError: Error #1006: value is not a function.
      at content_fla::MainTimeline/group94imageMenu()
      at MethodInfo-219()

If I trace (thumbs) before the for-loop I get following output:

How can I implement this array so the result would be:
imageMenu.addItem(new imageMenuItem('foto1.jpg', showImage, {thumbnails:thumbList}));
imageMenu.addItem(new imageMenuItem('foto2.jpg', showImage, {thumbnails:thumbList}));
imageMenu.addItem(new imageMenuItem('foto3.jpg', showImage, {thumbnails:thumbList}));

//this is my code, but it gives the #1006 error
trace (thumbs);
	for(var i=0; i<thumbs.length(); i++){
		var thumbList:String = thumbs[i];
		imageMenu.addItem( new imageMenuItem(thumbList, showImage, {thumbnails:thumbList}));

Where the XMLList is created I used the wrong syntax:
var projectList:String = list[i].fotos.foto.thumb;
has to be:
var projectList:XMLList = list[i].fotos.foto.thumb;
