LOOK: 'Chewbacca Mom' gets own action figure

MANILA, Philippines – Candace Payne, better known as "Chewbacca Mom," is on a roll. She got to visit Facebook's headquarters, drive James Corden to work, and get a message from the real Chewbacca, Peter Mayhew, in the process – among many other things. Now, she has her own custom action figure from toy makers Hasbro.

Candace visited Hasbro's headquarters, and chief executive officer (CEO) Brian Goldner personally presented her with the action figure. It has the body of Chewbacca, but has the head of the Internet star – with a removable Chewbacca mask to boot!

A Hasbro representative shared with Entertainment Weekly that the toy says catchphrases like "That’s not me making that noise, it’s the mask," "I am such a happy Chewbacca," and of course, her trademark hearty laugh.

She wrote on Instagram, "Thanks SO much, HASBRO. You literally rolled out the red carpet for me and my family. Thanks for making play so much fun!"

She even got a Star Wars toy designer at the company sketch something for her: Chewbacca on a tauntaun.

One of the Star Wars toy designers at HASBRO asked if there was anything I would like to see drawn by him. This was the only thing in my mind to ask for. And it came out GLORIOUS. A photo posted by Candace Payne (@candacepayne) on Jun 17, 2016 at 12:10pm PDT

 

"Chewbacca Mom" also went live on Facebook while at the Hasbro HQ – the same way she got famous – to showcase her action figure. 

She called this time "a second divine moment that's happening" after her Facebook HQ visit.

 

Candace first rose to fame with a Facebook Live video that shows her putting on a Chewbacca mask and hysterically laughing with it. The video has since went viral, reaching around 157.5 million views to date. – Rappler.com
