LOOK: Chewbacca Mom gets own action figure
You know you’ve made it big when a toy company makes an action figure in your likeness.
Candace Payne, the Texan mom who got famous for a Facebook Live video of herself donning a Chewbacca mask last month, was presented with a one-of-a-kind plastic lookalike by multinational toy company Hasbro.
Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner personally handed out the unique talking and laughing Payne/Chewbacca figurine, which was topped with her face and has a removable Wookiee mask.

The action figure is equipped to spit out 13 different phrases, including Payne’s famed “I am such a happy Chewbacca,” according to a report by the New York Post.
“Thanks SO much, HASBRO. You literally rolled out the red carpet for me and my family. Thanks for making play so much fun!” the 47-year-old internet star wrote on Instagram Friday.
Meanwhile, Payne has reportedly raked in nearly $500,000 in gifts since her May livestream from a Kohl’s parking lot. Her video remains as the most viewed Facebook Livestream ever.
Apart from receiving generous presents, Payne has also done the late-night circuit including a car ride with James Corden and “Star Wars” director JJ Abrams.
She even met famed comic book legend Stan Lee, as well as the original actor who played Chewbacca in the Star Wars films.
Despite her newfound fame, the stay-at-home mom describes the experience as “humbling,” and said she knew why people enjoyed her video so much.
“The world as a whole is in need of a good laugh,” Payne said in an appearance on “Good Morning America.” Khristian Ibarrola
