Chewbacca Mom Gets Her Own Action Figure, Because Why Not? (PHOTO)
Candace Payne, the Texas lady better known online as “Chewbacca Mom”, has now been immortalized in toy form — just like the mask that brought her fame. Hasbro has made a custom figurine for Chewbacca Mom. And she talks!
Gifted to Payne at Hasbro headquarters, the custom figure speaks 13 phrases, including “That’s not me making that noise, it’s the mask,” “I am such a happy Chewbacca,” and the infectious laugh that turned her into a viral sensation. This is the latest in a long line of gifts Payne has received since becoming internet famous, as she’s also been given a tour of LucasFilm, a free trip to Disney World, over 10,000 Kohls rewards points, and straight-up money. Needless to say, everything’s coming up Payne. Check out the Chewbacca Mom action figure unveiling below, posted over the weekend to Hasbro’s Twitter account:
