Hasbro creates custom Chewbacca Mom action figure

PAWTUCKET, R.I. (AP) — Chewbacca Mom has a new toy to play with after Hasbro unveiled a custom action figure bearing her likeness.

Candace Payne’s wildly popular video of her hysterically laughing while wearing Hasbro’s toy Chewbacca mask has gained more than 157 million views on Facebook since she posted it nearly a month ago.

She was invited to the toymaker’s Rhode Island headquarters last week and presented with an action figure with her head on Chewbacca’s body that comes complete with a removable mini Chewbacca mask. Entertainment Weekly reports the doll spouts several of Payne’s catchphrases from the Facebook video, including “I am such a happy Chewbacca.”

Payne, from Grand Prairie, has also been presented with various other gifts, including Star Wars toys from Kohl’s, where she bought her mask. She also met Chewbacca at Disney World during her visit to Florida earlier this week.
