‘Chewbacca Mom’ receives customised action figure from Hasbro

As a thank you to Candace Payne, Hasbro has honoured the ‘Chewbacca Mom’ with her very own action figure.

After receiving more than 114 million views for her video wearing Hasbro’s Chewbacca Mask, the company invited Payne and her family to its Headquarters in Pawtucket, Rhode Island where Payne received her action figure.

During a Facebook Live video Payne unveiled her action figure, which comes complete with a Chewbacca Mask that can be removed to reveal a model of herself.

The toy boasts 13 phrases, including ‘I am such a happy Chewbacca’ and ‘That’s not me making that noise, it’s the mask’, which Payne is famous for saying during her viral video from May.
