Chewbacca Mom is now an action figure because no one deserves it more
Candace Payne, aka Chewbacca Mom aka the world’s happiest Star Wars fan, has reached new levels of awesomeness. She officially has her own action figure.
During a visit to Hasbro HQ, the toy company presented her with a one-of-a-kind Chewbacca Mom action figure. From the neck down, it’s Chewbacca’s body, and from the neck up, it’s a complete replica of Payne — and it’s amazing.
The toy doesn’t just look like Payne, it also features 13 of her catchphrases — like, “That’s not me making that noise, it’s the mask,” “I am such a happy Chewbacca,” as well as her contagious laugh, reports EW.
Payne posted a picture of all the excitement. “Thanks SO much, HASBRO,” she wrote on Instagram. “You literally rolled out the red carpet for me and my family. Thanks for making play so much fun!”
Payne has been receiving all kinds of star treatment — she was given a bunch of Star Wars merchandise from Kohl’s, took a tour of Lucasfilm HQ, visited Facebook HQ, was a guest on The Late Late Show with James Corden (and J.J. Abrams!!), made an appearance on an episode of the official Star Wars YouTube series and has made tons of money — all from being hilarious and really, really happy.
She definitely deserves all the good things coming her way.
