Remember Chewbacca Mom, the mother who went viral for posting a video of herself wearing a mask of “Star Wars” character Chewbacca? She now has her own action figure.
Candace Payne was invited to toy company Hasbro’s headquarters where she received the one-of-a-kind Chewbacca action figure with a removable mask.
In a live video posted by Payne on Facebook last June 17 (PH time), she demonstrated the toy’s unique feature – unmasking the Wookiee action figure to reveal a face of herself.
“Isn’t that hilarious?” Payne said to applause from Hasbro people. The video went viral, getting more than 709,000 views as of late Saturday, June 18.
She then asked her audience to give a hand clap “for these amazing people that develop stuff that your kids have,” referring to the Hasbro folks.
Before her Hasbro visit, Payne had been invited to Facebook headquarters by founder-CEO Mark Zuckerberg.
Payne went viral over her Facebook Live video where she wore a Chewbacca mask last May.
