"Chewbacca Mom" Candice Payne received her own custom action figure courtesy of Hasbro when the viral Internet video star visited the toymaker's headquarters last week.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the video shows Payne in a Hasbro Chewbacca mask she purchased at Kohl's and became the most viewed Facebook Live video of all-time last month.

The video, posted on Payne's Facebook page on May 19, has been viewed more than 157 million times and shared another 3.3 million times.



Payne has since been on a whirlwind adventure that has included visits to late night talk shows as well as a tour of Lucasfilm headquarters, according to Entertainment Weekly. Payne and her family's visit to Hasbro, though, included the gift of her own Chewbacca action figure, composed of Payne's face and a Wookie's body from the neck down.



The figurine features Payne's delightful laugh, along with 13 catchphrases, including "That's not me making that noise, it's the mask" and "I am such a happy Chewbacca," wrote Comicbook.com.

Payne posted the experience on Instagram as well.

 

Thanks SO much, HASBRO. You literally rolled out the red carpet for me and my family. Thanks for making play so much fun!
