Well, color us jealous as the Chewbacca Mom AKA Candace Payne has received her very own Hasbro action figure. The now internet star has received all sorts of attention since her Facebook Live video featuring her contagious laughter went viral.
Since rising to fame Payne has visited numerous talk shows, Lucasfilm and now Hasbro’s headquarters where she received the one-of-kind Chewbacca 12″ figure. The figure is made from The Force Awakens Chewbacca toy but includes an exclusive sculpt of Payne’s face with a miniature replica of the now infamous Chewbacca mask. The likeness is true to life and the removable mask is even more so. We will attest to the real roaring mask to being rather fun as we were fortunate enough to receive one from Hasbro last fall.
We have added this unique custom to our 12″ Hero Series Action Figure Checklist as it was created by Hasbro and will undoubtedly be the most expensive and most unattainable figure in the modern 12″ line.
We have also updated our 12″ Hero Checklist with Hasbro’s two latest releases featuring The Fifth Brother Inquisitor and Finn (FN-2187). These figures have begun to hit stores across the country at Wal*Marts and Toys ‘R’ Us. And as reported in Episode 14 of TOY RUN: The Star Wars Action Figure Cast the next wave featuring BB-8 and R2-D2 can be found on Amazon.com through third-party sellers. Look for these to show up most likely in the next few weeks.
Until next time,
May the Figures be with you!
