Here's something sure to make her scream with delight: Chewbacca Mom is being turned into an action figure!

The oh-so-viral Kohl's customer—a.k.a. Candace Payne, whose video featuring her cracking up after buying a children's Chewbacca mask has garnered more than 157 million views on Facebook—was invited to Hasbro's Rhode Island headquarters last week, where she was presented with a custom action figure, Entertainment Weekly reports

The new toy features her head on the body of a Chewbacca, and even comes with a removable mini-Chewbacca mask. The figure also shouts phrases like "That's not me making that noise, it's the mask!" "I am such a happy Chewbacca!" and chuckles in her now-signature laugh.

It's been a wild ride for Payne since posting her joyful video, as she's been invited on shows like Good Morning AmericaEntertainment Tonight, plus The Late Late Show With James Corden where she filmed a skit with the host and J.J. Abrams. Watch the video with Corden and Abrams below.
