$1,000 for a Chewie mask? Viral sensation causes online frenzy

If you want to be a "happy Chewbacca," it's going to cost you.
The electronic Wookie mask that sold out at several major toy chains because it was featured in a viral video is now fetching upward of $500 on eBay.

Consumers who were able to get their hands on the coveted toy have taken to the online auction site to sell it for quite a markup. Price tags range from $50 to $1,010 for the Chewbacca mask, and eBay customers are shelling out the cash.
One mask sold for $499 on the site over the weekend while another retailer has sold at least three masks in the last day for $119 each.
