I will be getting him but really would have loved a "classic" version with the apron and no makeup.

Regardless, it still looks good.

I LOVE the pose. Get her Leatherface!!! :)

Congrats guys, if this were a 1/6 scale version, I would be on it like flies on crap, but I just can't afford this one...:monkey2

I love the hammer and the bucket, though..too bad it is empty, but it still looks phenomenal(the figure, not just the bucket)

Ya see, I hadn't seen the clasic before seeing the remake. The remake scared the bejeezus out of me. Then I saw the original and was sorely dissappointed. Couldn't figure on what the fuss was about. 'Sides, 1973 is 6 years too early for me.

LOOKS GOOD!!:chew

Order in. :D

My only complaint is in the pose. I'd prefer an over-the-head pose with the chainsaw. Anyone else notice the diamiter is 18"!! I had a hard enough time finding a space for the General now I have to find a spot deep enought for this. :monkey1

Superb job! Thanks SS for giving us a different Leatherface....By the way, the original movie is 1974, not 1973 :rolleyes: ...................Larry

My thoughts exactly, word for word....

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this thing.
Cant stop going back to look at it.

I got my wife to watch the original not too long ago and afterwards she said "Its not really scary, it just freaky and disturbing" and I think this figure depicts exactly that. The tranny suit look and the way he ran around in a frenzy, lugging the chainsaw and sliinging it around as if he had no concern even for himself from the saw.
is that his tongue stickin out too or is it his upper gums?

PERFECT!! Im stoked :D

kain4521
06-09-2006, 08:17 AM
Yeah thats his tongue. I love this figure as well cant wait to get it on the shelf.


Just looked at it again and I think that is his top lip and not his tongue.

What makes the original 1974 Chainsaw so great is something called atmosphere.

Sure, there are movies with a lot more gore and blood in them but Chainsaw just feels so real.

It's the mood and circumstances that make this movie such a classic.

It is really even disturbing at times.

Even looking at this 1/4 statue, I get a chill.

The more I look at it, the more I love it.

Yes, it is kind of weird to display this guy in my house but as a fan of modern horror, it's a must have.

I have my order in....I love it...And since I dont have to pay for it, it makes it that much better!!!!!

And as far as the original movie vs the remake goes...I have to say the original is still one of the greatest horror movies of all times.I do like the remake, but without the original you cant have a remake.

yup. I think youre right. upper lip
Can't wait to add some body parts to the bucket.

wonder why no specific sculptor(s) is credited?

I was just looking at the PF Leatherface again and I noticed he does have the wound on his leg, but there is no blood on the chainsaw...Do you think Sideshow will add some blood or possibly even small chuncks of flesh to saw???I really hope so, that would make this awesome PF even better!!!

Maybe Dusty can answer this...

If they had posed him with his chainsaw in the air I think it would have made him way to tall...thats probably why SS didnt do that pose.Hes already 19" tall, he would probably be like 30" tall with chainsaw extended over his head.

lol 30" tall is taller than my nephew. this guy is gonna be cool!!! glad to see that the horror genre hasnt been forgotten. now when is there gonna be a PF Michael Myers??? his exclusive item could be the sheet and glasses he wore!!! (i know the 12" version came with that, but who here would complain??)

when the newsletter said Leatherface Premium Format edition size set! I initially didnt realize thats the exclusive ES..... still not bad though

I wouldn't expect the regular to be much more than 750.

Well I think the ES is ok considering that the Freddy and Jason arent even sold out and they are really more popular characters than Leatherface.Modern Horror fans shy away from PF ??? Not me....;)

Great ES! Yay!

I'm thinking I'll have to put the Leatherface PFF is my room behind me and move my Obi-Wan PFF from my room to the living room. I don't think my sister wants Leatherface staring at her, chainsaw in hand while she watches Project Runway. :rotfl

I would like both Freddy and Jason PFF but their not my favorite characters. Hence me jumping all over the Leatherface PFF.

The problem with the Jason Ex is that many people, including myself, prefer the regular version than the exclusive. The problem with the Exc Jason is that if you wanted to display Jason and Freddy together, it would look silly to have Freddy next to Jason with Freddy's head in his hand. That's why I got the regular Jason instead of the Exc.
