[Exclusive] Check Out NECA’s Upcoming ‘Chainsaw 3’ Leatherface Figure!

NECA has provided us with an awesome sneak peek ahead of Toy Fair 2017.

One of my personal favorite sequels, and one that I find to be highly underrated, is Leatherface: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3. Director Jeff Burr’s 1990 film, preceded by one of the coolest teaser trailers ever, featured the most badass Leatherface of them all; played by R.A. Mihailoff, the third iteration of Leatherface was lean, mean, and holy shit did he have a cool chainsaw.

His mask was pretty badass too. Gnarly and nasty as can be.

Despite one being teased but never actually released, we have to date never gotten an action figure of Leatherface based on the franchise’s third installment, but today we’re happy to break the exciting news that that’s about to change. At Toy Fair this weekend, NECA will be showing off their retro-style Part 3 Leatherface figure, and we’ve got the exclusive first look for ya!

The clothed action figure stands 8″ tall and is fully poseable. True to the movie, the blade of his chainsaw is inscribed “The Saw Is Family” and he wears a leg brace. He’ll come in blister packaging with a resealable protective clamshell featuring new art from Jason Edmiston.

Check out the prototype (not final) below!

    Chainsaw looks good. The rest…eh.
    I remember a completely plastic prototype that looked good.

    Cool be nice to have a figure from TCM3. Glad not the final product needs work on the face.

  • I’ve never seen TCM3, is worth to watch?

    • Saturn

      YES!

        Hell yeah Ken Foree vs Leatherface!!!

        • Saturn

          Ken Foree is a bad-ass.

    • WOLF

      It’s ok. It’s light on chainsaw action, not much suspense and no scares. Even the uncut version is light on gore. It was shot in California and you can tell.

        I concur. It’s worth a watch, but I get a bigger charge from the trailer than the film itself.

  • James

    Figure looks awful but I did used to enjoy the 3rd. Viggo Mortenson was an awesome bad guy.

  • Mark Lepine

    This looks bad. It looks like someone tried to make a Leatherface mask on top of a Ken doll.

  • Mike

    Yeah I will pass. I am just not really a fan of the Mego format. I did enjoy NECA’s Dinner Suit Mego Leatherface however.

  • Abandoned_Being

    Please go back and rethink on this one. Not so great look.

  • fannypack aficionado

    I have cooled on the Mego line.
