First Look at NECA’s ‘Texas Chain Saw Massacre’ Hitchhiker Figure!

Portrayed by Edwin Neal in the original Texas Chain Saw Massacre, the Hitchhiker got his first action figure several years back courtesy of Mezco’s Cinema of Fear line. It’s a great figure, one I have in my personal collection, but it looks like it’s just been one-upped.

Over on Twitter tonight, NECA just teased an upcoming retro-style figure of the Hitchhiker, which will presumably be packaged with the “Nubbins Sawyer” (Hitchhiker’s corpse from Chainsaw 2) figure that the company recently showed off.

We don’t have any details at this time, but you can check out both figures below.

    i never knew the courpse in part 2 was the hitchhiker

      ha me neither!

      I didn’t figure it out until my fourth or fifth viewing. Years ago, when I very first saw the film, I actually mistook his twin brother Chop Top as being the Hitchhiker himself (with a metal plate from being run over by a truck).

    “It-it-it’s a good picture.”

      “You can pay me now”

        That is hands down my favorite scene in the movie. The guy is so earnest.

        • Necro

          Yeah mine too!

        • Darkknight2149

          Yeah, this character is great. I would be bummed out that Ed Neal didn’t play Chop Top, if Bill Moseley weren’t awesome as well. Though, personally, my favourite scene was this one.

  • Darkknight2149

    That’s awesome. I hope the Chop Top figure is also packaged with Nubbins II.

  • Necro

    I’ll add it to the list! I have the Edwin Neal and ‘Chop Top’ figures from awhile ago. These retro ones are nice.

  • Eastman420

    Fuck yeah!!!!

  • NoGutzNoGory

    Well… at least this stuff doesn’t look so Robot Chicken-like. 😛

    I’m a massive fan of the first film. I’m embarrassed to admit how long it took me to put it together that Nubbins Sawyer was The Hitchhiker.

    • Darkknight2149

      I didn’t figure it out until my fourth or fifth time watching that movie that Nubbins was the Hitchhiker. On my very first viewing (many years ago), I thought Chop Top was the Hitchhiker and that the corpse was just one their victims that they kept for fun.

      • Aaron Johnson

        Same. The two actors were so alike I thought the Hitchhiker survived being run over and had a plate in his head now.

        • Darkknight2149

          Same.

    The Hitchhiker was one of my favorite things about the movie. He was one CRAZY son of a bitch! So sad he died.

    • Eastman420

      He’s not dead man

      • Alex

        … ?

        • Necro

          ‘Chop Top’

          • Eastman420

            Edwin Neal is still alive. Hes 72 years old.

          • Eastman420

            Alright you just talking the character? Then yeah he dead and is nubbins.

          • Necro

            Yeah just character

      • Darkknight2149

        Chop Top is his twin brother. The Nubbins ‘puppet’ was actually the Hitchhiker’s corpse. Sadly, he did die.

    Being the actual NUBBINS owner I’d say with all the recent tsa airport and convention attention along with his fan club, tcm fans think NUBBINS should have his own carded release which they would love to have on their shelf instead of a combo pack! We would love to sell some through the fan club! Fans can help with restoration and club merch can https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/e2be80298499aebc56cbbfe85e993aaaeef340138896fb1789096c33d39fec19.jpg go to https://m.facebook.com/Nubbins-Sawyer-1550290415275490/?ref=bookmarks
