The Original Leatherface Gets Mezco’s MDS Treatment

Gunnar Hansen’s Leatherface version is and will always be definitive out of all the Texas Chainsaw Massacre films. His look is the most iconic. His performance showed us the savage, scared, and somewhat tender side of the horror icon. Sure, he may have been a murderous cannibal, but you couldn’t help feel a little bad for the guy.
Now you can own a cute version of the chainsaw-wielding, hammer-smacking butcher, thanks to Mezco! He looks like he knows how to make really good headcheese.



“We ain’t in no hurry…cause you ain’t going no place, ha ha ha ha ha!”
Leatherface, the chainsaw-wielding cannibal, joins the Mezco Designer Series!
Leatherface is dressed to kill – outfitted in a short-sleeve collared shirt and tie under his real cloth apron, slacks, and cowboy boots. He comes complete with his infamous chainsaw and a hammer, which can be held neatly in his hands.
You can run, you can hide, but can you escape? For five friends, a typical summer afternoon drive becomes a terrifying nightmare…
MDS Leatherface stands 6″ tall, features 10 points of articulation, and comes packaged in a window box, perfect for display.

Sometimes ya just gotta smack some trespassing kids in the head with a hammer and make them cool off in the chest freezer. I don’t blame him.
I didn’t know it was possible to make Bubba look adorable, but Mezco did it. Now, where are Nubbins, Drayton, and Franklin? I’d love to have an entire set. Unfortunately, Nubbins (the hitchhiker) rarely gets the love he deserves in the toy industry.
While Leatherface was the big bad of the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Nubbins was the most disturbing. He was our first introduction to the Sawyer family and set the disturbing tone for the 1974 movie.
What other version of Leather should be part of the MDS line? TCM2? TCM3? The Andrew Bryniarski version?
