Two New Leatherface Statues Bring The “Massacre” Home

One of the truly classic horror icons of all time will put a new “face” on your treasured collection of action figures and statues.

Premium Collectibles Studio is rolling out two brand-new 1/3-scale statues of Leatherface from Tobe Hooper’s groundbreaking 1974 The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, as reported by news.toyark.com, and the images on this page will give fans a good idea of the frightening finished products.

Collectors can choose from The Butcher Edition or The Pretty Woman Mask Edition (with The Slaughter Edition including both statues). Each mixed-media statue stands 30 inches tall and comes with its own diorama display base.

Deep pockets (and strong stomachs) are required. The Butcher Edition will run you $1,580, The Pretty Woman Mask Edition costs $1,680 and The Slaughter Edition will set you back an even $3,000. Pre-orders are available through Sideshow Collectibles, with shipments expected to start in November 2022.

The mallet-wielding Butcher statue embodies Bubba’s slaughterhouse style, with a pink collared shirt, black pants, black necktie and a yellow butcher’s smock (complete with bloody stains). The Pretty Woman Mask statue, inspired by the film’s heart-stopping finale, holds a chainsaw above its head and exchanges its smock for a navy blue suit jacket. Of course, both figures sport their trademark sculpted skin masks.

The Texas Chain Saw Massacre–produced and directed by Hooper from a screenplay he wrote with Kim Henkel–follows a group of friends who fall victim to a family of cannibals while on their way to visit an old homestead.

The film–banned in several countries due to its excessive violence–earned more than $30 million at the domestic box office on a budget of less than $140,000, and is now recognized as one of the most influential horror movies ever made.
