The horror icon is brought to life.
Kotobukiya added to their impressive lineup with the new Leatherface ARTFX statue and we can only say, wow.
Over the years, Kotobukiya has done a decent job in the past with their horror related ARTFX, especially with Jason Voorhees.
You can recreate Leatherface in his eerie, expressionless mask, or even display him as an obedient man who sometimes even looks frightened.By turning the chainsaw in his left hand upside down, you can even recreate the pose in the infamous movie poster with his movable head and left elbow.
The mask, which has eyelashes implanted as shown in the movie, is made of soft resin and is ultra-thin and transparent to match the scale of the actual prop.
The front and back of the mask are connected using real hand-tied string just like in the film. The texture of the fresh blood stains on the apron, the dust that reminds fans of the dry Texas air, and the shirts with sebum stains are all perfectly brought to life.
This base comes with a 150mm diameter steel base designed to look like the on-screen text and still photo from the beginning of the movie. The statue can be placed freely on the base with magnets that are inside of the feet.

Some might question the pose they used for Leatheface, but we think this one works best. You get the same feeling of dread as he is starting up his chainsaw.
The only downside might be the price but this is a one time figure any fan should add.
Kotobukiya will be releasing the ARTFX statue in August of 2021 and you can pre-order it now for $179.99
