Nerdy Bytes: NECA Releasing Leatherface Figure Based on Atari Game
Action figure heavy-hitter NECA has unveiled a Leatherface figure based on the Texas Chainsaw Massacre video game released by Atari back in 1982. The game wasn’t very concerned with detailed appearances, resulting in Leatherface’s green or blue body and tan blockhead that didn’t resemble the classic character.
This color scheme is presented lovingly in this figure, with his chainsaw being like a green extension of his body, although the character is admittedly far less pixelated than his video game counterpart. The 7” figure will be released with a distressed, vintage-looking box that features a picture of an original poster for the 1974 horror movie.
