Last year, movie mavens around the world celebrated 40 years of the slice-and-dice scares featured in Tobe Hooper's The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, and NECA kept the party going with the release of their Mego-style 8-inch Leatherface figure and the unveiling of their upcoming formal Leatherface action figure. The commemorations continue with NECA's recent Toy Fair reveal of their 40th Anniversary Ultimate Leatherface figure that comes with two separate heads and butchering accessories aplenty. Also coming soon from NECA are two new additions to their Body Knockers line that will join the previously announced Jason Voorhees Knocker: the 1954-version Godzilla and Freddy Krueger.

Ultimate 40th Anniversary Leatherface (slated for a May release): "To commemorate the 40th Anniversary of the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre, we present the definitive collector’s version of Leatherface as he appeared in the 1974 film.

The 7” scale figure gets the deluxe treatment, with an all-new body featuring over 25 points of articulation, plus 2 equally gruesome interchangeable heads. Leatherface comes with chainsaw, knife, mallet, meat hook, cleaver, and a vinyl apron. Loaded with features, detail and articulation, and packaged in a Deluxe 40th Anniversary window box."

Freddy Krueger Body Knocker (due out this spring): "Enjoy hours of body-bobbling fun that’s powered by the sun! From the classic horror film A Nightmare on Elm Street, Freddy rocks from side to side when exposed to light. Stands 6″ tall.

Collect the entire line of Body Knockers and watch your favorite characters dance the day away!"
