Looks decent. However, I am waiting for NECA's The Hitchhiker and Nubbins. Really excited for those.

I just googled 'Nubbins' as I'd never heard that name, and apparently Nubbins and the Hitchhiker are one and the same? What's the difference between the two figures TCM?

I like the Leatherface figure....part 3 is my favourite of all the sequels/remakes.

Yes, the Hitchhiker gets run over at the end of TCM. In TCM 2, Chop Top carries around the corpse of the Hitchhiker and referes to him as Nubbins.

I'll be honest, I didn't know that either (and everyone knows how much I love TCM).

Whoa! I always thought Chop Top was the Hitchhiker! (I thought the metal plate was a result of the truck driving over him).
Well blow me down.

Until recently, I wasn't sure either.

I had thought the same thing a while back.

Chop Top was in Viet Nam. Drafted. Came back home with a metal plate and disability settlement of some kind. It's all picked up in the dialogue in the second film. Apparently Nubbins (Hitcher) was a brother. I didn't realize Nubbins was Hitcher until recently myself. Maybe he was section 8**? ;)



**Section 8 (military) Section 8 is a category of discharge from the United States military, used for a service member judged mentally unfit for service. It also came to mean any service member given such a discharge, or behaving as if deserving such a discharge, as in the expression, "he's a Section 8"

Ahh yes...I remember the Vietnam reference now, but I still assumed he was the Hitcher, as he wears a green khaki style t-shirt in the original.
