one of the reasons why i love horror movies and figures is because when i was a kid (around 6 years old maybe) i used to play with 3 figures from an older relative of mine (sadly that was only when i went to his house) i didn't knew anything about the characters but their appearance was incredible, so i was really surprised one day (still as a kid) near Halloween when i saw a movie on tv and one of the characters was there, he was named Jason Vorhees and the movie was Friday the 13th part 3, that's when my love for the genre was born.
The other two figures? leatherface and Freddy Krueger, all of the three where McFarlane figures, and because of that is that i was always (and still) looking for them when i buy any figure.
So i got my hands on leatherface, and even when i prefer other figures that i think have a better representation of the character (i'm looking at you mezco) i like this one mainly because of what i wrote above, sadly, the one i got wasn't the bloody version, which was the one i wanted. so it was time to customize.
just a blood repaint with a new technique i developed, using dye instead of paint trying to get that classic McFarlane style for the blood, it doesn't look like that but i think is close. The parts that are "meat" like the end of the limbs/head where painted with 5 different colors (acrylic), and the movie maniacs frame was repainted with a darker shadow, though i think it can't be seen on the pictures, the poster on it was reprinted because the original was in a bad condition and this new one was printed in 600 DPI so in the end it looks even with more definition than the original, got everything sealed and then added gloss varnish on the blood, lastly the chainsaw was blended with heat.
you can also notice that i took advantage of the situation to repaint an arm and a head from my leatherface diorama.
that's it, thanks for looking and more thanks if you took the time to read (: any comment is appreciated, bye!
