Party City and Halloween City officially revealed their entire 2023 lineup of new animatronics today, just hours before Spirit Halloween’s flagship store grand opening.
The 2023 lineup from Party City is headlined by the third of three new life-size Leatherface animatronics, all officially licensed from the 1974 original Texas Chain Saw Massacre movie. Standing at six feet tall, this one is produced by Tekky and features the killer wearing his bloodied apron and tie, with his main “Killing” mask. His audio includes Leatherface grunts and grounds, and the sound of the chainsaw revving up, with his arms rapidly raising and lowering this chainsaw. Priced at $325, he will be available to order online here.
