I wanted to know if there are any variations in the height of Gemmy's Jason Voorhees prop. I've seen three in person, two of which being 6' 7", the accurate height for him. But at a local Halloween shop their Jason is just over 5' 3". I honestly think that they just failed and forgot to pull his shoulders up all the way, but I figured I'd check before I order him.

Tell you a story about this one, I have this prop and he is no where near 6.5ft tall. Problem lies with not being able to lock him in at full height like some of the other gemmy lifesizers. I contacted gemmy about this telling them all they had to do was strengthen the springs in the legs a bit, also my machete keeps falling out of his hand the magnet in the hand is not strong enough to withstand the swaying from side to side. Just my thoughts. Aside from that prop looks great. I think it's false advertising to say 6.5 ft on the box when he really only hits about 5'10". when left on his own. I will try and lock him out again this year see if that helps. I'm pretty sure that any gemmy prop that can be locked in cannot move from side to side but I could be wrong.
Cheers

I got my Jason last year and he stands close to 7 feet in the locked position, probably closer to 6 foot 7 like other people have said. Here is a pic of me with Jason. I am 6'2" for comparison.

When I dig him out this year I will measure him, but I swear mine was close to 7 foot.
