I can't see him being a full head taller than Rob even if he stood at his tallest. Closer to 196 than 197.

Actually he's slouching it appears. Rob may be on point once again with it. 196-197

@Rob,here he doesn't look much more than 6'4 (including the leaning)
In person he was taller ?
Editor Rob: he wasn't under 6ft 5
Canson said on 10/Jul/16
The stance is inconclusive but he doesn't look over 6'5 with Rob and that's generous

198 is to tall probably measured himself earlier in the day. Could be anywhere from 196-197,5 in the evening

Rob,do you really think this guy has 1/2 inch on Hopper ?
They looks like very close
[Editor Rob: hopper has a slimmer appearance, this guy still could be similar to Tom]

Maybe time for a downgrade Rob? You said he's smaller than Clive, who's now 6'5.75.
[Editor Rob: he's in that zone of not seeming a 6ft 6]

Here is Dan with the original Leatherface, Gunnar Hansen, it might be the angle that causes Yeager not to look as tall you'd think with Hansen, who I'm sure has lost some height with age considering his weight.

More than flat 6'5" for sure, but Clive Russell gives me taller impression. Who looks taller in person?
[Editor Rob: clive appears slimmer, this guy has more bulk, but he isn't much smaller than clive]
Ali Baba said on 14/May/14
More 6'4.5" than 6'6".

Rob, let's say you didn't meet this guy and see this photo with a strong 5'8 dude (a scottish one xD)... What would be your guess, just basing on this photo? I mean, if you met my very strong 198 mate, i am sure you'd be barely at his chin level. It would be interesting to see him with all these 6'5-6'6 you met because he would be clearly taller than all of them... The only guy who might edge him out is Daniel Cudmore, but it would be a very small amount ;)
[Editor Rob: well a lot of 6ft 6 guys are what you could call 6ft 5-6 range ]

The tallest Leatherface I think...2 inches over Gunnar Hansen, 1 if not more over Andrew B., not sure on the other two or three but they for sure were not near 6'6".

That is one scary ass dude. Great choice for Leatherface.

Dan isnt standing straight though Arch, thats maybe why he is looking a weak 6ft 6 in the pic and hes got his head tilted slightly, i bet the full 6ft 6 if he were to stand up straight. Otherwise yeah does look 197cm
Lorne said on 1/Feb/14
Your right Arch, but Rob said Rory could be nearer 6'5 flat, and this guy doesn't look much taller, but yeah, one photo is never enough.
Jeff said on 1/Feb/14
I'm 6'3" and a bit and when I saw him he really didn't seem much taller than myself. Certainly not 6'6".
Blaze said on 31/Jan/14
Yeah looks 6'6
Arch Stanton said on 31/Jan/14
@Lorne, g image him and there's a few pics of him from the same event which are full length and he really looks every inch of it. I'm sure Rob would agree having seen him full length and standing in person. Never trust one photo...
Lorne said on 30/Jan/14
I hate to be the one to say this, but, he doesn't really look 6'6? I mean, if you straightened up, I see MAYBE 9.5in. I guess since your a few mm over 5ft8, that would make him near enough 6ft6, but to me he looks more 6ft5.5...
Arch Stanton said on 29/Jan/14
Looks sort of like John Schneider's big Texan country ranching brother. Built like an old oak. Looks a bit under 6'6" here but his posture isn't the best.
Sam said on 29/Jan/14
This guy does look to be a solid 6'6", has an inch if not more than 6'5" range guys who've posed with Rob.
The Exorcist said on 29/Jan/14
I had no idea Leatherface was so tall! lol
Mathew said on 28/Jan/14
How come it's so hard to find a 6'6" guy who actually appears a full head taller than Rob in a photo? Granted, this guy is tilting his head down, a bit.
