    Racer By Day, Robber By Night (quickie-bash)

    another quickie straight-forward bash, inspired by the "possibilities" of the new Wachowski Brothers' (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Wachowski_Brothers) Speed Racer (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Speed_Racer) live-action movie, this is my version of the SpeedRacer: *Racer By Day, Robber By Night*!

    Awesome bash, it reminds me of the bad guys in Aha's "Take On Me" video (where the guy is being chased by race car drivers for no apparent reason).

    Diggin' the trippy vibes on your recent figures onesixx. Speed looks like he'd all grown up and ready for some mischief. Great work on your figures, couldn't have been easy to get Speed Racer's persona down into a bash as well as you have :]

    Lol.. ditto to widescene's painful comment. x_x
