Eh, not really. I just bashed a Speed Racer figure using a Hot Toys body and head. Sorry if I got anyone's hopes up!

I grew up with Speed Racer (dating myself here) and was very excited to hear about the upcoming movie.

So here you go, hope they appeal to you.

Good work (not you, Wachowskis)

Nice work my man... Grew up watching it here in LA on Chanel 52.. I Liked Racer X too. I thought him to be a little tougher character..Thanks for sharing man this takes me back to mixing Bowls of Capt Crunch after School in fornt of the TV House to myself watching Speed Racer and Giant Robot.... Oh and here's a cyber kick in the shen for making me think Hot Toys was going to do this.......

Very nice bash. I remember watching that cartoon a my Grandma'a house 20-30 years ago. You need some chim-chim and Spritle action, too!

A 1/6 speed racer seems right up Medicom's alley if you ask me, given their history of anime figures. My oldest sons and I are totally looking fwd to the movie; I think to enjoy it you have to like Speed Racer, and realize the live action flick is based on a children's cartoon...should be fun.

hey, I was thinking of the same thing! nice bash!

you know, if you wanted to get something a little closer to the original anime, with an anime-style head, I'd suggest using Toynami's ROBOTECH RICK HUNTER Figure. You'd have to cut off the spiky hair, and it would probably only look good with the helmet on, but that figure's head might work.

Cheers and great job!!!

For a quick bash it's pretty damn cool. I to grew up with Speed Racer. I hope the movie isn't a heaving pile. I tried to watch a few old Speed Racer episodes for nostalgic reasons - not as cool as I remembered.

Were any of you in L.A. as kids in the 70's? If so do you remember channel 52? A Japanese language channel that had all the cool anime and live action like Kakider, Kaymen Rider, Ultra Man, Giant Robot, etc,...

Channel 52 was the bomb! That's where I used to watch Speed Racer, Giant Robot, Ultra Man and the 3 Stooges??? What was up with the 3 stooges being on that channel?

Then I'd beg my mom to drive me to Kunimatsuya; (sp?) the Japanese robot store in Gardena to spend my allowance.
