Speed Racer Movie Collectibles

Updated post on 23 August 2008

This movie is an adaptation of a Japanese anime named Mach GoGoGo in 1960.
I love the speed and colours of the racing tracks in the movie.
Not forgetting the funny chimpanzee call Chim Chim!
Personnally, I like this flim because overall there was never much of a dull moment.
But I've also seen reviews that many people dislike this movie!
Well everyone has different perferences.
In this movie, I like Racer X the best.
His sacrifice for the family and loneliness added some hints of sadness to the movie.
Same as the LEGO car, I like his car the best among the four!

Haven't fix LEGO in years!
Quality of the bricks seemed to have improved a lot.
The LEGO design for all four cars are different.
So it makes fixing them up fun.
There is one thing I worried is that the decals on the cars might peel off as time goes.
Also for the Snake Oiler and Taejo car, the wheels of these two cars would look much better if they have a wheel cap or something...
