Class 4 article

Speed Racer was a subtheme of Racers released in 2008 and discontinued the same year. Based on the film of the same name, which in turn was based on the anime of the same name by Tatsunoko Productions. It was a small line featuring only four sets, since the film became a box-office flop. The vehicles are drawn mainly from the pure speed-racing segments of the film, with only Cruncher Block's truck featuring any of the hidden weapon upgrades the cars are seen using at some points on-screen.
