McDonald's 2008 'Speed Racer' Movie Cars - No. 7 Taejo Togokhan's Race Car

Taejo Togokhan is the son of the president of Togokhan Motors and rival to Royalton Industries and their attempts at race fixing ad as such is one of the good guys in the film and in the end agrees to testify at the trial against Royalton.

It's funny but prior to opening these bags up I had no preconceptions about the cars, their drivers, the storyline, etc., as I hadn't been an inductee into the world of Speed Racer. The very first impression I had when pulling the car out of the bag and looking at the color scheme was, "Who drives this thing? A Sith Lord?" All that came to mind was a picture of Darth Maul at the steering wheel LOL Anywho, like all the other vehicles in this series it has a special feature, but nothing fancy here though. There is a small knob underneath the chassis offset to one side and protruding down just far enough to raise the car ever so slightly. As you pull back the car and release, the slightly raised knob causes the car to run in an odd circular, spastic motion.  Enjoy! Fritz and Bettina Berg
