McDonald's 2008 'Speed Racer' Movie Cars - No. 4 Rex Racer's Mach 4

Here we have Rex Racer's Mach 4 which in the cartoon was destroyed killing Rex Racer in the process - or so everyone thought. Rex survived and went 'undercover' as a mysterious driver who kept close tabs on his little brother Speed. In the movie he is portrayed as a hired gun for corporate interests but actually works undercover along with Inspector Detector to expose the corruptness which has crept into the racing scene. In the movie Mach 4 was not destroyed. The special feature in this car is activated by the pull-back friction motor. As the car is released a 'roar' sound emerges from underneath.  Enjoy!

  1. I still love the original Speed Racer. Great toy and great post!

    1. Thanx Will. Speed Racer had always been under my radar but after cracking open these bags and checking out the toys I've got a new found appreciation for them. It appears I have some catching up to do :-)
