The Latest Action From ReSaurus!
ReSaurus have given us this special early look into the creation of their upcoming classic Speed Racer toy line!
Speed Racer has been around, and a part of Japanese and American pop culture, for over thirty years. While there have been many toys based on the series (the latest in the U.S. being the die cast cars released last year from Johnny Lightning), there has never been a line of action figures. The closest thing fans got were bendies of Speed and Racer X from Just Toys, released about five years ago. And even these didn't see a wide release.
Flash forward to the present. Rabid fans of Mach Go Go Go (as the series was known in Japan) need wait no longer for quality action figures based on this exciting property. ReSaurus, a rising star in the action figure industry, has come to the rescue with what looks to be an awesome line of figures and vehicles! That's right: vehicles!. Along with the various figures planned, ReSaurus will also be releasing Speed Racer's Mach V and Racer X's Shooting Star complete with all their high tech accoutrements!
We thought you'd like to be the first to see the control art for some of the upcoming figures. The first wave should be out by the end of the year, with the Mach V (with exclusive Spritle and Chim Chim figures!) should be out in early 1999.
