Official Speed Racer Funkeys Update
I've been in contact with someone inside Mattel who has clarified that the release date on the Speed Racer UBFunkeys series that is on Amazon.com is incorrect. The actual release date is not set exactly yet, but is figured for the month of March 2008. I'm sure that this will be a bit of a disappointment to some, but with as many of the already release figures still missing from my collection, I'm a bit relieved. If they saturate the market too fast, it could backfire on them with people getting frustrated.
I was also given the official list of characters for Series 1...
Wave 1: Speed Racer, Chim-Chim, Cannonball Taylor, Trixie, Snake Oiler, Racer X
Wave 2: Speed Racer v2, Taejo
Keep checking back. We will continue to get new Funkeys updates from our new contact! :)
