    Bought a few SR toys since I used to watch the toon, they're pretty nice.
    Not sure if I like the Mach 6 yet, and I don't like the new style Racer X much at all

    Will upload some pics later.

    Anyone buying?

    I bought a bunch of the plastic 1/64 cars, and now that they are Spiderman 3'ing the isles I wish I had the money instead.

    The Jada anime cars are much better.

    What's the deal with the Mach 4 & 6? I don't remember those. I'll probably get a regular Hot Wheel sized Mach 5.

    Hear ya man, Im pretty much done with them,

    Figured I needed atleast 1 SR car just for the fandom part while the choices are good, but ended up with 4.

    There's a slick $10 semi truck car launcher that's looking pretty tempting

    Actually I think the Mach 4 is from the old cartoon... but the Mach 6 is a new car created to drive in the new Thunderhead spinner wheel F-Zero circuit. If you notice Racer X has a new car too.

    Some of it's tempting, but I'm sticking with the bigass Mach 5 playset and figs from a few years back for my Speed Racer quota.

    And it came with the monkey.

    the deal of the mach 4

    okay i am not sure if it was in the old cartoon, but it is NOT a new idea...a long time ago, when johnny lighting did the speed racer cars, on the back of the packages you could send in some proof of purchases and some money and they would send you the mach 4, a special chase car which was just a red mach 5 car with the number 4 on the sides (i wanted it but then the shop were i got them closed down before i could get enough proof of purchases)


    seems hotwheels is going with a more available version now....and i think the mach 4 is actually in one of the thrailers, there is a mach 5 car with red instead of white we see its bottom, could that be it?

    It's been awhile since I've seen the anime, but the Mach 4 might have been Rex's car that he wrecked.

    I'll probably pick up the Mach 4, 5 and 6 Hot Wheels cars but what I really want is the big remote control classic Mach 5. I saw it at Toys R Us for $40.

    I saw there is a Target Exclusive 3 pack (or was it 4 pack) Chrome/Silver versions of the 4, 5, & 6 cars. Looked kinda cool.

    I've been tempted to pick up the normal versions of the 4, 5, & 6 cars since I have the old HotWheels car that looks like the Mach 5 as well as the Johnny Lightning one as well.
