    Just another little recolor. Made a new head for this guy. It's a Blurr repaint, as Blurr's vehicle mode was an homage to the Mach 5 of Speed Racer fame. Without further ado, the Mach 5:

    Here are the heads I mocked up for the Mach.

    The first head I made was the simple, round one on the far right. It's based off of the original Speed Racer head design, with the round helmet and the visor. I didn't go with it cuz it was just too simple. The second from the right was the next one. I decided to go for a blend of the Speed Racer character's head, and the Generations/IDW Blurr figure. While the panels and shape is very much Blurr, the colors and the big round eyes were taken from Speed Racer's helmet. The rest are Blurrs. I tried to make Blurr look older than the Speeds through slimming the eyes and widening the jaw.

    Two of you suggested using the rounded head, so here you go!

    I don't typically do some original designs, so I'd appreciate some feedback!

    Anyways, enjoy!

    As a die hard speed racer fan I would've put the original head on it to keep that boy racer look. But this is really good either way.

    Awesome. Would you mind throwing head #5 (the round one) on the body and posting it?

    That looks really cool. I'm in favor of the rounded head myself. It just sets him apart from Blurr nicely
