6" Racer X Figure From Speed Racer By Tonyz Customz
: Jay Cochran - 2008.05.11
This week's TNI Cool Custom is of a 6" Speed Racer "Racer X
" figure by Tonyz Customz.
Here is how Tony describes the making of it:
"Hi everyone!I used to love watching Speed Racer as a kid so when I signed up for a custom swap, I had to make him. His torso and legs are from a Mad Man figure, arms are from a star figure, the head was from a Captain America with a sculpted visor and sculpted belt. He was primed with white Krylon Fusion and painted with Reaper Master Line paints. Mach symbol on chest and x on head were masked off and painted , no way I could get them that straight by free hand. Thanks for looking!

|Thanks everyone and definitely to TNI for the COTW! I plan on making Trixie and Speed as well but they are taking a while as I am making them look a little more modern while staying away from the movie look.
|DUDE! Very cool! I was shocked to see this! Awesome job my man! Now where's his Lil' brother? Seriously tho nice work. I want to see Speed! And while your at it the rest of the gang. You could probably use Dr. Octopus as a base for Pops.
|Very slick, great job and congrats on COTW!
|Fantastic. Looks like a factory figure.
