Build Speed Racer and Snake Oiler’s cars from the Speed Racer movie with this LEGO kit. Here’s our toy review.

The animated action of the classic Speed Racer cartoon comes to life in dazzling colors with the wacky new Speed Racer movie. And, with the LEGO Racers Speed Racer & Snake Oiler kit, you can build two of the crazy cars from the film! With 242 pieces, this kit has both racers, their cars and decals to style 'em up. They're nice big cars with room for passengers and they're easy to build. They feel like they could use a couple more pieces to make them sturdier, but they're still solid enough. The wheels are a bummer though - they can't do any of the crazy twisting and turning from the film and they're on fixed axles so they have to spin together. But, with two cars in the pack, this and the other Speed Racer LEGO Racers kits, Racer X & Taejo Togokhan and Cruncher Block & Racer X, are perfect for splitting with a friend!

Thumbs Up:

  • Two cars for instant racing action - alone or with a friend.
  • Nice big cars.
  • Easy to build.
  • Snake Oiler has awesome decals!
  • Thumbs Down:

  • Disappointing wheels
  • They feel like they're missing a few pieces...
