Speed Racer - The Ultimate Collection is a Blu-ray Disc and DVD combo set packaged in a giant bust (head) of Speed himself. Priced at $299.98 SRP, this collector edition will be available on November 7th. has a listing for the title, but it isn't accepting pre-orders just yet; our thanks to reader John O'Brien for pointing that out to us.Here's what Funimation has to say about the item, which sports 10 Blu-rays and 16 DVDs, followed by several pics of the packaging:
