Re: Hot Wheels Retro Entertainment KITT Super Pursuit Mode..

It looks really good for a 1/64 casting. I hope to get it soon. And seeing as Diamond Select Toys did a 1/15 scale of the SPM KITT, I'm pretty confident that now that Hot Wheels have the mold to the SPM KITT, they will probably be doing it in 1/18 scale as well just to compliment their 1/64 diecast...

Re: Diamond Select Toys "Super Pursuit Mode KITT" at TRU

I've just received the SPM KITT today. As usual, its very nicely done from Diamond Select Toys. And yes, its just as good as the regular KITT that DST released early last year. So if you love their regular KITT from before, you will love this one as well... Perfect for any Knight Rider collection! I...

Re: Does Anyone have flaws about the Elite KITT 1/18?

The only flaw I had on mine is the drivers seat. It just won't stay down like it used to anymore. So I actually unscrewed the car a few days ago and stripped it apart to take a look at the ejector seat mechanism. Its a simple fix due to a loose screw. I tightened the screw for the one on the driver ...

Re: Aoshima KITT and KARR

once the model has been assembled and glued, how would you replace the LR44 batteries for the scanner once they run out. The hood I assume would be glue on and underneath is blocked. Any suggestions? There is a screw on panel at the bottom where you can remove it and access the scanner chipboard wh...

Not to turn this into another HW model car thread but those knight industries stickers on the exhausts are silly because KITT is supposed to be a futuristic undercover car. They just practically advertised that it's something special by putting both the exhausts there and the stickers with the name...

Correct! Its what makes turbo boost possible.. Its all fantasy of course, those rockets were never seen on the real car which always had the stock chassis.

Got mine yesterday and had to open it. Already had the Ertl KITT and KARR to compare to. First off mine came with a crushed corner on the black box. Pulled the top packing foam off and the drivers side mirror stuck to it so it's no longer attached to the car. The pass seat will lock in place but po...

If Devon had known it was stevie, maybe he didn't want to tell Michael who she really was just in case Michael didn't want to take up the job, which is highly unlikely and out of c...

Re: Knight Rider Toy Review by JTMitchell87

If you ask me, I prefer the one that came with the figure even though the figure is out of scale with the car. It just feels complete to have both Michael and KITT... But its up to you really since the car itself is basically the same. The figure can be used as a nice display with the 1/18 KITT too ...

I just got mine today... When they first announced that the figure would be 3 3/4", I knew that it would be too small for the 1/15 scaled KITT car. It is no doubt cool to have a Michael Knight figure to accompany the 1/15 KITT, but I just wish it was bigger. A 5" figure would be more to sc...

Re: Hot Wheels Super Elite Kitt/Possible Karr

The Elite KITT is probably as good and simple as it gets for a 1/18 model of KITT. Nice detailing, opening doors, hood and trunk, all standard 1/18 model features. Add up to the pop up headlights, rotating license plate and the only electronic feature being the red LED scanner. Overall, a nice model...
