Two 1:18 KITTs? Hot Wheels and Art Asylum?

I haven't visited this site in a long time, so pardon me if I've missed the obvious. In recent months I learned that Art Asylum has prototyped a roughly 1:18-scale KITT with Michael Knight figure and the ability to transform between Cruise Mode and SPM. Sometime afterward I learned that Hot Wheels w...

Re: Give us attack KITT!

I don't like the telefilm's KITT. I'd like to hope that it can only get better, but then again, there was the Knight 4000.

Re: Mio Knight Rider GPS

The only thing i'm just slightly dissapointed about is that KITT's voice sounds almost like he's dying or powering down like he did in a couple episodes. Maybe it was just the way it came across in the video from having a video camera to it or whatever but I guess William Daniels is getting a littl...

Re: Best Jump?

I don't remember episode titles, so I'll just list my favorite jumps from the YouTube video. KITT jumping across the street from alley to alley. KITT jumping over the prison wall. KITT jumping over the helicopter. KITT jumping and nicking that concrete building-type thing. KITT jumping in reverse ou...

Re: Forget the Mustang

Ironically, since I have the screen name "Knight Industries 3000," I think the Knight Industries Three Thousand in the new series looks like -- instead of Darth Vader's bathroom -- Darth Vader's diaper.

Super Pursuit Mode in Conjunction with Other Stuff...

Would KITT's Super Pursuit Mode have been useful in conjunction with other systems? For example... If KITT activated Turbo Boost while in SPM, would he have been able to jump higher and/or farther? Would the extended front end have impeded landings, and would that lowered rear bumper thingy have imp...

I haven't driven one myself, but here's what I've heard: The gull wing steering wheel is actually quite nice, but it takes some time to get used to before you can drive it effectively. Once you do though, it's actually better than a normal steering wheel. How is it better? Just curious. If it were ...

KITT's Steering "Wheel"

KITT's steering "wheel" looks cool, but in the real world, would such a design have any practical advantages over a traditional steering wheel? In my opinion its only advantage is its heightened "cool factor." :lol:

Thoughts?

It was good to see Michael, Devon and KITT again. I wasn't fond of Michael leaving again at the end - especially after Devon's death. I also didn't like that KITT wasn't given a chance to react to Devon's death. Michael hooked him up to the Knight 4000, caught the bad guys, left, and KITT was ready ...

My Thoughts

The next evolution of KITT should be a natural progression of the original series car -- which need not follow the natural progression of Trans Ams since 1982. I would prefer that a new KITT not be obviously based on any car that's been on the market... and that a new KITT wouldn't resemble the Knig...

I think Michael would sigh and exhale deeply way too much during the series, especially when he was talking. It was most annoying when he did it at the trailing end of words and sentences...."Scan his vitals (hufff,hjfhffh)." I suspect that David Hasselhoff smoked heavily at that time... but I don'...

Cleaning Die-Cast KITT

I finally found a Joyride die-cast KITT at a brick-and-mortar store, and I finally bought KITT. I've noticed, however, that the clear plastic "bands" that keep KITT's hood, doors, T-tops, and trunk lid closed in the package have left what looks like an oil on the metallic surfaces of the car. How wo...

Could the fragility of the KITT toys be why they have yet to show up in retail stores? No, I don't think so. The factory probably has problems with the huge demand that they can't keep up, resulting in a backlog. Another theory is that this is a limited run of 10,000 pieces, as Skav pointed out ear...
