Re: Anybody got Diamond Select Karr??

It's been depicted as slightly greenish-yellow, but I think we went full green to differentiate it even more from KITT. http://i175.photobucket.com/albums/w134/tyrksta/KARRVoiceModulator.jpg As far as the monitors, you'd have to ask KARR what he was watching on TV. Probably something bloody.

Re: Anybody got Diamond Select Karr??

Universal does not own the rights to Paul or Peter's voices, so they were not available to us. The voice we used was our best available option -- there is nothing wrong with the chip, it's just a deep voice. Sorry some people don't like it.

Re: Anybody got Diamond Select Karr??

Yes, packaging is modified KITT packaging. Just trying to keep the price on all of the vehicles down by sharing wherever possible. KARR dialogue is listed on top, though.

Re: Anybody got Diamond Select Karr??

The 1:15 DST KARR is shipping to US comic shops tomorrow, although some may have it already. I do not know for sure about UK retailers, but if Amazon UK has them, that's a good sign (unless it's a US retailer selling on Amazon UK). Sorry I haven't been able to share any videos of KARR, I haven't had...

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

FYI, these are shipping to comic shops and specialty stores tomorrow. So if you don't live near a TRU and haven't had good luck with Toysrus.com, now's your chance.

Re: DST electronic KARR available for pre-order

Thanks, KR. We had to adjust some things to accommodate the electronics, but I think it's a great car. Glad to see the Minimates in your collection, as well! After looking at the original KITT, I think the turn signal will be painted just like that one, but I will try to confirm. And we are looking ...

Re: DST electronic KARR available for pre-order

The stripe over the wheel is not that thick, it's pretty thin, in fact, but I'll see if it's happening. Ditto turn signal decal.

You're getting that, I just used the incorrectly photoshopped picture in the store. (Photographer added the glow effect.) Fixing now.

Re: Diamond Select Michael Knight 8" Figure Cancelled

You're right, KR fans are often sticklers for detail. They may even have Star Trek fans beat out for that. I won't get into the whole discussion of compromising accuracy to make an affordable series of toys, but I will say that if you haven't played with the electronic KITT (or the Minimates KITT, S...

Re: Diamond Select Michael Knight 8" Figure Cancelled

I'm genuinely sorry it was cancelled, because I think everyone here would have been impressed by the final product. Our prototype heads rarely resemble the final heads, since we have to take into account the materials that will be used (shrinkage, base color, etc.), but it looks like in this case pe...

Re: diamond select prototype vs production model

By the way DST, a Super Pursuit Mode KITT has an entirely different dashboard. It uses a 1-tv dashboard unlike the dashboard on the current 1/15 KITT. So I hope you guys would make the effort of using a different dashboard instead of just applying the SPM parts onto the current crop of 1/15 KITT. A...

Re: diamond select prototype vs production model

The spm video shows the rear spoiler but not the sides of the spoiler that raises up thats attached to the body. Hard to see the rear of the car in that video, but that's a very early prototype. Fairly certain the final car will have them. Also the dashboard voce modulator is incorrect.I'm seeing 1...

I not at pleased with the quality at all. On mine some of the indicator lights are not painted properly, for $50 per unit this should not be the case.

Re: diamond select prototype vs production model

I saw the DST 1/15 KITT for the first time in person earlier today at a local comic shop, it looks really nice! And I noticed the huge space on the t-top between each sunroof. Its not supposed to be like that...hahaha.. By the way, DSTZach, I'm probably one of the few here that can forgive and over...

Re: diamond select prototype vs production model

Darn. Very disappointing indeed. Now where is that DST representative that we have here? I wonder what he has to say about this. It's unfortunate, but mass-produced toys occasionally have minor issues. A paint bubble here and there is going to happen, or a paint error. We have full-time quality con...

Re: diamond select prototype vs production model

Do you mean a gap or a seam? All of them have seams. It is how we were able to make the SPM KITT next. The space at the area between the scanner and where the front end of the hood is. Unless its going for SPM, there shouldn't be a space there.... http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8482/8260385187_6f632...

I just got mine from ebay and the quality control is poor, the license plate sticker is missing and the voice box sticker is not straight, the sound although seems to be adequate. License plate stickers are not applied, they are in the box. You get three, a KNIGHT, a KITT and a KNI 667. You can cho...
