Re: When Will The Hot Wheels Super Elite 1/18 Kitt Be Releas

This "Heritage" model seems totally pointless, why even even make it? Money, is the simple answer. Releasing models at different price tags with different levels of detail means there's a release for every collector's budget, it allows them maximum return on the same basic moulds and that...

Re: When Will The Hot Wheels Super Elite 1/18 Kitt Be Releas

There's other online modelshops which are hinting about Mattel Heritage version of KITT coming next: Heritage version has started hitting some of the eBay sellers in North America. Heavily cut down from the Elite - it only has opening doors and T-Tops. Hood, trunk, headlamps all sealed shut, no red...

Re: Hot Wheels 1/18 Elite Karr/Super Elite Kitt

Any news on the release date yet? Hot Wheels Elite tweeted to say that they shipped from the factory about a month a go (16th Feb to be precise). From memory it's normally 4-6 weeks after that they start to arrive at retailers (in Europe at least), so they should be due in the next week or two I'd ...

You've asked this question several times already. There are comparison photographs from several members on this forum, and lots of discussions about it, which I have linked you to in another thread - the Hot Wheel Elite model is superior in every area.

Re: Hotwheels Elite 1:18 Scale KITT

I never bought one because the wheels aren't screen accurate. They look like smaller rims than what was used in the show. This was a subject that was raised when the model was released. KITT had 15" rims and the Hot Wheels 1:18s are perfectly scaled. The biggest problem with the wheels are the...

Re: KR AND HOT WHEELS

You're more likely to find the 1:18 and 1:43 Elite KITTs in a model shop - they're detailed collectibles with a premium price tag. Try your local diecast/hobby shop, or look online.

the easy way would be to scan a real car and then use a 3D printer so the car will be perfect How many original cars are there left and are any of them from Season One that HWE wanted to model? Even in the same episode multiple cars were used for different shots. If you're going by somebody's repli...

Re: Got my Hotwheels Elite KITT!

You also sacrifice detail on the Foundation range too. The A-Team van comes with the hood and rear doors sealed up, no aerials, no licence plates, no tyre markings etc.

Re: Got my Hotwheels Elite KITT!

Pleased that your model finally arrived, imranbecks.

Agree with MrSmith about QC though - has anybody yet received one of these models that is free of any defects? Paint bubbles, T-tops, rear light, fog grilles, ejector seats, rear bench.... the list goes on.

Does it come apart easily, and can you access the tail lamp and fog light grilles ones it's apart? Might try and fix those flaws if it's not too difficult.

Re: WILL HOT WHEELS MAKE AN ELITE 2.0 KITT AND SUPER ELITE K

I doubt there will be a 2.0 version of KITT. They may do a standard version with less detail and smaller price like they have with the A-Team van, but that is only a guess as I haven't noticed them do that with the Ghostbusters. They have announced a cheaper version of Ecto1 in their "Heritage...

They're released in the US and Europe - all the big UK retailers had stock delivered in the last fortnight, European retailers got them a week earlier.
