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

Bad news folks. Mattel have scrapped the talking super elite KITT according to www.supercar1.com/catalog/index.php?mai ... ts_id=6302

That's nearly 3 years wasted waiting for it! Not a happy bunny right now.

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

I've been checking supercar1.com regularly for a loooong time now. They post updates every time they're in contact with the Mattel rep. Apparently the super elite KITT isn't even on their production schedule yet, so don't expect it any time soon. I've had my preorder for over 2 years, so I'm startin...

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

Looks good. The wheels/tyres are much better.
I'm not keen oncover black/grey plastic cover in the trunk. Wasn't it a tan colored fabric in the TV show?
Also the front fog lights seem wrong to me. I thought there was 3 in a row and exposed rather than behind a grille.

Well, after 2 months, Hot Wheels have got back to me:

"We are working on this model now and it will be available the first quarter of 2015."

So it looks like its finally happening :-)

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

I wonder if they're waiting for pre orders to reach a certain target before moving into production? But with only 2000 being produced, I'm surprised these haven't been filled. Having said that, there are loads of sites offering pre orders, so that would suggest they're a) nowhere near their minimum ...

I think I'll give the 30 years book a try. If I feel it's not what I hoped for, I guess I'll have to start saving for the other book!

Re: Knight Rider Companion book in the UK?

Thanks guys . So the other book is is comparable in terms of quality photos and behind the scenes stories?

I'm particularly interested by photos of KITT construction and the sets. You know, things you're not supposed to see ;-)

Re: the hoff on soccer am

David is probably just trying to create some interest in the idea. I doubt there is any substance (script etc) behind it. If he is trying to buy the rights, doesn't that mean buying them from Glen? I very much doubt they would work together on this, as Glen's movie has been his baby for many years (...

Re: after tuesday

If the script is still being polished, its gonna be a good 3 years away I reckon, even if a studio/money is found. In these difficult times, I think studios will be cautious to fund a franchise with so many 'failures'. Don't get me wrong, I have faith that it will be made one day, and I hope its soo...

I'm from the UK and totally agree. We haven't even had the pilot over here yet. But I suppose someone has to want to buy it for it to be shown. Perhaps one of the digital-only channels will?
