Re: Sneak Peek of New Hot Wheels 1/18 KITT!!

They will revise the tires on KARR but not on KITT??? Now the 1/18 KITT will look out of place beside KARR if KARR will have the correct looking tires....

Looks great to see it how it was meant to look back in the day.No blu windsheild or darker unpolished paint job.

Re: WTB Kenner Knight 2000 Voice Car MISB

Something interesting I just looked up: The Kenner car sold for $24.97 back in 1983. According to an online inflation calculator, the car would cost $57.56 today. The car from Diamond Select Toys is a higher quality and does more, and costs about $49. Well done DST! Nice photos! You're the man! Are...

Re: Update on 1:15 KITTs from Diamond Select Toys

No doubt, the Kenner figure was simple, yet a great toy to have alongside the KITT voice car. Plus that figure was closer to scale with the car. This one from Diamond Select has better articulation, but at 3 3/4 inch, its unfortunately out of scale with the 1/15 KITT.. Diamond Select going the Marv...

Re: WTB Kenner Knight 2000 Voice Car MISB

On second thought I'm not sure I should call it "mint" condition. Although sealed, there is some damage to the box. My mother found it from a toy dealer I'm guessing 20-25 years ago. A dealer in New Jersey "knew a guy" in Chicago who had the car. I think it was $250. I'll get so...

Re: New Hot Wheels KARR

Yeah... It seems I somehow have an early prototype version, if not that its a rare defect... Look at this one from Mattel which is an official photo. It has the KARR license plate, but not sure if it has the amber scanner though, but I'm sure it does... >>>> http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-cRoPVFL0mFU/UPx...

Re: New Hot Wheels KARR

Just got KARR.... Looks good but the silver paint can be improved as it looks too sloppy. Also its with a red scanner instead of amber and its the wrong license plate. A simple repaint of KITT and they lazily left out the details such as the license plate and the amber scanner.... http://farm9.stati...

Re: 1:18 K.A.R.R. Coming Next from Hot Wheels Elite!!!

Seeing as they have done KITT, a 1/18 KARR is a given... Still waiting to get my hands on that 1/18 KITT!

What an interesting line of cars too... I do want Herbie and the BatPod!

Re: New Hot Wheels KARR

I'm still waiting for mine to arrive. Yes, for some strange reason, many companies that have done KARR tend to miss out the silver paint for the wheel wells. I'm not surprised hot wheels missed it out too. Its probably a tricky part to paint ;-)

Re: Sneak Peek of New Hot Wheels 1/18 KITT!!

Yes.. Its a pretty known fact that they used a lot of different cars for different scenes throughout the series. And yes, the grilles for the foglights is how kitt was in season 1.

You've never seen Knight of The Juggernaut? What a coincidence that G4 is around the same episode where I'm at currently.. I'm on my own Knight Rider marathon.. Watching all the episodes on dvd... Maybe you should get the dvd set too....

Re: Update on 1:15 KITTs from Diamond Select Toys

Just purchased my 1:15 DST K.I.T.T. from the Toys'R'Us across from the mall where I work north of Seattle, WA. I braved walking there and back in a pretty steady rain with winds of 20-25 MPH (gusts probably up to 35) just on the off chance they would have it and luckily, they did. There was only 1 ...
