Re: ERTL AND HOT WHEELS ELITE KITT COMPARISON PHOTOS

Looks to be a similar problem. I think the only way to fix my rear seat problem is by opening up the entire model which I don't plan on doing anytime soon..hahaha.. I do feel tempted to just glue the back of the seat so it leans properly in place....hmmm... It sure is annoying though. The rear seat ...

Re: So what's the verdict...who makes the best diecast KITT?

Wow... A very good write up there my friend.. I call that a good review! A great read! I have to agree with every point you made in that post. No doubt, it is better and a big improvement over the Joyride KITT, but its not without its own flaws... I still need to figure out why the rear seat on mine...

The headlights on mine sits ok.. I did not push it in till it clicked before I did the video. Only after doing the video did I realize the headlights needed to be pushed down till a click is heard, then the button will reset and the lights will be sitting flushed in its place as shown in the photo b...

Re: FLAG Mobile Unit Question and a couple of others

That is one sick looking ride! What did you use as a base model and what is your plan for the logo - decal or handpainted? Also, any plans on decorating the interior? A week of waiting is perfect. My work is based in SEA, so the shipping time should be more or less the same (noticed the Air Asia ad...

I bought the Knight Rider Companion book from the Companion website a couple of months ago and it arrived at my doorstep within a week and was actually posted out from Nick Nugent himself..

Re: Got my Hotwheels Elite KITT!

Yeah.. That is a lot of money.... Either way, I don't think I'm going to be getting the Super Elite KITT. Its too expensive for my liking. It is no doubt going to be cool. But I like the current Elite 1/18 KITT the way it is without all those other electronic features.. I would usually end up removi...

Re: Got my Hotwheels Elite KITT!

true......but is it really unreasonable to ask for some quality control at this price point? I'm sure we would have paid $10 more if the seats worked as they are supposed to. I love the model don't get me wrong, it is beautiful, but the issue with the seats isn't cool I agree.. I'm with you on that...

Re: Got my Hotwheels Elite KITT!

Ok.. So I finally got my Elite KITT yesterday. I didn't want to open up a new thread seeing as there is just too many of the same topic, so forgive me for hijacking this thread My thoughts on the model.... This KITT is my second HW Elite model with the Ecto-1 being my first one which I treasure a lo...

Re: ERTL AND HOT WHEELS ELITE KITT COMPARISON PHOTOS

I finally got my KITT.. Problem with mine other than the right t-top not being able to sit flush is that for some reason, the rear seat on mine can't incline all the way so that its leaning. No matter how hard I push it against the back of the interior, the seat keeps staying in an almost 90 degree ...

Agreed.. Unless a real KR fan works at Mattel/Hot Wheels, we will probably never get a 99.9% accurate and perfect KITT model..

I believe its like that on all the pedals of the model.. Easily fixed though by repainting or using a paint remover to remove the green dots..

Re: Got my Hotwheels Elite KITT!

I pre-ordered from my local retailer... Its where I usually get most of my stuff from. Usually once they have an item in stock, they will either call or text me for self collection at the shop. Hopefully they will have it in within this month... >>> http://www.tfh.com.sg/product_details.php?prod_id=...

Hmmm... If so, it looks like the distributors in Asia is rather slow then to distribute them to Singapore and other parts of Asia.. As you already know, I'm still waiting for both KITT and the Ecto-1A... I've noticed well known websites such as Entertainment Earth and BBTS don't have them in yet as ...

Nice... Agreed.. So far, we've never had a KITT model in this scale with opening doors that have the door windows. The only ones I've seen with the door windows is the Aoshima 1/43 KITT and the Charawheels 1/64 KITT, but obviously, the doors can't open on those.. Maybe having windows like that in th...

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

Hmmm... It seems the seats not being able to stay down is similar to what I faced on the passenger ejector seat on my ERTL KITT. It was so sensitive that just a bit of shake or touch would pop it up. It bothered me so much that I ended up removing the parts that made the seat eject. Hope I don't hav...
