Re: Got my Hotwheels Elite KITT!

The headlights not being able to sit flush is very obvious from photos I've seen of the model even before it was released as well as in the reviews at YouTube.. I'm expecting the headlights not being able to sit flush and I reckon it will somewhat be an issue on this model which they would probably ...

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

The one from Diamond Select Toys isn't diecast, its plastic... As a toy, that one is great... But when it comes to the world of 1/18 and diecast for the adult collector, I think the one from Hot Wheels is no doubt the best one so far... ERTL KITT probably comes a close second...

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

Very nice! Also having to paint 3 separate lines in a tiny space within the voice modulator in 1/18 scale can be a pain which is why its just solid red instead ;-)

Re: New Hot Wheels KARR

when you are buying these, you might just want to have a look at the rear to check the license plate, see this KITT with KARR's license plate (on a second thought, some people might actually like this, as the first time we saw KARR he was identical to KITT, in TRUST DOSEN'T RUST) Haha.. Now i know ...

Re: Got my Hotwheels Elite KITT!

Probably standard pricing for entertainment based vehicles in the Hot Wheels Elite range... Their normal 1/18 cars from the Elite line are around that price too.

Makes me wonder though if some company out there will do a better one than this Hot Wheels KITT in 10 years time..hahaha..

Re: Got my Hotwheels Elite KITT!

Indeed... At the end of the day, the overall look of the Elite car looks so much better than Ertl's KITT.. They got the proportions really accurate and the interior looks impressive, just like how it looked in the show, and i'm not talking about just the dash :-)

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

They probably want to refine the electronics etc etc before release which is why its slated for 2014..

And is that just a cutout of the semi or do they plan on releasing a 1/18 semi alongside that Super Elite KITT??? Geekgasm if they do that!!!!

Re: Got my Hotwheels Elite KITT!

Wow... Can't compare... The ERTL one looks good for its time, but the Hot Wheels KITT looks so much better, a lot better. Also, I didn't realize how bad the ERTL wheels looked, its totally wrong. Hot Wheels got the look of it just about right except for the tires..

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

Regardless of the wheels though, this model is so much better than the ERTL car in many other areas - pop-up lights, better T-tops, doors with proper hinges, better interior with carpets and soft seats, flat tail light lens, better licence plate, much much better scanner, better overall shape etc. ...

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

Agreed.. Better looking and better shaped tires would've made the model a whole lot better.. It is already impressive overall, but its only the tires and perhaps the somewhat small rims that is somewhat flawed. Maybe the tires is actually making the rim look small....hmmm...

I'm doing another one in 1/64 which will be in scale with the Hot Wheels KITT. Its almost done. I only need the logos which you can find easily online....

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

Actually, f you look at other cars in the HW Elite range on youtube there were various LED bits on such vehicles as the Ghostbusters van (on the inside) and the Batmobile so I don't see why they cannot add something to the dash. No offense but you should check your facts first about the Ghostbuster...

The details on the undercarriage is really nicely done and I really appreciate that! Its all these tiny text and details that makes Hot Wheels Elite so special.. Their Ecto-1 also had tiny text and details which weren't really seen in the movie... Look closely and you can see "WARNING HOT EXHAU...

Yes.. It looks very similar to the chassis shown on the KITT kit... Hot Wheels has done a great job replicating that look! They probably used the KITT kit as reference.. It also shows that the car is detailed not only on the exterior and the interior, but also the undercarriage... In the photo of th...

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

No doubt, it is very nicely done. They really gave it a lot of thought thats for sure. Was that how KITT was supposed to look like at the undercarriage? Too bad in the show, when we saw the undercarriage, it was basically the normal stocked chassis of a 1982 Pontiac Trans Am, not forgetting the visi...

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

Damn... That looks to be the final released version of 1/18 KITT... Even with the off looking tires, it still looks pretty good and it overall looks better than the one ERTL did! 1/43 KITT and KARR looks good and "safe" if you will unlike the 1/43 KITT and KARR that Aoshima did many years ...
