Superb. Really can't wait - even more so now!

I'm getting exactly what those who have placed pre-orders for the Jap version will be getting at a fraction of the cost!

The first game was rubbish. Sincerely hope the second is a HUGE improvement.

Everyone who is interested in purchasing this upcoming KITT model has his or her preferences. As for you, you are quite happy with the cheaper ERTL with its inaccuracies. That is good, as long as you are happy. But most of us here really are picky and don't quite mind paying a little higher in pric...

It's got the correct nose, bonnet, rear end, interior, scanner, wheels etc. Two amber lamps and some small decals on an otherwise superb representation qualifies, in my books, as an excellent representation. Not perfect, but damn near good enough to keep me happy. The choice is there, but the extra ...

I'm a fan, and I can see past 2 amber foglamps and decals which I can remove in a matter of minutes if I so wish. ERTL have provided an excellent representation with some minor errors, which I am more than willing to tolerate in order to have the model I've wanted my whole life sitting on my shelf. ...

I wouldn't say manufacturing a detailed mould of the car we've all wanted for years is a dishonnur. If it wasn't for ERTL making the mould, you wouldn't even be having this conversation about Aoshima vs ERTL now.

btw, the material looks cheap. still plastic looking. either that or they used very good polish. also, just why would they have removable t-tops as a feature, anyway? The material will be exactly the same as the Japanese counterpart - diecast metal painted gloss black. Not plastic! How can you say ...

looks crap. How can you say that? There are two pieces of plastic different! It isn't a convertible either - the convertible KITT didn't have any rear window, and the spec of the ERTL model shows it as having removable T-tops (which can also be seen on the rear wall of the previously posted ERTL pa...

Looks superb! Can't wait! Ok, so it's got an amber light, and lettering on the tyres, but I've been waiting my whole life for this model! Is it really worth paying to import one all the way from Japan just for 2 fog lights? If it does say Trans-Am on the wing, it's easily removed in 10 seconds with ...

I don't believe the foglights will be stickers - this is a 1/18 scale model, and stickers for lights just don't hack it. Looking at my shelf, I've not got a single model with stickers for lights, from any manufacturer.

Any idea how soon you will be able to get the photo online?

Still can't see it?

Not bothered anyway - been waiting for this diecast in my collection for years. It'll be the best model ever, and I'd rather have a slightly flawed model than none at all - beggars can't be choosers.

Hi all. First post here. Ordered my KITT last week, can't wait to get my hands on it! Been looking around for every photo and scrap of information I can find online - ERTL have done a fantastic job. I'm confident the ERTL car will be identical to the one seen at the Tokyo toy fair, seing as it's Ert...
