Re: Knight Rider's 5th anniversary

Not only did they ditch the cage car, they also threw away the remote KITT Ford had built for them. The two items that made the new KITT come alive were trashed, I will always wonder what was the motivation behind that.

Re: Got my Hotwheels Elite KITT!

Same goes for me. I'm in Canada, so whether I purchase from the USA or Hong Kong, I still have to pay shipping charges and potential import fees, although I will admit shipping to Canada, besides shipping within the US, seems to be much cheaper than overseas, and our import fees aren't that high, i...

Yes the two red Ford Thunderbirds and one of them blew up KITT. It was also the only episode that did not have the traditional intro.

Re: HI EVERYONE!

Welcome to KRO, I like those episodes too. I would also add Knight Of The Phoenix, Trust Doesn't Rust and Knight Of The Drones to that list.

Re: Ertl Kitt light up functions

That one is modified, the stock model only has a light up scanner. It does however have two buttons, one is "Try Me" which lights it up for about 15 to 20 seconds and then shuts off, the other button keeps it on permanently.

No amber scanner, it was really difficult to get a clear picture through the packaging but you should be able to make out the KARR on the plate.

Maybe they are factory seconds and get rejected from the production line?

Maybe factory seconds are supposed to be thrown out or destroyed and the workers take them home?

who knows!


I hope that is not the case, I placed my order a few days ago.

I would say that is way over priced. On eBay they go between $200-$400 usually, I got mine for $150 brand new.
