Re: 'Knight Rider' movie begins to step on the accelerator

It will still possibly take years before we see it on the silver screen. Movies go through different script writers all the time, a process which can take a very long while.

But I don't want any slapstick comedy stuff a'la Starsky and Hutch. If they go that route then I am out.

Re: Just heard the turbo boost sound in another show

I remember that sound effect. I am sure it was just the sound of KITT's engine running as KITT was cruising but you may be right.

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

Not to turn this into another HW model car thread but those knight industries stickers on the exhausts are silly because KITT is supposed to be a futuristic undercover car. They just practically advertised that it's something special by putting both the exhausts there and the stickers with the name ...

Re: The Many Mistakes of the Topaz Jump

That is really bad but the one that sticks out in my mind is the one in the beginning of Brothers Keeper when we see KITT with these huge wheels as he lands inside the prison after jumping over the fence.

Re: Goliath and FLAG mobile unit models

Yep, Kent Rider/Tony Westwood built two of those, one of which was mine but I don't own it anymore. He delivered it personally in his own amazing KITT replica. In terms of detail,it was an amazing model but VERY fragile.

They have torn down the KR 08 sets and closed up shot so I doubt it will happen. They have even sold off the Mustang's that were used.

No, I mean Devon. Did Devon not tell Michael that she was really Stevie? Because I'm thinking that he might have said something to him if he knew.

Let It Be Me question

When Michael receives a call from Devon that he is to meet Mrs. March for the first time, did he know who she really was? I got the impression that he didn't and he never told Michael that she was Stevie.

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

The Aoshima looks to be the best of them all and if I didn't have to build it then I would have collected it. The HW model is better than the Elite but I don't like the scanner. It's like the Ertl one in that there is no trail and you can barely see the individual LED lights unless you look at it fr...

I spent grand a few weeks ago purchasing the Hoff's Comtron jacket he wore in the pilot. But that's one of the perks of being single.

We are crazy but if it's worth it to you then it just is. It is nobody else's business what you like.

I got mine today. I bought it on Ebay. Overall, I'm pleased with the detail. There is a slight issue on one of the back wheels as there is a little gap between the tire and the spoke wheel but other than that everything looks ok. The wheels themselves look fine and much better in person. The scanner...

The Modelzone.co.uk website now have the 1.18 officially for sale and no longer a pre-order so I'm going to go back in to my local Modelzone store next week and see if they have it. I've had no phone call yet.
