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

I doubt it's due in April. They've already been on eBay HK for a few weeks and the shipment left in January. Most retailers that give a date are expecting them next week, including GPL, who don't give any arrival dates out until they have been confirmed by the supplier. The 1:43 is available from G...

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

I saw the 1:43 in Modelzone yesterday but did not buy it as I'm holding out for the 1:18. Interestingly, the staff there told me that the Elite will now be out in APRIL instead of this month. No idea why.

Re: Got my Hotwheels Elite KITT!

I'm not sure but it does look like the scanner is made up of individual lights unlike the Hot Wheels test video where the scanner looked "seamless" like KI3T's.

Can you confirm this?

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

I might hold off and get the Super Elite then. One question though, will the Super Elite be exactly the same as the standard in terms of detail, presentation etc or will it look different in any way? I imagine it would look much the same. It will probably have the new tyres that they will be fittin...

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. The ones on YouTube have been modified by their owners, like this: m I...

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

It's a collector's diecast model, rather than a toy. Nothing else in their range has a light-up dashboard, nor does this model. Take a look at any collector quality model from top brands like Minichamps, Hot Wheels Elite and AutoART - none of them have those sort of 'gimmicks'. They're static model...

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

I saw those facebook photos today and thought the model looked okay but they would have to make the dash do something in order for it to compete with the Diamond Select version which I thought was impressive, particularly the light up voice box. Are they making the dash do anything? Pop up headlight...

Re: Knight Rider (2008) - It's a shame, NBC

The fact that the ratings were actually climbing toward the end of the season goes to show how greedy NBC were and were not willing to be patient to see the show through to see it's slow road to success. They made some bad mistakes at the beginning of the season, so it's their fault that the show wa...

Is there any evidence that was a KITT? I'm sure there must have been other Trans Am's used in other Universal projects.

Re: Anyone ever notice...?

It was said in reviews that the DVD's are cropped but the one advantage I find of cropping is that they hide a lot of the mistakes. In Slammin Sammy's....you could always see Michael holding a round steering wheel, but on the DVD's you can't see this. I guess for purists (and I am one depending on w...

That was a collection of clips and it looked like he was having a good time to me, nothing out of the ordinary. I know he hit a bad spot before Baywatch came along with his drinking and all that.

Re: Why didn't KITT do anything when the forklift had him in

Judging by the stress in KITT's voice at the time when he was picked up, I also believe he wasn't thinking clearly. I know that sounds comical for a computer to behave that way but KITT did develop emotions by that point. But Michael did bring up the good point about KITT not picking up the forklift...

Re: Questions about the series

The thing is you could always see the cover covering the back seat driver whenever KITT drove himself apart from in season 4 when they put the seat further back. To overcome the problem during season 1-3, they could have used better camera angles.

KITT probably needs traction to turbo boost but why he didn't microjam the forklift is a wonder.

Re: where was the spm buttons located in ki2t

If we are talking about the real world, the SPM console probably wasn't in the car itself. In fact, I am 99% certain it wasn't. But in the show I imagine it to be situated underneath the dash although how Michael would not accidentally hit the wrong button is hard to imagine.

Interestingly, in the poster above KITT is barely seen. We just see the top of his windscreen and the roof. KITT is clearly being shown to take a "back seat" to the David character. Even the damsel in distress, Joanna, has been made to be more noticeable, standing alongside Michael as if s...
