You do realize the picture they have of the KITT car on the site is the AMT/ERTL model, right?

8) Now that I know about where to get the model, I am going to tell my guy at the hobby hut near where I live where it is so that I'll be able to get him to order it so that I can get one of those. Thanks for the info. 8)

*Mr Burns voice* "excellent" :lol:

See if you can get some nice pics of the grappling hook and ejector seat in action. This 1:18 has alot to live upto, but you can bet whatever quality it is, I'll be buying one as soon as its released :roll:

Well, now all we'd have to do is buy a couple of G.I. Joe like action figures and customize them into a Michael Knight (unless you want to use the Spanish G.I. Joe figure that we all talked about a while back) to go with the car.

This is indeed good news! I will definitely get one for myself and display it next to my talking Kenner KITT (although i know the scale will be different, the Kenner KITT is about 1/13 in scale). I hope that the new KITT would have detachable t-tops, i will try to cram my Michael Knight doll in it...though it will be a tight fit and his head would probably stick out of KITT's roof!!! I can't wait to try that out :)

That's great news. I hope it will be accurate model of KITT, having correct forms in the hood and frontnose, unlike the 1/25 model.

At least we can look at the bright side. If you turbo boost it, it'll only scratch the paint.

I already have a minature Michael Knight and KITT from Corgi. Judging by the size of the new car, i can probably put Michael on top of the seat and ejection him upward, (like he does in the TV show to get on top of a building). That's nostalgia right there for you.

This is AWESOME!!! I've been waiting for a diecast 1:18 scale version for YEARS!!! My TV/Movie cars consisting of the General Lee, 3 DeLoreans (Soon to be 4), 1989 Batmobile & Ecto-1 welcome the new addition!

Hey! Do you think that if it sells well that a K.A.R.R. version will be released? All they'd have to do is paint the lower panelling of the car. Heck... why stop there?!? Lets see a K.I.T.T. with the 2nd-version dash & an SPM K.I.T.T.

Dare we dream, my friends. Dare we dream!

The only thing that matters is that the car is comming and will be availiable in October. Other than that - lets just wait and see what happens.

I can't wait for the release of the 1/18 KITT.. Its a dream come true once I have it in my hands!!! :D With an opening hood, door, rear hatch, working passenger side ejector seat, working red scanner light, removable T-Tops, working front hitch with grappling hook, what more can we ask for....Its a KITT model we have all been wanting and dream about.. I think this model will beat the 1/43 scale diecast Aoshima KITT because of the features. I wonder what dashboard will the 1/18 KITT have? Will it be the 2 tv dashboard or the 1 tv dashboard?? We just have to wait and see.... :lol:

I pre-ordered mine from http://www.diecastmuscle.com/store/33844.

When it comes to size, the 1/18 scale KITT will definitely win in that category when compared to the Aoshima. I also believe that they will use the 2-TV dashboard because that is the original design. Doesn't matter though, I will still purchase it if they install a 1-TV dash.

I'm going to wait for the initial pre-orders to be received to get some feedback on the quality of these models. Hopefully it's going to be right up there with everyones expectations..

I'll buy any 1:18 KITT from a brick-and-mortar store. I doubt that it'll have the flashing scanner, but one never knows...
