No pics, but here is some of what I have.

I have the KITT car that came with the Comtron truck crash set, pictured elsewhere in the thread. Oh, how I wish I still had the launcher and the truck!

One thing I have I don't think I saw here is the Darda windup KITT. It's basically just a Trans Am with a red bar painted on the front. The interior was red, and it had Knight 2000 on the sides, and being the fussy kid I was, I painted the inside black and covered up the lettering. I just hated when KITT cars had stuff like that painted on its sides - KITT didn't!

Also got the Japanese Hot Wheels release and the Corgi. And I've got the 1:18 Ertl coming to me via eBay! Can't wait to get it!!

Of course, also have the complete series on DVD, and some select VHS tapes from Columbia House.

I hear that! That "Knight 2000" lettering on the doors of the Kenner Voice Car used to irritate the hell out of me as a child. I never understood why the toy had that when it was never on the show. When I found a Voice Car and bought it on eBay a few years ago, I experimented and put some black electrical tape over the lettering. Well, it turned out that the car somehow looked naked without it. It's weird, but now I think they toy looks better with the lettering...

I've got the NES KR game cartridge and an original 1982 Matchbox Trans Am today at a flea market. Sorry for the bad quality pictures, my digital camera sucks!

New 1/15 RC KITT

Post by corlando52 » Sat Sep 30, 2006 9:18 pm

Have you guys seen the new 1/15 scale Remote Control KITT?
Here's a link to the Manufacturer:

and here's to an ebay auction to a guy selling it with Buy It Now:

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ih=015&item=250033373932&rd=1&sspagename=STRK%3AMESE%3AIT&rd=1

I've already ordered mine. It's larger than the new Ertl.

:D I have sold heaps of them there are 4 left but if they sell well I can order more in. Its lucky I found them!

They are fantastic R/C Cars much better than I expected to get. I removed the antenna and hid it inside the body of the car and it works fine!

Also great collection Josch! I wish they would make normal Trans Am models. There are heaps of people who like the main ones.

I used some white LED's that my dad supplied me with and changed over the ones that were already in there and soldered the wire.

That's ok happy to help. Its funny exporting things to the USA when I usually buy from there because they have everything.

The red book was a colouring book released in the UK. I have a high-quality scan of the cover in my Knight Rider Cover Gallery:

Go to 2005 Updates > Cover Gallery

There was also a reprint with a yellow cover (different shot of David and K.I.T.T.) also included in the gallery.
