I doubt KITT is going to have a "Rock'em Sock'em mode" to stand up to KARR that way, at least I hope not... There's really no reason for it and KARR shouldn't be a Mustang either. Going from the images KARR is very limited to what he can change into and it's much more simplistic. Just like a prototype...
The new and again improved evil's advertisement is currently too long and too badass to display here. But let's just say that with now 50% more evil, this **** is great! :twisted: :skar:

VERY VERY COOL!

If you guys hear closely right in the beginning, it sounds like Cullen's voice!

Also, I love the pic with KITT at night driving with the HID's! It's a very nice touch to the original IMO!

It is Cullen. But does it have any connection to this version of KARR? Probably not.

btw the turbo boost looks like the same old cheap vfx we have been seeing. If you look closely, the car looks cheaply added to the scene and when KI3T clears the construction site, watch the construction workers... they dance looking straight forward from the time turbo boost happens till the end without turning around to look at what just happened.

not impressed at all...

^ Peter Cullen's voice is at the very start of the reel, NOT during the KARR clip.

Quote from the news page.........

And now here we are with our first look at KARR in the episode set to air on January 21st, and we've just wet ourself.

Damn I hate it when that happens, luckily I have a stash of same colored boxers, she'll never noticed I made a boo boo in my shorts :lol:

Please dont tell guys :oops: please?

Actually I dont care if you do, Karr looks awesome, im excused.

yuck, the new karr looks awful, it reminds me of one of the robots from transformers, why couldn't they just use another mustang without doing the robot transformation.

Aww man! That’s what I get for taking a three hour plane flight! Everyone else was running to have a smoke I was running to get my KRO fix. Ahhhh that’s the good stuff.
Okay so maybe I already saw KARR… *people throw rocks* And yes he is totaly cool and only gets cooler - but that airplane was awesome! I’m looking forward to that episode, that’s gonna be a ride!

Those 4 seconds of KARR has me more excited about Knight Rider than the original series, the backddor pilot and the first 8 episodes put together.....
Can't effin wait!

ps - the airplane crash is awesome!

WOW!

Though how on earth KI3T will fight that thing off is going to be VERY interesting!

Not a very nice introduction to KARR though - showing us his A$$!!!

On the http://masterkeyfilms.com/ website the Credits listing is off my screen. Anyone see the full list?

Love clicking the pictures for the closer view. These are great pictures.

i still am not a fan of this KARR thing, its stupid as someone said in a post above somewhere 'this looks like a robot from transformers' lol

seriously knight rider shouldnt be about robots,,i understand the writers of knight rider might have wanted to do something different,but this is just way over the top

KARR shouldnt be able to turn into a robot, i know im going to get blasted on here for saying that but i dont care nothings gonna change my mind on what i think about this whole KARR thing

Why dont they just change the name of the series to Transformers! I mean thats what it looks like to me & nobody can really deny that it basiclly is a transformer knock-off. Wow this just keeps getting worse & worse! Whats next Goliath turns into a transforming semi? Oh right thats in another series, His name is something like optim something, sorry i forgot!

I have an opinion on this footage but there are two sides to it.

One, is that the FX look really good and it got me excited. But on the flipside, it's a bit weird to see that this is what KARR has become now and I'm not sure whether I am liking that or not. Whether it's the same KARR or a different one is no longer relevant, given the footage, because just by looking at 2 seconds of that, the feeling of the old KARR went. I got a different vibe about it.

I'm a guy of simple tastes, I'd have preferred him to just be a car and not make everything big and complicated.

Still, the FX look amazing for a tv show and I couldn't even tell that was all CG so well done to the FX team.

This could just be the thing to save the show even if not all the original fans will be happy with it. But I suppose you can't please everyone.

Btw, it's cool they included Cullen's voice in the reel but there is still no guarantee that he will be voicing "KARR". I'll be happy once I see a confirmation if there is one.

The robot does look cool, BUT, if KARR was a Mustang, fine, and if he is a robot fine, but NOT both. If so, it should be a Transformers crossover. I keep seeing everyone here writing about crossover episodes, here you go. The Turbo Boost wasn't impressive thus far, but I'll wait till I see the finished version. :|
