If they are, indeed, going to do an "Elite" version, I'd love to see it not only more accurate, but with a light up dash, and they should definitely fix that horrible scanner and make it more accurate. Heck, if Aoshima can do it...
I also prefer the Season 1/2 nose, but don't know if they would change that. Finally, while I'm dreaming, how about a couple of KITT phrases with a flashing voice box. These aren't really hard requests, but I don't know if HotWheels cares enough to implement any of these.
Honestly, with the QC and wanton shortcuts to get a product out in the toy field, I seriously doubt they are going to put a whole lot of effort in the minute details we as collectors, are going to want, for the price they want.
This is based on what I have seen so far (Aoshima excluded) since the first release of KITT (the joke of a matchbox car with a camaro butt end and red sticker on the nose...where's the raised hood??????) Mattel 1/64 scale got the dash right....Charawheels got the body dead on, but since then laziness and cost cutting has given us replicas/toys that are not really up to par with what they want for them. I would love nothing better than to get an actual true to faithful KITT, from scanner, to seats, to L-plate but I fear that will not happen unless WE do it ourselves.
Just my two cents.
