HOT TOYS 1/6 scale KITT?

Post by rotorious13b » Mon Feb 20, 2012 10:58 am

I'm sure some of you are familiar with Hot Toys, but for those who are not, Hot Toys is a manufacturer of HIGHLY detailed, collectible figures. Typically they specialize in 1/6th scale Movie figures; Batman, Superman, Bruce Lee, X-Men, etc. They've even done Michael Jackson. All of these are of incredible quality, and are SPOT ON in their likenesses. The new Christopher Reeve Superman especially, is UNBELIEVABLE. It looks exactly like him. Same with Bruce Lee, both the Christian Bale and Michael Keaton Batmans, and all of their others as well.

More recently, they've done some 1/6th scale vehicles, namely the Dark Knight Batmobile (Tumbler) and the Batpod. I cant even begin to describe the sheer size and level of meticulous detail of these items, so I've attached some links to pics and youtube videos. They're incredible.

Which brings me to why I've made this post. I think we, as a Knight Rider community, need to band together and convince Hot Toys to make a 1/6th scale KITT and possibly Michael (David)! Can you imagine a 1/6th scale KITT/KARR with working scanner and lit dash?!? I have the Ertl 1/18th, and it's nice, and I'm sure the Hotwheels one will be even nicer...But a Hot Toys 1/6th would be in a completely different league...in both size and level of detail, I think.

I'd love to hear everyone's thoughts on this. Does anyone have any experience contacting a company for something like this? A petition maybe?

Let's do what we can to get this done!

Thanks for reading,

-Phil

Hi Rotorious,

I saw that you thought you'd posted this in the wrong section, so I've merged the two threads into the creative section for you. :good:

Matt
Welcome aboard the Knight 2000.

Thank you. What's all this, it looks like Darth Vader's bathroom?
