PBH I go to TRU quite often at least a few times a week if you ever want one of those KITT''s let me know it would only cost you the 10 bucks and shipping, I hate scalpers I only sell them for what I paid for them in the store, nothing more, nothing less. that goes for any of you other guys that want a KITT :good:.

Man that would be fantastic!!! I absolutely want one! I can't believe that they're only charging $10.00! Do they also have the other 2 (SPM KITT & KARR)? Would you take a PayPal payment?

Thank you so much!!!!!!

Hi, Zach from Diamond Select. Wanted to just pop in and say "hi."

FYI, SPM KITT and KARR are ONLY at comic shops and specialty stores, not at Toys R Us, so don't look for them there. You can find your nearest comic shop at: http://www.comicshoplocator.com

I know Toysrus.com did get in some SPM KITTs at one point, but I don't think they are going to be available in stores. They do still have the regular KITT online, but if you want it to be mint-on-card, you may not want to go that route -- their packing is not always crush-proof.

Online, Luke's Toy Store is a dedicated Minimates dealer. I'm not seeing KARR, which was only available as part of an assortment, but he has SPM KITT for $9.50.

http://lukestoystore.com/other-minimates/

You can also look for SPM KITT and KARR at EntertainmentEarth.com, ActionFigureXpress.com and BigBadToyStore.com

Hope that helps you find them.

PBH I am going to TRU on saturday so if they have any KITT's I will snag one for you and if any of you guys want one same deal as for PBH, 10 dollars for KITT and the $$$ for shipping, just send me a PM with your zip code so I can get a shipping quote, I prefer to use Priority Mail but if you want regular cheap postage (and a longer wait) that is fine too.

You guys are lucky to even have the Minimates Knight Rider there at TRU.. No Knight Rider stuff here in Singapore... Couldn't find any minimates of KITT or KARR. I had to spend a bit more for a Minimates KITT at eBay and ship it in from the US.. Hope to get it soon!

Got mine a while ago at TRU, my only beef with it is that the dash stickers wouldn't stick, like there was an oil residue on the dash (had to use miniscule amounts of rubber cement to get them to stick) other than that, gorgeous little piece :) Goes great with my SPM KITT :)

My KARR minimate only has a voicebox sticker on the dash. I don't have the guages
or the TV on mine. Are these something that come with it and we put them on? Mine
is still in the package and I wasn't going to open it. It was a gag gift from my brother
for my birthday. he said they didn't have KITT so he grabbed this one.

Yes, you have to stick the decals on the dash yourself... Decals must be applied for the tail lights, license plate and foglights too. The dashboard stickers can be very tricky, but with tweezers, it shouldn't be a problem. Some even resorted to unscrewing the car to stick the decals...

That's weird because my voicebox decal is already installed. the rest is not.

I know if I decide to open it, I will be cutting the tail light decals down the middle
and swicthing them up so the tail lights are on the sides, not in the middle of the
car.

it would have been nice to NOT have a 1 TV dash with two tv decals though.

There is no decals for the voice box. The color details on the voice box appear to be painted and not stickers...

Just received the Minimates SPM KITT and KARR today! I'm especially very impressed by the details of the SPM KITT. Not counting the SPM model kit that Aoshima had released, I think this is the first ready built SPM KITT toy! It won't be till next year will a 1/15 SPM KITT be released. From the way the Minimates are, I really hope they would do a Minimates KITT in convertible mode which has never been done before in any scale!
