neps: June 2008 Archives

As you have already heard, we are going to be at Comic Con! To support this, we are producing tshirts and buttons that will be gifting to the cast and crew, and wearing at the event itself. We've also decided to make these products available to the public. There are two items:

Knight Rider Online Comic Con Shirt:

Uniting the past with the present is shirt contains both the Knight 2000 and the Knight 3000. This custom tee is printed on American Apparel Black shirt with red ink, professionally silk screened.

This is a unique piece, so once the initial run is done, it's done! Price is $15 (plus $4 shipping to the US, $8 for international) +$2 if you need XXL or larger.

Four pack of Buttons:

These four pack of retro themed buttons will look great on any piece of apparel!

This is a minimum run of 24 shirts - of which we have 5 shirts left - but if the demand necessitates, we can easily add more shirts. But I need a total count in the next 36 hrs, so we don't incur any additional print fees or miss the Comic Con deadline. $4 for the set (plus $1 for US - $3 for international shipping)

Pre-Order yours today! (orders will ship the week of July 28th) (payments securely accepted by paypal!)

I'm posting this quick video to point something out with the Mio Knight Rider GPS. I thought the device only had 3 led bars on each side. Turns out there is a lot more, I just needed to turn the volume way up!

Check it out and KITT Rules for more.

When we were first contacted by Mio about their Knight Rider device, we couldn't wait till the day that we could finally tell you. An officially licensed GPS unit with the original voice of KITT behind it, how could you lose?

Thankfully, you can't! We have been very fortunate to get this exclusive extensive look at the Mio Knight Rider GPS. No longer will you have a boring list of computerized voices telling you directions on your GPS - now you can have KITT himself!

It's the first time since the TV Movie Knight Rider 2000 - has William Daniels been involved in anything officially Knight Rider. In fact it had been rumored for quite some time that Daniels wanted nothing to do with the series. We are thrilled that this was not the case, and now we have this device here, complete with newly recorded dialog by Mr. Daniels (this isn't reused TV clipings, it's 100% original recordings!)

One of the great unique features with this concept, is that KITT will address the driver by their first name. Simply set your name from the pre-recorded list of hundreds, and off you go. You can be Michael if you want to be a purist, but if your name is Aaron, Joe or David, you can have that personalized experience. (Unfortunately Devon, Bonnie, Wilton are missing from the list, but Mio hopes to address this error)

They've also taken several design cues from the Knight 2000. The device has dual nose type designs on the left and right, complete with a red type of scanner insert. However, the actual use of this scanners LEDs is to be KITTs voice box. It's a pretty neat effect, and initially we were bummed that it wasn't more accurate to the voice box to the series, but in the end the effect still felt the same.

The device is going to be for Canada and the US, however additional maps are available for purchase (for our global fans) via Mio's website for their other devices, so we imagine this unit would be the same.

We must admit it was pretty enjoyable driving around with KITT, that we kept getting lost on purpose, just so we could hear him make more announcements. Which was probably the only annoyance - we wish KITT would talk more. Have KITT nag me when I get lost, have him keep his scanners peeled and determine the best course to our destination - keep him vocal, keep him fun. Michael always told KITT to shadup, we love to be at the place to do that too.

MSRP is about $270, and we expect the final product to be released in the fall. Check out KITTRules for more information.
