Diamond Select Toys has been releasing Knight Rider merch for a bit now, and at the top of that list are the KITT 1/15th scale vehicles. These replicas of the original cars include KITT, KARR, and KITT Super Pursuit Mode – which we will take a look at today. Check out our thoughts and over 30 high res images of KITT in pursuit after the break!
A little background on the 1/15th KITT SPM from DST’s website:
Super Pursuit Mode engaged! This 1/15 scale replica of the Knight Industries Two Thousand (KITT) from the popular TV show Knight Rider measures 14 inches long and features working lights and sound effects from the show, including the distinctive voice of KITT! This special SPM edition depicts KITT with all of his speed-enhancing gadgets extended, and includes exclusive SPM dialogue and sound effects! Get yours today, because they’ll go fast!
Most of what you need to know about SPM KITT is in pictures. He is a well crafted sturdy offering for Knight Rider aficionados with a fair amount of lights and sounds tossed in as a bonus. Sounds include voice overs from KITT (original voice actor or very close) and sound effects, both are dead on. Additional points include: a high gloss wax job on the black paint, has some serious weight to it, rubber wheels, a choice of 4 license plate stickers, and additional internal control panel stickers. The SPM mode details are non-retractable, so what you see here is permanent. For non SPM – you’ll have to grab the 1/15th scale original KITT. Gotcha! I’ll probably be going back to get the classic non-SPM version now that I’ve interacted with this one. Holding it in your hands and messing with the lights and sounds I think seals the deal.
As a casual but eager Knight Rider fan I was happy to get a hold of this guy, it’s a definite improvement over my 80s Knight Rider 2000 Voice Car. 80’s Michael can’t quite fit into the new KITTs from DST, so I officially request 1/15th scale Michael Knight figures. In every outfit he ever wore in the show. In a box set.
Overall, great pick up. Check out the glamor shots below!
