As I posted before, KITT is at SDCC.
The exclusive is an amazing toy. They did a heck of a job with the lights and noises. I'll get a video of it up soon.
David Hasselhoff was in attendance yesterday and I got to meet him! He signed my KITT for me.
He was really nice and took to time to talk to me. I gave him a DukesCollector card and he said he likes to talk with Dukes fans and would like to attend a Dukes event. Let's make this happen Alma. Maybe more exciting than meeting the Hoff, well no, equally as exciting as meeting the Hoff...is the variant KARR exclusive. While in line for the signing, I talked to some Knights of the West Coast club members. They seem to have a great club. They said there was a rumor that there were variant versions of the exclusive KITT that were KARRs. KARR was the prototype for KITT on the show and was sorta KITT's evil twin. They all said they they bought several and didn't get a signal one, and weren't even sure if the rumors were true.
When I got back to the hotel room last night, I check and lo and behold, I had this bad boy in my giant red Mattel bag:
I am so happy that I got one of these. And that I met Michael Knight. What a great day. Have I even mentioned Dukes in this post? Once I get all these pics and stories posted, I'll talk about getting into an argument with a toy creator from Diamond Select Toys/Art Asylum about Knight Rider being more popular than Dukes. That dude is nuts. He makes great toys, but we Dukes fans know which show is bigger, and it ain't Knight Rider.
