    This rocks so, so, hard. Seriously, great job man.

    I've wanted Skyhammer as the dropship from Aliens personally.

    Would love to see you attempt more 80s b8 along the lines of cars from Miami Vice, Magnum P.I., et cetera. May the 80s never die

    Very nice mod! I believe it is possible to use the circuit chip within the Aoshima Knight Rider model car to install within your figure. The circuit board is obviously too big and will need to be cut down to size; and you will also have to use your own SMDs. It may be a painful bit of work, but no more than what you've already done!

    (alternatively, it may be just easier to install a common LED or 2 to a battery instead of using the circuit board. maybe not as cool, but still nice).

    Where is KARR??!

    also, I hope this inspires someone to make a pre-colored version of these guys! I KNEW someone would make a KITT out of them.

    Amazing work, and a great use of the mold. Looks like it rolled off the factory floor!
    I'm curious as to how you find the experience of painting this mold, though. I was tempted to do something similar, but the reviews I saw made it seem like it was a bit of a headache to transform....

    He looks great! I was going to ask about the rear window, because I swore that KITT had louvers back there, but I was totally wrong. Entirely accurate!
    The mouth and rich Corinthian leather are both great touches.

    I love this so much! The alt mode is so spot on, and the mouth/radio apparatus is genius!
