    Dang my emotional attachment is up and down with this, Kingdom Tracks mould, Runamuck mould, voyager ALL sound bloody awful to me.

    To be worthwhile (to me) KITT has to fit with my current Deluxe cars and not have one of those faux chests.

    I wish we would get something concrete.

    It annoys me that I was never able to find this.

    There's no way the collab would reference 30-year-old Tales of the Jedi comics... but it would be cool if the collab referenced 30-year-old Tales of the Jedi comics.

    My only real hope for a transforming KITT would be having the bar on his chest.

    I would hope KITT would be a new mould since a lot of the recent collars have been. I would want him to be leaner and sleek, evoking his Trans Am mode, rather than something as wide and squat as a G1 carbot.

    Or a cylon visor, retain the gimmick, but put it in some other place. If his face somehow was also an hommage to a cylon, that would be so awesome.
    My biggest fear is, that his head sucks. KITT never had a face, except for his car front and he's so fucking iconic. The bar is high.

    Considering the nostalgia wave for the 80's still seems to be going, let's face it, the KITT collab is going to be the one everyone remembers and is the most iconic. Don't know if they have or can easily get the GM car license but It'll be as close as damn possible. As some people have already brought up, if it's a voyager it might include the super pursuit mode in alt mode as the engineering would probably bring it up to that price point. Unlikely it'll have electronics but maybe a mechanical sliding clear plastic bar connected to the wheels that makes it do the swishy light thing when it rolls?

    Ecto 1 is a Caddy, right? That's owned by GM, so we should be good.

    Doubt Hasbro would be able to make KITT look like a Cylon without running in to some copyright/trademark issues with whoever has BSG.

    Dude... Hasbro licensed the Pontiac / Camaro front end for the GI Joe Collab Thunder Machine Soundwave. There should be no issue with the GM licensing.

    It has to be a fully licensed 1983 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am with the altered body. Otherwise it simply won't work.

    It's Universal, same as Knight Rider.

    If they could make a Cylon transformer why wouldn't they just do that instead of making KITT (a good guy) look like a Cylon (a bad guy).

    I wouldn't want KITT to look like a Cylon because a Cylon doesn't look like KITT. They have the same visor thingie, but that's it. Cyclons don't feel like a good visual fit for KITT.

    Honestly I always imagined a KITT Transformer to look like Animated Road Rocket:

    Make the visor into the whoo-whoop thing and paint it all black and that's kinda what I envision.

    Cylon inspired, not exactly a Cylon.

    That's what I also envision for him. Maybe the mouth piece with vents like a Cylon.

    Well, Glen A. Larson just liked the red moving light, that's why he used it for both the Cylons and KITT. So, I wouldn't mind a little of that referenced in this toy. Would be a nice nod to the fans. Because in that way they are connected. But as I said, I wouldn't want him to look exactly like a Cylon. That would clash stylistically.

    So, uh, while contemplating how they're going to make KITT, I got to thinking: how hard would it be to take the engineering from AWE Striker Bumblebee, shrink it down to deluxe, and retool it as a Flintmobile?

    It would be a bit weird to me if the face, or maybe the chest at least, didn’t incorporate the Voice Modulator. To young me that *was* KITT, even moreso than the hood scanner.
