    will the robot head be K.I.T.T.s dash display or the Hoff

    I know its gonna be the Original Knight Rider but what if we got cursed with the Remake K.I.T.T. from 2008? That way they Has/Tak can retool the Chase/Cliffjumper mold... KR2023.jpg

    Well, that and the fact the other Collabs were HEAVY retools. I think Gigawatt was the least retooled...

    Gonna doom predict the Star Wars one isn't one of the iconic ships but whatever new vehicle Disney has in one of their shows.

    It'd be funny if KITT has a robot mode based on the one KARR had in the reboot series.

    Wow. Just realizing all my predictions for these are cursed....

    You've got a point there with the stunticons. Never thought of that. It's a great idea, if they use Breakdown (another Lamborghini Sideswipe). Dead End has those revealing headlights, which Kitt has the pop up consealing ones, so that wouldn't quite match as good as the lambos who have both concealing headlights and the flat hood. Wildrider's whole back end doesn't match with Kitt's, so I don't think that would fit either. As for the others you suggested, those aren't G1 and not identifiable to me as old school/legendary/iconic original as Kitt. Again it's just my humble opinion but I feel the closest transformer that should be used would be an orig g1 to match an original kitt. I would have to pass if they didn't use a g1 character or if it was a new mold that didn't look like the orig kitt.

    For $50, the Knight Rider collab better damn well be either KITT and the FLAG Mobile Unit; have a working scanner bar, dash lights, and licensed voice clips; or transform into Super Pursuit Mode. And there better be a KARR repaint with Cullen's voice clips (which would be inaccurate since Cullen voiced KARR when it was identical to KITT, not in the later seasons when they gave it a 2-tone paint and voiced it by legendary Paul Frees, but c'mon). Son of a bitch I'm gonna buy so many of this if they don't blow it, Knight Rider was my thing as a kid even before Transformers or Go-Bots came out. KITT better not have some stupid human-style head either, it should be like a Shockwave-style head but with the vocorder lights for the face.

    As for Star Wars, while it is most definitely my thing now, none of the Star Wars Transformers worked out because they had to shoehorn real characters into robot modes, and they had the Hasbro Star Wars team do the designing. If they can avoid that, maybe it'll be good but I suspect this will turn out more like the GI Joe collabs which aren't especially good robots.

    My wife and I were literally talking about Feeney and William Daniels this morning and I made an offhand comment that we might be getting a William Daniels Transformer and here it is. Clearly I am psychic. Amazing.

    What if Kitt is a head master with Hoff.
    Too much to ask for…

    KITT/KARR in the vein of Punch/Counterpunch would rock.
