KNIGHT RIDER KITT with Voicebox 1-18 Scale Hot Wheels Elite Mattel

This is the new Hot Wheels Elite K.I.T.T. 1:18 scale die-cast replica based on the iconic 1982 Pontiac Trans Am as featured in the 1980’s Knight Rider series.

K.I.T.T. is an iconic car that captivated the hearts of many with its sleek stylish design and witty humor. Before the sunny beaches of Baywatch, David “The Hoff” Hasselhoff patrolled the streets as Michael Knight with his trusted vehicle, KITT. KITT was no ordinary Pontiac Trans Am.

This black beauty was heavily modified with numerous features that included an extremely durable shell and frame, and control by a computer with artificial intelligence. The car used as K.I.T.T. in the series was a customized 1982 Pontiac Trans Am sports model that cost US $100,000 to build.

Will include phrases (authentic quotes from K.I.T.T. from the TV series), car sounds, and the LED eye will light up. The interior dash will light up as well.

You can now own a perfectly scaled model of it for quite a few zero’s less. $340.99 to be exact.

You can pre-order this now, although unfortunately you’ll have to wait a full year before you get it as it won’t be available until February 2014.

Ghostbusters PKE Prop Replica

This is Mattel’s 1:1 scale prop replica of the PKE Meter from Ghostbusters.

This prop replica features light sequences from both Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II, adjustable LED and screen animation speeds, three screen displays as seen in the films (diagonal, off, arc) and opening wings!

It also comes with a really, really cool storage crate which by itself would make an awesome collector’s display piece:

You’ll find these for about $94 on Amazon and you’ll also find it at a bit higher price from some other outlets.

However, one is available on Ebay right now with a buy it now price of only $70, and an even lower starting bid of only $50. That’s a pretty good deal given it’s a brand new prop replica that the seller says was only opened once to check that it was in perfect brand new working order.

Go here and see if you can score it at a lower than usual price:

Check out the first ever Back to the Future Hover Board Prop Replica.

This is a 1:1 scale movie accurate down to the smallest detail hover board replica that is fully sanctioned by Universal Studios.

Measures approximately 28″ x 8″ x 3″ and includes authentic “whooshing” sounds sampled directly from the Back to the Future films.

Interestingly, Mattel are advertising that this Hoverboard uses technology that helps it to really glide. To quote Mattel:

Rest assured your Hoverboard will gently glide over most level surfaces (it will not, however, work on water)

Now, that’s pretty cool, except for the fact that this is not a real hoverboard. It won’t glide like the one you see in the movie and, in fact, it barely glides over “most” surfaces at all. It does take batteries that are supposed to help the technology that’s in it to glide, but if you buy it to glide around on it, you’ll be a little disappointed.

So what I’m saying is, this is a damn cool item to add to your movie prop replica collection, but don’t expect to go zipping about the streets on it.

But to compensate for it’s lack of real Back to the Future hover technology it comes with a cool little mini 6″ replica hoverboard. That’s kind of neat.

Note that the stand in the above image does not come with the replica.

You can get these from a variety of sources, but let me just say they are not all equal when it comes to price. So I’ll give you a few links below and you can follow your nose to get the best price:

Oh, and if you get one of these, why not complete the bundle with a Marty McFly Hat prop replica.

Now that the original Batmobile is for sale, I thought it might be interesting to look into what prop replicas are floating around based on the icon 1966 Batmobile that most of us will actually be able to afford.
