Batteries Included: New Knight Rider and Munsters Electronic Vehicles Coming Soon!
August 23, 2012

In recent years, Diamond Select Toys has dazzled toy car collectors with their realistic lights-and-sounds 1:15-scale replicas of the time machine from the Back to the Future trilogy. Well, DST recently announced that they were going back into production on three of the time machines — the original, the 1950s version and the Old West version — and now they’ve announced two more flashing, revving, honking and talking cars that are joining the line: Knight Rider’s KITT and The Munsters’ Munster Koach!

The Munster Koach is a 1:15 scale replica of the family Koach from the popular 1960s TV show The Munsters. Custom ordered by Lily Munster and combining a dragster and a hearse, it measures 14 inches long and features working lights and sounds from the show, including a revving engine and squealing tires! With fully detailed moving parts, you’ll find yourself humming the theme song every time you look at it.

Our 1:15 scale replica of the Knight Industries Two Thousand (KITT) from the popular TV show Knight Rider also measures 14 inches long and features working lights and sound effects from the show, including the distinctive voice of KITT as well as his famous Turbo Boost!

K.I.T.T. includes the following phrases:
– “I am K.I.T.T.”
– “All systems functioning”
– “Activate Turbo Boost.”
– “Michael, we are losing power.”
– “Auto Cruise Mode.”
– “Michael, I detect vehicles.”
– “After all, we’re only human.”

…and these sound effects:
– Turbo Boost
– Scanner
– Revving Engine
– Start Up and Peel Out

With fully detailed moving parts, you’ll find yourself wishing you could climb into it and take it for a spin! Pre-order the Koach and KITT at your local comic shop or your favorite online retailer. And if your KITT isn’t complete without his partner, look for the exclusive Michael Knight edition at <a href=”http://www.entertainmentearth.com/prodinfo.asp?number=DC72964″>Entertainment Earth!</a>

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
