I have a little confession. Despite all the awesome that comes out of Funko, there has never been a Pop! Vinyl figure that I took one look at and said, “I absolutely must have that!” And believe me, I own hundreds of them and there’s many more that I’d like to own. But until today, there has never been a single figure that I’ve absolutely just thrown money at the screen for… until today. The undisputed Greatest Television Series of All-Time™* is finally getting the Pop! Vinyl treatment, and it’s coming through the Pop! Rides line. The KNIGHT RIDER Michael Knight with K.I.T.T. figure pays tribute to the excellent 1982-1986 NBC television series that brought audiences along for “a shadowy flight into the dangerous world of a man who does not exist.” It also let kids like me know that “one man can make a difference,” while inspiring much of the automotive and AI technology that exists in the world today. Available for pre-order via my friends at Entertainment Earth (an affiliate) for an August/September delivery, this is sure to become a sought-after addition to any Pop! Collection, and one desired by all with good taste.
Funko Says: You can now collect Michael Knight and his artificially intelligent Pontiac Firebird Trans Am named K.I.T.T. as a Funko Pop! Rides! Defeat villains like K.A.R.R., Garthe Knight and Goliath and relive the magic of the series that gave David Hasselhoff his first big break. This Knight Rider Michael Knight with KITT Pop! Vinyl Vehicle #50 comes packaged in a window display box. Pre-order now!
Despite numerous attempts at rebooting the series, KNIGHT RIDER has yet to receive a proper reboot. As I’ve mentioned countless times in the past, I am completely available to pen scripts or throw on the acting cap, should KNIGHT RIDER really make a proper comeback!
*KNIGHT RIDER has been deemed The Greatest Television Series of All-Time™ by The Rock Father™.
