Playmobil is going deep into the ’80s once again with the debut of the 70924 Knight Rider K.I.T.T. vehicle set. The 3-inch scale Pontiac Trans Am vehicle features lights and sound, headlights that go up and down, a rotating license plate, and a removable hood. It also includes figures of Bonnie Barstow, Devon Miles, and Michael Knight.
Playmobil did a great job with the details, just like they did with the recent James Bond Aston Martin DB-5 Goldfinger Edition car and A-Team Van sets ($89.99 each). Pre-orders for the Playmobil 70924 Knight Rider K.I.T.T. are live here at Entertainment Earth now for $89.99 with free U.S. shipping set for August 2022.
“”Right away, Michael!” The most famous talking car of the 1980s is back with the Playmobil 70924 Knight Rider K.I.T.T. with Figures. Complete with Bonnie Barstow, Devon Miles, and Michael Knight, this set once again proves our theory that Germans love David Hasselhoff. Complete with lights and sound, this 3-inch scale vehicle includes articulated figures you can drive around or have around to pretend to repair the chatty Pontiac Firebird Trans Am. Headlights go up and down, too!”
On a related note, Playmobil recently took on LEGO and some of the massive Star Wars sets in their Ultimate Collector’s Series lineup with the 70548 Star Trek U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 Playset. It’s being touted as “the biggest and most deluxe Playmobil playset created up to this point”. It also has a price tag to match. However, you can order one here at Entertainment Earth for $424.99 (15% off) with free US shipping as part of their New Years Sale.
How big is the playset? When complete the starship will measure 42-inches long and 18-inches wide.
