Entertainment Earth

If you're like me, there's a solid chance that you've been raising your little ones right - peppering their modern-day pop culture with a sprinkling of retro-cool goodness. A quick glance at The Rock Father homepage will usually reveal at least one 2013 representation of something from my own childhood. How many times have I mentioned KNIGHT RIDER on this site? The show has been mentioned in at least 13 articles so far (14 counting this one), and my 3½-year-old loves it. Now comes a pair of toys that every child of the 80s who is now a parent themselves needs to own (for their kids, of course).

At long last, after being teased for a year, Entertainment Earth has their Exclusive Edition of K.I.T.T. from KNIGHT RIDER. Made by Diamond Select Toys, this edition comes complete with a Michael Knight action figure that you can only get here. I had to show major restraint when I ran across this car at Toys "R" Us - a version that comes devoid of a driver. I knew that if I'd bought it then, my daughter would be asking why there's not a Michael Knight with it. Even kids know that they need David Hasselhoff.

EE Exclusive KNIGHT RIDER K.I.T.T. 

DC72964lgThe Hoff is back! Based on the 1982 TV series Knight Rider, this is the best toy KITT money can buy. Not only does it feature spinning wheels and opening doors, it has lights and sounds, too. The lights pulsate with 5 LEDs in the front sensor bar! But wait, there's more! It's a limited edition, roughly 13-inch long vehicle based on a 1982 Pontiac Trans-Am that's compatible with many 3 3/4-inch scale action figures. And we included one! Get your very own 3 3/4-inch David Hasslehoff as Michael Knight Action Figure... available only in this set!

Additionally, the Entertainment Earth Exclusive BACK TO THE FUTURE II Delorean Time Machine is available once more. What makes this one special is the "hover" feature and additional details like the barcode license plate and Mr. Fusion. We have the BTTF I model here at Rock Father HQ, and Diamond Select did a fantastic job with it.

EE Exclusive BACK TO THE FUTURE II Delorean

DC21012lgThe toy you always wanted is finally here. Based on the 1989 Back to the Future II movie, this is the best toy DeLorean money can buy. Not only does it feature classic DMC engineering (like the gull-wing doors) and Doc Brown's own special modifications, but our version of the DeLorean automobile also has the 2015 hover conversion kit. That's right, our exclusive vehicle has wheels that pop out for "flight mode"! The wheels spin, the doors open, and its plastic construction feels just like the toy you always wished you had. Don't miss your chance at owning one of America's finest motorcars ... with a special futuristic, time-traveling twist! It's a limited edition. 13-inch long vehicle that's compatible with many 3 3/4-inch scale action figures* (not included).

Speaking of KITT and the Delorean... I took the little ones out to the Volo Auto Museum a couple of weeks ago to pay both a visit...
