UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - July 3, 2012 - NBCUniversal Television Consumer Products announces the launch of new exclusive products with exciting celebrity appearances and events at the 2012 San Diego Comic-Con International (SDCC), the largest comic book and popular arts convention in the world. Products based on Classic-TV series including "Knight Rider," which originally aired from 1982 - 1986, "The Six Million Dollar Man," which aired from 1974 to 1978, and the classic "Battlestar Galactica," that aired between 1978 - 1979, are scheduled to debut at the show. All are licensed by NBCUniversal Television Consumer Products Group, and select items will be promoted by celebrities from the series who will sign autographs for fans at the show.

"Our partners have outdone themselves this year with new and exciting exclusives for many of our beloved series," said Christopher Lucero, Director of Global Consumer Products. "I couldn't be happier to see K.I.T.T., Steve Austin, The Galactica crew and Agent Lattimer make such a tremendous impact at this year's show, both for myself and for all our fans."

K.I.T.T., the famous talking car from the classic series "Knight Rider," will soon be a Hot Wheels(R) vehicle from Mattel, available to fans everywhere. A very special edition of K.I.T.T. is coming to SDCC in celebration of the 30th anniversary of Knight Rider.

A standard edition vehicle will also be available wherever toys are sold.
