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. This 1:64 scale collector's edition sits in an acrylic case nestled in distinctive Knight Industries packaging with scanner lights and three different iconic K.I.T.T. phrases ($40). A standard edition vehicle will also be available wherever toys are sold. Mattel has a robust schedule of panels, signings and activities to offer at SDCC, including the life-size K.I.T.T car on display in their booth (#3029).

The first new line of merchandise in years for "The Six Million Dollar Man" comes from Bif Bang Pow! with a lunchbox replica of Oscar Goldman's briefcase that includes the all-new Dr. Rudy Wells 8-inch EMCE action figure. Richard Anderson, who played Oscar in the series, will be signing autographs on Thursday from 10:30 am - 2:30 pm at the Entertainment Earth booth (#2343).

Celebrating its fifth year at SDCC, Hallmark will debut a gold-painted Classic "Battlestar Galactica" Cylon Centurion ornament. This variant of last year's popular ornament is Hallmark's first Comic-Con exclusive to feature sound, and is a limited edition item with a run of 750 Keepsake Ornaments ($25 each). Hallmark will also have Comic-Con-exclusive Keepsake Ornaments and visits with a Keepsake Ornament artist at their booth (#2913-H).

ANOVOS Productions will debut original, limited edition "Battlestar Galactica" fine art lithos prints from Dave Dorman, one of the world's foremost genre artists, with his first-ever "Battlestar Galactica" paintings.
