Knight 2000 Turbo Boost Launcher

  • PLEASE FOLLOW THE RETROIST

Sometimes you don’t even have to ask. I never asked for Kenner’s Knight 2000 Turbo Boost Launcher. Grandma just gave it to me for Christmas. But I loved it just the same.

The Turbo Boost Launcher imitates KITT’s turbo power, which was demonstrated on just about every episode of Knight Rider. It was fairly simple to operate. You put the Matchbox-like KITT car in the launcher then pushed it forward as hard as you could go. KITT would come screaming out of it and careen across the room. There wasn’t much else to it, but isn’t that enough?

It’s going to be hard to find this one. There aren’t many active ebay auctions for it, and I could only find these few pictures. But I had it at one point in time, and it was almost as great as the show.

    I had a set that included a tractor/trailer – you could launch KITT through a breakaway section of the hauler’s trailer. It was pretty boss.

    Your grandma was awesome!!!!!!!!! My grandma gave me a Mego John Boy and Sue Ellen Walton which, in retrospect, is wayyyy cooler to me now then it was back then.

    I think I chipped a tooth with that thing, once. It was shocking just how much velocity you could get out of it.
