    Whew! Thanks for all the input guys! Overwhelming, but for more than just "looks" reasons Ive decided to go with Spoiler #2. The one major factor is how its played out in his weapon.
    I have pnemonia so messing with paint and styrene shavings aint exactly doctors recomendations so updates will be a bit delayed.
    Again thanks tons for all your suggestions. This community ROCKS!!!

    The large wheel wells or fins on the back of the Jazz toy make both spoilers look odd.

    I like the G1 spoiler out of the 2 choices.

    How about posting a pic of the car with no spoiler just to get a look at it.

    It ain't Roddy without a spoiler, and this is Animated, so let's go HUGE, I vote #2!

    Definitely #2 - it's got the exaggeratedness(?) you need for an Animated design. :D

    I would suggest the first spoiler. Its exagerated, but not overly-so. The second one looks cool, but in my opinion it sticks out way too much (even for a Hotrod/Rodimus character)

    The figure itself looks amazing so far, can't wait to see it finished!

    Thanks for posting the pic without the spoilers.

    Based on that, perhaps a spoiler like this might work. Shaped a little more Hot Rod like, of course.

    Either that or maybe consider a spoiler like those found above the rear windows of vans or suvs.

    It's a great looking custom so far. I look forward to seeing how this turns out.

    yeah, pic 2 = Hot rod. it's the jagged corners and 80-ish-ness feel that works the best of the selections.

    I have to go with #1. first off its an homage to the origional and I feel it looks just plain more cartoonish.

    I like the second. The first makes it look less distinct from jazz. In fact, it makes it look more like the hold whale fin from g1 jazz.

    I say the first pic. I think it fits more with the curves of the car. The second one looks a little out of place. Great job!
