    I've had this guy for a while now and can honestly say that he's hands down the best 3rd party figure I've ever owned!!!!!!

    But I noticed people complaining about the lack of the yellow spoiler in alt mode. It didn't bother me at all but I decided to do this just because. I had an extra G1 Hot Rod spoiler so I cut it to fit and glued it in place. It doesn't affect transformation at all!!!!!

    I hope this mod sells a few people on this guy who might be on the fence about him just for the lack of the spoiler.

    Nice, I do agree Carry needs something in that space.

    Looks pretty nice. That missing alt mode spoiler was one of the only complaints Ive heard about this figure. Is it better than the official MP with the fiddly fall-apart legs?

    Time to buy some yellow plastic and print this up. Too bad there's not much to clip onto, may have to glue. Maybe double sided tape.

    I just got Carry and I love him and I also feel like this is the one thing missing from him. Is this still an idea,Im interested in it. Sadly I dont wanna cut my Hotrod apart.

    Too bad theres not much to clip it on in altmode,I see there almost two slots behind the windshield,but it would have to conform to the roof to fit,I wouldnt mind a parts former,its just a small piece for robot mode.

    I just got mine the other day and hes amazing,way better then official MP,only problems on mine is I have some yellow paint coming thru on the rear of his alt mode,I also have paint chipping off his die cast feet and the right hip has gotten extremely loose and Ive only transformed his 3 time so far. Im goinga see if I can exchange him for another from the store I got him from but hes a amazing figure.

    Oh man I'm so sorry I never answered this question. This figure is amazing!!! I love this guy. I would say he's way better than the official one.Even without the spoiler. I have had no issues what so ever with mine. All his joints are still tight. There's no missing or chipped paint. Like I said before, he's one of if not the best 3rd party figure I've ever owned

    It's the little things.
    If DX-9 re-releases him WITH that little extra bit I think they should give you a percentage of each unit sold.

    Resurrection!!

    Just wanted to add my thoughts. Since the reissue of this guy is pending, I'm jumping. What's comical is all that I have left from my original G1 Hot Rod is the canopy with spoiler attached. I can't think of a better use than upgrading this awesome figure. I haven't decided on a decal set, but I am leaning towards the Reprolabels. If that spoiler isn't what I want, I know I'll have a backup in my G1 Hot Rod piece! Great job @rumble619 !!
