    I really appreciate all of your responses on my Alternators Streetwise thread, and I had said that I've shot a ton of photos this weekend; this thread is, of course, another result from it. I had some questions regarding my work, and I'm not fond of confusion, so here goes:

    After I decided to rename the custom in the previous thread "STREETWISE," I was left with this custom. I knew Autorooper was on the way (and I wanted to rename him as well), so I came up with "BACKSTREET." I think it sounds cool and it also allowed me to free up "STREETWISE" for the custom I made from the Alt Prowl that I posted. Some of you guys probably remember when I posted Backstreet when I initially finished him. I never felt "Streetwise" suited him. "BACKSTREET" grew on me and I think it fits better.

    I don't want to add confusion after [hopefully] clearing some up, but other photos I took of Backstreet really gave him personality as well. I'll be posting those photos a bit later. For now, here is the gallery of Backstreet flying solo, sporting off his alt mode:

    and robot mode:

    [Also, I think the kanji was established in the Streetwise thread. Just a few notes about it: Streetwise and Backstreet both sport it and it's not the last time it'll show up. I just find it a bit odd that I read NOTHING about the kanji being this way about BTA Alert, yet when I've posted my work, all of a sudden it's an issue? Color me a tad confused. I do want work that is consistent and accurate; this case I'll have to settle for 2.5/3 :) ]

    Anyways, I hope you guys enjoy my work! Always my pleasure to share with yas :)

    That looks sweet. Again, some nice work. I think the name fits too.

    Man, I really appreciate that. Thanks :D 

    Thanks for the props man. I have no plans for a police Prime/Dodge Ram though. Aside from some planned additions to my US police force and the Japanese "Prefecture Police," I think I'm pretty much done with police customs. I do love em though :) 

    Thanks man! :D  I'm glad you think that. I really think the name is much more suited for him too :)

    That's only because I made it and I stink. I'm not only a loser, but I need a bath too. I sincerely apologize if you can smell my custom and I'm doubly apologetic if Backstreet "stinks".

    Now my feelins are hurt. I'll never make another Alt custom again! *runs away and cries*

    yeah, that was the first thing I noticed. there's lots of little details molded into alts that often get overlooked.

    Thanks for the props guys! I REALLY appreciate everyone's interaction :) 

    Many of you guys raised an EXCELLENT point about the wonderful sculpting Hasbro/Takaratomy places in their work. I hope (esp. with the Rollbar thread) that despite the lack of paint apps sometimes, that I'm just grateful the detail is there to begin with to paint [or whatever]. Since Backstreet didn't have a heapload of body work in alt mode, I did want to pull out some of the details in bot mode.

    It's really odd (to me) how I had him finished before "Autorooper" came out (and before many other artists started pulling out a lot of those details). After I finished, I was a bit afraid he had been overworked a bit, but I think it balances out well. With Alts/BTs, I really like a slick, clean, "new" look to them, as opposed to the more grittier, weathered robots other Transformers are/can be. That's not a slam by ANY means to that style (I REALLY like it actually, as I've weathered my Classics Starscream and a few other customs *future spoiler alert*; just a deliberate style choice for my Alt customs to an extent anyways.

    D00D, don't be sorry, my wife and I laughed at that one! :lol  Too funny (and sig worthy I'd say hehe)

    I might have one down the road, but it'll be quite some time I'm thinking. If/when that comes, I'll try to remind ya. Just keep checking back (esp. if you see a new Acura custom from me down the road)!

    See my Alternators Streetwise thread :) 

    Thanks again for the comments guys; it's much appreciated :)
