    Well, after a week (O_O) of posting my fan-made characters, I thought I would post some G1 homages that I've made into Alt customs. As most of you guys know, my feelings about homage is not necessarily "100%" translation from G1 into Alternator/Binal Tech for the most part. That being the case, I do ALWAYS seek to capture the "essence" of the character.

    All of that aside (at least for the time being, hehe), this custom seeks to do much of what I described above. Essentially, I took an Alt Ricochet and an Alt Silverstreak for this kitbash. I removed the flames from the hood and gold from the spoiler, then I parts-swapped the hood, roof, back glass, trunk, and rear bumper with Silversteak. I kept Silverstreak's floorboard/abdomen as well as making sure it was a RHD version (*gasp*) since this guy is the "anime" version. Then (while I know it deviates from the ehobby G1 *double gasp*), I painted the rocker panels because I had decided early on that I wanted to make some black "ground effects." I don't like the interruption of the "streak" from front to back by stopping with the roof, so I continued it the whole length of the car as well. The launcher was also added (I did the same with my Silverstreak also) to top this guy off.

    Without further delay, here is Alternators Bluestreak (anime version):

    Didn't Bluestreak have two missle launchers in the show?;) 

    Awesome work BTW!


    Also, this is just my opinion, but I would suggest making the Forearms black and the hands silver.

    That I do! Hehe, this custom's for you then! :D  (relatively speaking, hehe)

    Thanks for the props bro! :) 

    Oh wow, that would make for some excitement!

    "TFW2005.com News Update: Member onesock's Head Explodes Due To Response To Transformers Custom (artist unavailable for comment)!"

    :lol 

    I'm glad you like my work and that you (along with a few others) have followed my work this week. Normally I post things when I finish 'em, but I was just on a roll this summer/fall making customs. Sometimes, when the juice is flowin', doing something else is swimming upstream. Thanks for the props! :) 

    Hey man, thanks for interacting with my work! You're right about the toy/cartoon having 2 launchers, but the BT Smokescreen GT only had one (and I only have so many launchers!). You'll see later where another ended up /*spoiler alert

    That's a really good idea, but I think he has enough black on him as is. I think the red brightens him up a bit. I might get the urge though, you never know! :wink: 

    I'm glad you like my work! :D 

    Hehe, thanks man! If it says anything, I've been making Alt/BT customs almost 3 years (January will be 3 years for me! Yay!). I've still got some things up my sleeve (/*2nd spoiler alert), as well as one custom on the table 60% finished and more in line. At the start of the year, I had close to 60 planned customs; when I did my recount the other day, I'm down to 45.

    Thanks for the support! I really appreciate it!

    Thanks for the ultra props, buddy! /bad pun :tongue:

    Thanks man! :D  I am actually a fan of pretty much any G1 character; I rarely play favorites (though there some that I really like).

    While the back glass and the trunk were not black on the "anime" version, the bumpers were. It's a bit overlooked since every Fairlady Z TF had black bumpers, hehe.

    Thanks for the propls man! :) 

    Thanks man! If I'm ever bored, I may make one. One of the reasons I didn't was because I've seen it done several times. A comment like the one from ckhtiger really means a lot because I try to be original quite often :) 

    . . . and I'd agree that a blue Bluestreak would be cool :D 

    Thanks man! :D
