    Even though we only got to see him in alternate mode, and he didn't transform, I thought we should have a thread for Hightower.

    Admit it, he's got a REALLY cool looking robot mode, and could've made a great addition to the Decepticon cast in ROTF.

    So show your appriciation for Hightower!

    Ermm, he never had an official robot-mode, merely a concept artwork.


    However, the concept art was cool.

    regardless of what we saw in ROTF, hightower could have made a great addition to the constructicon staff.

    I agree. Hasbro better put him (and Overload) on the toyline has either Deluxe or Voyager class figures.

    Hightower is teh awesomes. Let's hope that the Constructicons return in TF3 so that there's an excuse to make a larger Hightower toy (and Overload and Scrapper as well)!

    I like Steve Guttenburg. What? Oh, sorry...

    Yeah, Hightower rules. It'd be great if Hasbro made a Voyager class one.

    Hightower definitely needs to see a Voyager release. I really dig the non-humanoid alt mode.

    Well, alt modes are usually meant to be non-humanoid. Unless you meant non-humanoid robot mode, which makes more sense.

    Hightower's concept art was awesome. I could see him fighting Sideswipe or Ratchet in Egypt, with him also using his tail. I doubt that we get a toy of him, but if we do, it might be the best constructicon since Mixmaster.

    When movie info was coming out, I thought a lot about all of the characters that probably wouldnt get much love like Hightower and Jolt. I see that they are now getting their deserved love. And I am happy about it :D

    Hightower's design has/had potential but the arms and legs clearly don't sink up with the style of the main body. I'd love to see the design perfected and refined for a sequel along with a toy based on said perfected design but I doubt any of that is going to happen.

    Hightower has a toy release. We just need a better and up-scaled one.
