    7th and final Construticon..Hightower (no not Hook! That be a silly name!!)..Devastator parts completed!

    [​IMG]

    Hightower is a bit of a chubby Constructicon that transforms into one of those er...crane things. Big thanks to ~VMetalic for pointing the vehicle out to me! (it appears in Constructicon green in 'Rise of the Constructicons', as well as an orange one in 'Lost and Found') So thanks!!

    In robot mode he looks like a welder (is that the correct word?)..he even comes with a protective vizor (and if that is not enough, he can pull the cab back over his head for double vizor protection!). Hands converts to a blowtorch/welding thing schtick, which I guess could be called a stinger, since Bumblebee uses his stingers for the same use.

    Oh yeah, and when he needs to weld something up high, he throws his crane hook up, then hoists himself up there for some extreme locations welding!

    Alt mode is altered from the original version (shorter crane). Why? Because I think the original one was a bit too long for a 'foreground' figure...plus there would have been an awful extra lot to collapse during transformation.

    -Is the team's welder. Seems uninterested and distracted from duties, but is really passionate about..welding.
    -His backpack can be sabotaged so his welding device no longer works.
    -Is not really fast or strong but can take a beating.
    -Everybody loves a chubby dude.

    Wow! Someone needs to lay off the oil!

    I just love your Animated designs; Great work! :thumbs2: 

    It would be cool to see a group pic of all the constructions including the original 3 from the show.

    Great concept for Hightower. I'd love to see a group shot with your constructicon designs with the other three from the show. :thumb

    I bet he'll make a good torso for Devastator seeing that he's that tubby enough to be a combiner body

    Very neat character design. His transformation isn't quite that clear to me though. I'm not sure where most the bulk of his upper torso comes from.
    Still, I like the originality of the design. You do a great job of capturing that TFA personality.

    That would make sense given he half formed from the headmaster unit. Fact I always assumed that was where they were going to take the concept before the show got canned.

    Thank you!! Group pic will be part of the Devastator reveal. And with group pic I mean static poses of all the Cons next to each other, I'm busy enough as it is! :p 
    I'd tell you. All I can wish for right now is Derrick Wyatt mailing me saying ZOMG THIS IS AWESOME. That would be cool. :(  :( 
    Yupyup! Thanks!
    I draw by hand, although sometimes I retrace the scans with a tablet, yes. Digital coloring is done with tablet (although in the case of coloring Animated figures, it doesn't really add much).
    Thanks man! He does have alot of inches to love, in that case. :) 
    What's stopping you? :)  Show it!
    Exactly!:thumbs2: 
    Thanks!!
    Thank you man! It's coming with Devastator.
    I don't think Hightower in Devastator is anything special, but it gets the job done.
    Glad you like this one better! :thumbs2: 
    Maybe...or maybe there is an even bigger Constructicon in the lineup...:tongue: 
    Thank you!
    Maaaybe..or maybe not. :) 
    Thanks! Glad they make you happy!
    Pelvis, actually. Wait..Dirt Boss is half Pelvismaster, right? :p 
    Thanks!!
    Magic.

    Thanks! :D
