    RotF Hightower robot mode (COMPLETE!)

    Edit: COMPLETE!

    Hightower has never been much of a team player. Because of this, it should come as no surprise that his fellow Constructicons would rip him apart to repair Megatron without so much as batting an optic. Barely clinging to life, he was dragged to the surface, and under the supervision of Decepticon medic Scalpel, engaged an emergency trans-scan, merging what remained of his body with a human construction vehicle. In this makeshift body Hightower cannot transform without experiencing intense pain, becoming both a hinderance in battle, and as a component of the Constructicon's combined form of Devastator.


    Not featured in the movie, and barely featured in the toyline
    (one measly little legends scale figure of nonspecific build)

    I just had to take a swing at making that jumble of robot and vehicle parts look cool.

    I like to think I did.

    Now, Hightower can be seen as the god he is.

    Cool, though i'm slightly unsure why you changed him from a Scorpion to a Dinosaur.
    Still awesome.

    He's awesome... :)  (I don't get the many quotes in the thread, though)

    I just ordered Legends Devastator from Robotkingdom - he's supposed to be released in JUly. Hopefully I can soon check just what sort of face Hightower has... :)

    There isn't really anything specifically scorpion-like about the legends fig. I just built on what I could make out of it.

    If Hasbro made Hightower look like your awesome drawing, I'll buy it on the spot.

    Yes, that looks great - after seeing more pictures of the Legends toy, the dinosaur vibe was very strong for Hightower and you've done a great job nailing it. Something like that would make a great robot mode for a larger scale Hightower toy :D

    I'm just glad the legends' head turned out to actually be his head and not some random chunk of black plastic.

    Very brave, not bad at all. I wonder who else is working on HIghtower robot mode, and if it's impossible to give this poor character a more humanoid look?
