(Well, it's better than Tackleberry)
Hightower is a heavy mobile crane, 15 cm(6.3") long including the winch. Main colours are bright and dark red, orange lights, and assorted silver and black parts. A small Autobot symbol is painted near the rear of the turret. Like Heavyload, Hightower holds together like a rock, with nothing popping out of place. Two small stabiliser posts flip out from beneath his front bumper, to help steady Hightower when he's lifting particularly heavy objects. His crane can raise, but the hook always remains at a 90 degree angle. His turret cannot rotate, so Hightower's efficiency as a crane is somewhat in doubt. At any rate, G1 Hook would almost certainly beat him in a "Haul Stuff From Point A to Point B" race.
Simple, yet lethal-looking. Flip down the hook and up flips a long silver rifle barrel. Now he's a self-propelled gun. Cool.
Similar to Heavyload. Remove the turret, extend the robot legs and flip out the arms, then reattach the turret and flip out the robot head.
Hightower may well be Heavyload's twin brother. Like Heavyload, he stands 13 cm(5") tall and has joints at the head, shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, knees, and feet. His head is red with a silver face, a black visor, and a downturned mouth. Makes him look pissed off. His main weapon is a long rifle formed from his crane. In addition, he has a small hand gun that stores inside his cockpit.
Like Heavyload, Hightower is a bulky but fun toy. It would be nice if the crane's turret had a bit more articulation, however.
