There are places an Autobot just shouldn't end up! One such place is caught between the pincers of the evil Scorponok! That's where Highbrow currently finds himself, as the Nebulan Decepticon commander makes off with his captive Headmaster. Scorponok means to dissect Highbrow, in order to discover why the Decepticons' Headmaster process isn't working as it should. But with Highbrow at odds with his Nebulan companion, Gort, he may have not found the ideal specimen!
