Profile: Highbrow considers warfare a barbaric solution to problems, worthy of only the most primitive sentient creatures. He believes civilized folk should talk about their differences, a talent for which he seemingly has an endless capacity. Hardhead claims that Highbrow's voice box burns enough fuel by itself to power all the Autobots on their team for a year. Although that is doubtful, Highbrow does talk a lot and uses a lot of words that nobody understands. Even Chromedome often finds himself fruitlessly searching through his extensive vocabulary. Highbrow considers himself intellectually superior to the other Autobots. They think he's a self-righteous snob. Highbrow's biggest disappointment in life is that circumstance has forced him to lower himself to participate in the very activity he most loathes - fighting.
Abilities: In helicopter mode, Highbrow has twin three-bladed rotors that enable him to lift up to 22,000 pounds of cargo, and, with the help of two small vectored-thrust turbofan engines, reach a maximum speed of 1200 mph. More accurately, Highbrow's designation is a jet helicopter. He's packed with equipment designed to detect, monitor and record enemy communications; target-indicating radar whose signals can be relayed to ground stations; magnetic, infrared and audio sensors for detecting enemy robots and vehicles; and a variety of anti-detection systems to protect himself. His range is 800 miles. In robot mode, Highbrow uses two acid rainmaker rifles, which shoot streams of highly corrosive acid.
Weaknesses: Sometimes the thrust of Highbrow's jet engines overpower his rotors, sending him spinning out of control when in helicopter mode.
Sample Post: Highbrow was finding the discussion he was having with the maintenance worker standing across from him absolutely trying. "No, no, no. I have given you a gratuitous amount of information pertaining to the my current predicament. It is not my my problem if my thrice mentioned and thorough explanation proves to beyond the limited scope of your comprehension but I refuse to alter my linguistic preferences to defer to you in such narrow terminology as you are used to. Therefore you are required to extrapolate what you can of our dialogue and hurry with your repairs."
"Look buddy, I got several people waiting on me to do the repair work in this building and the last think I need is some stuffy jerk talking to big and holding me up." The worker stood there, holding a large wrench, tapping on it with his left pointer finger. "Either spell it out or you're out of luck."
"Fine, I shall endeavor to adjust to some sort of middle ground. I was entering my daily log within this console when all of the sudden it began a most erratic flashing of light and a sound like the loading of a modem before the screen began to irregularly illuminate and then it ceased to function." Highbrow says.
"So your computer flickered out and died on ya?" The worker asked, hoping his assessment would be accurate.
"Have I not articulated that face numerously? Now can you inform myself as to why such a device would react so abnormally?" Highbrow was clearly feeling as insulted and agitated as the worker.
"Likely for the same reason as it took so long for me to get what you were saying. A sentence from you is a data overload. I'll get a new monitor and have it up in half a day." The Worker says, turning to leave.
"What a unpleasant little man. It is like I conversed with an otherworldly entity borne from an unholy amalgamation of Hardhead and Grimlock." Highbrow remarked as the worker left. "Now in order to make time pass with expedience I suppose I should evacuate the premises and seek more stimulating activities with which I may be able to lose myself in. Perhaps Brainstorm is in need of a higher mentality in his latest project?" On this thought Highbrow himself leaves the room to seek out his comrade.
