Freedom. That's why HIGHTAIL came to Earth. Sure, he's an AUTOBOT, but that doesn't mean he has to follow OPTIMUS PRIME around like a puppy. CYBERTRON was just too small for him, is all, and the wide-open spaces and long-straight stretches of pure blacktop on EArth are the perfect antidote. HIGHTAIL is happy to mind his own business, crusing the back roads and byways of America, looking for the next filling station where he can recharge and kick back with a cold can of oil. And if he meets any DECEPTICONS along the way, well, he'll send 'em crying back to GALVATRON.
