Tiptop was a renowned strongman with the Traveling Three-Sphere Circus of Nebulos, until his own carelessness led to his downfall. He blamed others for his misfortune, however, and joined the Decepticons to get back at them.
Binary-bonded with Quake, Tiptop became a Targetmaster capable of transforming into a gyroscopic de-stabilizer rifle that unbalances its targets. Tiptop can't stand Quake's other partner, the smarmy and shiftless Heater.
- Quake w/ Tiptop and Heater (Targetmaster, 1988)
- Tiptop, like all the "double" Targetmaster Nebulans, is one of the smallest and least complicated Transformers. Fold the barrel away, and stand him up. He was released with the Decepticon Quake in 1988. No version of this character or mold was released in Japan.
- Despite Quake appearing frequently in the Marvel comics, Tiptop and Heater were nowhere to be seen.
