Dont get me wrong it looks ok but just in the wrong continuity. Cant believe that hasbro is canning the Universe line for this crappy movie and animated.

and 2nd i like biplane figure but the biplane should nt even remotlty be introduced into the film if they can introduce the biplane they cna introduce the dinbots, dinobots & biplanes are extinct, second whta dumb transformer would pick a slow moving vehical like that when it comes to air combat thats a bad disguise when fighting in the air.
i proaably get these figures but ill be sorley dissapointed if the biplane is introduced somehow in the film its just not possible or ligical

The G1 Ransack was a locust, G2 Ransask was a old prop airplane (specifically a Chance Vought F4U Corsair), Armada Ransack was a truck, Universe Ransack was a backhoe, Cybertron Ransack was a motorcycle. Seems like this guy is a homage to G2 if anything.
As for them working it into the plot, I see no reason he can't have found his alt mode in a museam or an airshow. I'd love it if a Transformer landed at the Henry Ford Museam and scanned something vintage. There are some sweet vehicles on display there.
Not every Transformer must turn into a 2009 vehicle. Heck, it's more likely that some alien landing at random in on earth would bump into something vintage than the latest showroom models and prototypes like we saw in the movie.
