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

yes why a biplane and no dinobots

I think this biplane character is part of the scene that was filmed at the Smithsonian(?)... I don't know what aircrafts they have in there, but if Jetfire is supposed to be in that scene hiding as a Blackbird, why not have more Transformers disguised as historic airplanes or machines? Just my two cents...
Or could be the case of the first movie, where many military and civilian vehicles were turned by Hasbro into TF characters, and this biplane, again, is part of the museum sequence.

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.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ransack_(Transformers)

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.

Well I will have to see a clearer picture to see if I like this new character. But if he is in the movie I have to question why he would choose such a old school vechicle mode ??? Will he change form later on in the movie as we saw with Bumblebee from muscle car to concept car ???

The boat guy looks cool, and I might pick up the bi-plane for the sheer uniqueness of the alt mode. I think it's a really cool idea!

I totally agree. Transformers toys should be all about cool, interesting alternate modes transforming into robot toys instead of the same thing over and over and over. Read: Seeker jets.

Good to see some under-used alt modes getting a look in. Consider both of these bought purely because they don't transform into another bloody car/jet.

But it almost looks intentionally blurry. Even the crappiest phones don't look like that.

First: The reason why ALL first pics are so blurry is because they are taken quickly by people who work in the factory. They don't have time to make sure everything is in the frame and it will be in focus, they want to get the news out to us fans while keeping their jobs.

Second thing is: If the bi-plane isn't a toy-only or game figure, could it be that "senile bot" Bay was talking about when news of the movie came out?

So who's the kitbasher stepping up and doing a Hearts of Steel style rework of the bi-plane?
