Well, given thought/speculation that Transformers have been on Earth for a VERY LONG TIME, the biplane could be from a 'flashback montage' in the movie where we see historical vehicles and machines transforming... as our heroes learn the full scope of Cybertronian influence upon our culture.

I'll be a believer when we see that Ransack's robot mode in clearer detail. Looks kind of strange to me in that blurry shot.

Shouldnt the biplane be named Barnstorm instead of Ransack? Ransack doesnt seem to fit to me.

From the text BIO above the robots. They are blurry. But just enough can be made out to say its Depthcharge and Ransack.

I'm trying but all I can make out is a bit bold R for the Biplane and two bold De for the boat. Perhaps your right but I'll wait till we have better images of them.

The boat is cool, but comeon there pushin it with the biplane that looks retardid ! No one even uses those anymore. But to complete the scout set just like the set of Target only scouts I guess ill have to get it.

Cant wait to see how they justify a bi-plane. The boat guy looks good but i fear for the plane. Would've been a good idea for some spin off toy line but for the movie i dont know. 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.

I agree except for core characters. I'm gonna get as many of the 25th universe toys as i can afford. The only real problem i had with the univers line was how crappy the 25th prime remake was.

first i want to say who the crap tales these picture dont these poeple know the word focus.

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

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 ???
