    Ransack (Ransack (ROTF) - Transformers Wiki) was a contemporary of Jetfire, a fellow Seeker who transformed into a World War biplane. He appeared in the ROTF novelization/comics, where he strafed Jetfire for betraying the Decepticons... and got stomped on by him. He later appeared in the spin-off comic NEFARIOUS.

    Generally the Seekers seemed to be a take on the HEARTS OF STEEL comic, which featured steampunk Transformers in the 19th century. It was a cool plot angle, and I think it needed more exploration: give Jetfire one more battle, facing his rival Ransack as a kind of old vendetta thing as well as to buying time for the humans to find the Tomb.

    Ransack. Oh no no no, you mean Baron Ransack von Joy.

    If by him, Yes! :)

    I'd like him and Jetfire to be in the Smithsonian together. Like when Jetfire transforms, Ransack transforms and does his flipping out before being stomped on.

    Cool.

    But I'm torn as to whether I like the biplane or Model T better.

    yes. more coherent plot/character development and less slapstick humor would've been great.

    I'd have liked him as Jetfire's arch-enemy, an old Seeker who was his friend, but decided to remain loyal to the Fallen, while Jetfire became an Autobot.

    And so they became mortal enemies, they could have pretty interesting conversations along the movie.
