Looks like Jerry's already dickie-birdied into the cheese factory, what ho?

Ransack is often tasked for reconnaissance missions over Autobot encampments, and is well-known for his attack plans and calm demeanor. But once the fighting starts, Ransack fights back; disrupting Autobots from above with his magnetic field generator for stealth attacks. When shot down behind enemy lines, he transforms and battles to the death with his launchable rocket-powered propeller.

(Even though rockets powering a propeller seems like overkill.)

He helped Springer set up the "sky sniper" mines that turned out to be utterly useless against the Swarm. At least he tried.

Ransack's greatest regret is getting left out of the WWII era TF/Joe crossover. I mean if he can't get spotlight time there he might as well give up.

Ransack transforms into a purple Chance Vought F4U Corsair with green pontoons/bombs underneath. As a Rotor Force toy, Ransack has a propeller that can be launched in vehicle and robot mode, the prop/engine portion of his plane mode becoming a hand-held weapon for robot mode.
He came with two rotor discs, in case you lost one. (Considering how well they fly, good idea.) Early releases of Ransack and his partner Powerdive came with black-plastic rotor discs, but this was changed to red after a short while. The black-rotor version is much more uncommon.

Trivia

  • Transformers Generation 2 #7 mis-spelled his name as "Ransak".
