Ransack seems to live to antagonize the Autobot builder Smokescreen. Whenever Smokescreen finishes a new building or installation or piece of art, Ransack is lurking not too far away in the shadows, waiting to demolish it. It's kind of petty, really.
- Smokescreen with Liftor vs. Ransack with Refute (Battle in a Box, 2004)
- Ransack is a redeco of the Armada Hoist mold, transforming into a heavy shovel-arm digging machine. He was slightly retooled so the plate on his shovel-arm was flat rather than having a molded faction sigil. His shovel-arm is locked until a Mini-Con is placed on the Powerlinx plug on the top, whihc activates a "punching" gimmick.
- He was only available in a Battle in a Box multi-pack along with Smokescreen, Liftor and Refute. This set was only available in "market six" stores like Kohl's.
