character text from packaging...
For most of his life, Runamuck served as a spy and courier for Megatron, carrying messages to
Decepticon warriors behind enemy lines. Since his leader's disappearance, though,
Runamuck has been pretty bored. Too many Autobots around meant he couldn't get away with much. But now, with the
Autobots forced into hiding on Earth, he's having the time of his life tormenting them by striking at vulnerable targets in front of a lot of human witnesses, where the
Autobots can’t counterattack.

Similar to the TF: Cybertron Blurr, Runamuck is a throw-back design to a Transformer character from Generation One. Runamuck, back when he was introduced in
1986, was known as a Battle Charger. His original toy had a pull-back motor feature that when activated, would send his vehicle mode scooting across a flat surface. When he was transformed into robot mode, he could also roll across a floor by pulling back on his wheels. He had a near-identical Battle Charger partner named Runabout too and in the old Transformer comics, these two were hooligans and trouble makers— going so far as to spray paint graffiti on the Statue of Liberty!
Other Appearances: Hurrah! It sure seems safe to assume that
this Decepticon is an altered form of the G1 original. Indeed, the
same individual, w/ the same name in a different form. His first and
only other appearance in the Transformers Universe was waaaay back, 20 years
ago! (wow, how time flies!) in1986. Runamuck
a "Battlecharger" could -self transform as he raced across the
floor... ah, those were the days!
