    I've just got a really great idea for a Deluxe 2-pack that could easily be made in the classics. It would be a vs. pack of a clear plastic edition of Mirage, which would symbolize his invisible state, against a clear edition of Starscream, making it the Ghost of Starscream. Two clear deluxes, like the clear plastic made to make the Cybertron Shadow Recon Minicon Team(colorized, but still clear), for 20 bucks. What do you all think. I would certainly buy it, but I'm not sure how many other people would be interested in seeing it. Peace out.

    The figure concepts are actually pretty good, so good, that I think Hasbro would be better served by splitting them up into a pair of sets:
    Battle on the Nemesis: Invisible Mirage against a Ramjet repaint
    Return of Starscream: Starscream Ghost against a repainted Rodimus (make him Rodimus Prime for fun)

    Now that's a great recolor idea...two pack or not, I think those two recolors would be cool.

    Neat idea! I'd buy it. Normally I don't like transparent plastic figures (looks cheap to me most of the time) but for these characters it would make perfect sense!

    Thanks for the great response everyone. I actually hope that one of the higher ups in Hasbro see this thread and decide to take my idea and make and sell these guys either in the 2-pack like my origional idea, with different characters in different 2-packs(like suggested by someone else in this thread), or even by themselves. Either way, I would buy both of them. Peace out.

    I think your Nemesis idea is a good one, however I think Thundecracker would be a better choice, as I don't think Ramjet appeared in MTME.

    Agreed. That would be a good way to give us Thundercracker. Then we could have Ghost Starscream packed with a black and grey Starscream the way he looked just before he turned to ash. With the release of the 20th ann. DVD, the death of starscream 2-pack would have an awesome tie-in.

    Or even have a two pack called "The Rise and Fall of Starscream", which would include King Starscream and the Ghost of Starscream. There are so many possibility's for these two clear figures and some possible other ones to go with them. Let's just hope Hasbro continues the line and decides to at least make these two by themselves. Peace out.

    I have to agree with the Invisible Mirage vs Thundercracker 2-pack, proposed by Random Autobot.

    I also have say yes to the Death of Starscream 2-pack proposed by Insane Galvatron.

    Eh...

    But I'm not big on the whole clear versions of characters. (Also not big on Black Repaints either. I know that wasn't mentioned here, but I know it's only a matter of time before Nemsis Prime shows up.)

    But you know if it gets more Classics on the pegs and buys some time for new molds, well then I can't really object too much now can I?

    Not too keen on the Starscream idea, but then that's just because the mold doesn't interest me at all.* But abso-fricken-lutely love the clear Mirage. I'd buy that in a heartbeat!


    * = I think Ramjet looks really cool, though.

    Neat idea, but I probably wouldn't buy it. At least not until other more important characters & repaints are made available first. If they finish off the Seekers and add some more popular characters like Ironhide, Wheeljack, Hound, etc. into the mix, then I'd consider buying clear versions of Mirage & Starscream. But until/unless the others are available, it would be a terribley redundant set of toys imo. Just as redundant as repainting anything black and calling it "nemesis" would be.

    Me too! That would be a great two-pack. ;-)
