    We first saw stock photos of this set back in June:
    Transformers: Cyberverse Spark Armor Cheetor And Optimus Prime & Starscream 2-pack New Stock Images - Transformers News - TFW2005

    Last week it was found by TFW2005 member monkeydluffy at Tesco in the UK:
    United Kingdom Transformers Sightings

    It's also listed at Tesco's website:
    https://www.tesco.com/groceries/en-GB/products/303623001

    Supposedly, the figures are unchanged from their original releases. Also, due to the nature of this two-pack, it's most likely a Tesco exclusive in the UK. It might become available through other venues in other markets, since exclusive deals usually only apply on a country-by-country basis.

    Also, Hasbro wisely chose to remove the "35th Anniversary" label seen in the stock photos from the packaging. While that kind of thing works for more "collector"-oriented lines, it's a bad choice for actually kid-aimed toys, since it makes them seem like oooooold toys.

    It's also listed at Amazon Mexico:
    https://www.amazon.com.mx/dp/B07SW87HJS

    German licensing portal Brandora is also listing it:

    Forgive me if someone has already said this, but this Optimus & Starscream 2-Pack is totally giving me Costco figure multi-pack vibes.

    I'm not etirely sure if this set will be released in the US at all. There were a bunch of 2-packs that were only available in Europe (and, occasionally, Brazil) over the years:

    Other 2-packs were only/mostly available in Asia:
