    Runner up could be Blaster and Twincast.

    3rd place is Windblade and Slipstream.

    But I'd buy all of the above.

    My top 3 guesses are the following:

    1) Thundercracker & Skywarp
    Reason: They have been double-packed before. So doing this would not be anything different or new.

    2) Sunstorm & Acid Storm
    Reason: Both are obscure characters that have been made into G1 toys. So using them to do a exclusive set should make some sense.

    3) "Earthrise" Optimus Prime & "Earthrise" Megatron
    Reason: Who would not a "War for Cybertron" version of the VSX set? Besides the obvious few who say they don't.

    Edit: I have to give credit to YoungPrime for pointing out my error (Acid Rain = Acid Storm).

    That's because of the extra crap that came with him that I still haven't taken out of the box (hmm...where did I put the box?). I had a credit from Amazon anyway so I didn't take any loss.

    Anyway 2 Dlx's for $65 would have to be some epic @ss characters to win my attention and wallet!

    Acid rain or Acid Storm?

    Sunstorm is a buy on sight though! And if we're still talking about obscure characters then Straxus and DW's version of The Fallen made from the ER Megatron's mold would be priceless! Honorable mention to Bludgeon and Banzai-tron made from Earthrise Meg's mold as well.

    My new guess is an Earthrise giftset of Skywarp(or Thundercracker), and Slammer(white/gray repaint of Siege Impactor).

    Thanks for the comment. I'm so preoccupied with how things were for the past two days that I forgot to fact-check all character names. I'll correct it right now. :p

    Hey well there's still so many other obscure Seekers out there that Acid Rain could still be a legit one.

    Skywarp and Thundercracker would be convenient, as long as they have their lavender/black and sky blue paintjobs respectively.

    I would really love Optimus and Megatron though. The Earthrise Leader OP deco is a bit bland, and having one with the white thighs/cod, red biceps and head painted like Siege would be a blessing.

    We already know its 4 waves, it was confirmed around POTP that they have set a new 1 year long line plan and each line since has followed that, TR was the last to have multiple.

    Each will be 1 year long with 4 waves total, a class or two could be given a straggler wave 5 but 4 is it

    Galvatron is on the wave 1 Earthrise deluxe box art? and there's that Earthrise wave 1 Votager Starscream with the coronation head/variant/factory mistake...

    Really the only explanation that makes sense is Skywarp and Thundercracker.

    I really hope it does turn out to be them so 1) I can breath a sigh of relief that it's something I don't want 2) Drop the aftermarket price of siege Skywarp which I DO want.

    I said this on another thread, it would be a serious cop-out for this not to be TC and SW. We know well we’ll get them either way, but they got separate voyager releases in Siege. The Coneheads deserve that treatment this time around, the original seeker squadron should be relegated to a two pack.

    It just says "mode". I'm not denying that this could totally be Skywarp and Thundercracker, but until I get confirmation that this isn't the aforementioned Dirge and Ramjet duo, I'm not holding out hope.

    My guess as well. The fact their calling it Earthmode 2 pack suggests these characters have Siege versions. I'm really hoping for a Skywarp and Thundercracker in Earthrise, so this would be perfect.
