    I'm betting Dirge and Ramjet (Thrust is the rumored single pack, right?). I'm quite certain SW and TC will show up sooner or later (maybe WFC3, maybe some Amazon exclusive in the late fall), but think Hasbro will get the Coneheads all out first.

    My dumber guess is a Grapple two pack with one orange head and one black head

    optimus is a leader class due to his engineering and trailer and you can’t just make the figure without his trailer because parts of his body and his trailer come from the same mold cast. His legs and his hands. Hence the 3 months of drama on why his hands were grey. Part of the trailer’s cast

    I'm guessing it's either a Ramjet and Dirge 2 Pack or a Thundercracker and Skywarp 2 Pack. Or maybe it's something out of left field like a Blaster vs Soundwave set, it's all up in the air for guessing.

    it says earthrise earthmode 2 pieces. starscream was solicited as earthrise earthmode starscream to differentiate him from the siege cybertronian starscream. why would the coneheads need to be referred to as earthmode if they didnt get cybertronian mode toys? it wouldnt make sense. the more logical conclusion is that its a two pack of guys we got in siege

    Reasonable. Though I still believe it will be Optimus and Megatron due to their high profile in pop-culture. I'm probably just being pessimistic since HasTak isn't that creative with their exclusives.

    it cant be the earthrise optimus mold, the back half of his legs and the hands are on the same mold as his trailer parts, you dont get prime unless you get his trailer

    you kinda are and they have been creative plenty of times. They have done plenty of two or more packs that arnt optimus and Megatron. The sideswipe slam dance exclusive. Mirage and Impactor and Aragon too. The rainmakers 3 pack

    Hasbro/Takara has an infinitely larger budget than FunPub had and Warden is a stickler for details like this so Dirge and Ramjet will get unique wing designs. Plus the previous retail versions of these three each had their unique wing designs and the new versions would be roughly double the price (I think the old ones retailed for about $10-15 U.S. between Classics & Generations so a little rounding up in my estimate) so the new versions won't dare be inferior. I just hope Dirge and Ramjet get their unique weapons and maybe Thrust gets a unique design also (maybe something based on the G2 seeker weapon). A third party could do black versions of the Starscream rifles for fans that want that.

    i think they’ll all have their unique wings. I hope Ramjet and Dirge have missiles for their weapons and Thrust dirge has null rays but I won’t be surprised if they all have null rays. Ya know...coz the cartoon.

    I'm predicting we will get earth versions of soundwave and blaster in part 3 of the wfc as leader class figures with 4 cassettes each.

    that costs some micromaster slots and we’ve yet to see a micromaster other than countdown be packed with larger figure for retail. IF soundwave and Blaster happen they’ll be voyagers so then they can sell cassette micromasters in their own packaging like they’ve been doing. Adds to the character WFC number each character is getting.

    Yeah, the more I look at Earthrise Starscream the more I want the rest in the same mold. So the $160+ I spent on 7 SEIGE Seekers last year (8 if I cave and buy Hotlink) will likely be what I'll likely spend on ER Seekers this year if Sunstorm gets any ER love.
