Rumble and Frenzy are being sold by Takara as a two pack at the voyager price point, which would usually mean that both figures are deluxes, similar to Animated’s Jefire and Jetstorm.
Along that same line of reasoning, if the figures were scouts, they’d just be sold at the deluxe price point, like ROTF’s Skids and Mudflap as an ice cream truck.
However, Skids and Mudflap were actually smaller than most scout class figures, whereas Frenzy\Rumble appear to be on the bigger end of scout size.
How do I know this?
The picture clearly shows a 3mm peg on each arm.

How can we be sure that those are 3mm pegs?
Scaling a picture of Frenzy\Rumble to a known scout based on the peg size only shows us that he is possibly scout size, but to prove that is a 3mm peg we scale a picture of a known deluxe using the peg size and then compare the two known figures to see if accurate size difference is achieved.
Basically we know how big Hubcap is and we know how big Straxus is. If we compare both of their 3mm pegs to Frenzy\Rumble and then compare them to each other, we can reasonably prove that it is a 3mm peg and Frenzy\Rumble is a scout.
Why am I posting this? Because I’ve seen people still arguing that these are deluxes. And cause I’d already made the picture.
Why are they being sold as a voyager in Japan?
Two normal sized scouts are a bit bigger than a deluxe, and Frenzy\Rumble look to be on the bigger size of scouts. Small enough to sell by themselves, but hard to fit in a deluxe sized package.
Plus, Takara has a bigger market of collectors to cater to, so they can get away with the voyager price point.
