    It looks like people are getting the first wave now, as we can see images of...

    Actionmaster Bombshell

    Actionmaster Banzaitron

    Gen1 Optimus Prime

    Gen1 Ghost Starscream

    These things are almost Leader class size.

    These things are a lot bigger than I thought!

    It definitely justifies the cost a bit more, but they are then harder to fit in with a regular collection of figures if that was the hope.

    Looking forward to these arriving.

    Due to price I couldn't yet justify owning 2... so now the big decision, to open or not open.

    For me, Super7 boxes and card designs are part of their appeal. Maybe display MISB without the outer sleeve cover. These Ultimates aren't very poseable anyway because the toy designers didn't want the lines of the joints to break the aesthetics of the figure. I can understand their motivation when i look at all the gaps in my SH Monsterarts figures.

    Yeah, the Reactions will be sealed for sure... the Ultimates are a bit of a harder decision. While the box design and presentation is nice, there's not a lot of box art to go with it.

    Still only one wave of the large sized Ultimates (about 27cm tall) have been released so far, and the fourth wave has just been announced... for release in 12 months time, mid-year 2023.
    Priced at us$55 each.

    There are three figures for wave 4, and two of them look like they might just be redecos with new accessories.
    Starscream (probably just a "colour" redeco of wave 1 Ghost Starscream)
    Fallen Leader Optimus Prime (could be a minor remould and grey redeco of wave 1 Optimus to add in the battle damage - to go with their grey/dead Optimus figure that they already have in their smaller size class)
    Soundwave - new, with a Laserbeak cassette. (the set reminds me of the Hasbro R.E.D. figure... which are about the same size, but about half the price)

    Comparing them via official product pictures, that Fallen Leader Prime also has some changes to the forearms to increase the range of movement for his elbows by the look of things.

    R.E.D. is a lot smaller. It's head reaches the top of Ultimates OP's abs (grill), as shown in this Youtube review.
