EE has every figure except Mousers at $38 from wave 5 and 6 for Cyber Monday.

Looks like free shipping even if you just buy one. Best deal on these so far — I got the remaining 7 I needed (already had Scratch), $38 is right about where I feel these are worth these days.

Pre-ordered Zak this weekend.

Also looks like some UK sites are now listing wave 5 as in stock so hopefully those will be shipping soon. Been feeling left out over here :lol:

Yep, I finally bit on wave 5 and 6 with this deal. I'm still waiting out the Mousers though as I don't see how they are worth $55 either. I'm sure those will come down eventually. As much as I want to support this line to keep it going the retail price just isn't worth it to me considering the QC issues that persist.

On saturday, i went to a LCS and saw a bunch of figs from this wave. i know these are 7 inches in scale but they are pretty big and bulky, i was surprised at the bulkiness. I almost got Duck guy but passed. I did go with a major headache so maybe thats why LOL

Sidenote: this line might be my replacement for my current turtles. time for a replacement. Dont like the neca (animated) or the SHF turtles, never liked the legs on the SHF.

Don’t forget the influencer codes at EE too — if you’re ordering two or more Ultimates, you still get free shipping and save 10% extra on top of the sale prices.

I used PRETERNIA for mine.

What's the general consensus on Ace Duck? I know the wings are a bit tricky to get in and most people seem to be disappointed in his color scheme. But other than that, would you recommend him?

He was never on my radar since I was never really a fan of the character or the design, didn't have the vintage figure either. But man, that alt head... that looks just awesome. Kinda on the fence now since I'm really enjoying this line again after getting Sewer Samurai leo, Krang and Slash (Sewer Surfin' Mikey is als on the way).

I personally can't get past the color pallette on Ace. I just hate that creamy brown they went with. I've seen the figure in person too and still disliked it, but I also was never attached to the figure as a kid. Always bothered me he wasn't in the cartoon for more than a cameo.

What are the influencer codes? I used PRETERNIA as well, only because you listed it here.

Ace as a figure is just fine. He moved well and I didn't have any trouble with looseness at his hips. He's a TOUCH finicky with his feet, but nothing that was bad enough for me to turn my nose up to him. And weirdly enough, I didn't have any trouble with his wings staying in. Now, one of them felt like it was going to snap the peg as I was twisting it into the hole...but it's been okay beyond that.

That coloring is pretty awful though. It's made worse when you put his hat on, and then he's just this waxy drab color all over. I don't know how that got OK'd. It had to've been too late to change it or they didn't want to spend the money to fix them, or something. But it takes a figure that would've been pretty solid overall down a few pegs.

Thank you for the updates / codes! Finally got Sewer Mikey and Ray Fillet. Just about done with all the Super 7 TMNT I wanted.

Pretty much every influencer has their own 10% off code like PRETERNIA, so you can just use the one for the influencer you like best. I usually always end up using his because he’s a good guy and his social media is pretty laid back.

After this sale, and the past discounts on older figures, I’m at the point where I will never preorder or pay full price for a Super7 figure again unless it’s actually exclusive to them. Transformers Wave 1 hit an extreme discount too.

Maybe Brian's glasses were foggy when he approved Ace's colors? That could account for the desaturation, lol.

I wish we got deals like this in the UK as I agree that, given the repeated QC issues and just value for money in general, $38 seems a fair price for the current product.

There's getting fewer retailers here for these now and, beyond a few figures from waves 2 & 3, I'm not really seeing any on sale here below retail.
