I don't yet know the source of these images, beyond the fact someone called BV made them. joefranklin shared them on Facebook, so that's how I encountered them. I hope to know how to give credit where credit is due!
The Jiren and UI Goku are Entertainment Earth exclusives and were available to order online before SDCC; the Goku has a painted belt and better eyes than the single release that was not an exclusive.
The SSB Gogeta and SS Broly were at SDCC at Funimation's booth but I don't know if they were exclusive to just that or not.

I could've sworn I saw somewhere that the third character in the last set was going to be 2.0 Vegeta, but I can't seem to find that information anymore. I do certainly hope we continue to get movie figures!
ToadKart I guess so. If someone only collects DS and nothing else, it's probably nice to have a non-SS Vegeta on the 2.0 body without having to repaint or customize. The small pic I saw of it showed him in darker clothing than the SS and SSB versions. Their attention to detail regarding clothing colors and transformations is very nice in this line, even if I don't particularly like many of the figures' proportions or bodies.
Thanks (sry don’t know how to tag yet). That link took me to series 18 with jenemba/ss bardock/ss vegito. Have you seen any series 17 with goku/vegeta/gotenks? Anyone selling or able to confirm it was ever in stores yet?
*edit I see they are calling them series 17... im looking at my boxes right now with them labeled 18... odd

oh yeah, i can tag now on my PC... mobile not so much Branjita image above doesnt show vegeta in the latest set monaka image has wave 17/18 flip flopped from what I have on my boxes (Jenemba and SS Vegito)
doing searches on Amazon I found Gotenks for sale with scu number 36776 a goku with 36774 little scooby doo mystery solving and i figure Vegeta is 36775 searches for "DRAGON BALL STARS VEGETA VER2 36775" yield some results internationally.
I believe i have one on order now, as i dont want to risk it not being on shelves here in my area. Gonstead if you are seeing series 17 (goku/vegeta/gotenks) on shelves and not the series 18 (Janemba/SS Bardock/SS Vegito) that makes me think i did miss them somehow in my area.
I haven't had a reply to my questions for my contact at Bandai yet. Sometimes I don't hear back for a while, and it's only been 7 days.
My personal assumption is that Wave 17 just hasn't made it to the US yet for some weird reason. It came out in the UK in like... October 2020 or something like that (right?). It's strange that Goku, Vegeta, and Gotenks haven't made it to the US yet, but they haven't.
The World Martial Arts Tournament playset which includes Goku (only the DX version includes Goku) has only been found in Europe as well. That Goku is the figure in wave 17... so... it's not a coincidence.
Also, someone on Facebook posted this updated checklist. I have no idea who made it, but here it is:

Looks like there is a Dragon Star Series (6" scale... not the 2" or whatever those small ones are) called "Power Up Pack". Goku and SS Vegeta look to be series 1. I will post picts later for those interested but they have stands, ki blasts, and power up backdrop effects. So the box is about same height but around 2" wider with all the extras in it, than the standard dragon star series boxes.
Yes, those are DS figures with different facial expressions and a larger (wider) box. I saw them in person at Target a couple weeks ago, but didn't take pics or buy any. They are a pretty neat option for those wanting effects.
