Ichiban Kuji: Selectable prizes for non-blinds small prizes. Double chance included if your country carries this Kuji.
Series Sequel: 17th Eva Kuji, second in 2021
EverythiIt’s been a while since we had an Evangelion Kuji and as we all know, it’s the Eva units that is attractive so hope this set gives us something good.
Prize A (2 pieces) / Double Chance
Top Prize Appearance: Debut
So here we have an amazing looking Eva Unit 13, it’s different from previous Eva Unit as it holds weapons! This whole figure just looks amazing and also the reason why anyone would want to play this Kuji. Glad there’s 2 to go around in this set.
If you are unable to pull him, you can hope for a double chance win as well.
Prize B (2 pieces)
Top Prize Appearance: 17th
We go by the tradition where Asuka is always featured. She looks different here because of the white suit, that being said, I think if you are not the fan of the human characters, I don’t think any of their variant would attract you in anyways. That being said, it’s a figure nonetheless.
Prize C (2 pieces)
Top Prize Appearance: 12th
Rei looks great too and she is in her black suit for this set. I know most people aren’t looking for her figure, but it’s still a prize, so no harm pulling it.
Prize D (2 pieces)
Top Prize Appearance: 8th
Mari looks amazing too. These 3 ladies all have different color suits compare to most of their earlier versions! They are quite underrated to be honest, they are essential characters in the show and their figures are great, you could consider keeping a few of them to display alongside your Eva Units.
Prize E (17 pieces)
Distribution: 2 x 4 pieces each. 3 x 3 pieces each. Blind box.
The bottles are next, they are a small 350ml water bottle. The bottle design is not the best, it’s a little too simple. It’s a useful prize just hope at least the art can be better.
Prize F (14 pieces)
Distribution: 4 x 3 pieces each. 1 x 2 pieces.
Next we have small notepads, feels special as each prize have 3 notepads, one for the character, one for the logo and one for the Eva unit. Good for display if you are into that, if not you can always use a notepad.
Prize G (25 pieces)
Prize G (20 pieces)
Distribution: 1 x 4 pieces. 7 x 3 pieces each.
Folder set are common as you can see from other Kuji set, but at least they are giving 2 pieces of folder to each prize so that’s good. The design is not bad too, one for the character and the other for the Eva Unit, I will give the design aspect of this prize to them, it’s quite good.
Prize H (16 pieces)
Distribution: 8 x 2 pieces each. Blind box.
The glass looks fine, at least the character art feels a little special. A pity they didn’t have all 5 characters with their Eva Units as the design.
Asuka is almost always the last prize, like how good would it be if the Eva Units were the last prize right? It’s a different pose compared to Prize B, not a bad prize. If you want this figure, do look out for a 8- buyout or 15- with at least 1 figure or 25– with A in it.
Variety of Prize
Odds of big prizes
Value for Money
All in all, this set clearly have one goal, to make you eye for the A prize and that’s it. Even if the other prizes are good looking, fans will just want the Eva unit.
5 tickets for a chance to get A, if not at least a figure.
Collectibles? : The A is the only thing worth keeping, maybe if you want all the human’s different colored suit then you can collect the ladies as well.
