Prize A (2 pieces)

Top Prize Appearance: 8th

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Of course we got Midoriya as the first top prize in this set. He has never failed to feature in any MHA sets in the past. This is a nice figure with his new blackwhip power.

Prize B (2 pieces)

Top Prize Appearance: 8th

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Bakugo also appeared in every MHA Kuji that featured a figure as well. That being said, this is a different pose and it has a good effect part as well, overall it just looks good, I am definitely getting this as well despite having so many Bakugo figure.

Prize C (2 pieces)

Top Prize Appearance: 6th

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Well Shoto isn’t as common but he only missed out 1 Kuji compared to the other 2 so far. He is definitely a favorite, the fire and ice effect part looks nice on him.

Prize D (1 piece)

Top Prize Appearance: Debut

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Did you know despite being the new No.1 hero, this is Endeavor’s debut as a top prize in MHA set! He looks great here. He is a rare figure like most others in this set and the flame effect looks perfect on him.

Prize E (1 piece)

Top Prize Appearance: 2nd

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Hawks another appearance here and his previous figure is so popular. Simple posing style with no effect, no complains here. Great that they feature both No 1 and No 2 hero in this set.

Prize F (1 piece)

Top Prize Appearance: Debut

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

How can you call this a Hero vs Villains set if there is no villains? Enter Shigaraki, this figure gives out the evil aura. This is also the first villain figure ever made, hopefully we get more villains down the road.

Prize G (1 piece)

Top Prize Appearance: Debut

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Unlike the heroes, the villains here are not as flashy and don’t have any cool looking pose or badass effect parts, but they sure give out an evil aura and definitely fits in well with your MHA collection. Dabi looks great here.

Prize H (1 piece)

Top Prize Appearance: Debut

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Toga makes this whole set very appealing not only because she is a villain, but also she is the second female figure ever made for MHA Kuji! Looks great if you put her beside your Uraraka figure! She has this sinister yet adorable (I am not sure if these 2 words should ever be together), and definitely will make you happy for pulling this.

Prize I (24 pieces)

Design: 12

Distribution: Bakugo and Hawks x 3 pieces each. Uraraka and Asui x 1 piece each. The other 8 x 2 pieces each.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 2.5 out of 5.

The folders are back and we get both heroes and villains in the design variation! Not exactly the best prize but the design looks okay and they are giving you an additional sticker along with a folder in each prize.

Prize J (20 pieces)

Design: 8

Distribution: Midoriya, Bakugo, Todoroki and Toga x 3 pieces each. 4 x 2 pieces each.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 2.5 out of 5.

Our usual towel in every MHA Kuji, the towel design looks decent, but they could have given us more variation, but oh well, we can’t win all the time. We do have both heroes and villains so that’s not so bad.

Prize K (25 pieces)

Design: 12

Distribution: Bakugo x 3 pieces each. 11 x 2 pieces each. Blind box

Prize Rating:

Rating: 2.5 out of 5.

The charms are okay, with a lot of characters featured here, 4 heroes, 4 students and 4 villains. I think we have seen better small prizes for MHA or even way better design and truth be told, the small prizes here are nowhere near the standards of past small prizes. They look decent, but that’s about it, maybe it’s to compensate the fact that there are 11 figures in the set.

Last Prize / Double Chance

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

The last prize variant of Hawks have a darker tone in the wings and clothes and closed mouth, which you cannot really tell the difference, which is also why this is a good way to obtain Hawks if you didn’t manage to pull prize D! I am always a fan of last prize being a variant of a unique figure instead of the common ones! This will act as a great motivator for buy outs!

You can look for a 8- buyout or 15- with at least 1 figure still inside.

You can also hope for a double chance win!

Conclusion

Good Kuji set. This Kuji focuses heavily on the top prize while the small prize still looks decent. It’s a very fitting theme to introduce the baddies too. A lot of debuting characters is not a bad thing too. By introducing new characters in this set, it gives me hope that they will eventually release more characters in the future set and that alone makes me excited to get more MHA Kuji stuff in the future!

Recommendation

5 tickets for a chance at a figure.

Collectibles? : Great to keep Endeavour, Hawks and the villains.
