Ichiban Kuji S.H.Figuarts Kamen Rider

It’s great to see another Kamen Rider Kuji, this time round is a little different as the top prizes are not Softvic figures but SH Figuarts! A change in product feels fresh and don’t worry, if you are a Kamen Rider fan, this will suit you as well.

For past Kuji prizes for Kamen Rider, do check out Kamen Rider Ichiban Kuji Full Prize List

Retail Price: SGD16.50/ 700Yen

Total Tickets: 80

Released Date: 23 Oct 2021

Everything seems normal apart from the fact that SG has no local stock, so look out for shops that brings in Japan Exclusive Kuji, we will also be reviewing the Kuji for the SGD price.

Prize A (2 pieces)

Saber kicks off the prize as he is the latest Rider thus far, okay maybe Revice is out but then again Revice Kuji will be later than this, regardless it’s a great figure and for those that didn’t know this version is translucent, so different from the original SHF. He is the only rider in the set to have a weapon too.

Prize B (2 pieces)

Zero One is next and he looks great too, just wish they included his weapon but I guess they are just replicating from the SHF (the original version does not have his weapon, you have to buy SHF Vulcan to get it). Still if you are a Rider fan this would be great to your collection.

Prize C (2 pieces)

Zi O doesn’t look too different from his original SHF but still looks a bit different. He also doesn’t come with his weapon, I feel Bandai is a little lazy, like they could just include this piece with the weapon so it looks more attractive, but guess the only different is the translucent variation.

Prize D (2 pieces)

Build doesn’t have much difference from his original SHF as well so it might not be as demanding, however, it’s still a good figure, no weapons as well which is really a pity, they could have given us these little accessory and make us happier, but oh well, at least they are making all the top prizes 2 pieces each, they could always make one of them rarer.

Prize E (26 pieces)

At least this small prizes are the continuation of previous prizes. The Visual Sheet are the same size as the ones from Saber No 1 and Saber No 2 and some of the Riders are exclusive to this set such as Kiva, Black and Ichigo! The others are repeated but looks great too so not a bad prize and plenty in the set.

Distribution: 8 designs, 6 of them have 3 pieces, 2 have 4 pieces each.

Prize F (20 pieces)

The pouches are back! I believe they came out before long time ago or at least similar items did. These pouches are quite big and can be used to contain your valuables or just display them. It’s usable and nice, which is something you can’t really say for Kuji items nowadays.

Distribution: 8 designs, 4 has 2 pieces, 4 has 3 pieces each in a set.

Prize G (26 pieces)

Coasters are really not that popular but these coasters at least look decent and they are compatible to your SHF! Just place your figuarts on top of them! But for $17 I don’t think I would feel happier to pull it, I mean there are way more Coasters than figures, so you will have more people ending up with coasters and no figure.

Distribution: 8 designs, 6 has 3 pieces, 2 has 4 pieces each in a set.

All small prizes are not blinded but the set is not locally distributed so if you ever need to collect everything, just buy from those that are not collecting or you know, just hunt it down from overseas.

Last Prize

Very special Last Prize here! A unique figure and also a villain of Zero One, no complains and Horobi SHF is P Bandai Exclusive and over here you can get it by buying out the set! Weapons not included too, so take note

Grading

CriteriaScore (Upon 10)Remarks
Design7Simple SHF theme that has at least one small prize compatible with the top prize.
Top Prizes8SHF has really good quality and it’s translucent versions so they are all exclusive to this Kuji set.
Small Prizes8Visual Sheet: Great continuation from previous set
Pouches: Usable
Coaster: Can be used as a stand for the SHF
Last Prize8Unique
Great translucent variant
Original figure is exclusive
Monetary Value6The small prizes are great just maybe not worth $16.50 that much, I don’t think you will feel a visual sheet or coaster being worth that much, but you get a good chance of getting a SHF that cost minimally $60.
Collection Value7SHF: Good for SHF collectors, if you are more into the Worldlise or Softvice or Deform X stuff then you can skip this

Visual Sheet: Just get Kiva, Black and Ichigo for collection

Coaster/Pouches: Great items, but not worth to collect all just to sell them.
Overall73.33%(B)A good set, they are good prizes overall, and will be graded higher if we have local set that cost a bit cheaper, still if you are a Rider fan, you can consider buying a few tickets.

Recommendation

1 to 5 tickets to try luck for a figure, if you really want them just hunt it down directly,

Good luck for you pulls! Let me know what did you get!
