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

Prize A (2 pieces) / Double Chance

Figure Line: Softvic

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

The series continues to release the main Rider every year as the top prize. If you are collecting the Softvic figures, then you will want Revi to be part of that collection as well. Amazing sculpture and details. It’s also the double chance prize for this set, so if you can’t pull it, you have a second chance of winning it.

Prize B (2 pieces)

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

The Rider Kick is the signature move of every rider, to get a visual sheet that has half the main riders is definitely appealing, you will get the other half in vol 2. It’s an A3 sheet so big enough to display. It’s also as hard to pull as Prize A, so definitely has some value in it.

Prize C (24 pieces)

Design: 10

Distribution: 4 x 3 pieces each. 6 x 2 pieces each.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

The visual sheet continues to be released and you have all showa riders, first 10 heisei, next 10 heisei, Zero One, Saber, Revi and Vice, the Amazons, and first rider of every era.

B4 size, similar to past visual sheet, so you can expand your collection. If not you can just take the ones you like and just appreciate them. Great anniversary prize.

Prize D (20 pieces)

Design: 8

Distribution: 4 x 3 pieces each, 4 x 2 pieces each. Blind box.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Glass are not that bad, moreover the design for most of them are really good. You have Revi and Vice, the first rider of every era, the 10th and 20th Heisei Rider, Shocker, some random riders and all main rider logo design.

Each of you probably have your preferred design but all looks great in general and feels like an anniversary prize.

Prize E (22 pieces)

Figure Line: Deform X

Design: 22

Distribution: 22 x 1 piece each. Blind Box.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Wow, this is what an anniversary is all about. We have the first set of main riders and it features the Showa Riders for the first time! We also get reissue of the Heisei Riders as well as Saber. It’s okay, they all have their own value, so no harm pulling them again. Not forgetting Revi and Vice, which are this year’s Riders! We also have Amazon Omega which is surprising!

What makes this prize so special is that they each have their unique base which has their name, year and logo! So if you add Vol 2 Riders you would get all main riders completed!

Last Prize

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

So if you are unable to pull A or win the double chance, buying out would be a good idea to get your hands on Revi! This variant has the light up eyes, you might even want to get both A and Last! Lookout for a 10- buyout or if 20- if there at least 6 mini figures left!

Camapgin Special Prize

Design: 11

Distribution: 4 x 2 pieces each. 7 x 1 piece each. While Stock Last.

For every 3 tickets purchased, you will get a bookmark for free! The bookmark is double sided and can act as a background for your mini figures. Only 15 are available, so first come first serve.

Conclusion

The first Kuji of the year kicked off very well with a list of great anniversary prizes! Each of them have their own appeal to make you want to collect them, it’s also an anniversary special so the quality tends to be better.

Recommendation

15 tickets to get 5 bookmarks and also you have a good chance of pulling some mini figures.

Collectibles? : A and/or Last is definitely a must if you have your softvic collection. For E, the showa riders as well as Revi and Vice and Amazon are going to be popular as they have never been released, but generally you can try to collect all of them for long term value. As for the small prizes, B looks good to collect, C and D only focus on the group logos or riders if you want to keep them for long, I will say if you are collecting, just try to get everything in this set.
