Ichiban Kuji JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Stone Ocean

Retail Price: 850 Yen

Total Tickets: 80

Released Date: 12 Mar 2022

Ichiban Kuji: Selectable prizes for non-blinds small prizes. Double chance included if your country carries this Kuji.

Series Sequel: 10th JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Kuji, first in 2022.

We are back with another yearly JoJo’s Kuji! This set features the theme from the Stone Ocean story so you will see characters from there.

Prize A (3 pieces)

Top Prize Appearance: 2nd

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Jolyne Cujoh kicks off the set with an amazing figure. Definitely fitting for the set and being the only female JoJo also makes things a little unique for collector. Her figure does appear in past set but this version is Masterlise, so expect good quality compared to the previous release. Definitely good to have her in your collection.

Prize B (1 piece)

Top Prize Appearance: Debut!

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

So if you are wondering if we are going to get all kinds of JoJo for every set, don’t worry, we have the side characters too. Ermes Costello looks great too and feels a little different by having a non-JoJo character. The only issue is that there is only 1 piece in the set, I feel that they could have given 2 pieces each.

Prize C (1 piece)

Top Prize Appearance: Debut!

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

FF also makes a debut as a big prize and always good to see more variety of characters so your figure collection can expand to a wider range. Again, not sure why they are making the non-JoJo unique piece in every set, good thing is you will definitely get a higher value for the rare pieces.

Prize D (3 pieces)

Top Prize Appearance: 4th

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

If you miss the OG JoJo characters, fear not, Jotaro Kujo is here. He is one of the guys that have a lot of releases for figures in the past. Despite that, this is his only 2nd time appearing in a Masterlise Figure, so no harm pulling or collecting this piece too. 3 pieces for the JoJo is a bit too much, I would have preferred 2 pieces each.

Prize E (18 pieces)

Design: 6

Distribution: 6 x 3 pieces each.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Giving small pouch bags as a small prize feels different for a Kuji fan. So I wouldn’t mind getting some of these in my pulls. They featured the characters from the story and the designs are good. It’s also easy to get all 6 designs if you are buying a lot of tickets. Not a bad prize, at least it’s usable in a lot of ways, such as storing the other small prizes.

Prize F (24 pieces)

Design: 6

Distribution: 6 x 4 pieces each. Blind box.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

A cup isn’t as bad for a small prize too. The design features the characters from the top prizes and their logo. No complains.

Prize G (30 pieces)

Design: 10

Distribution: 10 x 3 pieces each. Blind Box.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Charms are like one of the least preferred items, but then they do make them look nice for this set, so at least it’s not a terrible prize. The designs are great and it’s a big charm if you are concern that you are not getting your money worth.

Last Prize / Double Chance

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

If you want Prize A but didn’t manage to pull one, you can consider a buy out. A variant of Jolyne Cujoh with only the top differs in color. You can lookout for a 10- buyout or 20- with at least 1 other figure inside.

It’s also a double chance prize, so if you really want it, you have a shot at it.

Collector’s Value

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Overall: B-

Conclusion

JoJo set is quite okay, nothing too bad; they have the standard 8 figures and 72 small prizes ratio. The only drawback is the tickets are a bit costly and the small prizes don’t really justify the price, but they are nowhere near bad prizes.

Recommendation

5 tickets for a chance for at least 1 big figure

Collectibles? : Prize A to C is a must for collectors, D if you don’t mind getting more Jotaro. The small prizes are great but no need to go for the extra mile to collect everything.
