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

Series Sequel: 22nd Evangelion Kuji set, 3rd in 2022

Great to see another Eva set being released, the idea of having more than 1 Eva Units in a set is working well for fans, hope this doesn’t end anytime soon! Let’s get right into the prizes!

Prize A (2 pieces) / Double Chance

Top Prize Appearance: 7th

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Well, whenever we get an Eva Unit for a prize, it’s the best thing for a fan. Eva Unit 01 appears the most, as expected, this figure is different as it shows the out of control form and also the base that comes with it is a little special, so fans would want to get their hands on this too even if they have previous versions. Great prize to kick start the set!

You can also win this via double chance too if you aren’t lucky enough to pull this!

Prize B (2 pieces)

Top Prize Appearance: 20th

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

That’s all the Eva Unit you can pull from this set, the rest are human characters. That being said, Asuka looks great here, I mean her costume alone will attract fans as it’s different, I believe everyone would want different versions of Asuka so nothing bad for pulling this piece!

Prize C (2 pieces)

Top Prize Appearance: 16th

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Similarly for Rei, nothing bad about this version of her figure as she wears something different from her usual figure, at least fans would appreciate the overall figure if it’s not similar. So again, nothing bad for pulling this as well, it’s a figure nonetheless.

Prize D (2 pieces)

Top Prize Appearance: 5th

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

I am usually quite unattracted to human figures when it comes to Eva Kuji, but this time round they do feel unique! Kaworu dons his casual clothes which differentiates from his other figures, so again you don’t feel like you are getting the same thing from the previous set! So far the figures are good.

Prize E (28 pieces)

Design: 15

Distribution: 13 x 2 pieces each. 2 x 1 piece each. Blind packs.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Eva Kuji set has a bad record of having below average kind of small prizes, however, this acrylic stand is something different! They do looks great and if I were to get a small prize, I would want something that are worth my ticket cost and also good for collectors, these acrylic stands are just that! You have all different characters ranging from the main characters to the side characters, good to collect if you asked me.

Prize F (20 pieces)

Design: 5 long, 5 small

Distribution: 10 x 2 pieces each.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Okay so we are getting towels for this set, but the good news is that we are getting good design towels! The design for this set of towels has a 90s game pixel theme, the long towels feature a different Eva Units and the small one features the humans, so very unique design and feels special, I think that’s the kind of effort we hope to see from Bandai for all kinds of Kuji!

Prize G (24 pieces)

Design: 12

Distribution: 12 x 2 pieces each.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Lastly, we have the folder which features all the characters in the acrylic stand. Not bad but would be great if they at least include another side with the Eva Units, since everyone are fans of the Eva Unit. They do give us a sticker for each prize as well, so not that bad entirely, just not the best folder set we encounter thus far.

Last Prize

Top Prize Appearance: 3rd, debut as Pseudo Evolution

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Wow, just wow. This is the first time we are getting a unique Eva Unit exclusive to the last prize! So if you want this, you have to buyout the set, no other ways! Eva Unit 13 looks amazing here, the pure white form looks great and even if you have the previous figure, this is a special version that you probably don’t want to miss! You can lookout for a 15- buyout or 25- if A if still around!

Conclusion

A good set, the Eva Units are great, the human figures feels special and the acrylic stand is something fresh for collectors. This set brings out the possibly that Eva Kuji can be good and consistent too, so looking forward for such standards or better ones in the future!

Recommendation

3 tickets for a chance at the figures! or wait for a good buyout!

Collectibles? : Both Eva Unit 01 and 13 are great to collect for collectors. The human figures are good to keep but if you are only interested in the Eva Units, then you can skip them. The towels and Acrylic Stand are good to keep if they don’t take you too much effort to collect.
