This set of My Hero Academia features the main characters where they first debut in the anime, the figure line is Masterlise, so expect good quality figure! Let’s see what they have for us!

Prize A (2 pieces)

Top Prize Appearance: 11th

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Of course we are getting Midoriya here, but what is so great about this figure is that his posture is different, more importantly, he wore his classic outfit! He also comes with an interchangeable hear where he dons his mask, which looks fantastic overall! Collectors would want to have their hands on this!

Prize B (3 pieces)

Top Prize Appearance: 11th

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

I am not sure why Bakugo is always the figure that has the more pieces in a set, I guess more people are a fan of him in Japan? Regardless, his figure looks great as well, just feels very repetitive, perhaps his classic outfit resembles his current one. Regardless, it’s a figure, so no harm getting it!

Prize C (2 pieces)

Top Prize Appearance: 9th

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

I know most people feels Shoto’s first outfit is ridiculous, but he does look different from the other figures and this would make a good addition to your collection just because of that! This figure also has him using only his ice power, which I thought was cool, no pun intended!

Prize D (1 piece)

Top Prize Appearance: 2nd

Prize Rating:

Rating: 5 out of 5.

What is Hero Academia without All Might! This is his first Masterlise figure and his second overall Kuji figure! Excellent pose and it’s a taller figure compared to the others! He is a rare piece, so if you are able to pull him then good for you! Definitely the piece to look out for in the set!

Prize E (24 pieces)

Design: 8

Distribution: 8 x 3 pieces each.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

We now proceed to the small prize section, which we have small sling pouch to kick start the prizes. Not a bad prize if you ask me, the design features the heroes’ face on one side and their custume on the other! Design looks good, you can use it to keep your smaller items or bring it out, so no harm pulling it as well!

Prize F (24 pieces)

Design: 24

Distribution: 8 x 3 pieces each. Blind box

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Charms are usually not appreciated, especially recent ones where the design feels a bit lazy. That’s not the case here! The charms looks great! They have a theme where it’s black and white sketch of the heroes, which I thought was brilliant! It makes thing a little different. The thing that can make it better is having more characters.

Prize G (24 pieces)

Design: 10

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

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Again, normally I wouldn’t have rated towels so highly, but they are giving us long towels and also the design looks okay, it features a lot of heroes from class 1A and All Might, and the color sort of mix well to form a rainbow, so that at least appeals to people.

Last Prize / Double Chance

Prize Rating:

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Wow we are getting All Might, a rare figure for the last prize! This variant is a shinier version, but I would gladly take it if I am unable to pull Prize D! You can look for a 10- buyout or 16- with at least 1 figure still inside.

You can also hope for a double chance win!


Big Prize

Small Prize

Last Prize

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Variety of Prize

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Odds of big prizes

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Value for Money

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Collector’s Value

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Overall: B


A good set that is standard for a Kuji, 8 figures in 80 tickets. The small prizes are not too bad and the figures are amazing, so nothing bad about the set, they could always make worse prizes.


5 tickets for a chance at a figure or lookout for a good buyout for All Might!

Collectibles? : Midoriya, Shoto and All Might are great Masterlise figures to collect! As for Bakugo, if you already have previous versions, then no point having him as he looks similar. For small prizes, they don’t look like something that will have collection value, but if you want to collect for fun, the charms are fine.
