Kirby is back and this time round we are celebrating the 30th anniversary of the game! If you are a fan, I believe the prizes here do feel a bit special since it’s an anniversary Kuji! Let’s see what they have for us!

Prize A (1 piece) / Double Chance

Top Prize Appearance: 4th

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

This is the 4th time we are getting a clock for the top prize, even so they design differs for each of them, and what is so great about this one is that it has the game sound and also Kirby does move if you want it to! Definitely a great prize for fans and collectors, sad that we are only getting 1 piece in a set.

However, you are able to win this via double chance! So don’t lose hope if you didn’t pull this!

Prize B (2 pieces)

Top Prize Appearance: 16th

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

We will definitely get a Kirby plush in each set, but what is cute about this is that it’s a simple posture with the 30th anniversary star, nothing too flashy and it’s a big plush so nothing bad upon pulling!

Prize C (6 pieces)

Design: 3

Distribution: 3 x 2 pieces each.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Okay so we reach the end of the big prizes, which is really odd for an anniversary Kuji. The small plush are not bad, we have the Star, grey Kirby and the Kirby trying to eat Waddle Dee (which is definitely the hot piece), it’s not blinded as well, so it’s not hard to collect all designs, but again, I think everyone will be aiming for the Kirby and Waddle Dee design first.

Prize D (20 pieces)

Design: 3 glasses, 3 plates

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

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

For an anniversary set, I thought more characters will be featured, but looks fine. The glasses feature Kirby’s expression while the plates’ design are the game intro scene, looks good, not bad for a small prize.

Prize E (21 pieces)

Design: 2 long, 5 small

Distribution: 2 x 3 pieces each. 3 x 5 pieces each.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Again, towels are pretty much not what any collectors would want, but the designs are great. The long towel feature a game scene and Kirby design, the small towels feels unique so overall, I would say not too bad for the towels.

Prize F (20 pieces)

Design: 6

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

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Lastly we have some lovely charms. It’s metallic and each design features Kirby in a different timeline so you can pick the ones that is most memorable for you! It’s shape like a key so it does look good overall, and again for an anniversary set would hope for more designs!

Last Prize

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

If you really want so figurine related prize and couldn’t get the A prize, then buying out wouldn’t be a bad idea too! The calendar prize makes it’s debut here! You can use it as an amazing display piece and what is great is that it also comes with Kirby and Waddle Dee figure! You can lookout for a 10- buyout or 16- if A or B is still inside!

Conclusion

The prizes are good, but what I feel lacks is the anniversary vibe, it feels like a standard Kuji, the big prizes aren’t enough too, but they do compensate with better small prizes. Even so, the variety of prizes isn’t there and I think they could use this chance to make some collectibles like mini figures or fancy small prizes since it’s an anniversary set.

Recommendation

3 tickets for a chance at a the top prize.

Collectibles? : A and Last are great to collect, and the small plush are good to collect too, but don’t spend too much on them as they will have similar ones in the future.
