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

Series Sequel: 5th Gunpla Kuji set! 1st in 2022!

Gunpla are back with another Kuji! So every year they only have 1 Kuji set that will feature various grade of models and some small prizes, so let’s see what they have for us this year!

Prize A (1 piece) / Double Chance

Top Prize Appearance: Debut!

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

We kick things off with a MG Exia Gundam ! So for the price that you are paying and for a shot at a MG Gunpla, I would say it’s a great deal! Exia looks great here with the weapons and the retail release does not have the translucent chest and foot piece so you are definitely getting something different here! Only 1 in a set so definitely valuable!

You can also win this via double chance too!

Prize B (2 pieces)

Top Prize Appearance: Debut!

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Exia isn’t the only MG Gundam, we have Barbatos Gundam also making it’s debut here! The head piece is translucent but it doesn’t look too drastically different from the retail releases. Great that there are 2 pieces of this in a set so higher odds of getting this! Basically nothing can go wrong if you pull a MG Gunpla.

Prize C (8 pieces)

Top Prize Appearance: 2nd

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

That’s all the MG, but don’t lose hope! The HG grade Gunpla are not far off! Barbatos appears again but this time as a HG Gunpla. HG is definitely not as good as MG, but there are more of this going around in a set so you are definitely not losing out! Even if you pull this in a ticket or 2, you are still lucky! I mean come out, HG is not that bad, it’s still a Gunpla!

Prize D (8 pieces)

Top Prize Appearance: 2nd

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Next we also have another Entry Grade Gunpla in the form of Strike Gundam. It appeared last year but it doesn’t come with the Bazooka so you would want a piece of this! And again, nothing bad about Gunpla, a lot to go around too!

Prize E (5 pieces)

Top Prize Appearance: Debut!

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Wow we are still at the top prize section! Instead of a HG, we have SD Gunpla for 00 Gundam! It’s a cuter series and nothing bad at all! It’s translucent in color really differentiate itself from the retail release! And again, nothing bad about pulling this piece!

Prize F (20 pieces)

Design: 10

Distribution: 2 x 10 pieces each.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

So we are now at the small prize section, I know for Gunpla fans they are into the Gunpla and not any of the small prizes, but from a price point, they do have to fill out with small prizes. The long towels look great, they have design that follows a standard MG Gunpla side of the box and it’s a long towel, so nothing bad and you can choose your favorite Gundam!

Prize G (20 pieces)

Design: 10

Distribution: 2 x 10 pieces each.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Next we have visual sheet, they are A3 size and feature a lot of characters! The design follows the MG box cover so it’s like you display your box without taking up too much space since it’s a thin board!

Prize D (16 pieces)

Design: 8

Distribution: 2 x 8 pieces each.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Lastly, we have acrylic charm, which looks great! They also have the design that follows the MG box cover but now you can hang it around your bag! It’s the thick acrylic charm so nothing bad as well!

Last Prize

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

So if you really want Exia MG Gundam and couldn’t pull it or win via double chance, then you can consider a buyout! This version is a polar opposite of Prize A in terms of the translucent part, everything opaque in prize A is now translucent and vice versa! So definitely unique on it’s own!

You can look for a 15- buyout or 25- if A or B is still inside and hopefully several HG and SD inside too to get a fantastic buyout!

Conclusion

Definitely a great Kuji! Gunpla Kuji has never fail to amaze me! There are a lot of model kits for people to win and they are good quality ones too! Even the small prizes isn’t so bad! The characters are also new so collector will feel fresh! I feel like everyone can be a winner and hope they continue doing this next year!

Recommendation

1 ticket at a time till you get a model kit or go for a good buyout!

Collectibles? : Exia and Barbatos MH are definitely things you could collect, the HG and SD are great to collect too, I also feel the small prizes wouldn’t be too crazy to collect since this Kuji don’t come out that often!
