It’s been a long while since we have an Ultraman Kuji! This time round we have the retro Ultraman being featured here! So nice to see the OG Ultraman, let’s see what this Kuji has for us!

Prize A (4 pieces)

Top Prize Appearance: Debut!

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Of course we are getting Ultraman for the A Prize! This is also the first time OG Ultraman has appear as a Kuji top prize! Wow, it’s about time, and this figure series is Masterlise so expect good quality! He also has the signature finisher pose. You definitely want to get your hands on this if you are a fan!

Prize B (2 pieces) / Double Chance

Top Prize Appearance: Variant of A

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

So if you are unable to pull Prize A, then Prize B is equally good or maybe even better! This variant of Ultraman has the same pose but is the shiny version! So if you are into that, then Prize B is for you! You can choose to get both or you know play until you get either A or B!

This is also a double chance prize, so you will have a second chance to win it!

Prize C (10 pieces)

Design: 2

Distribution: 2 x 5 pieces each. Blind box.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

With only 6 big prizes, we are getting better small prizes in the form of monster magnet heads! The quality of the monster head is as good as a standard figure so nothing bad! We have Neronga and Gabora for the design. Definitely a good consolation prize if you don’t pull A or B, but hope to have more designs in the future, would love to see more OG monsters being featured!

Prize D (12 pieces)

Design: 6

Distribution: 6 x 2 pieces each. Blind box.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

The glasses are not bad too, the designs look retro, like how they portray the characters in the 1960s, again, would like to see more monsters being featured. The design wise looks good, each one has a distinct character and color and even the logo design looks good.

Prize E (28 pieces)

Design: 1 long, 6 small.

Distribution: 7 x 4 pieces each.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Okay, we have to deal with towels eventually for many Kuji set. But in this case, they are not that bad, the design for the characters looks good, the long towel has the SSSP logo so if you are a fan, you would really appreciate that. It’s not the best prize, but still decent.

Prize F (24 pieces)

Design: 12

Distribution: 12 x 2 pieces each. Blind box.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Last but not the least we have coasters. The characters design has similarity to the ones in the towel, but at least they have 7 other designs that are different! They all represent items or characters relevant to the show, it’s a 60s show so things are a bit simpler, but at least they make it look good!

Last Prize

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

The last prize is the same as prize B! Shiny Masterlise Ultraman, so nothing bad at all! If you really want it and couldn’t or don’t think you can pull a Prize B, You can lookout for a 12- buyout with at least 2 Prize C or 18- buyout with at least Prize A or B inside!

Recommendation

5 tickets for a chance at Ultraman Figure or look for a good buyout!

Collectibles? : You will need to get either Prize A , B or Last for your Ultraman and both Prize C would be good to keep, this can kick start your Ultraman Collection!
