Series Sequel: 83rd One Piece Kuji set! 4th in 2022

One Piece is back and for a series to run this long, I am surprise they still have fans being engaged with them! The last set features the Ladies of One Piece, so this set we will have more characters! Let’s see what they have for us!

For past One Piece Kuji, do look at One Piece Ichiban Kuji Prize Index List

Prize A (1 piece)

Top Prize Appearance: 44th

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Of course we are going to get Luffy as the A prize, but it’s not a bad thing! For starter, he is a rare piece so it’s hard to pull him! Secondly, the figure is amazing! You have him standing in a circle of fire effect which looks gorgeous and such a nice figure with such a rarity will definitely have value, thus, no harm pulling it! Even though he appeared that many times before :/

Prize B (1 piece)

Top Prize Appearance: 2nd

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Wow it’s been so long since we had a Katakuri figure! He looks almost as amazing here with him signature ground smashing pose and also a good effect base, I mean as a collector if you don’t have the previous figure, this would be a good time to get him! Also a rare piece!

Prize C (1 piece)

Top Prize Appearance: 4th

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Doflamingo is also back and this is the first figure that has effect parts! The slashing effect and base definitely give a good touch to the figure overall and fans can definitely invest in this figure because of the rarity!

Prize D (1 piece)

Top Prize Appearance: 3rd

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Wow there is a list of returning characters and even though most of them has release before, they are release very long time ago so feels fresh for newer fans! Rob Lucci returns again and this time round he debuts in his leopard form! Which looks great and has amazing effect part as well! Also a rare figure so definitely nothing bad for pulling him!

Prize E (2 pieces)

Top Prize Appearance: Debut!

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Finally we have a debuting character! Enel looks great here with the weapon and effect base! Wow, this line of figures are amazing. What is so great is that there are 2 pieces of him in a set, so for collectors that already has the previous versions of the above characters, they can just look out for this one! So far I am very impressed.

Prize F (1 piece)

Top Prize Appearance: 2nd

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Also making his return is Sir Crocodile who has a release very long ago, so feels fresh to see him again! Like the others, he also has a great effect part and also a rare piece so means any figure that you pull from this set will have value!

Prize G (24 pieces)

Design: 8

Distribution: 8 x 3 pieces each. Blind box.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

The small prize section kicks off with the glasses, they look good, the characters in the design are rather random, would hope they at least feature the ones in the top prizes, but oh well. The back of the glass is the character’s favorite quote in Japanese so not a bad design for a glass.

Prize H (25 pieces)

Design: 12

Distribution: 1 x 3 pieces each. 11 x 2 pieces each.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Next we have visual sheet and they look amazing! The art is just gorgeous and if you are a One Piece fan, you will appreciate the art. It’s A3 in size so really nothing bad.

Prize I (24 pieces)

Design: 8

Distribution: 8 x 3 pieces each.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3 out of 5.

So last and maybe the least, we have long towels. At least it’s a long towel for the price that you are paying and the art is decent, each features 2 characters, still I have seen better design, but won’t rate it so low as it is long towel.

Last Prize

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Well if you are unable to pull Prize A or you like this monotone color variant for Luffy then buying out is the only way to obtain this! You can look for a 10- buyout or 17- with at least one other figures!

Conclusion

Well if you seen the quality of the top prizes, you know that this is a good set! We have a bunch of returning rarely seen characters and even Luffy looks good! The small prizes are decent, I mean they are small prizes, so you should have your own expectations of them.

Odds

Let’s calculate your odds to get the following with one ticket from a fresh board!

Chance to get a top prize (A to F): 7 / 80 = 8.75%, lower than usual 😦

Recommendation

3 tickets for a chance at a figure or look for a good buyout if you really want to collect the figures!

Collectibles? : For new collectors, getting B to F would be great to your collection! Returing collectors should focus on what you don’t have and hardcore collector can aim for every piece of figurine if you have the spare and budget!
