Retail Price: 790 Yen

Total Tickets: 80

Released Date: 9 Jul 2022

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

Series Sequel: 5th QQ Kuji, second in 2022!

The QQ sisters are back once again, and the last set was a bit of a disappointment for some of the fans, but fret not, we have figures once again for this set! So let’s check out the prizes!

Prize A/B/C/D/E (2 pieces each)

Design: 5

Distribution: 5 x 2 pieces each. You get what you pull, each character will be indicated in the tickets.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Alright so nothing bad about figures for any QQ set! The sisters are dressed in their Kimono outfit and each has a distinct design and color! As always, you either will hope to get all 5 as a set or the character you want, either way, excellent figure, no disappointment this time round!

Prize F/G/H/I/J (3 pieces each)

Design: 5

Distribution: 5 x 2 pieces each. You get what you pull, each character will be indicated in the tickets.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

So immediately we go to the small prize section, I mean the illustration board isn’t that small, no pun intended, each design only has 4 pieces in a set and you can only get them upon pulling the matching ticket! They are B5 in size, so relatively big, so with the quality and rarity, they will cover your ticket cost, so fear not. The art features the sisters in their Kimono outfit.

Prize K (10 pieces)

Design: 5

Distribution: 5 x 2 pieces each. Blind box.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Mini figures will never go wrong! The sisters have another set that has mini figures, this time round also in their Kimono outfit and they are Chokokko figures. I expected more mini figures in a set since the ticket cost are more expensive.

Prize L (15 pieces)

Design: 5

Distribution: 5 x 3 pieces each.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Next we have smaller illustration board, they are 17cm long, they have the same art as the B5 ones just the characters are being zoomed instead of full body art. Nothing bad, just felt a bit repetitive.

Prize M (30 pieces)

Design: 10

Distribution: 10 x 3 piece each. Blind box.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Lastly, we have rubber charms, they do look adorable with the design differs from previous releases, all the designs are from the 2 different Kimono outfit featured in the set.

Last Prize / Double Chance

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3 out of 5.

So once again, we are getting an A3 illustration board featuring all 5 sisters for the last prize. Not a bad design, just feels like it’s not something too attractive for an immediate buyout. You can look for a 3- buyout or 10- if there is at least 1 figure if you want this prize.

Well it’s also a double chance prize, so why not.

Conclusion

For a costly ticket, I would have a higher expectations for all the prizes but regardless the figures looks great, the non figure small prizes and the overwhelming number of charms could be improved, but hey, we got a few good sets from them before, so just saying Bandai could adjust their prize distribution a little.

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 E): 10 / 80 = 12.5%, slightly above average.

Chance to get a figure prize (A to E or K): 20 / 80 = 25%, great.

Recommendation

3 tickets for a chance at a figure prize!

Collectibles? : I believe the illustration boards and rubber charms are not essential to keep, focus on the big and mini figures, only get all the small prizes if you are a hardcore fan.
