Retail Price: 750 Yen

Total Tickets: 80

Released Date: 7 Sep 2022

Online Ichiban Kuji: Selectable prizes for non-blinds small prizes. Double chance included only for Japanese address. Kuji available only online in their official webstore.

Series Sequel: 86th One Piece Kuji set! 7th in 2022!

At this point I am not surprised that we are getting a lot of One Piece Kuji in a year, this set is online exclusive and it’s also the continuation of the Akazaya Nine set back in July! So I believe the other half of the members will be featured here!

For past Kuji set, do visit One Piece Ichiban Kuji Prize Index List

Prize A (2 pieces)

Top Prize Appearance:Debut!

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

To kick start the second half of the Nine Red Scabbards, we have Kin’emon, he looks great here, the figure is 10.5cm tall, smaller than usual but consistent with the previous set, so if you collecting, no stopping here!

Prize B (2 pieces)

Top Prize Appearance: Debut!

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Denjiro continues the line up and he looks great and everyone seems to be drawing their sword out ready to fight, consistent pose and fits well with every other figure, 2 to go around too, nothing bad!

Prize C (2 pieces)

Top Prize Appearance: 2nd

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

A returning character! Nekomamushi last appeared in the Elephant country set back in 2016, so it’s been a while, also great to see some difference between his previous release, very nice and bulky figure, basically at this point you probably will go all in or won’t stop this collection.

Prize D (1 piece)

Top Prize Appearance:Debut!

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

OMG, why are things so uneven here! This is the 8th member of the Nine Red Scabbards and we are only getting 1 piece of Kanjuro?! This makes him a very valuable piece and you really need get a good buyout or pray hard to pull him because I believe everyone who is playing will most likely collect all 9 of them. Not sure of the logic from Bandai, but anyway it’s a good figure, should totally have 2 pieces in a set!

Prize E (2 pieces)

Top Prize Appearance: Debut

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Although not an official Nine Red Scabbards, Izou does look great and will look good in your line up of figures! This is totally the figure that should get the rare piece, not the essential Nine Red Scabbards…

Prize F (21 pieces)

Design: 6

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

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Next up, we have Visual sheet to kick off the small prize section. Similar to the first edition, they are B4 size and the art looks fantastic, would appreciate more design but I don’t think anyone is out here for the small prize so that’s fine.

Prize G (20 pieces)

Design: 6

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

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Again continuing from the previous set, we have glass plates, featuring 4 of the remaining straw hat crew as well as Kid and Law. They look great, and also something nice to keep if you already have the first 6 plates, I mean it’s not common they give you a complete small prize, so if they do you can just keep.

Prize H (30 pieces)

Design: 12

Distribution: 6 x 3 pieces each. 6 x 2 pieces each. Blind box.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Again continuing from the previous set we have charms, all the characters here did not appear in the previous set, so they are clearly trying to give us as many characters as possible! Again the back of the charm is the character’s favorite quote in Japanese, very nice detail and not a bad prize.

Last Prize / Double Chance

Top Prize Appearance: 4th, 2nd in dragon form.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Very nice to see Kaido once again and this time round he appears smaller to be consistent with the other figures. So only a small part of his body is present. A good figure to keep, but not obligated to if you don’t intend to collect, do lookout for a good buyout if you want to keep him or you want a good value buyout; a 8- buyout or 15- with at least one figure is fine!

If not, you can hope for a double chance win.

Conclusion

So this set is clearly introducing the Nine Red Scabbard and you need to lookout for both sets to be able to complete your collection, at least it’s something different from their usual release and you can get some goodies along with it!

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): 9 / 80 = 11.25%, slightly higher than usual !

Recommendation

3 tickets for a chance at a figure or a good buyout for collection of all figures.

Collectibles? : For One Piece collector, A to D would be a good addition to your massive collection and if and only if you have the first 5 Nine Red scabbards. For slightly bigger fans, you can even get Izou and for hardcore collector, just get Kaido as well. The small prizes are good to keep if you already kept full set of the small prizes from the first set!
