For past Kuji prizes, do check out My Hero Academia Ichiban Kuji Prize Index List

Prize A (1 piece)

Top Prize Appearance: 3rd

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Wow we are not starting things off with Midoriya but Endeavour instead! Endeavour looks great here, I mean he is the No 1 hero after all. The figures this time round is the smaller kind, but not as small as you think, this figure stands 20cm tall so it’s consistent with previous collection! His pose is also different from the previous releases and if you haven’t gotten any Endeavour figure, now would be a good time to do so! Rare piece as well, so not easy to pull!

Prize B (1 piece)

Top Prize Appearance: 4th

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Next is the No 2 Hero Hawks. He again has a different pose from his other figures in the past, for one he is standing on the ground instead of in flight position and no weapon or attack pose. he looks chill here. The figure is 17cm tall, again if you don’t have previous releases now is a good time to jump in! Rare figure as well.

Prize C (1 piece)

Top Prize Appearance: Debut!

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Next is the debuting No 3 Hero Blue Jeanist! He looks great and not flashy pose just him with his signature gesture when he is about to use his quirk! Figure is at 19cm tall, so taller than average, I mean he looks tall in the series so this is kind of expected, another rare figure, this one will be hot since both recurring and new collectors will want to get this!

Prize D (1 piece)

Top Prize Appearance: Debut!

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Going down the list we have No 4 Hero Edge Shot and wow he looks amazing here! His shinobi pose feels different, this figure stands 17cm tall and again rare piece so for recurring and new collectors, you will really need to keep an eye on this piece!

Prize E (2 pieces)

Top Prize Appearance: Debut!

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

And last hero on the list is the No 5 Hero Mirko! She looks gorgeous doesn’t she. At 16cm tall the figurines seems to fit on scale according to the anime, so that’s good. Thankfully there are 2 pieces of her figure to go around, so this would be the easiest new hero to pull, that being said, that doesn’t mean it’s not valuable and there could be collector who just want her figure!

Prize F (1 piece)

Top Prize Appearance: 15th

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Of course we cannot avoid the inevitable that Midoriya will be in the set. He looks great here for a figure that appear very often, no effect this time round, different pose and rare piece, so good to pull him, but not obligated to if you already have his past figure (should be fairly easy to get one of those), figure is 13cm tall as expected from a youth character.

Prize G (1 piece)

Top Prize Appearance: 15th

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Well if there is Midoriya we can kind of expect Bakugo to be next in the list. Once again that doesn’t mean that their figures are bad in anyway, just no obligation to collect them if you already have at least one of their past figures! The figure stands at 13.5cm, luckily only 1 in the set, so at least there’s a rarity value so it might be easier for you to trade or sell if you don’t intend to keep it!

Prize H (25 pieces)

Design: 20

Distribution: 5 x 2 pieces each. 15 x 1 piece each. Blind packs.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

We now move into the small prize section and the acrylic stand kicks things off with very appealing designs! All the heroes + our main 2 characters are featured, when they feature the non-main characters that does feel different! It also makes us feel like we need to get all 20 of them, I mean doesn’t look nice if you only display some of them right! 9cm acrylic stand, nothing bad at all, will definitely be valuable and might even cover half your ticket cost if you don’t intend to keep it!

Prize I (23 pieces)

Design: 12

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

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Normally towels are a no for me, but then these are long towels (60cm long) and they are also continuation from the previous releases from the Let’s Begin series! You get another 12 more designs and all are hero characters, very fitting to the theme! The towels shows their name, birthday and quirk, so if you have collected the previous 10 character towels, good to keep up the collection!

Prize J (25 pieces)

Design: 12

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

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Well continuing from the previous rubber charm series we have 12 more heroes to be added to your collection! Okay maybe not all 12 since Endeavour, Hawks and Eraser Head appeared before but in different poses, the collection fits in well with your other circle charms so good to collect too if you already started a collection! I like that they are making the small prizes valuable from simple things like that!

Last Prize / Double Chance

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Well if you really want a Bakugo and you couldn’t pull it, you can look for a buyout, this variant is a Shiny version of Prize G, you can also look for a good buyout and get this figure along with it! A 8- buyout or 15- with at least one Hero figure will be good!

You will also be able to win this via double chance!

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 G): 8 / 80 = 10%, average

Recommendation

3 tickets for a chance at a figure or look for a good buyout if you are collecting the Heroes!

Collectibles? : Well getting C, D and E is surely a must for new and returning collectors, A, B, F, G are all optional depending if you want to collect them because you like them or you want everything. The small prizes are good to collect if you have their previous similar collection or if you want to start the acrylic collection!
