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

Series Sequel: 37th Kamen Rider Kuji set, 4th in 2022

With 2 great anniversary set early this year, one might have way higher expectations for Kamen Rider Kuji, W is being featured for this set and it’s related to their latest anime! So let’s see what they have in it for us!

For past Kuji prizes, do visit Kamen Rider Ichiban Kuji Full Prize List

Prize A (1 piece)

Top Prize Appearance: 2nd

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Of course Kamen Rider W will be the main cast for this Kuji and he stands tall as the top prize. The 20cm figure is a worldlise figure so you will get a base and a background! W has the second Worldlise figure but it’s a different pose and the sculpt relates more to the anime than the original series! So fans of the anime will want to get your hands on this!

Prize B (1 piece)/ Double Chance

Top Prize Appearance: Debut!

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Well having 2 figures is never a bad thing! This prize is almost as good or some might even find this better! You get both Shotaro and Philip Worldlise figure! I mean 2 figures in a prize, nothing can get better than this! It’s a pity that both top prizes are unique in a set, I mean would be great if they gave more pieces for more people are able to pull it…

This is a double chance prize! So if you didn’t pull this you have a shot to win it via the double chance, so don’t lose hope!

Prize C (13 pieces)

Design: 8

Distribution: 5 x 2 pieces each. 3 x 1 piece each.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Okay I think this is the prize that most people are into, the Deform X has been a tradition for Kamen Rider Kuji and this time round they follow the anniversary figure sculpt with each character having their logo and name printed on the stand! The humans are debut in the set while the riders are all re issue, so good time to collect them if you have missed out any of them! It’s a figure prize and I believe this would be a reason why people play the ticket even if the top prizes are gone!

Prize D (2 pieces)

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

The illustration board/visual sheet is a thing for Kamen Rider thus far, this piece is A3 in size, so big enough to showcase in your room. This is probably the top prize that you are not looking for, but won’t feel bad for pulling. The art is great, it’s a big item, so no harm.

Prize E (21 pieces)

Design: 8

Distribution: 5 x 3 pieces each. 3 x 2 pieces each.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Now officially into the small prize section, this is the art board, also something from the past, just that this time round it’s not blinded! The art is great, you get the rider art and also the human art, basically all are selectable, so I presume the riders will be more popular so do play early if you want the options to choose!

Prize F (21 pieces)

Design: 8

Distribution: 5 x 3 pieces each. 3 x 2 pieces each.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Next we have charms, and they are pretty good! We have the humans and their corresponding riders, the anime logo and also the Gaia memories! You get 2 memories in a prize! How I wish they could gave us more Gaia memories for the design, I bet they are going to be the popular ones, so again do play early if you want to pick them!

Prize G (21 pieces)

Design: 8

Distribution: 5 x 3 pieces each. 3 x 2 pieces each.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Lastly we have towels, the designs are nice, they do look attractive in their own ways, we have the humans and their corresponding riders again, we also have the Fuuto mascot and W design, basically not bad, hope they do have more designs.

Last Prize

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Well if you are unable to pull prize A, why not just go for the buyout! The variant is not much different, only the background is Shotaro and Philip instead! You can look for a 10- buyout or 25- if prize B is still inside and hopefully at least 4 mini figures!

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Collector’s Value

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Overall: B-

Conclusion

Well it’s an average set, not for the wrong reason but the odds don’t really favor the buyer. Good top prizes, just not enough to convict people to buy a lot of tickets. The mini figures are great too but only 3 are new characters, so that does affect buyer’s definition. All in all, a decent set, would be better if they have better distribution and more small prizes design! I mean Kamen Rider W is not that limited right!

Odds

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

Chance to get a top prize (A, B or D): 4 / 80 = 5%, lower than average 😦

Chance to get a figure prize (A, B or C): 15 / 80 = 18.75%, higher than average!

Recommendation

3 tickets for a chance at a figure or some W goodies!

Collectibles? : Well if you don’t already have a W worldlise, you can consider Prize A or Last! Prize B is a good item to keep if you have a Worldise collection! The mini figures as well, you can use the chance to catch up your collection and/or collect the humans! As for the small prizes, maybe just get the 3 pairs of Gaia memories charm.
