Series Sequel: 2nd Pui Pui Molcar Kuji set! 1st in 2022!

We have another Pui Pui Molcar set after so long! The first set debut last year around the same time so great to see the Molcars back again! The theme here is driving school so quite excited to see the theme here! Let’s see what prizes are there!

Prize A (9 pieces)

Design: 6

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

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

The Molcars are the star of the show so naturally we will see them as the top prizes! We have 6 characters being featured: Potato, Shiromo, Abbey, Choco, Teddy and Peter! Apart from Peter, the others are making their second appearance, the difference is they now wear a learning hat. You can pick any of these when you pull Prize A, so pick your favorite or whomever you missed out in the first set, or just get Peter since he debuts here! Plush is not small at all, it is 20cm long and definitely looks great when you place all 6 of them together!

Prize B (1 piece)

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

If you are into usable prizes, then the tote bag is more suited for you! It’s a simple bag that is 40cm long and has a small Potato plush charm on top of it! You can roll it into a charm to hang as well, multi purpose and unique piece in the set, definitely appealing!

Prize C (16 pieces)

Design: 5

Distribution: 1 x 4 pieces. 4 x 3 pieces each. Blind box.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Next we have small plates to kick off the small prizes. They look fantastic! We have 5 different design, each featuring one/two molcars and a distinct color! It’s a good material plate that is 9.5cm in diameter and I don’t think you will feel too bad for pulling it!

Prize D (21 pieces)

Design: 1 long. 5 small.

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

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3 out of 5.

As always, I am not a fan of towels, but this case, the towels do look better! We have 6 design:

  1. 3 of them being design towels, when you get great art printed on them, and they look gorgeous
  2. 2 of them are usable towels, where the materials are made to absorb water more than the design towels!
  3. 1 of them is the long towel and I believe everyone will get this first just because it’s a long towel.

Prize E (19 pieces)

Design: 2 coaster, 1 charm, 2 band

Distribution: 1 x 3 pieces. 4 x 4 pieces each.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Lastly we have very attractive rubber prizes, which consist of:

  1. 2 coasters featuring Potato and Shiromo, 8cm wide, very useful and definitely adorable.
  2. 1 charm featuring Teddy and this charm is very special as you can use it to put your key inside so inside of putting a charm with your key, you can now merge these 2 items together! Creativity at 100%!
  3. 2 bands which features all 6 characters in the set! The band acts like any rubber band but thicker and longer (14cm) and definitely cuter, so multi purpose once again!

Last Prize

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

The last prize we have Potato so if you intend to buyout to get this cute plush, don’t pick Potato for your A Prize if you pull it! The Last prize seems to have a pattern of Potato eating different vegetable, looks cute and a good variant of the A Prize. If you like this, you can look for a 5- buyout, 9- if there is at least 1 other plush inside that’s not Potato.

You can also wait to see if you have won this via double chance before proceeding to buy out!

Conclusion

An average set and I think the good thing about this set is that the small prizes are attractive and there are a lot of variation for the big prizes too! It’s also a set that has a lot of characters being repeated in the top prize but also means that if you had the previous 5 characters, you don’t need to go so hard to get everything in the set!

Odds

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

Chance to get a top prize (A or B): 10 / 66 = 15.15%, higher than average

Recommendation

3 tickets for a chance at the plush!

Collectibles?

The Real Deal: Peter is definitely a collectible piece if you are collecting all the Molcars. I believe he might be out in the future but since he is out here why not just get him first and you don’t have to worry about getting a Peter !

Nice to have: The Totebag is nice as well but don’t go all out to get it, it’s statistically impossible, just play casually or with the intend to get your Molcars and if this comes, why not.

Collect only if you don’t already have: If you missed the first set or have an incomplete set, you can try to get the 5 other Molcars that have been released in the first set to complete your collection! If you want to collect all variants of Potato, you would need Last as well.

Skippable: Despite the small prizes being really nice, they are not a collectible items, but feel free to use them or display them for your enjoyment! This just means that you don’t have to collect all the designs to have a worthy collection.
