Prize A (2 pieces) / Double Chance

Top Prize Appearance: 14th

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Without any surprise, we get Rimuru for the A Prize to kick things off! He looks great here, no special form or anything, just a simple good looking figure with a slime base! Figure stands at 16.5cm tall, nothing bad, all good quality figure accepted!

Without any surprise too, this is also your double chance prizes, so you have another chance at this!

Prize B (2 pieces)

Top Prize Appearance: Debut!

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

A debuting character is always welcome! We have Benimaru making his first appearance as a top prize! He looks great, no flashy pose, just a simple ready to battle pose and comes with a half octagon base. Figure seems to be similar theme with Prize A, so I bet it will look good together! 17cm tall and for new and existing collector, this is the piece to go for!

Prize C (1 piece)

Top Prize Appearance: Debut!

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Wow another debuting character here! Hiiro is introduce as another character in the set, he has a good looking pose and holding his weapon too. He stands on a half octagon base, which is meant for Benimaru’s half, so both will fit nicely together! Figure is also 17cm tall. Sad that he is a unique piece in the set, so everyone do lookout for this piece if you want to add him to your collection!

Prize D (8 pieces)

Design: 4

Distribution: 4 x 2 pieces each. Blind box.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

We move straight into the small prizes and what a good way to kick things off with 4 amazing looking figures! All characters are new here, Rimuru and Diablo have appeared before but they have different expression for this set. Hiiro and Towa mini figure debut here! The mini figures are not easy to pull and it’s a collector items, so if you do pull it, good for you!

Prize E (10 pieces)

Design: 9

Distribution: 1 x 2 pieces. 8 x 1 piece each.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Next we have Acrylic stand and they look fantastic. Each design features a different character and the mystery character being Ultima. So 9 different characters to pick and it’s also not an easy feat to pull this prize given that there are only 10 pieces to go around! So collecting this is hard, so maybe just pick the characters you like if you don’t think the effort is worth! A good prize, it’s not a small acrylic stand, they range from 13cm to 17cm tall! So almost as tall as the figures!

Prize F (24 pieces)

Design: 6

Distribution: 6 x 4 pieces each.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Next we have A4 Folders, they feature characters from the acrylic stand and Rimuru slime, so nothing bad about the design, 2 character folders for each prize. The only drawback is the lack of variety, for 24 pieces prize they could have given us more designs since we are going to play more for this set and will end up with a lot of duplicated designs.

Prize G (33 pieces)

Design: 15

Distribution: 3 x 3 pieces each. 12 x 2 pieces each. Blind box.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Lastly we have rubber charms, this is the first time that the charms for Slime Kuji are blinded, which can make collection a bit hard but at the same time you can get some additional thrill factor! It also make certain designs more valuable since they are not easy to get, so good and bad. Anyway I think all of them look nice and wow all 15 designs are different characters, which is rare for a Slime set!

Last Prize

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

The Last Prize look exactly like the A Prize Rimuru. This just have the shiny effect and looks a bit cooler. If you want this you can lookout for a 7- buyout or 15- with at least one other figures inside and hopefully some mini figures/acrylic stand!

Overall: B

Conclusion

An average set and if there were more variety of small prizes and also more mini figures and acrylic stand, the grades would have been higher. There are also a lack of cool big prizes like Slime related prizes or CD or booklet so it does lack a bit of the nostalgia that they once had. Regardless, we have 2 new characters for the top prizes and a series of collectibles for this set, so it’s a good set overall to try and get those items!

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 C): 5 / 80 = 6.25%, way lower than average

Chance to get a figure prize (A to D): 13 / 80 = 16.25%, higher than average

Recommendation

3 tickets for a chance at the figures or at least an acrylic stand! Do play early to choose your acrylic stand designs!

Collectibles?

The Real Deal: Well Benimaru and Hiiro are the figures to get for this set. If you are collecting all the characters for Slime, you would want to get your hands on this! Hiiro and Towa mini figures are also a must for the mini figures collection, the chances of them appearing in future set is slim, so better to get them now!

Nice to have: The acrylic stand is definitely a nice to have items, but they are not easy to collect. They are selectable, but they are not easy to pull, so you might need some luck or just buy the remaining from second hand market! The charms are a good items to collect as well! This set features all 15 different characters and they all have a slime in their design, so very nice and you can get all 15 and your charm collection will look neat and complete! They are hard to collect because of the blind box arrangement but second hand market should not be too expensive for any particular design.

Collect only if you don’t already have: Rimuru (A and Last) as well as mini figures Rimuru and Diablo have came out before, so no obligation to get them from this set, but is a good time to get if you don’t have previous versions!

Skippable: Sadly the folders are skippable, the folders will be excessive in a lot of collector’s collection simply because there are not many designs to go around.
