Prize A (2 pieces) / Double Chance

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Wow the top prize is a PS5….. Coin Case. Okay let’s be realistic, you can’t possibly win a $1000 item with a 700Yen ticket, or could you? Knowing Bandai, that’s not a possibility, but this prize really looks just like the PS5 and if you want to display one in your house but don’t want to buy the actual one, this would do! It’s also coin case, so you can put your savings in it so eventually you can save enough money to buy the real one! Stands at 19.5cm tall, not a small prize!

This is also the double chance prize for the set, no complains here!

Prize B (3 pieces)

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Well if you feel nostalgic, how about a PlayStation Display Case! This shapes just like the actual PlayStation back in the 90s and it has the function that pops up the disk cover when you press a button. Not only can you keep this as a display piece since it’s electronic free, but you can also use it to store your smaller items! It’s 19.5cm wide, so not a small prize as well!

Prize C (4 pieces)

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Next we have Tote bag and it’s a useful item to bring out and if you really like PlayStation this would be a good item to showcase to people about it! The design looks cool too, it has the exact label of the controller and the console. Not a bad prize, I would expect maybe something unique but at least it’s a decent top prize.

Prize D (20 pieces)

Design: 4 plates. 2 cups.

Distribution: 2 cups x 2 pieces each. 4 plates x 4 pieces each.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

In the small prize list we have a mixture of Cups and Mini Plates. You can pick any of them when you pull this prize. The cups are 8cm tall and the design is quite simple but they are usually the ones getting picked first so if you like the design do play early! The mini plates is 9cm in diameter and I believe they are what attracts the crowd! You can either get your favorite button or get all 4 because why not! Interesting design overall.

Prize E (21 pieces)

Design: 2 long 2 small

Distribution: 1 x 6 pieces. 3 x 5 pieces each.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Next we have towels, and as much as I don’t fancy towels, I think the design is rather unique for this set. The long towels feature a design of past consoles and also the buttons, the small towel has the console and controller art and the buttons in a different theme. Not bad overall, if you want the long towels do play early as they should be picked first.

Prize F (20 pieces)

Design: 4 charms. 2 Bands.

Distribution: 2 Bands x 2 pieces each. 4 charms x 4 pieces each.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Lastly we have an interesting combination of charms and bands! The design for the charms are basically past consoles such as PS, PS2, PSP and PS3, which looks really nice and if you like any of them you can just hang them around your bags or wallet! The bands are a more useful item but can also act as a fancy art as it features the buttons design as well as the controllers design. They look nice and I believe you wouldn’t feel bad for pulling any of them!

Last Prize

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

The Last Prize is a unique prize here. It is a controller cushion! so if you really enjoy playing PlayStation and wants to hug it, now you can! It’s 50cm long so definitely huggable and it’s even a good item to take pictures with! You can look for a 6- buyout or 11- with at least one Top Prize Left and hopefully 1 of each plates.

Conclusion

This set is definitely interesting, it doesn’t have any collection element as I don’t think they will come up with any more PlayStation related set. The Prizes are decent, I mean if you really like PlayStation or find anything here appealing, you can just try a few tickets!

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): 9 / 70 = 12.85%, slightly higher than average

Recommendation

3 tickets for a chance at the top prizes and get some Nostalgic goodies from it!

Collectibles?

The Real Deal: Well I think nothing here is the real deal as it lacks collection element.

Nice to have: The Coin Case, Display Case and Tote Bags are all nice prizes to have if you pull it, but if you couldn’t no need to worry, you won’t be missing out on anything. The Cushion is also a nice item to have but only if the buyout is worth. The plates are also good if you manage to get all 4 designs, but that might also mean you will have to get a lot of towels or charms on your way to collect it. The charms and bands are also nice things to have but don’t need to get all the designs, just the ones you like.

Collect only if you don’t already have: Since this is the only PlayStation set, everything is new here.

Skippable: The towels and cups are nice but no collection value overall.
