For past Kuji Prizes, do visit Ichiban Kuji JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Full Prize List

Prize A (2 pieces)

Top Prize Appearance: 3rd

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

We kick things off with Jolyn Kujo! She looks great here and if you didn’t manage to get her figure from the past set, this is a good time to get this! She stands at 24cm and what is great is that she comes with a Green Baby Figure! Baby Figure is 5cm, and both are Masterlise! So 2 figures for the prize of one is definitely a catch! 2 pieces to go around too!

Prize B (1 piece)

Top Prize Appearance: Debut!

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

When you have the good guys of course we need the bad guys! Enrico Pucci makes his debut here! He is also a Masterlise figure and he stands at 26cm tall. Definitely a good item to pull, since it’s an important character to collect and it’s a unique piece!

Prize C (2 pieces)

Top Prize Appearance: Debut!

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

We have another debuting character here in Weather Report! He looks great here and he is also a Masterlise figure that stands at 26cm tall. If you are collecting the new character in this set you definitely want to get your hands on him!

Prize D (2 pieces)

Top Prize Appearance: Debut!

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

This set is basically introducing all the new characters in the latest Jojo adventure! We have Narciso Anasui here. He also stands at 25cm tall and also a Masterlise figure. Once again, if you are attracted by this set, it is most likely the new characters, 2 to go around for this piece, so do collect this as well!

Prize E (1 piece)

Top Prize Appearance: Debut!

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

The last figure for the top prizes we have Emporio Alniño. The smallest figure at 11cm tall but also a Masterlise figure. He is definitely a must to get if you are collecting, so do lookout for him. He is also another unique piece in the set! So far all the new characters are good and we only 1 returning character, seems like a good time for Jojo fans to collect more characters!

Prize F (18 pieces)

Design: 6

Distribution: 6 x 3 pieces each.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Moving on to the small prizes we have pouch! The designs are nice, we have 5 designs featuring the characters and their stand as well as one design with Green Baby! All design have their distinct color too. They are 18cm long, so definitely not a small pouch, so very usable! It’s a zipper pouch and has good fibre material so definitely worth your ticket price!

Prize G (24 pieces)

Design: 8

Distribution: 8 x 3 pieces each. Blind Box.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Next we have small plates. Okay they are not really that small, they are 10.5cm in diameter so relatively big for a saucer, just smaller if you compared to a dessert plate! The designs are nice too, we have 8 characters featured in the pouch design. The design looks nice and I hope they continue this theme with more characters in the future!

Prize G (30 pieces)

Design: 10

Distribution: 10 x 3 pieces each.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Once again I am not a fan of towel but these ones are really nice. We have the characters featured on the pouch prize and each of them has a distinct color as the design. The art is really neat too, will be good if the design has included their name but oh well, at least it’s a long towel at 60cm, so should be decent enough to justify your ticket cost.

Last Prize / Double Chance

Top Prize Appearance: Jotaro 6th.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Last prize we have 2 figures! 2 Masterlise figures to be exact ! We have Jolyn and Jotaru Kujo! Jolyn basically have the same pose as the one in the A Prize but the color of her overall is different, also you don’t have the Green Baby figure, instead you get Jotaro! They both look well together and once again, I like to emphasize that 2 figures prize is always a good prize, especially if they are a figure! You can look for a 10- buyout or 16- with at least one other non A figure!

Conclusion

An average set overall. The figures are nice, I mean any Masterlise figure is always welcome here! The small prizes are not too bad as well, I hope going forward they just give us more newer characters so that means that the older ones are going to get their money worth as they won’t be out again!

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 E): 8 / 80 = 10%, average

Recommendation

3 tickets for a chance at the top prize!

Collectibles?

The Real Deal: All the new figures (B, C,D and E) are all essential to your collection! I don’t think they will be release again anytime soon, so great to get them now! As for Green Baby, you will need to get A if you want that figure!

Nice to have: –

Collect only if you don’t already have: If you need a Jotaro figure, you will need to buyout the set, other than that, no need to get the Last Prize! If you need a Jolyn figure, just focus on getting the A Prize! Anyway if you are collecting Green Baby you will have A figure as well!

Skippable: The pouch, plates and towel are not collectibles, so you can skip them. They do posses great utility or attractiveness if you appreciate them!
