Series Sequel: 26th Evangelion Kuji set, 1st in 2023!
We are back with another Eva set and the previous set is amazing with new characters and lots of interesting prizes! This set looks amazing too, let’s see what they have for us!
For past Kuji prizes, do visit Ichiban Kuji Evangelion Prize Index List
Prize A (2 pieces) / Double Chance
Top Prize Appearance: 11th for Eva Unit 1, 2nd for Fourth Angel
You know what is better than having 1 Eva Unit as your top prize? 2 Eva Units! Okay maybe not Eva Units, both 2 colossal robot dishing it out and you get a perfect sculpt out of them! Eva Unit 01 is dealing the final blow to Fourth Angel and instead of your usual Mega Impact figure, this is a Mega Vignette figure! They are basically a subline of Mega Impact but focuses on dup figure and very good looking poses like these! The figures are 27cm tall and you definitely want to get your hands on this even if you have previous figures of both characters! 2 to go around and you have a chance at double chance too!
Prize B (2 pieces)
Top Prize Appearance: 22nd
Not surprising but the next figure we won’t have anymore Eva Units, just the pilot humans. We have Asuka to kick things off and although she appear so many times, this is the first time she dons a student uniform, so if you like this outfit you can collect this figure. It is 20cm tall, definitely not small, 2 to go around and a good consolation prize too if you can’t pull the Eva Unit.
Prize C (1 piece)
Top Prize Appearance: 18th
Rei makes another appearance as well and she also is in her student uniform outfit. At this stage you either like them or you don’t, so if you do like them, then it’s a bonus for you, if you don’t and you pulled them, you still can sell or trade with some value! It’s a rare figure after all! Figure is also 20cm tall.
Prize D (1 piece)
Top Prize Appearance: 10th
Mari don’t appear as often as the other 2 ladies, but she looks great as well and I think if you want to, you can collect all 3 of them since their outfit has the same theme. If you are a fan of Mari this is a good figure to get too as I don’t think they will have student uniform release that often. Figure is slightly taller at 21cm.
Prize E (2 pieces)
Top Prize Appearance: 3rd for all
To make up for only 6 figures in a set, we have a trio acrylic stand featuring Rei, Asuka and Mari and if you like acrylic stands, this is your prize. It’s not bad, it’s 14cm tall, so big enough to display and call yourself a fan, but I think generally people play Eva Kuji for the Eva units, so we do appreciate more figures over anything else.
Prize F (18 pieces)
Distribution: 4 x 3 pieces each. 3 x 2 pieces each. Blind box.
The cups are amazing, they are tall, at 12 cm and they feature all the Eva Units from 01 to 06 and 08 and also Wunder, so if you do like the Eva Units you sure won’t hate this! It’s a better prize amongst the smaller prizes too, too bad it’s blinded so hope you pull the design that you want!
Prize G (21 pieces)
Distribution: 1 x 3 pieces each. 9 x 2 pieces each.
I am usually not a fan of towels but this time round they are all long towels and they are all designs of Eva Units! This is definitely one of the better towels in a while and you have very good looking Eva Units design and if you put them all together, it looks glorious! Not bad if you pull it, at least you can pick your favorites!
Prize H (33 pieces)
Distribution: 3 x 2 pieces each. 9 x 3 pieces each.
Lastly in the small prize section we have folder set, as usual 1 prize you are getting 2 folders, the design we have the main characters’ scene in the anime and also the main characters with their Eva Units. I believe the pilot/Unit would be the more popular ones so play early if you want to pick!
The Last Prize is exactly the same as the A prize, so you don’t need to pull A and go for buyouts. If you don’t like to play with risk or you want a more secure way, you can look for a 12- buyout or 15- with at least 1 figure to get this amazing figure!
Very good figures but with the inclusion of pilots and even a large acrylic stand, the big prizes does take an impact.
Standard small prizes with the usual folder set and towels, lucky this set we have cups as well.
A Mega Vignette figure for the buyout, who doesn’t love that!
Variety of Prize
With 27 different small prizes the variety is definitely there for the set.
Odds of big prizes
Standard 8 big prizes for 80 tickets.
Value for Money
You will end up with towels or folder, and it’s so hard to pull even a pilot, so you won’t see your money worth but who knows luck is on your side!
A solid set, the Mega Vignette definitely saves it, I do hope they release the normal Eva Units too even if they come out with a Mega Vignette figures! I think you can try some tickets.
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
Chance to get a figure prize (A to D): 6 / 80 = 7.5%, below average
3 tickets for a chance at the figures or buyout for the Mega Vignette!
The Real Deal: The Mega Vignette for sure, if Bandai wanted to, they can release more Mega Vignette in the future! So this will be a good item to keep, even if they don’t release more of it, it’s a good figure to keep!
Nice to have: The cups are nice so are the towels, but keep it if you have collections of Eva Units related prizes, other than that just pick what you like!
Collect only if you don’t already have: The trio pilots are adorable, so do get them if you like the uniform outfit or if you don’t have any pilots and want to start now!
Skippable: The folder set unfortunately will have a lot of people not keeping or they don’t need the full set, so you don’t have to get all designs too, if you are hardcore about it, then just the 5 pilot/unit design.
