Series Sequel: 7th Gundam Kuji set! First in 2023!
Recommended for: Fans of Masterlise Aerial Gundam! Casual fans can skip this
We have another Online Exclusive Kuji and this time round it’s a special kind of Kuji, because there is only 3 tickets in total! The ticket price is also super steep, which is 10 times the cost of a standard Kuji ticket! This is because in this Kuji, it’s a sure win, we will talk more about that later, but in the mean time, let’s dive right into the prizes!
This set is Ichiban Kuji Online exclusive so to play and obtain the prizes, you will need:
- Creating an account in Ichiban Kuji Online website
- Have a Japan address to ship the prizes from Bandai to there and eventually ship from there to your own home
You may also buy from the marketplace should any of the above seems inconvenient to you.
Prize A (1 piece)
Top Prize Appearance: Debut!
So the Gundam featured in the entire set is Aerial Gundam, he is a Masterlise figure so expect good quality and bulky figure! He looks sharp here with his signature beam blade. The figure is 22cm tall and if you are collecting the Masterlise Gundam figures, you will need Aerial as well! This version is the standard form, so if you are not fond of anything fancy, this will suit you! You can also easily trade other versions for this one, I believe others will want the other 2 versions as well, so you can easily trade for this!
Prize B (1 piece) / Double Chance
Next we have the Metallic version of Masterlise Aerial Gundam! Everything is pretty much the same, except that this version has a Metallic coating all over and it should look more shiny in a way! Again it boils down to your luck to see which version you got. Some might prefer this, some might just want the normal version, regardless they all look great! 22cm as well.
This is also a double chance prize, so if you didn’t manage to pull this, you have another shot at the double chance to win this!
Prize C (1 piece)
Lastly we have a “lighted” version of Aerial Gundam, so the difference between this and Prize A is that it emits blue light from the body parts to signify that it’s operational. It does not need batteries, the blue light is just another design, so you can’t switch it off. Some may prefer this as well, as this can represent Aerial Gundam in combat mode! Masterlise and 22cm as well, again depends on your luck if you are able to pull this!
The last prize is nothing too fancy, basically there is only 3 tickets in the set so you have to have some expectations for the last prize. It is a giant cardboard background with a Suletta standee! Any of the above 3 Masterlise or just any Gundam Masterlise is able to fit into this perfectly! The last prize acts as a background for you to display, it is 30cm long and a Suletta standee comes along with it at 8cm tall, you can substitute the standee with an acrylic stand if you have it. Basically nothing much if you don’t have it, but if the last ticket comes with the Prize that you want, then by all means, go for the buyout and grab this along with it! Don’t go for anything more than 1 ticket for the buyout just for this! You will be able to buy this at a decent price in the marketplace!
3 Amazing Aerial Gundam Masterlise, all good!
The Last Prize is a display option for your Masterlise, nothing much to miss out but good enough to act as a free gift if you are buying out the set!
Variety of Prize
For a kuji set that has only 3 tickets, and all are top prizes, we can’t expect much variety, I mean would you rather they throw in 1 small prize inside to replace a figure?
Odds of big prizes
3 tickets all are big prizes, you are guaranteed to get a figure!
Value for Money
The ticket cost is also way steeper due to the layout of this Kuji, but take it as you pay 8,500 yen for the Masterlise Figure, which is a good value for an online exclusive product!
Basically this is a special Kuji for Aerial Masterlise Figure, so everything is revolved around that character, is this necessary the best format? It’s quite subjective but at least it makes things easier for collector to get, but also means no chance for a 1 ticket wonder to pull a Masterlise!
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): 3 / 3 = 100%, guaranteed a win!
1 ticket to see which version of Aerial you will get!
The Real Deal:
- Prize A to C Aerial Gundam Masterlise: Well if you are playing this set, you are intending to get this figure, so any of them will be good to your collection! Don’t need to get multiple versions unless you are a big fan, like super big fan of Aerial Gundam!
Nice to have:
- Last Prize Backgroud Board + Standee: This is a nice to have item for displaying your Masterlise Gundam, so see if you have a chance to go for a buyout, if not it’s okay nothing much that you are missing out!
Collect only if you don’t already have: NA
