We are back with another Spy Family Kuji, so from the name you can see that it is version 1.5 because there will be a lot of reissue prizes from previous set, but not everything is reissue, we have some new prizes as well! Let’s check out what they have for us in this special set!

For past Kuji prizes, do visit Ichiban Kuji Spy Family Full Prize Index List

Prize A (2 pieces)

Top Prize Appearance: Reissue

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

We kick things off with an Anya figure, this is not a new figure, it has past release in the Mission Start set, it is the same exact copy so for those who didn’t get a chance to pull this back then, this is your chance to obtain this amazing figure! Figure is 15cm tall, exact copy of what was previously released, the number cubes are removable so nothing bad at all! Definitely the prize to look out for!

Prize B (2 pieces)

Top Prize Appearance: Reissue

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Next we have Plush which is also a reissue from previous set, this Anya Big Plush was release back in the Lovely Ordinary Days set, this is 30cm tall, so giant and huge and definitely huggable, can even feel like you are owning an Anya character at home! Won’t have the same appeal as the figure, but definitely something you won’t regret pulling!

Prize C (2 pieces)

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

So next we have Bath Towels, not exactly the prize everyone is looking for, but for design wise, this definitely looks great! We have a shot of all the main characters, what’s more is that this prize is a new prize! So it has never appear in previous set before! The towel is 120cm long and it’s meant for you to use as a bath towel, but the design is so nice that you probably can’t bear to use it, you can use it as a display piece to last longer! Won’t complain if I pulled this.

Prize D (2 pieces)

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Next we have another Bath Towel and this is also a new prize. The design features Anya, Damien and Becky so all the cuter characters here. Similarly this feels like a design towel but Bandai called this a Bath towel so if you feel like using it, go ahead, I will most likely keep it for display if I do pull it! 120cm as well, won’t be unhappy if I pull this!

Prize E (3 pieces)

Top Prize Appearance: Reissue

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Wow the big prizes are still ongoing! Next we have Large Illustration Board from the Mission Start Set. So if you didn’t get this design the previous time, you have another shot to pull this! The design is good, it features the main 3 characters, a big A3 size board as well, so all is well, I didn’t rate it any higher because it’s a reissue prize but they did give it to us anyway, we could get more small prizes, but we are getting 3 of these in a set, so no complaints.

Prize F (3 pieces)

Top Prize Appearance: Reissue

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Another Illustration Board also from the Mission Start Set, this design features the Main 3 characters in their waiter and chef outfit. A3 as well and I like that we are getting a lot of big prizes in the set!

Prize G (25 pieces)

Design: 10

Distribution: 5 x 3 pieces each. 5 x 2 pieces each.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

We move into the small prize section and all of these are new to the series! They had Acrylic stands in the past but none of these are repeated! We have Anya, Loid, Yor and Bond and a mixture of them in the designs, if you are an old collector this is something you probably want to keep a lookout for! The group design is probably the more popular ones, so do play early to choose. They also flood the set with these which I felt was a good problem to have! I mean would you rather they gave us reissued towels?

Prize H (25 pieces)

Design: 11

Distribution: 3 x 3 pieces each. 8 x 2 pieces each.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 2 out of 5.

Speaking of reissue, this is a little annoying, we have the 10 designs of Rubber Charm from Mission Start set with the addition of Bond. I mean if you collected all 10 designs before, you shouldn’t play this set unless you want more of any of these. Like they could come up with more designs but instead we got back the same 10, can’t say that I am not disappointed, I mean if returning collectors want to play, they will have the issue of getting duplicated designs of collection that they already have.

Prize I (16 Pieces)

Design: 4

Distribution: 4 x 4 pieces each.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Next we have a new prize, thankfully. This Mini Plates feature Anya as well as Anya with the other 3 main characters. Plate is around 10cm in diameter, all is good, at least no repeating small prizes. Selectable as well, so no issue for you to get all 4 designs!

Last Prize / Double Chance

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Well if you want Prize A Anya and you couldn’t pull her or if you have previous versions of this figure and the Last variant and you want something new, here it is! This version is a new variant that has never been released before! The orange dress Anya is exclusive to the Last Prize in this set! So if you want her a buyout is the way to go. You can look for a 8- buyout or 13- with other big prizes inside.

Fortunately this is also the double chance prize! So do check your results before buying!


Big Prize

Rating: 4 out of 5.

We have figures, jumbo towels, big plush and big illustration board, definitely a good range of combination.

Small Prize

Rating: 3 out of 5.

The plates and acrylic stands are the deal for the small prizes in this set, unfortunately we have a reissue rubber charm to lower the score for this section.

Last Prize

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

A new variant of Anya figure is never a bad thing!

Variety of Prize

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

With 9 different prizes and a lot of selections of small prizes, the variety is above average for this set!

Odds of big prizes

Rating: 4 out of 5.

14 top prizes for 80 tickets, excellent!

Value for Money

Rating: 3 out of 5.

You have a good chance to get acrylic stand or mini plates for this set, which will be value for money, you also have a good chance for the top prizes, the rubber charm is the drawback here, if not the value will be super good.

Collector’s Value

Rating: 3 out of 5.

See below

Overall: B


A good set, despite most of the things being returning items. I think for a reissue set they have done pretty well by including things that are attractive, still don’t get why they can’t give more rubber charm or at least mix up some designs from different sets. Regardless, if you are new, I think you will like this set a little more.


Let’s calculate your odds to get the following with one ticket from a fresh board!

Chance to get a figure prize (A ): 2 / 80 = 2.5%, really low

Chance to get a top prize (A to F): 14 / 80 = 17.5%, amazingly high!


Returning collector: 2 tickets for a chance at the new stuff or the top prizes, perhaps you can trade them if you already had them.

New collector: 4 tickets for some nice goodies.


The Real Deal:

  • Last Prize Anya Figure: Different variant of previous release figure, nothing bad about it! However that being said, if you don’t need 2 variants of the same figure, feel free to skip this.

Nice to have:

  • Prize C, D Jumbo Towel, they are nice and good to display, not easy to pull too so if you have a chance to get it or buy at a decent price, why not.
  • Prize G Acrylic stand: Since they are all different and not blinded, getting all of them will be good for your collection!
  • Prize I Mini Plates: Same reason too, they are not hard to pull and they are nice if you display all the designs!
  • Prize H Bond Rubber Charm: Because this is the only design that is new, so just get this for your collection.

Collect only if you don’t already have:

  • Prize A Anya Figure: this is a nice figure to have, or if you already have previous Anya figure and you don’t need it, no problem, just skip this!
  • Prize B Anya Plush: It’s just a big nice plush to have, so why not, but if you are not into plush or have other Anya plush, skip it too.


  • Prize E and F Illustration Board, they are nice to have but they are reissued non figure non plush prize, so don’t worry about it if you can’t get them.
  • Prize H Rubber Charm, reissue so no need to collect, I mean if you wanted them, you would have hunted them in the past.
