Ichiban Kuji: Selectable prizes for non-blinds small prizes. Double chance included if your country carries this Kuji.
Series Sequel: 9th QQ Kuji, second in 2023 !
We proceed on to another QQ set, this time round you can see that the theme is them in their wedding dress, although it doesn’t sound like game final, but regardless, we can expect prizes to be in a set of 5s, so let’s check out what this set has for us!
Prize A/B/C/D/E (2 pieces each)
Top Prize Appearance: 7th for all
Distribution: 5 x 2 pieces each. You get what you pull, each character will be indicated in the tickets.
Well I think we all expect this, 5 figures of the Quintuplet, each having their respective prizes. This time round, all of them wore the same Wedding Dress, no different color or any additional fancy accessories, even their color for the roses on their dress is the same, wouldn’t be surprised if they had used the same mold for everyone. Regardless, they do look nice and these are what you are playing the set for, so all is well. Figures are all 18cm tall, our standard 5 sisters; Ichika, Nino, Miku, Yotsuba and Isuki. Once again, you can either focus on your favorite sister or go for the set! 2 to around, like whew, you know the nightmare from the previous set still haunts me, so glad that they are going back to 10 figures per set kind of standard.
Prize F (10 pieces)
Distribution: 5 x 2 pieces each. Blind Packs.
Unlike most other sets, we jump straight into the small prizes. It’s not that bad actually I rather they give us 10 figures and jump into the small prizes than having 5 figures and a bunch of non essential consolation prizes… These Illustration Board are nice, the design is the same as their figure design, what I am surprised about is that there are only 10 pieces of these and they are blinded! B5 in size, not that big, so not sure why is there a need to blind this, anyway it’s a decent prize and it’s as hard to pull them as the top prize, so don’t feel too bad about it!
Prize G (30 pieces)
Distribution: 5 x 6 pieces each.
Next we have folder set, each design comes with 2 pieces of folder; 1 which has same design as the illustration board and the other one is a single color tone variant. Creativity for the color is there, but design wise, it’s lazy of them to just use the same design, what I think is a bit too much is the mismatch of the supply and the variety of this prize. Like 30 pieces seems a bit overkilled and even if they did give us 30 pieces, why are the design so limited! I am sure it’s not hard to come up with more designs.
Prize H (30 pieces)
Distribution: 5 x 6 pieces each.
Wow we are at the end of the small prize list and it’s so weird that the set ended off with so little variety of prizes. The charms here are cute, I think the issue here is the same as above, too many of such prizes in the set and too little variety of design, so if you play a lot you are bound to have lots of duplicates. I mean they could throw in some random outfit for the sister in the least to manage the mismatch.
Last Prize / Double Chance
The Last Prize as expected is the large illustration board featuring all the Quintuplets. They look nice together, but this can easily be a small prize design, why do they have to give us some a thing for the last prize, like every set faces this promo. Why can’t we have a figure variant on at least one of the sister? Anyway if you want this, you can look for a 3- buyout or 10- with at least one figure inside, hopefully Miku!
This is a double chance prize, I doubt you will bother about it, but it’s a prize nevertheless so no harm participating.
5 amazing figures, no complaints
I think the small prizes in quality are not bad, but they felt very repeated and doesn’t feel like much effort is put into it.
An Illustration Board doesn’t seem to be a good prize to attract buyout
Variety of Prize
With only 4 different prizes and each one has super limited design, this set really needs improvement in that aspect.
Odds of big prizes
10 figures in 80 tickets, good for buyer!
Value for Money
The prizes that you get won’t have much value, because everyone is having it, so don’t play just to get them.
A below average set, they did give us back 10 figures set but I think a lot of things also cannot reduce in quality, we used to see great designs for QQ small prizes, but this set felt like the designers were lazy. A lot of things were just throw into the set to cover for the 10 top prizes standard, which I think can be improved. I mean if you play lots of tickets you are going to get a lot of same design and it’s hard to trade them away because most people would already have it.
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): 10 / 80 =12.5%, slightly higher than average
2 tickets for a chance at a figure.
The Real Deal:
- Prize A to E Quintuplets figure, because they real deal is always the 5 Quintuplets figure in every set.
Nice to have:
- Last Prize Illustration Board: Because the design is nice, so see if you can buyout really low or anyone that is willing to see you below 1 ticket cost.
Collect only if you don’t already have: None
Skippable: Prize F small Illustration Board, Prize G Folder set, Prize H Charms, because they are hard to collect or too many around and maybe keep one set of G and H for yourself, but again, there will be too many floating in the market, so you can get them later when they are dirt cheap.
