The Banpresto ichiban kuji is finally coming to the US

I never really thought it would happen but we will finally have the ichiban kuji in the US later this year:

There isn't official confirmation yet for a Dragon Ball kuji, but if you look at the promo pictures it shows Dragon Ball prizes, so it'll probably happen. :D For those who aren't familiar with ichiban kuji (number one lottery), Banpresto releases the majority of their Dragon Ball figures as lottery prizes in Japan before later releasing them to store shelves globally, and there is always a figure that's exclusive to the lottery which are usually very expensive to import, so now we'll finally have a chance to get those figures without paying crazy prices.
