The global market store known as Rakuten has put up a number of listings for the first quarter toys from Kamen Rider Ghost!


With an announcement press conference for Kamen Rider Ghost right around the corner, it is no surprise that retailers are starting to prepare for the first quarter of merchandise for the next entry in the Kamen Rider franchise. Online retailer Rakuten let the proverbial beans spill a little early, revealing what could be the entire first quarter of toys to be released in October, November, and December of 2015.

The toy listings reveal a lot about the themes of Kamen Rider Ghost, as well as what to expect out of the playability of the toy lines. Ghost Icons will indeed be the gimmick used in the series, said to resemble eyes. Each Ghost Icon will contain the soul of a famous historical figure from all over the world. Each soul will allow Kamen Rider Ghost to transform into a new form, called Souls (魂/Tamashii). The toy line-up also reveals a second Rider who may be introduced right at the beginning of the show named Kamen Rider Specter. It is unknown if this Specter will be a friend or foe.

Note that all prices and releases dates listed are subject to change and can vary by retailer.

The Rider Hero Series of vinyl figures is a staple for Bandai’s toy lines. Small and affordable, they’re great for kids and collectors alike.
