Bandai’s Kamen Rider Ghost Website Launched
Bandai has recently launched their official Kamen Rider Ghost website, ahead of the Rider’s debut in Kamen Rider Drive: Surprise Future.
Like previous start-up pages in Kamen Rider history, Bandai starts off relatively slow. The page features a detailed look at Kamen Rider Ghost Ore Damashii, holding the Gangan Saber with his three additional Ghost Eyecons: Musashi, Edison, and Newton.
In previous years, Bandai released photos and information of new toys weekly until the launch of the toy line. It is likely Bandai will do the same with Kamen Rider Ghost.
The site first promotes the DX Ghost Driver, set to release in October, 2015 using an open price system where the store can set their own price based on their MSRP. The toy itself will contain the Ghost Driver itself, a set of belt straps, the Ore Ghost Eyecon, the Edison Ghost Icon, and a unique Ganbarizing Card. The Ghost Eyecons included have a sparkly foil effect on the stickers inside.
Also shown is the DX Shift Next Special Surprise Future Set, a gimmick item set releasing on August 29th, 2015 to promote the Kamen Rider Drive: Surprise Future film, in which Ghost makes his grand debut. While the set includes the Shift Next Special and Tridoron Key items used in the movie by Kamen Rider Drive, the set also includes the Newton Ghost Eyecon.
The act of including a future gimmick item with a current, movie exclusive gimmick item hasn’t been done since Kamen Rider Fourze‘s Astro Switch EX Fusion Switch Special Set which the Big Ring from Kamen Rider Wizard.
