The other day an image of the Kamen Rider Hero Series Vinyl for Kamen Rider Ex-Aid surfaced online, and some people were skeptical as to if it was an actual product. However, as of earlier this morning it was confirmed to be the item/Rider. Shortly afterwards the toy catalog was leaked onto the web showing that aside from Kamen Rider Ex-Aid, Kamen Rider Brave, and Kamen Rider Snipe there will be two more Riders early on; Racer and Ganmu.
First off starting with the Riders, the toy catalog confirms all of them will require the GamerDriver to Henshin as well as use Gashat cartridges. The first stage of the transformation is known as Level 1 and the Rider will assume a SD-like (Super Deformed) form. To become Level 2, the normal humanoid form, pull the lever to release the plate covering the LED screen. Now, to assume the third level the images feature that the belt will be in need of two Gashats, when active it will pair the Rider with a Robot that doubles as armor. The belts will be accompanied by the Kimewaza Slot Holder, which assists in final attacks and storing additional Gashats. For the teased Lv. 4 forms, the Riders will share a Gashat known as the Drago Knight Hunter Gashat. Below is list of the Rider with their specific Gashats:
- Kamen Rider Ex-Aid Lv 1 & 2 – Mighty Action X Gashat
- Kamen Rider Ex-Aid Robots Action Gamer – Gekitotsu Robots Gashat
- Kamen Rider Brave Lv 1 & 2 – Taddle Quest Gashat
- Kamen Rider Brave Beat RPG Gamer – DoReMiFa Beat Gashat
- Kamen Rider Snipe Lv 1 & 2 – BangBang Shooting Gashat
- Kamen Rider Snipe Combat Shooting Gamer – Jet Combat Gashat
- Kamen Rider Racer Bike Gamer (Motorcycle turned into Rider) – Bakusou Bike Gashat
- Kamen Rider Racer Chanbara Bike Gamer – Girigiri Chanbara Gashat
- Kamen Rider Genmu Action Gamer – Proto Mighty X Gashat
- Kamen Rider Genmu Sports Action Gamer – Shakkariki Sports Gashat
Following the Gashats, each Rider has their own specific weapon:
- Kamen Rider Ex-Aid – Gashacon Breaker (Hammer & Sword)
- Kamen Rider Brave – Gashacon Sword
- Kamen Rider Snipe – Gashacon Magnum
- Kamen Rider Racer – Gashacon Sparrow (Bow & Kunai)
- Kamen Rider Ganmu – Pad Gashacon Bugvisor
Finally the retail action figure line is called the Level Up Rider Series, or LVUR!
