For the Super Sentai and Kamen Rider Candy Toys, candies don't have to be included. They are mostly miniature versions of the mecha, heroes and other things from the series. I think this is a handy way so fans who can not afford the big robos can have them. The best part is that with the Sentai robos, you can combine them. And unlike other Japanese small toys, you know what you are getting from the cover front.
