A couple weeks ago we got our first look at a new Minicon-related gimmick in the RID 2015 called the Minicon Battle Pack. Today we have our first sighting of Wave 1 at US retail! This wave consists of two two-packs which in themselves are Optimus Prime vs. Minicon Decepticon Bludgeon and Sideswipe vs. Minicon Decepticon Anvil, and has been spotted at a Toys R Us in Michigan. Along with being two-packs, the Minicon Battle Packs also contain some translucent orange armor pieces that can either attach to Optimus and Sideswipe, or combine into a giant weapon for the Autobots!
Keep your eyes open for these at your local retail and happy hunting, TFW!
