Toy News: "Transformers Adventure" Mini-Con functionality revealed

It's been a bit quiet lately but now TF Yuki has posted some interesting new images featuring upcoming Mini-Cons for "Transformers Adventure". Unlike their "Robots in Disguise" counterparts it appears these little guys have pegs to allow them to attach to larger Transformers. To demonstrate this "Wandering Roller" is used from the Grand Galvatron set since he has a bunch of ports for Mini-Cons. Check out the Tweet in the embed below!

Takara Tomy Mall has posted several new listings for "Transformers Adventure" figures! These show off the Japanese versions of several figures released outside of Japan. Some of these figures have significantly different decos from their "Robots in Disguise" counterparts, especially the Mini-Cons who have many more paint applications on them and in some cases, totally different colored plastic. The "Battle Packs" now feature Mini-Cons that are partners for the larger robot rather than being a "versus" set.
