If you’re a fan of the sci-fi skirmish game MERCS and you follow their Twitter feed, then you’ve probably already seen this: sneak peek photos of “group packaging hard proofs” of their new MERCS Miniatures faction boxes.
According to the tweets, these boxes (one for each faction) will include six metal figures, six dice, the appropriate faction deck and a copy of the quick start rules.
Of interest to retailers, the “boxes can sit on a shelf or hang on a hook. Each has UPC and part number,” which may make your job easier when convincing your local store to carry these great sets.
I’m really looking forward to getting my hands on the sets I don’t currently have yet. Hopefully we’ll find out an estimated street date and price soon.
