Brickmania and BrickArms are collaborating on the event kit for WWB Anaheim and have been releasing teaser pictures all week. Today we have seen some of the pictures of the actual event kit prototype released to Flickr. The photos shown here are likely to be the final design of the event kit, with only some slight variation in colors and additional printed elements. You can see earlier versions of the event kit on Flickr.
Included in each kit will be a Proto BA M249 SAW Light Machine Gun and exclusive printed crate for WWB Anaheim.
