Millions of novel examples of compact G2 holonomy manifolds have been given in recent years as twisted connected sums of asymptotically cylindrical Calabi-Yau threefolds. For compactifications of type II string theories on such G2 manifolds, we give a construction of their mirrors. Similar to Batyrev's construction of Calabi-Yau mirrors, pairs of polytopes play a crucial role.
