The recent leaks are true: LEGO is releasing new Overwatch toys early next year. Here’s a breakdown:
Tracer and Widowmaker’s minifigs accompany a “mannable” drone satellite and checkpoint disc. Comes with their signature weapons too. This playset is US$14.99.
The set can be combined with the Watchpoint: Gibraltar map kit that includes Mercy, Reaper, Winston, and Pharah. That likewise gives minifigs their signature items and weapons.
It also features a 14-inch Overwatch rocket that separates into two vehicles. This set costs US$89.99.
Brothers Hanzo and Genji face off in the Hanamura dojo, which includes a Shimada Henchman minifig. The dojo features a weapons stand, health pack, and “2 hidden disc shooters that represent the dragon spirits of each brother.”
The 197-piece kit is US$19.99.
Soldier 76, McCree, and Reaper are together in the Dorado Showdown playset, which includes a payload truck (with adjustable hover-wheels), a generator payload and a Dorado-style building with a doorway for the payload truck to pass through. Dorado Showdown is US$29.99.
Reinhardt and D.Va are standalone mechs both more than five inches tall. Their minifigs can ride in the cockpit; D.Va’s mech has a shooting function. This set is US$39.99.
Once built, Bastion can be posed in recon mode (more than 10 inches tall) or sentry mode (about 6 inches tall) without rebuilding. This kit is US$49.99.
Excited? Are your toy-collecting senses tingling? Well, you may have to parallel import it; Blizzard does not ship these outside of the US for now. Hope you have pals in the US who can mail stuff to you!
