Overwatch fans, it’s time to build.
Lego Overwatch sets were officially revealed Friday during BlizzCon — Blizzard’s annual convention — bringing depictions of characters and vehicles from the game like Tracer, Widowmaker, Hanzo and more into Lego sets. The Overwatch sets were teased last month and even inadvertently leaked by Target and in reports by Kotaku, but now they’re official with full details.
These sets will become available on Jan. 1, 2019 and are designed by Woon Tze Chee.
D.Va vs. Reinhardt
Made up of 455 pieces and releasing for $40 in the US (roughly £30 and AU$55), D.Va’s tank can shoot and opens up so you can place the matching minifigure inside. For Reinhardt, there’s a buildable Rocket Hammer.
Made up of 730 pieces, the Watchpoint: Gibralter set includes Mercy, Pharah and Reaper minifigures along with a big figure for Winston. The Overwatch rocket in this set can split into two pieces with a cockpit in each one. Character weapons include Pharah’s Rocket Launcher, Mercy’s Caduceus Staff and Caduceus Blaster, Reaper’s twin Hellfire Shotguns and Winston’s Tesla Cannon. This set will cost $90 in the US (roughly £70, AU$125).
Bastion, made up of 602 pieces, comes in two modes without any rebuilding needed: recon and sentry. The set stands over 10 inches tall (26 centimeters) when in recon mode and in sentry mode stands 6 inches tall (17cm). Weapons include Bastion’s gun and minigun. This set will cost $50 (roughly £40 and AU$70).
