Gamescom 2018 in Germany and the Overwatch Fan Festival in Korea are all set for tomorrow, and to celebrate these events and the official launch of the LEGO Overwatch tie-in sets, the Overwatch Facebook page just gave us a teaser on how things will be with the new LEGO theme. The teaser shows several silhouettes of LEGO Overwatch minifigures, particularly that of the six playable characters of the video game. From left to right, it seems to me that we’ll have: Widowmaker, Reinhardt, Genji, Soldier 76, Mercy, and McCree.
Interestingly, other than the LEGO Overwatch minifigures, the above teaser also shows three backgrounds which may suggest that the LEGO Overwatch sets will feature any of these places as hinted in their mini movies. As of now, rumor has it that LEGO has four sets dedicated to the Overwatch theme, with set numbers 75970, 75971, 75972 and 75973 assigned to them.
Furthermore, it is also expected that a LEGO Overwatch collectible minifigure series is in order which is pretty appealing considering the vast range of characters that the Overwatch universe has to offer. Exciting as it may sound, we have to consider all of these as speculations until we get to see the official LEGO Overwatch set reveal by tomorrow. Stay tuned here in our new website for more updates.
