A week ago, the LEGO Catalog for the 2nd half of this year has confirmed the arrival of two, new LEGO Overwatch 2019 sets sometime in October. There were speculations on what they will be, with signs pointing at the duo of Junkrat and Roadhog, plus the cute but deadly Hammond, aka Wrecking Ball. This time around, Amazon UK has put an end on all the speculations and has finally revealed what we can expect from these new sets. Read on and take a look.
The first to be revealed is the LEGO Overwatch Wrecking Ball (75976) coming in at 227 pieces, expected to retail for around $20 USD. Though I am not strictly an Overwatch fan, I have to say that I’m impressed on how LEGO designers managed to faithfully capture the looks of this powerhouse mech in LEGO bricks. Based on these visuals, this build also comes in with two alternate modes – a spherical ball and a walking, offensive mech – as seen in the video game. Plus the Hammond hamster minifigure is really cute.

The next set to be revealed by Amazon UK is the LEGO Overwatch Junkrat and Roadhog (75977). The set features the demolition duo together with their signature Junkertown Bike. I like how this brick rendition turned out, considering that the bike also comes with a display base and a bit of Junkertown scenery. As an added bonus, it also comes with a unique Pachimari printed element. Roadhog also comes in as a new bigfig mold so this is something interesting to see.

I would like to see the official product description on these new LEGO Overwatch 2019 sets to know more about their details and other play features. And since they have an October (or perhaps earlier in August) release date, then we can expect more info to come in during the next few weeks. There’s also no indication as of this posting that these sets are retailer exclusives so we can also expect to see them listed at LEGO Shop@Home soon. Special thanks to Brickset for the heads-up!
