BlizzCon 2018 Welcomes You With a Huge LEGO Overwatch D. Va and MEKA Statue

If  you’re attending BlizzCon 2018 today at the Anaheim Convention Center in California, then you might be thrilled to know that a brick-built LEGO statue of D. Va and her mech suit MEKA will be out there keeping a close watch over you and the rest of BlizzCon attendees. This huge LEGO Overwatch D. Va and MEKA statue took 731 hours to build using 145,276 LEGO elements, and weighs in at an enormous 1,256 pounds. You can see the entire process of how to build this impressive build through the following time-lapse video.

This LEGO Overwatch D. Va and MEKA statue is based on one of the official LEGO Overwatch sets that were revealed last week, particularly, the LEGO Overwatch D. Va & Reinhardt (75973). There has been no official word from LEGO as of this posting if ever we will see the official LEGO Overwatch sets at BlizzCon, but we can keep our fingers on this one.

As someone who moderately plays video games, I’m not really into Overwatch gaming. But seeing the huge positive reception that the first-person shooter game has been receiving especially in Asia, and then I guess LEGO made a good choice of being partners with Blizzard Entertainment. We hope to see the actual LEGO Overwatch sets displayed during BlizzCon 2018 other than the recently confirmed, limited edition LEGO Overwatch Omnic Bastion (75987) which was exclusively offered at the Blizzard Gear Store. Blizzard has already confirmed this set’s availability during at BlizzCon 2018 so in case you missed out on that chance of purchasing one, then here’s your opportunity to grab this exclusive.

 

Official LEGO Overwatch Sets Revealed!

They’re finally here! After a couple of promotional teasers that includes a video of Tracer’s minifigure counterpart, and an exclusive brick-built Omnic Bastion, the stage is all set for the reveal of the official LEGO Overwatch sets.

These LEGO Overwatch sets are awesome enough to get the attention not just of the Overwatch gaming community, but also of LEGO itself. It was one of the biggest licensing coups of the company lately, and from these LEGO Overwatch box art previews, they’re not going to disappoint at all. Here are the sets, their retail prices and a pretty impressive collection of box art images courtesy of Target and Brickset.

 

Tracer vs. Widowmaker (75970)

Includes Tracer and Widowmaker minifigures; 129 pieces $14.99

 

Hanzo vs. Genji (75971)

Minifigures include Hanzo, Genji and an agent; 197 pieces; $19.99

 

Dorado Showdown (75972)

Includes Soldier 76, McCree and Reaper minifigures; 419 pieces; $29.99

 

D.Va & Reinhardt (75973)

Includes two impressive mech builds with D.Va and Reinhardt minifigures; 455 pieces; $39.99

 

Bastion (75974)

Features a multi-build, transforming humanoid mech build; 602 pieces; $49.99

 

Watchpoint: Gibraltar (75975)

Includes a Winston bigfig, with Mercy, Pharah and Reaper minifigures; 730 pieces; $89.99

 

And that’s about it for this wave. Knowing how expansive the universe of Overwatch, we hope to see additional characters rendered in LEGO.   Eagle-eyed Overwatch fans can tell that not all playable characters from the game have received their minifigure counterparts except for these handful of big names. Hopefully LEGO Overwatch becomes a hit enough, and that more sets will follow. These LEGO Overwatch sets are slated to be released in January next year.

Are We Soon To Have a LEGO Overwatch Winston Bigfig?

LEGO seems to be pushing forward with more teasers for its upcoming LEGO Overwatch sets. If you recall, LEGO came up with a minisite dedicated to this latest LEGO tie-in sets earlier in August and after more than a month, the minisite has been updated with a splash image that hints on the arrival of one of the video game’s popular characters. The said minisite seems to suggest that we will be getting an official LEGO Overwatch Winston, hopefully in big fig form.

Custom LEGO Winston Big Fig by legomasterinfinityProductions. Check out his YouTube channel for more info.

The splash image is giveaway on the particular Overwatch character that it is alluding to. It features several banana elements and what seems to be a jar of peanut butter which is Winston’s favorite chill time comfort food. Coupled with one of his quotable quotes, then this hint is a sure give-away.

It’s not difficult to imagine how LEGO will throw in a LEGO Overwatch Winston big fig, given that LEGO already came up with a set that features a gorilla big fig in LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes Gorilla Grodd Goes Bananas (76026). It is quite easy for LEGO to use Gorilla Grodd as a template and to accessorize him to be similar to the more level-headed Winston.

Gorilla Grodd big fig from LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes Gorilla Grodd Goes Bananas (76026).

If this is indeed confirmed later on, then having an official LEGO Overwatch Winston big fig in any of the 6 upcoming LEGO Overwatch sets will be much welcomed by LEGO and Overwatch fans. We previously reported that there are six expected Overwatch characters that may be included as part of the LEGO Overwatch theme, and with the inclusion of an officially revealed Tracer minifigure, then having Winston in big fig form will give us a total of eight LEGO Overwatch characters to expect: Widowmaker, Reinhardt, Genji, Soldier 76, Mercy, McCree, Tracer, and Winston.

Are you excited for these LEGO Overwatch sets? Let us know in the comments below.

An Early Look at the LEGO Overwatch Tracer Minifigure

It looks like we’re getting closer to a full reveal of the anticipated LEGO Overwatch sets anytime soon. The Overwatch social media channels on Facebook and Twitter have shown our first official reveal of the LEGO Overwatch Tracer minifigure and it looks great! Check out the video clip below.

Last month, the same Overwatch Facebook page also gave us a glimpse of 6 possible characters from the video game that will have their physical minifigure counterparts. This time, it is now set on stone that a confirmed LEGO Overwatch Tracer minifigure will find its way among the 6 LEGO Overwatch sets expected to come out next year.

Tracer is a perfect fit to spearhead the reveal of these LEGO Overwatch sets, being a sort of mascot and a household name for Overwatch fans. It’s kind of difficult to imagine the LEGO Overwatch range without even having her as an exclusive minifigure.

Given all the reveals that we have so far, we can expect the characters of Widowmaker, Reinhardt, Genji, Soldier 76, Mercy, McCree, and this time Tracer to be included in the LEGO Overwatch minifigure line up. Earlier today, the LEGO Overwatch minisite was updated with a splash image that hints on the arrival of Winston (as a LEGO bigfig perhaps?) in the LEGO Overwatch world. We’ll have to see in the next few weeks if LEGO will confirm this.

Stay tuned for more exciting LEGO Overwatch updates!

LEGO Overwatch Minifigures Teased

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.
