Blizzard and Hasbro Are Going to Sell Collectible Overwatch Figures Soon
Blizzard and Hasbro have teamed up to introduce a whole new line of Overwatch action figures featuring several heroes, including Tracer and Reinhardt
Are you still looking for more Overwatch to fill up your shelf or desk? Well, Blizzard and Hasbro are teaming up to deliver Overwatch Ultimates, a new line of action figures featuring the heroes of the popular shooter. So far confirmed in the set are Ana, Pharah, Mercy, Soldier 76, Reyes (Reaper), Lucio, Reinhardt, Tracer, and Sombra.
The figures feature opposable joints, weapons, and stands for display. The quality on these figures isn’t too shabby either, featuring solid colors and a fair amount of detail. Granted, these are $20 dollar action figures and not you’re top-grade statues that would cost you $100 or more. However, these set of heroes give us a nice and affordable option if you’re trying to build up a collection of Overwatch figures. Some heroes cost roughly $50, such as Reinhardt and bundles of two figures, like Pharah/Mercy and Ana/ Soldier 76.
What’s nice though is the diversity in character skins selected, with characters like Reaper and Ana not opting in for their original skin. No word yet if there will be any changeability to these characters, so we’ll have to wait and see if there will be other character options later on. The action figures come in roughly at 6 inches, with Reinhardt being an obvious exception of course. That being said, the figures are noted to be scale size, so the figures could range in size.
You can pre-order the figures on Gamestop’s website before they release at the end of April. There hasn’t been any announcement of these being a limited run; so it could also be likely that you can wait to pick these up when they release.
In other Blizzard news, Activison Blizzard laid off roughly 800 employees last week after a “record” year in sales for the company. Cuts made in the company were primarily in non-development roles such as publishing and esports. This is ironic, being the fact that the Overwatch League started up their season this past week as well.
