It is no secret that well-known game developer and publisher Blizzard Entertainment and the iconic toy brand Lego are collaborating to create a product for the hero shooter Overwatch but those exact details have yet to be unveiled. That is until sets leaked this morning.
From the Target Registry App, six seemingly official images of Lego Overwatch sets along with prices for each set were uploaded, however, they have been removed at the time of this writing. According to The Brick Fan, the six sets will range from $14.99 to $89.99 — available in both mini figure scale and brick-built — and include much of the game’s original cast of characters. Some fan-favorite original characters like Mei, Lucio, and Zenyatta did not make the cut.
Back in August, both Lego and Overwatch Twitter accounts teased the collaboration with a short video of a modified hero select screen featuring six mysterious mini figures. While some were pretty easy to nail down, a couple were fairly difficult to identify. Looking at this leak, it is clear that those two mystery figures were indeed Reinhardt and Widowmaker.
In October, the Overwatch Twitter account gave us the first glimpse of the Tracer mini figure. It was only a few more days that the first set of this collaboration would officially be available to purchase with the Omnic Bastion kit, which is available on the Blizzard Gear Store for $25.
When these sets will be on store shelves is still unknown. What I do know is my boy Reinhardt is looking real good in Lego form and will find a nice spot on my desk whenever they are available. You can check out some pictures of the sets below to get a better look.
This is not the first time Blizzard Entertainment collaborated with a toy company. The developer is also teaming up with Hasbro to bring some of the game’s iconic weaponry to life such as Reaper’s Hellfire shotguns and D. Va’s Blaster in Nerf form.
