We earlier reported that Overwatch is getting the LEGO treatment with its own series of sets. Today Blizzard released the first set via the Blizzard Gear online store, and it is of Bastion. You can purchase it now for only $25.00 USD. While we thought we would be seeing Tracer as the first one to be released, they surprised us with this instead. The attention to detail is quite remarkable, and this looks like a great start for the LEGO Overwatch collection.
Description From Blizzard
Overwatch fans will want to build and collect this exclusive Bastion figure in Omnic Crisis orange skin. This Overwatch toy can swivel at the waist, move its arms and features a small sub machine gun in the right arm. Fans will also appreciate Bastion’s friendly bird sidekick, Ganymede, also in the unique Omnic Crisis orange skin. This Overwatch buildable toy is a Blizzard exclusive and only available in limited quantities.
The LEGO version of Bastion is shown in his Omnic Crisis orange skin. You also get his friendly bird companion Ganymede. Bastion stands at over 4” (12cm) tall and is crafted from 182 pieces. It’s aimed for boys and girls aged 10+ and, of course, Overwatch fans of all ages. The limited quantities mean it will likely sell out fast, however. Diehard collectors will want to scoop this up soon for themselves or the Overwatch fan on your holiday list.
If you are attending BlizzCon this year, which runs from November 2-3, you can pick it up there too. I like the fact that is is also fully posable, so you can re-create your own Overwatch scenes in real life. It will look nice on a shelf or a desk while you play the real thing.
Here’s hoping LEGO and Blizzard announce more of these sets, or even something more. I’ve mentioned previously my wishes for a LEGO Overwatch spinoff game, and I would still love to see that happen. Until it does, though, these figures should keep us satisfied. Let us know if you plan on picking up LEGO Bastion or any future sets.
