Some new LEGO Overwatch were announced today: 75976 Wrecking Ball and 75977 Junkrat & Roadhog. I’m not an Overwatch player, but that Wrecking Ball speaks to me on so many levels. I mean, it’s a hamster piloting a mech. And the actual Wrecking Ball design is quite appealing. I might actually get this one.
And even though LEGO Overwatch is a theme that doesn’t appeal directly to my inner video game nerd, I definitely appreciate that more sets like these are being made. My only hope is that more video franchises will be explored and licensed because they tend to have a more lasting effect than kids movies that won’t stand the test of time.
75976 Wrecking Ball is $19.99 USD and has 227 pieces. 75977 Junkrat & Roadhog is $49.99 and has 380 pieces. Both will be on display for viewing at San Diego Comic Con at the Blizzard booth and will be available for purchase starting in October of this year.
And one more thing: The LEGO Group will be sponsoring the Twitch Rivals Overwatch Tournament on July 25th. More details and LEGO’s contributions to the tournament prize packs will be shared in the coming weeks.

I seriously don’t get Overwatch sets… LEGO is about building, Overwatch is entirely about characters. The locations mean little, but that’s where LEGO is padding out the price. I get them not wanting to go full to the figure market, but so much of this feels like it should have been a CMF line with a limited number of sets to capture bigfig style stuff.
