Earlier this month, Blizzard teased that they would be collaborating with LEGO to create some Overwatch LEGO sets. For those wondering what the first set will be, it turns out it is none other than Bastion where we can see the character recreated in all of its glory using nothing but LEGO bricks.
According to Blizzard’s description, “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.”
We expect that Blizzard and LEGO have plans to launch more LEGO sets in the future, but for now Bastion will be the first (and only) LEGO set for Overwatch. We reckon it would probably be cool if Blizzard and LEGO were to launch playsets based around the Overwatch maps, but we’ll have to wait and see what else they come up with.
We’ve seen Blizzard collaborate with various companies for different Overwatch merchandise. For example they worked with Hasbro for Overwatch Nerf guns, and they also worked with Japanese company Good Smile Company for various figurines.
