The First of Many, Revealed
Today there was a big announcement on Twitter. The Official Overwatch page revealed the first of the long awaited LEGO sets. And who could be better to start the craze than the friendly omnic, Bastion.
When first announced in August during Gamescom, LEGO became the main topic of speculation in the Overwatch community. After that, a short video that featured Jeff Kaplan, vice president of Blizzard Entertainment and director of the Overwatch team, building a tiny Tracer, gave us a first look at the mini-figure.
The set is currently available exclusively on the Blizzard Gear store with a price of $25. He can be ordered right now as well! This first set comes as a limited edition, and with Blizzcon right around the corner, you can be sure we’ll be getting more soon!
Standing at 5″, the lovable omnic has a look that we can see in any match with a skin you can own in game. Wearing his Omnic Crisis colors, he comes with a machine gun arm that can shoot a tiny yellow projectile. The set is made up of 182 pieces and a sticker sheet. He also comes with a base you can place him over that has the LEGO and Blizzard logos.
Of course, Bastion wouldn’t be the robot we all know without his bird-partner Ganymede. He comes in a red color, which is how he looks like in-game when you wear the skin.
If you want to do something that’s not playing Overwatch, but still want it to be Overwatch related, with Christmas season coming soon, be sure to add this lovable omnic to your shopping lists!
