LEGO Overwatch teaser-videos & more!

in Other LEGO Themes

Back in May, it was revealed that LEGO will be making sets based on the Overwatch video game by Activision Blizzard. You can read the original announcement and discussion here: LEGO Overwatch Building Sets Coming! There has been speculations about what type of sets LEGO might be releasing, as Overwatch characters don’t naturally lend themselves to be made into traditional minifigs due to their diverse sizes and shapes. Finally, yesterday, a short teaser-video was released featuring Jeff Kaplan, the Game Director and Vice President at Blizzard Entertainment , playing with a minifig version of Tracer . 🙂

The teaser confirms that at least the lead characters in the LEGO Overwatch sets will be regular minifigures, which comes as happy news for Overwatch fans. You can watch the teaser below. Enjoy!

In addition to the teaser above, LEGO released another short teaser featuring just the holograms of six characters, as well as some of the locations. The six figures from left to right are Widowmaker, Reinhardt, Genji, Soldier 76, Mercy and McCree. In the video below, SolidBrixStudios analyses this earlier trailer, looking at what could be coming and when.

Another LEGO Overwatch character is teased at the official LEGO Overwatch website, which was recently updated with a new image featuring bananas and peanut butter and the phrase; “Imagination is the essence of discovery”. This is, of course, a reference to Winston, the super-intelligent, genetically engineered gorilla, and a favorite character from the game. Can’t wait to see him in LEGO form!

What do you think? Do you play Overwatch? How do you like the game? And what do you think of the characters and locations LEGO revealed or teased so far? What kinds of sets do you think LEGO will release? Feel free to share your thoughts and discuss in the comment section below! 😉

Really happy to see that they will be minifigs. Some people said they will all be Brickheadz. I hope they will announce the sets soon. Before Christmas would be great!

I’m curious how they are going to handle Winston. Is he going to be a regular large gorilla figure? Or will he have removable armor?

I think they are going to have a new mold for him. It’s important that he looks right. He will probably have some studs on the pack to attach a jetpack.

Guys, this is awesome! Can’t wait to see the sets! So, it seems like we will get at least three of the locations?

This is so cool! Can’t wait for the full reveal! When should we expect more info?

Oh… 🙁

I’m not sure if we will see the sets before Christmas, although it would certainly be great. But at least I hope we will get more reveals by then! 😀

We don’t know yet, but since three locations are featured in the teaser, many LEGO fans speculate that they will be in the sets. It would make sense.

Not sure, but I’m certainly keeping an eye on it. Hopefully we will know more soon! 😀

SolidBrix guessed there would be more info revealed at BlizzCon, Anaheim in November.

Yeah, that kind of makes sense.
