Where are you getting that information from? The article that first mentioned it only said,
“Additionally, LEGO® Group has plans for multiple Overwatch building sets across various price points.”
Honestly, I’m pretty excited about this. Overwatch is huge right now (though maybe not as huge as in 2016), and Lego is doing good to capitalize on that. The Lego Movie kinda helped to catapult Lego back into the mainstream, but there’s still a social stigma attached to it. Getting Overwatch’s audience (12-18) back into Lego would be a great thing.
Personally, while I would love to see Overwatch constraction figures, I don’t think it’s likely. Star Wars constraction hasn’t exactly been performing great, and I highly doubt Lego would take a risk like that on an IP this important. I could easily see Brickheadz being a thing, but considering it mentions multiple price points, I don’t think that’s right either. My assumption is that the line will be 5-7 system sets that are (roughly) based on maps from Overwatch. For example,
Eichenwalde Attack! ($40)
The evil Talon agents are attacking the fortress of Eichenwalde! You must defend against them, and stop the payload!
- Includes 4 minifigures: Reinhardt, Mercy, Reaper, and Talon Soldier
- Also includes Bastion constructed from bricks!
- Protect your allies with Reinhardt’s brickbuilt shield!
- Use the payload battering ram to open the door to the castle!
- Transform Bastion into turret or tank mode!
Obviously I have no idea what the actual sets will be, but I feel that style of set would work very well. At any rate, whether it be system, Brickheadz, or constraction, I will be content.
