Was the “blizzard exclusive” a print or sticker?
I imagine they sell quite a few high end collector pieces for their various games. Surprised to see they would be so careless with shipping.
I'm curious if the brisk sales of the Bastion mini-build are any indicia if the video-gamer market is going to cross-over and buy these LEGO sets. I'd also be curious to know if Overwatch sells other merchandise. If they sell gobs of Funkos or whatever Overwatch fans would be buying up.
Yes, there are many Overwatch Pop! Vinyls and other similar products. As I far as I know, they're quite successful. The distinct appearance of each character certainly lends itself to the unusual style of Funko figures.
Overwatch fans, please explain that hover pickup... Thank you
Is there a release date on these?
I get the sense this build is way larger than its actual minifigure-scale size. (I am interested to see how they scale-down for the 'regular' sets.)
Is it safe to say these sets are based on the animated shorts? (I feel so old - I know nothing about this theme.)
Aanchir said:That said, it has been a little bewildering to me that many Bricksetters who've never heard of this before haven't been curious enough about it to even ask other AFOLs who are fans what the characters are supposed to be, let alone to look them up on Wikipedia! Maybe that impulse to try and clear up unfamiliar or confusing stuff online is also something younger people are more into? Here's a Wikipedia link if anyone wants to give it a skim (some of the characters also have their own more in-depth articles): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Characters_of_Overwatch
Dang it. I wasn't going to be interested in this at all I told myself.
