Amazon UK has revealed two new Overwatch sets that will be available in October. They cost £17.99 for 227 pieces and £44.99 for 380 pieces, which should translate to around $20 and $50, respectively, in the United States.

The first set, 75976 Wrecking Ball, features our favorite genetically modified hamster, Hammond, and his spherical mech - complete with transformation feature.

75977 Junkrat & Roadhog includes the titular criminal masterminds, as well as their peculiar motorcycle, some Junkertown scenery, and even a Pachimari!

I do not play Overwatch, but man, that Junkrat & Roadhog set is beautiful.

I think my wallet is hiding from me.....

I like the wrecking ball because I like Hamsters.
I have never played overwatch.

Both sets are brilliant

I don't play Overwatch but I want both of these. They're fantastic fun even with no knowledge of the source material. Well done, Lego!

Not my kind of set, don't know that much about Overwatch but both look absolutely gorgeous, they seem to be quite displayable and playable as well! Love the colour scheme

I only played overwatch a little bit when it first came out and haven't played since 2016, but I must say the LEGO sets are quite appealing, I only have the widowmaker vs. tracer set but I really like it, and the minifigure designs are the perfect balance of accuracy and LEGO style.

I’m afraid I’m another who hasn’t played overwatch but love these sets, especially the wrecking ball set. Just has that cool Japanese anime look to me, brilliant !

That hamster though.

I do not play Overwatch, but I must say these two sets look amazing (as did the first wave, IMO). I think LEGO has done a phenomenal job with the Overwatch theme so far (and I know virtually nothing about the game). 75977 also has to be one of the sets with the largest amount of decorated pieces I've seen in a while. I can sort of tell which ones I know/think will be stickers, but I can see quite a few prints as well, which is a great thing!

Crikey, allow me to break the chain and announce that I DO play Overwatch. Interesting to see Lego lean into these being built for display more than play, especially with the Junkertown set. And is it possible that Roadhog is able to turn his head? Or is it fixed looking slightly to the right?

As for Wrecking Ball, this is the first character that wasn’t in the original lineup, which is curious. Much too big of course, but then the same can be said of Reinhardt and Dva, and they’re both great. And Bastion was of course colossal.

I'm with you @Koolbrix2018.

The sets. The parts. The figs. I'm speechless

I know nothing of Overwatch but I think I need that hamster character! Nice looking sets too.

Gravatar

Looks like roadhog has a minifigure head on a bigfig body, like Killow from Ninjago or one the chima figs.

I like to build my own mechs. So in my opinion that Wrecking Ball mech looking absolutely gorgeous!
It seems that a very well skilled designer worked on both sets! Bravo Lego!

Missed opportunity to pop an additional character into the Wrecking Ball set, but nevertheless, great looking sets.

Both sets look beautiful but my wallet is thanking me that they aren't location based.

I WANT HAMSTER!

Whoa, some really cool and innovative builds here!

The Wrecking Ball set does some awesome stuff to achieve its spherical shape. I can't help but be reminded of the Bohrok sets from the Bionicle theme, although in this case LEGO seems to have very impressively managed a similar effect without any noticeable reliance on new molds.

Although, I do wonder if the Bright Yellow cross axle with stud on the front of Wrecking Ball is a recolor of https://brickset.com/parts/design-6587 or a similar part in a new length?

The Junkrat and Roadhog set doesn't seem to do much that's quite such an obviously ambitious technical achievement, but it looks great in its own right, and it's neat to see how to really maximize its reach within a 10+ recommended age range, the designers seem to have made a concerted effort to ensure it works equally well with the bike and scenery connected together as a display piece or separated as a playset.

I'm not a tremendously avid fan of the game and not too keyed into some of the specifics of how these characters, vehicles, and scenes should or shouldn't look, but on the whole I'm impressed with what I see here and I hope more dedicated Overwatch fans will be as well!

@Bobsy: THANK YOU for commenting, because for a moment it felt like the Overwatch community and Brickset community were mutually exclusive! That would be difficult to fathom, considering how interest in both Overwatch and LEGO I tend to see within my social circle, and how much overlap I also tend to see on a broader level between "gamers" and LEGO fans in general.

I myself am not much of a gamer and have nowhere near the skill level nor the reflexes for this type of competitive multiplayer gaming, which is why I have a hard time considering myself an Overwatch fan. But I've greatly enjoyed the animated mini-movies and other parts of the lore that I've seen shared online.

It's definitely a really neat world that Blizzard has developed here, even if the piecemeal way that the story has been developed can result in inconsistencies in the overarching narrative. Fortunately that weakness is balanced out by how varied and compelling its characters are in both their designs and concepts.

@Phathead: The idea of robots that can fold up into a wheel or sphere definitely predates the Droideka. Thinking about where that concept might've originated certainly piqued my curiosity, and I've had no luck tracking down any answers to that effect.

In the very least I found that the video game Tetrisphere ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tetrisphere ), which came out in 1997, used a similar transforming sphere concept for its robot characters. And comparisons can also be drawn to the Morph Ball ability of Samus Aran's Power Suit in Metroid, which came out in 1986.

But I suspect the idea is probably much older, since all it would really take is for some sci-fi vehicle or robot designer to take inspiration from real-life creatures like armadillos or pill bugs.

I NEED Wrecking Ball and I don't play Overwatch

I've spent many a pre-game demolishing that junker motorcycle...

By in United States,

@Aanchir, I would like to add to that and say there is no real reason to assume the LEGO community and Overwatch fans are mutually exclusive, as I myself am a huge fan and love all the sets so far!

In fact, the first wave of sets being leaked last year was actually the catalyst for me getting into it. I really admire the world that Blizzard has worked to build, and appreciate it being brought to LEGO form with such an attention to detail. There's really something for everyone in both the game and sets.

I am sure there are many who just peruse Brickset, and don't bother to comment, that consider themselves Overwatch fans, as well. I would love for them to speak up, as it would make the current discussion even more interesting!

Both sets look very interesting, I'll probably end up picking them both up

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Zero surprise we're getting these two sets given they're fan favourites, and were the most requested additions multiple times.

Gravatar
By in United States,

So the ball is $50??

Gravatar
By in Australia,

Love them, will be getting both, now can you just make World of Warcraft Lego already =P

Gravatar
By in United States,

^^ No, it’s $20. J&R seems to be $50 or so.

By in United States,

don't play overwatch but can't pass up the hamster one for that price

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Completely hate the theme but the Wreaking ball set is one of the many autumn sets unjust have to get and at £18 what bargain, the hamster is a awesome new mould. The bike one I have absolute no interest in though I'm sure it's a good set for the fans of the franchise

Gravatar
By in United States,

I’ve never played the game but I’m collecting the entire theme...it looks great I hope to see much more.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I really want the Wrecking Ball one. It's been a while since I've played Overwatch, and these reveals were a good reminder.

Gravatar
By in Japan,

WHERE IS MEI!? Ó____Ò"""

Gravatar
By in United States,

Wrecking Ball is pretty cool, but the Junkertown set is pretty uninteresting and obviously aimed at kids. Good parts in it, however.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Both look great. Might get a second copy of the JR and RH set and modify the bike to explode easily. You know, channel my inner rat.

Gravatar
By in Australia,

I don't even know what Overwatch is, bu that hamster mecha? I'm onboard.

Gravatar
By in France,

I, for one, am a huge fan of Lego, am a huge fan of Overwatch and I play it almost every day, and I also even worked on the license for Blizz, so I'm very very happy and satisfied to see that those sets, so far, have been the good balance between the source material, and the Lego rendering of them.
Those two new ones look amazing. I'm very pleased.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Did the pieces not exist when they did the Hoth Ion Cannon, cause that Wrecking Ball looks a whole heck of a lot better for a sphere made of Lego.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'm an Overwatch fan, and I love these Lego sets. The first wave of sets was cool, but these sets easily top the first wave. I love them both and will get them day 1. I'm so glad they did Roadhog as a big fig. I'm also thrilled there aren't any repeat characters this time around.

I really hope Lego continues with this theme and does the rest of the characters.

I always thought that here it was about the Lego Owerwatch sets, not about what do you know or if you play Owerwatch or not. Frankly I do not care of the last.
The sets are looking intriguing.

Gravatar
By in Australia,

I have never played Overwatch, I have no idea what these sets are, but the attention to detail here is outstanding! These are very good sets, more stuff like this Lego, in any theme!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Junkrat's horrifying outie belly button is nicely done away with on the Lego version. I mean it's still technically there but I was worried that they would sculpt it.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

I love when they try to do something different like that motorcycle set, the silent Mary or the first big ideas set (old fishing store)

Gravatar
By in United States,

I DO play Overwatch and I am getting both of these!

Gravatar
By in Canada,

The only two things that happen in my basement office are building LEGO and playing Overwatch. Ok, so occasionally some work gets done too.

Love this wave. Hoping we get a Zarya soon.

By in Japan,

I’m assuming Roadhog gets a blank head and a mask, from how he is facing forward in the actual photograph.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Roadhog bigfig YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEES!!!

Gravatar
By in Germany,

Cool builds, bit pricey though for my liking, especially the one with the motorbike.
But as I foresee huge discounts on those as per usual there will surely be good deals to be had.
So someday I will be getting them, even though I don't know the source material. Then again, I also loved the Mixels theme and had never seen a single episode of that show (didn't even know there existed one until after the theme ended) either.

Don't need to know about source materials to appreciate cool sets.

Oh and that hamster is funny too. My girls will want to add it to their Friends-animals-populated zoo ;-)

By in Netherlands,

These are much more interesting than the first wave. A stronger focus on the characters, not the background is what this theme needed.

Gravatar
By in Australia,

75976 is awesome, I might even pay RRP for it.

75977 though is the first one of these sets Im not really interested in. Sure its got a bigfig but its still incredibly expensive for what it is, and the first wave of sets *still* havent ever been discounted in Australia. But it also feels like something Lego's already done a million times before. I dont know if that motorbike actually exists in Overwatch or if as usual with oversived motorbikes its something Lego just made up, but either way, to me its still another weird oversized spikey motorbike that we've seen a lot of times before.

Gravatar
By in Germany,

The hamsters ball is quite cool, the bike not so. The latter looks more like ninjago or the latest oversized cap-bike... It's for kids and fans, and that's ok.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Like the majority on here I've never played the game but the Junkrat & Roadhog set is one of the best I've seen for ages. The vehicle on a little vignette is a brilliant design and one I'd love to see in other lines.

The Wrecking Ball is a bit meh and I'd expect it to mean more to fans of the game.

I'm not playing Overwatch, but I'm playing Fallout. Junktown set would be cool >_>.

By in Norway,

The 75977 Junkrat & Roadhog is nice! With a little modification it will fit nicely into the Apocalypseburg district ;)

Gravatar
By in United States,

Never played the game, just watched some of the mini-movies, but I love this theme. My kids actually play with these sets without tearing them to pieces so I have to keep up on it.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I am also one of the few here who HAVE played Overwatch. These sets are just fantastic. I rarely collect every set from a theme, but Lego has done a brilliant job in translating all of these heroes into brick form. I love the displayability of the junkertown set, and it really shows Lego's awareness of the potentially older target audience.

Also, to those who are intrigued by Overwatch but haven't played it, watch the animated shorts on Youtube, they do a lot for the characters. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sB5zlHMsM7k&list=PLAYFVhxsaqDuOh4Ic5mRu5CiZVKCMVv66&index=10

By in United Kingdom,

Exciting sets! Liked the first wave too.
I hope they consider doing the same for Starcraft (siege tank and others) and Warcraft (as a Castle reinstated theme, create some two-headed ogres)... I don't know how successful the overwatch theme has been until now.

Gravatar
By in United States,

These are both great looking sets. I expect I'll be picking both up.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I will definitely get that Hamster. My kids love the mech set with the pink mech and that gray one. Nobody in my house plays Overwatch, but these sets are too awesome to pass up.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I play overwatch, and I don't think my wallet can handle buying that junkrat and roadhog set(especially since his just purchased The Upside Down)! Looks amazing!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'm surprised we've got a set for Hammond and Wrecking Ball already, given that they are a very recent hero and LEGO hasn't even produced the full original line up! I'm also struggling to get a sense of scale on Hammond. It feels like he isn't intended to be a display model like the previous waves Bastion given the price, but it still looks like he's much to large for the minifigure scale sets.

I knew that Roadhog and Junkrat would be in a set together, and I hoped it would be their motorcycle, but the Junkertown display stand is a pleasant surprise! I quite like all the little details of scrap and machines around it's base.

If I'm remembering the lore correctly, I believe Hammond built his Wrecking Ball mech inside of Junkertown, so these two sets actually go together really well! Maybe that's why WB's being released so early.

If LEGO is doing the newer heroes even before completing the OG roster I really hope we get Orisa soon! She's my favorite.

By in Canada,

Both sets look great, w/a slight bit more 'lean' towards 'Wrecking Ball', as it juuust a little more interesting (dig the pilot/driver, love the transforming from 'walker' to 'ball'; but I really want to see how it rolls).
'Roadhog's doesn't look at all bad either: dig that chopper, love TLG got the weapons looking 'right', same w/the characters.
I thinks it's 'wins' all around:)

@jeandesirekatanga
It would be PERFECT] a Space-like Starcraft and a castle-like Warcraft sets! <3

Gravatar
By in Canada,

I play Overwatch as well, although more casually; I haven't even tried competitive. I just love all the character designs. I already own the entire current lineup, and will definitely be picking both of these up as well. I really hope that we do get more sets in this theme down the road; I would love to see the entire lineup represented!

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

As an active LEGO collector and Overwatch player i can't wait to add these to the collecting. The whole first wave looks incredible together on the shelf!

Hopefully this isn't the end of the theme or LEGO's partnership with Blizzard. I would love to see some LEGO World of Warcraft. That would be a dream come true, which LEGO Overwatch already is.

By in Canada,

Personally, I think a set in promotion is around 20-25% . The sets that get a discount of 30, heck 40% !! They’re not selling, to not blatantly say that a majority of people don’t care about it , period. So, i am so tired of people who say that a set is not bad but they ´re going to wait for 30-40% off. :( Those people, in my opinion are practically saying: from the day you’re released, you’ll be selling horribly, so much so that there will be a huge discount at some point and LEGO is most likely not going to be doing anything like that again. I like discounts, but 30-40% off are not a compliment to a set, or , in some cases and to some degree, to a theme in general.
