Can't wait for October! I have the line completed so far and these will make a great addition. Although i fear these will be the last Overwatch sets.

They should make another location based set with 3 characters. Like what they did with Dorado and Watchpoint: Gibraltar

Exclusive Lego prize to be sold on EBay by the winner? Hopefully it’s something that’s an actual build and ‘reverse-engineerable’ rather than a minifig. Overwatch has actually been a relatively easy-to-collect theme in its entirety so far with no polys and only that early Bastion set as an exclusive, but we’ll see...

Both look cool but I agree with a commenter that we both want locations based sets (imaging half a factory setting).

@Alakazam03: I wouldn't be surprised to see more sets like that early next year.

@The Rancor: If there were an exclusive minifigure as a prize, I'd expect it to represent an alternate "skin" for one of the characters rather than a core character in their default form. In fact, for that matter we don't know that the prize will be a physical one at all—since it's a video game tournament it's entirely possible that it might be some sort of in-game prize instead.

Hopefully they'll improve figure prints by then.

I've been a fan of the theme so far, even though I don't know a lot about the game itself. However, as said above, I fear that these are going to be the last sets of the theme... I hope that's not the case, this line should last longer. Lego hasn't even made a minfig of Mei yet, and she is one of the most popular characters from Overwatch.

Is hamster Wrecking Ball about as big as a penguin such as from the CMF?

I would LOVE a castle-like World of Warcraft theme sets!
Orcs, Elfs, Humans, Castles...

The builds are nice but I have less than 5 minutes playing with these characters. I wouldn't want this sets even it they were free (maybe to sell on ebay).

And wth are easy to make and attractive characters like Mei and Sombra?

Will there more summer Overwatch sets? Or only two? These two are great but I think more would be better, even though I'm not an Overwatch fan nor do I collect the sets

The ball with the hamster is a great parts pack for fans (like me) of all things sand green. Quite decent value too.
The motorbike set though at RRP is overpriced for what it is, so only interesting at a substantial discount. Not many great parts either. Cool design of course, but not 50 Euro like cool.

«iconic crime duo», «iconic peg leg».

I remember "iconic baseball cap" from Watch dogs.

People throw "iconic" so easily these days. Everything's "iconic".

@mafon2 - I totally agree. It’s gone the way of ‘awesome’ meaning something is OK, not genuinely awe inspiring.

I love that little hamster ball! That will be a fun excursion to the LEGO Store this fall.

Looking forward to these being discounted to the floor so I can pick up some as parts packs. Beyond that they are the best example why Lego is moving into the completely wrong direction. Not to spread any negativity or anything. ;)

Are those pics official images from the press release? The third ones (overhead, looking down, grey background) look like the kids accidentally dropped/broke the sets and are trying to put them back together. =D

That bigfig is WAY overdetailed.
Compare it toThanos...

By in United States,

^I'd argue that Thanos is under detailed. Roadhog along with the rest of the Overwatch characters have iconic outfits and identifying characteristics that make them who they are. I could understand a complaint that something is missing important details, but a complaint that something has all the correct details and is thus "overdetailed" just sounds like complaining for the sake of complaining.

@lordofdragonss: I don't know about that. The standard of detail seems fairly comparable to Killow from Ninjago, except with an added shoulder pad on one arm like Gladiator Hulk from the Thor Ragnarok sets. And it's certainly less detailed than bigfigs like Killer Croc from The Lego Batman Movie.

Notably, one reason that both this fig and the former fig I mentioned have more detail on the torsos is that they need to have custom lower torsos anyway. Many bigfigs actually share the lower half of their body assembly, with only the head and shoulder area varying. However, like Killow, Roadhog has to be designed to ride a motorcycle, and as such the standard bigfig pose (with one foot forward of the other) would not work as well here. Since there is no standardized lower torso section with the feet in-line with one another, and previous torso assemblies like that for Killow himself have excess detail that would be inaccurate for Roadhog, a new torso assembly mold is necessary.

Another fun detail about the Roadhog figure is that he seems to use a standardized minifigure head with headgear (again, like Killow, or the earlier Mungus from Legends of Chima) instead of having his head molded into the torso. That will allow his head to turn, unlike figs like Thanos. It'll be interesting to see if he has a face under there since I'm not sure whether Roadhog has been shown without his gas mask in Overwatch or any of its associated media.

An article from BZPower? Man that's a name I haven't heard in a long time... didn't realize they did more than BIONICLE news!
