We recently reviewed 75953 D.Va and Reinhardt from the latest tie-up between LEGO and Blizzard, resulting in a complete line of LEGO Overwatch sets. Let’s take a look at the second-largest set in the theme, 75974 Bastion. The set will be released in January and includes 602 pieces, with a retail price of $49.99 USD — the largest character build in this release of six sets. In the game, Bastion’s default mode is a bipedal robot armed with a sub-machine gun. Its alternate mode is in the form of a turret, leaving it immobile but highly dangerous. This build attempts to capture the essence of Bastion in both these modes. Let’s dive in to see how it stacks up.
When LEGO first announced the licensing partnership with Blizzard earlier this year to feature sets based on the team-based first-person shooter Overwatch, newsfeeds went through the roof. LEGO and Blizzard released 75987 Omnic Bastion early back in October, and today we take a look at one of six LEGO Overwatch sets that will start to ship January 1. 75953 D.Va & Reinhardt retails for 39.99 USD and includes a total of 455 pieces.
If you want to get them early, some of these LEGO sets are available for pre-order from the LEGO Shop online.
Today at BlizzCon, LEGO not only revealed the entire lineup of Overwatch sets (available for pre-order now), but also showed off this towering 9-foot tall model of D.Va and her mech made from nearly 150,000 pieces.
D.Va and her mech weigh a combined 1,256 pounds, took LEGO master builders 731 hours to build, and contains more than 43,000 pink bricks. The model is based off of the upcoming LEGO Overwatch set 75973 D.Va and Reinhardt.
The model will be on display to attendees of Blizzcon from November 2-3 at the in Anaheim Convention Center. Check out this timelapse of it being built:
Also, take a look at the gallery below for close-ups and a view of the back of the model.
Today at BlizzCon, the LEGO Overwatch line was officially unveiled with the surprise announcement that all six sets are available for pre-orders immediately. The sets will be available January 1st and range in prices from $14.99 to $89.99 USD.
The LEGO Overwatch line (unintentionally previewed by Target last week) was announced by LEGO Designer Woon Tze Chee. Check out our first impressions of the sets here, our review of the Blizzard Exclusive Omnic Bastion, or keep reading for the official photos and descriptions.
Target has today revealed all six of the LEGO sets from the upcoming LEGO Overwatch line, based on the hit team-based video game from Blizzard. This follows the early release of the small-scale mecha 75987 Omnic Bastion from Blizzard’s online store. The full-size sets include minifigures of iconic characters such as Tracer, D.Va, and more.
We’ll bring you an update when we have more information, though we can confirm January 1st availability for these sets. EDIT: The sets are now available for pre-order, shipping January 1, 2019.
The first ever set in the LEGO Overwatch line was revealed last week as 75987 Omnic Bastion. The set is a Blizzard exclusive with a limited production run for BlizzCon 2018 next month, however a small amount has been made available for purchase online in the Blizzard Gear Store.
The exclusive set contains 182 pieces and sells for $25.00 USD until supplies run out. More than likely, this set will not be part of the full LEGO Overwatch line available generally when it launches sometime in the next few months, so we suggest getting it before it becomes unavailable if you are interested.
Blizzard Entertainment, the studio behind multiplayer first-person shooter game Overwatch, unveiled an exclusive, limited edition LEGO Omnic Bastion building set today, available for purchase online in the Blizzard Gear Store and later on-site at BlizzCon 2018 on November 2 and 3, 2018, in Anaheim, California.
Bastion is a hero in Overwatch with two modes: Recon, and Sentry. The Omnic skin reflects the appearance of Bastion units during the Omnic Crisis, and is not the default tan and green skin Overwatch players begin with in game. The set also includes Bastion’s bird companion, Ganymede, which can be perched atop Bastion’s shoulder plate. LEGO 75987 Omnic Bastion retails for $25 USD and is available now in the Blizzard Gear Store online.
