Rocket barrage incoming from Overwatch’s Pharah

Pharah is such a unique character in Overwatch, combining the classic rocket launcher/jump jet pairing with a futuristic armor suit influenced by Egyptian culture. The team at Build Better Bricks has built an impressive LEGO sculpture of this formidable flying hero. Their model features outstanding attention to detail in her blue armor with gold embellishments throughout and detail in her partially exposed face and braided hair.

Pharah Flying

B3’s Pharah model is fully articulated to duplicate several flying poses from the game. My favorite is the Ultimate pose, which reveals rocket salvos primed to rain justice from above. Also notable is the clever, compact build of the Overwatch logo on the display stand.

LEGO Overwatch Reinhardt enters the battlefield

A LEGO Overwatch build has been revealed, and it’s this awesome rendition of the hero Reinhardt by Herbert Lee. The heavily-armored German is classified as a tank in the massively popular first-person shooter video game and his appearance here more than justifies the title. The model’s stout form looks like it can take a beating and the helmet looks remarkably accurate to the game, as does his signature rocket hammer.

Reinhardt- Overwatch

As an added bonus the Reinhardt model’s base is also a meticulously built and overly greebled recreation of the Overwatch logo. It also puts into perspective just how big Reinhardt is in brick form.

Finally, check out how fan builder Herbert’s model stacks up against the official LEGO Overwatch set in TBB’s recent review of 75953 D.Va and Reinhardt.

Let’s go for a ride! This LEGO Junkrat from Overwatch will blow your mind!

Blizzard’s Overwatch brand is now an official LEGO theme and it seems to be inspiring even more fans to create their favourite characters from their favourite bricks. This time it is Joffre with his interpretation of the insane Junkrat character.

Junkrat

The build perfectly captures the character, from various explosives to his iconic leg prosthetic and his crazy face — the latter probably being the best part. All sorts of colours in the hair capture the singed ‘do, while the raised eyebrows and his tongue sticking out show what a fun-loving guy he is. The pants also give a surprising amount of detail in their exotic colour scheme, which is a big plus to the overall build.

Winston from Overwatch is one gorilla you don’t want to mess with

As if a raging gorilla wasn’t imposing enough, this one wears body armor, has a jump jet, and shoots lightning from a massive Tesla cannon. You don’t have to be a fan of the squad shooter Overwatch to appreciate this impressive model of the hero Winston by LEGO 7. One of my favorite details, aside from the organic sculpting of Winston’s body armor, is the eyes, which look like yellow lightsaber blades inserted into the center of a headlight brick and covered with clear tiles. And that nose made from a binocular is just perfect.

Winston-Overwatch Hero

There’s one more detail that is easy to miss. Take a look at that base, made from tinted window panels, which catch just enough light to look like polished steel.

LEGO Overwatch 75974 Bastion [Review]

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.

LEGO Overwatch 75953 D.Va and Reinhardt [Review]

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.

LEGO Doomfist is a smashing great model

You don’t have to be a fan of the Overwatch game to appreciate this stunning model depicting one of the characters from the game. His name alone, Doomfist, immediately captures the imagination. Mech builder Kelvin Low brings this character to life and captures the likeness of its onscreen inspiration very well.

One of the many subtle details that make this model work so well is how the gold pyramid slopeson his left hand mirror the same detail in dark grey on the larger right hand. Kelvin, who typically builds mechs and robots, does a great job of creating sculpted muscles and clothing to take this figure to the next level.
