Blizzard has revealed a new statue of Overwatch hero Doomfist, which is now available for pre-order.

Most of Blizzard’s Gamescom presentation is yet to come, but one new addition that’s already being shown off at the event is a new addition to their line of Overwatch hero statues – Doomfist, posed ready to strike.

Designed with impeccable attention to detail and hand-painted, the Doomfist statue is the eighth in one of Blizzard’s premium merchandise lines. D.Va, Genji, Hanzo, Mercy, Tracer, Widowmaker and Reaper are also available in high-quality statue form.

The Doomfist statue is now available for pre-order at $300, pricing it between the most expensive of Blizzard’s range, D.Va, and the other statues which are available at $175.

Beyond the new statue, Blizzard is set to premiere a brand-new Overwatch Animated Short as part of their Gamescom presentation, but there are no further details about what to expect in terms of Overwatch announcements. With Wrecking Ball only recently rolling into the game, however, fans probably shouldn’t hold out hope for any new hero reveals.

Blizzard’s Gamescom presentation takes place on August 22, kicking off at 10:30am CEST and covering Overwatch from 11:15am CEST.
