Blizzard has partnered up with Lego to produce Overwatch Lego sets.
The deal comes amid a range of new partnerships as Activision Blizzard expands its merchandise licensing for Overwatch and the company’s other big franchises.
No details of exactly what the Lego sets will include have yet been confirmed, although fans can at least expect to see some of the game’s iconic characters in Lego form. Lego will reportedly produce Overwatch sets “across various price points”, so on the upper end fans can perhaps even hope to see full map recreations.
With a bit of creativity, some fans have already been able to produce Overwatch heroes from Lego before, some of which are remarkably accurate, but now fans will be able to get their hands on officially-designed Overwatch Lego for the first time. The timeline for release hasn’t yet been revealed.
In addition to the Lego partnership, Hasbro has been awarded the master toy license, and has plans to develop a line of Overwatch-themed NERF guns along with several other product lines, although full details have yet to be announced.
As well as the toy deals, Activision Blizzard has partnered with Uniqlo to bring Overwatch, Starcraft, and Diablo-themed apparel as part of their spring/summer 2018 collection.
