An insanely creative Overwatch player has breathed new life into Mercy’s Funko POP! figures, recreating two of the character’s most popular skins from the game for their custom version of the doll.
Blizzard Entertainment’s Overwatch made its debut in 2016, and quickly became one of the most popular FPS shooters in the industry. With a varied cast of characters, toy maker Funko announced the same year that they would be bringing the heroes to life with their POP! line.
However, a fan not entirely satisfied with the designs released so far decided to make their own custom figurines. The community will be sure to be wowed as they have recreated two of the healer’s most popular skins.
The Healer character has some of the most popular skins in the team-based shooter.
Mercy Funko POP! custom skins
One of the most popular characters in the FPS is the angel doctor Mercy. The healer hero has the ability to fly to teammates with her wings, and can even bring players back to life with her resurrect ability.
The character got her very own Funko POP! figurine in 2018 with two standard variants of her outfit. However a player got creative and re-created both the 2019 Atlantic All-Stars and Pink skins for the toy line.
Reddit user ‘lucky-c**t’ posted their creation on the Overwatch subreddit, and showed off the custom painted versions of Mercy. They look so good, it will make any fan wish they were real.

The Mercy fan wrote on their Reddit submission that they decided to make the customs after being gifted too many of the Funko POP!s. “I started painting because people kept gifting me Mercy funkos,” they said.
Another photo shows the doll up close with the hero’s 2019 All-Stars purple hair and striking blue eyes. The artist used multi-surface acrylic paint to get the job done.
The healer hero’s ‘All-Star’ legendary skin was released in 2019.
This isn’t the first time they’ve redesigned Overwatch figurines either. On February 5th, the player shared their custom Brigitte POP!, bringing her recently released ‘GOAT’ skin to life.
The Reddit user also shared a reskin for Brigitte’s figurine.
Overwatch has continued to be one of the most successful competitive shooters since its release over four years ago. The game’s colorful roster of heroes has made it popular among figurine collectors and cosplayers.

Feature Update: Improved Profanity Filter
We are making changes to how the Profanity Filter works to give players more control over the types of words they see. Instead of a simple On/Off Profanity Filter, there are now three levels of profanity filtering provided.
FRIENDLY – We’ll do our best to filter all words currently identified by our constantly-updated list as obscene, vulgar, or offensive. This is the most family-friendly setting.
MATURE – You may see some obscene or vulgar words with this setting, but we will filter language identified as extremely offensive.
UNFILTERED – Nothing will be filtered. Please be aware that you may see extremely offensive language. This setting is not recommended.
Along with the new three levels of filtering, we now will allow players to have different profanity filter settings for each communication channel. These channels include:
As an example, you could use the stronger FRIENDLY profanity filter option for more public channels such as GENERAL CHAT or MATCH CHAT, but use the MATURE option for the more private PARTY CHAT.
PLEASE NOTE: Using Any of the profanity filters doesn’t make it okay for players to use offensive language, and we encourage you to report these examples if you encounter them.
See Blizzard Entertainment’s In-Game-Code of Conduct for more information on acceptable behavior. Using language reported by the community and deemed offensive by Blizzard will result in severe account restrictions.
Feature Update: Elevator Adjustments
Elevators will now wait at the bottom of their track until a player boards the platform. After a short delay, the platform rises rapidly upward. Once the elevator reaches the top, it pauses briefly before returning to the bottom.
Developer Comments: We’ve received quite a bit of feedback about the unreliability of the looping elevators in Hollywood and Volskaya Industries. In an effort to improve that experience, we have re-designed the elevators in both maps so that they no longer endlessly loop. We hope that this change will make elevators a quicker and more reliable form of vertical transportation, while granting nearby players fair warning that the elevator is in use through updated sound effects.
