shop.LEGO.com is selling LEGO Overwatch sets, ahead of the originally anticipated January 2019 launch date. The new theme, based on the popular competitive video game, has been eagerly anticipated since it was announced earlier this year. It will be a shared exclusive between one retailer, as yet unannounced, and shop.LEGO.com.
There are six sets in the theme, all available now from shop.LEGO.com:
75970 Tracer vs. Widowmaker (£12.99 / $14.99)

Overwatch is based on Earth but set in the future, with the characters dealing with the fallout of the Omic Crisis. Winston, the sentient gorilla, leads the Overwatch team, that has been put together to restore order.
“We are very excited to come with a new IP proposition, which is kind of different IP proposition,” Marius Lang, the LEGO Group’s Head of Marketing for UK and Ireland, told Brick Fanatics in an exclusive interview. “There are lots of fans out there. We believe it’s a fantastic opportunity because it is a good story about a group of heroes wanting to make the world a better place, fighting for the greater good.”
