A few weeks ago, LEGO Overwatch sets were listed at shop.LEGO.com for pre-order in the USA. Yesterday, they were listed as in stock and available to buy, but that seems to have been corrected. Now, all of the LEGO Overwatch are listed as: “Pre-order this item today; it will be in by 1 Jan 2019”.
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)
75971 Hanzo vs. Genji (£24.99 / $19.99)
75972 Dorado Showdown (£29.99 / $29.99)
75973 D.Va & Reinhardt (£34.99 / $39.99)
75974 Bastion (£54.99 / $49.99)
75975 Watchpoint: Gibraltar (£79.99 / $89.99)
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.
