LEGO Overwatch was first announced in May, with the LEGO Group and Overwatch teasing the new product since then. In the latest update to the theme’s website, bananas and a jar of peanut butter are featured along with a quote from Overwatch – “imagination is the essence of discovery”. Brickset spotted the updated website.
The quote and the bananas pretty much confirm that Winston will feature in the new sets. Some of his other in-game sayings include “my new year’s resolutions, less peanut butter, more… bananas” and “no, I do not want a banana”. Oh, and he is a gorilla.
Brick Fanatics understands that the theme will launch with six traditional minifigure sets, along with a supporting range of minifigure focused packs with key accessories. In the UK, it will only be available at one specific retail chain. Due to the subject matter the game covers, there was an internal discussion within the LEGO Group to determine if would make for an appropriate theme.
