​Blizzard And LEGO Have Teamed Up To Create Overwatch Minifigures

If Overwatch themed Nerf guns weren't enough, Blizzard has teamed up with LEGO to create a bunch of minifigures taken straight from the online game.

This news was announced on the official Overwatch Twitter account, in the form of a seven second teaser. The video reveals that a total of six characters will be re-imagined for the LEGO universe, but who could they be?

The designs are kind of generic, except from a couple, so we'll let you debate between yourselves who you think the mini-figures could be.

With Gamescom wrapping up yesterday, the timing of this reveal surely can't be a coincidence. Let's hope they give them out as freebies at the event, or at the very least sell them.

There's also an Overwatch fan event being held in South Korean [via Dot eSports], where devs and LEGO reps themselves will be in attendance. If that's not a perfect opportunity to show off the minifigures, I don't know what is.

As soon as we know more about the official release date, who the characters could be, or any more Overwatch x LEGO news, we'll be sure to let you know.

As stated at above, this isn't the first time Blizzard has partnered their first-person shooter with a toy company.

Just last month we were let in on a deal between Nerf and Overwatch, which will result in two in-game weapons being transformed into a real-life, working Nerf gun.

Reaper's "Wight-skinned Hellfire" shotguns and D.Va's "Light Gun" will be released as part o the adult focused "Rivals" line, and will hit stores sometime next year.

What do you think about these new toys? Will you be getting some? Are the Nerf guns enough? What character do you want to be sold? Let us know.
