[In Athena voice]: "Welcome to Watchpoint: Gibraltar. Prepare for review."

This is the flagship set of this Overwatch wave and represents the final point of the Watchpoint: Gibraltar map.

About Overwatch

For those who are unfamiliar with Overwatch, click below for a brief summary of what it is:

 

 

Overwatch is a team-based multiplayer first-person shooter video game by Blizzard Entertainment. It was released on May 24, 2016 for PlayStation 4, XboxOne, and Windows, and it has since gathered a huge fanbase and has even become a popular esport. What sets Overwatch apart from other first-person shooters such as Fortnite or PUBG is that it encourages teamwork as players are put into two teams of six, with each player selecting from a roster of nearly 30 characters, known as "heroes", each with a unique style of play whose roles are divided into three general categories that fit their role: tank, damage, or support. Players on a team work together to secure and defend control points on a map or escort a payload across the map in a limited amount of time.

This is the first Lego theme based on a first-person shooter game (unless you count the Star Wars Battlefront subtheme) since those usually go against their brand values, so many were shocked when this theme was announced. However, what makes Overwatch different from most other shooters is that it has a stylized kid-friendly look to it and takes place in the future with fictional weapons much like Star Wars, so it doesn’t violate TLG’s no-modern-warfare rule. This is also the reason that drew me to this game as I don’t like depictions of realistic war in video games either.

Another great thing about Overwatch is that it has a lot of lore behind it. While there sadly is no story mode in the game, the backstory behind the setting and its characters is revealed in web comics and beautifully animated short films. Seriously, even if you have no interest in playing the game, I strongly recommend you go check out the shorts on YouTube; they just might change your mind with their Pixar-level quality. The story of Overwatch is basically that in a future Earth, there was a golden age of technology where humans and robots called Omnics lived together in peace until the Omnics decided to rise up against the humans. A team of the world’s finest heroes called Overwatch was formed by the UN to fight off the robot uprising and they succeeded. Overwatch kept the peace for several decades, but due to in-fighting between its members and allegations of failure, Overwatch was eventually shut down. Six years later, with a terrorist organization called Talon causing trouble all over the world and a second Omnic Crisis on the horizon, former Overwatch member Winston decides to reform the team and save the world once again. This is where the game begins.

Add to that an ever-growing roster of fun and diverse characters and a relatively positive and creative fan community and you can see why TLG chose to make a theme based on this game. I bought Overwatch on a Black Friday sale 2 years ago and have been playing it almost every day since then because it’s just so fun and addictive! So let’s see if the sets are just as fun.

For the Overwatch® fan, the iconic Overwatch rocket and launch tower from one of the game’s most popular maps with LEGO® Overwatch Watchpoint: Gibraltar 75975! Based on the internationally acclaimed team-based action game, this building set features an Overwatch rocket that splits into 2 separate rockets, and 3 Overwatch characters including Pharah with her Rocket Launcher, Mercy with her Caduceus Staff and Blaster, Reaper with his twin Hellfire Shotguns, and a Winston big figure with his Tesla Cannon. Youngsters will like playing with the buildable rocket and Overwatch heroes with their unique weapons, while adult fans will want to build and display this instantly recognizable collectible model near their gaming rigs to show their affinity for the game!

The Box

The box art for this set is very dynamic as it shows the rocket blasting off from the launchpad from a bird's eye view. I like how the tip of the rocket and the tower overlap the Lego Overwatch banner with Tracer at the top as it really makes the image pop. You can also see Reaper climbing the tower in his wraith form and Mercy gliding next to the rocket while Winston is... throwing peanut butter at it? :wacko: Sure, why not. Maybe that's his way of christening the rocket. The Blizzard logo that is usually in the lower right corner is in the lower left this time in order not to cover up the launchpad.

31535571407_e3a0103348.jpg

The back features a more straight-on image of the set that depicts the minifigs in a scene that much closer resembles an instance from the game where Pharah, Mercy, and WInston are teaming up against Reaper. A popular strategy in the game is to have a Mercy follow a Pharah around as she flies over the battlefield raining down justice from above and keep her healed and boosted the whole time. This comp is known as Pharmercy and it's great to see it being referenced on the box here. Like with all the Overwatch back box arts, there is also the set info again, name tags for all the heroes, and the URL for the Overwatch product page on LEGO.com.

46475355741_39db728c90.jpg

The top of box features the set name in five different languages and a lineup of all the minfigs at 1:1 scale where Winstons left arm is awkwardly cut off on the edge.

31535574007_d854c55509_c.jpg

The bottom just has the usual choking hazard warnings.

44658441580_d1f184f828_c.jpg

On one side of the box there is a render of the minifigs striking various poses while on the other there are just the Overwatch and Lego Overwatch logos.

44658440980_72aa1a6469.jpg 46475356031_35c0f858a4.jpg

Contents

All the contents of the box are inside of plastic bags. There is a bag with a sticker sheet and two instruction booklets (one for the rocket and one for the launch site), a bag containing Winston's body parts, a big containing roller coaster tracks and long plates, and six numbered bags, two of which both have the number 1.

31535574457_6188d2eac1_c.jpg

Instructions

As usual with these sets, the first pages show you how to build the set using the numbered bag system, how to use a brick separator, and how to download digital instructions for the set using the Lego Life app.

44658438490_368c002172_c.jpg

And like the other Overwatch instructions, these are clear to read and have a discreet light blue background.

45751892614_db2ba0ba4c_c.jpg

On the back of the final instructions booklet it lets you know that this set can be combined with 75970 Tracer vs. Widowmaker. More on this later.

46475352821_4473fc659e_c.jpg

Notable Parts

Which parts are notable in this set? A better question would be what parts AREN'T noteworthy! This set is chock-full of rare and completely new elements! There are a bunch of straight red roller coaster tracks including a short one that otherwise only appear in the expensive large Roller Coaster set in this color, space shuttle hull pieces in white and black, various plates and tiles in dark azure, 2x2 curved tiles in dark red, the rectangular shield in white, 1x1 round plates with a bar on the side in gray, 2x2 triangle tiles in black, and bar holders with handle and a 2x2 plate with 2 studs in blue. The latter is exclusive to this set in this color and there is no real reason for it to be blue as it is mostly hidden in finished set, but I won't look a gift plate in the mouth. However, the most exciting recolor strangely enough just might be the brick separator that is included in this set as it comes for the first time in the recently resurrected teal color! Never has a brick separator looked more beautiful and I wouldn't mind if they only produced them in this color from now on! :wub_drool:
But that's not all! We also get several new molds such as pair of 4x6 wedge plates in white and several pairs of 3x3 wedge slopes also in white. These seem like extremely useful parts and I hope to see a lot more of them in the future. We also get that new 2x2 tile with a 1x2 plate coming out of its center at a 90 degree angle in black like in the Bastion set and the new gun mold in dark gray like in the Dorado Showdown. Printed parts include the checkpoint marker dish and 1x1 health pack cylinder that are also available in the Tracer vs. Widowmaker set.

31535572007_cd9b77c8eb_c.jpg

Minifigs

There are 4 figs in this set, so let's talk about them, ladies first! I am a Mercy main (meaning I play her the most) and Pharah is the only damage hero I am good at, so I am very happy to get both of these awesome heroines in the first wave and in the same set no less. Mercy is sadly the only support hero that we get in this wave (supports are always so underappreciated :sadnew:), but she's a good choice since she's quite a popular character, even though she has been receiving some hate lately because of how easy she is to play and the countless nerfs (downgrades to her abilities) that she has received since the release of the game. Mercy a.k.a. Dr. Angela Ziegler is a brilliant Swiss medic and scientist who served as a guardian angel to the Overwatch team for a long time until she left the organization because she disagreed with its militaristic methods. Pharah a.k.a. Fareeha Amari is courageous Egyptian protector who grew up wanting to join Overwatch like her mother Ana, but never got the chance when it got shut down and started working for Helix Security International instead.

Mercy has a great new hairpiece with her golden halo molded onto it and comes with a cleverly brick-built version of her Caduceus Staff with which she can either heal or boost teammates with. The set description on Shop@Home says that the set comes with her Caduceus Blaster as well, but I regret to report that no such blaster is included. Very disappointing. :sad: She has detailed printing that goes from her torso all the way down to her toes. Unfortunately, she is suffering from stormtrooperitis which is causing the flesh colored printing on her black head to appear pale. This is usually not an issue when the head is covered by a helmet, but it's pretty distracting here. Pharah has a great looking new helmet mold and blue Nexo Knights armor to represent her Raptora Mark VI combat suit which works surprisingly well. Like Mercy, she has detailed torso printing that extends down her legs, although the printing stops at her knees. She gets a stud shooter gun to represent her rocket launcher and it comes with two extra pieces of ammo.

46475360211_a824472847_c.jpg

Comparing them to how they look in the game, they're pretty spot-on. Only Pharah could have been slightly more accurate with a new armor mold, but again, the Nexo Knights one works fine.

31535624707_9abb41f871.jpg 45562344115_4d50d11911.jpg

Here is a side so that you can get a better look at the new hair/helmet pieces. Just look at the gorgeous metallic printing on the side of Pharah's helmet!

46475360621_4420753536_c.jpg

Mercy wears a clear neck bracket with Chima wings attached to it to represent her Valkyrie wings. They don't look as mechanical as they should, but they do their job well enough. Pharah's wings are brick-built in such a brilliant way that they can fold all the way down when she's on the ground and can fold up once she's flying. Very impressive.

46475360401_5958c74e26_c.jpg

Both of them have some nice back printing as well. Here is a picture of them without their headgear and wings so that you can see it better. You also get an unobstructed view of Pharah's face here which features the udjat tatoo under her right eye that she got to honor her mother's memory when she appeared to have been killed in action. Unfortunately Pharah doesn't come with an extra hairpiece for when she takes her helmet off like Reinhardt and McCree, but oh well.

31535577117_820de4e6cd_c.jpg

They also both have double sided heads with angry expressions. These ladies are not to be messed with!

45751899784_9c431fd854_c.jpg

The other two figures in the set are a bigfig of Winston and a Reaper minifig. Reaper is the same as the one you get in the Dorado Showdown set, except he comes with a ghostly leg piece to make him exclusive and to represent him in his wraith form, a ghostly state that he can go into to become invulnerable for a short time. He also has his twin Hellfire shotguns again. Winston is a super-intelligent, genetically engineered gorilla from the moon because that's just the crazy futuristic world Overwatch takes place in. He is a brilliant scientist and the one that initiated the reforming of Overwatch. He was driven to this decision when Reaper and his Talon goons attacked him in his lab at Watchpoint: Gibraltar in an attempt to download the Overwatch agent database as seen in the animated short "Recall". Therefore, it makes sense for these two to be included in this set. Winston comes with a brick-built representation of his Tesla Cannon and a small health pack, both of which look fairly accurate as well.

31535577597_aa8a42235b_c.jpg

Being a completely newly molded bigfig, Winston looks pretty accurate to his appearance in the game, although he is missing some of the mechanical details on his spacesuit. As I said in my Dorado Showdown review, Reaper is also accurate except for his slightly scrunched-looking mask.

45562343945_dcf444e343.jpg 45751965874_3d201971bf.jpg

Winston is more slouched down than other bigfigs and his arms are more stretched out. This doesn't allow him to rotate his arms fully, but it lets him lift himself up by his knuckles as a gorilla does. His arms lack any kind of printing which is a shame.

31535577787_56866200a2_c.jpg

Winston's jump pack is brick-built as well and mounted to his back. Reaper has his trench coat shaped cape again and it still looks nice and trenchcoaty.

31535578037_b4d9a7f742_c.jpg

Like Bane from TLBM, Winston has four studs on his back which hold the jump pack to his back. Reaper also comes with a pair of black legs. Here is a picture of him without his cape so you can see his back printing.

46424431412_5735d060eb_c.jpg

The Build

This first bag contains Pharmercy, the teal brick separator (did I mention it's TEAL?!), and the parts for the front half of the spacecraft.

45751896744_fb5917d611_c.jpg

You start the build with a boat hull and then add various wedge plates onto it. Pretty basic stuff.

31535574837_9b71de8069_c.jpg

After you add a few more white plates and slopes, the tip of the rocket is finished.

44658443830_de9a090fa0_c.jpg

Bag #2 contains the lower half of the back section of the rocket.

32602845638_dd44c90dd6_c.jpg

This part of the build is similar to the first, just a much bigger scale. What I like here is that the walls of the front are entirely made using SNOT tiles.

44658442920_3d9c51d329_c.jpg

Bag #3 has the necessary parts to finish the rest of the rocket. It also holds Reaper and his cloak in a separate box.

45751897694_01678be3b6_c.jpg

Once you add the roof and the stabilizer wings, the last part of the rocket is complete. I like how they used they used the triangle tiles along with the Nexo Knights shield to form a larger triangle at the top and the pear-shaped build in front of it is pretty neat too.

31535576167_48097fc4ae_c.jpg

Next you begin building the launchpad. Bag #4 has all the parts needed for this.

44658443550_bbcb730029_c.jpg

The construction of the launchpad is pretty simple. I like the use of a sideways 1x1x6 column as a pipe though.

45751898654_d70bc6aaaf_c.jpg

I see red for bag #5 because this one has the parts for the red launch tower.

44658437500_494d91546c_c.jpg

Once you add it onto the launchpad, the build is complete.

44658444450_cb2651427f.jpg

Spare Parts

There are several of the usual small bits left over after the build. Nothing too exciting, except for the teal brick separator of course! :grin:

45751898124_b870980068.jpg

The Completed Set

When you put the two rocket halves together and set the ship up vertically on the launchpad, you get a pretty impressive scene. The whole thing stands about 15.4 tall and over 8” wide! The rocket looks very sleek and cool. The launch tower is not bad either as it has some interesting details such as the fuel tanks, fueling arm, a satellite dish, an Overwatch logo, and a pipe going up its right side.

46475359681_798818119e.jpg 44658444590_7175cac228.jpg

For some reason the designers decided to use plates instead of roller coaster tracks on the back of the tower. Personally, I would have preferred the latter. The underside of the rocket looks kind of boring compared to the other side, but that's how it is in the game too. The rocket looks very lean and mean from the side.

31535570957_2f99d0821b.jpg 45751899144_3efb62c4a5.jpg

While the set is pretty big, it dwarfs in comparison to the setting from the game. Both the rocket and the launch tower are so massive in the game that it was difficult for me to get a good screenshot of the whole thing! The launchpad alone is so big that only heroes who can fly, teleport, or jump high can get onto it, so obviously the set is very underscaled, but with that in mind it looks pretty close to the source material. The tower could have been more accurate though. It needed to have a second fueling arm instead of the satellite dish and Overwatch logo, and it should have been taller than the rocket. The top of it also looks different.

45562392085_289ab30de0_c.jpg

The rocket on the other hand is about as close as they could have gotten it. It's pretty clear where the focus in the design process went.

45751965734_7a4c3ca130_c.jpg

Play Features

Even though the rocket and launchpad are just background objects that don't actually do anything in the game, the designers managed to fit a lot of play features into this set. The cockpit at the tip of the rocket can be opened to seat a minifig inside, although if you want to use Mercy or Pharah you will need to remove their wings to do so.

44658437200_78fec9cd36_c.jpg

Right behind that cockpit there is a laser cannon that can be popped out and aimed in many directions thanks to being mounted on Mixel joints. It's a bit difficult, however, to lift this section up without pulling some of the white curved slopes off.

45751894044_b1c5f1d77a_c.jpg

Behind the laser cannon is a small room with a control panel which I can only assume is the gunner station and which can be accessed by removing the windscreen on top of it. There is only barely enough space for a minifig to stand here, but again, you will need to take off Mercy and Pharah's wings if you want to put one of them here.

32602848078_8395a958ff_c.jpg

The cargo hold of the rocket can be opened up as well. As you can see in the back right corner, Winston has packed his favorite snack for the space trip, peanut butter and bananas. The left corner has some tanks which I assume are meant to be filled with oxygen.

46424431822_6a916a2e73_c.jpg

There is enough space here to put Winston inside, although he too will have to take off his jump pack to fit inside.

31535578397_69224af5c7_c.jpg

The two halves of the rockets are only connected by one Technic pin and a pair of clip hinges and can therefore be split apart. This connection is surprisingly effective as the rocket holds together quite well, but you don't need to use a lot of force to pull the halves apart. It's actually a very satisfying feeling to pop the front off and on. Splitting the rocket apart will reveal a thruster at the back of the front half and another pair of laser cannons next to the gunner station on the other half.

44658440440_2220425a57_c.jpg

Remember that last page of the instructions that said that this set can be combined with 75970? Well, below you can see a picture of the payload having reached the final checkpoint (Victory!) and one picture where it has been attached to the rocket via the four studs on the black pear-shaped part on the back of the rocket. It may not be the most secure connection, but it works well enough. The boarding ramp and fueling arm of the launch tower can be folded up, and now the rocket and drone are ready for liftoff!

46475355011_4e34c33a4a.jpg 44658439940_c2f70f3b4b.jpg

The satellite drone XR-9 looks pretty good on the rocket. Since it has the same color scheme and shape, it looks like it could be an extension of the rocket itself. It's like a space shuttle riding on the back of a rocket and they are very swooshable together.

44658439780_792c8549c4_c.jpg

Ratings

Design: 4/5 - The rocket looks great and is very accurate, and while the launch tower is detailed and recognizable enough, it has a few inaccuracies and feels a bit like an afterthought.

Build: 4/5 - A mostly standard build, but there are some interesting building techniques here and there.

Minifigs: 4/5 - 4 figs is not a lot, but you get one tank hero, one support hero, and two damage heroes and they all look very good aside from some printing flaws. Even Reaper comes with wraith form legs to make him exclusive to this set.

Playability: 5/5 - They put just about as many play features as they could into what was originally an immobile background object.

Parts: 5/5 - There are tons of new and rare parts in this set! If you're only interested in the Overwatch sets for the parts, this is the one to get. Teal brick separator. 'Nuff Said.

Price: 2/5 - 12.3 cents per piece is not a good value, especially considering how low the other Overwatch sets are priced, although it's kind of understandable with all the large parts and new molds.

Overall: 4/5 - I really wanted to give this a 5/5 based on how cool the rocket ship and the minifigs are, but it just feels a bit overpriced for the amount of parts and minifigs you get, and the launchpad could have been better. I'm also disappointed with Mercy's face printing and that the set description lied about her blaster. Still, I can highly recommend this set to any Overwatch or Space fan, especially if you're looking for some interesting new and rare parts!

That concludes my Overwatch review series. I think the first wave of this theme is very strong and I hope it will do well enough that we can get more sets in the future.

Good review! I'm impressed by the compatibility between the two sets, as well as the way the shuttle splits. It's nice that they managed to pack in so much playability despite the objects in the two sets largely serving as a backdrop for battles between characters in the game.

Looking forward to this set - I've never played overwatch, but I have 2 of these already ordered for parts and to add to my spacecraft lineup (you know, the Saturn V, the space shuttle, and this. Make sense together, right?) Thanks for the review!

Thanks for the review. I love the set but what I really need is a high quality version of this image - I've looked on your Flickr but didn't find anything. It looks incredible :classic:

Thanks for the excellent review, Oky! Knowing nothing about Overwatch myself, I appreciated all of your insight and learned a lot while enjoying the LEGO aspects as well.

I'm impressed by the amount of detail that LEGO put into all of the figures across the line, what with all the awesome new helmets and hair pieces. Still, it's frustrating that they can't get the printing right for light tones on black. Does LEGO just think that kids don't care? In theory everything is quality tested, so if all AFOLs notice every time that figures like Lady Iron Dragon and now Mercy look like sh*te, someone in LEGO would definitely know too and have consciously decided that it doesn't matter.

That aside, this set looks pretty cool. One of the nicer rockets and rocket towers that LEGO has done recently. I wonder what the reception will be from Overwatch fans though, as they'd be paying a lot for something that is just a big backdrop in the game.

Thanks for this review.  It's very thorough and very well-informed.  I know nothing of Overwatch, but I persuaded myself to buy the smallest and largest Overwatch sets over Black Friday for the sake of the spaceships, with the Christmas Box bringing the price-per-part ratio into an acceptable range.  I plan to order a bunch of astronaut minifigures to replace the Overwatch people, build a rover and crane to fit in the cargo bay, and buy some aircraft wheels to give the drone and the rocket some landing gear.  The stage separation and missile launcher in the front stage are decent play features, but I wish the designer had included a full interior instead.  It's really disappointing to see that the rear cockpit can only hold a standing figure.  Still, despite this set's many flaws, it should go well with my Space collection and with the Space wave of City that's rumored for summer release.

Man that Mercy face is a disaster

I think it looks even worse than the Lady Iron Dragon one

 

How come LEGO puts that on an official product. They look like knock-offs

 

Thanks for the review

I think this one might look a bit small next to those sets, but I'm glad you like it! :grin:

So this is a shoutout to the Halloween skins, right?  I thought Mercy was a witch, not a zombie?

Yes, the minifigs are all pretty great otherwise which makes it so much more disappointing to have this persistent printing issue.

I think Overwatch fans will just be happy to see locations from the game represented in Lego as I was, but we'll see how the set performs.

Thanks for this review.  It's very thorough and very well-informed.  I know nothing of Overwatch, but I persuaded myself to buy the smallest and largest Overwatch sets over Black Friday for the sake of the spaceships, with the Christmas Box bringing the price-per-part ratio into an acceptable range.  I plan to order a bunch of astronaut minifigures to replace the Overwatch people, build a rover and crane to fit in the cargo bay, and buy some aircraft wheels to give the drone and the rocket some landing gear.  The stage separation and missile launcher in the front stage are decent play features, but I wish the designer had included a full interior instead.  It's really disappointing to see that the rear cockpit can only hold a standing figure.  Still, despite this set's many flaws, it should go well with my Space collection and with the Space wave of City that's rumored for summer release.

Thanks. It's good to see that these sets appeal to non-Overwatch fans too and inspire them to create their own designs with them. And to be fair, your gripes about the interior are easily fixed as well.

But that's not all! We also get several new molds such as pair of 4x6 wedge plates in white and several pairs of 3x3 wedge slopes also in white. These seem like extremely useful parts and I hope to see a lot more of them in the future.

Could you please take a few standalone pictures of those new 3x3 wedge slopes? I've been waiting for a part like that for a very long time!!! :moar:

Man that Mercy face is just disgraceful. With the prices they're charging that just isn't on. 

Quite like the rocket, with bigger wings / more detail that could almost pass for it's own space set.

They are in that picture, above the tip of the brick separator. Do you need a different angle?

Some underside views would be great! :classic:

Sorry for the bad lighting, but I hope these answer your questions.

Can anyone think of a possible replacement face for Mercy? One that's actually flesh-coloured and doesn't have that disgraceful printing? My first thought is either Madame Hooch or Professor McGonagall's heads

Also, if anyone else is dissatisfied with Mercy's wings, I've designed my own brick-built solution. Once I have the set and a Mercy minifigure to pair the build with, I'll try to put up pictures (if the site will let me).

As I said in the Overwatch thread, they should have used a regular flesh head instead of a black one with a p`rinted face. The black piece of the neck isn't so noticeable in the original character:

I think what they did makes sense since the black part does cover over half of her head. They just didn’t do it well.

That Pharah figure looks amazing. Do you have a picture of the rocket combined with 75970?

Yes. There are a few at the end of the review.

Ah, you're right. It wasn't loading on my computer
