    Lego Overwatch 2019 - Rumors & Discussion

    Built Hanzo Vs Genji and Dorado Showdown today. The builds are good for what they are, the minifigures however are not. Lego really needs to fix this problem with printing skin tones on dark colours, both Hanzo's torso piece and Soldier: 76's head (where the silver colour also suffers) look terrible. Such a shame as I was really looking forward to these sets.

    LEGO Overwatch - Wishlists and Future Speculation

    I've been waiting for a wishlisting topic for Overwatch. For general speculation, I think we'll definitely see the Orca Dropship and a Junkertown set soon. I would also like to see more sets based off the cinematics and the lore such as the Talon vehicles shown in Alive and Retribution and some Talon troopers to go with them. Aside from that, here are some of my set ideas: Battle in Numbani (sort of based of the Doomfist origin trailer) Primal Rage Winston, Tracer, Doomfist Payload with space for Doomfist’s gauntlet, Numbani scenery Volskaya Industries (based of the 'Infiltration' cinematic) Reaper, Sombra, Zarya, Katya Volskaya, Mech Pilot Syvatogor Mech, Mech Bay Rescue from Route 66 (based of the 'Reunion' cinematic) Mcree, Echo, Ashe, Bob Route 66 Diner and Payload, Ashe’s Bike Rialto Talon Headquarters Doomfist (formal), Moira, Maximilien, Talon Troopers x2, Mcree, Genji Talon HQ with council room (possibly other rooms not seen in the map such as a laboratory for Moira), Rialto Payload That's all for now, I might add some more ideas later on.

    Why do I get the feeling that Nya will be sidelined yet again in this wave? Can't really tell if there are any season 10 sets, or which sets will be the villain focussed ones yet. Since legacy was pretty much all ninja vehicles, I hoped this wave would take a step back in that regard, doesn't look like that's the case though. I hope that I'm proved wrong when we see pictures, but this list doesn't seem all that promising.
  4. I thought that I might just point out that Brickset lists a 'Batvehicle D2C' in there database for 2019, set 76139.

    I personally think that there will be a mix of season 10 and 11 sets in the summer.

    I might as well give my thoughts now that most of the sets have been revealed. I really like most of these, the only one I'm thinking of passing on right now is the Blade Cycle and Snowmobile set. Spinners haven't really been an interest of mine recently, but I may get the Lloyd and Garmadon one just to try them out. Samurai Mech: Very cute redesign, I would love to see more mechs done at this scale. Minifigs are great aswell, although I wish the skeleton boot piece could have been used for Kruncha and Nuckal. Golden Dragon: As someone who hates the old 2 piece heads, I think that the new head is a good improvement as it feels to scale with the rest of the dragon, which looks decent. The minifigs are the stand outs here. I've always liked the designs of the stone warriors and the new Overlord figure is fantastic. Storm Fighter: I never bought the original, and this looks like a big step up. It is a lot more substantial in my opinion. Earth Driller: Similar to the storm fighter, I think that the new driller has much more substance to it than the original, and it's great to finally get the giant stone warrior. (Interesting that they put Kozu on the box for the 'featured in season 2' logo, but he doesn't appear in either season 2 set). Monastery: Good to see that this version actually looks like how it does in the show, a pretty good set overall. (I wonder if the chicken is some sort of reference to The Master short?) Ultra Dragon: Looks a bit messy on the box, but looking more closely I think it's definitely still an improvement over the original. I don't really mind that some of the figures are repeats of other sets. An interesting wave overall, since it is becoming apparent that these sets aren't tied to the current story (well, at least not directly), I wonder if we could see more legacy sets in the future, especially since theses are only based off the first two seasons. I could see one or two legacy sets released along side the sets of future waves, for instance. That being said, I'm curious a to when we will get sets for the TV movie, since it is being released in the first half of the year, and the second half of the year sets will probably be season 10.

    Considering the scale of the character, I think the best option would be (as others have said) to give Reinhardt a nexo knights style mech suit; or at least use the battle suit body piece as the core of the build. I never liked the idea of him being an axl-fig because it would make him way to small (especially if they ever make a big-fig Roadhog) in comparison to other characters.

    I would say that for me, most of the essential characters have already been teased. That includes Tracer, Winston, Reinhardt and Soldier 76 for the 'good' characters. For villains, we already know about Widowmaker, but I would also expect Reaper to show up in the first wave, being (I think) the most prominent villainous character.

    This isn't one of the six January sets for next year, which will most likely include the minifigures that have already been teased.

    Lego Overwatch 2019 - Rumors & Discussion

    I think I might as well chime in to this topic now that the first set has been revealed. I recently got into Overwatch shortly after the initial announcement for the Lego sets and have been having a great time playing the game, having never cared for FPS games before. Although, I must admit, I'd rather see the sets based around the story over the gameplay itself. As for the Bastion set, I quite like it. If anything, it should have used a sticker on a grey 1x1 tile for the front of the head to approximate the eye slot, but the rest of the model looks fairly accurate for the scale. It is also worth noting that there is a gap of about 10 set numbers between the largest set of the six in the January wave and this Bastion set, so I wonder if we will see more sets for other heroes at this scale, possibly all as Blizzard exclusives?

    As long as it is able to connect to Ninjago City and Ninjago City Docks, I'll be happy.
  12. I don't think I have commented in this topic before, but I'd just like to say that the new Sandman minifigure looks amazing. Great reuse of the Nexo Knights Rogul leg piece, never thought we'd see it used outside of that theme.

    The new designs look decent, perhaps a little simplistic, but I do like how they seem to combine design elements from the DX and rebooted suits. I'm not really a fan of Nya's colours going back to dark red since it's not one that is associated with water. Hopefully it's just for this one wave, since I'm pretty sure that these sets will have no relevance to the current story, and they switch back to gunmetal for subsequent releases.

    I suspect Penkid is right. This concept art for the show shows the mech being about three minifigures or so tall (about 11cm). Pixal's mech from this year is a little taller, being 4 minifigs (just over 15cm) tall, up to the top of her helmet. 150 pieces would make the new mech smaller than Pixal's mech (around 200 pieces) so it may well end up being a show accurate size.

    Wherever it was from, does that mean that there is no icemobile set at all or might it have a different set number?
