    Overwatch 2019 - Rumors & Discussion

    Picked up both of the new sets today. Junkrat and Roadhog is great, love the bike build and the figs are insanely detailed. But wow, Wrecking Ball might be one of my favourite sets ever. So much detail packed into such a cheap set. Hammond himself is perfect and I love the small feature that lets you lower him down into the mech for ball mode. Really hoping the line continues somehow next year.

    Jang put up his review of the Wrecking Ball set. I think this is the best Overwatch set yet to be honest. It folds up into ball mode really well and I love the little feature where Hammond can lower down into the mech. Can't wait to pick this one up next week!

    So a new in-game event just started in Overwatch where you can unlock a LEGO inspired skin for Bastion! Pretty cool little collaboration between LEGO and Blizzard.

    Overwatch 2019 - Rumors & Discussion

    I agree, I don't think big sets like Watchpoint Gibraltar were ever going to sell well. LEGO should've focused on small sets like Tracer vs Widowmaker and Hanzo vs Genji, as well as mid sized display piece sets like Bastion and D.Va. Individual figure packs would be amazing but I don't see them ever doing that. I really want to wait and see if @Puresh has anything else to say about the theme's future, but I do think Overwatch 2 could have something to do with it. I also think that Harry Potter could have something to do with it, because with the 4 sets coming in 2020, the Harry Potter set numbers will have caught up with the first wave of Overwatch sets. Just an observation, not sure what effect that would have on Overwatch.

    You've been reliable in the past, so as much as I hate to say it, I trust you and your source on this one. However I did notice that little hint in your original message about the sets being cancelled but the line itself not being over. Care to elaborate/give any hints as to what that could mean?

    The current rumors are that the sequel will be a more story focused, player vs. everyone type game. That way the current game can continue with its live competitive multiplayer service at the same time. Again this is all just rumors and I could be completely off base here.

    So I had a thought, Overwatch 2 is heavily rumored at the moment and could be revealed at Blizzcon this November. If the rumors are true, do you guys think LEGO could be keeping the theme alive for now to see if it gets a boost in popularity when the sequel is announced/released?

    If we do end up getting the 2020 sets, I'd put money on at least Torb appearing in the Omnic Titan set. In other news, FalconFan hinted on his Instagram yesterday that Overwatch may not be cancelled yet, take from that what you will.

    I definitely think we could get pretty much all the remaining characters over these 8 sets, but it also depends on how many repeat characters LEGO does. The first two waves went well with Reaper being the only repeat, but I definitely see another Tracer, Genji and maybe McCree popping up elsewhere. Like you said though, we can make pretty educated guesses on who might be included in these four sets: 75978 - obviously Orisa and Efi, but do you think Doomfist could be included her too? Or would that be way too generous of LEGO? 75979 - Lucio seems like a safe bet, and I'd put Symmetra here too since the two of them have a rivalry and LEGO seems to be sticking to the official lore pretty well. 75980 - as you said Torb seems like a good fit here, maybe with Brig and a minifig-scale Bastion? 75981 - we're still missing Doomfist, Moira, Sombra and Sigma from Talon, I'd bet this one includes two of them, maybe a repeat of Widowmaker and maybe a new hero. Those four alone would bring our hero tally up to 22-24, so the remaining few could definitely fit into the final 4 sets. PLEASE LEGO DON'T CANCEL THIS THEME.

    Overwatch 2019 - Rumors & Discussion

    So I just stumbled onto an article on stonewars.de that lists all the known 2020 LEGO sets and it has some new details on the possible 2020 Overwatch sets. I know there are a lot of rumors about the theme being cancelled but here's what the article says: 75978 - Orisa & Efi 75979 - Rio Battle (Could either be Rialto or Rio de Janiero with Lucio probably) 75980 - Omnic Titan 75981 - Talon Jet 75982 & 75983 don't have names In addition to those 6 sets, they also list 75984 and 75985, which could mean we'll see a similar release schedule to 2019 with 6 sets at the beginning of the year and 2 in the fall. Again, I know it's possible the theme is cancelled but I REALLY hope it's not because these sound awesome.

    I agree, it’s going to be a long few months waiting for confirmation of the themes fate. Even if the rumoured 6 sets aren’t part of the initial winter 2020 releases, I’ll probably hold out hope until summer 2020 since the two Junkertown sets came out so late into this year.

    Looks like the two fall (and final?) Overwatch sets are listed on LEGO Shop. Pretty great prices if you ask me, at least in Canada. Looking forward to picking them up.
  13. I guess. I just figured if the bike, truck and helicopter sets were all Endgame based that LEGO would've spread the stones out a bit instead of lumping them all into one set. Although with the helicopter including the nano gauntlet it does make sense for that set to come with the remaining stones.
  14. I think the biggest hint that the sets are going to be comic-based is that the Hulk helicopter set comes with all 4 Infinity stones that weren’t in the compound. If the other sets were Endgame-based the stones would probably be spread out over the multiple sets. I would’ve loved more Endgame sets but honestly with Rescue coming in the helicopter the only figure I REALLY wanted from Endgame was an updated Wasp. More comic sets in 2020 will be a nice change of pace before 2021 sees MCU sets taking the vast majority of spots again.

    Damn, disappointing. So close to getting more sets, if only this theme had started a year or two earlier. Thanks again for all the info today, saves us from having to play the waiting game.
