    I used to play a bit of Overwatch racking up a couple of hundred hours. I am not sure how successful it really is as a franchise, apart from having a stellar launch, although I would not say it is currently a “dead game” either.

    Personally I assume that this is perhaps a far more niche product than Lego realises. I think they may have been conned into thinking it is bigger than it really is due to the enormity of Blizzard and the initial success of the game. It is commonly thought of being in the same vein as other Blizzard franchises such as StarCraft or Warcraft, however, it does not have anywhere near the depth (and therefore longevity?) or community enthusiasm as these. Ultimately the game was Blizzard’s mediocre answer to Valve’s classic franchise Team Fortress.

    I have to say though, that the sets look fantastic and are priced pretty well too. I am amazed by how well the designers have captured the aesthetic and characterisation of the game. I hope that they do well as I can see the talent that has gone into creating them. I am not going to pick any up myself though.

    The Overwatch kits look good and I reckon the mecha-based ones will sell. But they’re also too expensive in AUD for the number of parts in each.
