San Diego Comic-Con is less than a month away, and as we've come to expect LEGO will have a presence there. In advance of the show, TLG is announcing two new sets based on Overwatch in their continued partnership with Blizzard Entertainment. 75976 Wrecking Ball and 75977 Junkrat & Roadhog take more iconic characters from the game and convert them into LEGO form, with interesting designs and a bevy of new pieces (like orange Hordika necks!). LEGO is also going to be hosting a Twitch Rivals Overwatch tournament on July 25th and providing a special prize for the winner! You'll be able to see the sets at SDCC and buy them in October, but if you can't wait until then, check out the high-res images and read all about the next wave right now!
