Two new heroes from Activision Blizzard’s Overwatch have been given the LEGO treatment in a two-set release.

Joining LEGO Overwatch sets are Wrecking Ball, piloted by fan favorite Hammond the hamster, Junkrat and Roadhog, with vehicles and details inspired by the Junkertown map from the game.

Figures of each character will included with the sets, including a mini Hammond hamster, regular minifigure recreation of Junkrat, and an oversized plastic figure replicating Roadhog’s beefy in-game presence.

The new sets will be showcased to the public for the first time at the Blizzard Entertainment booth (#140) during San Diego Comic-Con in July, before going on sale later this year in October.

These two licensed sets build on earlier releases in Overwatch LEGO collection. Previous sets feature other fan-favourite characters including Hanzo, Widowmaker, Genji, D.Va, Reinhardt and cyborg military operative Soldier 76.

In addition to revealing two new building sets, the LEGO Group announced it will also host a day-long Twitch Rivals Overwatch tournament on July 25 in which teams are battling for a special, as-yet-unknown prize.
