Despite the fans' anticipation, little was heard from Blizzard up until about a week ago, when the American developer released LEGO mini-trailers, transforming Overwatch's playable characters into buildable LEGO sets.

Lego Omnic Bastion is now available to order from the Blizzard Gear Store for $25 (or £22.50).

Bastion is one of the most beloved characters in Overwatch, so it makes sense that the first LEGO set for the game would let fans build their very own brick version of the well-known Omnic.

Stock prices plummet amid tech selloff, rising interest rates
Intel dipped 3.76 percent today but that might be viewed lightly when you look at team Red and team Green's day on the market. The two-year yield rose to 2.88 percent from 2.87 percent, and the 30-year yield climbed to 3.38 percent from 3.37 percent.

It's pretty small: the set has just 182 pieces, so this is not an ultra-detailed rendition of Bastion by any means. This Overwatch toy can swivel at the waist, move its arms and features a small sub machine gun in the right arm. The product description even states it is "only available in limited quantities". In-game, the Epic skin turns Bastion orange and turns his bird companion, Ganymede, red instead of its normal yellow color. The Omnic Bastion LEGO figure is 4 inches tall, which is nearly three times bigger than a standard LEGO toy. How limited the "limited quantities" are also remains a mystery.

There will probably be more product announcements during BlizzCon 2018 at the beginning of November, but we'll have to wait and see if that includes any new Overwatch LEGO sets.
