Hasbro, the company behind popular Transformers, G.I. Joe and My Little Pony toylines, announced that they will be making action figures based Blizzard Entertainment’s Overwatch. The figures, known as “Ultimates” will stand six inches tall and will be highly articulated. The company’s first figure to be revealed was Mercy at BlizzCon 2018.
If the cards are played right, Hasbro could drop the entire line at the New York Toy Fair on February 16. Their recent Instagram post shows the silhouette of a familiar ‘cheeky’ Brit.
