Huge Overwatch Action Figures Are Showing Up Around the World [UPDATE]

Hollywood, Paris, and South Korea are now the homes to giant Overwatch figures, still in the box.


[UPDATE] Pictures of Pharah's oversized action figure have appeared online. Twitter user Osevno posted a picture of the rocket launcher-wielding character here. The original story follows:

Blizzard Entertainment has erected huge Overwatch action figures in destinations around the world. The larger-than-life, toy-like statues come in the box and can be found in Hollywood and Paris, France. Busan, South Korea, will host one of its own later today.

The promotional figures come in the form of Tracer, Genji, and Pharah. Twitter user Bluejacket was on the scene in Hollywood and took some pictures and video of the Tracer statue. The box features Tracer, her guns, and descriptions of her in-game abilities. It also has a "Try Me" button that plays sound, though Bluejacket said it was muffled. You can check it out in the video below or live right here.

It seems that each location gets one of the figures. Pictures of the Genji statue in Paris have popped up on Reddit, but according to a tweet from the Overwatch Twitter account, Pharah will be set up at 8 PM PT in Busan today. We'll update this article as pictures appear online.

The aforementioned tweet was originally believed by fans as a tease for new heroes, though the Overwatch Twitter account debunked that.

Bluejacket also tweeted out pictures of an Overwatch Loot Box, which contained a bottle of Coke. It's not clear if this is part of the Overwatch toy-like statue promotion. We've reached out to him and will update this article when we hear more.

Overwatch launches on May 24 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. You can find out exactly when you can play the shooter here. Though the official release date is May 24, though retailers will sell it on May 23, so you can install it and be ready for when the game goes live.
