Blizzard has officially launched their new product line called Blizzard Collectibles. It is a line of premium statues, replicas, and artwork designed and produced directly by the company itself. To start off the Blizzard Collectibles line, Blizzard is introducing a brand new Overwatch statue, Widowmaker.
“One shot, one kill.” When Widowmaker was younger, she feared spiders. But after coldly assassinating her husband, she realized the truth: at the moment of the kill, spiders are never more alive. The Widowmaker statue measures 13.5" (34.29cm) from head to floor, and the base is 7.5" (19.05cm) in diameter.
For those who are wondering why this Widowmaker statue is the first product of Blizzard Collectibles, even though they have other products released like Tracer, Reaper and Illidan Statues, the reason is because previously Blizzard does not have a formal name on all of their high end products until now.
“We tend to go all-in when it comes to representing the things we're passionate about in our work, and that's exactly what we're doing with this new line of high-end statues, replicas, and artwork,” said Matthew Beecher, the vice president of global consumer products at Blizzard Entertainment. "Our goal with Blizzard Collectibles is to produce pieces of art that capture the personality of our games, and we're excited to share these premium items with gamers and collectors worldwide.”
The Widowmaker statue will retail for $150 and is available for pre-order from Blizzard’s website, however it is currently out of stock. But fret not as Blizzard has confirmed that it will be available again soon as "Blizzard Collectibles will generally be produced continuously. Products may sell out for a time, of course—check out the individual product pages for information on when the product will return." For those who have pre-ordered it, the statue will be delivered before the end of Quarter 3 of 2017 (September). Once it is shipped, you can check the arrival date info by logging in to your account on the Blizzard Gear Store website.
