If you ask us, Overwatch was one of the finest video game experiences to hit shelves last year, and it doesn't look like it's going to lose much steam any time soon. The fandom behind the game is strong, and players who love physical collectibles are really going to enjoy the latest offering from Japanese toymaker Good Smile Company, who have a super cute Tracer figure available for pre-order (via Polygon).
The company has signed a deal with Blizzard to create figurines based on the Overwatch characters, and the first product of that partnership is this mini Classic Skin Edition Tracer, part of their Nendoroid series that stands at about 100cm (a hair under 4 inches). It's made from painted ABS and PVC plastics, and comes with its own clear plastic stand, as the figure can't balance itself on its own. The main figure comes with interchangeable parts, like different hairstyles, alternate poseable legs, and different hands to accommodate her different weapons, like the Pulse Pistols and Pulse Bomb.
The figure is available for pre-order right here, right now until March 30, at a cost of ¥4,900 (about $43). You'll have a bit of a wait, though, since the figure is only set to release in August. If that stresses you out, we think that firing up Overwatch is a fantastic way to relax.
Check out a more detailed look at the figure in the video below, pre-order one for yourself here, and let us know which character figure you want to get your hands on next.
But why does Widowmaker have blue skin, though?
