After years of licensing third parties to create expensive statues and replicas based on its hit video game properties, Blizzard’s taking high-end collectibles in house. Blizzard Collectibles kicks off with an array of existing pieces, joined by one hell of a rendition of Overwatch’s spidery sniper.
Overwatch Fantasia is a project by some Korean artists to take Blizzard’s roster of Heroes and make them look like they walked out of something like a Final Fantasy artbook.
Boss Fight Props, normally in the business of making cosplay gear, decided to take his Switch controller and dress it up like a GameCube pad.

I’ve been playing Nintendo’s latest free mobile game, Fire Emblem Heroes, for the last few days, and I’m struck by how subtly sexual it is.
We rarely think about the role food plays in our favorite TV shows or movies, but damned if it hasn’t been crucial. But what would Ghostbusters be without Twinkies? Twin Peaks without pie? Goonies without Baby Ruth? Pixar without Pizza Planet? One artist has decided to celebrate this crucial link in a very unique way.
The result is, well, awesome.
Blizzard is doing a terrible job at getting us official Overwatch figures and statues. Until they sort that out, there are artists like Mankej doing good work in their stead.
Collectible statue makers First 4 Figures are branching off into the gaming replica business, starting with a stunning 25-inch replica of The Legend of Zelda’s Majora’s Mask, complete with conveniently removable horns.
