Artist Making His Own Awesome Overwatch Statues

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.

He’s made a few statues of Overwatch characters himself, and has recorded progress builds on his YouTube site (he also streams on Twitch) so you can see how they’re made.

Which makes for fantastic viewing, because these are done entirely by hand. There’s no 3D printing in sight, it’s 100% clay on wireframe.

Seriously though, Blizzard can made huge action figures of a few characters to promote overwatch but refuses to market ones people can actually own.

Even DoTA2 has some figuarts/figmas coming out.
