    Now the question is when will DX9 release a weathered and more subdued version?

    I like that not-Bastion is relatively in-scale with GSC's Figma Tracer.

    Based on the measurements given:
    • [Bastion]
      • Freeman's height: 7.28" (18.5 cm)
      • Bastion's in-game height: 2.2 m >>> 7'3" (or 7.25 feet)
    • [Tracer]
      • Figma Tracer's height: 5.5" (~14 cm)
      • Tracer's in-game height: 1.62 m >>> 5'4" (or 5.33 feet)

    When they first teased him they had him next to Figma Bruce Lee. He's a fairly average sized figma so they clearly put some thought in to making sure he looked good next to deluxe-ish anime figures which any official overwatch toys would most likely be scaled to. So their gamble has paid off he's gonna work incredibly well next to Tracer in December and Genji next year.

    Hope the rumor that Widow and Dva will get done also is true. Reinheart, Roadhog, Winston, Arisa and Dva's mech probably the other Overwatch characters figma will never do given their size. Really really need a toy of Dvas mech if she gets made. And DX9 could easily do that for her figma if it happens. Fuck that'd be so cool.

    I could definitely see DX9 doing a Reinhardt if they really wanted to. He's basically a giant hammer-and-shield-wielding robot when he has his helmet on.

    I really hope we'll eventually get a Figma Mercy...

    With Bastion covered, Pharah and Reinhardt are at the top of my OW wants list from any company. Think I'm in the minority in that I just hate Dva, lol.

    This is pretty cool. Not too familiar with the game but I could see getting a couple of these as Shockwave Cybertron Defense Drones from G1 Seasons 1-2 if the price is right. Don't really look like the drones but would be a cool stand-in.

    Geez his articulation is crazy good. Everything that looks like a joint basically is a joint, wonderful. Hope the tolerances are nice n sturdy on the final, bout the only thing that might bring down this amazing looking figure.

    Looks excellent. I would have preferred they drop the treads and cannon to lower the price but I guess they can just stay in the box. Really looking forward to this yet cautiously prepared for irritation as they wait a few months and announce a much better redeco like Null Sector.
    I'd love for them to tackle Orisa next.

    Or have included a single, non-articulated torso block so you can make the cannon and Bastion at the same time. Because I agree, it's a bit of a kick in the shin. Not awful, just annoying.

    a lot of needless banter between these 2 reviewers...the last 20mins are completely off topic. yeesh. anyway's here the key points:

    - a lot larger than expected, probably to keep in size with the official DVA figure.
    - Improved materials and build quality compared to DX9's own carry and tyrant
    - a lot of diecast in the waist, legs, back.
    - no barrel rotation available for the sentry mode gun, it's one molded piece.
    - joint connection for the legs/thread are a new design, strong and solid connection without being difficult to remove.

    The reviewers suggest that more 3rd parties move out of the transformers market and onto other toys. One of them suggests for DX9 to make their own DVA with fully removable clothes.

    holy SHIT! Why did I not know about this guy until now?! I want this guy so badly!!

    I love that he comes with Ganymede too. I started Overwatch as a Bastion player so this really brings me back.

    Man, I really want this but I wish he was a tad bit cheaper. I got Figma Tracer on pre-order so an Overwatch display would be nice. Maybe I'll wait to see how many other characters get made into figures.

    Looking at all the pics again the only thing I wish that could've been done is lowering the body a bit more in tank mode. The toy makes it look like a Metal Slug, which is much, much too high of a profile that Bastion actually has.

    Still, I'm goddamn psyched for this. Certainly getting this when it comes out.
