Blizzard has been steadily releasing Overwatch character statues since the game’s release last year. Last time, Tracer was the one to get the statue treatment. Today, Blizzard announced that everyone’s favorite mech pilot, D.Va will be next.
The video on the Overwatch Youtube channel tells us that the statue is hand-painted and quite a bit larger than the other statues available at 19inches tall when you include the base. It accurately portrays both Hana and her mech in her original skin (though a junker D.Va would be great!) right down to the sponsors on the mech itself.
D.Va, real name Hana Song, is a South Korean professional gamer who enlisted in the MEKA program to keep her home safe from the war waging in the Overwatch universe. She is a young, competitive, and admittedly sassy girl who plays the role of a tank in-game.
Going back to the statue, the majority of the closeups we’ve seen are rather impressive. There are some bits of the face, like D.va’s eyes, that seem a bit off, but faces are obviously difficult to paint. And since each model is hand-painted, every statue will come out just a little bit differently.
The hero’s hair, jumpsuit, and headset are all basically perfect in terms of recreation, and the mech looks to be just as incredible. It is clear that extreme love and care goes into all of the Overwatch hero statues. From Reaper to Widowmaker, the characters have depth and personality even in statue form.
If you’re interested in preordering a D.Va statue, then head on over to the Gear section of the Blizzard website and do just that. The statue will set you back a whopping $450 USD plus shipping and if you want to buy two, well, you can! If $450 is a bit too much for you, I recommend checking out the D.Va Funko Pop! Vinyl Figure. It’s much cheaper and still adorable!
