The oversized Overwatch build is just the start of what LEGO has planned for its tie-in with Blizzard's addictive online shooter.

More details about Ashe, the new Overwatch Hero character has been revealed, including her abilities.

The second character revealed was not given a gameplay trailer, nor did she show off any combat abilities in the cinematic. In it he meets up with his old compadres, the Deadlock Gang, led by Elizabeth Caledonia Ashe. In addition to her main firearm, Ashe also has access to a stick of dynamite and a small shotgun that can cause massive pushback to both herself and her enemies.

Synagogue shooting suspect Robert Bowers pleads not guilty
The suspect, identified as Robert Bowers , killed 11 congregants and injured four police officers, authorities said. Herring tweeted that prosecutors are still weighing whether to charge Bowers with domestic terrorism.

At the "Overwatch: What's Next" panel, game developers said Bob was almost a hero unto himself and joked that Ashe is hero 29, but Bob is hero 29.5. Finally, her ultimate, Bob, summons her hulking mechanical sidekick "who charges forward and knocks enemies into the air, then lays down suppressing fire with his arm cannons".

"Ashe quickly fires her rifle from the hip or uses her weapon's aim-down sights to line up a high damage shot". Blizzard hasn't announced a release date for Ashe yet, but expect her to roll out within the next couple months.

Those lucky few at BlizzCon are getting the chance to try out the newest Overwatch hero, Ashe, before everyone else, so of course, emongg had to try her as well. McCree gets the better of her in the animated short, but you can bet Ashe won't let that stand.
