Blizzard Reveals Collectible Version Of Mei's Levitating Snowball

Blizzard announced via tweet a new Snowball collectible, and, get this, it magnetically levitates! The personality-laden floating robot that helps Mei to produce her chilly attacks in Overwatch will be coming in the holiday season.

Mei’s weather-modification drone has been reproduced with authentic detail and features an LCD display to convey its every mood. While it can’t produce a blizzard, it could make for a cool desk companion. There is a limit to how many you can pre-order and it will set you back $175. 

Snowball isn't the only new collectible ready for Blizzard shelves. Just last week, they revealed the Ultimate Genji Sword. This 46-inch replica of Genji’s ultimate dragonblade will also be shipping out for the holidays this year. Overwatch also tweeted a trailer for their unreleased Lego set featuring Tracer. Though the set was announced back in August, it still has no definitive release date.

You can pre-order your very own levitating Snowball today and Blizzard’s shop states it will ship by December 15 for the holidays. If in-game loot is more your style, the Overwatch's Halloween Terror event is starting next Tuesday and is sure to have some creepy new content.
