Overwatch: Year of the Rooster - New Skins

Blizzard has released a new video for the Year of the Rooster patch of Overwatch, which went live yesterday!
As with any event, all of this new loot is available for a limited time. Here are the new skins for 13 of the characters.
D.Va's new Palaquin Skin (Legendary)

Tracer's new Rose Skin (Epic)

As far as the legendary skins go, I think Zenyatta and D.Va got the best ones, but if luck isn't on your side any legendary will set you back 3000 credits. For the price of 750 credits you can nab any of the epic skins. For those skins, Tracer has an awesome pattern on her leg, and Junkrat looks right at home with all of the fireworks attached to his vest. There are other goodies as well, including some highlight intros for Tracer and Mercy, and various emotes and victory poses for others. Each character gets a unique spray too.

In addition to all of these goodies, Blizzard finally added a Capture the Flag Rooster mode to the Arcade. If it is popular enough, hopefully it will stick around beyond this event and expand to even more maps. 

You can nab any of these goodies through loot boxes, which can be gained by leveling up or through an in-game purchase. Each loot box will have at least one Year of the Rooster item out of the four items each box drops, while the other items can come from the standard loot tables. The event runs until February 13th.
