MANILA (UPDATED) - At long last, reigning Mobile Legends: Bang Bang world champs Blacklist International's M3 Estes skin has finally been revealed. 

The game's developers, Moonton Games and the Tier One-backed organization revealed the skin design for the team's signature hero in the "Blacklist Protocol" fan event held at Mall of Asia Music Hall Saturday. 

The skin's animation shows the Moon Elf doing captain Johnmar "OhmyV33nus" Villaluna's signature crown pose, donning the team's signature colors. 

"The moment you've all been waiting for. Introducing the Blacklist M3 Championship Estes Skin," Blacklist said with the hashtag #OhMyEstes. 

The championship skin, called "Estes Blacklist International" is set to hit ML:BB's stores soon.

Blacklist won the world championship against fellow Pinoys Onic Philippines last December 20, and aside from the lion's share of the tournament's prize pool, the team also won the power to pick the hero for their championship skin. 

At the time, they chose Estes, the catalyst to their title-winning "Ultimate Bonding Experience" strategy. 

Following the championship, the local ML:BB community trended the #WeWantEstes hashtag, as Blacklist's players alleged that the developers declined their request have Estes wear the championship skin. 

Moonton, who said the hero selection was "not decisive yet" announced on Christmas eve that it was proceeding with the team's request. 

"All your wishes have been heard. Merry Estes Everyone! To our beloved gamers, Estes is the chosen champion M3 skin. We have heard your voices, and we will proceed with Blacklist International's choice," they said in a statement.
