Unveiled today, the LEGO Horizon Forbidden West Tallneck is a 1,222-piece set that recreates the authentic features within the Horizon Forbidden West video game, bringing builders to a post-apocalyptic 31st-century setting.
Designed as a build-and-display model for adults, this LEGO set will take fans into an adventure world through fierce machine hunter Aloy, together with her iconic and awe-inspiring machine called Tallneck, which she uses to explore nearby areas in her mission to restore order and balance in Horizon Forbidden West.
The LEGO set features a buildable version of Tallneck, which has a smooth, disc-shaped head and long slim legs. It also includes an Aloy minifigure with a bow and brick-built spear and a brand-new headpiece. There’s also a Watcher machine figure that comes with a choice of blue, yellow, or red eyes. Adding more details to the LEGO set is its beautiful landscape consisting of a brick-built birch tree, tall grasses, and a rusty stoplight.
“Getting to team up with Guerrilla was truly remarkable” said LEGO designer Isaac Snyder in a press release. “The Guerrilla team is incredibly passionate about the world of Horizon Forbidden West and were a huge help in ensuring we were able to create an authentic representation in LEGO form. Thanks to our close collaboration we were able to include references to all the most iconic aspects of Horizon Forbidden West, from incredible machines, mysterious ruins, unique tribes, and stunning scenery.”
Snyder continued: “There is a huge amount of mutual respect between the design teams and everyone involved was beyond excited to see this model come to life! Our hope is that everyone building this model has as much fun as we did designing it.”
The LEGO Horizon Forbidden West Tallneck measures over 13.5 inches high, 9 inches wide, and 6.5 inches deep, and will be available from May 2022 on LEGO.com, LEGO brand retail stores, and major retailers globally for $79.99.
