Another surprise addition to the LEGO lineup and one that’ll slot right into their relatively new Gaming theme is LEGO Horizon Forbidden West Tallneck (76989)!
Collaborating with development studio Guerrilla, the robotic Tallneck creature comes from the hit PlayStation exclusive Horizon: Zero Dawn, also it’ll tie in nicely with the second installment of the game which is due to hit Ps4 & Ps5 18th February 2022.
As mentioned above the set focuses on one of the largest creatures in the game the Tallneck (above). The set will stand 34cm tall once fully constructed and stand proud upon a base the is 23cm in diameter, quite a respectable size for a LEGO set.
If the giant robotic Dinosaur doesn’t interest you then the Minifigure sure will, especially fans of the game itself. The main protagonist, Aloy, is recreated perfectly in LEGO form which also includes her weapon of choice, the Spear.
If you look close enough you’ll also see a small two-legged Raptor like creature, a also know as a Watcher. If you’ve played the game you’ll know these are pesky Human sized robots that search and hunt out Aloy.
LEGO Horizon Forbidden West Tallneck (76989) will stomp into Certified LEGO Stores and LEGO.com this May and retail for £69.99 (79.99€/79.99 USD/129.99 AUD/99.99 CAD)
Let us know below what you think of this new Gaming addition to the LEGO family, I personally cannot wait as I throughly enjoyed the game.
