Lego Group and PlayStation team up on Lego Horizon Forbidden West set

Published on: 18th February 2022

It is the first Lego set inspired by the Horizon Forbidden West video game and includes Tallneck and Aloy.

The Lego Group is to launch, in conjunction with with PlayStation, its first set based on the video game Horizon Forbidden West. Working with acclaimed developer Guerrilla, the collaboration recreates the authentic features within the game for the Tallneck, the iconic machine which fierce machine hunter Aloy uses to explore nearby areas in her mission to restore order and balance in Horizon Forbidden West.

Designed as a build and display model, the 1,222-piece Lego Horizon Forbidden West Tallneck set includes a brand new headpiece for Aloy that comes with a choice of blue, yellow or red eyes and her bow and brick-built spear, alongside the authentic Tallneck machine, with a smooth, disc-shaped head and long slim legs to add striking features within the model. Fans can finish their build by adding the beautiful landscape details like the brick-built birch tree, tall grass and a rusty stoplight, completing the centrepiece.

“Getting to team up with Guerrilla was truly remarkable” said Lego Group designer Isaac Snyder. “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. 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 buildable Horizon Tallneck model measures over 34cm (13.5in) high, 23cm (9in) wide and 17cm (6.5in) deep and will be available from May 2022.
