Journey to the 31st century and battle dangerous machines in the post-apocalyptic American west. Sound familiar? Horizon Forbidden West is the upcoming video game sequel to Horizon Zero Dawn, a PlayStation game from 2017. The sequel comes out on February 18, 2022. Now, fans can really break out the party streamers because the LEGO® Group just announced an 18+ set based on the same game. The Horizon Forbidden West Tallneck comes out in May 2022.
The official press release describes the set as follows:
This LEGO® set for adults will take builders into an adventure world through Aloy, a fierce machine hunter and the Tallneck, the iconic and awe-inspiring machine Aloy uses to explore nearby areas in her mission to restore order and balance in Horizon Forbidden West. Included in this set is a brand-new headpiece for Aloy, the Watcher machine 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 centerpiece for its display moment.

Truthfully, I looked at this set and my first thought was: “What is that?” However, after a little research, I’m intrigued. Who doesn’t like a good post-apocalyptic world story? Plus, this set includes a new Minifigure hairpiece! I can also appreciate the design of the Tallneck. The design looks great and probably provides an interesting build.
