The Lego Horizon Forbidden West Tallneck, which is set number 76989, will release on May 22 for $79.99 and consist of 1222 bricks.
The set includes the Tallneck, as well as a Minifigure of Aloy, the protagonist from the Horizon games.
The set was first named on a German retailer in December.
Lego Model Designer Isaac Snyder: “I fell in love with Horizon Zero Dawn the first time I played it. It’s a futuristic world full of gorgeous scenery, strong characters, threatening machines, and a rich story.

“The Guerrilla designers were a huge inspiration and help in capturing the spirit of this universe in LEGO form. The Horizon fan community is so creative, and this model is dedicated to their passion and imagination.”
ORIGINAL STORY CONTINUES: Lego has increasingly turned to video games for recent sets. A Lego Sonic The Hedgehog set was released in January.
Lego has previously claimed that Lego Mario is one of its most popular modern themes. The theme includes the Mario course builder system, which allows players to create large Super Mario themed levels. A Super Mario 64 Question Mark Block set was released last year.
“When it comes to sequels that are significantly better than the original, a game that often comes to mind is Assassin’s Creed 2,” Middler wrote of Forbidden West.
“The jump from the first Assassin’s Creed to its sequel perfectly represents what a studio can do once it’s found its feet with the first instalment of a franchise – expanding on what worked, listening to what its players didn’t like, and taking advantage of not having to learn to walk at the same time.
“While Horizon Forbidden West just falls short of replacing Assassin’s Creed 2 in this analogy, it gets very close. With better combat, a compelling story and a jaw-droppingly beautiful world, it’s an improvement on the original in every way, even if it does hold on to a few open-world tropes that we could have left behind.”
