Wowee does this thing look awesome! Horizon Zero Dawn is a favorite among the staff here, and I think it’s safe to say when we heard rumors about this set we were cautiously optimistic. But now that has LEGO officially announced 76989 Horizon Forbidden West: Tallneck, I think our fears can be laid to rest because this set looks gorgeous. Before we move on to the pictures and other commentary, I want to point out that the title has a colon in it, Horizon Zero Dawn colon Tallneck. Maybe this is wishful thinking but maybe perhaps there are more sets on the horizon? (No pun intended). I would love to see a Horizon Zero Dawn colon Thunderjaw!
This is what the platform up top looks like.
It has a nice oval-shaped display base.
It even comes with a brickbuilt Watcher creature! It’s like a two-fer! I like how they shone a red LED light on the eye to fake the glow. Tricky LEGO is tricky.
Wondering what it looks like on a shelf? This should give you an idea:
If there was one thing I had to nitpick on is the lack of handholds for Aloy to grab onto. Also, we need a better picture of the Aloy minifigure! Come on, LEGO! This is the best I can do:
Aloy Minifigure from 76989 Horizon Forbidden West: Tallneck
You can see she’s sporting her Focus ear piece. It looks like it’s molded onto her hairpiece. No doubt that is the one proprietary element that won’t ever see the light of day in any other theme outside of Horizon Forbidden West.
