Horizon Forbidden West hasn’t been released yet but here is a first LEGO derivative product. This new set to be assembled using your little hands represents one of the machines in the game, a Grand-Cou.
LEGO and the video game, it seems set to be a beautiful love story and an alliance that could pay off big, except for the PEL of the buyers. An idyll started with Mario and Sonic sets, while waiting for Overwatch.
Horizon Forbidden West: make your Grand-Cou to display in your living room
The rumor was right, PlayStation and LEGO were secretly preparing a construction exploiting the Guerrilla Games franchise. The first LEGO set (76989) scheduled for release May 1, 2022 at the price of 79.99€ will be a machine found in Horizon Zero Dawn and Horizon Forbidden West, the Great-Neck. And casually, it’s a beautiful baby.
The beast measures over 13” (34cm) high, 9” (23cm) wide and 6” (17cm) deep. Easier to house and cheaper than a Millennium Falcon. This Great-Neck of 1222 pieces will sit on a stand that includes a brick birch tree, tall grass and a rusty traffic light, with a vine wrapped around it. And as always, you will have miniatures, here Aloy and a Watcher.
It’s not the Regalla Edition, but it may be a consolation prize for those who have had their Horizon Forbidden West collector canceled. If successful, it is very likely that the collaboration between PlayStation and LEGO will not stop there, especially since the Horizon series has a shovelful of robotic creatures in stock. A Stormjaw, a Watchman… the choice is very wide.
Ah and according to another rumor, a LEGO Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End set exceeding 1000 pieces is already in the pipeline with figurines of Nathan, Sully and Elena, the replica of the jeep and a cave. Two elements of the game.
Do LEGOs that use video game licenses sound like a good idea to you? At this price, will you fall for the Grand-Cou from Horizon Forbidden West?
