Horizon Forbidden West’s Thunderjaw Will Have a Moderoid Model Kit

Horizon Forbidden West Thunderjaw Moderoid

Thunderjaw, the dinosaur-like machine from the Horizon series, will have a plastic model kit. Good Smile Company revealed a painted prototype of the Thunderjaw Moderoid kit at New York Comic Con 2022.

Moderoid is a series of plastic model kits from Good Smile Company, which is best known for its Nendoroid and Figma action figures. The company has previously worked on Moderoids of the three Magic Knights from Magic Knight Rayearth and the Divine Knight Valimar from The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel.

Since the Thunderjaw will appear as a plastic model kit, people can expect to reproduce the machine by assembling parts from the package’s runners. They can also opt to customize the kit further by repainting it or adding weathering effects. However, Good Smile Company has yet to announce a release window for the Thunderjaw Moderoid as of this writing.

While the company listed Horizon Forbidden West as the title where Thunderjaw comes from, the machine made its debut in the series’ first entry, Horizon Zero Dawn. The Thunderjaw was also the large enemy that series protagonist Aloy had to fight in Zero Dawn‘s reveal trailer in E3 2015.

The Horizon Forbidden West video game is available on PlayStation 5 and 4. A title update in June 2022 added a New Game Plus mode and Ultra Hard difficulty level.
