Horizon Forbidden West Moderoid Thunderjaw plastic model kit

One of the most awesome aspects of the Horizon series is its mecha dinosaurs, and Good Smile Company just made a new plastic model kit featuring one of the most iconic available for pre-order.

The Thunderjaw plastic model kit from Good Smile's Moderoid brand can be reserved on the Japanese manufacturer's local shop or the American one, priced respectively at 9,800 yen and $70.99. 

The release window is December 2023 for Japan and Q1 2024 for the US. 

Here's what you can expect from this impressive model kit:


  • The model stands at 380mm in length when assembled, making it one of the largest MODEROID plastic models to date.
  • The body of the Thunderjaw, densely packed with mechanical detail, has been faithfully captured in model kit form.
  • The model features several points of articulation, including drawer joints in the neck and tail which allow for swinging motions.
  • The Thunderjaw's signature weapons—its disc launchers and mouth laser—have been carefully created with highly detailed modeling.
  • The band parts that connect its body to the cannons on the sides of its head are made with PVC material.
  • The model can also be displayed in a partially destroyed state by removing some parts of the head, body and tail.
  • In order to support the gigantic body of the model, pre-assembled ratchet joints are used at the hip joints.
  • Water-slide decals are included. 

To celebrate the opening of pre-orders,. we also get a trailer showcasing this giant in all its glory. You can watch it below.

Horizon Forbidden West is currently available for PS5 and PS4. If you'd like to learn more about the game, you can read our review and that of its expansion, Burning Shores

We recently learned that the game has sold over 8.4 million copies. If you're wondering why, our Tyler Chancey praised its "impressive, imaginative open world design" and defined it "a more confident sequel building on what made its predecessor great."
