Official Portal Gun Replicas Available For Preorder

While nowhere near as impressive as some of the fan-made ones we've seen, this officially licensed full-scale Portal gun replica is now available for preorder from Hobby Search for around $170. It lights up orange and blue but is otherwise ENTIRELY NON-FUNCTIONAL. What a ripoff. Per terribly translated product description:

Beautiful woven ─ ─ curve, the mobile device space of a dream


- Puzzle action game masterpiece of VALVE, [PORTAL]! There is no guy does not start,
"Cancer incidence portal" is "Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device" thing, Prop rainy day
Appearance is made to the replica!
- Intact during the game, the mobile device space of a dream that brings together the technology's science aperture
Fully reproduced. Light blue and orange is equipped with the gimmick of course.
Can enjoy the beautiful design of unique products VALVE, fan is a must-see item.
THE CAKE IS A LIE!

Granted for $170 I don't expect a fully operational Portal gun, but I do expect something that can at least create SOME size of Portal. Even something big enough to throw action figures through would be cool. You know, take playtime to a whole new level.

Hit the jump for the gun glowing blue and a link to the product page.

Thanks to ChaosLex, who prefers to create portals the old fashioned way: with a case of Redbull and his fists.

    ...rather have officially licensed copies half life 3 for preorder than this placating garbage. the developer is a lie, hl3 or GTFO...

  • Well, I know what I want for my birthday this year. <3

  • Emmitt Morgans

    I'm surprised by the relatively low price for such an awesome replica... considering a micron-thick 14k gold-plated replica of the Golden Gun costs north of $400 this is a GREAT deal!

    I might actually pre-order... (EDIT: Dammit, it looks like "reservation closed")

  • wow if only the import tax wasn't gonna be high :P

  • philipechung

    Did anyone else read the product description...?

  • Arias J. Aune

    No I lost brain cells trying to read the description...

  • You mean the part about the "curve, the mobile device space of a dream" or "Cancer incidence portal"?

  • Maybe, if it came with a Potato....

  • There is a build your own PotaDos kit somewhere online. I've seen it before.

  • Emmitt Morgans

     It's on ThinkGeek... and it's "PotatOS"... sheesh, get it right! ;)

  • emmitt   buzz kill much ??  sheeeeeeeesh

  • Emmitt Morgans

    Buzz kill?  How so!?  I helped anyone interested in buying such an item easily find a website from which they could purchase said item.

    As for correctly naming that "form" of GlaDOS as PotatOS:  I used a winky emoticon at the end... so deal with it.

  • Zequi

    You'll need:
    1-One potasto
    2-One GLaDOS

  • it makes some sound effects and lights up and HAS to be powered  separately  like by a potato

  • Emmitt Morgans

    If you're talking about the PotatOS irl, it has to be powered separately *apart* from the potato... it needs batteries.  It also has to have the circuit completed between the gator clips, but not necessarily by a potato.

    I don't know if that's what you were going for, but it's most decidedly not what you typed.

  • note what i said...

    'powered seperately like by a potato'  missed out a comma after seperately......

    sheesh...

  • Emmitt Morgans

    It still requires a battery; that was my main point.

    Potatoes don't actually create much elecricity...

  • Matt Michael

    Play time is fun time.

  • genki much ?

  • The Cake is a Spy!

    Murder time fun time >:D
