UPDATE – Since publishing this post, several details have changed. Please refer to the approved list of Portal replica retailers and stay tuned to our blog for further announcements.
Rumours about us making this absolutely awesome replica have been around since we announced our partnership with Valve last year, and quite honestly, we’re happy to finally announce its release.
But news leaked last week that the life-size Portal gun replica that we’re making would cost approximately $208 and that pre-orders were already available.
First, we’d like to thank those who have already shown interest in pre-ordering it. You guys are awesome, and we have even better news for you – we’re estimating MSRP for the replica in the U.S. at a lower price. The $208 price is if you plan to order it from Japan (not including shipping).
Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device
Chell’s weapon of choice, accurately named Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device, should start to appear in your favorite toy stores around April. We’re only making 5000 replicas, so this is a very limited run. You can expect them to sell out very quickly.
Here are some more details:
- Dimensions: 30″ in length
- Support: the replica rests fine on flat surfaces and does not ship with a base or stand.
- Features: both orange and blue LED lights and unique sounds that correspond to each color.
- Sounds: The lovely “portal-creating” sound we’ve become used to
A 3 way switch allows you to select blue, orange or off and when you pull the trigger you activate the “firing” and sound. It requires 3 “C” batteries, not included.
