The best Portal prop ever

- September 20th, 2012

I longed for the ThinkGeek.com inflatable Portal turret. I pined for the $375 Portal gun prop sold at Fan Expo Canada. But this… this is the greatest piece of Portal love ever conceived. And by the folks at New Zealand-based effects studio WETA Worksop, no less, who sent it to the headquarters of Portal creators Valve Software.

Makes you wonder, though… why would WETA, the folks who have done effects work on The Lord of the Rings, Avatar and dozens of other films, devote so much time and energy into making a functional Portal prop? There can only be one explanation: A PORTAL MOVIE IS IN THE WORKS! With WETA doing the props and digital effects!

OK, probably not. But we can dream. Sleep mode activated.
