LEGO Portal Figures Are Not Lies, Just Not Official
May 1st, 2011
The Portal gun allows the user to travel within a world, but if Aperture Science tweaked it so users could cross over to the world of LEGO, here’s what the characters might look like. Flickr user Catsy[CSF] made a custom Chell minifig, complete with Portal gun and jump boots:
Catsy culled parts from a Brickarms Bazooka and MG42, as well as a TLC motorcycle helmet to make the Portal gun. I don’t know where the prongs and the gun’s grip came from though. Chell is still a work in progress, particularly with the paint job, but the jump boots are nicely done, simple but effective.
So that’s that for the heroine, but what about the arguably more famous villain? Fret not GLaDOS fans, Catsy’s got one for you too:
I’m assuming Catsy has a sizable LEGO collection, but even then finding the appropriate pieces to make GLaDOS must have taken quite a while. On to the newcomers – here are custom LEGO figures of Atlas and P-Body, courtesy of Legohaulic:
Awesome job on the details and the postures. Finally, here’s the Portal turret in various colors, from Flickr user L D M:

Hats off to all the builders. All these custom creations already look great, but imagine how much better they would be if LEGO and Valve came out with official figures. Do it!
