Japanese Portal Gun Looks Just like the Real (Virtual) Thing

by Shane McGlaun

The last time we talked about a replica gun from Portal, the thing was made by the bad-ass video game weapon replica maker Harrison Krix from Volpin Props. I don’t even want to think about how expensive that handmade piece of awesome would cost. Another full-size 1:1 scale replica of that portal opening weapon has turned up for pre-order in Japan, and the thing is actually affordable.


This life-size replica of the official Aperture Science Handheld Portal gun comes from Japanese replica manufacturer Neca. The official price in Japan is ¥16,000 and you can pre-order it right now for shipment this April. If you convert the price to US dollars, your very own replica of the Portal gun would cost you just a bit more than $200 – plus shipping and any extra costs for importing it.


Being a replica, it won’t open a portal for you to hop through, but it will change colors between blue or orange depending on the portal you want to pretend to open.

I don’t know if they will ship one of these to the US, so you might want to start being extra nice to any friends you have that might live in Japan, or get in touch with White Rabbit Express to see if they can order one for you. I want one of these really bad, any of you Japanese folks want to volunteer to ship me one?
