Valve Portal Turret Replica Not a Lie, Not for Sale Either.

We finally have more details on the extremely faithful Portal turret replica that Valve showed off last week. It turns out that it was commissioned by Valve from Weta Workshop, the award-winning special effects, design and prop makers known for their work in The Lord of the Rings.

The replica even came in a crate marked with Aperture Science Labs’ logo, adding to its slick presentation and pants-wetting geekiness. Aside from the light-up eye, sound effects and the protracting guns, Valve also mentioned that the turret is indeed life-sized and has a motion sensor.

Some of you may remember that this is not the first time that Weta Workshop made a replica for Valve; they also made the replica of the Team Fortress 2 Sentry Gun that now guards the entrance to Valve’s headquarters. While you may never have a chance to own these one-offs, Weta is selling licensed Valve collectibles based on DOTA 2.
