The Return Of The Real Portal Gun

Back on January 20th, 2009, Harrison Frix, of Volpin Props, created this outstanding real Portal Gun:[email protected]/sets/72157612758626401/

As you can imagine, when most Portal fans saw it, they lost control of their bowels.

It’s been close to 2 years since then, and what has the creator been up to?

Well, you’ll be somewhat… saddened to hear that Volpin Props has created another Portal Gun, with assistance from Replica Props and they will be auctioning it off at the Child’s Play charity dinner in Seattle, on December 7th.

Child’s Play is a charity founded in 2003 by the creators of Penny Arcade. This means all that money spent to securing a Portal Gun will go to giving sick children toys and games.

Along with the Portal Gun will be a custom base, signed by the guys at Valve themselves, and Harrison as well.

For a full log of how the thing got made, check out:


  1. Okay so we have a real Companion Cube, a real Cake and and now a real Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device,
    Now let’s build a real GLaDOS.

  2. God that thing is a work of art… and it’s going to charity as well.
