Fears of that Portal Gun replica gun being on infinite hold are hopefully vanished to infinity! Starting today, collectible toy maker NECA is kicking off pre-orders for its replica Aperture Science Handheld Portable Device.
So far, the following retailers have "approved allotments" that they will receive at the end of next month: Rockin Robot, Think Geek, Corner Store Comics, and Toynk. In the UK, it's available through Play.com.
The 1:1 scale Portal gun is limited to 5,000 pieces and priced at US$139.99.
At the time of writing, pre-orders were already closed at Rockin Robot and Think Geek. Corner Store Comics, Toynk, and Play.com still seemed to have units available for pre-order -- though, expect that to change quickly.
According to NECA, a few other sites will carry the gun. Those will be announced within the next week. Moreover, a select number of brick and mortar retailers will carry the replica once it goes on sale.
NECA is asking customers to notify it directly if the Aperture Science Handheld Portable Device is either "scalped" or "bundled" with other items. More in the link below.
