Thinkgeek Portal 2 turret is a semi-autonomous death-ray for the 99%

Everyone knows Portal 2 toys are delightful – but as those of us who sometimes open our wallets to see a little cartoon moth fly out can attest, living under the constant protection of futuristic security-bots can be a bit pricey. Thankfully, our continued monitoring of the “Portal toys for real folks” market has finally yielded this tres accessible sentry turret.

Thinkgeek is letting these 40” turrets go for $24.95 apiece, which is less money than you'd expect to pay for a version made entirely of ones and zeroes. Admittedly, the latter purchase (that is, of Portal 2 itself) would come with all manner of Wheatlies and Propulsion Gels and whatever-else-have-you... but this one will float if you throw it in a pool, and is just waiting for you to do ingenious and appropriately frivolous things with it.

Warning: if you actually set this turret to guard your real possessions, frankly you deserve to be worrying about whether $25 is too much to pay for a piece of inflatable Aperture Science magic.

    $25 is still a little bit ridiculous. I would buy the game again before buying this.

    Okay I can't resist mentioning: Portal 2 is on sale on Steam right this very moment for $10. That is, it's 50% off its normal price of...$20. This is cute and all, nothing against it, but I find it amusing that an amazing award winning game at full price costs less than an inflatable piece of plastic related to it. Keep on being awesome Valve.

    Awesome. I'll totally buy one if I ever have a bigger room, but right now I don't have anywhere to put it, unfortunately.
