Wish you could have your own little turret from Portal 2 to have a love/hate relationship with? Wish that turret was at least a tiny bit cuddly to keep you company on lonely nights? Wish no more! The folks at ThinkGeek have a delectable turret plush available for purchase – if you’re able to get your hands on one that is. They’re unfortunately sold out for now. However, if you do order now, you might just be able to procure yourself one before Christmas time.
This Portal 2 turret plush doll is officially licensed, squeezable, and will deliver all the lines heard in the game, depending on the actions performed with it, whether you approach the plush or your push/knock the plush over. It even speaks when you ignore it!
It’s no secret Valve’s science-loving series – which surrounds the outtakes of the Apature Science facility – has spawned a great deal of fan films and devotion. Not to mention, it’s also a pretty darn good game. So, if you already got yourself a Weighted Companion Cube plush, why wouldn’t you want to have another piece of squishy Portal 2 technology around the house? What will your $29.99 turret plush do for you? Well…
Officially licensed Portal 2 Collectible
Talks just like a proper sentry turret
The glowing eye is how it says it loves you
Does not include working dual machine guns. Sorry.
The actions below will randomly result in the given quotes…
Your plush turret detects motion nearby:
- “Target acquired”
- “There you are”
- “I see you”
- “Preparing to dispense product”
Your plush turret is moved or knocked over:
- “Critical error”
- “Shutting down”
- “I don’t hate you”
- “Hey, hey, hey”
Your plush turret is ignored (times out after 30 seconds of inactivity):
- “Good bye”
- “Are you still there”
- “Target lost”
Whether or not you think this would make a great Christmas gift for a fellow nerd, or a nice little collectible for yourself, you will have to do some waiting until the item comes back into stock. Anything Portal related sees a lot of play within the gaming community, owing to the incredibly talented writing team behind the series who combine great comedy with an edge of uncomforting omnipresence.
Just in case you haven’t gotten enough Portal 2 in your life (who hasn’t?), there is also DLC available now for you to continue the adventure in the defunct and sadistic Apature Science labs.
Portal 2 is available now for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
