As a Lego fan (I blame my son for this), I was thrilled beyond reasoning when I came across this Lego Portal 2 set. “Say it is for real”, I cried to the heavens but then realized it was on Cuusoo. For those unfamiliar with Cuusoo, it is a place where you can offer the Lego company ideas for upcoming sets. You create a project submit it, get supporters and if your set is chosen for production they give 1% of the total net sales of the product. I have seen a few sets go by on that site, that just made me flat out drool. (A Minecraft set is coming soon) but the Portal 2 must be made a reality, it just must.
It would come with three minifigures, Chell, Wheatley, and the famous potato. The set would feature a battle platform, portal gun, and GLaDOS, Modular Testing Chamber and even a Portal Puzzle Board Game. Designed by Team Jigsaw, a four man operation consisting of Lego enthusiasts. It was “originally assembled in 2011 to compete in a massive month-long MOCing competition, testing our steel against the most tempered foils in the Lego building racket.”
So far, it has 3,699 supporters and is in need of more (Feel free to drop by the site and show some love). Hope this becomes reality so I can start building with Portals.
As the companion cube would say…
We remind you that the Companion Cube cannot speak. In the event that the Companion Cube does speak, the Enrichment Center urges you to disregard its advice. Also, we suggest you go to http://lego.cuusoo.com/ideas/view/18258 to support this product.
