Despite a brief scare last week
, NECA's replica Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device is still on its way to virtual store shelves, albeit in fairly limited quantities. Think Geek's listing
for the gun has gone up with an estimated availability date of May 18, although pre-orders do not appear to be part of the plan.
Instead, interested enthusiasts register to receive an email notification once the Portal gun goes on sale; from there it's first come, first serve. NECA has only manufactured 5,000 of the $140 replicas, and considering that Portal 2
sold three million copies
in its first two months on the market, we expect demand to be fairly high. Remember when you learned about sharing in kindergarden? This is why.
