While we’ve featured several Portal turrets in the past, this version by Will Page (Haystack Hair) is one of the most accurate Lego renditions and even features opening side panels for the guns. Now I really can’t wait for Portal 2 to come out.

I might have passed up this turret gun from Valve’s Portal as, well, just another Portal turret if I hadn’t read L.D.M.‘s description: “This image is completely unedited.” Wait, what? That’s a real laser beam, made visible by a humidifier: Well played.
Arkov continues his series of Orange Box LEGO creations with Dog from Half-Life 2: Why yes, it is Miniland scale.
It appears we’ve found another Valve fan in Arkov, whose Turret from Portal captures the whimsically terrifying nature of these nasty little robots. If you were looking at an Aperture Science Military Android from this angle, there would be blood on the wall behind you. Just sayin’.
Zombie Apocafest 2009 has come and gone. The undead have been blown up, shot up, and mulched to oblivion. The humans stand victorious among the ruins of their civilization. Fortunately, that civilization was, by good fortune, built from LEGO, and it can be rebuilt, brick by little plastic brick. Check out the full gallery of Continue reading →
Ever wonder what the game Portal would look like in LEGO with a Steampunk twist? Arkov shows us what he thinks. Check out the nifty steampunk turret. Are you still there?
I promise, we are not in fact contractually obligated to blog all Portal or Valve-inspired LEGO creations. But this Spontaneous Portal Generator Prototype II (aka Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device) by Neaku (also on Flickr) definitely caught my eye: Via BioniBlog, where Ean has a nice overview of the latest Bionicle Building Contest over at Continue reading →
“This chamber has been replaced with a live fire course designed for military androids. The Enrichment Center apologizes for the inconvenience and wishes you the best of luck.”
I am admittedly a Valve fanboy, and I especially love Portal, the acclaimed puzzle game originally bundled with The Orange Box. When I saw this vignette my Mister_007 featuring one of those child-like (and lethal) turrets, I had to blog it immediately. And remember, the turrets don’t hate you.
ORRANGE has been playing Half-Life 2. There are lots of details to check out in this diorama, including several custom minifigs (note Gordon Freeman himself and the poor dude parasitized by a headcrab).
…but I think we’re legally obligated at this point to blog all LEGO creations inspired by Valve’s Portal. Victor Vitale‘s contribution to the genre includes the best Portal gun yet: Previous Portal love on The Brothers Brick: Our previous statement suggesting that we would not monitor this chamber was an outright fabrication. The Weighted Companion Continue reading →
Zombie Apocafest 2008 just wrapped up at BrickCon, and I spent about an hour taking pictures. Front and center in the display was Ryan Wood‘s beautiful watchtower: Josh, Nannan, and I awarded “Best Zombified Building” to Paul Hetherington‘s “Casa Baron”: Paul’s building has a full interior, including comfy chairs and a working elevator. We loved Continue reading →
Our previous statement suggesting that we would not monitor this chamber was an outright fabrication.
Harrison sends Chell through a series of tests in this vignette inspired by Portal:
We were certainly impressed with Brendan Mauro’s Team Fortress 2 minifigs, but Steve Barker rightly says of his Sentry gun (also inspired by Team Fortress 2), “I think I am more proud of this MOC [my own creation] than any of my others so far.” Justifiably so, Steve, justifiably so! Via Kotaku, with a hat Continue reading →
Adrian Florea replicates the “Jalopy” car from Half Life 2, which has the appearance of a partially built and customized 1969 Dodge Charger. Take some time to absorb all the gutted details, especially in the hood area. The model seems to feature a working steering system as well.
Since I’m running an older Mac here at home (too old to dual-boot or run VPC), my knowledge of Portal is limited — and reinterpreted — by the many LEGO creations the game has inspired. Nevertheless, I recognize a good Weighted Companion Cube when I see one. Le’pena uses mainly Technic and Bionicle pieces to Continue reading →
