So will they keep producing these until they run out of cake? Or until VALVE makes a copyright claim?

I'm sure Valve gets its cake from this.

Also, is that cheap plastic I spy? Cave Johnson wouldn't be pleased.

Rubbish

"...it could be used to startle any burglars into leaving a rather smelly DNA depositary behind as they dash for the window in which they entered."

Not only is this a horribly-formed sentence, but 'depositary' is an incorrect spelling of the wrong word.

Since airport security theatre is all geared up to confiscate devices that look like a gun, I wonder what they would do with this "gun".

As you pass through the Airpor Unauthorised Item Emancipation Grid, your Apeture Science Handheld Portal Device may be emancipated. Aperture Science would like to apologise for the incovenience this may cuase to your continued testing.

Google Translate FTW

The page translation is fun, but the page title even better:

"Beans torpedo head office: Store Figures - / Neka system portal / portal device Prop Replica (s) and / or game"

One for the lawyers...

So what legal steps are required to lawfully make and sell replicas of fictional objects like this? Would you need some kind of license / written agreement from Valve or can anyone do this?

Time to get my mind out the gutter

Reading the Headline and subheading I thought this was some new Glory Hole fetish and the Reg had forgotten the NSFW tag. Opening the article and seeing the picture I was still going with the NSFW.

I'm leaving. The coat with the tissues in the pocket... thanks.
