The cake might be a lie, but this 1/1 scale Portal gun looks as real as one can get without being able to shoot holes in walls.

This Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device is priced at ¥16,000 (US$208). It's from Neca, the famed replica and prop maker.

Back in July 2011, Kotaku reported that Neca was working on official Valve action figures as well as a replica gun.

Pre-orders started online this week in Japan for an April release.

DISCUSSION

I know I'm gonna sound like a buzzkill for saying this, but $208 is a lot for a prop that doesn't really do anything. It's like the dude I used to know who bought a full-sized replica of the Buster Sword from Final Fantasy VII and...mounted it on his wall because it's too big to do anything with. I mean, at least he was already married so at least it wasn't a massive girl-repelling magnet, but still.

I just feel like stuff like this is cooler in THEORY than it is in practice, you know?
