Cool Videos: Valve gets a present from WETA of the Portal kind

I thought fans of the Portal series might like this one.

Last week at Valve headquarters, the company received an interesting crate in the mail from WETA. WETA as you know has done the effects for LOTR, THE HOBBIT, RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES, and several others. So when you get a package from them, you know whatever is inside is going to be something amazing. Indeed it was.

What did they get? Perhaps a new guard...

"On September 13th, 2012, Valve received another mysterious crate from WETA Workshop. Inside was a full-scale, articulated Portal turret, complete with a motion sensor. Once again, WETA Workshop's gone far, far beyond our expectations to deliver something truly amazing. Thank you, WETA Workshop!"

If you find a cool movie-related video online that you think other readers would appreciate, please email us the link/info at coolvideos@joblo.com.

Extra Tidbit: And unlike the Portal Gun, you can't get a turret. Actually, you can't get a gun unless ThinkGeek decides to sell them again.

that's sweet, but why did WETA create this for Valve?

Duh! Effective advertising for if Valve finally gets the balls to do a Half Life or Portal movie. They just sealed the deal with that little item right there.
