    Geelong - The guy I got it off has 1 left if anyone wants it.
    I paid $180 which is a great price compared to $400-$500 on ebay

    Click, I'm curious. What is it?
    (And don't say "Derp, it's a Portal gun" I KNOW that...) but does it have a second real-world function as well or is it purely cosmetic? (like, is it a light for example?)
    If not, it strikes me it could be easily modded!

    Either way, it's v. cool.

    PS: That's a v. cool bookend on the left, too. I presume the orange one is on the other side?

    Hey mate
    The gun lights up and can turn blue and orange.
    Also it has sound effects when you press the button.

    He had 1 left
    If you want it I can buy it and send it to you but I don't know how much postage would be. Let me know and I will ring him

    Oh, yes please! I'll fix you up for price and postage if it's $180 for the unit

    She says:

    Maybe you are happy with your purchase. I'm just glad you found a friend.

    Take some time to acquaint yourself with the devices use. Not to much time, as we have much testing to do.

    Kewl. That'd be great. I have a birthday coming up and I was amazed when the Missus not only gave permission to spend money frivolously, but said she'd buy it for me! :eek:
