Up, not North – Portal turret plushie

Up, not North – Portal turret plushie… Jon writes –

When I finally got around to playing Portal, I was a bit surprised at how much the Internet loved the companion cube. Sure, the cube is pretty great, but in my mind it pales in comparison to the turrets, the real scene-stealers of the game. In fact, they inspired a Veruca Salt-esque covetousness in me.

I wanted one.

Badly.

And, of course, it just wouldn’t be the same if it didn’t talk…

With the excitement of Portal 2 coming out, and in collaboration with Leigh Nunan, I finally was able to get my turret. Or, rather, to make it.

Nice tutorial!
