You Can Help Make This Lego Portal 2 Set A Real Thing

Cuusoo, a Japanese partner studio to the LEGO Group, has designs and concept art of a Portal 2 set that could be heading to a store in your neck of the woods. That is, as long as it gets enough community votes to get out the concept stage.

G4TV‘s The Feed appropriately describes Cuusoo as a “Kickstarter” for the LEGO brand, where community supported sets can get made into real products.

As shown in the official “idea” page for the Portal 2 Lego set, a retail version of this concept would include companion cubes, alternate versions of Chell, some adorable Turrets, and a very cool-looking LEGO build of GLaDOS.

From the team behind the project:

This project was put together by four Lego enthusiasts. This group (known as Team Jigsaw) was originally assembled in 2011 to compete in a massive month-long MOCing competition, testing our steel against the most tempered foils in the Lego building racket. In 2011 twenty-one teams brawled in the MocAthalon, and our team finished in Third place. In 2012 thirty-nine teams strove in Lego conflict, and our team came in Second place. Suffice to say we can plot a line graph and are optimistic for 2013.

Currently, the conceptual pitch has over 3000 backers and a list of parts for three main sets: GLaDOS’ Chamber, the Modular Testing Chamber, and a board game room. Head on over to the project’s Flickr page and take a look, for science.
