For reference my fiance bought the P-Body gun from another retailer earlier. It arrived in a box with shoddy packaging (Messy tape) and when opened chunks of the styrofoam were missing. Not exactly what you'd expect from a $130 collectable. In fact the Box arrived completely scuffed up as well.

Initially I thought the retailer had sold us a used item and we were obviously upset over that. The retailer was pretty uncooperative overall so we assumed they clearly didn't know what they were doing (which is probably still the case). In fact they told us that we should file claim with the shipper even though it was obvious the problem was at the source.

Anyway, fast forward a month or so, I get my ore-ordered atlas gun from amazon. Amazon did a good job packaging it in a larger box. However once I opened it what I found was a clearly damaged box (similar to the p-body gun box my fiance received). The tape was messy and pieces of styrofoam were missing. At this point it's clear to me that NECA is at fault and is somehow allowed to sell subpar packaged items as "collectables"
At the price they charge, you would expect better. So basically for all you looking for one of these, a used one is probably as good as a new one in terms of the conditioning on these.

Update:
Been trying to get a response from NECA but they seem to refuse to respond to the issue. I'm done with them. I don't plan on supporting a company that so blatantly disrespects their customers.

Cancelled the other $300 worth of merch I had pre-ordered from them for halloween. Hope it was worth it for them.

NECA reproduced a faithful replica of the portal gun with sounds and lights. Granted this is the third round of the same prop, buts its still good quality. Not designed for heavy use, but a superb display item, particularly if you buy the related stand. If you are die hard Portal fan, this is a must have, just don't pay over $140. The packaging for this item was completely intact and all foam was undamaged. Amazon requires a signature for this item, so be aware that someone will need to present when UPS delivers. I would easily buy this item again.

This is a highly detailed replica of the Portal gun used in the video games. It's incredibly fun to hold in your hands and engage the trigger hearing tell-tale sounds of firing a portal. However with all this fun comes responsibility. The plastic isn't the strongest, so I would suggest being extremely careful with it and use this as more of a display piece then something to run around with.

I bought one of the pbody one of these, it came broken. A large piece inside rattles around clearly removed from the housing. I send it back to NECA, receive a replacement that was clearly used, scratched, etc.

I think, ok, I'll buy the third version from Amazon so I can send it back if there are problems. Holy crap, they sent me an Atlus gun with the same exact problem as the first pbody version I sent back months ago.

I give up. It looks like, but it clearly isn't durable as I've had horrid luck. Hate it. Won't buy another NECA item from now on.

I bought this for my girlfriend for our anniversary. She's a huge Portal fan, and she absolutely loves this Portal gun. The box and packaging is completely intact, and as far as I can tell, there is nothing broken on it, the sound works perfectly, and all the lights are functional. I think the other people just had bad luck with theirs, so I just wanted to let people who were interested in this project that there isn't a problem with the product I received, just some people have had bad luck.

I was pleased when Valve released three versions. A snafu prevented me from purchasing the first unit (from another nameless seller TG), but I was successful buying both the Co-op Peabody and Atlas via Amazon.

Most, if not all, box's from the first Gun are not in pristine condition, due shippers sending them out without a protective second shipping box. This will deplete the collectors price down the road. Fortunately, both my guns were shipped by Amazon in separate shipping box's, leaving the value of the box intact. All of the box's were sealed with tape, by the manufacturer, (although, sloppily) to prevent theft. Thus the standard will not affect the collectors quality, since all of them were sent out this way.

Now on to quality of product. Both of them came undamaged and in great condition. However, my Co-Op Peabody gun has a notably louder sound quality than the Atlas Gun, which is muted in comparison. Something I'm sure NECA should have tested prior to packaging. Except for the sound quality in my Atlas Gun, which diminishes this collectors item dramatically, NECA did a decent job designing the Portal Gun. However, in all the hustle and bustle of getting this item out and on the market, in my opinion, NECA dropped the ball when it came to their own rule preventing buyers from making multiple purchases to reduce hoarding and scalping. Checking ebay I've seen the same sellers with multiple units, hiking the price to ridiculous prices. I recommend you don't pay those inflated prices, they demand.

If you really need to have a Portal Gun, be careful to inquire about the sound quality or box damage, and don't pay too much, you may end up with a dud with no recourse, even if unopened.

A very detailed product and a must have for Portal fans. Received this in perfect condition, double boxed and well padded. The sound and lighting effects were very nice, loud and quite accurate to the game. It's nicely weighted, so it doesn't feel overly plasticky and cheap - the three arms on the front end come with red LEDs, so when you shine it against the wall, it creates a nice effect, especially with the blue/purple colour when activated.

All in all, a very well made product - no complaints at all!
