Found these on Amazon by a random search and quickly purchased them for a Portal-loving boyfriend who was delighted to receive them. I'll go through with a numbered review to divide information for you!

INITIAL REACTION:
5 stars! "Oh my god! Where did you find these?! They're amazing!"

DESIGN:
5 stars! Unmistakably a piece of "Portal" memorabilia. Great concept, good choice of color. These pieces look great just sitting out, acting like bookends on any geek's shelf.

CONSTRUCTION:
2 stars. They hold books just like they should...but their construction is not quite as durable as I expected. The thinner metal won't hold anything more than stacks of paperbacks. If you're planning on using them with heavier books, choose something else...or you'll need to double up with a pair of flat metal bookends (like the type you can purchase from WalMart or Staples). Otherwise, these pieces tend to warp and bend.

VALUE:
3.5 stars. Because of their slightly flimsy construction, I don't feel that they were worth $26.00. I would have paid up to $20 for them, mostly for the design.

Hope this review helps you make a more informed decision!

Cave Johnson, here.

I'll be frank: bankruptcy sucks. We're having to cut corners where we can. In fact, all our testing facilities are being built inside spheres because we can't afford right angles. Also helps keep the bums from sleeping in the the aisles, so, bonus!

Anyway, we're liquidating a bunch our office supplies here at Aperture to raise money. Caroline talked me into it, and I thought, What the hell! Coca-Cola can make billions on their swag, why can't we!

Turns out someone down in Purchasing ordered a whole cargo-load of these bookends. He's been fired. But now we've got roomfuls of these babies ready to decorate your office and hold up your books, which frees up your hands to buy more of our stuff! They're made of sturdy aluminum, science, and love. Mostly aluminum.

Next up, Aperture Science Bake Sale! Caroline's got a great cake recipe she's uploaded into our database. Let me know if you'd like some. We're selling that, too.

Cave Johnson, C.E.O.

I bought these for my son, who is 25 and a gamer. He doesn't usually buy products or gimmicky items relating to games, however, and so I wasn't sure about these. When I showed him the picture online he spent a minute looking at them and pronounced them "cool" and said that would be nice to have. That is high praise. So I ordered them for Christmas and they look great. Definitely a novelty item, they were nevertheless securely packaged and strong enough to actually hold up books. Nice quality. Highly recommended.

Wife bought these for me. I loved them, until the 1st one broke in 2 months and a year later the other one did. Basically - that black metal you see on the bottoms of the bookends is mounted on two pegs to the aluminum blue and orange portals. So if those pegs break - they no longer hold books. Soooo - no superglue or anything, no extra stabilization, no extra pegs. Just two pegs that break on the weight of anything more than paperback novels.

My art books are fairly heavy and thats how I broke the first one. I had 7 200 page books between it and a side of the cabinet. The two pegs broke and books spilled everywhere. The second just broke of normal small paperback use after a year or so.

My wife bought these directly from Thinkgeek at the time.

I bought these to go in my gaming room where I use them to hold up video games. They work very well as book ends and seem like good build quiality.

I ordered this on Christmas day and it arrived two days later which I was really happy about. I brought it up to where I was going to set it up and started getting the books I was going to hold together with it. I lightly pulled up on one of the pieces (the "blue" portal piece) and it came up off of the metal base. I thought it was detachable, at first, but when I looked again I realized it just snapped off the base without any real force. I'm using super glue to hold it together, but there isn't an excuse for how it broke so easily.

Must have for any portal fan! Great design and very sturdy. Came neatly packaged from thinkgeek.com, a website worth checking out if this is your kind of thing.

Bought these for my boyfriend video games (instead on books). They look awesome and are exactly as described. He loves them! He said "they're way better then those fancy schmancy book ends you usually see in older peoples homes"
