5 stars! "Oh my god! Where did you find these?! They're amazing!"
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.
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.
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!
The bookends are thick metal and heavy. The bottoms have a rubber-ish material that will prevent your books from skidding on a shelf. The angle of the bookends aren't exactly an L-shaped 90°, more like 88-89°. This is slightly annoying for those with OCD that want perfect 90° bookends, but it doesn't bother me, honestly, it doesn't, it doesn't bother me, at all.
You can have these bookends in the same room, or in different rooms like I have; the figure leaves the kitchen and ends up in the living room [see photos].
I wasn't sure these were worth the money at first, but it's well put together and made with durable materials, in a cute and attractive design, and it will keep your books in place. Recommended.
My one complaint, however, is that I feel like the product I received was not in fact brand new. The box it came it (which was sealed inside of the amazon shipping box) was dinged and a tad weathered. There were no seals, tape, or stickers binding the box shut. The stands were securely placed in a half-shell packaging inside the box, but weren't wrapped or sealed in anything, and the stands have a few very minor scuffs/dusty marks. I am giving this as a gift, so I am glad I inspected inside the box. I was able to clean off the dusty scuffs, but I don't feel like a product labelled "new" should have these types of flaws to begin with. I am under the impression that the model I got may have been on display somewhere, and they packaged it up to send to me.
Again, though, this was the only flaw with the product, and I feel it may have been the seller more than the product itself. Not a big enough deal for me to return it or file a complaint. Still a wonderful gift, and sure to please enthusiasts of the game.
These bookends show a traveller entering and exiting a portal, colored appropriately. They are not cheaply made -- a good weight with a long tongue, making these genuinely decent bookends as well as quite fun for Portal players.
