#12: Portal 2 - Chell


With the news that NECA had a deal with Valve to make figures based on their games, my most immediate wish was for Portal figures. Left 4 Dead, Half-Life, and Team Fortress figures made it out first, but now Chell, the heroine of the Portal games is finally out. Atlas and P-body are scheduled to come out later, and I'm hoping there will be a GLaDOS released somehow. It was worth the wait, because Chell is up to the usual high standards from NECA. In case you were ignoring the packaging, you would know that this is Chell from Portal 2 rather than the first because she is wearing the long fall boots, and her Aperture Science Enrichment Facility jumpsuit is half off and tied around her waist. In game, you only really get to see Chell when she's going through a portal that is in your line of sight, which usually means a side or rear view. NECA did a good job of capturing her look, as compared to promotional artwork and in game models. They even captured the almost vacant, drugged look on Chell's face. For accessories, Chell includes a stand which is necessary because the long fall boots are not good for standing around on. Even more necessary is the Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device, aka the portal gun. It lights up! It would have been really cool to get a companion cube or GLaDOS as a potato too, or a turret. Perhaps they will be included with Atlas or P-body.


And now, a special debate between Gordon Freeman and Chell on the subject of whose crazy gun is better:
