Last week Valve, the company behind the Portal series, received a crate containing a stunning replica of the iconic Portal turret sentry. Check out this video to see the turret in action.

Valve explains the origin of the crate:

On September 13th, 2012, Valve received another mysterious crate from WETA Workshop. Inside was a full-scale, articulated Portal turret, complete with a motion sensor. Once again, WETA Workshop’s gone far, far beyond our expectations to deliver something truly amazing. Thank you, WETA Workshop!

If you’re ready to waste a little time geeking out over awesome props, designs, and other special FX goodies, you’ll definitely want to check out WETA’s site.
