Lego Portal takes another step towards reality

The Portal themed Lego set has successfully made the transition from pie in the sky fantasy to the a product in the review stage of development.


Thanks to 10,000 pledges of support the product will now be placed in front of a jury composed of Lego designers, product managers, and other high-level magicians at the construction toy company.

According to an update posted on the project's Cuusoo page the Lego team will now "build concept models, put them in our test chamber, bake them, and determine if the concept meets high standards for what it takes to be a LEGO product,"

The Portal set will be assessed in September on factors including playability, safety, and whether it fits with the LEGO brand. The entire process is expected to last several months before a decision is made.

Fingers crossed.
