80s Combustible Lemon Launcher by TheLoneRedSheep 80s Combustible Lemon Launcher by TheLoneRedSheep
Hello investors, Cave Johnson here.

Introducing the 1980s consumer version of our most popular fire-starting product: The Aperture Science Hand-held Combustible Lemon Launcher. Due to a large demand and re-surfacing of old stock, this old Aperture favorite is now available to you. This hand-held, break-action launcher of combustible lemons is sure to light up anyone's day - just not as effectively... Seriously though, I don't know why you people keep asking for an inferior model. Anyway, load a lemon in the compartment, squeeze the trigger, and watch as the ignition system sets it ablaze as it hurtles toward your enemy. Not quite as inspiring stuff. Don't have any spare matches? It can light grills too (Warning: extreme risk of melting; do not attempt unless grill is made out of tungsten). The Combustible Lemon Launcher comes complete with a handle (of course), a fore-grip, one of two kinds of colored (but faded) LEDs- for your viewing pleasure, and a three-lemon starter pack (Disclaimer: The launcher no longer comes with lemons due to excessive amounts of mold), so just make those checks out to cash, send that to us, and we'll throw it at your doorstep.

Cave Johnson- we're done here.


This is the 1980s model.
Here is the modern version: [link]

The greatest invention to come from Aperture since the Aperture Science Hand-held Dual Portal Device.

I saw this in the steam workshop. It was amazing. I know it's unlikely, but I really hope that they include it in the game because it's just that awesome.

Don't know if you'll ever see this, but if you do, and feel like it, would you please make a concept of the 'Aperture Science High Energy Pellet Launcher/Catcher' in the Old-Aperture style?

I was planning on making more concepts. Perhaps I can add that one to the list.

Wow... I so freaking love this. This would be great to advertise for my Portal 2 podcast. Seriously, I would love to do a fake advertisement for this.

If I ever start making prints available on anything, I guess I could.
I don't think anyone would buy it anyway

I could see that provided the attachment on the front was removed.

O like the designs for these lemon launchers, but there is a flaw in them. Even if it fires a lemon into fire like that, the lemon wouldn't be exposed to the fire long enough to actually even catch fire. But anyway, I'm just being nit-picky. XD I like it tough.

I will eventually be modeling it, but my intention was for it to go to the Pyro. I suppose I could make alternatives of it to fit those two characters when that time comes.
