Re: Your favourite rare tenyo piece!

I came across a pristine "Fantastic" a few years ago - it, along with SideKick, may be my most prized rare Tenyo pieces.

Re: New tenyo plus one just announced!

I would love to see Tenyo put out the entire +1 line; they have done that in the past for some items. I would think for most of the items, the production costs would be low, and their profit opportunity high - and it would be beneficial to collectors in that we would likely avoid the high costs we s...

Re: Tricks co japan.

Does anyone know if there is a comprehensive listing of Tricks, Co. effects (similar to the T-listing for Tenyo)? I have quite a few Tricks, Co. items, but I have no idea how extensive my collection is. I'd also be interested in learning more about Tricks, Co. - how did they come into being, and wha...

Re: chus version of great Tenyo trick!

I'm fairly certain I won that auction - I missed the fact that it was missing half the prop. From what I can tell, Chu's simply repackaged it.

Re: Four New Tenyo Disney Themed Items

Re: T-109 Midas Machine

When I saw the ad for Midas Machine, it really blew my mind, and when I saw it performed, I was absolutely astounded. It is one of those tricks, in my opinion, that is even more impressive once you know the method. To me, this effect is quintessential Tenyo - great effect, diabolical method, and gre...

Re: 2001 +1 Redemption ILLUSION SCALE

As a guy who is a math nerd and was a psych major in undergrad, I have a special spot in my heart for this effect. Andy Greget's presentation is especially good.

Greetings from Indiana

Hi, everybody - My name is Mark Ratekin, and I live in Carmel, Indiana (the home of the legendary - and, sadly, now gone - Illusions restaurant, which had Chris Kenner, Homer Liwag, Michael Close, and many other great close-up guys performing nightly). I've been a fan of magic since I got a TV Magic...
