Re: This one baffled me...

Here is a possible explanation: The bottom of the box is hinged at the center and folds from left to right. There is a magnet to hold the pencil and ring holder.

Re: New tenyo elite

I am very disappointed with Zig Zag Cigarette too but ordered one anyway because they say it has a limited run. Shipping date is estimated to be on February 15, 2014. I am assuming that they are still trying to figure out the number of units to produce based on the pre-order.

Re: Tenyo for Christmas

I was able to get the Penultimate Coin Box Collection which is a very hard item to find. It was a Christmas Present to myself. John B. and I were looking it over when he visited the other day and we both we impressed with it. http://tenyo-magic.blogspot.com/2010/05/tenyo-penultimate-coin-box-collec...

Re: Tenyo Vanish in the Clouds

I missed the video, it no longer exist. I have this trick and Simon is right. Mine has a brown box with Japanese instructions only.

Re: Real crazy website "revealing" magic tricks!

Only a very frustrated magician would do such a thing. He must have been caught every time he performs a trick. This person wants recognition but is not capable of performing magic so he decides to expose tricks. Losers are everywhere but this guy tops the list.

Re: New Jenzo Harmonics video

I just saw the video. It’s a great trick, fooled me. Nice craftsmanship of the prop too.
I think the effect could be enhanced if the design on the prop is changed to vertical lines to create an illusion that the space on the sides of the match is smaller than the coin.

Re: New Tenyo Elite item

My guess for the new Tenyo Elite item is Tenyo T-97 Super Stick. It can be made out of wood, made before 1984, and is rare. It is easy and cheap to manufacture too. Also the people at Tenyo Elite are fond of paddle tricks. My other guesses are: T-63 Walt Disney World- problem with this one is the co...

Re: Opinions/Reviews

Hi Kabayan!

Prison Box is a must have trick. It is mystifying, easy to do, and can be performed surrounded.

Mobile Illusion is another excellent Tenyo piece. Get this one if you possibly can. It has no angle problem.

Escape King - save your money unless you want to complete the T-Series.

Re: This one baffled me...

Great performance, Roberto B.! Very clever indeed! DicEscape is an excellent trick but requires a lot of practice to perform smoothly. Also do not expect that one can perform this trick exactly in the same manner as that with Roberto B. The props are examinable but the tube is quite fragile. I have ...

Re: Magic Wagon Ultimate Penetration Frame

Thanks for the info, Rob Rand. I just wanted to know because if ever I acquire this piece I might not be able to do it without the stand as well as you do it.

Re: Magic Wagon Ultimate Penetration Frame

Nice video! If I saw this video before the item sold out I would have bought one. This is more of a parlor trick than micro magic as I expected. Is the stand gimmicked? If it is, you can do the penetration with the glass in the stand and you can do the trick surrounded. But I think your handling is ...

Sorry I made a mistake, Wonder Window uses two separate plexiglass as well.

Re: Magic Wagon Ultimate Penetration Frame

I think the method is similar to the Tenyo Wonder Window but uses two separate plexiglass instead of a single plexiglass. The second one is pulled out into place as the cover is inserted.

It states that it is mechanical marvel. This might be a wooden version of Tenyo Wonder Window.

Magic Wagon Ultimate Penetration Frame

The latest from Magic Wagon. This will probably be sold out in a few hours. Get one now if you are interested. I like Magic Wagon props because of the quality of their products but I am not buying this one as the frame is too thick. http://www.magic-wagon.com/ProductDetai ... d=127&pa=9

The very first magic props that I acquired were the Tenyo Chinese Wands, Cubio, Silk Serenade, Crystal Tube, and Coin ...
