This is a cool trick:



Probably the die can not be examined however, but that's OK.

The only issue, if you can call it that, I have is the cheap looking plexi boxes and tubes ... but the trick itself isn't exactly cheap: 75 EURO.

By the way Rob, according to the description this was invented a long time ago by REBRU, the Ribbon Box inventor!

Yes... I have the same trick, less beautiful but made by Rebru, from the estate of Berry Merlin..

I believe this version is made by Frans Reijnier... I remember when I visited him that he showed it to me. Frans is a great maker of magic items.

Worth 75 EURO Rob? Is it the among us collectors 'well known principle' at work here ... ?

I see this trick this week in an email and thought about buying it but I would like to know how examinable the Dice is, I think it would work like Horus escape or visible Vampire.
The question for me is how well does the block lock.

I can give you the answer. It is not really amazing. The cube simple consists of 2 U-forms. You pay for the craftmanship.

Even though I know the workings of this piece, I like it because of its different approach to the die penetration effect.
Unfortunately, the shipping cost to the United States makes this a bit too expensive for me.
If it ever comes available from a US magic retailer, I will purchase it.
Since I already own a few effects that use this type of die, I guess I could make my own outer boxes and tubes (or even use two short magic wands instead of tubes)

Yes Kirk, you can make the boxes with cardboard, and ornament them with a nice metallic paper. That's how my Rebru version was made of :) About the rolls, yes wands are possible too.

This is something I would love to see in Kent's 3D Magic Works!!

Roberto, I agree ...
Perfect candidate for 3D Magic Works item.
Having said this, I would like to see it smaller.
My advance order is in!
and now, on with the show ...

Great idea for Kent indeed!

And knowing Kent, he will always add something extra ...

By the way, I paid 25 euro for the 'original' Rebru Die penetration ...

So, has anyone purchased Cubes and Tubes and if so, what did you think? Is the quality of the piece good and does the die stay together without fear of it coming apart when you dump it out of the box?

I bought Cubes And Tubes and the quality is top notch, you can drop the dice out without worrying about it coming apart because its made quite tight.
I will make a quick video when I get a moment.

That is good news. I just placed my order for one yesterday but I'm sure it will take several weeks to get to the United States.
