Hi guys, the mechanism under the truck, do you think it is a locking mechanism ?

Finally! A Tenyo I have!

Illusion Truck is one of the few Tenyo that you can create a super elaborate routine around and is quite versatile (ala Undercover Cube). The way in which everything works is really clever.

The most impressive routines seem to be the ones that utilize actual slights. The French Drop version posted above is a good example. There is another video floating around where one of the Tenyo Magic demonstrators in Japan does a routine where the lion is constantly appearing and disappearing in the truck and vanishes at the end. That one is really good too.

It's a little pricey, but orth it if you love sleight based Tenyo
Where's my colon?!

No, the mechanism does not lock.

I have really liked this one since it was first released. Many have accused Tenyo of being toys and I don't see anything wrong with the toy-like nature of Tenyo props. In fact, that is the draw for so many of us. Magical toys!

Illusion Truck IS a toy and a well made one at that! There are a variety of ways you can make the lion vanish so it has versatility. Perfect trick to do for kids.

By the way, you can get this for a reasonable price in the sealed ENGLISH package but I wouldn't wait too long because they will become more difficult to find eventually. I don't think they made that many of them.
It's a Tenyo day in the neighborhood!

Agreed - this one NEEDS to be used as a 'toy'. I like the concept, and for kids it's a nice little trick for sure.

It's brilliant, and visually very entertaining.
