Reverso O Boxes

Postby Rob Rand » Fri Sep 07, 2018 7:06 am

Three stunningly, beautiful boxes which allow the performer
myriad effects, limited only by your imagination.

Reverse O Boxes has been inspired and uses a devilishly, deceptive
principle, from the legendary, magician, Robert Harbin.

These boxes will open up a journey of magical discovery for the
performer or can grace the cabinet of any magical collector.

Beautifully crafted in veneer wood with a stunning
high gloss finish and rich suede interiors.

Included in the instructions are some great routines and
ideas by Steve Cook using the Reverse O Boxes.

OK these boxes drive me crazy. First I didn't want them because already spent so much on Perplexing Bolt, then they were all reserved, and now I ended up in Tony's Waiting list.

So yes, I want them. And only the ones who possess The Magic of Robert Harbin know how it works, they are even allowed to build them themselves.

Therefore a brutal question: anybody here who owns the book The Magic of Robert Harbin, and can tell me something about these boxes, not exposing but maybe a hint? Or just saying Yes I have the book and haha I won't tell you anything:)

EDIT: all the time I thought this effect was inspired by Robert Harbin's My Lady's Ring, but I was wrong, it's Card to bottle, described in Harbincadabra...

I share your thoughts, and the boxes look very nice, but as usual the images are tiny, which is annoying. I am also not sure about which effects can be achieved with this. One possibility is briefly described in the ad, but it is also stated that there are many.

In the end, this is too expensive for me (as was the Perplexing Bolt), not in the sense that I can't raise the money, I just feel it's too much.

The book isn't available (was only printed in 500 copies as far as I could tell), so learning more about this seems difficult.

I managed to order this one as well as finding a Perplexing Bolt, good old Tony Curtis ;)
The smaller the better for me as that's what draws me to Magic Wagon.
They only made 50 sets of Reverse O Boxes so its going to be hard to find a set if you missed out.

I first was not so on fire with these boxes because there are so much box trickst produced and i was a bit tired of all these boxes which i also find extrem expensive but after a while and some researches i get realy on fire with this box-set, unfortunately it was then too late and all sets were already reserved. I wish all those who were lucky enough to belong to the 50 lucky ones a lot of joy with it. At Magic Wagon you always have to make a quick decision and you also have to be liquid with the corresponding coins.

To my amazement I received yesterday a mail from Tony with a pay link to order a copy of Reverse O Boxes. Needless to say that I considered this as my lucky day!

So I was glad that I put myself on the waiting list, I was probably one of the first.

Got a track and trace link today, so now I'm really happy that I could get a copy!

Great news Rob. I think this one is going to be in the top 3 of all time.

I am with you Simon, I think this will really be great. I bought a set- but am a super fan of boxes, so it was a no brainer for me!

I was on the waiting list and I'm happy I managed to get one too. I think a few remain, so if interested I wouldn't hesitate too long.

I received my copy of Reverse O Boxes today. They are fantastically made. A lot of items are enclosed, so you can start right away!

But don't expect a complicated mechanism.

That said, with a great routine, as described very detailed in the manual, it will be a joy to perform!

Concerning that, the routine of John Talbot is really clever, now that I know how the boxes work :)
