I did not know that the Twins can build illusions, I thought they were just performers (by the way, excellents)!

Do they have the right to build the "Mini Cube Zag"? I thought it is only Puchinger, Chalet and Smoky Mountain.

From the looks of the prop, I would say "No"...

Looks Like another builder selling rip off illusions, I saw the cutting into six on eBay for about 450, it looked like cheap rubbish

Thorin,

I would try to find the answer to your question starting at the other end : What illusion do you like to get build ? Then, after having checked who's the authorized builder of this specific illusion, you should contact this builder to get more informations.

There are very few ethique illusion builders in Europe. So be careful and always check first. Don't go with builders that support ripp offs in any form. Even though they might have the right to build a specific illusion, if they ripp off another one, go to another illusion builder who supports the inventors and creators of our art and craft.

Good luck.

Oliver.

Thank you all for your responses. It is difficult to find builders in Europe.

Oliver, I was thinking of buying a substitution trunk. I know that this is not the most difficult illusion to build yourself but I am not too good at this. I have never perform this illusion so the fact that almost every trunk I have seen on the internet is from the US makes it even harder for me.

I happen to know Magiscape, and the high quality of the illusions produced. I've personally seen the cutting into sixths and can verify that this is built to an exceptionally high standard. I would strongly suggest that you check your facts and base comments on these rather than unsubstantiated opinions. If you don't know the illusion builder personally then there's no reason whatsoever in making negative comments. Whilst I rarely post on here, I am astonished by how so many people are quick to criticise rather than praise. In my experience, those who are always criticising rarely have any redeemign features of their own.

I would RECOMMEND MAGISCAPE UNRESERVEDLY and if you want an illusion in the UK, MAGISCAPE IS an illusion builder you should seriously consider.

They may indeed build wonderful props.

...but according to Gunter Puchinger, they have not procured the rights to manufacture his Mini Kub Zag.
