Hopefully T11 will replenish the stock so that I can use this for the holidays - unfortunately not this Halloween Saint...

Look I don't know the method or anything like that but if it is what I think then the first thing I thought when I saw this was X-pert. so I might need to get another one of those.

I received mine also

The DVD was very short, only 16 minutes long and one performance. The instructions were kind of rushed but also pretty clear. I did have to rewind a few times. The effect itself is very practical and I will try this out after I get the presentation down well. You really only need a quarter, a pen, and a little something else for this effect to work and will obviously not take up a lot of pocket room. The bonus effect is also pretty good.

I didn't really care about the short DVD, but the one thing that did annoy me was the special gimmick supplied was different than the one Daniel White used in the video and the gimmick supplied is far less usable. It probably only costs a few bucks in the store for the gimmick that Daniel White uses, but it's still annoying to be supplied a cheap gimmick. Besides that, everything else that was supplied was quality and should last hundreds of performances.

however, if you liked the effect on David Blaine's special, I would get this. 9.5/10 for the effect, 8/10 for the packaging and DVD

Just as an update, MJM was one of the first to order these, and like all dealers, we were told by Theory 11 that they would ship around the 10th of October.

However, due to a delay on their end, this preorder date got pushed back. We informed all of our customers about it via email, but since I wasn't aware that this was posted here, I will copy below the exact response from Theory 11 as it was given to us a few weeks ago:

"Today has been a crazy hectic day all around here at theory11. In simplest form, we have bad news to report. I'll start with the bad news. Both Mathieu Bich and I have been on the phone and generating a flurry of emails all day with the supplier of one of the key components of eXile. The package of supplies was supposed to arrive in our warehouse yesterday, but it did not show up. After countless phone calls and emails over the past 24 hours, we found out that the package has not yet been shipped from France by the supplier - and would not be shipped until Monday.

We screamed, yelled, and kicked, but we were told there was nothing we could do to expedite the process any further. Both Mathieu Bich and I personally worked on trying to speed this up all throughout the night (literally - because of the time zones), but our efforts were fruitless. We tried our best, but it appears that it will be one extra week before shipping. Using inferior quality materials was not an option for us, as the materials provided with eXile are the exact materials used by DB on the special - we refused to settle for anything less.

If we can do anything at all to expedite the process any further - we will continue pushing, and we have already arranged for the fastest shipping option humanly possible from France to our warehouse."


That being said, the good news is that our first batch already shipped out to us on the 21st, and should be arriving (and shipping to our customers) any day now. We've also sold out of that first large preorder batch, and we're currently waiting for the second batch to ship, so anyone who happens to preorder this with us now will still be on that second round of DVD's which will hopefully be shipping out to us next week.

Hope that clears things up for the MJM customers on this board. You're always welcome to contact us through our site if you have further questions.
Your friend in magic,

I got mine in the mail yesterday. I like the effect. It took me a few minutes to get the pen put together w/ the ink cartridge. Initially it got stuck in the bottom of the pen. It took forever to get it out. Anyway, I was shocked to see what the special props were to help make the ink vanish. I used to play with this stuff when I was a kid! I won't expose what it is though. Very cool concept. I just wish I thought of it!

Maybe Dan should let us know what kind of pen should we get after used up the supply attached with the DVD... which he did not mentioned inside DVD contents.

Hopefully something where the ink isn't PURPLE. Its just like the magic doodle pen. In my opinion black ink would be much less suspicious then purple ink on a spectator's hand. But maybe I'm just paranoid.

It is different then the magic doodle pen. The ink is blue and doesn't erase the same way that the magic doodle pen does.
