Paul Gross' post above states, "These arrived this morning and all pre-orders have been shipped. We have plenty in stock to ship immediately."

If it's download only, then there is an unlimited supply and there's nothing to ship. That's why some of us were confused.

I agree, it really does not make sense. Even better you can't PM Paul for clarification.

Yes, we saw that post. But Paul Gross' post contained seemingly contradictory information, which is what had some of us wondering if perhaps circumstances had changed.

Yeah I'm sure everyone is confused because everyone is talking about they made it..(you also have to think they got first run orders outside of hocus pocus)
so they could now sell it with hocus pocus with gimmicks or dvd or something..
I'm just wondering if its download or instructions mailed.

Hey all friends, thought I should jump out and explain what's happening. We are currently running a new system called E-struction, a combination of both video and written instruction online. The system basically runs like selling DVDs, but what you will receive in the pack contains no physical DVD, just Login information along with customized password. Each set's login information is unique and associate directly with the purchaser's information. Since we only do retail to our private customers, this is just a new system that we are running to control the number of copies flowing on the market, and protect the rights of people who invest in such product.

Hope this answers some of your question.

Best,
Will

Given that it is electronic medium, wouldn't it make sense to e-mail the login and password information? That way, the customer could access it immediately rather than having to wait for a hard copy to be mailed to them.

I agree Bob. Why not just e-mail the info? I was thinking about getting this, And I probably still will. But the whole "We will SHIP you login info" thing is a little hard to swallow.

What gives?

The effects on the DVD and lecture notes are far beyond your abilities. (They require mastery of the mechanic's grip.) It would only break your heart.

Mine arrived. You get access to a website that has detailed instruction on construction and also video clips.

I also got David Forrest's "Colour Burn" DVD with the same order just to see if they would be cool to combine. The fast change of WTF or the slow change of Colour Burn. Should be fun to play with.

I'm really happy with this. At first I thought they should supply everything and charge $75 or so. But, this is better because you can make up your own, customize, etc.

The deck would be easy to make. I think I'd go to Jeremy at Underground Gaffs for the special effect of the instant change as I'd want that to be perfect.

Received this today, and I have some work to do...

The main principle is not new, see Glenn Gravatt "Final Selection", trick called Transposing cards. But the combination and use of principles are nice.

The cost of sending this to me (Norway) with priority mail was $15. I was kind of surprized when I opened the big envelope and the only thing inside was a usename and a password!

And the video clips cannot be downloaded. Only streaming. So this is not for your library.

A lot of money for an old idea, in a new wrapping. But a nice wrapping.

As an owner of Glenn's Final Selection, without going into method, there are significant differences in WTF that allow what you see from the demo to happen which cannot be done with Glenn's Transposing Cards. I was surprised how much thoughts went into this effect to accomplish what it does. At the price of $30 nowadays, it's a bargain to me! Smile

For the effect and the thought that has gone into this, I think they gave great value for the price.

I take question in service of hocus pocus. Recently~
They do sale all almost 1 year and for 365 days.
But, the retail price is appropriated high. Compare with other magic shop~
There are a lot of items that do not become sale
Delivery fare is expensive.
Specially foreign countries delivery~
I bought items before several days. 1 Buy,2nd Item Get 50% OFF Sale Event!
But, was calculated by credit card.
By price that discount is not applied.
They did not send last invoice.
Sent invoice request mail,but did not answer either.
But, advertisement mail sent.
Why do not they improve site?
Maybe To play thief service.
Are you foreigner? Go Penguin Magic~

Now, must realize net about discount event.

Loops 2DVD

Penguin : $46.50 - $4.65(10% OFF) = $41.85 + $11.95(Foreign) = $53.8
Hocus Pocus : $49.95 - $14.958(30% OFF) = $34.992 + $23(Maybe) = $57.992

US?
Penguin : $41.85 + Free Shpping = $41.85
Hocus Pocus : $34.992 + $6 (Minimum) = $40.992 More(Never Minimum)

Still, I feel that Hocus Pocus is not my friend. They don't care about my costs when they send this little paper slip in a big envelope for $15. I does not affect their income, I join the other members who have asked why not just e-mail, or a small letter envelope. But never mind. This has nothing to do with the product.

I am not so entusiastic about the product as others here. I bought it because it was stated that it was not a force. Then I could not figure it out. How could it be possible to change the whole deck into any selected card? Not possible, or ? I just had to check it out. What a deck to use in walk-around situations! But I was cheated once again.

But of cource, the spectators may get the impression that the deck is changed into whatever card they selected. But this effect I can create with my current knowledge and several forcing decks, for example Svengali.

I love Svengali's, but that deck can't create the color change that WTF accomplishes.

By stating no force, there was no specific card needed to be shifted or controlled. Any card being touched and selected by the spectator is shown. There's no force operational-wise. Before I purchased, I emailed Will and that's what he answered me. He was very open to this. And to me, it is a fair statement.

I am a Svengali lover myself, but WTF does much more to me. I've made the deck and had so much fun in the past week! What's in the demo is exactly what I got from the purchase. I think it is an honest advertisement considering the video demo shows the entire performance with no editing. What you would receive from the order (electronic access info) is also openly stated from Hocus-Pocus. If thatˇ¦s how they are marketing the effect and you make the decision to purchase, thereˇ¦s really no point to complain. No offence to anyone, just my personal thoughts. I am not associate with Hocus-Pocus but being their long-time customer. And Iˇ¦ve always received great service from them. Thought it would be unfair to them considering everything is openly stated from their website.
