Metamorphosis by Wayne Dobson - FS
From Wayne Dobson and Mark Mason comes Metamorphosis, a super clean super visual 2 coin transposition. 2 coins, 1 Chinese and 1 half dollar are examined by the spectator. The Chinese coin is placed inside the spectators closed hands and the half dollar onto the back of their hand. In the blink of an eye the 2 coins change places. Without any switches etc the 2 coins can instantly once again be examined.

The demo video is not shown the ANY MAGIC MOVEMENT.
Is there any other video of this new product?

Looks like transposition to me except it uses a different gimmick, perhaps a PK ring or something similar. It's nice to see a fresh approach!

It looks like a great transpo.

The demo video is not really clear about the cleanness of the effect - seems rather an awkward move beofre the dollar is placed on to the back of the hand, and the camera cuts away at the moment of the actual metamorphosis.

It appears to be a trick that is good for one to one situations.

I would like to see some reviews of this.
Yours Magically,

Don't know about you... but it looks like "Legal Tender" by Steve Dusheck...

Steve's classic trick uses a playing card to do the dirty work.Or the card in its case as well can be used. Its a classic. I always carry it in my closeup case..

Seems like the same thing....

It's 'Lethal Tender' isn't it ?
By the way I ordered it so when I'll receive it (here in France so please be patient) I'll review it quickly and compare it to Lethal Tender.

The price isn't the same at all by the way, so we have to expect at least good quality gimmicks, perhaps more examinable...

Wait and see...

I have this and it is different to lethal tender in a couple of ways.

First of all the props are quality. Secondly the [ fits over the coin properly.

Lethal Tender By Royal Magic is higher quality version. I have Metamorphosis also. As a store owner I could say buy both. However, I was a magician first; So I am not one to suggest you spend your money on both. The effects are just too close. I feel you would be happy with either one choice.

- My thoughts

Make your own comparison:

Lethal Tender: http://www.nexusmagicstore.com/lethal-te......gic.html

If you should choose Metamorphosis - Mike seems to have the best deal going!

Metamorphosis by Wayne Dobson and Mark Mason (JB Magic) is like Lethal Tender on steroids. Lethal Tender is a great, almost classic effect but Metamorphosis takes it to the next level. If you know Wayne Dobson you know he is one clever guy. Basically you start VERY clean with nothing hidden in your hands and you allow both the half dollar and Chinese Coin to be thoroughly examined. The coins can be examined throughout the handling. The spectator is given both coins (they can again examine them) and put in their closed hands (they can be examined at this point). The half dollar is removed from their hand and put on top of the spectators closed fist. It seems to visually change to the Chinese Coin and the half is now in their hand. The moment here is wonderful. It's kind of like the card under glass or 3 Fly in "feel" as it is so open, so free, and with no apparent cover. The change seems to happen as you are quite a distance from them. They immediately open their hand to see the half and immediately both coins can be examined. You are reset, nothing palmed or hidden in your hand, etc. This is a REAL worker. It's best for a few people such as 2 or 3 or 4 people. It is done in typical Mark Mason/JB Magic fashion... great packaging, clever method, very thorough instructional DVD with various handlings/ideas, all of the props needed, great value, etc. We just had Mark visiting Murphy's and several dealers in to meet Mark or watch him via web. All can attest to how strong this is. Those who had this effect done to them were floored. Mark showed this to me several months ago as he was working on preparation for the release. I immediately knew this was something I wanted for myself. Highly recommended. You will use this. It is extremely easy to do but is something you will use if you are a beginner or a pro. One of the strongest coin transpositions I have seen by far.

If the demo video can be much CLEAR to present the effect, I think that is better.

It's hard to explain why, without giving it away, but the demo clip just cannot do the effect justice or show how strong it is. It would be like doing a trailer on card under glass or such. Don't get me wrong... you don't need the strong misdirection ability you do with Card Under Glass but you also can't get how great this is without experiencing it. I know I am sounding vague. Once a few people have this and try it out I am confident they too will attest to the strength of this. I agree that the demo is not the best but I'd encourage you not to gauge your decision on this or you will miss out on one of the stronger coin effects I have seen. Sometimes clips just cannot convey how wonderful an item is. Such is the case here. Sometimes clips look fantastic but only represent a fraction of an effect and then you are disappointed. You won't be disappointed with Metamorphosis.

No switches?? The effect itself is a "switch"!

I was considering this, and was thinkng about combining it with a c/s/b routine and using this as the final phase, so after doing c/s/b I then make it simpler for the spec, and get rid of the penny leaving the 2 coins and then do the change in their hand.

Any thoughts from anyone if you think this would work ? especially if you have metamorphosis.

Thanks

sounds like a good idea, you may have a problem with the chinese coins matching. I have this on the way I'll let you know if it matches my set.

Yeah right!

I can only assume your mark-up is higher on this version.

There's no way it's better quality.
