This is kind of ridiculous, isn't it? Paul Harris Presents did not start the thread. And, Tom G is one of the good guys on this forum.

PH Presents is advertising the trick and taking pre-orders. What's wrong with that? It's not a conspiracy.

I agree. I started this thread because I'm excited to see how this one turns out. I wanted to spread the word to everyone because this is something new. This is the "Latest and Greatest" forum is it not?

Lighten up guys, we are just having fun.

The REASON for pre-orders is to GET a REALLY good idea of how many units to make. Making things cost money and no one wants an inventory sitting around their living room if the units exceeds the demand. It is just another marketing method to ensure that cost is in balance with orders.

I figured someone would have said that to me by now.

I heard that little test man number 53 broke one of his little legs and had to be re-rolled into a little clay ball. RIP ...little one .... you will be missed... I only hoped that the little clay men have health insurance and was covered. After all they have rights too! LOL

It seems to me that all the "squeeky wheeling" going on can only hope to encourage the producers to rush the product to market. I am very interested in this little guy. But I would rather wait 5 years and get something great than 5 weeks and get something half finished.

People need to learn things for themselves. I totally understand about thinking how the next great trick that comes out will make me the best magician ever.I thought that way when I was starting out.

I have learned my lesson & very rarely buy anything new that comes out, I have spent time polishing old favorites & working to improve what I already do.

I used to spend as much time buying magic as I did learning it.

Anyway..........................I still want to see a demo of this little man.

Well I'm looking forward to it and all I've got to say is: Whether you are religious or not (and I am), patience is always a virtue. I don't know of too many negative things that come from patience, but there are always negative things that come from impatience. Just as that's true in practicing a trick before you try and perform it. It's understandably hard to have patience, but it's always worth it! And I'm not talking about purchasing tricks and effects, because I know sometimes things end up being trash. I'm simply talking about the patience itself.

A bit of history...
In the mid 90's John Kennedy came up with some of the best magic ever. Translocation and many more.
John, Tim Conover and myself decided to use John's genius to test a bunch of our friends ability to "keep a big secret."

We created a BS story that John had a new effect called the Tiny Human Being! We described the effect as follows: John shows his hands empty, cups them together for 10 seconds and when he opens his hands there is a little tiny human being dressed in a suit. He raises his arm and waves at you and nods his head. Then John closes his hands again and in a few seconds the little tiny human being is GONE!

So we told this to about 30 friends with the explicit instruction not to tell ANYBODY. It took less than 24hrs. for phone calls to start flooding in with a million questions.

So nobody could keep a secret then either...

Of course our scam worked because everybody knew John could come up with something like this.
We didn't have a demo as there was no YouTube in 1985.

Now back to your original program.

How about using the Ball Vase to hold the clay. I know we need to ask ourselves "What would Skinner have done?"

Forget Little Man.... I WANT TINY HUMAN BEING!!!! Will this be offered by Bob Kohler Productions!!!!? Can I do it in walkaround? Can the Tiny Human act as a holdout? Could I paint it red to match my sponge balls? I do a dove act so can I glue feathers on the Tiny Human? What do you think it will be priced at? Is it easy to replace? Do I need any special equipment? I need him to be smaller than 4 inches so do you make custom sizes? Can he be a Fat Tiny Human? Will he survive if I leave him in a Lippincott Box for over a hour? Will you make tiny illusions I can use on him? Is there a way of making him instantly grow into a lifesize human? I won't buy it if it requires any sleight of hand! Can he learn to do impressions? Does he have to be wearing a suit? Can he be wearing a leather thong, sandals and a pinwheel hat? Can I get a whole family of Tiny Humans? When he vanishes do I need a pull or a topit? Is he also immortal or will I have to rebuy him again? And, if so, are the replacements cheaper since I'll have all the rest of the gimmicks? Can I dress him as a clown and use him at children's parties? Do I have to diaper him? Speaking of that, what is his diet like? I don't want to own a vegetarian! Do you have a Kosher Tiny Human?

Thanks.

Oops, I forgot the most important thing: I need to see a demo and have at least a hundred people buy it and give a review before I purchase this... so can you make that happen.... NOW!!!!

Well, I'm going back to my uncreative life, but if I come up with more questions for you I'm sure you'll be sitting by your computer ready to answer them all.

So do folks have to leave the room for the two minute reset?
Can that two minutes be spent under the table doing another routine?
Can they bring their own playdoh?
What if a child eats the little man?

Little MAN by Paul Harris sounds good.

Is there a DEMO? I would like to see an uncut performance demo, if there is one.

No demo - No buy - No money.

I don't know why, but when I read the most posts in this topic and I see the number of pages this topic has already reached for a trick that isn't there and will not be in a short time, I involuntary must think at a similar phenomenon the last weeks, called "crossroads".

The result: not for all but surely for many: a big dissapointment.
