Well all I can say is if this thing is good it may be one small step for our clay friend---but it is one giant leap for magic!


Good magic to all,

Oh man... I wonder what the special gift will be.. that cute little hat? lol


LOL! Best post by far.

Still, I'm so tempted to pre-order in my ever ending hunt for the holy grail. The only bit that worries me is the plastic bag, though I assume it has a dual purpose - as well a Little Man having to walk on it, you'll also need to shove him in it and suffocate him after the trick, before throwing him in the canal.

Hello everyone

Posted on the other Little Man thread, but wanted you to see it here, too.
It's hard for me to read some of the negative things posted here but I can certainly sympathize with you. It's been a very long wait for Little Man and Paul admits it was a mistake to release this until it was in the warehouse and ready to ship.

Some of you mentioned hearing about this not being real or not working. A year or so ago there was a rough model that was being shown around that had a lot of things that needed to be refined. Over the year all of the issues have been resolved... the final version of the effect you receive will be perfect in every aspect. Of course, my brother is not going to ruin his reputation by releasing an expensive item that doesn't work.

Will have a rough home-made demo up in a few weeks. Hope that this puts the rumors to rest and gives you all reason to be happy and glad about the coming release of this truly brilliant piece of astonishment.

Well, it's been a few weeks, Still can't fully understand what could be taking sooo long to make a rough demo of a product that you say is now functional. Your last post you state

"All the literally hundreds of manufacturing details on the little clay guy are just about wrapped up. Hoping for December release. The demo is still at least a month away. Yep, another busted "dead line" in the name of Little Man perfection. He's warming up with little push ups and leg stretches to get ready for his first public walk."

It's now over a month since you posted that. Yes, another busted deadline right? On the other thread you said that a demo was a few weeks away. You posted that comment I think Nov, 20. You told us the model was working and functioning. How long does it actually take to put a quick rough demo together? Seriously!

How about the heart in that image - is that real and just perfectly lit or is something else amiss here? All CGI? A prank like that torn and restored card offering after the David Copperfield special?

IMHO one of the things Paul Harris represented was an integrity of practical works - that what was offered in the books could be prepared economically and performed in the real world. The coin spinning between two coins was understood as a sort of juggling challenge and not a work to perform.

So how does this latest item compare to the chocolate coin, reset and the rest of what's in those old books full of goodies that bear his name?

Hello Everyone,

A little update on Little Man. The demo is almost finished, and I will post it
as soon as I have it. Also a few performance questions have been raised, so
wanted you to know there are no restrictions on performing Little Man. Works on any flat table, any lighting, no angle issues. You just walk up to any flat table, floor, etc., with the bag and you're set to go. No body hook ups, exposed threads, etc.
The effect from start to finish is completely self contained.
Thank you again for your extreme patience,
Janet

Hoping indeed. Am I the only one who is not terminally excited over this? I just can't see the magic. Seems more like techy-tricky than magic. With what is out there today, I can make a helicopter come into the room and land on a specs head... make butterflies emerge from scraps of torn newspaper... bring flies to life... etc. etc. etc. ... unless this little guy is going to do a kung fu form how is it going to impress today's juandiced audiences...???
