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...???


This is the kind of simple magic that the crowds I play to would love. I've often found that bigger isn't always better and that the ultimate reputation making trick simply isn't out there. It's about your whole act and if this ingredient suits what you do then it could be a great effect.

I've pre-ordered and am hoping I won't have to cancel when the demo's finally released.

That means I can buy 2, sell you one and still be in profit by 2400 - Thumb Tips in my opinion are vastly vastly underpriced - could sell you one of my Vernets for , oh say the price of a holiday home in Florida.

Wow, this thread hasn't been locked! Maybe there is still a chance for the little guy.

Yay, but just think how great the rough demo is going to be, especially after over three months in production of it.
:)

Merry Christmas everyone!

It's not Little Man, but a rough demo of a little clay man has been found in time for Christmas. Enjoy!

Seems to me that threads about things which do not yet exist will always, given time, devolve into what we saw in the other thread - either that or exposure.

But when I mentioned this months ago I was told to buzz off, that having threads to discuss things that don't exist was not only fun but good for magic. I mean, it's fun to ask everyday if there's a demo, right?

Apparently that theory did not hold.

It's the nature of the beast. Discussing products before they are released can only accomplish two things: 1)potential exposure and 2)anxiety and anticipation for the time of release. When that time is delayed, we get what we got.

So, have they pulled the plug?

It's still the Christmas holiday and I will try to be kind. However, the biggest mistake was having a certain person come on here and pass off misleading info just to keep the buzz going.

We were apparently not getting correct info, and in fact being lead on to believe that something was close to being finished. To have someone come on here and repeatedly say that a rough demo was in the works and would be ready soon, only to wait three months later and still have no rough demo is proof enough that the information we have been given is false.

There are obviously problems happening behind the scenes that we are not aware of. In fact, whatever problems they are having are quite frankly none of our business. But, misleading us with false infomation is our business, even if we did not pre-order. It is disrespectful and unethical to anyone who has shown an interrest in the product.

Remember, the hype and advertising was started by Paul Harris Productions. Paul himself knew exactly what stage they were in when they started to market the crap out of "Little Man". Paul apparently was passing messages to his sister for her to relay to us here. If she was just doing what her brother was asking, then I have no issue with her. It's not her fault for being caught in the middle.

Maybe Paul should speak for himself. Come clean to what is going on. It would finally settle the storm that has been brewing for several months now.

Right on Smile It's time for another update from Janet or maybe even from Paul himself. He can squelch our concerns *instantaneously* by providing an explanation for the latest delay along with his revised ETA. Not unreasonable.

While we're waiting for Pual to release his effect, I suggest we have a "little man reverse engineering contest" where we try to accomplish the effect using methods of our own design. First person to post a believable YouTube video wins.
Mediocrity is greatly under rated!
