You win by having a working "little man" before December of 2011. You win the admiration and respect of everyone here on The Magic Café! And... a free toaster!

You'll notice that I haven't perfected the moving or walking legs....it seems he just slides across the table, but I think it's still pretty good. You can declare a winner and send me the toaster now.

Looks good to me, but what are the angle restrictions? And, can you give the clay away afterwards? (lol)

Its states at the bottom of the link (in green type) that it will be released in October. So that's October 2010... 10 months away.

You guys need to wait.

Sorry here is the link.

Its states October.. So that's about 10 months away..

Also I think we need to understand this is Paul Harris! Not some one trick wonder kid.. PH is a legend in our industry so lets just stop posting and wait for it to come out.

Here is a video of the one and only Paul Harris talking about Little Man in details and also Titans Finger. He is not joking with the magic community its the real deal. Just wait for it to come out.

That was October 09 (as in two months ago).

Also, all this focus on Paul Harris is probably misplaced. Yes, he put his name on the product, but the guy who's pulling his hair out right now trying to get everything to work is Rod Whitlock, the creator and engineer of the effect.

In other words, Paul doesn't really have anything to do with the mechanics of why things are taking so long, and in fact those very mechanics are probably something PH is waiting on with just as baited breath as some here are.

Yes but the video interview is clearly compelling Paul has seen it.

That's right. The October date was for 2009 not 2010. There are obviously problems with the machanics of "Little Man" that we are not aware of. Despite the claims that the prototype model is working, I believe by opinion that there maybe still some issues that need to be fixed before a proper demo can be made. Paul would never (IMO) put his name on something that was just a pipe dream.

A few people had seen the original prototype and admitted that it didn't look very impressive. Janet herself has stated that the prototype needed more work. However, we have also been told a lot of things that only raises more questions. Apparently the prototype was fixed and working as described in the ads,(according to Janet).

Folks have to remember that discussions about "Little Man" began when Paul Harris Productions started to market it. We are very much permitted to talk about it as much as we want, no matter what someone may think. Although I respect everyone's opinion, having someone try and tell us that we shouldn't be discussing it and then discussing it themselves by posting links and making comments is... Smile

I thought this was interresting. This is the rules for this forum.

"Latest and Greatest? - FORUM RULES

OVERVIEW:

It's inevitable that not a week goes by that we don't hear about the next great trick, book or DVD that is about to be released into our magic community. Naturally, we are curious and usually have a question or two floating around in the back of our collective heads. Given all that, It is perfectly normal that we can easily imagine what such a product might be like, and what it might do to improve our own magic performances. But, until the item is actually obatainable for purchase, we can only use our imaginations and speculate.

That is the purpose of this forum. To provide a place where folks can discuss the latest rumors, read announcements and speculate about the obvious hyperbole surrounding many of the upcoming products that are released into magicdom. Will they be genuine miracles or mere rhetoric? We ponder the question...

FORUM RULES & GUIDELINES:

Curious about an upcoming product? This is the forum to post your thoughts. THIS FORUM IS NOT FOR REVIEWS. Reviews imply that you actually own and have used the trick, read the book or watched the DVD. Such posts should be made in the appropriate forum located in our The Good, the Bad, and the Garbage category. This forum is all about hype and speculation - nothing more, nothing less.

SPECULATION -VS- EXPOSURE:

It is , after all, only natural to speculate the possible method to a new trick or effect. Comments as to possibilities of a method are just that - Possibilities. One person may say; "I think it might use a piece of velcro" while another may comment; "No, it probably uses a magnet". Either scenario is okay.

However, If someone knows for a fact what the method is and posts it, then we have exposure and the post will be deleted with NO EXPLANATION given.

Finally, those individuals who come to this forum expecting to receive free advertising, think again. Obvious commercial posts (e.g, Now taking pre-orders, Our new product will ship on ..., We are offering a special if you order now, I accept PayPal, etc) will be removed and the offending member may be banned at the descretion of management. You have been warned. For complete details concerning our advertising polices, Click here!. Happy posting."


What I find interresting is that Janet used this forum to post the pre-orders ad and contest for the limited edition version of "Little Man", as well as keeping us updated on when the product would be shipped, breaking all three rules. (lol) I suppose when you have a big reputation, you also become above the rules and regulations as the thread was only locked and not removed.

(no criticism intended with my post. I just found it quite interresting, and thought it was worth mentioning.)

Wow, even after the controversy and all...if this does what it is advertised as doing...It will be MINE! Mwa Ha Ha! The Little Man will walk forth! Perhaps I will have it combined with Power Word: Fall. The Little man walks forth then suddenly turns and bam! the pen he has turned toward falls over. I guess that would be a Jedi Little Man. Really the possibilities are endless. I really hope this turns out to be worth the wait as it sounds AMAZING!

After all this hype, I think it's fair to say that the little man's going to have to walk on water! Seriously, as a magic consumer, I think the long lead time from hype to delivery is unacceptable... I don't care if it IS the Paul Harris. I think this is a disgraceful marketing tactic, be it on purpose or not. This is just MY opinion. Paul, if you're reading this... this potential customer is really turned off by the way you're marketing this product.
