First of all, I'm guessing that this is out of Paul's control. Rodney Whitlock is involved, and Paul or Janet can't very well post that the hold up is due to Rodney.

Second, it's very unfair to criticize Janet. She's new to the game and is only helping out her brother.

Third, I believe that this is Paul's first solo business venture. He has always relied on others to handle the marketing and business side of things, so I think every one should cut him some slack.

I saw a recent interview with him, and he sounded a little disenchanted with the whole thing. In fact, he said he would never talk about any upcoming projects again because he doesn't want to have to answer the inevitable question, "When is it coming out?"

Granted, this was advertised way too early. But, why is everyone being so mean? I'm pretty sure it wasn't Paul's intention to tease everyone with something that wasn't ready for prime time.

Ill informed guesses and then making excuses for others ...

Just because the book one started learning from tells one to point to where you want the audience to look after a french drop does not excuse poor technique or misdirection in performance.

IMHO not worth making statements directed at PH - just some questions about PHP.

Is there a point at which the Little Man offer will be withdrawn or does everyone think that as long as this thread grows it proves customers will be patient?

The more enthusiastic we become the more we will expect. Here's hoping Little Man is a big success.

For the time being...at 5' 6" I could be considered a "little man." If you pay me $300.00 you can cover me with clay and I will walk.

For $3.65, you can just rent "Little Man" starring Damon Wayans and buy a pack of play-doh to play with while you watch it.

If I'm not mistaken all of us "crawled" before we "walked". Little Man will walk---he just needs help getting started.


Good magic to all,

Good point, perhaps he should start with "Little Skydiver". Plop!

David, thanks for the kind offer, but for me you are a bit too late. I am in negotiations with some out-of-work Ommpa Loompa's. Can't say more at this point, but you may be able to pre-order and qualify for more of my stuff...

I hope both Paul and his sister can see that a lot of this is just some reasonably good-natured ribbing. At least that is how I read, and intend,it- especially the haiku...

So the year winds down,
Too late for 2009?
New Year means clean slate...

Here's to all for a great
and magical 2010!

As 2009 comes to an end,
and we still wait for "Little Man",
keep in mind there are better things to do,
than wait around feeling blue.

"Little Man" may never come,
and some of us will feel dumb,
for holding out for so long,
listening to the same old song.

So here's to 2010,
let's forget about "Little Man",
There are many tricks on the market today,
that have a demo we can play.

So give them a chance,
and I'm sure you'll agree,
there are still plenty of other tricks for you and for me!

I'm pretty sure I've found a link directly related to "little man"...
I won't post it here because I don't want to spoil anything.
Just ask if you want and I'll pm it to you...
omg, I hope I'm wrong...

Good evening all.
I understand the disappointment with the marketing of this effect. I just don't understand how anyone could be so harsh with how long it is taking.
Did you pay for it as a pre-order?
If you did and don't like the time it's taking, get your money back.
If you didn't, and your just upset this isn't your newest thing to have then I can understand that as well.
They admitted they may a have made a boo-boo in talking about this to early.
The actual item might have had potential but wasn't up to PH's standards.
Or maybe he had some better ideas.
At this point I don't think any one of us knows.
Can you make a good argument that an effect shouldn't be released without real world experience? Yup.
But we don't even know that.
It might work right in the proper hands. This is being marketed for the general public.
That can't be easy. I can't imagine what that would be like.

I'm not trying to excuse what PHP has done.
Just trying to understand.
I refuse to believe that PHP is trying to deceive us.
Just my opinion.
