Does anyone know why this didn't stay in production longer? Was is too expensive to produce? Unpopular? I think its one of Tenyo's best mechanisms but maybe production costs were high?

I also think that it is...was a great prop!

I unfortunately missed this trick when it came out.
Anyone know where I can buy one?

I paid a fairly high price for mine so its not cheap when it shows up. A used one just closed on eBay for over $50. I'm sure someone out there will part with one. Smile

I have one copy left - even in mint condition (still in shrink)! If you make me an reasonable offer we might have a deal. Where are you from? Drop me a line (PM) if you like.

This is one of the best Tenyo items ever. It is VERY easy to do, examinable and almost impossible to figure out.

I have been told that this trick has been discontinued because the production costs were too high.

I have this trick and the mechanics of this trick are indeed very special ... . Cormatches/magic patagonia discribes it as magic engineering and he is probably right!

If you are a Tenyo collector, or even if you just like easy to do magic tricks with a lot of 'impact', this is one you need to have!

Im lucky to have bought one. The secret locking device on this is sooooo clever. I did however figure it out though by fluke, but I don't think anyone else would. Just watching this work with the lid open amazes me how tenyo could build something that can do that, its so small. Wow!
