Say what you will folks, but I believe TUNNEL OF DARKNESS to be the most diabolical Tenyo effect ever created. The fact that you can shed light into the tunnel's darkness is unreal. Then look at the dice, nuts.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-UdbTRUsjm4

Granted Magic Patagonia makes the effect look spectacular, but for magic like this to be mass produced, it's amazing if you stop and think about it.

EXCALIBUR, difficult to make work or not (oil), insane looking when done well. I'm pretty impressed by BARE BONES as well.

It's obvious these effects made Tenyo, TENYO, but it's crazy to me that these effects kill many effects costing thousands of dollars. So much for not doing plastic magic.

Tenyo fan for life.

-Sorry but for tunnel of darness you can't shed light into the tunnel's darkness lol It's faking video angles **** ....

-Excalibur works great but only on video ... because it make a lot of NOISE in the real life.

-Bare bones is just perfect one, nice trick in all situations.

My votes for:

As apparatus: Mystery China Box, Bird Watcher.
As magic: Fortune Donut (I could have lived for 1000 years and never been able to figure it out!!!).

Hey Nicolino,True nuff about Mobile Illusion. I think the part that really goes over well is the imstant restore just a second after the signature is complete.

I agree with everything said and would like to add Twister, Ultra Tube, Mirage and Billscape - four tricks I couldn't figure out after seeing Cormatches perform them Smile The 'technique' used in Mirage still is kind of a mistery/puzzle to me, I'd love to open it and see how it works but then again it's worth a bit too much nowdays I'm afraid Smile

Thanx for the info about Mirage. Always thought it looked a little too bulky for my liking. To be included in with the other high-caliber illusions means I need to re-assess. Also wanted to thank you for leaving comments about Diminishing Cards review. I was a little slow in making the identity connection. Your Ultra Tube plays big in Canada. Did the Canadian coins ever aid in (forget which Tenyo) resolving the glitch problem?

For me the best genuine tricks are for example:

1-Tricky business and Midas machine and mobile illusion : Succeed to make an very very strong impact with a very simple material ( tricky business) or with two pieces of plastic ( midas )is so impressive ! this shows the expertise of Tenyo.
2 - Mystery triangle is very good example of improving old easy to figure out trick to something that returns the brain.
3 - Prison box, impossible to understand before buy the trick.
4 - Magician match box, confined cube, trisector, twister, crystal pyramid, side track are ver good micro mechanisms and ingenius tricks.
5-Transpa vision is very simple but effective and Match stick is very very very clever too.
6- And for sure Mirage (i don't know how it work, gimmick extremely impressive), Diabolicus etc
7- Floating lady and Animation frame, or how to deceive the public with clever idea.

Yes, Prison Box...I almost forgot about it! Another winner by AC!
However, I still don't think it's examinable - my friend figured out something odd the second I handed her the item....

I would agree with many of the above tricks such as Billscape, Midas Machine and Sidetrack. I would add Invisible Zone which is also a great illusion.
Also some of their card tricks such as Sandwich Platter and Magic Painting.

I would add some of the optical effect too like 4D Surprise. They're just so cool.
Ok, I'll meet you at the place near the thing where we went that time.

yes...of course...Mirage!!!...great apparatus!!!...I had forgot this one...
As you mentioned is one of the few effects (maybe the only one???) that is a black box...after reading the instructions you know how it works...but you don't know exactly how works the internal mechanism...agree that is a mystery...somebody has acces to an X ray machine??? Smile

Maybe its just me...but confined cubes is wonderful in my opinion.

I have another reason for liking this trick

I had a problem when one of the cubes became discoloured, making the trick impossible to perform. 1 email to tenyo, and 3 days later a new cube arrives in the post. Suddenly after 1 year of not being able to perform this trick, I could use it again. Like discovering it from new again.

Tenyo have excellent customer service.

I always wonder if Tenyo is aware of the blog I created. I'm always afraid they hate my rating system not always nice, so I've never sent a mail to prevent them ^^
