The video is not edited in any way...it really CAN look that good, but its not easy. What you see in the video IS what you can get, with lots of practice.

Not had mine either. Ironic that its called "The Vanishing" as that's what the Post office do with a lot of mail!

I'm sure it will arrive tomorrow and occupy my weekend.

Shin Lim (after all he has been through - whew!) seems to be a very talented and promising magician.

But...there is NO way I will invest personally in any of his stuff after personally getting burned a few times prior with the "best ACAAN ever" (not) and the video editing debacle.

Lets hope that this release isn't for move monkeys line Shin.

There are many other ways to do the kind of vanishes shown - so is this a step forwards or backwards?

If it is a step back, I think Shin needs to slow down with all the releases for gosh sakes. Enough already.

It's a step forward in terms of method (if the performing circumstances are right) but a step backwards in terms of practical application. For practical purposes I would go back to the Raven or similar device.

It is definitely not a new concept...its a clever USE of an existeing concept, but you will not say "omg wow...ive never seen that before!"

I wouldnt call this a WASTE of money. $30 is not horrible. If it were $50 or more, then yes, I don't think it would be worth it.

Could you be set up all day and perform it at a moment's notice?

Theoretically, yes. Once set up, you could do the effects multiple times if your careful.

a effect is either good or bad, who wants to use things that are so so in todays times, so its either worth money or not worth a penny, tell people it takes lots of time and lots of talent to make it look as good as the demo,

Few things in life are so black and white. Some people enjoy practicing magic and getting knacky things to work seamlessly.
How can another person tell ME what is good for ME? I ordered this too and I'll decide for myself. It is obviously not "no skill required"
but I could have told you that sight unseen.
