This is essentially a miniature illusion; kind of like the classic Blue Phantom with Casino Chips, but even better!

A small pedestal, a brass tube with a lid and seven poker chips, six black and one red are displayed. The performer shows the tube empty and then spreads the chips on the table showing them to be solid and separate chips. He then places the stack of poker chips into the tube with the red one at the bottom and then places the lid on. He then snaps his fingers and lifts off the tube, and the red chip is now seen to be second from the bottom of the stack! This is repeated until the red chip mysteriously rises all the way to the top!

Please note that the casino chips can be shown to be all solid and separate immediately after each and every transposition!

This is a great effect with a clever method which of course is completely mechanical in operation.

Mini Phantom measures approximately 8.5cms square by 7.5cms high and is completely hand-crafted using natural aged teak wood and metal with an antique brass finish.

I will post the price and photos shortly.

Looks like it's time to open the wallet again.
Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.

Tony is this a MW produced effect available from you or is it a MW item?

I love the fact that there is no center rod. This really hammers the illusion home that the chips are separate from one another.
This looks to be classic Magic Wagon. Like magringo, I gave myself a Father's Day gift...and with MW's light-speed shipping, I may get it today! Smile

I always wonder how many they actually manufacture?

100? 50?

But judging from the popularity of their Blue Phantom, I can see why this sold out so quickly.

Guessing total run 40 to 50 with maybe 6 going to Curtis and 6 possibly going to Stevens, since they sometimes have the new releases (but not the last one for some reason). How about all those that bought one chime in here so a better guesstimate can be made.

MW has had a quite the steady flow of new releases this year. They are a great company to do business with who will always have me as a dedicated customer. Thanks MW!

I bought one. I'll bet 50 is a good guess. Why on earth don't they make more? I'd love to find a MW Blue Phantom.
