I would bet that Tony Curtis would likely know the edition size of this offering.

(As I have worked through the handling for a good number of times today, I find that the mechanism is expertly designed and constructed. The "something" is SO smooth.)

The UPS guys are a bit slower in Canada... I can't wait to receive mine now that I've read all those positive comments... *SIGH*

Simon,

I think useing SS downstairs would work as long as we could get others to join us and its not just you and I down there. (not that I would mind that, but you learn more with more people). How about a short poll on who would join us in Secret Sessions on MW effects? Chime in if you would? I'm in..

Charlie


Thanks for your answer Charlie!

Yes, the purpose of creating a MW thread would be that the largest number of enthusiasts / collectors jump in the wagon! The more we are, the best it is!
So, at least the two of us Smile would be interested in such a thread in the “Secret Sessions” downstairs (Banquet Room). Here is the general description of this section:

General magic discussions that may involve the secrets and methods employed in effects. Access to this area of the Café is restricted, only members who have written 50 legitimate posts may enter.

And yes, a short "poll" is a good idea : so...the question is Smile any other are interested? Other ideas or suggestions of any kind?
Thanks!
Simon

Great effect, wonderfully smooth operation, and great quality.

This is my first MW product, so I'm not one to compare it with previous releases, but I'm very happy with it.

I have a question for those of you that have the blue phantom by Magic Wagon. I always wanted but was never able to acquire a blue phantom from Magic Wagon. How does the Mini Phantom compare to the blue phantom?

I'm on board for the separate Magic Wagon Thread- an excellent idea.

I received my Mini Phantom today- it is super cool, you guys will love this! It is a beautiful piece, and I was already thinking of other routines to do with it.

I've been an MW enthusiast for years since I heard of them through collector Andy Martin. So, count me as contributing to a new thread.
Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.

75 was the expected production run for Mini Phantom.

I just received my Mini Phantom this morning.
The quality of the apparatus is astonishing! The craftsmanship is top notch!
Despite the fact that the overall effect is similar to the original Chip-Lift, the mechanism and gimmicks involved are entirely different.The effect is much easier to perform than the original, there is no preparation involved (always ready to perform), and the chips are totally examinable at any moment (before, during, after the routine). That wasn't the case with the Supreme Magic verion. The original had some visual "convincers" that are not in play here but frankly, I prefer this Magic Wagon straightforward version by far!

I’m lucky to have more that 50 Magic Wagon pieces in my current collection. For me, this one definitely ranks above average, I would say among my top 10, along with their Blue Phantom. And these two lead to a tremendous combination!
Congratulations Magic Wagon, you did it again!

Wow Simon, that's a serious collection! Do you have a #1 favorite?

Well Rick, I'm unable to determine my absolute favorite. If I give you my answer today, it might change tomorrow. Let say that I have 10 to 12 favorites.

It's true. The crazy beauty behind collecting Magic Wagon is that the level of appreciation is so deep...sometimes I just look at the finish they put on their wood effects and I'm stunned into silence...

I agree with simcoscor's faves...they are all great...but keep in mind that Magic Wagon does a lot of partnership manufacturing with outside creators e.g. the now extinct Trickery, or our own Tony Curtis and others. These effects are the same unbelievable quality, but incorporate the thinking and engineering of supporting partners. My point...don't limit your Magic Wagon love exclusively to the effects officially released by Magic Wagon. Keep your eyes and internet connection open...

These are the effects that Magic Wagon have made exclusively for me.

Simon,I see what you mean because this is my first MW piece and has instantly become my favorite of all the magic I have on my display bookcase. It certainly will not be my last!

Hi gang...got mine in the mail on Wednesday ...I'm amazed how fast it arrived... sunday, monday, tuesday, wednesday -- holy cow! faster than if MW lived down the street from me. Love this effect. I am so addicted to their pieces I now need to sell my home to find more space for all the boxes... I just don't have enough shelf space. Where do you all put your MW pieces...along with all the other magic. I'll post of picture of my piles... in the office, on my night table, and the guest room closet and drawers all filled up. Forget the MW forum...we need an Magician Anonymous forum... but it's really too much fun, right!

Tony, the Mighty Mini Chameleon is one of my all-time favorites. It works like a dream and is so elegant and beautiful.

Magic Wagon only made 50 for me so it will not be easy to find one for sale.
