PENGUIN Currently only has the RED gimmick and the COMBO pack available which gives you a red ond a blue. They told me they do not have the blue in stock at the moment. Anyone know where I can purchase a blue gimmick TODAY? I WANT THIS!

Just ordered mine today - can't wait to play with it! Here's an idea to play with....remember the black hole bugs bunny used (or was it the roadrunner?) anyway...have someone draw a dime-sized black hole on the face of a card, do the DT and voila....then hand it back to them and let them have their "moment of astonishment." I also like the "heat" idea, too.

I think I could care less about the Gregory Wilson throwaway.

I have now performed this 20 times, gosh that's excessive.

I've done 10 built up performances of this and then 10 performances of throwaways, nothing beats the built up version of it. I have a couple jokes and patter along the way that really get this to work. It really deserves a presentation.

Well the combo pack is officially sold out as well.

Apparently blue is more popular than red as the red is the only version left in stock, at least at Penguin.

I wanted blue dang it!

Kaliix-

From what I was told by penguin is that they never even received the BLUE in stock at all. They only got the RED and the COMBO pack. They too, are waiting for the BLUE to come in.

On these types of gimmicks that match either red or blue backs, it seems that the dealers have finally started to routinely offer these in a combo pack for a reduced price.
I am happy to see this and have always thought it should be done. I am certain it has been done in the past but it seemed to be fairly rare.
That way you are ready to go regardless of deck color. I buy bricks of Bicycles at Costco and they come with red and blue so I use both interchangeably.
I wish Extractor had had this option, or if it did I never saw it. I got a blue Extractor which is all that seems to be available now.
I know there are instructions on the DVD to change the box, but I want 2 of them so would have to buy another anyway and then make it up in red.
I would rather just buy a red one already made.
I just ordered the STC combo pack from Penguin a couple days ago and it has shipped so perhaps I got the last one.
Can't wait to get it as this has gotten such rave reviews.

Peter Nardi, any red boxes available for Extractor?
Thanks,
Bill

I asked for Penguin to send me blue this morning, and I watched the video of them packaging my STC and it sure looked blue to me (the guy with the white gloves even pointed out the blue sticker on the front of the packaging), so they probably got more in. I specifically asked for blue prior to confirming payment, which is what they told me to do several days ago, and it seems to have worked Smile If it comes to me in red, I'll let you guys know, but I feel confident it will be blue.

It could be noted that the standard wide-body Sharpie is a great fit for this- the thinner fine-point Sharpie does not have the girth to hold the card.

If you use one of the many available handmade wooden wands (which usually taper wider from the tip), a great effect can be had by using the wand in lieu of the Sharpie. Angle management is much easier due to the wand going farther through the card. A great effect!


I have no problem with a fine point sharpie?

Peter,
Does this apply to Extractor as well, or only STC?
Thanks,
Bill

It would be churlish, having got it today, not to give a big thumbs up.

Alakazam x (Bromley+Nardi) = Great Magic.

Well done fellas. Great service from Alakazam as ever.

Received my combo pack STC today, and all I can say is...WOW!!!
I've been purchasing magic effects for over 40 years.
I've bought so many gimmicks I lost count long ago. Every thing from large scale illusions to Todd Lassen coins.
But this just may be the most well-made, most precision, most deceptive, and smoothest working gimmick I have ever seen in my life!
Both the red and blue look equally perfect.
I haven't watched the DVD yet, but even if one wasn't included I would still feel like I received way more than my money's worth.
I'm so glad I got the combo set. I may still buy another for back-up.
I am very rarely this over the moon about a product but it really is that good IMHO.
Just so you know, I am generally a pretty harsh critic of gimmicks like this, and I am not affiliated with Peter Nardi, Rob Bromley, Alakazam magic, or anyone involved with this product.
If this thing holds up, and it looks like it definitely will beyond any reasonable expectation (but it is made out of card stock after all) then I may have to vote for it as my absolute favorite magic gimmick of all time. I honestly don't care if my spectators hate it, I LOVE it. This is WAY too cool.
Thanks Peter and Rob, I like most all of your effects, but this one was a grand slam in the bottom of the ninth! (for the Brits and others who may not understand that expression, it means it's extraordinary.)
Whew, can't believe I just gushed so much praise on this. That is out of character for me. Alright then, I took a deep breath, so now I will reiterate and say that it's...not bad.
Bill

I will now repeat the cliche that I was certain I never would.
