Hey guys,

Were excited to share with you a new effect from System 6 Magic. This is a remake and overhall of the clasic voodoo doll, but its so good you have to read what people have said about this version!

"I hated this effect until I saw this version! LOVE IT!!! This effect is a very strong close up illusion, sadly one that is often overlooked and easily dismissed by most professionals. Rogue's design of the stick man will make those naysayers think twice. It is highly detailed, looks organic, and is of superior quality. If I owned a gun I'd put it to your head and make you buy two of them!"
- DAN SPERRY


You can check it out here and PRE-ORDER today!

Should be shipping in the next week or two.

I just don't get the pre order thing, why not just put it out when its ready, these pre order things seem to be getting more and more prevalent, it seems like just a way to get your money in advance. The doll looks good, I am just against any pre order stuff. Maybe its just me ?

I never pre-order, but I do like seeing what's due to be released in the next couple of weeks.

This effect does look very good indeed.

Hey George, Devonte here, Im one of the magicians helping out behind the scenes on this release. So to answer your questions as I too hate teasers and pre-sales, The reason we are doing pre-sales is because all the dolls are hand made with extreme details. Meaning that only a certain amount will be made for the first batch in time for Halloween. Otherwise we might have been cutting the Release too close Halloween and might of not had enough time to package and ship Smile

The problem ( IMHO ) that these 'dolls" never looked good. The doll in Rogue's video looks very spooky! Perfect for Halloween, but not limited to that time of the year ( just like the Haunted key ).

Nice work on the trailer showing the doll and the effect!

I may have to pick this up. I've always been interested in this effect but never liked the straw figures.

Exactly, Magic.Maddy. I never cared for the cheap straw ones. The Rogue/System 6 doll looks the part of what you're selling to the audience.

I agree Zombie Magic...as I Wrote earlier...I've been helping to put this project together for over a year now, and I know that all the dolls will be hand made with incredible intricacy. Hate to say it as well but you get what you pay for "Just ask Joe Proper" but even so I know that they worked hard on keeping the cost down as much as possible. So my guess is that the reason why its not priced at $10. Is for the exact reason people stopped buying the $10 one. Make something cheap, and you'll get a cheap result, In my opinion the previous versions were flimsy, the straws came out and the secret gimmick" as one (Penguin magic reviewer said was "really doll too bulky and gimmick half the size of titanic." or as Dan Sperry Said "I hated this effect until I saw this version!.

Just pre-ordered as well. Would not normally have been interested in this type of thing but I have to say, it looks pretty *** cool and creepy at the same time Looking forward to getting it.

I absolutely hate pre-ordering, but this looks great and it's an effect I always use so I bit; the doll looks fantastic. Eagerly anticipating my Believe decks, too --

Six, one question before I hit order (cos' that looked freakishly cool...love the Blair Witch stick doll):

I'm not familiar with this effect so this may seem a dumb question to others, but does the doll have to be in ones hand? I have a Witches Box from Outlaw and the thought of this guy rising up from outta there makes my hair stand on end. Even if not, he'd add another level of cool as one of the objects I keep in it, so no worries either way.

Regards

I've always liked my straw version but once my wife found out the method, she forbid me from doing it. Wuss. In any event, this version looks really nice. Is the gimmick safe enough to allow spectator to put this in his/her hand?

Just ordered this.

Free shipping, if that matters to anyone. It matters to me!
