I still think that the original triumph hasn't been topped even after

I think people will freak , walk away and get disgusted before the restoration happens ... It's cool , but I can't see much potential in this except for maybe a Haloween themed performance .

That being said , this does look cool , might get this just to see how it looks even though I might not get much performance out of this ...

Can I say I don't trust a demo where they don't show a close up of the effect?

Applies especially for Sansminds ~ However most of their releases now isn't that bad ...

Not much to see in the trailer, but am thinking of a way to do this, might have to play around with the method I have in mind. Loved the one guy, he was disgusted but liked it anyway! LOL

I think it looks really cool for a freak out effect.

Not sure what to say, but I don't think I am interested in this effect.

I don't own this (then again, this is only up for pre-orders so I guess very few people do), but 34.95?!? You can get 500 fake nails for less than $3.00. This looks like it should be a $5 download (at most).

It looks like Penguin didn't include the (IMO) idiotic blurb about TV rights in the ad copy. Does this mean that anyone that buys it from Penguin isn't bound by this (IMO) non-enforceable non-contract (IANAL, YMMV, etc.) ?

I doubt anyone would do this for TVs ...

Love the reaction. It's definitely not my style. But I may even give it a try.

I'm shocked to see this as I saw this performed in the 80s! Such an old effect!


I hope they got the original creators permission for this effect?

The Fly (1986) - David Cronenberg & Make Up Artists Chris Walas & Stephan Dupuis.
It was also already shown on TV and cinema, so I don't know how they can claim performance rights as Jeff Goldblum was the first to perform this.

Are there no original ideas left in magic? Smile

Lot of the effects that come out have some kind of history. Same ideas just different methods. For a example just look at a lot of the card tricks that come out. One example ( Card at any number ) So why would this be any different? Not that I am defending sansmind. I have yet bought one of there effects but everybody right off the bat starts bashing them. Someones buying there magic or they would be out of bizz.

So do I support the inventor or nip down to Boots the chemist and buy 36 false nails for £5 ?

Looks a bit clean...shouldn't there be blood and skin all over the place. Wouldn't any (sober) woman know what was going on ?

The comments on here about geek magic and effects like this is always interesting to me. The reactions to these kind of illusions in real life from people are crazy, they don't walk away disgusted, they walk away stunned. They can't look away. I don't know if this forum just skews really old or what the demo is but in a big city this will kill if it's a good effect. Obviously this isn't for getting bookings, it's for street and making people squeal. Personally the less people that do it the better, so it doesn't get overused.

Yes I agree. Sometimes people on here like to bash effects just because its not for them. I wont ever buy this not my kind of magic but it still looks cool to me.

Looks like a gross out version of the chocolate coin or old tearing wallpaper gag.
I like it.
