"If you think the visual looks incredible,wait until you see and handle the gimmick! SEALED looks like real magic. Menny's a genius"
- Dynamo

SEALED 2.0™ is a new, redesigned and improved gimmick. Precision-made of strong, high quality materials and designed to last for a lifetime of use. The new gimmick is fully self-contained – NO REFILLS needed! And is compatible both with a deck of cards and a cigarette box.

Perform insanely-visual miniature card-in-window type of effects with various small and verifiable objects (signed cards, bills, coins, business cards etc.)

With the cellophane wrap pulled halfway out of the cigarette/card box, perform a visually stunning matter-through-matter miracle by causing the signed object to VISIBLY PENETRATE the hanging cellophane:

Magically toss a singed card, bill or coin, through any of the cellophane panels!

With the signed folded card resting on top of the out-jogged cellophane, cause it to VISIBLY FALL THROUGH the top panel!

Have the card or bill on a spectator's open palm and without touching it, SNATCH IT away with the hanging cellophane - The signed folded card will VISIBLY JUMP into the cellophane from the spectator's own hand!

You can shake the object about, and let the spectator verify it is indeed his/her signature on the object inside! You can hand out both the cellophane and object as a souvenir!

• Super visual effect.
• Redesigned & improved gimmick.
• Gimmick comes ready for use!
• High quality, long lasting & 100% reliable.
• Only one minute to set up!
• Fully self-contained.
• No refills!
• Use signed cards, coins, bills & more.
• Compatible with card deck & cigarette box.
• Cellophane & object are fully examinable!

I assembled the original pretty well and still couldn't get it to shoot properly. This new gimmick comes premade. that's a plus. If it is truly long lasting and works 100% of the time. Take my money.

Hallo
as you can see from my message last year in the original post of "sealed" I had redesigned and built a new gimmick entirely of non magnetic metal.
menny was immediately excited (many thanks to Penguin Magic that made possible our meeting!) and in recent months we have made some structural changes, we replaced the means of propulsion with a system that provides more power and does not need spare parts ,We refined the measures and tried various solutions.
the new gimmick is virtually forever and since the first version does not miss a beat!
I know I'm not the right person to say it ... but it is worthy of James Bond! It is gorgeous and you will be sad for not being able to show off your new toy to friends! ( it's the same for me ...!)
menny has made a new editing instructions which relate to the preparation that has been simplified without changing the versions of the trick, adding the possibility to use a packet of cigarettes instead of the cards.

It has been a pleasure working with mr. Lindenfeld and are thrilled that finally has come online and can not wait to read the new reviews!

if I can be useful for questions just ask
...and sorry for my english...!

Is there anyway to see a full performance from the start when they sign the card etc so we can see how clean if a get ready there may be before the penetration? Yeah it looks good but how logical and practical is the get ready?

what you see in the trailer is pretty much a full performance. just the part of picking a card is missed, the rest is selfcontained. ne need to force a card.

No, because you don't just come out with the cellophane half way down the box do you?

I also liked the idea of Sealed but found it very unreliable (even after constructing two gimmicks!).

Just had a chance to see the new improved gimmick at penguin (downloadable video instructions).
The new design and construction looks amazing, really really clever! and yes no refills any more!!!.
I'll let you know when it arrives. If it is reliable it will go through the roof!

I also want you to be aware of this:
I just wish they have offered this solid version earlier.
Version 1.0 should'nt have been on the market with all its flaws (material, design, problems).
It just not felt ready yet and a early troubleshooting pdf proves that to me.

It might me a idea to give a small discount to customers of version 1.0 (who were not able to use it!).
Or the option to just buy the gimmick (without DVD).
I support this great idea but I (we) don't want to feel like a beta tester.

If I got it right...your question's if is realy ready to work... if you have seen the new gimmick you understand that the forces are high in game, more than first gimmick... the "calibration" is a question of tens of millimeter on a wing position, metal wing is strong and flexible and you can do it in minutes....but is possible you don't need to do it...
when you have calibrated will be 100% reliable, I have extensively tested, the trigger is easier, the effect faster, handle is safer...

if you need more , pm me! Smile

Stupid question from me but do you use the same cellophane. I mean cellophane is fragile. Do you need to replace it often or ever?

Word of warning. The first version of this was more or less unusable. The construction was a nightmare and really not the least bit practical. I can't speak for everyone, but it was really ultimate example of video fooler that had no place in the real world. I'd be curious if a single person went in to perform the trick. Proceed with 2.0 with caution. And agree that anyone who got stuck with the non-usable first version should get a hefty discount (if not free) on 2.0. But oh what a video!

I ordered v2 as I was so impressed with the thinking behind v1 and the effect overall.

After watching the new video, the improvements to the gimmick look fantastic- well done!

I will report back how well it works when it arrives this week.

And for those complaining about v1 being a prototype and asking for a discount, etc. I bought v1, assembled it correctly, it didn't work so I sent it back to Penguin for a refund and they obliged- no questions asked. Customer service is there for a reason- so don't just bite the bullet on a faulty product.

With that said, I'm very excited about the potential of the new gimmick and can't wait to get my hands on it.

I agree.

Personally I do not think that we as magicians should suport creators/magic-shops who rushes an impractical product to the market, just to release a more practical version later. I do think people who buys the first version should be offered an apology and be given the new version for free.

A lot of video games, computer programs are often rushed to the market today, because of time limits and pressure from the publisher etc, which is annoying, but atlas they will give you a patch for free and instead of having you buy a new product, which would be unacceptable in any other market than in the magic industry.

I contacted them and got a replacment which arrived without damage.
But the second one didn't worked either because of design/construction flaws.
A part of it tends to break easily, another part will get stuck easily.
Poor materials even if assembled correctly.

Iam looking forward to V2.0 but still think a discount or the option to buy it as a single unit, would make sense.
I just wanted a gimmick that works and iam optimistic about the new one!
Lets see..

I would like to have this if it works as in the video. That's real magic. We'll see said the blind man.

So can this be clarified - as this is not shown in the trailer...
You take the deck out (with cellophane on) you take cards out etc etc. in example selection is signed and folded. You pick the box up and pull the cellophane half way down then do penetration?
Is this what happens in performance?
