It's true that some people are serial complainers, but usually that sort of description is given to people complaining about frivolous nothings. Complaints about paying for something and never receiving it (multiple such complaints) don't fit that category and seem entirely legit.

Or do you think it's appropriate for someone to not deliver a product after being paid for it?

Ordered from him a few times. Goods always arrived. Sometimes had to wait a little longer than I thought but this happens when you order from a busy performer. He’s always responded to any emails I’ve sent.

Had the same non-delivery issues with him, as well, had to contact World Magic and David Penn, since they seem to be friends.
Yes, a dirtbag who doesn't deliver stuff you order from him, would be an accurate description.

Doric must think it's ok for someone to take your money and not send what you paid for since he lumped all these people as serial complainers. Wayne got back to my email twice but then never sent my product and never responded again. So I guess yes, I am a serial complainer because I paid for something and received nothing for my payment.

Nothing to talk about, it's a card to box like many other card to boxes. I will say the load looks clean and quick. It's just a shame that dirtball Wayne released it.

Wayne probably has grooves on his head from wearing those stupid sunglasses 24/7

I wonder when Wayne goes out in the sun if he wears another pair of sunglasses over his eyes.

I have to agree with RNK, no2ss and Pegasus here. Taking someone's money without delivering is not acceptable and always relevant to mention.

And yeah, those sunglasses make him look like a fake gangster from the 80's.

And I agree with Consultthemind when he states there are better versions of this effect in existence already.

Wayne has never stiffed me. Sorry to hear people have had that experience. I've been stiffed by other people and know how painful and frustrating that is. To me, there is never an excuse for stiffing people and I would hope Wayne would make things right by people. After all, we're talking about stupid decks of cards here, not a Tesla. So it should be very easy to send what is owed.

As for this box, I agree with some of the points people have made. Clever, yes. Necessary, no. The fact that you have to touch the box is a step backwards in my opinion. If anyone sees you do it, the magic is lost. Even if they don't know how you did it, they will correctly assume that you loaded the card when you touched the box. That's the beauty of the Mystery Box. In plain view the entire time and you never touch it until the very end when you can cleanly show your hand empty. In the hundreds of times I've done it over the last 20 years, no one has ever said, "yeah, but I didn't get to take my card out of the box." So I agree with whoever said this is solving a problem that does not exist.

I think the points that it solves a problem that doesn't exist are valid... BUT with so many box options on the market, its a nice addition as it offers something not a lot of others do. So for someone looking for one that best suits their needs, this could be it. I'd much rather see one marketed that offers something different ("necessary" or not), than just provide another clear box solution that all do the same thing, just slightly differently.

Zzzzzzzzzz.... another card to box.....

I think some of the more organic boxes (Mint Box) look less like a gimmick. Not sure who would carry around a box that looked like this but if you can justify it, more power to you.

Just my $.02

It should be called 'Real card to box with click'. Having seen it demmed to a large noisy Blackpool crowd there is an audible 'click' when the box is loaded. I was all set to buy until I heard the noise. The quest for the holy grail continues.
