I'm not sure when these were released but I thought Il add them to the list.

1) Sixth Sense 2.5 (Although I have still not performed this to the world out there, I am still practicing it and it works pretty good. A bit over priced IMO but its good and it does the job)
2) The Extractor
3) Mental Killer by Max Krause (This thing is a gem if you have an iPhone!)

And a few more:

4) Psypher
5) Get Sharky

I can't decide between the Real Secrets trick with the obviously fake receipts, the one with the fake looking toilet paper roll, or the one with the fake looking takeout menu.

Ok so 2012 was really an exciting year for our art! There were a lot of quality products and just as many duds.

However my list is the top 3 that went into my shows and performances this year!

#1-Childsplay by Chris Congreave, Gary Jones and RSVP Magic. (I like this effect a lot and although the workings are simple, it packs a very strong punch and plays well for many venues)

#2-Knock'em Dead 2 by Peter Nardi and Alakazam Magic. (Again this is another winner for me in 2012 that I use ALL THE TIME. The instruction card idea is brilliant it makes sense and is very disarming and the spectator deals and is in control.... PERFECT PREDICTION IMO.)

#3-Flash by Chad Long. (I always loved the color changing knives just not the knives lol. This is perfect. Its commercial, easy, PACKS A HUGE PUNCH, Killer ending just absolutely brilliant.)

And above all else not really marketed tricks but LOVE the Penguin Magic Online Lectures. Learned a lot and really enjoy them... Looking forward to more...

Heres to 2013 being even bigger and better.

I agree and we are talking about 2012!!

Extractor came out in 2008 so hardly a contender

Agree with the deluxe nest of wallets (which I bought recently on the strength of the popularity of this thread).

Stealth bag has been good too, though not sure if this was a 2012 release.

The Cooler
TKO 2.0
One night I was in a hurry to get to a performance and I put my shirt on where my pants should go and I put my pants on where my shirt should go. So then during the show I had to be careful not to say, "Notice that there is nothing up my sleeves"!

How many magicians does it take to change a lightbulb?

It doesn't matter, for magicians darkness is a time for d'lite.
