Word is out that MM is offering a Visual Coins Across called Illusion Coins.

And supposedly using plastic or cheap relica dollar coins.

Now if the sets are cheap enough and the gaffs reliable... you can probably afford a few sets and use the gaffs to do other tricks. And since the coins are replica dollars you can probably have them machined for other uses too.

Strange market.

Jon,
I may take a drive to L.A. this weekend to check out the flea market at the Castle and run by Magic Apple to see what Brett's stock looks like since his merge. Hollywood Magic usually carries MM stuff so maybe I can get a peek and report back!

I can generally see MM stuff in the local shop if I'm really interested, but I've heard this one's selling for a pretty high price, which means we won't be getting in unless it's a special order. I don't think I could let that happen to my friends that come in. The demo video is on their front page. It looks horrible.

So, are the coins indeed plastic morgans?

In the review section there is a much more detailed topic. It backs up the claim that they are plastic there.

I can't understand why topics like this are started in the first place. Since you actually believe that MM is a bad thing for magic then why on earth would you start a post suggesting the potential that may exist with their products?

Strange market indeed.

Hi Magicandsoul,

Because there are 32,354 members here, some of them read these topics and avoid the bad products.

Also some of the suggestions of buying them I believe were somewhat tongue in cheek!

Kind of depends on what you mean by "you" and "bad thing for magic".

if YOU are willing to buy from folks who take from others and sell without permission, ie buy a zombie, chopcup, a digital disolve, any form of "three fly"... then you have some questions to ask yourself.

I see an opportunity to explore the market and using the coin set for other purposes.

Hi Mick,

So are these "coins" really plastic - the video clip sounds like coins (perhaps they dubbed the sounds effects on later).

What you get:

Set of plastic coins,
DVD,
CD of coins noises .....

Rofl.....CD of coin noise....

I would probably fall over dead if the instructions included playing a CD to emulate coin 'chink' noises.....

That would be an original routine in my estimation.

Kyf... hurry up and get that product out before some eTailer reads your post and offers it as an MP3 download.

Sounds of Silver

Jumbo Clunk

Miser's Hearing Aid

And bonus beats for the techo x-treme magician.

Hahaha !

How about miming a VCA with no coins and JUST the sound effects.

Whooosh! (that's one coin across)

Clink (Second coin just arrived in the other hand)

Clunk (that's all three coins across)

And no need to worry about that last coin vanish.

Just remember - you heard it here first...

Ya know... after reading that and thinking about those axtell puppets and CDs it occured...

That someone could produce a jumbo coin and then do a vent act with the character on the face (yes it would be a puppet so the mouth moves etc) using a CD.

Someone want to be the first on that one? Enjoy -JT

Kyf, there's an old story about someone doing Miser's Dream with that exact method. No coins at all, except for one backstage.

Today, just load your ipod into the bucket, and you're off.

I understand the price on this "Happy Meal" version of U3F is $125. Too much to pay for plastic (funny--"do you want paper or plastic"? It's the same for dollars and shopping bags) but once the sets get remaindered, or if you can get them in clear plastic, hmmm.
Is THAT a PALMS OF STEEL 5 Banner I see? YARRRRGH! Please visit The Magic Bakery

With plastic I imagine the sound would create the "Clack pass"!
Kyf my friend, dunno for sure what material is used but I'm hoping to see them up close and personal on my next trip to the magic shop! At the moment I'm mocking up latex molds for resin coins and maybe call em "Illustrious Cons" I mean Coins! *SMIRK*
