I like the attitude Jay.

It was probably some disgruntled goth 'Mind Fake' youth, that was jealous that you already had TA, and they either hadn't shoveled enough driveways to buy it or made the mistake of getting it shipped Parcel Post.


I laughed!! Thanks for that! Smile

This set is so much better (is that even possible???) the second time through!
I'm betting it will be even better the 200th time through!

Thales, (and anyone else)

Use lemon oil...use a sock...make it oily...rub it on the box...be careful around that certain area on the top...let the oil sit for a bit...spray windex (any window cleaner)...let it sit for a minute...wipe it all off...

Also I believe there is a product called Finish Feeder...once a year for this stuff will keep it looking real nice! FF is really stinky so use it in a well ventilated area...it's not dangerous, just stinky.

I stress again to be careful around the logo on top of the box...oh and for sure do not put ANYTHING on the autograph! Just do the out side of the box.

Hope this is helpful to someone...

Well, the mail came, and still no TA. When it wasn't here Wednesday or Thursday, I was kicking myself for not spending the extra on shipping, but now I am just defeated. I know, after waiting years for the set to come out, and then waiting over a month for the release, a few extra days shouldn't matter. But, knowing that I COULD have had it by now really makes it worse. Oh well. At least I know it will be here Monday.

I am #82 BTW...for those keeping track...I used parcel shipping...mine went out last Friday as well.

Glad you could finally got your set Nathan. My set number is 108 and I ordered a day after you, on Dec. 11th. Now I am kicking myself for not ordering sooner and getting one of the much prized two digit sets. Oh well, at least I still have the best set of magic DVDs ever made. Plus I can always remove the "8" and make mine look like #10! (just kidding)

And Nathan what did your boss say is the best way to care for these boxes?


You don't watch Lost or you would know the power inside the 108.
I would have been the happiest guy alive to receive the number 108 on the PH set.
But I have not received mine yet, so maybe it is number 4 8 15 16 23 42 and I don't know it.
Sigh, when will he arrive? Smile

Dave, who just noticed he's referring to the set as "he" instead of "it"

Are ours being shipped through the USPS? Is there a chance on getting it on Saturday?
Haven't gotten home to see if mine has come ( but my hopes are not high). Just talked to my wife, but didn't ask her (guess I wanted to keep what little hope I still have alive for another hour).

I try not to ask my wife if any packages come in, sore subject.
But I am hopeful that it came in today, or by tomorrow.

Go USPS!
After much soul searching about a signature, I decided not to have one.

Thanks for the reviews Jay. You the man! Smile


I didn't get it before the weekend which kinda sucks. But we've got the vietnamese new year festival happening for a couple of days, which is really fun (so many cute chicks wandering around, I'm loving it!)


I pray mine comes on Monday. But I'm fearful it's going to be so good, that it'll force me to either take time off work or deprive myself of much needed sleep... Possibly even a combination of both? Smile

Wait, do packages from USPS not come on Saturday? If they don't deliver then, let's hope it comes really, really early Monday.

USPS delivers packages on Saturday. I've gotten plenty of magic packages on Saturdays

I made it through all 9 discs as of about 4AM last night. It was a crazy, thought provoking, and 100% enjoyable experience. I hunted down most of the cookies. I think there is still one lone one I cant find.

Through the past year or two I have been telling myself that I really should learn at least a few non-card effects. Well, this appears to be my answer. Don't get me wrong. The card material here is definitely killer and I will be using it a lot too.

Water trap, Unstable Label, Muscle Bend, Belly Button, Tensgrity, routines with the pen are all going to be things I will work on for sure. I'm sure there are others as well.

I will say this in closing. There were quite a few effects that completely fried me when I watched the performance. I watched a few of them multiple times before I watched the explanation just because they made me giddy. This is the most money I have ever spent in a single shot and I really do think its worth a lot more.

Don't buy it though. I don't want everyone doing this stuff for purely selfish reasons Smile

Nope...no luck for me. Smile

Nathan, your set was shipped Parcel; right?

Can you confirm that is came USPS?

If so, there is still hope for a Saturday delivery.

Ripped and Fryed literally confused the heck outta me. So awesome, I watched it so many times in a row and was astonished every single time, Jason stated it right- this is fun to just practice and see it in the mirror.
