New demo, posted from over at the bizarre forum:

I like the new demo. And I'm kinda get a rough idea of its working, but to respect the creator, let's not discuss about it Smile

It looks magical and I hope it's really clean. As soon as it walks, people will have this wild guessing about how it walks, then if it can be truly examined and they find nothing, it's gonna be the best effect they've ever seen Smile

Waiting on reviews. Even I won't be able to afford this but reading some reviews is nice.

I've had soem suspicions about the workings since I saw the first demo.

I think its a nice looking illusion, I just wouldn't have a place for it in my own act.

Can the bag be examined? My guess is no but might spike my interest if it can be.

I do like it. And I thought the video demo was a lot of fun. Just a wee bit out of my price range for what I am seeing it do. Congratulations on getting it finished.

The production value and script for the Little Man demo are priceless.

Mine arrived this morning and I love it too! It is very well manufacutured and there is a lot of attention to detail and some great design subtleties. This effect is open to so much potential in terms of design of the figurine and presentation aspects. It certainly is a mechanical marvel and look forward to playing with it a lot.

Yes, the bag can be examined. The clay can be examined. The freaking box the clay came in can be handled also. All of it!
The effect has been meticulously thought out and the DVD instructions are detailed and fun to watch. After practice, set up is fairly quick.
No regrets here.
Not responsible for mistakes!

Regardless of all the negativity. My feeling is this thing is going to sell out! Just watch.

Glad to hear the reviews are good. I did have a pre-order which I had to cancel but this is still an effect I've been keeping my eye on as at one point I had invested in it and the idea is brilliant. I hope to still pick it up one day and look forward to the reviews coming in.

I do want to say one thing about the comment made about there being demos posted since the start. When I pre-ordered there was no demo, which came a few months later.

Well, mine arrived yesterday and I am really, really pleased with it.
The 'workings' are ingenious and the clean-up is just perfect; it's a trick for which everyone *thinks* they know how it works but then after letting spectators examine everything it's undetectable. Truly feels magical.

One thing I will say is that I think it should be pitched a LOT darker in presentation. Suspense builds and then when the dude walks it's genuinely 'freaky'.

A Voodoo patter and some showmanship would slay people.

Very pleased and happy to recommend.

Sounds great and totally agree about the possibilities for a darker presentation. A couple of questions, firstly you mention people think they know how it works, which for me is an issue because, regardless if they're right or not, if the audience think they know the answer the magic is taken away. Do you think people only see the magic when everything's examined or is it really just to add to the effect? Secondly do you think this effect would work on stage in a relatively small room or theatre or is it only for close-up? Thanks!

I agree, let's see what those two crazy dudes say about little man.

My prediction.....

Craig will give it 64%

David will give it 78%

Who else wants to make a prediction about what scores David and Craig will give it?

Other than Angelo who helped on the project, who actually got their Little Man? Did the guys who won Little Man get theirs yet? I've heard from a couple of people now that Little Man is not shipping due to some machanical problems that need to be fixed. One person describes their situation in the thread I linked to. If you worked on the project, or have any affiliation with PHP please make that clear before giving a review. Otherwise, in the end it looks like the reviews are being planted.
