Peter,

Thank you for taking time to respond to my posting.

After reading through this thread again I am guessing that your new business model might be very similar to Magic Wagon’s.

I personally was hoping for something more exciting as far as performing is concerned rather than collecting.

Unfortunately, there is no way Tenyo Elite can win here. They have bravely taken on an incredible challenge in that they are recreating the brainchildren of a beloved, and iconic magic giant...Tenyo. There is absolutely no way that everyone will agree with Tenyo Elite's choices of effects to produce, or the materials, or the production techniques employed to manufacture them. Sadly, there is no way to make everyone happy. But, let's look at what Tenyo Elite is really trying to do...take something that we all are fans of, and fond of - Tenyo magic - and elevate it to the next level of quality...making the best better.

Yet most of us on this forum really don't know what Tenyo Elite is up against. There are real concerns here regarding budgets (even someone with a basic knowledge of business will realize this is not a venture driven by profit), production vs. demand, and most importantly, the challenges inherent in dealing with a foreign entity - from both a cultural and legal standpoint. We are talking about a small group of fans, trying to work with a major foreign manufacturer. No easy feat, and certainly nothing that can happen quickly, or easily.

I don't know if I'll be 100% satisfied with the next releases of Tenyo Elite, but I can tell you that I am 100% grateful that they had the vision to make this happen in the first place. It's far more than most of us have done. So I'll give them the support they've earned and deserve.

With Peter behind the project - and knowing the pride he puts into his work - I have faith that Tenyo Elite is in good hands. And good magic in good hands, is a very good thing.
Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.

Wizard, you hit the nail on the head!

Update, New item is well into prototype stage....ooooh I'm getting excited.

Both the next two planned releases should please a lot of people!

And I can tell you that the next release will be made of wood. I can't wait to hold it my hands!

Pierre, Unfortunately I am under contract with my partners not to reveal the items until they are ready to be released.

Hi Peter (and everyone else with an interest in this FORUM):

I appreciate your candor and relative transparency for what must be, by its nature, a secretive process.

It is great fun to second guess and hope that the next Elite item will be the "one that I really want them to make". Smile

I thought you guys were off to a great start. I agree that the lapse in time between production runs has been disappointing, but I am encouraged by the recent updates.

I look forward to the next item, whatever it is, and truth be told, I don't care what it is. What I do care about is that your venture continues into the future (at least, selfishly, for the rest of my life ;-)

At least with that thought in mind, you may eventually get around to the one Tenyo item that I (or any of us)really want you to make!

Peace, and continued success,


David

Thanks David.
Since we have restructed this company to do smaller and more limited runs, we will not be over producing (and during the start of global a recession) a mistake we made during the launch, so now releases should be a lot more frequent and closer together. Also this time around, the items are all hand crafted and will be of higher quality than the first 2 releases but in limited quantities, and will have a higher price tag than the first two releases. But will also warrant the the asking price. I think everyone will appreciate the work that will be going into our elite editions even more now.

Update, Final prototype for our next release should be in our hands next week, and once Tenyo approves we can start taking orders and go into production.

Peter.

It would be fun if you could give us 5 random production years for hints and include the actual year that the new Tenyo elite item originated from.

LOL, well I can tell you that this was one of 5 items I bought when I visited my first Magic Shop ever (Browser's Den of Magic) in Toronto, the famous late Len Cooper sold me this Tenyo item when I was a little kid. He sold me this, a penetration frame, chinese sticks, an apearing cane, and a square circle. Not sure on the exact year or exactly how old I was, but I think I was around 8 years old. And I am 38 years old now.

This item is very gimmicky compared to our first two releases. This elite version will be made compeletly of beautiful handcrafted wood. It is one of my personal all time favorite Tenyo Tricks! I have another story about it, but It would reveal too much, but will tell the story after it is released.

Guess all you want, but I will not admit to anything!

Lol. Also the next item we have planned after this, will have people going nuts for it. It is an exciting time again for Tenyo Elite.

Research time with a little detective work should help draw better conclusions for those trying to put this puzzle together. Glad to hear elite items are moving forward.

Thanks Peter... this makes it fun, we will do some math and try and figure out what it could be.
