Oh my. I foresee more money going out of my wallet.. If George says it's as good as if not better than L*n@ then we are all doomed to the extended overdraft?
I know he loves the L*n@ effect so this must be something very special..

I was saving for Doppelganger, then I have been seriously swayed by C0DEX V3NEFICUM, and now MIA..
Argh.. If only I hadn't foolishly squandered all my money on food and heat this month..

I wish this was announce a week or two earlier as I just bought the fallen but this is much closer to what I wanted from the fallen.

Sorry for either tempting your wallets and/or making the announcement too late. Smile

I truly believe this is one of the best effects of its type.

Each Missing In Action takes me a day to make-up.
So it is IMHO extremely reasonably priced for what it is.

I have two sets almost finished that can leave this weekend.
Then it will be middle of next week before more can go out.

The first few orders should be arriving on doorsteps next week so hopefully some independent opinions on props and effect should come in.

This reminds me of my favorite aspects of The Fallen and Espy-onage. I have peformed the Fallen and gotten a great reaction even when I screwed up and revaled the wrong soldier. I'm going to be watching this one very closely. Congrats, Stephen!

I absolutely live the idea behind this effect as it touches me very personally. My grandfather was a B-24 navigator during WWII, and when he finally was granted leave to marry my grandmother, the rest if his squadron was redeployed to the Pacific theater. En route, his plane (without him on it) crashed into a mountain during a bombing run with all crew lost, except for two whose remains were never identified or found, hence they were classified as MIA, but presumed to have perished. It was a story that I only learned about a year or so before his death, after I had joined up to serve as well. Out of six generations of my family that have served in the Armed Forces, he and I were the only ones to have seen combat and the horror and heartache that it brings. With that in mind though, I have one or two quick questions:
1) You state that it will be possible to ID the service branch that the MIA was in. Are there any names that are from the US, and if so, are they classified as US Army Air Corps, as the Aur Force (at least in the US) didn't exist as a seperate service branch until appx 1947?
2) What are the size if these files, and are they based upon actual examples of MIA files?

Greatly looking forward to these answers, as I believe that not only would this make an amazing addition to my act, but would also in a way honor those crew members that served with my grandfather who were never officially identified.
Love me or hate me, but you'll never forget me!

I have just watched the trailer. What a fantastic production, surely a nominee for The Magic Oscars if there is such a thing!

I'm away to Portugal at the end of the week.

Any orders for MIA that arrive before tomorrow evening will get sent before I leave.
Any that come in after that will have to wait until I get back on the 26th.

What will be the price after the special introductory price expires?
Magic is a vanishing Art.

This must not be Kansas anymore, Toto.

Eschew obfuscation.
