 APPEARING HELICOPTER
OUELETT / VANBURCH

This is the original. It was created by Kirby VanBurch and Gary Ouelett for Worlds Greatest Magic 4 on NBC. It was designed to be the largest and fastest stage illusion in the world and it remains so today. This is the best large object appearance in the magic business. It has been replicated and copied but never matched. No other Illusion has such spectacular marketing and merchandising benefits. This Illusion will get you booked and will sells tickets. It is in good working condition but needs some minor touch up work. The complexity of the Illusion makes it difficult to say much more in this description. More details will be available to serious inquiries (potential buyers).

DEATH CRANE
DAVID MENDOZA

This illusion was built by David Mendoza
of Show FX it originally cost $90,000
The illusion is a modular crane that can be extended from 20 feet to 30 feet and at the full extension of 40 feet in length. The Illusion is made out of aluminum and is very light weight considering it's size . Effect: Magician is shackled in a kneeling position at the base of the crane with his arms locked and shackled to the eye bolts on both sides. Then assistants cover the performer with a cloth while his hands shackled are still visible. The crane is turned on and the blades make its decent to the performer. When the blades are half way down the crane to the performer, the cloth is lifted and he is still there. Then they start to spin and turn out of control. Finally the blades cut through the cloth and the performer vanishes and reappears in the back of the house. The crane is a technological marvel with a full control console and an isolated safety shut off. The crane is able to lift and lower remotely by the console.
The illusion comes apart and packs virtually flat for shipping.

The effect is that a lady is penetrated by 24 tubular light-bulbs. The front panel is removed showing the girl, with the light-bulbs penetrating her. Very strong effect. Comes with wood shipping crate (with 2 sets of castors so the crate can be wheeled upright or on its back).

 SULTANS CABINET
LE GRANDE DAVID

Le Grand David: Sultans Cabinet Illusion (aka - Things That Go Bump): This is probably the best paint job of any cabinet illusion I have ever seen. It is a genuine piece of magic history.
I picked it up earlier this year in hopes top include in the spring version of the show, but the concept was revised and no longer can use it in the production. This is well built and painted by the famed Le Grand David Shoppe. This is a high quality and durable illusion for years of performances. It had to be because it has been in a thousand performances...so far.
Breaks down for travelling. Three “Bump” cloths included.

 PHANTOM CAGE
CHALET MAGIC

Works great but shows wear and needs refurbishing.
There is a hole cut out in the back of the box (note photo) where a "wringer" used to be attached. This has since been covered up with foam core board. The base and cage break down into separate cases. The cases are very old with significant wear. But all-in-all, a great illusion that will serve the right illusionist well, especially with some refurbishing. The cage panels come in a plastic case, and the base comes in a wooden crate on casters, which has a large hole in the bottom (note photo of case). This could be patched for shipping.

 DANCING HANKY
BILL SMITH MAGIC VENTURES

This is the same version invented by Ralph Adams and
used by Lance Burton, Harry Blackstone and Doug Henning.
The prop includes a beautiful gold table with a real glass bottle on top.
EFFECT: In the beginning the magician commands the Handkerchief to life. The Hanky dances around inside of the bottle, then jumps in and out of the glass bottle at your command. To the surprise of the Magician, the Hanky then takes on a life of its own and becomes Defiant and Mischievous. The Magician tries unsuccessfully to control the Hanky, locking the Hanky in the bottle by plugging the top of the bottle with a large cork, but the Hanky, full of personality pops the cork and spirits up out of the bottle to dance in the Magician hand and taunt him. Next, a second Hanky of a different color jumps into the action for more fun and mayhem. Both Hankies end up in the bottle together where they playfully wrap around each other and fall in love. The Kicker for the effect is that the two Hankies pop the cork, jump out of the bottle where they are followed by half a dozen baby hankies of different colors as they hop off stage to the delight of the audience. Truly an amazing FUN FUN FUN Illusion. This is a personality piece that builds audience rapport!

 DOUBLE POLE
BED LEVITATION
ENTERTAINMENT DESIGN FABRICATION

"ONE OF A KIND"

Built by Entertainment Design & Fabrication
Jim Steinmeyer Pole Levitation rights paid $4,000
Pendragon float out in front of Poles rights included in
original purchase price. Total original purchase price $32,500
Effect: A beautiful ornate bed is seen on stage. The magician and assistant sit on the bed ( one on each side ) with legs crossed. They float up ( pole Levi style ) then they float out in front of the Poles ( Pendragon Style ). Two independent controllers control each persons levitating movements. Each person can levitate all the way up past the top bannister poles. Also each performer can levitate simultaneously independent at any height from the other performer. The Harnesses come up from the bed and rise up to each performer and after the illusion they retract back into the bed. This is the only Pole levitation in existence with that upgrade. The headboard and the footboard are removable so it could look more like an Ultra Lounge Style bed. Both pole mechanisms are engineered to hold 225 lbs ! The bed is primed and can be painted any color. The bed skirt dressing is not pictured.
A one of a kind Illusion
that has never been used !

 TOMMY WONDER
RING WATCH AND WALLET
For those who love exclusivity, few will ever do it simply because they won't find the apparatus. As was typical of so many of Tommy Wonder's mechanical effects, it was exquisitely engineered and designed and only a very skilled craftsman could ever really make this prop correctly.

This set being virtually hand made and fitted, it is a Fabulous outfit, perfectly engineered and exquisitely built with absolutely no expense spared. All welds have been laser welded, includes a fully adjustable custom harness and custom improved locking reel. Also includes the gimmicked Quartz Dress Watch with Money Gimmick and matching Quartz dress watch, ring, special envelopes to get you started, and a special lambskin black leather wallet that even has the thumb notch as specified in Tommy Wonders fantastic 'Books of Wonder'.

This is an opportunity of a lifetime to own this classic piece of
Tommy Wonder magic! The picture shows a case which is not
included. The picture is of an opened prop so you can see the items. The one that the winning bidder will get is

 SPEARED AND SHEARED
DAVID ROBINSON

This is an illusion that is based on the hiding principal of the Bo Staff illusion, but it is much easier for assistant to get in position. Prop is owned by illusionist "Psycho Jack" that is on this season of America's Got Talent". Note: In this illusion the girl enters in a trap door on top. All the 4 side doors are closed and she enters the box. Magician then takes a blade and divides the box in half. At this point you can open 2 doors on one end to show it empty but keep the other doors shut. Then close the doors and pull the blade almost all the way out, pause, then push the blade back down and open the 2 doors on the other end. You are doing this for laughs like in a Die Box trick. You can do this a couple of times for fun. Audience thinks the girl keeps moving from one side to the other. Then you keep 2 doors on one end open and you guide 2 wooden spears into the box, through holes in the blade and out the other end of the box. You rotate the illusion for applause. Then you finally open the 2 remaining doors to show the girl has completely vanished. Process is reversed and she comes out unharmed. A costume change would be a great touch for this illusion. Also note: Top even has a hand hole that the girl can wave out at some point when she first enters box. Illusion is brand new, super deceptive and can hold a thin girl that is about 5 foot 5. Prop is built like a tank. Cabinet does not break apart but the 2 leg units do unbolt from the table.

MIRROR CUBE AND CASE
PETER LOUGHRAN

This is a VERY deceptive mirror cube used to produce or vanish two small assistants or one large person. It's very high quality and construction made for travel, easy to assemble, and made to look like an innocent packing crate during the show.
I had an side made so after the vanish, it could be removed to show the cube was indeed empty as the assistants appeared elsewhere. Extra heavy duty castors were added for ease of movement. I can not stress the level of construction or deception here. Unfortunately, it was never used once as my appearance had to be postponed. It was built for my television appearances and is large. About 40" square. The cost of construction was around $2,000 and $900 custom build case in great condition. It was custom built for this illusion and as you can see, everything packs in perfectly. I need to make room in my storage area for some new items.

Includes Muscle Maker machine, sweat bands, muscle forearm, signage, all electronics, smoke juice, instructional DVD and custom padded poly fiber road case measuring approx 21 x 14 x 14 inches.

This is a complete comedy illusionette with all the bells and whistles you need for big time reactions! The performer begins by explaining to the audience, that as a magician, one doesn't have to go to the gym to get big time muscles. He then shows the audience a machine with the words "MUSCLE MAKER" on front. Magician places his entire forearm in the device and turns the machine on. A green light comes on along with the sound of a machine being activated. After a few seconds the magician removes his arm from the machine, revealing that his forearm has grown more than double in muscle size (think Popeye arms) After a few moments of strutting his newly stacked arm, the magician reveals that its just a fake muscular sleeve over his real arm. Attempting to try again for real, magician places his arm in the machine again and turns it on. This time, the machine starts emitting smoke from the side, then a flash of fire, followed by a piercing alarm and a flashing light. During the chaos, the word "MAKER" falls off front leaving words "MUSCLE REDUCER". He franticly shuts machine completely off and opens the doors revealing the middle section of his forearm has completely vanished! The audience can see clear through the front and out the back of the machine! In an effort to recover, he produces a sign to cover over the word "REDUCER" making the front of the machine now read "MUSCLE FIXER". For the last time, he turns the unit on and after a few seconds, he removes his arm showing that it has returned back to normal size! Special micro smoke machine creates a harmless, odorless vapor. Eight Alkaline AA batteries power the unit for many performances.
