Re: Tenyo 2017 first impressions

The puck for "Psycho Gravity" is about 1.5 inches in diameter. I'm actually having some trouble getting it to stop in the desired spot. I did see the inventor do it in Tokyo last week and it looked fantastic so am encouraged to continue working on it. "Water Crystal" also has a ...

Re: Tenyo 2017 first impressions

I can see what Richard is saying. I remember last years previews and I bagged on 'Ghost Camera' pretty hard. I would later eat my words as that's my favorite trick of the 2016 line. But then again, it's going to be a bit before we all get our hands on the new Tenyo goodies. And speculation and discu...

Re: New Tenyo line for 2017!

The new lineup looks interesting. I like the puzzle, mainly because it's extremely different than the other 3 tricks.

Other than that, 'Psycho Gravity', to me, seems like it would be the best performance piece.

I figured that the Anna & Elsa visit get you more time since the visit for them is still done by a 'first come, first served' fast-pass system. I'll have to research it a bit further. But if the time is significantly longer than the quick camera opportunity. Then Shrinking Pen it is! Thank you.
