Most expensive Tenyo you ever bought

Post by David DeTenyo » Wed Mar 19, 2014 4:52 pm

Perhaps a delicate question, but what was the most you ever spent on 1 Tenyo trick?

For me it was Coin Case (new in package). I payed ('only') 320 USD for it a few years ago.
Fantastic was also expensive but I can't remember what I payed for it, it was between 200 - 300 USD I think.
One of the last + 100 USD tricks I ever bought was a Super Vase A La India in slightly damaged package - that was 160 USD.

I treated myself last year to an eye of the idol. I'd been looking for one for years (that I could afford) and one popped up on eBay. I wasn't sure but when I checked the location and saw that it was in my town Colchester, literally 10mins up the road I saw it as a sign. Spooky stuff considering it could have been anywhere in the world. Plus I saved £10 on postage.
It's one of my all time favourites and the closest to actual magic I've seen in such a trick.
That was a one off tho, I normally work within a £20/30 budget.
Now you see me...

Just tell him he is lucky that you are not collecting designer handbags and shoes. :D

With a sealed Geometrick you can slide it out the back of the package without too much damage.

So it is now 2018, and the last message to this thread was posted in 2014.

Did the scenario change a lot since 2014? Did Tenyo get much more expensive since then? Is it even more difficult to find rare items nowadays?

Well, to answer the question, the most expensive Tenyo I bought was UltraTube. I paid $400. Yeah, that is a lot of money for a single trick....

I still wish to have some rare tricks such as Sidetrack, but the prices at eBay are outrageous.

Tenyo in general has gotten less expensive, except for the items everyone is chasing.

My most expensive Tenyo item was their Kuma Tubes, which retailed for $1000 in the last year they put it out, and that's how much I paid for it (new, at an out of the way magic shop in Japan where it was just sitting on the shelf).

I paid $350 for an unopened Side Track (still unopened) and I already owned one at the time, I love the trick so much I made sure I had a spare.

I’d say the magic works crystal cleaver I bought when I was 8, not because it was expensive (though relatively it was for an 8 year old!) but because it started me on my Tenyo journey and all the subsequent purchases!
Now you see me...

Nice to see this thread again. I never, ever bought anything (Tenyo- or even magic related) above the 320 USD I once paid. A Magic Wagon or two came close though.
