Wandering Mummy (Die Wandernde Mumie) by Tony Lackner, Harold Voit

(c. 1982) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)

In the 1970’s, the German inventive powerhouse Herbert Martin Paufler created a number of versions of the Mummy.  He showed them to his friend, the prolific and creative, Tony Lackner who in 1982 went on to create one of the most popular and widespread versions of the Wandering Mummy (Die Wandernde Mumie) which was released by Harold Voit and Zauber Zentrale (and also later the Ace Place).

This was the first Wandering Mummy that I ever saw, and I was instantly smitten, like so many before and after me.

Effect: Two sarcophagi are shown. One has a mummy inside, the other does not. The story revolves around the way the Egyptians used to guard against ‘grave robbers’ which were prevalent at that time. The mummy is placed into one sarcophagus and the lid closed; When the grave robbers broke into the sarcophagus for the Pharaoh’s treasure which was always buried with him, they found nothing … and left empty-handed. The mummy was of course safe and sound in the other sarcophagus!

    A Must to have for the Mummy Fan !

    If you are like me, you are certainly a "mummy" fan. I have several different mummy sets, and I can tell you, I love this one created by the German Master Craftsman Tony Lackner.

    The first thing that really impressed me, when I opened the carrying case was the size and the weight of the props.
    The caskets are very well dimensioned and the mummy too.
    There are many hieroglyphic characters and decorations on each.
    Tony Lackner had created a very desirable magic item. You will never tire of looking and playing with these props.
    Due to the size of the caskets, you will be able to perform each move with ease, smoothness, and silence, like in an Egyptian Mastaba.

    Herbert M. Paufler has created a superb patter to go with this set.
    The story involves two strange characters: Omar & Achmed who have decided to plunder a tomb . The rest of their adventure is a funny and weird one.
    Mister Paufler has written the patter, which justifies the props and every move.

    The only thing I had to retouch a little was the carrying case, to bring a better protection to the props, but I guess that is because I love "boxing" things!

    A great Mummy set for the collector. Two thumbs up!!
