The Legacy Box by David Regal, Owen Magic Supreme(c. 2013) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
Stewart James’ Sefalaljia was a ground breaking five phase routine when it appeared in issue 69 of The Jinx December 2, 1939. It was a truly magical effect and has inspired so many imitators and rip offs over years including probably the most famous one: the Astro-Ball Cabinet by Milson-Worth. The Legacy Box continues in this vain and unlike the very popular Astro-Ball Cabinet, which is a direct copy of just one phase of Stewart James’ routine, the Legacy Box has multiple unique phases and each phases builds on the previous one. It is clearly inspired by James’ creation but David and Owen’s have created their own unique methods and approach and I’m confident that Stewart James would wholeheartedly approve.
When I watched the video on David’s site I was very intrigued by the effect – I really didn’t know how all of the different actions inside the box were happening. So I decided to plop down the cash and get one. This was a bit of a leap of faith, but I really like the Regal mind and love Owen’s construction so was pretty confident it would be fine.
When I received the box I first examined the whole thing and couldn’t see anything – I had to watch the video to see the secret. When the secret was divulged I was very happy. Not only is this box built to perfection, the method is also perfect. It cannot be performed surrounded but otherwise what you see in the demo is what you get. I don’t want to give any more away with respect to the secrecy that David has been trying to maintain for this high end item, but I could not be happier with this beautiful effect.
Effect: The box looks as clean as a whistle from all angles when it is first introduced but each time the door closes magical things happen. Firstly, the dice are rolled, then a pencil lands inside the glass, and finally a finger ring travels from one side of the cabinet to the other into the glass. If you like Sefalaljia type effects you’ll go crazy for The Legacy Box.
