Crystal Casket (Crystal Cube) (Spring Loaded) by Ickle Pickle(c. 1996)
Even though Gary Michaels seems to really dislike this effect from Steve Bender at Ickle Pickle, not everyone feels the same way about this prop. For the price I think it is one of the best Crystal Caskets I have seen – my casket is still going strong 19 years after I purchased it. And Danny Oreleans wrote a very positive review in Genii March 1997 too. So you can’t believe all you read online 🙂
The cube is 6″x6″x6″ and each edge is covered with glitter tape which creates a 3/4″ frame around the six faces. The spring hinge is a huge improvement on some of the other versions out there and even if the release is a simple paper clip, it works perfectly decades later. It is easy to load and very easy to use.
I still love this version, and almost 20 years later the price has risen from $60 to $75 and I still think that is a great price for the effect, I wonder how Gary feels?
