FaceShifter (Blue) Review

Official Review

FaceShifter is a visual, two card transposition that looks quite magical. Two cards are shown: a spot card and a face card. One goes on the table or on the assistant’s hand. The other is shown by the performer. A snap of the fingers or a magical pass and they have transposed. If you watch the trailer, it looks just like it's shown.

The kit includes the instructional DVD, a gimmick using Bicycle Rider Backs and a small supply of materials to make additional gimmicks. The gimmick isn’t brand new and the creators recognize this. The credit section states that the gimmick has been used before but not by whom. One place I am aware of is “Twizted” by Eric Jones which was in turn based on a Mark Mason product. The difference is that FaceShifter is face-up while Twizted is more or less face-down.

On the DVD you learn four effects: two transpositions, a version of the Biddle trick and 4-Fly routine. All make good use of the gimmick. The added feature of the Troubleshooting section is a nice touch. The gimmick will eventually wear out. By following the instructions, you can easily replace it.

If you want to add a bit of visual magic to your routines, then FaceShifter is a solid contender.

FaceShifter is an impossible two card transpo that you can easily carry with you anywhere.

It is a jaw-dropping effect that is easy to perform and resets instantly.
