"Such brilliant, mad, obsessive thinking that has created spectacular effects. You are a true one off. Keep up the brilliant work!"
- Andy Nyman

"Kieron Johnson is a genius."
- Fay Presto

"A polar vortex has hit the magic world."
- Wayne Dobson

"Without doubt my favorite routine using flash paper, a brilliant idea from the brilliant mind of one of my favorite performers/creators. A charming trick that leaves the spectator with an impossibly magical souvenir that they can keep forever."
- Jamie Raven

"Since seeing Kieron's original Bob routine, I've been hooked on this plot. The addition of the cannon, more fire and now the animated character bursting through the deck makes this a complete, wild and fun routine. I use it as a table piece at weddings and corporate functions, and the reactions are electric. It's an addictive story and will stay with me."
- Steve Rowe

Stickman Bob
is no ordinary stickman. He will find your spectator's signed card in the most spectacular way, leaving them with an awesome souvenir.

A card is selected, signed, and returned to the deck. Introduce Bob, your magician stickman friend, and let the fun begin!

Bob is also a stuntman and will combine his death-defying skills to find their card.

A cannon is introduced and yes - Daredevil Bob is going to get shot out of the cannon!

The countdown starts, and Bob is shot from the cannon towards the deck. It bursts into flames.

The flames subside - Bob can be seen to have burnt his way through the box and the deck. His smoked silhouette remains are on the back of the signed card.

Stickman Bob is ideal for all types of performance -- street, close-up, even parlor and stage.

It is very easy to do, has fantastic visuals, and makes a great emotional connection. It is an effect your audience will remember, as it leaves them with their signed, burnt Bob card at the end!

You are supplied with laser cut-out burnt cards and the fantastic metal cannon for launching Bob. Use in conjunction with your own red-back Bicycle deck.

Sheets of flash paper are not supplied due to international shipping regulations, but we do provide a flash tutorial that explains everything.

For those not wishing to use fire in their performance or are too young to use flash products, we include a non-flash version using an audio sound file with countdowns in English, German, French, Spanish, Japanese, Dutch, German and Italian.

Stickman Bob is Kieron's homage to the great work of Bob Farmer, Andrew Mckinley, David Benn. The stickman drawing was inspired by Dan Harlan.

Love Kieron - but Murphy's or Penguin messed up Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 26th, 2017
My son and I had the privilege to see "Bob" at one of Kieron's live lectures here in the US. Needless to say, when we saw the trick out for sale, I wanted to snatch it up... alas, only in the UK! So when I saw that Penguin had it, I thought this would be the perfect Christmas gift for my son. Again, I was wrong. When he opened the box on Christmas morning, and all that was inside was a pencil sharpener canon (yes! a dollar store pencil sharpener!) and a handful of cards with Bob punched through it, his look of disappointment made me instantly regret the purchase. More than half of the "trick" is missing from the "kit". Yes, I know, it's my fault because there is a sentence that says they can't ship the flash paper from the UK... but doesn't Penguin sell flash paper? Can't they complete the kit here in the US? Also, there is another crucial element that is not even the flash paper that's missing - where's the card box? For $40, save your money and buy his lecture instead. You have to make most of this yourself anyway so at least with the lecture you get so much more. What a waste.

This trick is in kierons lecture. U have to make it urself, but here it now comes with almost every thing u need as flash paper can't be sent... this trick kills!!!! It's very entertaining. It's very different. I love it! I loved it more when it was only known threw the lecture as I see alot of ppl are gonna buy this one where as it being in his lecture, less ppl wld know about it... it took me a long time shopping around for a cannon... I use a Lego cannon... many antiques stores I went to to find one but started with a metal one till I found a Lego one... so that's an upside as it comes with one... it's cheaper to buy the lecture and learn there and u will see more off the wall, outside the box material from the mind of this unique crazy man... his style is very dif and unique so u may wanna get the lecture instead and make it urself. It's really not hard to make at all... It says u can use Ur own cards but I wld suggest using a mirage deck... not sure the handling and such with a normal deck but the mirage makes it sooooo easy to perform... not sure if that's explained in this product as I didn't buy it, but it is in the lecture... too bad flash paper can't be sent threw mail Cuz it's it's very important and wld be nice to have it come professionally done... (ull see what I mean when u get it)

All and all, Amazing trick! I use it in every show I perform... Sucks that more ppl are gonna be doing this one now. I really do suggest his lecture instead tho as it's cheaper and ull get sooo much more material and ideas that are over the top, even if u don't use them, it's great to see what his mind creates..

down side, it's a one off... u can't reset this instantly. U cld reset it if u go to the bathroom or something but who has time for that? And to reset, ull have to carry more things to set it up so there goes pocket space... next down side, (for me anyways as I use a mirage deck) the deck will be committed for only that trick so it takes up pocket space... if u use a normal deck, u cld take the burned cards out and continue Ur set... but agn, it's a one off so ull be going to other tables with a card box all burned and burned cards in side and I dnt see that very professional showing up to a table with a burned up deck... deff 5 stars!!! just suks that more ppl will be performing it nowthat it's being released like this:(

Has great Potential, but..... well short Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 29th, 2017
This is an awesome idea, and could be 5 stars. Easily.
But due to the fact you can’t get the flash cards needed, well. It stinks!

Now I feel the pain for those living in non-U.S. countries. Usually things are harder/expensive for them. Now I can’t get what’s needed.

It’s like getting a brand new BWM that runs on fairy 🧚‍♀️ dust.

I don’t have a color, non-laser printer.
And even if I did, I don’t feel like making up stuff.
There is someone that may be making these, but only limited.

So
If you’re able to print or buy the must needed flash cards. Then you’re golden.

Misleading for u.s. customers. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 28th, 2017
Cool concept however in order to do the trick as demo you have to be able to print card back on flash paper and u.s. flash paper is way too thin. Saturn magic can't ship thick flash paper to u.s. The presentation without f.p. is lame in my opinion. I'm working on my own handling in which I use f.p. but don't have to print on it.

GREAT TRICK BUT... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 8th, 2017
it can’tt be performed as shown in the trailer if you live in the U.S.A.

An important part of the effect depends on something made in England that can’t be imported to the States.

Perhaps I can figure out a workaround but Murphy’s should have made some arrangement to make this important item available in the U.S.!

So fun to perform! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 26th, 2018
First off if you are in an area where they cannot ship to, skip over this trick because the non flash paper version is pretty bland. Otherwise, you’re in luck! This definitely should be an add to cart, the visuals are great. I’ve done this 35 times or so and it still never gets old watching that card box burn away. Learning the best way to set it up may be a little hassle but once you get it down it will be quick. The only downside is having to buy more flash paper but still they are pretty cheap. Quit reading already, what are you waiting for? Buy it! It gets awesome reactions every time and yes, bob really does get shot out of the cannon!

Wow what a let down. You cannot do the trick as shown or as advertised. the flash paper is not available in the United States. and a certain down load file will not work it is just blank.
Very disappointed and frustrated with this whole trick.

Almost the perfect effect Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 1st, 2017
This is a great magic trick more of an effect than a trick. The only reason that I did not give it a full 5 star rating is because they should have given us way more cards. Also they should have given a stronger template as opposed to having us use a simple playing card as the template you will find that you will end up needing way more cards really quick I hope you guys are going to provide refills because I would hate to have to purchase the entire effect just to receive the few cards that you did provide other than that guy's this is one effect that you can show off to children as well as adults it is great

One of the best ways to reveal a card. Honestly this is way underrated, the possibilities are endless. Big fan of this, the reactions are way worth it.
