Haha, they totally need to have that song "Big Cytron" from Nurse Witch Komugi playing over the PA system as they're doing the transformation.

Let's see him make the trains fly and turn into the arms... Very Happy

Franz Harary sounds like an interesting illusionist. Mabey the magician me and my family went to see perform on stage years ago was probably him because I remember seeing that familiar face. He was so cool. He appeared from a box, he had things in an iron madien like object (ecspecially one of his assistants), he made people change from person to person in a machine that can turn and turn, and he had one of the children in the audiance on a guillotine but the blade of it only landed on the wooden part instead of the kid's head. He must be an awesome guy.

Uh, hmm... While the idea of a real "Big Cytron" sounds really cool, how exactly can they do this with a mere budget of 16K? Something like this sounds like it would cost millions or billions...

Edit: Uh, ya. I guess this is an illusion. Even though the magician part may make it obvious, the article fails to mention this like the original source did...
