Anyone have anything that they can share yet about KAX 2015?
Some pics are on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid ... 112&type=1
But there is a lot more. Here is what I remember:
1. Bigger Cockatoo, with plumage on its head that can rise up.
2. Bigger parrot.
3. Boy version of the girl puppet that had braces. (no braces on the boy) They are brother and sister.
4. New type of rod arm that allows the puppet to do the wilting flower or breakaway wand trick. Possibly many other tricks will be suggested to go with it as well.
5. Toxic Box. The first one in production was auctioned off and brought $700. It is a large box, with a monster puppet inside. The box is held on both sides (apparently) by the ventriloquists' arms. Lots of prop opportunities for the puppet to grab from the box. Think GIANT rabbit in the hat.
6. Virtual Scenery. This got a standing ovation. Turns your show into a movie. It really was awesome! It is a backdrop set up using rear screen projection and hiding spots for puppets, plus a projector.
7. Big mouth baby puppet. Wait for the pic. I don't want to spoil the surprise.
All will be big sellers.
