    Do any Golden Lion fans know what the large candle laid on its side in the middle of this photograph is? Never seen it before and it's not in any of the brochures I have. Suspect it's a 1998 only special (not in 97 or 99 catalogues, don't have the 98 one).
    Poor photo but it's a scan I assume, pre digital.
     
  3. Big Cosmic & Golden Lion boxes. The Voyager cost £150 in 1998, the Explorer £100 in 1999 and the Lion box £85 in around 2005 (must have been an early packed box as contains many old stock items). Sorry for the photo quality, storage is dimly lit and my phone camera is full of dust, I will get some better photos one day when I have more time. The Voyager box is missing a couple of cakes, Star Blitz Blazer/Barrage, Space Alien & Meteorite but they have eluded me so far! image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg
    Just need to find the Cosmic Universe & Apollo boxes now, they must be out there somewhere! Anyone? Please....

    Interesting ... Didn't know the early ones came with a cone top. The latest ones (or at least I think they were the latest ones) did too.
     
  10. Still got a pack of the Genesis Candles,the one with 4 in.
     
  11. Some mixed brands in there :)

  14. I had a Three Blind Mice but the top paper was ripped so I fired it. It sort of worked but was a bit rubbish! Nice idea though
     
  15. my favourite was the cosmic mega air bombs ,great stuff . i fired three mild mice before not very good .

    Agreed on both counts. As daft as it may sound, I can't remember 100% whether I've used a three blind mice in person or whether it was a video I saw, (I fire that much I forget sometimes, ha!) but it didn't seem very good, I'm not sure anyone who didn't know what it was would grasp the tune it was trying to whistle. Wish I could get my hands on more Mega Air Bombs though ... Only got one left for next season.

  18. Several of my videos from the last few years show Three Blind Mice in action,it made me laugh anyway!,does anyone remember a small fountain imported by Esco called "The Sound of Music",it looked like a small rank of organ pipes,each one supposedly playing each note of the musical scale in ascending order,the lowest note first,the first 5 were o.k. but the last two tubes were so small nothing happened!
