    Seeing that Golden lion twitter glitter reminded me of how noisy they were, it looked like a nice quiet innocent cake but that thing was loud

    I'm drooling at my pc monitor here lol, some of my absolute favs there, Cosmic mega air bombs, and the ufo rockets to be precise. Think i need to get into collecting this old school cosmic dynasty golden lion etc.. before it all disappears. Dont know about you @ashley_ng but , i would be sat there touching them and smelling them all the time :rolleyes:. I dont know maybe its just me and fireworks, but was just something about them brands that just did it for me i can't explain it to be honest. I think it was the names and the artwork in particular, or maybe it was the captain cosmic malarkey, he was basically my idol as a kid lol. i use to always look forward the good old selection boxes and random items of mismatch my mum use to bring home for us to enjoy, oh the memories.

    Lol always loved the cosmic/cosmic group brand, grew up around a lot of cosmic, brightstar & panda which brings back a lot of memories when I look at bits of my collection, the ufo rockets are extremely loud for the size of them! Fired a couple the other day as I had a few singles as well as the 2 packs :) also fired a mega airbomb & atom bomb, was nice to see something as loud and powerful as them again after all these years :) lol

    - Astra atom bomb
    - Bright star air bomb
    - one or two rocket packs

    @ashley_ng do you mean in store at galactic? They are not online.... I was going to order the bat out of hell but when i got round to it they had all been sold!

    Its not fair.... All fireworks seem to originate from yorkshire way and most of the stuff is up there too Lol!

    @kamikersie nigel did have the bats out of hell on his website but I remember him saying he's taking them off and selling them at £5 for 2 packs in store, if I had a way of getting a couple of packs too you I would have sent you some :)
