    Certainly do, remember them first coming out in
    1990, loved them, would like to find a complete pack
    for the collection, they’re out there somewhere, I don’t
    doubt it with the gems that are turning up.

    I remember the original Banshee too, blue touch and slightly larger than the Malaysian ones. Card motors rather than plastic. Yet to see a single one in preservation sadly.

    That's a lot of nautical naughties. Best let rip on Nov 5th to avoid inland or shore rescue coming out. Had mountain rescue out one night after lighting rockets on a fell side...

    If I fire any they will not be anywhere near the coast as I’m sure we are all aware of what would happen

    A few random 90s bits. Sonic boom rockets are early Menshun, when they still used the Sacred Arrow name. IMG_20201003_134537.jpg IMG_20201003_133445.jpg IMG_20201003_133431.jpg

    Don't think I've seen one of that era of Esco boxes out side of a brochure before.

    29D96B4F-9E4E-41C1-BEF1-6A2E9299C062.jpeg Brock’s blue box is all Chinese, so it’s later. Only the earlier ones had a mix of blue touch and visco. They are often tatty as the cardboard boxes were cheap and nasty.

  20. I recently added this to my collection. The Brother's manufacturer leads me to believe it is an earlier Cube item.
