    Hi all

    I have become quite an avid collector of old pyro and thought would start a thread on the boxes that I have acquired over the last 5 years, some are not super old but rare and interesting never the less.

    First are these 2 black cat boxes, I have become quite fond of the brand recently after reading the thread.

    The Puma box is sealed but would really like to open it and have a look, was supposed to get 2 but only got 1, may be able to get the other 1 at a later time.

    Next is this Millennium Pyro Bengal Lightning box, not seen much of these around, feels like a good quality box.
