The ESCO Mardi Gras has slightly better contents in lieu of poorer rockets and is slightly better value-there are fewer wheels with just a triangle wheel and a large rebadged ESCO Razzmatazz Wheel (Bright Star wheel ESCO badge), but you do get a bit more aerial content too. The ESCO Mardi Gras just has 9 rockets as opposed to 19 of them for Bright Star Imperial.
Here is this years 2015 Bright Star Imperial, many changes abound-
Only 5 of the small barrages are included this time round, and they're ALL 19 shot, no barrage stakes are included or required,
Some new Cat 3 25m display fountains have come into it (Super Shot, a bigger Twin Happiness that's Cat 3 25m the original Twin Happiness was a box fountain under Cat 2 5m and 2xbrand new Vibrant Flowers),
The 4bar Roman bouquet has been quietly discontinued,
A 96shot Oriental Stars has made an appearance as has an 150 shot Air Raid and a return of Bright Star's Super Nova Twin Effect Wheel, otherwise it's pretty much mostly a case of "as you were" for many of the items.
Take a look for yourself......
I got this box for half RRP £64.99 which is better than the £129.99 RRP Bright Star would prefer you to pay for it. Still 50 fireworks so good value!
