Screaming Happy Fruit Bat is a great little screech rocket, much lower pitched than the classic screamer, where did you find these?

They are rare but tbh not as rare as a lot of people think - I hear all the time of people paying £10/£20 for those Standard Banshee ones ... yet I'm still able to get my hands on them at far less then that! As a result I do use a fair few every year :D

A few more odds and ends I picked up;

Final Fantasy, now that is a very very nice box... :eek:
I second that, I wish I had one.... Jealous :D
I'd sell it (and any of the other stuff) if anyone wanted to rescue it from being used, I know a lot of this stuff would have great sentimental value to collectors, but I'm not myself a collector so doesn't really have any value to me other than to send up in smoke!

If you don't choose to fire the Final Fantasy this year, it would be an item i'd be interested in. I'm not in a position to buy it this year, and you are a long way from me, but it's a box i would love to get my hands on if i was in the position to in 2018 :)

It would certainly make a great video on your YouTube channel :D

I'm interested in a few of your air bombs / colour bombs to add to my collection if your willing to part with them.

Cosmic Luna aerial selection box. I think this one is from around 1998, all aerial selection with air bombs, mines, candles, air bomb rockets and screeching rockets. This is a great selection IMO and puts the Bright Star Aerial Attack to shame. The good old days when boxes were crammed full of pyro!

Very nice, I have the later version Lunar from 2002:

However, I still prefer the Brightstar Aerial Attack box from around the same era, which was also crammed with flash powder. Air Bombs & screamer rockets. Here's a pic of mine for comparison:
