    Mathmos Lunars, not rare.

    Started by fog rider in Collecting. Last reply by MileHigh 6 hours ago. 9 Replies

    Pardon me while I gripe a bit here. It really irks me when I hear somebody say how rare their Mathmos Lunar lava lamp is. "Rare, ultra rare, one-of-a-kind" are terms that are regularly used to describe Lunars. And yet, there are 6 of them for sale on e-Bay today. Lunars are not rare, they're very common.Speaking of rare lamps, has anybody scored any truly rare lamps lately. I see that a Crestworth Princess glitter recently popped up. Cool.Continue

    New 52oz blue liquid yellow wax - emptied fluid now what?

    Started by kero48 in Problems & Questions. Last reply by kero48 on Tuesday. 12 Replies

    Hey,When I was at that Kmart a few weeks back I bought a new 52oz lava lamp, blue fluid yellow wax. Was #$10I found the blue fluid to dark for my tastes so for shits and giggles I carefully emptied out to the blue fluid only to leave the yellow wax. I used a plastic coat hanger straight portion to keep the wax in place while I poured out the fluid.I then rinsed the bottle twice with clean tape water to get the rest of the colored fluid out.I would love to have a clear fluid yellow wax lamp, so…Continue

    For those that are on a tight budget , and wish to own a color change Grande. I may have a solution.I have rebuilt the Polished base that I was using as a test rig.Due to an "Incident" I have replaced the power supply, socket and dimmer.The only thing wrong with this base, is that a small tiny section of  4 RED LED's that are dead and a few small dings from the globe that didn't wish to be in one piece any longer.... The cap seems to have took the brunt of the damage-see picsThese 3 dead RED…Continue
