Oozing Goo - The Lava Lamp Syndicate

A completely new lamp is being launched on the 2nd Nov. 

Can't link the picture sorry. Won't let me.

But looks die cast, and possibly looking at the curvature it might be taking an astro bottle. 

And first 100 out the window. Now a lottery of all the orders placed on the same day. Seems irrelevant to still call it first 100 when it isn't. 

What are your thoughts on what it might be?

I know what you mean lol, although it didn't come to mind at once, until you pointed it out haha!

Oh god...

uhm...

well...

My first impression was "hey this is kinda cool, I quite like the glass!", and then I realised what it reminded me of... and now I can't unsee it.  I've gone from "100% buy" to "I might actually pass on this one...".  I truly can't decide.

Someone in a comment chain likened the base to an old ashtray which admittedly I’m now struggling to see past. 



Don’t know if that’s what people are talking about, or perhaps something more rude :- |

I saw the ashtray first I have to say. For the other thing it looks like, I'd better not write on an open forum, I didn't see it at first but I do now lol.

I apologise Susan! :(

Still bought one though!  I ended up going for the black/plum as I liked the clean look.  I'll have to ratch around in my storage to see if I have any other clear telstar bottles I've forgotten about as I think the clear looks great with the glass.  I think there's christmas potential in this design ;)  I can personalise this!  Quite excited now despite my initial reservations :P

Haha, no worries, it's given me a good laugh anyway :)  If I was buying one I'd have gone for the clear and plum/black myself.

Has anyone had the email to confirm they have secured a First 100 yet? 

I havent.

I don' think we did last time did we?  Just thought I just found out when I opened the box, but then my memory is horrific so I could be wrong

EDIT: "We will use a generator to randomly pick 100 orders and notify all who have been awarded a FIRST100 by noon the next day. "

Missed that part

Nope, I haven't.  Oh well.


Mathmos Instagram & Twitter accounts stated this:

“Everyone who orders an Evo before midnight tonight goes into a draw for one of the etched limited edition FIRST100 Evo lava lamps. You will be notified via email by 5pm (GMT) on 3rd November if you have secured a FIRST100”

They enter you into a draw now, it wasn’t first come first served on this First 100

Nope, not a sausage.

That's funny, their website says noon.

I have actually wondered if they have a system to stop peole exploiting this in place - there would be nothing stopping someone placing 50 orders if they wished and then returning every one that wasn't First 100 (apart from having cash on hand of course).  They'd have been better off adding a caveat of "only one per household" or whatever.

Doesn't bother me anyway. First 100s are just a novelty thing. I don't hold mine in any special regard or value. Sales of first 100s on ebay have been very flat. People just aren't bothered.

It's just a "look what I've got thing".
