We will offer shipping to the UK. We ship without water so the cost will be much less than a traditional lamp. We are currently browsing options for UK distribution to make it cheaper for all of our British friends. Will keep you updated.
In making these smaller lamps they may be working out a system for larger scale production. With the big lamps they didn't need to be mass produced because of demand but the demand for these new ones will be high. Just an idea while we're throwing rumors out there lol.
Johnny Magma no longer works at MT so I doubt he will have much current info. This lamp has been promised for going on five years. At this point it is not much more than vapor ware. If you hold your breath waiting you will be a lovely shade of blue.
