Yea I have seen it - its a lunar at a cheap start price, I estimate it will go for 200-300 quid guessing on the start bid, the interest its already had and the fact that there is time remaining for the bidding war

Its a ok lunar, ok condition but the pink / vilote colour combo is very much average for a lunar so that probably make it sell for top dollar.

if it goes for 200-300 then someone will get a bargain cos lunars are going up in price as they do at this time of year. i reckon it will meet about 400 - been looking to sell one for a few years and the last 2 or 3 that have been on ebay havent sold as the starting price was 500!! will look at bidding myself

 

I think to be honest when setting your sights on a lunar you have to work out exactly what you want and how your going to get it and then just save up.

For example I would love a lunar but I don't have the cash at the minuet. - When I do I would work out what I want for the colour combo and get a quote form Mathmos for it - that ensures I get exactly what I want and I know it will be a new quality fill. I would then put a budget on the lunar its self (500-600 quid) and find one in that price range and when I get it I would then consider selling the bottle it came with to recoup some of the costs.

That way I am not hopeing for a miracle bargain and I get exactly what I want - yes it costs and will take time and sacrifices to save for it but its well worth it.

I'm waiting to see about the suggested Lunar relaunch before I'd consider an auction.

yeah you can buy a replacement bottle for £65 from mathmos in the colour you want but then it will not be an original so it depends what you want?? many of the ones for sale are saying they are original but mathmos only made 2 original colourways and the sought after ones were those and the ones which had bottles made to suit homes of the mid 90's - one of which we have!! looking to sell very soon already had offer from the states for £500 but believe these will go up and up in value and apart from that we love it!!

£65 quid is not a bad deal for a lunar fill + bottle, I am not fused about those colours as I am - I like more vibrant colours and the unusual etc.

It's £69 in fact and Mathmos only offer the violet/red colour way. I imagine if they do custom colour way requests the price would be higher?

It's violet/red but as you say, quite commonplace.

they done me a blue/blue bottle for me last year, looks really good

 

there you go just under 3 days to go and up to £310 already!! be very surprised if it does not make £400

as i said our original red/red will sell for at least £600 as offers of £500 already in bag!! anyone interested??

There never was an "original" Red/Red.

Hi James, I don't see how you can be so sure this won't happen. Yes people have talked about this for years, but none of them work for Mathmos, so it's just talk. One member on this forum has been contacted about the new Lunar proposal by Mathmos, so I'm still patiently waiting for developments there. It's not like they're the most fast moving company in the world, so I'd think it's going to take some time, but there's definitely something happening.
