Oozing Goo - The Lava Lamp Syndicate

Hi All,

just curious if anyone has bought a Mathmos Astro Metallic Lava Lamp?  I’m considering buying one with tax refund in a month or so but I am not sure if I will like it.  Does it really look like these pics I’ve attached?  Any info or input is welcomed and appreciated!

Thank you for the picture!  All of Those lamps are really awesome!  Is that a orange Metallic Astro?

yes, the fourth from the right is an astro metallic in orange.

When did the orange come out in the Metallic?  I’ve never seen one til your pic.

Not the best video but this should suffice.  No fancy audio track or video stabilization as I was hurrying to post something for you.

Ok, great!  Thank you!  I look forward to it.  If possible, a video would be phenomenal!  I’ll check back here after work tonight. Thanks!

I will have to fire up my blue one and get a pic. I will try to do that tonight.

Thank you so much Critter!  It is definitely good to know that I need to use extreme caution while handling it.  This is why I like to ask the OG community about lava lamps before I purchase them. Invaluable information. Thank you. It sounds like those who have one of these can’t say enough about how much they enjoy them.  So I think that I would like to get one of these.  Do you have any photos of your blue one?  I’d like to see actual photos of all of the colors.  I know they have pics on the Mathmos website but of course those are obviously going to look cool.  If you or anybody else wants to share photos of the Metallic Astro, please do!  Thanks again, Critter!

Dustin. 

Dustin,

Knowing Christian I would say that the orange metallic is probably a custom fill, which would be easy enough to to do.

hi Critter, theoretically you could be right! But no, the orange one is not a custom fill. This is a special edition that Mathmos produced exclusively for a mail order company called "pro Idee", and they then sold the orange metallic through they catalog!

Cool.  Never heard of that mail order company.  I like the orange, yellow too!

Wow!  Lucky you!  The orange is definitely my favorite of the 4 colors.  Very nice!  

Dustin did you see the video?  Also if you want an orange one, make it. When you order a lamp order a spare clear and orange bottle and swap out the contents....done.
