Oozing Goo - The Lava Lamp Syndicate

Hello to all the Mathmos fans, I wanted to share what I received today. 2 Mathmos Fluidium never opened since their launch in 2000.

I was shivering while opening the parcel, bubble wrap and then ..... The different pieces of the Fluidium

You can imagine that feeling right ?

It's not like opening a collector one alreaday used before, It was never opened, never used before me ... 19 years after they come alive.

Yesterday was the OPAL one today is the green one

The wax is still cold but I am waiting, I did not know the bulb was blue either.

After so many years of watching the Fluidiums on the net and now open a brand new one is just a strange feeling going through my body, My heart is beating louder and my hands are still shivering.

Maybe I am crazy to feel that feeling don't you think ?

I wanted to share that unboxing with you :)

Hope you will love it as much as I do.

Thank you

Enjoy

Sam from France

OPAL and GREEN are still cloudy, any advices ?

That is pictures from the yellow one I will receive next week ....

I took off the blue bulb of the Opal and put a white Bulb ( but i won't open the Opal)

I open rhe Green and change the liquid with a mix of sea salt and distilled water with one drop of clear liquid wash and I did the same with the Orange one...

Now let's wait and see in a couole of hours

Thanks for any remarks or help you can give me

Wish you a nice sunday

Yes Claude, look everywhere not only on Ebay, on the other foreign ADS site

ok ! I love the States but I wish you good luck ! only because of the shipping :(

Even in the plane I couldn't keep the botltle with me

check on the states every states you may find some European who moved to the usa

I am sorry for you and I could have done something I will

Try to call Mathmos in the uk for Brand new items

keep me updated

How are they running now that you have redone the liquid? I am lucky that only one of my Mathmos lamps is cloudy. It's one of my Jets and it actually didn't bother me at first because it kinda just gave off a glow.... But now that I have several grouped together, it sticks out and looks awful. I'm thinking about replacing the liquid but Mathmos fluid will be pricey. Not sure which route to take... Or just leave it alone. Maybe goo kit? I just hate using dimmers.

I buy mathmos via a third party shipper with UK address 

it's a bit pricy but not as bad as eBay international

Faster too

I have one FLuidium but eventually, plan on completing the collection

I have a full complement of Jetx, some Astros, Telstar, etc

YES!, I know the flag is upside down

everything is long since packed away to move.

Very nice collection ...... I wish I could have the Black Black and white white Jet :)

Thank you.

I miss them,

Currently, they are all packed away.

I love that Opal Fluidium and the orange

Eventually,... I'll compete the collection

Why they all packed away ? Are you moving ?

Watch that :

Yes!  we are getting prepped to move.

I'm just waiting on my development financing commissions to arrive.

Been a slow and arduous wait as the fund manager has had delay after delay

Flock! Always thought I'd add one to the collection someday

IMI also trying to collect the oddball Mathmos novelty lamps

I'm acquired many but I still need:

  1. Faze
  2. Sputnik
  3. Fluidium Opal
  4. Fluidium Orange
  5. Fluidium Green
  6. Brick
  7. Airswitch Beaker
  8. Bubble w/stand
  9. Tuba
  10. Solar Eclipse
  11. Lunar Eclipse
  12. Ghost
  13. Babushka
  14. Mini-lamp
  15. Teardrop

Saw those. Bought a lot of mine from them. They are a member here
