I started a post a while back asking if anyone had a picture of the fabled Red Metallic Mathmos Astro, and no one had one. Eventually someone did post one on their page, and I checked where they were located, and sure enough -England, makes sense.
Well, I had been watching ebay like a hawk and I finally found one, and in new crystal clear condition too. To make a long story short, I actually won the auction. I am riding on a cloud right now- it will be mine soon enough and I can barely wait. My heart was beating so fast at the last seconds of the auction, thank god it is over, thought I would keel over with anticipation. When I think about how excited I am about a Lava Lamp, it is a little embarrassing, but this is kinda one of my holy grails as far as collecting goes.
Here's the link to the item:
