Interesting and somewhat intriguing

I think a new china led lamp...

Hmm, looks like the collaboration is with https://www.prettygreen.com/ a fashion brand founded by Liam Gallagher. Was hoping for something fresh but this might seem to point to more retro pastiche :-|

I can't get excited as the chances of me owning a mathmos are slim and now that I read the new ones have flow issues and quality problems, the interest has wanned even further.

the most recent mathmos lamps have china flow.
just a couple of blobs here and there

I have 2 Mathmos lamps. The most recent is only a few months old. I don't have a flow issue with them at all. They are hands down the best lamps I have. 

Some of the lamps get hot too quickly as a result of the reflector halogen bulbs, but this can be controlled with a dimmer plug. Otherwise, I haven't had any problems with flow, you might get the odd shoddy lamp but the last one I bought (Heritage Astro) a few months ago is of decent quality.

My most recent Mathmos lamps, a copper astro, 2 telstars, four fireflows and a Neo plus numerous bottles all have excellent flow, probably the best bottles ive had in years. They most certainly do not have china flow. 

The new lamps are described as psychedelic. I am hoping for some different colour bottles and not the standard line. Anything different is most welcome and I will most certainly be purchasing. 

If you ever come accross a bad flow contact Mathmos, their customer service is excellent!

thanks for i guess i just have bad luck with the last two Astros I bought recently

I thought I read elsewhere on this forum that if a person calls mathmos about lamp that has poor flow, they tell you that is how they are made now, nothing they can do.

Well you were right theres absolutely nothing to get excited about. 

They couldnt even be bothered to design a new base and cap. Same old mirrored finish, designer box and a few different colour schemes with a logo on the bottle, shocking.
