Okay, pink liquid with blue lava is a nice combo. But definitely not a sensation. Pink liq with orange lava is even duller, and the logo is horrifying.

Résumé: All bark but no bite...

A missed opportunity to say the least.

Just seems a rather cynical ploy to do as little as they could get away with to get fans of Pretty Green to part with their cash.

Oh man, can you imagine if Mathmos did a Psychedelic Haze style lamp? I'd be swimming across the pond for that!

Okay, so I've uploaded four photos. 

The lamp I must say is in mint condition, not so much as a smudgy finger print. The bottle is stunning and different to anything Mathmos has put out before. The nearest being pink white. The flow is perfect. Overall I cannot complain at all and am pleasantly surprised by the quality. On the downside, I dont like the logo so ive put it to the back and the box is a gimmick. But very good 9/10. 

the pink looks different to the pink back in the 90s like pink / white & pink orange, i hope that colour will be avalible for general bottles 

It is. Its much darker almost violet and not the almost fluorescent of the 90s pink white astro. Personally I would like to see a clear yellow or a yellow yellow. Can you tell I love yellow! Yes a very nice lamp and superb bottle with nice serpentine shapes. I love the newer Mathmos formula makes for lovely lamps. 

i thought it didnt seem the vibrant pink :-(  but totaly agree need more yellow wax again

Okay so I got mine on a Friday in the post. I have to say the base is flawless, the glass of the bottle is in perfect condition, hardly any dots of light, no scars, the bottle sits straight and it looks amazing.

Fire it up and wait, the flow on these is really really poor, it just does a blob up and blob down. The quality of Mathmos has really gone down the toilet lately. I don't think I will buy anything from them again. Everytime I do, I just get burnt and would rather stick to older lamps. Since they went halogen, the formula they are using is pure rubbish.

I am tempted to do a youtube video of an old 1990s lamp and the new junk and show them the difference. Although I don't think they'd care much.

Tried using different bulbs and nothing makes any change, thought it was getting too much heat or too little. There is something wrong with these lamps, they don't snake up and down like they used to, they break into blobs so fast.

My lamp works flawlessly. Nice blobs and serpentine shapes. Very happy and really pleased with flow. Perfect formula.
