"Nice score - the liquid looks cloudy but you can always change it out.  I also agree with other owners in that the lamp feels like it weighs 200 pounds.  I worked out for years and 100 lbs. was easy to lift.  Not this lamp.  I…"

"1 Gallon of water weighs about 8.34 Lbs, approx 10 Gallons of content in a Collosus = 83.4 Lbs. plus glass weight, the rest doesn't weigh much at all.   I wish I could tell you from personal experience :("

Were Colossus/Humungo Lamps Advertised?

Hi everyone,After six long years of searching and waiting, I FINALLY scored the Holy Grail of lava lamps - a purple liquid/red wax Colossus in perfect shape from a collector in the Twin Cities, complete with the glass table ring and functioning dimmer.
