"So you too can win Number 1 Pretty Green limited edition lava lamp. Great! Unless of course you are not shackled to FB then you cannot. Mathmos and Pretty Green this is shambolic. I will never be a part of FB spy network! EVER! "

"Their was a thing on their older pretty green listing, that said to contact them to get replacement pretty green bottles, however, I phoned them and they said No to me in no uncertain terms, quite rudely in fact. So as you said it is doubtful you…"

"Its got to be the laziest special edition ever. Just a standard astro base and cap with a fancy logo on the bottle. A few new colourways? I dont think blue and orange go together, and the blue pink will be just like the astrobaby variant.  OK…"

doddy replied to ash-hole!'s discussion Astro bulb problem
"As a general rule the standard astro lamp uses a small edison screw SES. The replacement for the golf ball 40w is a 35w halogen spot SES bulb. They should still fit the older astro bases. I use them now and they are just as good with the older…"

"I agree on the mixed bag point of view. They always had good and bad bottles. Some of my jet bottles have so many bubbles in the glass that it really distracts from anything inside and some have none. They probly still dont have any quality control."

"I too really miss the glitter lamps. I wish they would bring them back. Also the neo needs a green variant. I would also like to see a yellow and a white astro bottle. Yellow would be nice on these cold winter nights. I Also really like the quality…"

"I think that the issue with gauging the quality on the flow is that we all have different opinions. I personally like a slower more serpentine flow which Adara has described above. I'm not really a fan of the blobby flow which is similar to…"

"The glass bottles I have bought recently have been excellent quality, very few air bubbles and nice and clear. I dont have a problem at all with the flow. One of my biggest gripes is the white plastic bases are of poor quality, they let through a…"

Adara replied to doddy's discussion Mathmos lava quality.
"Here is what is good and bad about their lineup. Astro & Astro Baby - Using way too much chemical in the masterfluid that makes the lamp's wax break before reaching the top, so just throwing up blobs up and down. Dilute the masterfluid…"

Mathmos lava quality.

I would like your views on the quality of Mathmos lava. I have been reading lately that most of you feel that the quality of the lava has declined lately, in my opinion this is not the case. When I started collecting in 1997, i had quite a few problems with my bottles, namely a violet red which would not flow at all and lava with flaky bits in it especially the blue green and yellow orange. Also the telstar lamp would only pea shoot randomly and never flow properly.I only have three lamps now.…See More

doddy replied to Johnny's discussion Mathmos Lunar bottles
"Add a bottle to your cart, go to checkout and it will show as £70 after the discount of 30%. So same price almost. It is also a good way to buy some new bottles at a discount provided you spend more than £65."

doddy replied to Peter Panussi's discussion new version of Mathmos' Telstar in matt black and copper
"I totally agree they should not be using the black name whatsoever. The colour is off purple. Even plum can be used for red purple green or yellow as plums exist in lots of colours. How anyone can actually say they like this off purple is beyond me.…"

Any way to ban Annabel Duru? It’s bad enough to have scammers on this site but the atrocious writing makes it all the more unacceptable!
