I've had the luck of being able to choose what i want for Father's day and decided to get a Grande. I'm looking at getting from someone who allows exchanges but worst case it would be a candidate for a goo kit. I'll be reading up on how to remove/attach the caps. Wish me luck!
Good luck! I know Mattmos (member here) got some from the eBay seller Sonic (or Sonix?) and they were clear. I don't know if they do returns though.
What color are you thinking about getting?
I haven't decided on the color yet. I'm not even sure what's available. I've just wanted one but been afraid of getting one. I guess if I get a nice globe I'll be happy as i can do a goo kit. Sounds surreal saying that and being OK with it.
I've only really seen blue/yellow, purple/pink and purple/yellow (I think).
They are neat - when they work and aren't cloudy. ;)
I checked their website.They only have the Yellow wax/blue liquid. Ebay...same one.
They offer a few colors...keep watching. Or contact them directly.
I'll do that. I'm guessing the red/w clear liquid they won't be getting any more of. That would be my preference. I kinda like it, :)
That's one of the colors that I think can have the most issues. Clear/red - never seen a clear one brand new.
I had one, dumped the liquid and refilled with tap water and it worked!
Well, that wouldn't be good. lol I guess if I get a globe that's perfect I'll be happy. At some point goo kit it and have a good lamp. I might feel around on the for sale forum and see if someone has one for sale.
whooo hooo ... how great is the gift of goo... I got my honey the Jester Icon for Fathers day..so much better than a tie..
Keep your eye on eBay - they'll have the other colors with free shipping sooner or later. I've seen them for $70, free shipping.
I think it will be an awesome gift too! :) I'll keep checking Erin. Waiting for that special lamp.
Oddly enough it was a gift from my mom. She took me along garage sell looking and I found a Grande for $8 bucks. Base needs replaced/repaired but the globe is perfect. Oh my gosh these globes are heavy!!! It was a lot larger then I had for some reason expected. It's Purple/pink I think.
