Oozing Goo - The Lava Lamp Syndicate


Hello everyone, I know many of you are on the hunt or know of someone on the hunt for replacement fiber optics for their Fantasia lamp. Look no further!! As you all may or may not know already. I am currently in the process of making replacement glass fiber optic sprays. These will be identical to the original Fantasia sprays. I am overwhelmed with pre-orders and will most likely have a supply and demand issue on my hands at first, so I will do my best to have enough on hand when I begin selling them to go around. The first sprays that will be rolling out will be for the Sunburst 4000 model, Cosmos 5000 model, Regency 4001 model. All previous model Fantasia lamps, Cuda etc will have replacements as I make them available. These I hope to have ready by early to mid summer.

The large fiber optic sprays that will first be available, will be available in two lengths. The first one being a 14" spray that when inserted will hang and display its ends about mid globe on a Sunburst 4000.
The second length spray will be 18" long and is generally seen on the Black Sunburst 4000 model "Egg Shape" But will fit the Chrome and gold model Sunburst 4000 model lamps also.

The Cosmos lamp will need a measurement specific spray tailored for a exact fit within the lamp, essentialy the 14" spray should fit with no problems however I would not mind some feedback on the length of the fiber optic spray from a Cosmos 5000 model. "Measure from the ferrule to the end tips of the fibers, I know multiple sprays were used on the Cosmos, some shorter than others, just reply to this discussion with the measurements, please and thank you! :-)

These fiber optic sprays are in no way easy to make and will be made by hand and not in a factory, the cost of materials, especially the glass fiber optics is a bit pricy, the work and the process that goes into getting a spray fully assembled from start to finish with a haircut takes a bit of time. The price tag on these sprays will be most likely in the neighborhood of $100-125 each, that will be determined when they are made available for sale. I am a quality person and will make the price tag worth it's cost. I know you all know these sprays are not available anywhere unless you purchase another lamp somewhere and snag it's spray for a replacement.

keep your eyes peeled on ebay for these sprays as this will be where I will be hosting them for sale first as where I also have many other Fantasia related replacement parts for sale, color wheels etc. I will also give a heads up to you all on here prior to me listing them on ebay. Reply to this thread to give me an idea of how many "goo members" alone I will be helping out with sprays. I look forward in helping many of you get your vintage Fantasia lamps back!!
As a heads up I WILL NOT be offering "Heat Formed" replacement sprays as the process in doing this is very involved and requires special techniques and equipment I do not have access to, perhaps down the road when the lighting business I am trying to get launched is successfully up and running.

I know!  I e-mailed Germany Man.  He hasn't gotten back to me.  I told him I'd like the 1400 fibers - Thank YOU for the suggestion.  Hopefully he'll get back to me.  I'd like the lamp in every room!  If not, it's all your's to play with and figure out the optic's.  The rest of the lamp works perfectly.  Trust me.  And, I'm not in it to make a few dollars, otherwise I'd put it on ebay like the other person for $250?  Crazy.  In my opinion, it should go to  a fellow Fantasia lover.

Well if you are willing to carefully package the lamp with lots of bubble wrap and wrap the tower before putting the globe on and then wrapping everything up and boxing it, please let me know your supply and shipping cost and i will send you funds via paypal. That would be gretaly appreciated. I will also provide you my address.

I am laughig...I feel like my Mother just gave me instructions...I know how to pack a box!  I will say this one more time:  I love this lamp and I am sorry my pet knocked it off the table that I inherited from my Grandmother...It's totally in tact.  Can you promise me that if I send it to you that you'll do your best to get it working?

The fellow in Germany at Pyrofag has been away on vacation. He may not be back just yet.
My apologies, i was not trying to insult you and make you come across that you did not know how to pack a box. I just know how these shipping companies handle boxes and how i have received lamps in the past due to their neglagent handeling. I just was making sure is all.

I too need an extra spray now as I recently found another Pyrox 32 lamp that has none.

The Pyrox 32 lamp can NOT use a Sunburst spray as those spray's are slightly too wide to fit it.



I hope the German seller returns from vacation soon and that he still has some 14,000 fibers available for sale as I would like to purchase 2 of them.

Hi James,
I could send you a 14000 spray with a plastic shaft or a 10000 spray with a metall shaft!
Send me your address and I will send it to you!
Regards, Christian

Hi Christian,

Thank you very much for you offer! - PM sent.

This is totally unfair, I feel like a fool for offering something good, that I INHERITED, I was asking to pay for the optics. S pinder, I'm so happy you got a sale,..but I seriously thought this was about more?
Apparently no one does. It's a bummer. I'm going to assume you haven't read this thread? Have a wonderful evening.
