Oozing Goo - The Lava Lamp Syndicate

New color combo at Spencer's - Green/Black

52oz. $20. First run. The glass is HORRIBLE, though you can't see it in this pic. Full of light pinholes, a few smears, etc. The glass is pretty awful. Also, as you can see, the color combo on the box does not equal the color in real life. If I can take a decent pic of this lamp, why can't Lava Lite?! Sheesh.

I really do like the color combo though. More updates as I get in more runs.

Also, a black base would have been preferred for this combo. I'll be drilling and painting this one.

In case my other photos get buried with more comments, here's what the lamp REALLY looks like when running in a dark room:

I really like the darker green !

I do really like that color combo, Erin, but that globe is the most awful flawed one I have ever seen!  Don't help matters with the liquid being very dark either!   ARGG  What is wrong with them??  

@Bridget, I must have lucked out with my orange/black, it's very nice and the globe is not bad either!  Go figure? And it was an "online" Spencer's purchase.   I expected a cloudy mess with a crappy globe.  I was very pleasantly surprised!

Great colour combo, me likey a lot. I so hope the flow is good for you Erin.

Hard to tell on the flow this early, but it seemed decent for a first run. I'll let you all know as I run it a few more times (if I don't take it back first!).

Looks like it suffers the same fate as the orange/black...neat to look at when you can see anything.  How's the actual flow?

I honestly can't believe I got a pic that good when it really looks so awful. After I turned off ALL the lights, you can barely see the lava moving inside the lamp. It's so dark. And the glass is some of the worst I've seen. 

If I can't find another globe to put this in, it's going back. It's horrible to look at when the lights are off. 

I saw pink/blue (they said it was purple/blue) at Spencer's and it was even worse. I wouldn't bother. 

Anyone have a 52oz. globe that's not shitty they want to send me?

Thanks for showing what the new green/black combo looks like - I was wondering.  The first picture with the light off looks decent.  But the 2nd & 3rd pictures don't look very good.  Man, they really have to improve their quality on these lamps.  I was thinking of getting the new pink/blue combo but then I read a review that it's a really dark lamp so I decided not to.

Great color idea. But man that glass!
Comment by Loren on September 5, 2013 at 9:51pm

Nice! But yeah...that's some specky glass!

Still, for $20? Not bad.

And here you can see just how many flaws there are in the glass. There are more than I can even show in a picture.
