    One year later...Does your Moss Man still have it's scent?

    So I was going about arranging my display of my MOTUC figures, when I noticed something. I usually get a whiff of pine when I opened the door. When I brought him closer, there is a faint trace of it still there. But most of it is gone.

    So here is my question to the other members. Does yours still have it's scent?

    Mine is still there, but weak for sure. I recharged it with Christmas tree spray. It worked like a charm.

    Weaker than he was, but still smelly. I gotta get close to 'em to smell anything.

    Mine was recently put away to display new figures, but a pine smell he still had but rather weak. I like the christmas tree spray mentioned and may have to try that next time I put him back out on display.

    The scent on my MOTUC Mossy is pretty much gone. The figure sits on a shelf and is never handled. The scent isn't "just like I remembered". I think my vintage figure still has a good scent to it.

    OMG Yes! It's so funny that someone started this thread. A day or two ago, I was running down the hallway and Moss Man was LITERALLY all I could smell! I couldn't believe it! That boy gives off a strong scent.

    Mine hardly smells anymore. I have to hold him real close to my nose to get a small hint of the scent. I wish it was stronger and did not slowly go away over time.

    we keep ours in a box with a lid, and everytime we open it, it's a pine-xplosion.

    Don't think it's going to smell too good in there (how many times have we all said that? ) once Stinkor comes along

    Either that or they will be fighting each other and make the scents unbearable!

    I just rearranged my entire toy shelf, and my Moss Man is completely scent-less. I was more than a little upset. The smell is 100% gone.

    Maybe Mattel should sell a MossMan and Stinkor "cologne kit"? Then we could squirt the scent back on them when they dry up.
