    Cool! Stinkor looks awesome! I'm glad we have both heads to switch around! I had Stinkor back in the days and he was one of my favorite villains! Adding Beast-Man's body makes him look much better overall. Metallic blue on the accessories would've been much better, I agree. Can't wait to get him!!

    Absolutely, they do. Those things make the two heads VERY noticeably different. Whereas with Stinkor's heads I think you've gotta take a pretty good look to see the differences--I felt the same way about Panthor's headsculpt--the first time I saw a pic I thought it was a prototype that still had Battle Cat's head on it.

    I was so looking forward for this review! Can´t´wait to get him. I love the 200x head, it´s the same head with a different expression, just like in mossman, who used a repainted head too.
    One quick question, Dan. Can you tell if the only piece that 'stinks' is the torso? According to another review it was.
    Thanks for the awesome review and congrats on the brand new site!
    Keep it up!!

    The two heads are fantastic, the mer-man head is for the nostalgia effect and the real head is perfect, the eyes, the ears and the overall menacin' look is stunnin'.
    While the vintage figure is a total repaint of old stuff, with this figure we got a lot of new things:
    1) The new head
    2) The new neck piece
    3) The gun
    4) The backpack
    5) The furry forearm
    6) The furry calf
    I think that's one of the best figures of the line.
    I will not buy it just because I already have the vintage toy but it's highly recommended!
    P.S. Thank you 4 Horsemen for the Beastman body and the Skeletor hands/feet, the perfect choices between the actual toy and the cross-sell art!

    That's exactly what his head looked like in 200x. How much more different could they have made it? It's accurate to the staction and cartoon.

    Can't wait for Stinkor!!!

    Dan, that story from when you were a kid proves that Stinkor really has the “stench of evil.”

    Stinkor is my #1 Favorite character and for some reason I can't view the video
    Out of the night that covers me,
    Black as the pit from pole to pole,
    I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll,
    I am the master of my fate,
    I am the captain of my soul.

    What can I say... MOTUC Stinkor is wonderful ! I'll certainly buy this figure ! Awesome ! And very nice preview, Dan ! I laughed when you told us you were actually afraid of Stinkor's patchouli stench when you were a little boy. Nice childhood anecdote and memory !

    GREAT review of my favorite character! I can't wait!

    It's BASICALLY the same head, with a different expression.

    Admittedly the modern one looks BETTER... but I think if they only gave us THAT one, I don't think anyone would have really noticed. I'd rather they save the extra heads for when they are more drastically noticable.
    I notice. I think the 200X head works best with the gas mask on. If you don't use it, then it WILL look similar to original Stinkor. I'm getting two Stinkors for both looks--one with all the 200X stuff, the other with only the shield and Mer-Man head. I think the vintage toy Mer-Man head works for Stinkor better than Mer-Man himself.

    Look at pic posted by Iceman and tell me you don't see the dramatic difference in the way those ears are sculpted... On the classic head they look like flat sea shells (like that from an oyster), almost, while on the new head they have a more animalistic, feline look. Heck even the positioning is different. I would liken it to the difference in the way a dog's ears lie whether they're happy and alert or angry and ready to take a chunk out of someone. And if you can't notice the difference between those two things, I would recommend avoiding dogs for a long healhy life.

    By the way, I do agree that Panthor's head sculpting difference is subtle. But Stinkor, no it's pretty obvious.

    Great Review as always and I saw you huffing Stinkor in that Video Dan

    To steal and slightly change a line from a great Movie " Looks like Dan picked the wrong week to quit sniffing Stinkor"

    I won't be using the gun, tanks, mask, lever, etc. But why didn't they add the paint apps to the blue accessories?

    I guess metallic blue paint is VERY expensive these days. Perhaps it's being rationed for Sir sucks alot.

    Great review. I'm really anticipating this figure. I'll probably display him in the same manor as I do Fisto: with the 200X accessories but with the classic head. That new head would look great on Felinor.

    Wow i cant believe people are complaining about the extra head lol wait yes I can

    oh well i think both heads look great!

    He is coming with a lot of items, 1 old head, 1 new head, new neck piece, new forearms, new armor, new gas mask, new tanks, new gun and 1 old shield

    If i had to guess, Im thinking we lost the paint details on the items in favor of keeping all those parts, I could be wrong, it could have just been a mistake that got over looked.

    either way i will be happy to display 2 stinkors in my collection!

    Why not? He looks dumb without the tank and mask.

    Good stuff, love your childhood story.

    I have to say, the 200X head looks very sinister. I'm not sure which I'll display Stinkor with, but I'll definitely be adding on all of the accessories for ultimate-Stinkor-ness. Yeah, that's not a word, but eh...

    Only one thing bugs me...

    A nearly perfect fig. BUT, he needs hoses or something to indicate a respirator/filter on the gas mask, otherwise what does it do exactly? Also, do the tanks store stench to shoot? A hose needs to go to the gun. Is it fresh air? A hose needs to go to the gas mask. The lack of logical hoses is my only gripe. I would have preferred Hordak feet, but not a huge deal. Still, I reaaaallly dig him.

    I wasn't excited about this figure until now. As a child, "Skunk Man repaint of Mer Man" was one of those designs that drove me away from the line. But I like the character now! Admittedly, I would have preferred even more 200X influences specifically for this character, but I think we all got what were expecting. It's a good figure!
