    I finally got around to taking my Stinkor out of the box. He was my favourite when I was 5 years old, and I have to say, I think he's my favourite MOTUC so far. He smells slightly different than the one I had as a kid but he still smells awesome! His arms I guess, are a little strange but when he's holding his gun/shield, he looks so damn cool! Love him!

    Wow. Those Carnivus feet look SO good on him! MUCH better than the duck feet. Now I think I need to swap.
    Positivity, folks!
    Letīs all agree to love MOTU enough to let others love MOTU, too!

    I don't think you need THAT steady a hand even, the outer arm is smaller that than inner arm (the proper ones) so if you want just a white strip would work and not look out of place. I personally did a bit of a pattern just because i like it, but found that the fur part is so small it didn't need one.

    with mine heating it up made the stinkor smell stronger and reduced the plastic smell.

    I think it was pretty common.

    Actually, I didn't list Goddess because I was thinking of "customizing fixes". Now that I think about it, super-gluing 7 or 8 pieces back together so she'd be a whole figure again, DOES count (fixed it!).

    I think it was actually a cheaper, more brittle plastic. When I took my original KG apart to fix him, the He-Man parts that I used felt markedly different...less brittle and more sturdy.

    Wow this is the first i heard of the KG thing. Thank my lucky stars on that huh? I still want a bronze one, to think a few years back I thought $80 was ridiculous to pay for him!!

    I was going to change his arms regardless because I wanted a more 200X look.

    Finally fixed his arms and hit the shield details with a gloss varnish.
