    Does your Stinkor still stink?

    I personally own two Stinkor figures, and till this day I can still catch the faint stench of evil drifting from my 'book' shelf. It cracks me up! How many of you experience the same thing? Has anyone gone so far as to separate their Stinkor figure form the rest of their collection, or put it in a bag? Is anyone allergic to the smell?

    Yep! I have two on my desk at home, so the den is a little bit Stinkor-iffic. I also noticed after leaving them in the garage for a long hot day after taking pics, the smell intensified with the heat. They stunk up my whole garage.

    Mine is still sealed on his card, literally sealed inside of a Zoloworld case (bottom and sides), and if I squeeze the case, I can smell him big time, because I left the very top of the case unsealed, and I can catch a faint whiff from him still even almost sealed inside the ZW case every once in a while....

    But being encased is much different than being out of package, but before I sealed him in the case, he was giving me a headache, and before I sealed him in, he was really strong and coming through even that ZW case he was in.

    If I was a loose collector, there's no way I'd be able to open him, mine was that bad, I can even still smell it in his mailer, that I have with the rest, broken down in an under the bed storage tote.

    My loose Stinkor is still smelly, but only if you hold him right up to your nose.

    Mine still stinks and I'm glad he does. I used to have him on the book case by my door and could smell him everytime I left the house. Moved him to the new shelf and can smell him faintly in the chair.

    They must have had serious variations in the mixtures between machines or batches, because some have said like mine he was really strong, and others have said they smell almost nothing....it sucks that there is such variation in the run, but like I said not just one machine is running, and the mixture from machine to machine was probably not calibrated right.

    Mine was really strong, just sitting in the package he was giving me a huge headache.

    I am not allergic, but as I mentioned, he was so bad he gave me a headache that wouldn't go away until I sealed him in the ZW case with tape, and I can still detect faint hints of him when I open my closet display room door....and not to mention he mailer still reeks.

    My Stinkor smell is still going strong. Every time I open up the He-Man room it's the first nostalgic aroma I can smell.

    Mine still smells, in fact the name card from the packaging still retains a whiff too, as I found out earlier this morning. I keep all cardbacks and inserts in a box.
    Take each day as it comes, but never take it for granted.

    Mine still smells a little, but the cardboard and the plastic bubble smells stronger than the actual figure.

    All 3 of mine (1 MOC, 2 Loose) still stink, but only if you put them right up to your nose. Now when I first opened them they took me aback.
    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.
