    Same with me. As soon as I walked in my room, you can smell him!

    Yep, still has that familiar Patchouli scent... and i really like it! Moss Man thankfully still has his Pine scent too. Won't ever forget how strong it was when opening him from the package LoL. Love it.

    I got an MIB Stinkor a while back, which I opened. I don't have the best sense of smell. Close up he smells subtle to me, but very strong to my wife. When I smell him I get equal parts patchouli and new toy smell.

    BUT I do find that his smell tends to infuse an area after a day or two. I had him in my office for a week. He's been gone for two days and it STILL smells like patchouli in here.

    He smells more like straight up patchouli than my vintage Stinkor, who on good days smells just like I remembered as a kid, just weaker. The old smell wasn't quite like straight up patchouli. It was sharper, less earthy. Maybe it was the combination of the plastic they used to use that made the vintage one smell a little sharper. Or maybe it was a different species of patchouli.

    Anyway, I'm just glad the new one smells.

    Mine still smells. I walk into my man cave and will catch a nice whiff of him.
    I did smell Stinkor at HeroCon this weekend... except it wasn't Stinkor. Nor was it a toy...

    Mine still has his cloying Patchouli scent! It's not very strong, but it never was in the first place.

    Oh yeah. I recently had Stinkor out of the display for some pictures and he stunk up the garage. I think the heat of that uninsulated room actually amplified the Stinkor stink.

    I just opened a new Stinkor last week. He's been on my desk just a couple of feet away from me and there is absolutely no smell unless you pick him up and take a big whiff.

    I had mine resealed for a while, after taking him out and fixing the forearms, then I resealed him after his odor giving me headaches....finally just over a month ago, I reopened him, and he's still standing today....he's not nowhere near as strong as he was when I pulled him back out....you can still get a good whiff when you open my collection room (Office walk-in closet) door, just not as bad as at first.
    Recent....Flogg
    Coming....

    Yes, and just the right amount, too. I was rearranging some figures (clearing off a new shelf for recent figures and the rest of what's coming in 2013) yesterday afternoon, and noticed that at about two feet away from his shelf, I could smell Stinkor. Any further away and it wasn't noticeable, but when you got closer in, it was definitely there. For comparison, I sniffed Moss Man (on the other end of the same shelf), and found that he still had his scent, too, but it was also only detectable from about two feet off or less.

    Stinkor still stinks today, and Moss Man still smells like heavy pine-sol.

    Interestingly enough, even though my Stinkor is still mint in package AND in his white mailer box--his smell is somehow permeating into my other Masters figures that are around him.
    I noticed this just the other day. I pulled my Fisto out and he smelled like patchouli when you smelled him from the little air vents in the bubble, same with the other figures that are all mint in package in their white mailers too which are around him? Not sure how that smell is getting into the other boxes and then into the bubbles? Needless to say, Stinkor sits by himself now.

    Yep, the same with mine. According to Toyguru, all of the Stinkor's that were returned for not smelling were still carded.

    I offered to send my Stinkor to him in order to prove that some of us actually opened the package to verify that we had an odorless Stinkor but I never heard back from him.

    That said, I think I actually prefer an odorless Stinkor. Had I returned it, I might not have gotten it back.
