    Stinkor's smell...

    So I had been away for a while but I was wondering if anyone has heard whether or not the ARMOR on his torso will stink as well? It would be awesome if it didn't as I'd be able to get it to use with my custom.

    From what I was able to read and hear, it seems like it's the plastic of the figure itself that has the patchouli oil smell, not the armor. Plus, I read that the smell is not as strong as the pine smell on Moss Man, so I guess you should be able to use the armor on your custom figure...

    Right. I also heard only the torso part has the smell, the arms & head don't which is cool cause I may try to buy/trade his vintage head from someone cause I have a custom idea.

    I know there is a hole in the back of it too for his tanks

    Stinkor's Stench

    I'm an MOC Collector and don't take my MOTU's out of their packaging.

    Any suggestion on where and how to cut vent holes into Stinky's card so his stench can come out?

    Ideally I would put vent holes in the same place Matel puts them normally. But the plastic inside the bubble that holds the skunk in place is in front of where the vent holes would go on the side. I had another idea to cut a hole in the dimple in the front middle of the bubble.

    I collect MOSC, but get ready for the "You must open him to smell him, makes no sense to collect MOSC" sentiments. I don't plan on cutting mine at all, but the dimple probably would be fine, it may not be all that noticeable, but I would try somehow to put holes in the sides somewhere, somehow.

    Why not just dab a little patchouli on the package? You'll have the smell and keep him MOC.

    Ask not for whom MOTUC is made, it's made for thee.

    If you have to disclaimer your like, then you don't really like it.

    Hahaha! So true! Reminds me of that ad when the woman thinks 'I wonder what other questionnable choice I made'....
    I used to wear patchouli in the 1990's thinking it was like the greatest thing lol!
    Now I wear Kiehl's musk oil! Way better and still a bit stinkor-ish but more subtle! lol

    You can buy it on amazon for anywhere from 5-20 bucks depending on size of the bottle and brand.

    They have it here at certain smoke shops with other essential oils. I guess there's more than one kind because some smell like Stinkor, and some absolutely do not.

    Normally yes, but not Stinkor.

    I can't get enough of his smell. I'm constantly picking him up and sniffing him. I think I've formed a habit...

    The weapons and armor just have a residual smell from being in the blister with him - and from touching him - but it is not ultra-powerful. Maybe a couple of good washes and the armor would not smell at all.

    Me too, man. A few times every evening I wander into my hobby room just to pick Stinkor up and give him a smell! So many great childhood memories come flooding back!

    If you have a "New Age / Hippie" store in your area, they will sell these oils for cheap. Some Health Food stores also sell essential oils, but they will cost you more. Actually, the more expensive oils might be more pure and work better. Whole Foods, Natural Grocers, Wild Oats, etc will have them.

    Got stinker today. His shield clip was broken in the package (grrr) but his patchouli smell is quite strong...
    Photog is here! thank you, Mattel!

    Now how about some mini-comics love (like Lodar, Geldor, Dakon......)? And Mermista?

    I could smell mine while he was still sealed. It was faint, and I could only smell it at the seam, but it was there.

    I could smell Stinkor as soon as I opened the shipping box, then more so after opening the mailer....Ah the horrible smell of pits....at least the ZW case I have him in, has the smell well more muted...but when I open my display room door....which is a nice sized walk in closet....I catch a faint whiff of the funk....I never had a vintage Stinkor, and while I like him aside from the forearm thing....I am glad I am a MOSC collector, because he would probably be giving me a headache right now, and funking my display room up.
