Out of all the Saga figures, etc., which one of yours has had the most powerful stench? For me, it was Luminara. Whew! That figure almost knocked me out when I opened it. I guess it was all those robes. That thing still smells!

It smells like Gritty Kitty...ahhhhhh!:stupid:

No sir! I don't like it!

Actually, I haven't been smelling any of my figures. I'm still trying to get the glue out of my nose.:crazed:

Turn your S.C. Palpatine or Jar Jar Binks G.S. figures upside down and take a big wiff of the plastic that makes up their bodies. Wow, that will definatly give you a head rush. :D

I dunno, I noticed Palpatine's pequilar scent when I opened the figure the other day. I sniffed his head, his arms and his body trying to find the source. None of it smelled as strong as when I pulled him off the card. So, I figured it had to do with the glass coat and paint on the body actually masking the scent. I ended up turning him upside down and taking a big ole wiff. It was so strong that I checked the others. Shaak Ti's wasn't strong, and neither really was Luminaria. But man, Jar Jar Binks almost knocked me off my chair. Both of them are really aromatic. :D :crazed:

Someone should buy a POTF2 Tarkin and open it to see if you can detect the "foul stench" Leia recognized when she was brought on board.

All figures have that "newness stench about them."

But compared to the Acklay's GUTS -that stench is the most ultimate force in the universe!

At least for me right now.

Plus they're so squishy, they're almost edible. Maybe Hasbro can sell the mold to a candy store licensee. Then we can have Guts'a'Gluttany candies! Jabba would love these!

I am afraid to go near my palpatine because he has the measles.

Um...I'm still airing out my Royal Guards. But that's not the worst of it- I've got E1 figures that still reek.

*Tycho gets excited* REALLY? -Which ones?

I've noticed the battledroids' flimsy plastic they're constructed with stink in several different ways ;)

Realstands or Ultaramas tend to cure this problem if you put BOTH feet on the pegs. Actually, the droids are less of a problem than OOM-9. He used to be the hardest to keep from getting "bendy-leg."

Nute and Rune are nice figures, but they still smell a little I think.

Anakin Naboo, mostly. I even tried seperating him and his cloak for a couple months, but it didn't seem to help.

'Course, now all the loose guys are in a case contributing to their own mass stink. But I pull some of them out and they don't stink at all.

So far, I haven't come across a Saga figure that really smelled bad. But then, I haven't found many of the figures mentioned in this thread like Luminara & such.

The absolute worst smelling figure I've come across goes way back to wave 1 of the Ep I figures. Darth Maul - Jedi Duel was by far the stankiest figure I've come across.

Now thats funny!!!:crazed:

I picked up the Slice N' Dice Anakin last night. When I opened the package, the "Can't Hold It Together" smelled like roadkill womprat. Of course I stuck it up to my nose to make sure.:stupid:

Ok, we're in business. I won an auction for an Tarkin for about $3.:D

The waiting is the hardest part.
