If you can get hold of one today, you'll discover that the He-Man villains Stinkor and Moss Man still cling to their particular [pungent] aroma.
Many toys from the 1980's were imbued with scents as an extra gimmick, most notably the 'Strawberry Shortcake' Doll
line and associated accessories. As a selling tactic this was mostly applied to toys firmly marketed at girls - with two notable exceptions.
Despite being barely canon, Mattel thought the character was unique enough to merit it's own action figure. The show's writers were less than enthusiastic about the character and he was never featured in the cartoon.
In fact, Stinkor’s only canonical appearance in the original Masters of the Universe is a mini-comic packed in with the figure called "Stench of Evil."
