Now that I’ve looked at the picture again, it kinda looks like a mugshot.

ALL OF THE PONIES. The ones on the bottom shelf are still being cleaned/restored/need re-roots/deflocked. :] I love My Little Collection.

Battle Beasts from my original 1980’s collection:

Many have seen better days. Far too many are missing their emblem. At one point I had every figure from series 1-3 but now over half are missing. 

The love however, is still just as strong as it once was.

Why This Vintage He-Man Action Figure Still Smells Bad 30 Years Later
Whenever I catch wind of the strong stench of patchouli, it makes me instantly angry. I assumed it was because of all the high school/college kids I knew who thought an “essential” oil’s smell of reconstituted garbage, cat piss, and vomit was better than their own body odor. This article makes me think the aversion was planted in me much earlier than I thought.

Stinkor’s odiferousness was accomplished by Mattel actually mixing patchouli oil into the mold.[…]The result was that no amount of washing Stinkor or playing with him could make the smell go away, prompting untold numbers of moms to “accidentally” throw Stinkor in the trash or bury him in the back garden. Stinkor exuded stench from his every pore.

Fuck Stinkor. Fuck patchouli oil.
