    i know i'm not the only one on here that loves this, but i adore the smell of vintage star wars figures. i actually don't think it's limited to star wars as occasionally i'll be walking around, catch a whiff of something and think "that smells like he-man". the best part is that if i'm with a friend and mention it, they'll more often than not agree. i know odor is the biggest memory trigger that we have and that probably has a lot to do with why i like the smell so much, but i get all kinds of nostalgic when i get a big ole nostril full of some old plastic. also, when i purchase vintage figures, i'm extremely disappointed when they don't smell the way they should. i store all mine in tackle boxes and it keeps the odor perfectly.
