    yeah i had to let a few things breathe and out in the air or open window helped. i dont know of a scent that smells good that can seep into a figure like smoke can. maybe burning incense around it? then it would smell like the incense.

    id say let natural go about it like ersico said. if you use something then it might just change the smell all together and make it too strong. where if you let it breather it will eventually not be noticeable unless you place your nose on it and smell.

    When I received my animated Shockwave's loose, they almost burned my nostrils. I blew as much of the dust and soot off them as I could an put them on the shelf. A couple months later I can't smell anything on them.

    I got this tip from someone on these boards a few years ago. Take the toy and close it in a box with a couple of sheets of fabric softener. Leave it like that for a few days. When you take it out, the toy might smell like fabric softener at first, but not for long.

    Mix up a paste of baking soda and water and scrub the toy down with a soft toothbrush, then give it a day in the sun to dry. Rinse it all out THOROUGHLY first, paying special attention to the joints since the paste will get in there and leave residue if you don't remove it well enough. Should take off most or all of the smell, and the funky residue too.

    Dryer sheets in a ziplock or shoe box for a few days has worked for me. Well, that and washing the toy as best I could without damaging anything (decals and the like).

    I fill a bowl with water and some antibaterial soap & just soak the toy for several hours. After, rinse it off to get any soap off. Let dry. No smoke smell.

    I PROMISE you wont smell a thing if you do exactly as im about to tell you:

    ...start smokeing yourself. :) 

    Nah seriously dude, just take some fabreeze , spray the fig a couple o' times from the distance and dry well. It may take more than one pass, but that will knock it out.

    I still say nothing works 100%, just make wure you don't close a smokey toy up in something with others, more than likely it would stink up the others.

    I've never tried this but I hear putting it in a Tupperware container and sealing it in there for a couple days will do the trick. Though the Tupperware may end up smelling like smoke for a while.

    Toothpaste has always worked for me, just a little on a brush and give the toy a quick scrub.

    Putting it outside, in the shade, on a windy day is the best option. If it got the smell out of my figs after living with my parents, 2packs per day each, it will rid the smell off anything.

    2.soak toy and scrub with old toothbrush
    3.rinse off with clean water in bathroom shower
    4.dry toy

    grime, grease, smell all gone.
