    I think it should go back to the Cross.

    I don't know what that asterix thing was supposed to be.
    I know the claims. It's an "H" and a "Cross"! It's the "He-Man" symbol so he can be EVEN MORE like a Superman rip off.

    I really didn't like the asterix version of it. I didn't mind it so much when it actually resembled an "H" like on the toon or on the Mini Bust by the 4HM.

    But c'mon... It's just a cross, let's bring it back already!

    Fans have had, and will always have heavy opinions about just about everything MotU related.

    But I can't recall anyone hating the cross. It's how it's always been. I don't think it offended anybody. Or if it did it was a very few individuals.
    Certainly not as many as were offended when they took away the cross.

    And let's not make this yet ANOTHER debate on whether the cross is a christian symbol, a nazi symbol, or whatever. A cross is a cross. And on He-Man, on Eternia... It's always been He-Man's symbol, period, end of story.

    Any new He-Man better have a cross. I'm very offended by asterisks.

    Iron Cross, the new sign didn't really work. Although my personal choice would be the "H" sign off the classic Battle Armor.

    I say go with the cross.
    Any variations on the classic chest emblem- be it the "H", the asterick, or whatever else- should be saved for variants.

    I could never really get behind the "H". The Cross is the way to go.

    Just ask the Widgets what calls He-man.

    I actually like what the 4HM did on the statue and bust, it was a more detailed version of MYP interpretation of Mattel’s original asterisk. That said I like the classic H that Mattel put on Battle armor, Thunder Punch and Flying fist He-man the best.

    I am in the same camp as Orko's Magic Hat. I really don't like the new H symbol so I will pick the cross. However, I do love the whole Battle Armor He-Man symbol (and outfit). I wouldn't mind if He-Man's look was a new hybrid of classic and classic battle armor.

    Although I liked the stylized H from the 2002 series, I always felt it was a little cluttered, and at times, hard to get an H out of. So for me, I think several of you are correct in saying it's gotta be the iron cross or classic H, I think Mattel could do major bank by having a series/toyline where He-Man regularly upgrades to battle armor. The classic battle armor design is so cool, as well as several of He-Man's alternate armors from the original line. plus it would give them a chance to use the H and the iron cross both.

    Go back to the cross, especialy if this is going to be a classic collectors line.

    the statue had the cross, (both full size and mini statue) the H on the bust wasn't bad, but the really I never saw he-man as having that need to advertise his initial...to me it doesn't fit.

    The new He-Man should have the classic cross. The H always seemed silly to me.

    The cross is the way to go in my book.

    He-Man isn't Superman.

    If I wanted to collect Superman stuff then I would. But He-Man is who I choose to collect.

    Although I liked the MV Creations-style emblem, I had to vote for the classic cross.

    Classic cross of course! With that said, I can't wait to see a Battle Armor He-Man with his "classic H" in this new classic style!

    I liked the cross symbol & didn't mind the H-symbol all that much but we really didn't need either tattooed across Castle Greyskull's forehead..or did we?
