    Can someone add a third choice? Something like "zzzzzzzzz, I would have never noticed the difference if everybody didn't talk about it all the time."

    I didn't really care about the sign on his chest. I was happy that it was just He-Man. Be it cross, *, or a fancy "H".

    But mess with The Superman Logo and I'll go postal!

    Anyway, but having heard Mattel's reason behind it. The matter is really done with. Unless Mattel will issue a variant of the new Classics version with the cross. Then maybe to satisfy both sides. Maybe include it as an accessory?

    But the cross does look better!

    Like most, I say the cross. Actually, my favorite version was the original 4H cross, with the crack through the middle of the top arm. That was awesome, but the H/* has got to go, IMO.

    I think giving the H/Asterisk to King Grayskull & letting He-Man have his cross was the only right decision - no doubt about that. Otherwise It wouldn't be "CLASSIC" He-Man!

    Cross.

    It's He-Man's symbol. Every time I see a cross shaped like that, I think of He-Man.

    Well we got the cross. End of story surely?

    Now tell me what it actually symbolised in MOTU so that He-man ended up wearing it......

    Cross, but I'm not against the possibility of a repaint down the road in 200X colors with the newer symbol. Especially if he came with a Classics version of the 200X sword and the Bio paid props to the 4HM's original take on the line...
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    I see absolutely no reason to put any crosses on my 'NA' Classics He-Man. There's the mix of 'H' and 'M' letter for that.

    Hey, you asked ANY He-Man figure.

    Agreed, that's pretty much what I was going to say too.

    Of course Iron Cross. That's He-Man. That alone makes Classic New Adventures He-Man perfect.

    Mind you, technically speaking I think He-Man's H symbol from Thunder PUnch, Battle Armour, Flying Fists is perhaps his best symbol, but it lacks the instant recognition factor, if He-Man has any "Instant" recognition from the general public. But if a symbol of his is iconic, it's that Cross.

    Keep it.

    Definately not the asterix from 200x. classic H if anything else.

    Whatever respective symbol was on their vintage counterpart. It might look kind of lame, but I want that Grayskull/200X asterisk on Snake Armor He-Man.

    And the Battle Armor/Thunder Punch 'H' was was the coolest.

    Please go back to the cross. The asterisk was just goofy in my opinion.
