    He-Man crest: MOTU Classics line

    With the new MOTU classics line being made, one of the big questions is what crest will He-Man have on his armor. With the prototype, we saw that he had the classic cross. On King Greyskull, we see the new 2000 asterix logo. From ALL of the logos we have seen over the years, which would you prefer for the new He-Man?

    1. Classic cross?
    2. Classic "Battle Armor" stylized "H"?
    3. Classic "Laser Power" "H"?
    4. New Adventures "H"?
    5. 2000 line "asterix"?
    6. 2000 MYP (cartoon) "H"?
    7. Other???

    I have to go with the Classic Cross. To me, that always was, and always will be He-man's Armor Symbol.

    Hey Captain Atkin, are you trying to sway the vote with your avatar? I'm so playing on that one. Not that it matters anyway. Elections are rigged, American Idol's rigged (especially if someone who has talent below par some of the people I've worked with and is from my hicktown college won it) and I'm sure we all know elected official polls are rigged in one form or anonther. Why would anyone wig out on a trivial Internet opinion poll?

    Seriously, I voted for the Battle Armor H. I mainly did it because that was the first figure I got when I was two along with Battle Armor Skeletor. It's funny because I've told people all this time that I was three and I looked at the year on the picture album and there's no question that I was two. Anyway, I remember one day I was pondering upon both the orignal He-Man and the BA He-Man and couldn't figure out one plausible reason as to why the logos were and should be different. At that age, it probably seemed more reasonable to have the H there as an obvious reason. Batman had a Bat, Supes had an S, and Spidey had a big spider. I'm sure that was my logic at that age.

    I liked the idea of his symbol being on top of Castle Grayskull's forehead. That'd be cool if that bit of symbolism translates over to the new toy line.
    I make my own MOTU video game stuff. Check it out.

    Classic cross on the regular one, naturally.

    BUT... All of the variants, that's right, ALL of the variants, should have the stylized combination of the H and M. Just like all of the variants in the original line had them.

    I personally prefer the Battle Armor stylized "H." It's an original design, and fits in well with the MOTU universe. My second choice is the original Cross.

    Classic cross
    That being said, I have grown quite fond of the Battle Armour "H" since having the BA He-Man staction, which funny 'coz I hated it as a kid! I could never get "Original He-Man" as I called it, I had to "make do" with old BA All fond memories now

    The classic cross for sure. But if Mattel decided to go with the 2000 line's asterisk I could understand and accept it.

    The cross of course. But, even in the classic line the cross was limited to only the "original" He-Man. All variants had the stylized "H" if I'm not mistaken.

    BTW...what's an asterix??? Do you mean ASTERISK??

    Asterisk

    That refers to the switch 4H made from the Iron Cross to the * symbol.

    That's if it fits... Grayskull is bigger.

    But again, I must ask. What would be this "other" crest and who on earth voted for it? It also begs the question why the OP put it as an option...

    True, but the cross did reappear for the Jet-Sled and Stilt Stalker armor toward the end of the line. Of course, any figure could wear it, but it was He-Man’s cross, and He-Man was packed with the dern thing in that super rare two-pack.

    Anyway, I vote the cross. The only other symbol which should be used is the Battle Armor symbol, for appropriate versions of He-Man if they were ever made.

    Cross!

    They could do the Battle-Armor "H" if they did a He-Man variant based on the old Battle Armor figure. That would make a nice exclusive.
    Awesome sticker included!

    I wouldn't want a Battle Armor exclusive. If anything, I would want him released as a regular figure. He is by far the favorite He-Man "variant".

    Release the initial He-Man figure with the original cross. Then down the road Mattel should release He-Man variants displaying the other logos, sure to atleast offer a battle armor He-Man (with the revolving chest), and a Comic Con exclusive of Laser Power He-Man.
