    Original Issue He-Man or DC Comics He-Man?

    Paint-wise, which do you like better, original issue He-Man or the DC Comics He-Man that comes in the 2-pack?

    No doubt, original forever... colors are more consistent and esthetical and chromatically harmonious. 80's Comic colors were based on a limited palette, and sometimes results were weird.. but that's part of their flavour...

    It's original recipe for me all the way.

    I really like DC He-Man, I like the darker colors of the original He-Man better, but the DC blond looks awesome.

    I voted original, but I really like the TRU head better.
    I'm hoping for a Disco Skeletor for the next subscription exclusive! Fully flocked!

    DC. I put the armor on him from The Goddess and he's my Pre-filmation minicomic He-man, which is what I want out of a He-man figure.
    Great Black Wizard figure please!

    Original (reissue) for me but I prefer the gray plastic chest harness that came with Goddess. Though I would prefer He-Man to be even more 80's colored. I wish his loin cloth/boots were the same color as Adora's skirt/boots and get rid of those red circles on the belt. Then that would be how I remember He-Man.

    My TRU Set hasnt arrived yet, but from all Ive seen I think I -overall- prefer the DC He-man, I know im in the minority but I Love the contrastinf 'Pink' belt Jewels, and I like the boots and Hair, the only thing that ruins him for me are the Yellow Armbands, but I wont know for sure until I have him in hand!

    I actually like the head better on the comic pack figure, but everything else is better on the standard MOTUC He-Man.

    I like the DC Comics He-Man with customized paintjob the best mostly because of the Animation & Comics accurate bracelets.

    What's also a favorite is the re-issue He-Man with The Goddess' gray plastic chest armor and Battle Armor He-Man's head (happen to have the hair down perfect!) & Boots.

    Original all the way for me. Still happy to see this two pack was released and the design was true to the comic.

    Peace.

    I voted original colors based on what I've seen of the DC 2-Pack He-Man pics online.

    I still have yet to see one in the store.
    I want my other half.

    Original(reissue) by far. The DC version is okay but the pink orbs and those boots really look off to me. As for the head on the DC version, the parts that are not blond match the figures face paint and make it look as though they didn't fully paint it.
