    He-Man belt preference

    There seem to be two basic shades of orange used for the original He-Man figure's belt. My preference is the sort of almost salmon-orange belt shown here:



    I assume that must have been what I had as a kid, as I seem to strongly prefer it but I can't articulate why.


    There's also a sort of more basic orange version:



    Which do you prefer?

    I'm colorblind (but I do see color) so they look the same to me....

    Just looking at the pictures, I prefer the basic orange. The salmon orange is pretty close to the colour of his loincloth, so it blends in, whereas the basic orange pops and gives a more dynamic look to the whole color scheme.

    Basic Orange - it contrasts better.

    The basic orange just seems more "natural" to me.

    As a kid i would not have noticed any colour difference and if i did i would not have cared . They both look great . Now this heman i had as a child . All his colours belt included really bugged me.

    I... I actually call it, yellow belt He-man, I don't know where I got it from. But it's the one I prefer by a long shot!. I borderline can't stand salmon orange.

    You don't know the lengths I went through to get my yellow belt He-man...

    Bodies... Bodies everywhere!, on the floor!... not really, but I did work hard to find it. AND LOVE IT.
