Mattel’s March 2014 Club Eternia subscription figure is Hydron from ‘New Adventures.’
He’s ready to dive into the most challenging situations on land, under water, or in space. This New Adventures hero comes with his vintage trident, removable air tanks and removable head dome for underwater battles. Complete your Galactic Protectors collection with this captain of the cosmos!
Hydron is a character from the New Adventures of He-Man animated series as we as the toy line based on that series. Hydron is the leader of the Galactic Protectors and hauls from the planet Primus. In the pilot episode we see Hydron, along with Flip Shot (now Icarius) leave their universe and travel back in time to search for He-man to help them fight the newly arrived Skeletor and his minions.
Hydron ads a bit more color to our shelves with his light blue and yellow color scheme. He’s a spaceship captain that comes from an island so he’s also a diver that loves to wear full scuba gear all the time. It’s no goofier than a fire-fighter with a big robot elephant head I guess. Hydron has quite a few new parts including his flipper feet, shins, one thigh, forearms/gauntlets and head in addition to his over torso piece.
In his bio they refer to his real name as: Daniel Ripper Jr. (will we ever get DR Sr?) but I think he should have been named Fin. Look at all the fins on this guy! On his gloves, his shins, even on his hat (which wouldn’t help him be any more aqua-dynamic in the water with a helmet on over it.
His helmet, hoses and scuba tank are all removable.
Hydron also come with his trident gun.
The hose attachment on the front where it connects to the helmet seems a bit high when compared to the vintage figure, but I’ve seen some folks correct that already by sort of wedging it down into those two ridges in the front of his costume.
But at long last our trio of heroes are united and Icarus gets his best friend to hang out with again.
