    The Official Captain Hydron Thread

    About time Hydron got a thread!

    Captain Hydron is the captain of the Starship Eternia, which he co-pilots with Lieutenant Flipshot. He's also the field leader of the Galactic Guardians and the MOTU-verse's second Heroic water character.

    Unlike a lot of other water characters in other toylines and fiction who are so specialized that they are only seen on "undersea missions", this character is particularly prominent despite his SCUBA-like nature.

    Like his second look better, looks like Trap Jaw meets Horde Trooper meets shark. I didn't watch or get any of the original NA toys. A main reason was because the heroes looked so plain, so human.
    Top Ten MOTUC wants: Sagitar, Great Black Wizard, Fang-or, Dragstor, Peekablue, Skeletor's Skeleton Warriors, Despara, Evil Seed (all era) w/Odiphus, Illumina w/Sleetah, Lady Slither

    I think bulking the NA figures up to MOTUC proportions will really help those characters, like bulking up Bow from his original figure did.

    Fans seem to like it when characters get such makeovers.

    I want the Original Hydron first...
    I wonder if he's the GP that was announced for this year...
    From the crotch, all the way to the neck and left thigh will be made from reused parts.
    Head, Armor, Lower Legs, Feet, possibly the right thigh would be the new parts.
    FINALLY!! GLIMMER IS IN MY SHELF!! Now I need a Crita!! Crita is to Mara what Evil Lyn is to Teela. If we ARE getting Mara, then we NEED Crita.

    I hope he is. He's a faction leader.

    I don't understand the aquatics theme in a space adventure, and I can't say I like it. But his "second" look there is far superior to the first, and his uniform seems more middle ground. I reeeeeally hope they make that version.

    who was the first??

    For the NA fans, I hope we get them but I have very little interest, make em cool andI'll buy em, Optic is a fave but again te villains of NA were more interestng looking that all the heroes. I'm not too fussed on NA. but MOTU is for all of us, not just me.

    I prefer iconic looks for any first release characters, so however they appeared for the majority of the time is the look I think they should come in or be basd on at least.

    I think Darius will be the leader of the Galactic Guardians/Protectors in MOTUC just like he was always intended to be in the original toy line.

    I do really want a Hydron figure but I'd prefer Darius and Flipshot/Icarius first.

    As a figure he should come as his original figure but include his spin fist accessory, cause the reality of a variant of him is highly unlikely, and I wish Flipshot had come with his varient weapon as well.

    Would be cool, but probably unlikely. He'd need to come with his speargun/trident thingy, and probably a masked head with removable helmet (like Marlena), and a regular unmasked head. That would probably put the kibosh on any other accessories, given the increase in production costs.

    Bring him on! Most likely the very next Galatic Guardian to be revealed for classics. As much as I love Hydron I would like to see someone else take the spot. It would be more of a suprise that way. and you know he will come out into the line eventually. the others I fear... most people don't know about them or care enough to. It will take having them revealed into the line sooner while fans are involved in the line.

    I hope he comes out later this year! Flipshot is badly outnumbered!

    I would like very much for him to have his helmeted head. I would like that for all the N/A guardians.

    I think it's just a bit over the top to say he shouldn't be in the sub. Karatti? Maybe. Not so much with Hydron.

    It's one of those things where, not to be blunt, people just need to get over it a little bit. This line is for all kinds of people. Not just vintage-only fans, even if they were in the majority. If ONE figure in a sub of 12 figures is that upsetting, then subbing may not be for you.
    This.

    But are we really still arguing about Hydron? Dear oh dear. He's probably (unfortunately) the only NA figure we'll get in 2014. Big deal. If you don't want him just sell him and get on with it.

    And that bio is a train wreck of rambling nonsense. Finally, maybe our heroes should go back to calling themselves "The Heroic Warriors" since Skeletor defeating them at the last ultimate battleground clearly makes him and his forces "The Masters of the Universe."
