|Hydron Sketch Card by Taylor Lymbery|
Today's deviation is Hydron! As I get more into collecting ALL runs of the He-Man action figures, I keep my eyes open for a Hydron toy. This is one of those figures that, "got away" in my youth. By the time that the New Adventures of He-Man toy line came out in 1989, I had already started looking at other toys. I know that I have already stated this in a previous New Adventures of He-Man sketch card blog entry, but I was thrown off by the futuristic look, the difference in figure scale and the packaging. I didn't think of this line as a He-Man toy line. So, I ended up passing up a Hydron. I have gained great respect for the New Adventures toy line. The toys are uber radically cool. But...back to Hydron. I would have to say that out of the heroes in the new Adventure of He-Man series, Hydron is an absolute favorite for me. From the coloring of his uniform to the molded flippers for feet and BRIGHT primary yellow accessories (including the yellow hose system that hooks up to his clear bubble helmet), this guy could have been the Scuba Steve of my youth. If only there were a way to turn back the clock. If there were only a way to go back in time and make myself, or my mom, buy this action figure for me. If there was another way to get one... Wait a second, I'm an adult that collects toys! I have ebay! Thank you pseudo time machine! Now if I could get past the rather high collector's prices...You can also see this sketch card here.
HEY EVERYBODY! DALLAS COMIC CON IS COMING UP QUICK! READ BELOW!
Now, I'm going to have a bunch of these sketch cards available at the Dallas Comic Con. I'll be selling them for $10. I am also opening commissions of sketch cards. They will also be $10 + shipping and handling which will be $6 in the continental United States of America. I'll have to get a quote for any territories outside of that. I will also open up my colored page line drawings for commissions. Same price as the sketch cards, but I'll have to check on the shipping (due to the difference in size). If you want to see what I mean by colored sheet drawing, go here. If you want a sketch card, send me an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Name your character and we will go from there.
The Convention will be May 19th-20th. It will be at the Irving Convention Center that is located at 500 W Las Colinas Blvd. , Irving, TX. Tickets for Saturday will be $25.00 for 11:00am to 7:00pm, and tickets for Sunday will be $20.00 for 11:00am to 4:00pm. If you happen to go to the Convention, stop by and say hi to Rob and I.
