After months of searching, I picked up Liquid Venom on Ebay along with a couple of hard to get 2.5 sets I already had. I think I might have seen this set at Target once and passed on it (this was before I was into Sigma 6), and once the line was ended I rushed to scoop everything up. The 2.5 Zartan in this set was a must for me since I am a huge Zartan fan, and the only other one made in this scale was half clear to make him appear invisible and I really didn't like it.
Plus I really hate fixed posed figures and really only go after the ones that are posable. This was literally the last thing I needed for my collection.
I know most of you collect the large figures, which I've bought a few of, but they are just too big for me, and what really got me into Sigma 6 were the vehicles. So since I hated the fixed poses, I've gone after as many of the poseable figures I've could and customized them.
So with Zartan I'll clip his right wrist, turn it 90 degrees and give him a pistol or something. You can see him next to a couple of other figs I am in the middle of working on, like the Baroness with her leg down, Snake Eyes with a different head and swords on his back, and Firefly with his submachine gun (I am considering putting the flare thing in his other hand) from the fixed posed version. Someday I'll finish them all.
BTW, the Shipwreck fig in the other set is kind of a let down, but after I am done with him, he'll go with those Sigma 6 boats pretty well, but the Lt Stone on the snow board is great. He clips on and off the snowboard which I'll never use anyway, and I cut his waist to that the front of his body faced the front rather than off to the side, clipped off the stupid gun flashes from his pistols, and he makes a great crewman in any of the vehicles. While I like the Lt Stone that comes with the Dragonhawk, this fig better represents what you see in the show, and that's why its a favorite of mine.
So if you are a 2.5 Sigma 6 fan, enjoy the pics and drool.

That looks cool. Why couldn't we have gotten something like that for our 25th Zartan instead of that Little Tykes swamp thing-a-ma-bob?

Oh and congrats OP. I may not have liked the Sigma 6 line but it's always good to see people get something they really wanted.

Dang I threw out my mini Zartan 25th ski-thing! That would have been perfect for this scale. The Sigma 6 ski thing is really not that great. As a matter of fact, most of the ones not packaged in actual boxes like the Firebat and Vamp aren't that great. But whatever its Sig 6 and I love Sig 6.
