I like this figure , but not too crazy about the swords. Doesn't fit the character.
I do like the "face carrying" backpack and the "ripper" type rifle.
Can anyone tell me how to start a thread ?!?

Still, he's one of a few I just couldn't buy...even for $5.
the joes i didn't blow up with M-80's, my dad gave away. ughh!
but the silver lining is that i can completely justify starting from scratch with the 25th line! now, if I can just keep my 5 year old from breakin' stuff. already replaced one awe striker! haha!

Great review . But instead of an army builder MP...between my wife and I, we made an updated Law and Order. Works for me, anyway.
Also, the head of Zartan with the makeup kinda looks like frostbite, so RoC Frostbite has his unmasked look now.

Nice review Shogi. The figure is ok minus the head and that it is supposed to be Zartan.
Unfortunately, I feel the mis-use of Zartan's character in ROC will be as big a disappointment as the costume Cobra Commander wears.
I mean Hasbro and hell the movie industry found a great way to take easily the most interesting character in the entire GI JOE universe and water him down into almost meaningless.
What would have been the harm in throwing in the classic Zartan head cowel rather than run with his little blonde hair and a receding hairline. The actor playing him is way too old. He should have played him 10 years ago maybe. But this is just a fail all around.
Figure = 1 (I wish you could have added a zero option).
Actor = 5
Movie Character (Zartan) = 5
I hope they get money for a sequel. I hope it is much less campy and allows for a darker story. The story around Zartan and the Asharikage Clan would be amazing. I would love to see a swamp chase with swamp skiers and Thrasher's Thunder Machine.
This ROC Zartan will be a big miss for the GI JOE franchise.

The one thing I love about this figure is how he can double as a troop builder
"And I don't want the world to see me, cuz I don't think that they'd understand. When everythings made to be broken, I just want you to know who I am."

I brought Zartan and thought he was actually cool. i love the knives and the tatoo on his face. Good Movie transition but i hope hasbro will release a movie clothed Zartan figure with a hood on. SWEET!!!

This is one I took a pass on. I was never a Zartan fan, and am even less so of the RoC look. I have my 25e version, and that's enough.
Not only are you cripplingly ignorant, you whine about it as well.

I bought one to test the waters, to see if I would buy more of him like the Pit Commando.
He has a baby blue camo and the camo is a different design than the other Joes.
Though, the Joes themselves have different shades of camo as well, like the single pack Hawk and the Pit Commando match perfectly.
The only figure that has similiar camo so far is the Cover Girl figure.
I could see her leading a few of these MPs, other than that, they really stand out next to the rest of the Joes.
