Zartan is dressed as a GI Joe MP in this figure form. He has blue camo fatigues with a small ďskirtĒ acting as the bottom of his shirt. Zartanís head sculpt looks nice and menacing with some light paint apps under his eyes to look like the classic face markings only they appear to be fading away from his face as if heís in mid transformation. Zartanís backpack has a similar look to the classic backpack only this one has an actual hinge on it. Much like the original, it can hold a spare head (Instead of just a mask) to change Zartan fully into a generic MP. Both heads fit into the backpack perfectly, just not at the same time. The spare head has a generic face sculpt and a permanently attached hat. Zartan also has two knives and a sword that look like something youíd find at a fantasy knife store. Zartanís rifle has a large curved bayonet reminiscent of Ripperís classic rifle. Zartan comes with a Backpack, Spare Head, two Knives, Sword, Rifle, Missile Launcher with Missile and Cobra Stand.
This figure is a great version of Zartan in disguise, we rarely get to see in figure form. The extra head means you can buy multiples of this figure and create a whole squad of generic GI Joe MPís. The only bad points with this figure are the skirt which hinders the leg movement a bit and the hands which have a lot of flash and mold lines on them. Unfortunately that is a fault seen on multiple figures. The missile launcher is very generic looking.
Figure Rating: 9 out of 10

it's a decent figure if you use the m.p. head only.i think the paint apps on the zartan head should have been a bit darker so you could tell that it is who it's supposed to be.not saying it's hard to tell it's zartan,but it would have been nice to see more of the classic look for his character.overall i would give it an 8 out of 10 for zartan and a 9 out of 10 for a generic trooper due to the hands showing the mold lines which can be painted black for gloves.

This is a pretty good figure. He works as cannon fodder, or as an unmasked Shockwave. His sword and knives are cool, but he has a hard time holding the small one. And on mine, the backpack doesn't fit him that well.

I really dont see Zartan in this fig. Hasbro should have made him with his real costume...

In all fairness ( yes you should space a few lines betweeen alerts and spoilers), the figure in and of itself is a spoiler. It gives away a key plot point. Just like the doctor figure is. He was also describing the appearance of the figure in its relation to the plot. He just did a poor job of alerting us.

This is a good figure, good army builder too if you want many Joe MPs.

I like the figure. I wish the hat was removable so could put it on Zartan's head. I have 2 of 'em already and want at least 2 more but really wish I could have a Zartan head so can have him hiding out in a dio and people know it's Zartan.
Oh well, he'll just be the only hatless MP.

Well, now I understand why the head with the hat looks nothing like Arnold Vosloo.
