I believe it is because big boa came out in that '86/'87 lineup which had a lot of animal themed bad guys which sucked. Big Boa actually was kind cool. I say that because his helmet was unique. However, he didn't have much as accessories are concerned considering he was bare chested and had boxing gloves. Kinda boring. I think they were going to make a Rocky Balboa figure originally with much of the figure parts but something fell through with the copyrights and trademarks.
If you look in the original G.I.JOe Order of Battle comics, Rocky Balboa was listed. I thought they were doing him next after Sgt. Slaughter and the Fridge. However, in the final issue, there was a retraction which stated Rocky Balboa is and never was a G.I.Joe item. Kind of sad.
Then that year Big Boa came out. I figure Hasblo slapped together something to get the figure parts out.
Does anyone know anything about this?
With modern sculpting, perhaps Hasblo could reinvigorate Big Boa.
But I definitely hope they make the NIGHT VIPER before Big Boa.

When I first looked through the pics, I was wondering why Zartan was a wizard with a dwarf henchman.

I don't see any Raptor in this. Just because he is bare chested and has a bird?
Also there is nothing wrong with Big Boa. His design was a bit off, but the character was fine. When you consider that he is meant to be a trainer, it explains his shirtless look. He's dressed for boxing. Realy, how is one guy with a helmet and stranger than any of the others?

I'll put the Jungle Viper's ghillie suit on Zartan to make a "more sane" Raptor.

Zartan is NOT Raptor inspired. The falcon on the staff is not part of Zartan's normal gear. It's part of his disguise as a nomadic tribesman.
And I'm sure people will debate this just like they did when I said Brendon Frasier was Sgt. Stone.
Looking for at reasonable prices:
