About This Sixth Scale Figure

Though his true identity and birthplace are unknown, the mercenary called ZARTAN is one of the G.I.JOE Team's most dangerous and devious foes. That's because ZARTAN could be anyone, anywhere at any time. He is fluent in more than twenty languages and dialects, a ventriloquist, and capable of imitating the voice and physical appearance of virtually anyone he wishes. It's a set of talents that the terrorist organization COBRA finds particularly appealing. The group frequently employs ZARTAN to use these skills to deceive the Joe team and gain access to information that COBRA can use against anyone who dares oppose them.

Yet ZARTAN would not have benefitted from multiple lucrative assignments from COBRA COMMANDER himself had the master of disguise not proven himself in battle. He is a master of martial arts and archery, and he commands a savage group of other mercenaries known as the DREADNOKS. Despite them all having a collective foe in G.I.JOE, ZARTAN only looks out for himself in the end. He is always seeking new personalities to imitate, new bank accounts to empty, and new methods for disposing of those who cross him. As he delves further into the lives of others, though, ZARTAN might be in danger of losing himself in the process.

Fantastic Update to a timeless character!

Zartan has been one of my favorite characters since he first appeared in 1984, but sadly he has not received very many great updates over the years. Sideshow's version may possibly be the best version ever! Fantastic head sculpt, perfect armor and spectacular accessories! A must buy!

Sweet detail!!!

One of my all time favorites, in all his sixth scale glory! Love all his weapons, as well as the mask carrying back pack. An awesome representation of a bad mofo of a character! Well done sideshow!

Master of Disguise

Zartan is an amazing figure! I'm really glad I picked this one up. I love this figure and all the extras. The arsenal is incredible. Forget 3.75 scale, I'm a 1/6 scale collector from now on! Keep them coming, Sideshow.

My favorite Cobra

Looks awesome, can't wait for my next one.

Best yet!

This is not only a unique and charismatic figure but also boasts SSC's finest work to date in this, it's most exciting 1/6 scale line. From paint apps, sculpt, poseability, and accessories, home run all around. Thank you!

My favorite one yet.

I'm sad to say that when this first came out, I wasn't a huge fan. But somewhere along the way, it dawned on me that this was fantastic. After buying it, this beats out the Joes I've bought in the past. I LOVE everything about this figure and hope Destro is just as good.

No Disguising This Masterpiece. Reviewing the Exclusive Edition

Zartan may be the best GI Joe figure to date. His muscle mass, accessories , costume, and overall quality is flawless. I'm so happy I bought this figure.

Two words.. Bad A$$

I picked up Zartan yesterday at a local retailer and he is freak'n awesome. Just the gear alone is amazing, the compound bow really draws back for killer poses. Everything is ultra detailed down to the magnetic closures on the ammo pouches. His face sculpt is perfect, nice smirk.

5 Stars is a No-Brainer

Trully Awesome Figure! This made me more of a Zartan fan than I used to be. Glad to see the Ratchet knees are a thing of the past. Bring on Destro so Zartan has someone to bicker with!

Truly Outstanding!

Zartan has surpassed my expectations! Great details on fabric, the armor holds up perfectly, the magazine belt pouch buckles hold nicely by magnets. Good weapons, especially the classic laser pistol. A greenish mask would have been the icing, but maybe include it in a swamp skier environment set.

"My, What a Memorable Face You Have..."

Life-life sculpt(s), solid articulation, realistic "worn" clothing, all awesome. Toy-accurate pistol, body armor, disguise mask and backpack, and the working compound bow is a (delicate) marvel of design! Only thing missing is color-changing skin! But it's definitely the best Master of Disguise yet.

Zartan in all his glory

Got the Exclusive and this figure doesn't disappoint! If you're a Zartan fan this figure is a must!

ZARTAN! WOW! Reviewing the Exclusive Edition

Can it get any better? I think not! This figure is awesome. clothes are tight and accessories are perfectly matched for the master of disguise. Looking forward to Destro, Baroness, Major Bludd and Xamot & Tomax! Bring em!! Keep it up Sideshow! Thank you!

My first SSC

I have been waiting for the perfect opportunity to pick up a Sideshow Collectible. I wanted my first to be perfect and worth the wait. I have no way of comparison but this figure and accessories is beyond my expectations. Just a perfect representation of the Master of Disguise. My one and done mentality of collecting these figures is in major jeopardy right now.


WOW, Sideshow stepped up their game with this bad boy and knocked it right outta the Park... everything about this figure screams it, buy it NOW!

Simply Amazing

SSC has done it again, this figure almost supasses the Firefly figure in every single way, the Compound Bow and numerous accessories is what makes this collectible shine, could have done without the exclusive "Evil Duke" head though, SSC keeps delivering the goods!!!

Outstanding! Reviewing the Exclusive Edition

Zartan has surpassed my expectations! Great details on fabric, the armor holds up perfectly, the magazine belt pouch buckles hold nicely by magnets. Good weapons, especially the classic laser pistol. A greenish mask would have been the icing, but maybe include it in a swamp skier environment set!

Outstanding! This is the GRAIL! of this line!

Wow! Sideshow outdone themselves and nailed this character! The details and weapons are fantastic! Hopefully when Destro is revealed,He'll the new king on the block.5 Stars!!

Astonishing in every way possible...

The wait was crazy long, but boy, was it worth it. Somehow this piece is even more impressive than the photos portray. Sideshow went beyond their usual ridiculous standards, and went nuts! The amount of detail is so rad! Thank you so much for putting so much effort in to this character that I love!

Another Perfect Figure Reviewing the Exclusive Edition

This is as close to the perfect figure as you can get, this ranks up there with Firefly as the best G.I. Joe Collectible to date. Would have been the best if they would have had a greenish mask portrait instead of the Evil Duke, definitely a home run here
