G.I. Joe POC Zartan

I read somewhere how the original 1980’s Zartan had such a flawless design that any other rendition  or reincarnation of him would be doing his character a great disservice.I can agree with that to some extent but i also believe that you can re create and modernize a character without straying too far from it’s original design.While the ROC version of Zartan looks nothing like the cartoon or comic book versions,it gives you a glimpse of what Zartan may have looked like before taking on his more iconic 80’s look.Then we have this version of him. The POC version of  Zartan does a good job of  blending in a little bit of the old school with his signature face paint and  hoodie  while adding in extras like a pet Falcon and alternate weapons .Staying true to the original,Zartan comes with a disguise, an alternate vest and head which can be switched out if ever you wanted to display him in stealth mode.I only wish they would have given him the ability to change color like the 80’s version did,but other than that this is a pretty good rendition of  Zartan. IMO the POC  line of Joes were a darn near perfect action figure as far as character design and quality went and even the packaging looked great. I’ll continue to hunt down more from this line in the future.
