MASTER OF DISGUISE
Series: Twenty Three (2007)
Zartan (version thirteen) was released with the third wave of single packs celebrating the 25th Anniversary of G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero.
Zartan came with a backpack, a rifle, a mask, a knife, and a black display stand.
Zartan's backpack opens up to store the mask inside.
Alias: Too numerous to list
Motto: "I can be anyone, anywhere. You will never know that you are talking to me, unless I wish it."
ZARTAN can alter his skin color at will to blend in with his environment. He is also a master of make-up and disguise, a ventriloquist, a linguist (over 20 languages and dialects), an acrobatic-contortionist and a practitioner of several mystic martial arts. Very little is known of his background and origins, but most security agencies agree that he must have had European military academy training (probably St. Cyr).
There are three card variations of Zartan, all dealing with the "Color Changing Face" Starburst - earliest versions came with the starburst printed on the card, later versions had none, while still later versions had the starburst applied as a sticker.
There is some debate as to whether or not there are variations of the head and neck, some reports claim there are figures with no color changing features, while others claim the head will change colors but not the neck. It is still unknown at this time whether these variations exist. The easiest way to tell is to place the figure in the freezer and see. If the figure is still carded, this feature will still work.
Zartan (version thirteen) was created using all new parts.
