G.I. Joe Classified Deluxe Zartan Figure Revealed - Summer Exclusive?!?


Recommended Posts

Images have surfaced online via an overseas retailer Justin Hunt for what appears to be some kind of G.I. Joe Classified 6" Zartan Deluxe Figure.

The figure is packed with a ton of accessories including multiple masks, and alternate heads for Storm Shadow, Snake-Eyes and a skull. You also get Storm Shadow's bow and arrows to recreate the scene from the comics where Zartan impersonated Storm Shadow to kill the Hard Master. Besides all that you get the accessories that came with the previous Zartan as well as a sniper type riffle.

The packaging is also unique as it appears you can change the faces on the front cover like a pop-up type book.This packaging also strikes me as something done for a con exclusive. This may be Hasbro's G.I. Joe SDCC/Pulse-Con exclusive for this year.

Since the chest plate and knee pads have added metallic silver paint to them which differs from the original release. I can't say for sure, but since those are solid plastic and not transparent I don't think this figure has any kind of color-change ability like was featured on the original 80's figure. There is also no indication on the packaging that it would have color change ability.

When Hasbro gives us official details we will be sure to pass them on to you. Thanks to Ciarda for the heads up.

Uh, yeah . . . 

If anybody wants, they can check my post in the Retro Venom Exclusive thread to see how I feel about these little games Hasbro is playing. Or I can save you a trip:

!@#$ you, Hasbro. !@#$ you.

I'm good, some of the accessories are cool and the paint looks nice but not enough for me to double dip. 

I think you sum up most everyone’s feelings on this. Be interesting to see how it sales.

That's a cool exclusive set. I'm not sure I need it cuz I'm happy with the regular Zartan, but those accessories are tempting.

I dont even collect Joe figures and this is amazing to me. I love that box design as well as pretty fun hes got the old warm and cold color change effect. Im also a fan of all those accessories, especially the variations of his disguises. Not a terrible price for what youre getting, ESPECIALLY considering what they want for Venom who comes with so much less and features nothing comparative to this which is only a few bucks more.

HP better put a limit on this figure because I got a feeling this figure will sell out in less than 5 seconds...

Sometimes I get the feeling that HP limits what they sell just so it shows it as being sold out and they can brag and be cocky like their toys are in such high demand.

Cool figure. So we have gotten all the figures on the promo poster, plus Barbecue and Breaker. I'm looking forward to seeing the promo poster for the next block of figures. Hasbro has really hit a home run with GI Joe.

Shown below via seancarneyband are in-hand images for the newly announced 2021 Pulse-Con Exclusive G.I. Joe Classified Series Master of Disguise Zartan figure coming from Hasbro. While here in the US the figure is being released as a con exclusive, we had already seen the figure show up at retailers overseas several weeks ago. The figure comes with three masks and three alternate heads for different disguises. You get a big sniper rifle as well as Storm Shadow's bow and quiver with arrows. You also get the pistol, knife and backpack that comes with the regular version. The figure also has a color change feature so that when you put it in a cold place like your freezer the skin turns blue, which is reminiscent of the original Zartan figure Hasbro did back in the 80s. Finally it comes in packaging that allows you to change faces on the front cover. The price from Hasbro will be $36.99.

Ally Vipers are on that poster so no releases for those guys yet.

The color changing feature is cool, I'm glad for people that wanted it. I still stand by my original statement, the figure looks cool but the added features are not enough for me to buy it again and they certainly are not worth dealing with Hasbro Pulse on sale day.
