Today I’m taking a look at Zartan’s sister and brother. Zarana & Zandar were introduced in the 1986 G.I.Joe lineup, and these were 2 figures I did get for Christmas that year. I really loved both figures. They both had a unique look and unique weapons. Zarana played a large roll in the cartoon and sort of replaced Zartan and Baroness as the master in disguise. I thought Zandar could have had a bigger part in the cartoon, but I only remember him having a small part.
Zarana was developed into this character that was the little kid that followed Zartan around and became the master in the end, but Zandar kind of got left out as far as developing the brother of Zartan. I think it would be cool to see both of these done up in 6 inch fashion, but I won’t hold me breath on that one.
Zarana had a couple nice upgrades and Zandar did get 1 modern upgrade but other then that I think these are 2 characters that did not get used enough in the story. Over all these are 2 of my favorite characters and I hope to see more of them in the future. Who is your favorite out of Zarana and Zandar.? Sound off AFTER THE JUMP and let us know!
