 Outback's Outpost 'ZANDAR AND ZARANA' By Mitchell Smith!
Welcome to the Outpost. 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 below and let us know! Make sure to check back for our next discussion.

I had Zandar back in the day but not Zarana. I have Zarana with earrings still on the list to find some day, but I'm not actively hunting right now. I got a fresher Zandar in the early 2000's. A few years back, I passed my "well loved" Zandar to a nephew. Sadly, I don't think the O-ring survived his playing. Uncle YorktownJoe may have to reclaim him and do some dissection and O ring replacement surgery. I never tried that yet, but maybe I will.

Anyway, back when I passed on Zarana originally, I thought about trying to find her. But by then they had made the change to the one without earrings. I think the first one looked more like a sibling of Zandar. So I passed again.

My current Zarana is the Comic Pack version, but with Comic Pack Lady Jaye's head.

Some day I'll track one of those down.
