Flint hails from Wichita, Kansas. He is a Rhodes Scholar and holds a degree in English literature. He graduated with top honors from Airborne School, Ranger School, Special Forces School and Flight Warrant Officers School. As a master tactician, he also oversaw several strategically important rescue missions. Because of his credentials, Duke brought him in to the G.I. Joe Team.
Flint was first released as part of series 4 in 1985. Common elements of many of his appearances are his beret and his choice of a shotgun for a weapon.He was also available in 1986 and was discontinued in 1987. Later the figure was repainted and released as part of the Tiger Force line in 1988.
He has always been my favorite Joe. I know Duke is the Poster child but I've always looked up to Flint. As silly as that may sound. Like may other "grown" kids my age we all grew up watching the cartoon. Then the "Resolute" version came out. I was 50/50, I liked the look but I didn't like the changes. But they grew on me. Again the Movie, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra in 2009 made me all kinds of happy. Except the Snake Eyes/Storm Shadow story and the Cobra Commander story and the Duke/Baroness story...
I was mad When the List of "star' Joes didn't include Flint. So the Custom I'm posting is my vision of a "Modern" look not from the Movie, but a Real American Hero. I Like the digital design of the ACU don't care to much for the Velcro thou. I'll be the first to state that my paint skill needs more work, but practice makes perfect rite? The body is made of lots of different items listed below, but if I've missed any detail drop me a line and I'll fill in the blanks.
