Flint was a Rhodes Scholar and earned his degree in English Lit. Bored by the Groves of Academe, he enlisted in the Army and applied the tenacity and concentration he had used so well scholastically to grind his way through Airborne School, Ranger School, Special Forces School and finally Flight Warrant Officers School...Graduating each with top honors. A thorough tactical planner, Flint drafted and personally led a half dozen rescue missions in hostile territories that for obvious reasons of security were never publicized let alone admitted to.

"We had thought COBRA had us in the stinking dungeon for good-So we didn't know what was going down when we heard that chopper comin' in and all the heavy hardware going off like the Fourth of July. Then somebody kicked down the door to our cell and when the smoke cleared, there was Flint with that lop-sided grin sayin' 'C'mon boys, we're going home...'."

Variations

The G.I.Joe Convention release came with a gray pistol and a black rifle.

Body Construction

Flint's body is completely original - all new body parts.

Flint's entire body and mold were re-used to make Flint (v2/Tiger Force) (1988) and Flint (v9/Night Force) (2004). Flint's arms and waist were used to create Claymore (1986).

Starting with this series (Series Four, 1985), the head joint on G.I.Joe figures was changed into a head "ball." This ball allowed the head to look up and down, in addition to left and right.

International Variants

Flint was released in the United Kingdom and Europe on G.I. Joe and Action Force cards.

Estrela released Flint in Brazil in their Comandos em Ação line as Muralha.

Takara released Flint in Japan in 1986.

Funskool began releasing Flint in India in 1993. He would be subsequently released there on and off for at least the next ten years.
