Series: Ten (1991)
Flint (v3) was first released carded as part of the tenth series (1991) as part of the Eco-Warriors subset. He was discontinued domestically in 1992.
Flint (v3) came with a yellow-orange helmet, a blue rifle, a blue water rifle (that fired water), a blue and orange backpack (that held water), and an orange hose that connected the rifle and backpack.
Instructions how to use the water-firing weapon were printed on the cardback behind the action figure.
Birthplace: Wichita, Kansas
Primary Specialty: Infantry
Secondary Specialty: Helicopter Pilot
A graduate of Special Forces School as well as the Flight Warrant Officers' School and a former Rhodes Scholar, Flint was a natural choice to head up the new G.I. Joe Environmental Force. When equipped with a HALO (High Altitude Low Opening) parachute, Flint can also be inserted into a Cobra toxic sludge operation with his Anti-Tox missiles and laser weapons system and stop evil polluters before they can do their damage.
"All those toxic waste Cobras had better watch out, now that FLINT is on the job. He is one tough, snake-eating, hill-climbing, no-gruff-taking, no-nonsense paratrooper and when it comes to polluters, it's like he has a personal axe to grind. The last guy he caught puffing on a cigarette in an elevator ended up eating it."
No variations of Flint (v3) are known to exist.
Flint (v3)'s body is entirely original - no parts were taken from other figures.
The entire mold was re-used to create Flint (v5) (2001).
Like all the Eco-Warriors figures, spots on Flint were covered with a special color-change plastic. When the figure was hit with water, the plastic changed colors to simulate "battle damage."
