ROCK 'N ROLL / FLINT (v6)
TACTICAL OPERATIONS SPECIALIST
Series: Seventeen (2001)
Rock 'n Roll (v6) was released as part of the seventeenth series (2001), packaged exclusively with the Toys R Us exclusive G.I.Joe Headquarters.
In 2002, Hasbro continued to make the figure available with the G.I.Joe Headquarters repackaged for the "G.I. Joe vs Cobra" line. The figure's name was changed to Flint (v6). Erroneously, the filecard enclosed remained Rock 'n Roll's.
This figure came with no accessories.
Birthplace: Malibu, CA
Primary Specialty: Infantry/Machine Gunner
Secondary Specialty: Physical Training Instructor
Rock 'n Roll loves loud noises. Whether it's ear-splitting guitar riffs or heavy machine gun fire, it doesn't matter, it's all music to his ears. A G.I. Joe from the team's inception, Rock 'n Roll has been blasting firepower in the Cobra direction ever since. Now stationed at G.I. Joe Headquarters, Rock 'n Roll heads the armament division, lending his expertise in tactical defensive systems, equipment maintenance and heavy weapons repair. Even with added responsibility, he still retains the quirky sense of humor he is famous for: A dedicated soldier, Rock 'n Roll is always ready to lay down cover fire and guide the team to their target without missing a beat. You can bet the Cobra troops attempting to infiltrate the Headquarters are singing the blues at the mere mention of his name.
No variations of Rock 'n Roll / Flint (v6) are known to exist.
This figure's body mold was originally used to create Flint (v4) (1994).
Versions of Rock 'n Roll
In 2008, Rock 'n Roll was renamed to "Ssgt. Rock 'n Roll." In 2009, he was renamed again to "Bench-Press." So while there are multiple names, they are all based on the character "Rock 'n Roll."
