Bio: Flint was a Rhodes Scholar and earned his degree in English Lit. Bored by the Groves 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.
Comments: "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 goin' home...'"

Points of Interest:
The Flint (Tiger Force Leader) figure accurately updates the original design which debuted in the original G.I. Joe A Real American Hero’s Tiger Force sub-line in 1988. Unlike the original figure, the 2008 Flint features removable webbing, while the original 1988 figure had the webbing moulded to its chest.
