GIJoe Classified Series Flint

You probably guessed he would be up next. 

Something seems off about Flint. His face looks kind of wide. And with that haircut I'm not really seeing him. Maybe I'm just not used to seeing him without his beret... He's got a seasoned appearance. The facial features and facial lines are well defined. He's got a scar at his left eye. I'm not sure where he got that from. Despite his rugged exterior you can still sense a softer side to him from his gentle expression. He's quite a jovial character (from RAH) so I like that. The body reuses Duke's body with some new gear. The knee pads and shin guards are different. And they gave him a protective vest and a new belt which are separate pieces. The vest has great detail on it. I especially like the shotgun shells stored on the front. They are an essential part of Flint's look. I liked that they were painted, and also the buckles on his belt. The camouflage deco on his pants was also well done. 

Some close-ups of his face. There's nice detail for his hair. They did the shaven sides of his head really well. And here you can better see the scar at his left eye.

Accessories. He comes with his beret, a pistol and a shotgun. 

With his beret on he looks much better. Now that's more like Flint. It fits snugly on his head and it does not fall off. The shotgun has a cool feature, and that is it can be opened to be loaded. Nice!

He can hold the shotgun in either hand. It looks a little better in his left thanks to the up and down hinge. 

He can store the shotgun in the holster on his back. I think it would be easier for him to draw it from his left side.

Articulation. He's got a ball hinge upper neck, ball joint lower neck, ball hinge shoulders, butterfly joints, bicep swivel, double jointed elbows, swivel hinge right wrist, swivel and up and down hinge left wrist, ab crunch, ball joint waist, ball hips with drop down hinge, thigh swivel, double jointed knees, boot swivel and ankle hinge and pivot. He can look up and down well. The vest prevents him from bending forward much.

Comparison shots.

Nice figure. Thanks for viewing!

Nice! I'm really excited for Flint and Lady Jaye both. I wish Flint had another piece of gear, though. He feels like he should have also had a knife or something with him.
