Chinese Exclusive Flint (Tiger Force Falcon) - Around The Web

In 1997, a scalp kiosk at a flea market on the other side of town had some carded Joes from China.  He wanted way more than I wanted to pay for them.  But, I remember seeing the Flint figure and thinking what a cool weapon was included with him.  (I didn't realize it was the Headhunter shotgun at the time as I had never seen a Headhunter.)  Fortunately, the advent of Ebay proved the figures were actually very common.  So common that I could open a carded version and enjoy one of the cooler and better done foreign exclusive figures.  Here's the best of the Chinese Flint from around the web.

  1. I never made even a token effort to get this figure. Not sure why.

    Trying to reach out to you, with Joeaday being on hiatus. Is there any way to contact you?

    1. Definitely. You can ping me on Twitter or on Facebook if you have those. I'm also active at og13 as Mike T. If that doesn't work, let me know here and I'll temporarily post an email address.

    I'm the only person not on Twitter or Facebook, and I'm not on og13 either. Would you mind posting the e-mail?

    Thanks!

  4. Such an odd thing for them to do. I guess the mold was MIA, but was china such a market that they had to have a Flint that was close to the card art?

  5. I’ve always assumed that the chinese releases we’re repurposed repaints/releases intended for 1995.

    The molds were all there to repaint this falcon in the 2000s, instead we got a convention exclusive nobody remembers.
