About a decade ago, convention figures were just ignored. Even the now sought after characters were cheap and unimportant. Joe characters would sell for under $20. I even missed the green version of the 2010 Convention Flint that sold for about $4. But, the stupid market of 2020 impacted convention figures more than pretty much any other group of Joe toys. Now, even common, unliked army builders are $50 figures. And, named characters can run over $700! That's just ridiculous. But, guys are hoarding figures, especially those with low production runs and there just aren't any in the market. They're going to come in the next couple of years, though. Until then, I'll just watch the insanity.
The parachute drop figures at the conventions were, at best, a mixed bag. Some were great. But, many were just outright bad. The 2010 Convention Flint is somewhere in the middle. If you have a liking to the character and great colors, he's great. But, if you hate fun, you also probably hate this figure. Which is why so few Joe collectors actually use him in any photos.
Content using this figure is pretty sparse. There was a time when this Flint appeared frequently enough. But, that was 12 to 13 years ago. Now, I can't even find enough content featuring him to fill an Around the Web post. So, instead, I'll just drop some random photos of this Flint. I've found he's a great complement to the under-rated 2002 Paratrooper Dusty. And, he works well with many figures of the repaint era.
