oh dear, the Major was a good start and im still not sure about the Red Torch but this Flint figure isn't good, kinda reminds me of the garish camo colours they put on the 40th Action Man Soldier figure, i hope to god they haven't screwed the shadows up :-|

Ugh! They made Flint's hair brown, like the cartoon. It should be black. I hate when they do that!

:roll:

Flint is up

nothing too special on this one , at least for me !

at least the club is giving us a preview 3 out of 4 days now ! hopefully soon we will see the RED SHADOWS troopers
I'm definately interested in the Flint if someone ends up with a duplicate.

ya sean very good to see you back on here! you planted the the whole idea of the coloring project thing and should check out all that you started

as for flint.......................

its funny ( but true) it being Flint ,everyone is complaining, including myself and its the LOOSER of the set so far, but had they given him a red Beret and called him SKIP it would have been a sure fire win LOL small little detail like that would have saved this figure for most people LOL

I can see why they added FLint to the set and i think its NOT A BAD IDEA ( still would have preferred SKIP ) . FLINT is not only MARVEL UK ACTION FORCE ( a nod to ACTION FORCE FANS of later Eras ) but also a major US character to get US collectors into this. IMVHO

Oh sure, Flint's an all-round winning choice, everybody likes him. I'm wondering if this is just a badly attempted nod towards Z Force?

At least Action Force fans who buy the set will be able to give him a home among the boys in green.

That's what I thought too, it'd be easy to sort that beret out ;-)
