Tiger Force Flint is 90% the same Flint we got way back in wave 1. He has modified Shipwreck arms showcasing rolled up sleeves and a watch sculpted on the left arm now. The gloves are new also. Unfortunately the crotch hasn't been updated yet, so Flint still can't sit properly. The left hand has the best working trigger finger I've seen. Also of note is that the head looks slightly different. This is probably due to it now being cast in a Caucasian skin tone rather than being painted that color. TF Flint comes with a Handgun, Shotgun and GI Joe Stand.
This figure is good representation of the original Tiger Force version. The biggest plus for this figure is the new arms. I'm not a fan of the "Popeye" type lower arms though. I think it was a novel idea on Shipwreck, but on Flint, it looks off.
Figure Rating: 6 out of 10

The modified Shipwreck arms are better than the dreaded Duke arms, no doubt, but I still don't like them. Too muscular. If this was Big Boa or somebody that was SUPPOSED to be ripped, then it would make sense. But it's not. I don't want to know what a man has to do to get such disproportionately muscular forearms (other than eating a can of spinach :P)

Honestly, I thought this was a great homage. I appreciate it when HASBRO dives into the different sub-groups for updates.
I would have liked a fix for the crotch though, so I’d probably rate him at 7½/10.

I wish they would come away from the massive forearms. I like that they are trying to do away with the Duke arms, but there should be something they can do to make a general arm piece that could work for "normal" joes.
I wish all the hands had great trigger fingers like this one. I want it on both hands on every figure.
