It looks like you have 2 distict figures to me. What are the date and country stamps? (I'm always asking that and I hope it doesn't get annoying)

I doubt that it is wear. It is too consistent and the rest of the figure doesn't look faded.

Do you recall where you got them?

To me if you look close enough the camo is the same design just faded.

How about this for an '85 Flint variation?

I noticed that Toyfare issue 90 has a picture of Flint with a very different looking head on page 45. Here's a comparison photo I took with my Flint figure:

So, what do you guys think? Is this variant for real?

I saw that too, and I think it's a custom head. Has to be. There's alot of guys out there that simply don't like the head to v.1 Flint. Me? I think the smirk is what makes him cool (reflects on his first app. in the comic too), but that's just me.

As a matter of fact, I don't believe it's a 3&3/4" size custom at all. It looks like the eight inch Joes by the one dude that makes Joe customs from Marvel Legends. It looks so familiar like I'd seen it on the customs forum before.

But getting back on topic. . .

I think Mr. 82to87 could really have a possible variant. Can't wait to hear more on this as I am a huge fan of the v.1 Flint.
