Voice Compare » G.I. Joe » Flint

Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Flint with sound clips and images.
Flint is the codename for Dashiell R. Faireborn. Flint was a warrant officer on the original G.I. Joe series and was one of the highest men on the chain of command. Later he would be romantically linked with Lady Jaye. It was confirmed on the 20th Anniversary Transformers DVD release that Flint and Lady Jaye had a child together, which was Marissa Fairborne who appeared on the Transformers Series. Flint did not appear on the DiC series, Sigma Six (although he did have an action figure for that series), or the recent G.I. Joe video Game.

He did however appear on three parts of the G.I. Joe Resolute series, in which Charlie Adler supplied the voice as well as the Valor vs Venom and Spy Troops projects where Brian Dobson took on the role.

Finally, he has made an appearance, voiced by his original voice actor Bill Ratner on both Family Guy and Robot Chicken.

EDITOR'S OPINION

First of all, let's get it out of the way that Dobson is easily the worst Flint voice so far.  Flint is not supposed to be some punk member of the Joe Team he is supposed to be authoritative.  As far as the rest go, both Adler and Messner are completely awesome in this role and I really don't know if I could actually pick which one of those two I prefer. 

Luckily, I don't have to as Bill Ratner signed, sealed, and delivered this role like no one else could ever hope to do.  I am truly baffled as to how Ratner didn't do more voice work over his career in cartoons with as an epic voice as he has, simply amazing!

1st: Ratner, 2nd-A: Ratner, 2nd-B: Messner, 4th: Dobson

I always loved Bill Ratner as Flint. He has such a great voice and he made Flint a fun character.

Charlie and Johnny both sound very good and seem good choices for him. I wish that Brian got more to work with and probably a better understanding of the character. I'm sure he could do very good work as well. He has the right voice, but not enough dialogue and the character is off.

Dobson & Messner are good, but Ratner is the definitive voice.

@Celeste Gotta give the voice director of Family Guy for getting Mr. Ratner back for that brief cameo by Flint! =D

Its Brian, all three Dobsons were in the show though. Brian voiced Flint, Paul voiced Barrel Roll and Michael voiced Cobra Commander
