I have to tell you this was harder than expected you see I started this with a DCUC superman body and made the perfect head sculpt but to get the collar I had cut it off a DC Direct fig and it was all Sculpted perfectly. And I had this brilliant idea to use a white primer on the thing and it happened to be a spray primer. It was horrible horrible propellent it came out clumpy and was horrible, it ruined the fig. I tried to salvage it and painted it up and it just began to look worse and worse. I tried for a year to fix this stupid project. Then the Booster gold came out and I new that if i could salvage the head and certain parts like the forearms I was going to be able to salvage this project that had caused me so much grief. So I did I salvaged the sculpted head swapped the forearms and repainted the whole booster gold and I was extremely happy.

Well they are kind of needed characters. I know companies love to remake the same fig a million times but after so many you need to make the teammates. Flash needs the Speed Force Alliance and the Rogues. Plus 4horsemen have been teasing me with pics of Jay for over a year. I had to have them ready for his release. I am right now missing one required speedster and one not so required one Jessie Quick, and John Fox. That is not to say I do not want to make Joan Swift Jay's 3rd sidekick,or blue and red Trinity, Trajectory,XS, the Tornado twins and the rest but they are not as high on the priority list. Nor does that mean I do not want the villainous speedsters I will make them all but I am hoping a few will be made by the 4 horsemen soon

Looks really good! I like it a lot and Max was a lot of fun back in the old Impulse days. That's really the only place I'm familiar with him from, actually. This captured the look I remember perfectly!

Well I am showing my age, and my comic collections age but I remember him from long before that. But the best stories of him come from Impulse. And I couldn't rightly have an impulse with out MAX! Also he is the first sidekick of Jay Garrick GA Flash but when he retired Johnny Quick took his place though he actually found Johnny not Jay.
