SPEARHEAD was the youngest and the most successful insurance salesman in the Pacific Northwest. It was said that he could sell a term policy to a dead cow. Everybody liked him, trusted him, and bought more insurance from him than they could afford. Spearhead denies that guilt was a factor in his decision to join the army - he simply felt that somebody had to do it. When Night Force conducts an attack against a Cobra base, Spearhead and Max always lead the unit to give it an added punch through the enemy's defense lines!
"When some guys try to lead a combat assault they jump up and holler, 'Follow me!' and charge full tilt at a bunker. Halfway there, they look back, and no one's behind them! Of course not - the guy was a jerk. Spearhead could jump face first into a vat of rabid hyenas and fifteen guys would follow him. No hesitation. They'd jump SMILING. And of course, Spearhead's mad cat, Max, would always be a source of inspiration."
No variations of Spearhead and Max (v2) are known to exist.
Night Force Spearhead's entire body was originally used to create the original Spearhead.
In India in 1995, Night Force Spearhead & Max was released in slightly different colors and with differently colored accessories. While this figure has various color and waist part variations, one stands out above the rest: this variation features a very different color layout of black, brown, and gold. This variation was only found randomly packed with vehicles.
