View Full Version : Payload v4 - an issue of year

So, I'm looking for some general consensus on Payload v4 (

The archives list him as 1993, and showing up on 1993 and later, the verticle logo 94 cards.

Here's the catch - in 13 years, I have never once found a Payload v4 on a pink 1993 Star Brigade card. Ever.

Lots of 1994 cards, never a 1993.

So I'm turing this one over to the boards to decide. Is he a 93 or a 94 figure?

Well, a quick look at ebay showed no blue Payloads on 93 cards.

I brought this up a few years ago that I've never seen a blue payload with the red accessories.

I agree that it is from early 1994. But I also think that in the archive the pink accessories should be remove from the listing.

I am in agreement. I think that only the green Payload came with Pink accessories, and the blue/black and white/red Payload versions were the only ones that came with the gray accessories.

But it also doesn't look like we're getting very many votes. Oh well.

I'm saying 1994. The green-and-black Payload and the rather scarcer white-suited Payload are both from 1993. The blue-and-black is the recoloration from 1994. Star Brigade wasn't too well organized in some respects in this area. Ozone had the same problem. But like you, I've never seen a blue-and-black Payload on the 1993 style card.

I've been trying to figure out the Payload mess for 7 years. In that time, I have only seen the green and black figure on the pink 1993 card. By the same token, I have only seen the blue and black figure and the white suited figure on the black 1994 card. So, I think that the green figure should be the '93 while the white and blue figures are both only '94's. The black and blue figure also only had the grey accessories from '94 and was not released with the pink '93 accessories.

I guess thats as bad as the bazooka launcher variant that no one can seem to place also. Could be a simple mistake or a one off item out there somewhere.
