Battle Corps

An example of the G.I.Joe version of the 1994 "Classic" style Battle Corps cardback with promotional sticker.

The 1994 Battle Corps figures came on 2 different kinds of cardbacks. The first type carried over the layout from the 1993 Battle Corps figures, the second type introduced the new "stream lined" layout similar to the 1994 Star Brigade Cardbacks.

"Classic" G.I.Joe Batttle Corps cardback

These cardbacks were based on the standard 1993 Battle Corps layout. There were two different variations to the backs of the cards with some unique features.

  • The front includes an array of blue lasers, a styalized G.I. Joe logo and basic information about the figure, as well as a safety warning about small parts.
  • Some of the packages featured a green sticker for the Joe Colton mail away figure. This sticker has been replaced by a security feature on the template (optional).
  • The first back variation has 7 figures on the checklist, "special forces" ad box in green, and a Battle Corps vehicle ad box in green along with a full sized filecard.
  • The second back variation has 13 figures on the checklist and the "special forces" ad box in yellow. This variation ommits the Battle Corps vehicle box.
  • Note that the back templates for both the 7 and 13 back cards are same for Joe and Cobra the same with seperate layers to change the boarder color from blue to red. This alows one templet to be used for either Joes or Cobra customs.
