No variations of Payload (v1) are known to exist.
Payload's body is completely original - all new body parts.
Payload's entire body and mold were re-used for the 1989 Payload (v2).
The same mold was going to be used for Payload (v3). In fact, the photographs of the figure on the filecard for the 1993 Payload show the same mold. However, the photograph is painted that way. The original mold for Payload was lost somewhere between 1989 and 1993, so the Eco-Warriors Barbecue (v3) mold was used for all further versions of Payload.
