YoJoe ID: 118-HAF-1993-GRISTLE-01

Series: Twelve (1993)

Gristle was released carded as part of the twelfth series (1993). The 1993 Battle Corps figures were numbered 1 through 36 - Gristle was number 32.

Gristle was intended to be part of the 1993 assortment of D.E.F. (Drug Elimination Force) subset. However, Hasbro decided not to release any D.E.F. toys in 1993 and instead repackaged them as Battle Corps toys.

He was discontinued domestically in 1994.
