            Following a slight delay to avoid the Christmas holiday in 2014, Update 4 was released in January 2015.  Following the same formates as Update 2 and 3 (thank heaven they have not decided to change the base set format), this is the first release with birthstone cards.  The birthstone card is in the same format as the Memorbilia and Hair Locket or DNA card, with the Playmate's birthstone replacing the hair swatch.  Probably a bit more difficult to clone your own Playmate from a birthstone than it is from the kiss, hair, or memorabilia card, that market will determine whether this is more than just a curiosity.  Other than this addition, the release has formats and similar chase card groups to Update 2, and Update 3.  That is, two base cards per Playmate, pictorial and centerfold, one promo card for the next Update set, and two checklists.   Card quality and coallation within boxes is excellent, once again thirteen sets to a case of twelve boxes.   Chase card insertion varies, some boxes are better than others, but this is expected.   Fewer autograph cards with this release, as popular as they may be, getting the autographed cards back from Playmates was historically the cause of late releases, fewer autographs is probably keeping release dates much more on track. 
          Lower insertion ratio (that is rarer) chase cards have the usual purple foil, gold foil, and silver (or platinum if you will) variations for those who think it matters.  There is a stickered case topper,  which was a "platinum" memorabila card.  This likely varies from case to case.
          Scented memorabilia cards are supplied in plastic shrink wrap, probably best not to remove it unless you want to drop the cards value substantially.   Chase cards are not numbered so no idea of the number of chase cards made, but the insertion ratio should give some idea.
