Sunbow's Iceberg wore his 1986 outfit, but his vest was white instead of light blue, and he had a white pistol in a green holster rather than vice-versa. Iceberg dated the character Mahiya Windigos, and his file name and birthplace were mentioned in the episode Iceberg Goes South. In a few stray camera shots, Iceberg was erroneously colored as a Caucasian.

Iceberg hates hot weather. In Brownsville in the summer, you can spit on the sidewalk and watch it sizzle. While other kids saved up for bicycles, Iceberg saved up for an air conditioner. When he was old enough to enlist, he signed up and asked for duty in Alaska. He had found his element. Qualified expert: M-16A2, M-79, M-60, and M-1911A1.
"We have plenty of cold weather specialists that can stand the cold well enough but very few that like it. Iceberg's just not happy until the mercury dips below zero. This is not to say he's unaware of the dangers of cold weather or that he is impervious to the lethal effects of hypothermia. Rather, his love for ultra-cold climates has forced him to learn every aspect of arctic survival."

ICEBERG is one of the best cold weather specialists on the planet. Not just because he has the knowledge and ability to endure freezing temperatures, but because he actually ENJOYS the bitter cold and survives it with a smile even in the chill of battle. He loves to thrash Cobra (and the mountain slopes) on his jet-powered snowboard and he knows everything about arctic survival, including fortifying his own igloo by hacking and shaping huge blocks of ice with his razor-edged machete.
Motto: "Just give me an M-16 and a sharp icicle and I'll fight 'till I freeze!"
Toy Notes: Item #6863. Iceberg must go through a lot of machetes if he's using them on ice.

Iceberg grew up in hot weather, and he hated it. As soon as he was old enough to enlist, he signed up for duty in Alaska. The cold is his element - he's not happy until the mercury drops well below zero. Iceberg possesses both the knowledge and ability to endure freezing temperatures. This is not to say he's impervious to lethal effects of hypothermia, rather a passion for the survival within the element. Give him an M-16 rifle and an icicle and you'll have an igloo full of COBRA prisoners within the hour. He repects the cold, and uses it to his advantage. When the G.I. Joe program re-organized, Iceberg returned as a member of the Arctic Unit. He's an instructor that loves his job. He's always cool - in more ways than one.
From General Hawk's Files: "If I have a mission that requires cold weather involvement, odds are Iceberg will volunteer for it. This guy loves the cold, and everything about it. His knowledge and survival skills give him the advantage. He's more happy to climb a mountain, build his own igloo, and fish for his dinner. It's like summer camp in the winter for him. He knows what it takes, and always gets results."
Motto: "I like my food like my enemies - Frozen!"
Toy Notes: Carded in a Toys 'R Us-exclusive Arctic Mission Team three-pack with Blizzard and Snow Job. Item #28014.
