No variations of Frostbite (v1) are known to exist.
Frostbite's body mold is entirely original and not made up from previous molds.
The mold was re-used in 1988 to create the figure Tiger Force Frostbite.
Starting with this series (Series Four, 1985), the head joint for G.I.Joe figures was changed into a head "ball." This ball allowed the head to look up and down, in addition to left and right.
