The relaunch of Hasbro‘s iconic G.I. Joe franchise continues.

On the latest edition of Hasbro Pulse’s Fan First Friday, the company revealed a new addition to its rapidly expanding G.I. Joe Classified Series of 6-inch scale action figures: Snake Supreme Cobra Commander. The new version of the Cobra leader is the third variant of the character in the new collection following the previously revealed standard and Regal editions.

Snake Supreme Cobra Commander features a soft goods cape and premium accessories and comes packed in a box featuring custom artwork by Sana Takeda. The figure will be sold exclusively through Hasbro Pulse, the company’s direct-to-consumer platform.

The second reveal is the long-rumored G.I. Joe Retro Collection. Similar to what Hasbro has done with Star Wars The Vintage Collection, this new series includes 3.75-inch scale super-articulated action figures and vehicles that come in vintage-inspired packaging with retro Hasbro branding.

The first wave includes three figures — Snake Eyes, Storm Shadow, and the Baroness — and two vehicles. The Cobra H.I.S.S. comes with a Driver while the G.I. Joe A.W.E. Striker includes a Crankcase action figure.

The G.I. Joe Retro Collection is available this October, exclusively at Walmart.
