It’s almost time for a whole new generation of kids to get involved in the long-running battle between G.I. Joe and Cobra.

On Oct. 22, Paramount Pictures’ Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins is set to hit theaters but the action will hit toy departments by the end of summer. Ahead of this Friday’s Hasbro Pulse Fan Fest event, Hasbro has unleashed a preview of what to expect from its extensive new G.I. Joe collection, starting with the first kid-focused G.I. Joe toy line since G.I. Joe: Retaliation (2013) was in theaters.

The first images were released via Yahoo! Entertainment and feature an assortment of 6-inch action figures ($9.99 each), vehicles, roleplay items, and the 12-inch Ninja Strike Snake Eyes figure ($19.99).

The initial wave of 6-inch Snake Eyes action figures includes the titular ninja — in both standard black and Ninja Tech editions — alongside Storm Shadow, The Baroness,  Night Creeper, Scarlett and Red Ninja. Kids can also collect Snake Eyes’ Stealth Cycle vehicle and roleplay items, including the Special Missions Mask and the Ninja Strike Morning Light sword.

In recent years, Hasbro’s G.I. Joe brand has been a largely collector-focused endeavor, particularly with last year’s launch of the 6-inch scale G.I. Joe: Classified Series and the 3.75-inch G.I. Joe Retro Collection.

Families can look for a ton of new G.I. Joe products for kids of all ages to become available at most major retailers throughout the coming year.
