Iowa G.I. Joe Collectors Meet-Up
Join Us at Jay's Sunday, November 13, 2011
Loved G.I. Joes as a kid? Miss the days of battling Cobra, a ruthless terrorist organization trying to rule the world? Looking to score some missing pieces to your current Joe Collection? Hoping to meet-up with some friends who share your passion?
Jay's CD & Hobby is hosting the first All Iowa G.I. Joe Collectors Meet-up this November 13th, 2011. Catch some nostalgia, maybe a missing piece or two & meet fellow collectors from across the state. But most importantly, you'll have to chance to reconnect with action figure you loved as a kid!
There's a little bit for everyone. Check out all that's going on Sunday!
There will be two different categories: 3 & 3/4 figures and 3 &3/4 Vehicle/Playset. Each must use at least 50% existing Joe parts. Entries will be limited to 2 customs per person. Entries must be submitted prior to 12:00 pm on the day of the meet-up. The winner will be announced at 4pm that day by our special guest judge. Must be present to win.
Prizes will be awarded to 1st place in both categories.
