Cobra Commander, leader of the organization known as Cobra, recently visited Springfield to receive the key to the city from Mayor J. Michael Houston.
“Springfielders near and far, I accept your Mayor’s generous gift. And let it be known that I too bring a gift for every man, woman and child of this city that is so near and dear to my heart; an invitation to join with me,” Cobra Commander said during the press conference. “Join Cobra!”
The Commander’s visit is but a forerunner for more things Cobra coming next month. Prairie Capital Convention Center will host the official G.I. Joe Collectors’ Convention — G.I. JoeCon — April 9-12.
The cost is $20 for adults and $10 for children (ages 4 and under are free). More information, including weekend registration packages for G.I. JoeCon 2015, can be found here.
