As a great compliment to the ongoing G.I. Joe Convention, several regional shows have cropped up, and one of the best has been Assembly Required in Des Moines, Iowa.

Don’t make the same mistake I have, circle the date on your calendar, and keep watching the Codename: Iowa Facebook Page for updates!
