Operation Cold Slither: G.I. JOE Trivia!

Prepare Your Cobra Forces For The Coming Winter!

Happy Labor Day, everyone! It's going to start getting cold in a couple of months; is your Cobra army ready? If not, I have two carded Snow Serpent figures up for grabs, a little something for the hard-working collector on this holiday. The cards aren't flawlessly mint, but they're sealed and perfect for openers, especially army builders. I'll take all the correct answers from the trivia question below, put their names in a bowl, and pick one winner randomly to receive both Snow Serpent figures. This is open to anyone in the U.S. or Canada, and the shipping is on me.

Your Mission

The building pictured here is located in the hometown of one of the more popular G.I. JOE characters from the early 1980s. Conflicting sources have given a few different cities of origin for this particular character, but I'm looking for the first one ever revealed. HINT: Of the various action figure releases, only one file card gave this city as his birthplace.
Name that city!

In order to enter the contest, just send the following to coldslither@compulsivecollector.com:
  1. The city and state where the pictured building is located
  2. The character's code name
  3. The character's file name (real name)
  4. Your first name, city, and state (or province)
If you prefer to have your screen name from a web site posted when I announce the winner, just be sure to include that with your e-mail.

And the prize:
G.I. JOE Snow Serpent figures

Entries must be received by 11:59 PM on Sunday, September 14, 2008. I'll announce the winner here on the Compulsive Collector Blog Monday, September 15.

Good luck!
