1352 A Bridge Too Fur.

If this is the text you see when the comic goes up I fell asleep trying to make a page for next week. My face is probably pressed into the keyboard.

Ah, I did nod off, but came to before I had to post. It was in a pile of laundry though and not on my keyboard.

Today I got blood drawn at the doctor’s. I don’t know what they want it for, but probably summoning demons. I’ve suspected it for a while. Anyway, after that I picked up my Sheik preorder. They also had some blind bag Walking Dead McFarland single packs from his terrible building set line. I wanted to try and get Daryl for the Teen, but only bought one pack. Damned if it wasn’t him. I have no idea what the odds against were, but she got her tiny Daryl. I don’t know if the whole series is crappy, but the Daryl figure wouldn’t stay together, so I glued it in place. I was pretty disappointed in the quality of the item as far as construction was concerned, but the actual sculpt was very good. Even at the itty bitty scale they use it was a good likeness of Norman Reedus.

Later on I found Metalbeard on clearance for $11. I really wanted him and that was a price you can’t beat. He’s regularly $30, and they are sure to discontinue the movie line soon. It’s also probably as close to a Nick Offerman figure as we’re likely to get so bonus there. Right now the only main cast figures I need are Bad Cop, so maybe they’ll clear out one of his sets at some point. I found Lord Business’s Lair on clearance for $20 a while back, which is down from $70 or something. So I have his parents…

If you saw my posts about the Nami figures on twitter here’s a funny story that will sound familiar. The one from Unlimited Cruise usually comes in an orange and blue color, but there’s a white variant. The specials are blind boxed so even the seller didn’t know what he was selling. I actually wanted the standard version, but the variant came in the mail. Which is fine, it was $2 so it was a total steal. The special usually sells for $30. It’s a credit to the seller that he didn’t try to switch it out because he shipped the whole set I got sans boxes to save on shipping. So he saw what got away from him before he shipped. This is the second time I’ve gotten the rare while trying to buy the regular version of something. If that all sounds like sort of a weird complaint it sort of is, but a very small one. In both cases the outfit was adorable in both colors. They just weren’t what I expected.

I also tried to use another Nintendo zone location that wouldn’t work. I don’t know what the deal is with them. I got street passes, but the zone gift for Animal Crossing still won’t work. It’s a puzzlement.
