1371 Order Of The Pelt.
I’m not sure that everyone is going to get what’s happening here. I hate to spoil it, but I will say it is a reference to a very early part of the comic. I suspect some of you will be old enough, or well versed enough in old movies, to get what Reggie is doing without realizing what this is referencing. Then, of course, there are those of you who never read the comments and won’t see this, so you are on your own. XD
As far as I know there is no group that already has the name Order Of The Pelt. In fact, if I didn’t already want the spinoff of this comic to be called Alexandria Of The Library I would call it Order Of The Pelt. I looked around to see if the name was taken and got no hits, so I feel pretty google secure.
I left the house today expecting to go to Gamestop at some point and preorder some of the new Amiibo I was interested in. That didn’t happen. In fact I may not even get the ones that I already preordered months ago. Apparently there weren’t enough of those to go around, much like there weren’t enough of the ones for the new wave either. It’s most likely the first time I was turned away from trying to preorder something at a gamestop. As those of you who frequent that location will know they LOVE preorders. Like, more than a friend. So it was pretty weird having a an associate be like “You might be able to preorder online maybe. I can’t even verify you preorder for Ike…”
Basically Amiibos have reached critical mass as far as the battle between fans and scalpers are concerned. It’s significantly worse than it was with Skylanders, which is saying something. It’s so bad that the price has even ballooned out of control in Japan, which was, for a while, where you could get hard to find Amiibo and then pay the shipping. Which made a regular amiibo about $25 approximately. That number has doubled. In some cases tripled. So, basically any Amiibo that isn’t on a peg is off limits to me, and most other people. On the plus side this may make Nintendo less terrified of trying to sell some of the more “obscure” characters in America. In the future at least.
I managed to get a Kaos Trap for Skylanders Trap Team, which is the most expensive one after market. I got it for $6, so that worked out really well. I was going to get it on Amazon but I hesitated and it was up to $50 when last I looked there. It was on a peg at GS when I was Amiibo hunting. As well as the Light level expansion pack that you can’t get online for less than $60 when last I looked. That pretty much ends Skylanders for me. Unless the next game is really amazing I’m done. Which basically means if they bring back Stealth Elf I’m back in. XD
Now give him a kiss…
And out comes the Reggie we all know and love!
Or know anyway.
Also, can we all appreciate how cute John has been through this arc? Inside AND out folks.
no matter what side of the fence you sit at, no matter where you are from. Everyone can run Barter town in their life, at least once.
Order of the Pelt? As in Lucy and Linus Van?
(Oh, and Rerun…;)
Sorry, it was the first thing I thought of…
Me too, but you beat me to posting!
Isn’t there something about great minds running in parallel?
“Great minds in the same gutter?”
Yeah. I’ve heard that great minds taste best just before going bad.
I love the silent chat that they have
I can even watch it
“Maybe a little louder”
Humble pie leaves a bitter taste in your mouth.
Love the unspoken exchange between Reggie and John in panel 2 and 3. It’s like
Reggie; ‘Shall I rub it in?’
John; ‘Go for it dude. You earned it’
Reggie’s looking at him like “Should I do the thing?” and John’s just like “Hell yeah motherfucker!”
This was an awesome throwback.
Who runs bartertown!
Ok. That explains his poor english at the end.
And the crowd begins doing a loud chant:
“TWO furries enter! ONE furrie leaves!” “TWO furries enter! ONE furry leaves!”
The first thing came to mind was that one quote from the exorcist. Then I thought of other movie quotes and settled on Animal House’s “Thank you sir. May I have another?”
The Bartertown :p who doesn’t love to run Bartertown?
And now…..Dickish Reggie.
“Thank you for the lovely offer, but I don’t ant to be in your group. I justw anted to hear you say it.”
Lets face it folks — at 46, Tina Turner looked better than Reggie Boothe does at 21! (“Well he’s a guy, so…”) The effect is still there.
Would you like some coffee with that crow, Evrina? What can I pelt her with? (“If you have any poo…”)
Anyway: Order of the Pelt. I like that. I belong to a Science Fiction / Fantasy book club founded by a Canadian First Nations person (the other Perfesser Bear, by the way), a member of the Chilkoot Tribe. Prospective members have to select a Spirit Animal, and more than a few of the dozen or so members are known Furries. Like the Rottweiler and Blue Heeler couple.
The Queen Bee gets her stinger yanked and Reg has his revenge. There’s always a faster gun, sweets.
Now that was twisting the knife a bit Reggie…
look on the bright side, at least reggie isn’t making her say it over the PA system.
Darn straight. :D
Don’t gloat Reggie
Oh please, he earned that one.
He really did earn that. Especially since he was attacked pretty hard. Now I hope he doesn’t ruin it, and is now gracious in his victory. Take the high road reggie. It’ll pissed her off even mpre.ore if you do.
So Reggie and John are Master Blaster? That doesn’t seem right…
Even John had to admire how Reggie handled that.
Hey look, Reggie’s back.
So… was it one story for 2 people? or do we get the other guys story now!?
at which point we find out he’s a virgin hah
“Who runs Bartertown?”
So, should we just start calling Evrina Auntie Entity?
Is she gonna take us Beyond Thunderdome?
I got lucky and managed to score Charizard and Splatoon Amiibo 3 pack everything else i wanted was either sold out (Robina and lucina) or toys r us exclusive (greninja*) i would have picked up jiggly puff too but i only pre ordered them because i happened to be there i had already bought 2 others that day and
*i figure the pokemon ones will be useful longer then some of the other ones from smash
Ah congratulations Reggie you’ll be one of the bad asses yet at this rate. Just don’t implode yourself and you actually WILL go far.
I can’t wait for the dawning realization of what he has done. Lol. He just forced himself into a furry club.
Congratulation Reggie. You won the battle.
