Jessica very much wants all the hearsay about furries to be true. Unfortunately for her they are basically the same as any other group of people. The dispersion of people you can’t stand, aren’t attracted to, and aren’t attracted to you is the same as in the general public. They are not the sensational story the media wants you to think they are so you’ll watch their cloying puff piece before dinner. Still, it’s nice to have dreams. I think Jess is way more free wheeling than any of the members of the Order Of The Pelt. That said, she might be like flicking a lit match into a puddle of gasoline.
Those of you who follow my Amiibo hunting exploits will be happy to know that I finally got Lucina for regular price. It’s an import, so I have to wait weeks for it to get here, but it is secured. At some point I will be able to play Codename Steam with a full Fire Emblem team. I haven’t looked up what she can do in game, but if she’s half as awesome as Robin it will be amazing. He has the best power of all with his fire spell. I like to team him up with the Tin Man so he can take out waves of enemies from up high, then get refilled to do it some more. He clears out annoying little enemies really well so that your other team members can take on the big ones without having to watch their backs all the time.
I’ve pretty much secured all the current amiibo except for King Dedede, Meta knight, and Rosalina. With the others I have a way to get them that is good for the forseeable future, and will retain a normal price. I can pick them up whenever the budget allows. Hopefully those three will get restocks and I won’t have to scramble to try and pick them up at random. I left the Kirby guys for last because I don’t really like them anyway, but if I can get them for shelf price I’ll complete the Kirby set. Rosalina is still a Target exclusive but they haven’t restocked or given any word about giving up the exclusivity. I loved her in Mario Galaxy so I’d like to have her Amiibo if it’s possible.
I could have gotten the chibi robo one without his new game but I don’t really know what the deal is with it. I may just pass that one over. If I get really desperate for some reason it looks like the bundle pack will be readily available for quite some time. Has anyone played that? Is it cool? Is there any reason to get it apart from possibly wanting the amiibo?
I totally ignored the yarn Yoshi ones. I don’t really like the Yoshi games, so they’d just be shelf sitters and I have a Smash Yoshi for representation. Kind of like the pixel Mario ones. I’m not that concerned about unlocking the weird mushroom in Mario Maker. If I can get the blue pants version someplace that’s fine. If not, I’m not going to worry about it. I’ve been able to experience the item through other people’s levels.
So far the Animal Crossing Amiibo have been easy to get. The cards I’ve managed to buy off other people who got doubles, so there hasn’t been a lot of wasted cash on my end. People are also being cool about it. No weird pricing. I may forgo packs from this point on and just trade/buy singles until I have a set. I have a little less than half, but have 16 doubles. If I could trade those I’d be well on my way to completing the set.
Here’s my list of duplicates:
I don’t have a list of who I need yet. If you see one you need let me know. We can do a trade. If you just want to buy them it’s a dollar for the regulars and 2 for the shiny ones.
I’m going to try and get some drawings on Ebay in December. If I can’t slide them in while keeping up with the comic I’m just going to forget it though. I could use the surplus but not at the expense of the comic, obviously. I’ve been doing relatively well though and am starting to catch up a bit finally. I think the cold weather has helped. I’m still not exactly sure about what I’m going to do about Xmas, since being at grandma’s house was torture at thanksgiving, but maybe I’ll feel better by then.
As long as I’m thinking about it, Patreon supporters, please check your pledge accounts to make sure they’ll process at the end of the month. I should have the next part of Julius and the Riddle Of Stone up tomorrow. With an y luck I’ll finish the avatar requests for November as well. If not I’ll get them done as soon as I can. Thanks, as always, for going that extra step for me. You’re a big part of why the comic is still running.
