Should I Spend Donuts on the Shiva Statue?

Level 39 is here (finally) and with it comes another premium decoration to add to YOUR Springfield, Shiva Statue!    Basically the same thing as the Ice God at Christmas…only this one won’t melt!  I’m sure you’re asking ‘Should I Spend Donuts on This?’ Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this decoration to YOUR Springfield!

Decoration: Shiva Statue
Donut Price: 40 donuts
Dimensions: 2×2 (also pretty tall, so it can be seen fairly easy)
Bonus %: 2% on all cash and XP
Conform-O-Meter: Vanity +400
Placement: Grass, Pavement, Beach, Boardwalk

Pros:
-New decoration for Springfield
-Base of it is small, yet it’s fairly tall so it won’t take up much land but can still be seen.
-Adds a 2% bonus to all cash and XP
-Can be placed anywhere (well except the road…of course!)
-Reasonably priced, as far as premium items go

Cons:
-Just a decoration.  No animation or quest associated with it
-Does not unlock any additional character tasks
-A bit random in appearance and may be difficult to fit with the “flow” of your Sprignfield.
-Only impacts vanity, one of the easiest areas to max out on your Conform-O-Meter

Final Thought:
Personally,  I plan on purchasing it…but I’m a completest.  I can’t help it! However, UNLESS you are a completest or you think you have the PERFECT spot for it I’d pass on this one.  Be cons on this statue far out weigh the pros.  Save those donuts for something far more useful to you!  (something like the Police Car that costs the same, awards a 2% bonus AND impacts your Obedience Rating…a bit harder to max out) But in the end it’s your call.  What you buy and what you don’t buy is your own personal choice we can only guide you on the facts and let you know what we did and what we think.
