Should I Spend Donuts On Plopper aka Spider Pig?

Spider-Pig, Spider-Pig,
Does whatever a Spider-Pig does.
Can he swing from a web?
No, he can’t, he’s a pig,
Look out, he is a Spider-Pig!

Hey Howdy Hey Crime Stopping Tappers!

It’s Superhero time in Springfield!  And nothing says Superhero like a Pig that eats a Radioactive Spider & gains super powers, right?  Now I know many of you are trying to decide if this web slinging pig is worth YOUR donuts, but don’t sweat it!  We’re here to help you decide what’s worth the donuts and what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add Plopper to YOUR Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this small but mighty Superhero to YOUR Springfield!

Building/Decoration: Crap Silo
Character:
Plopper aka Spider Pig
Donut Price:
100 Donuts
Dimensions:
4×4
Earns:
$150, 13xp/8hrs
Conform-O-Meter: 
Indolence +10

Pros
-Premium character earns 50% more cash and XP on all Jobs
-His 8hr task earns Superhero Event Currency
-One of the characters that can help attack Felons when they’re released from the prison
-Some hilarious outdoor animations…including his attack Felon task.
-It’s Spider Pig! He’s one of the most requested characters in TSTO

Cons
-He’s fairly small and can be hard to find in town
-One of his best animations will disappear when the event ends, attack Felon.

Final Thoughts
Premium
No question…buy, buy, buy!  If you’re only going to purchase 1 premium character for the event get Spider Pig!  The questline is great and so are his animations!  Stop thinking & get him 😉

Freemium
This is the one item from this event I highly recommend picking up!  He’s got a full set of tasks, will help you earn more Event currency & can also help clear the Felons.  He’s a great purchase, IMO.
I know some of you have expressed some concern about the price, 100 donuts.  However, if you think about it 100 donuts is not a bad price for a character/building combo.  Especially one that’s been so requested.  If you think about it Crazy Cat Lady (another highly requested character) is 140 donuts, Manjula 160 donuts…so really this isn’t a bad price for a premium character/building combo.  Actually with the exception of Jub-Jub and the Pet Shop (and his 1 task), Spider Pig is the cheapest Character/Building combo in the game (Akira is also at the same price point).  So my opinion…get him.

Of course in the end it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would/wouldn’t do…and I can tell you I purchased Spider Pig right away!  However, whatever you decide remember this is a limited-time item and will disappear when the event ends.  So make sure you make your final decision before March 31st or he’ll disappear from the store!

  1. This may sound immature but I got him during the second SH event
    And the moment I tapped that silo and it farted
    I knew i made the greatest purchase in tapped out history

  2. Hm… I just noticed the payout for the crap silo is not premium… that seems odd.
    But, Homer’s payout is premium when he does the task with Plopper! 🙂
    Are all premium/non-premium joint tasks like that?

  3. Still on the fence, wonder if it’s even still worth getting with the event being over.
