Hey Howdy Hey Crime Stopping Tappers!
It’s Superhero time in Springfield! And all Superheroes need a Super Villain to defend the city against! Nothing says Super Villain quite like a dinosaur like character that squirts gasoline all over town with his gas pump hands, right? Now I know many of you are trying to decide if this gas slinging dino 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 P-Rex to YOUR Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this Super Villian to YOUR Springfield!
Building/Decoration: Springfield Tar Pits
Character: Petroleus Rex (P-Rex)
Donut Price: 175 Donuts
Earns: $150, 13xp/8hrs
Conform-O-Meter: Consumerism +10
-Premium character earns 50% more cash and XP on all Jobs
-His 8hr task earns Superhero Event Currency
-Some hilarious outdoor animations…including his Terrorize Springfield task
-Will not help attack Felons, only his 8hr task will help generate more Event currency (he’s a bad guy, remember?)
-The Tar Pits is HUGE
This isn’t a bad buy, but it is on the pricey end of things. He is voiced, will help earn game currency & comes with a questline…but he’s still an obscure Simpsons’ character. As a premium leaning, this is one I’m leaning towards passing on. I just don’t think the price warrants the character…even if he does have 1 event currency task. Right now I’m 80-20 in the passing on category.
Honestly, save your donuts on this one. He’s way over priced for who he is/what he does (if you think about it Manjula (WAY more recognizable) is only 160 donuts.). I just don’t think his tasks and the building are worth the 175 donuts. Save your donuts for later in the event…trust me you’ll be glad you did!
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’m leaning heavily on passing on PRex. 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 24th or he’ll disappear from the store!
