Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
September (at least here in the US) means the weather gets crisper, the days start to get shorter, the leaves start to change and it’s time for the season premiere of The Simpsons! To celebrate the 27th Season (as they’ve done for season premieres in the past), TSTO launched an all new episode tie-in! And with this little weekend event arrives a couple a new episode inspired premium decoration…the Statue of Burns! Now I know you may be trying to decide if this is worth YOUR donuts, but don’t sweat it! We’re here to tell you what’s worth the donuts and what you might want to hold off on.
Wondering if you should add the Statue of Burns to YOUR Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this solid gold pigeon landing spot to YOUR Springfield!
-Has animation when tapped (a Pigeon comes out and poops on it)
-Comes with a questline
-Something to remember the Season 27 premiere episode by
-Does not offer a bonus %
-The real estate bonus offered is nice, but not worth it (you’re better off leveling up a building in SH and saving the 50 donuts)
Premium or Freemium Take:
Honestly, don’t waste your donuts on this one. The fact that it does not offer a bonus % really annoys me. For 50 donuts you should at least get a 2-2.5% bonus with this item. Instead they’re offering you an 800k real estate boost, which honestly just isn’t worth the 50 donuts in my opinion.
So unless you really love this statue…pass.
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 fully passing on this one…it just doesn’t make sense for me. However, whatever you decide just remember that this statue will be leaving our stores soon, so if you’re thinking about it getting it make sure you make your final decisions before September 29th or you’ll miss your chance.
Here’s a look at the very short questline that comes with the statue….(Dialogue included):
Everyone, Look at Me Pt. 1
Mr. Burns: Aah, it’s finally completed. A monolith to my magnificence, for all of Springfield to idolize. All employees, come see how good I look in gold!
Tap Statue of Mr. Burns
Everyone, Look at Me Pt. 2
Mr. Burns: Hmm, wretched fowls and their lack of regard to excrement placement. Smithers! I demand that you wipe these useless pigeons off the face of the earth by supper time.
Smithers: Ah, sir, I’m not sure that’s actually possible.
Mr. Burns: Well, quit dilly-dallying and find a solution. An entire species of birds isn’t going to eradicate itself.

Smithers: It’s done, sir. The pigeons are all…uh..gone.
Mr. Burns: Well done, Smithers. These crows are starting to become a nuisance around the plant, however. Perhaps after dinner you can work your magic like you did on those blasted pigeons.
Smithers: Yes, sir…
