Updated with Audio from the Film Set Below
Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Everyone’s favorite down on his luck salesman is back in Springfield! Yes, that’s right Old Gil has returned to our towns and this time he’s got a heck of an “opportunity” for you!
Yes, during these final days of the Superhero Sequel Event Gil is rolling out the Radioactive Man movie set…you know the one where Radioactive Man gets swept up in a wave of acid. Because hey…everyone else has gotten Super, why not Wolfcastle too?
This deal hit our games overnight, sorry I was busy snoozing…so let’s take a look at what happened while I was sleeping…
So when you first logged into your pocket sized Springfields this morning you may have noticed Gil waving his arms around (as if he was trying to land an airplane…) trying to get your attention. (please I beg ya, you gotta help me get this plane down) ..kinda like this:
Either he’s trying to get your attention, or he just scored the winning goal the World Cup
Anyway….when you finally decide to tap on Old Gil he’ll give you his latest pitch for something you really don’t need…like those people at the electronic stores that try to sell you a $10 warranty on a $15 clock radio…
So now that I’ve gone completely off the rails…back to what Gil’s latest sales pitch…
Gil: Hey you, do you remember the epic acid scene from the Radioactive Man movie, starring Rainer Wolfcastle? C’mon, you know the one…Fallout Boy’s missing and Radioactive Man gets swept up in a wave of acid? Good Ol’ Gil’s got some good ol’ news for you! The production company is going to re-shoot the scene from the director’s cut-a-rooni! And for a very small cost, you’ll get to direct the scene yourself! I’m sure Fallout Boy will show up this time…bad things never happen twice in Springfield…except for Ol’ Gil. Even if they do, you’ll get to see Rainier Wolfcastle suffer from acid injuries again and again! Don’t worry about him, he’s got a super-duper health insurance plan. And me…I rely on two boxes of Band-Aids and a carton of cough syrup.
If you refuse…
Gil: Well, suit yourself. We’re not all cut out to be film directors.
If you accept….
Gil: hot diggety-dog-diggety-doo! You’re not gonna regret it. I’ll even throw in some “acid resistant” goggles….
And here’s everyone’s favorite…the Should I Buy portion of this post….
Building: Radioactive Man Movie Set
Donut Price: 150 Donuts
Conform-O-Meter: Vanity +100
Earns: Earns $300, 30xp/12hrs
Leaves Stores on July 26th….
-Comes with a questline, 1 part
-Animated always, acid bubbles..
-Wolfcastle has a permanent 30 minute (after questline is complete, prior to that it’s 6s) task there with a visual animation (acid spills out on him)
-When task is complete the audio has Wolfcastles famous “my eyes” line (audio is below)
-Massive in size, takes up a ton of room in Springfield
-Animation with Wolfcastle isn’t constant, really only happens when you finish the task
-Over priced for what it is/does
It’s ok but it’s not great. Like most Gil deals it is over priced. And honestly, I’m not that impressed with the animation. It’s ok but it’s nothing to write home about. It’s one of those premium splurges…if you like it and want it grab it. Otherwise I’d save my money.
Don’t waste your donuts on this one. It’s absurdly priced for what it is/does. Save your donuts, save your time…save your sanity. Avoid this one.
Of course in the end we can only tell you what we would or wouldn’t do, the final decision is up to you. But I can tell you this is not in my Springfield, nor will it be in the near future. Whatever you decide, just make sure you make your final decision before it leaves our stores on July 26th….
Here’s a look at the short questline that comes with it….
Acid Here Waiting for You
Wolfcastle: Ok, so the production company vants to re-shoot the acid scene. This time, you von’t disappear, vill you?
Milhouse: Um… uh… no, you can count on me, I think…
Wolfcastle: My perfect butt vas so burned they had to use a stunt butt stand-in to finish the scene. It burns me more knowing it’s not my butt on the big screen.
Milhouse: I completely understand… although not really.
Make Rainer Wolfcastle Re-Shoot the Acid Scene- 6s, Earns $50, 2xp
Make Milhouse Disappear Again- 8hrs, Earns $275, 70xp
Wolfcastle: Only Fallout Boy can save me now… … Oh, Mist, not again!
On job complete
Wolfcastle: Argh, Milhouse… you messed up again!
Milhouse: It’s too much pressure! I’m not a real hero, I’m just a kid.
Wolfcastle: Don’t beat yourself up. Let villains do that for you.
And here are a couple of screen grabs to kind of show you the animation…
And that’s it my friends, the full rundown, and Should You Buy, for the Radioactive Man Movie Set…
