Should I Spend Donuts On Gil’s Rockstar Maggie Deal?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The nerds have invaded Springfield!  Ok just one nerd, and he’s not all that bad.  And only in Springfield can Professor Frink, with the help of Homer, open up a black hole that transports doppelgangers, robots and Stephen Hawking (!) to our pocket sized Springfields!  So time to crack open those hologram wallets, because there’s a store full of multiverse theme premium items to spend our donuts on!

And it never helps the donut matter when Ol’ Gil arrives in town!  Especially when he’s peddling something as awesome as Rockstar Maggie!  But with that limited-time label it can be tempting to buy everything that looks as awesome as this because it’ll be gone soon.  But don’t sweat it!  That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth those donuts and what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add the Rockstar Maggie to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this pacifier sucking Rockstar to your Springfield…

unlock_rockstarmaggieSpringfield_Hyperstadium

Building/Decoration: Hyperstadium
Character: Rockstar Maggie (FULL Character, NOT a Skin for Maggie)
Donut Price: 160 Donuts
Earns: $135, 15xp/4hrs
Size: 12×12
Conform-O-Meter: Obedience +20

Leaves stores August 30th

Pros:
-Earns an additional 396ico_cur_scifi2016_darkmatter_lg via the questline (so yes, comes with a questline)
-After the questline Rockstar Maggie is one of the few characters to have a task at the PolyVac, to earn more ico_cur_scifi2016_darkmatter_lg (66/4hrs)
-Rockstar Maggie will have a task at Open Air Stage (12hrs, costs $150. Earns $800,200xp)
-Hyperstadium as awesome animation, and Rockstar Maggie will use it
-FULL Character, NOT a Skin for Baby Maggie.

Cons:
-Large.  At 12×12, it’s a fairly large footprint.
-Not voiced.  Rockstar Maggie isn’t voiced at all…not even a pacifier sucking sound
-Have to complete the 6 part questline (which relies heavily on Homer) in order to start earning more ico_cur_scifi2016_darkmatter_lg at the PolyVac
-Rockstar Maggie’s task at the Hyperstadium isn’t actually in or on it.  She performs, visually, outside of it on the ground of Springfield
-High price for a character/building combo.

Final Thought:
Premium:
Honestly, I love this one.  I’m stoked it’s in the game and even more thrilled she’s a FULL character and not just a skin for Maggie.  If you have the donuts and you’re a regular premium player, pick this one up.  You’ll be kicking yourself if you don’t.

Freemium:
This one is a freemium tossup in my opinion.  It’s pretty high priced for a character/building combo, I must say.  And there’s still a lot of awesome premium stuff to come with this event.  So, while this is an awesome combo…as a freemium player I would sit down and decide how many donuts I currently have and if it’s worth spending the 160 on this combo.

Of course in the end it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would or wouldn’t do.  And I can tell you I already own it.  I got it as soon as Gil arrived in my town…just too good for me to pass up.  Of course whatever you decide just remember this is limited time and will be leaving our games very soon (August 30th).  So if you’re thinking about grabbing it, do it very soon before it’s gone for good!

Here’s a look at Rockstar Maggie’s Permanent tasks (again…FULL Character, NOT a Skin for Maggie..):

  1. Same mope here. I didn’t watch the date but thought there were a few more days left to decide. I finally decided on this over Ladybot but the Gill deal is gone. I wish the timer had been accurate, but I guess I need to read dates. 😫

  2. The in game Gil deal said it had a few more days left and now it’s gone! I’m so annoyed that I didn’t get a chance to buy it 😦

  3. Well this post states she would leave August 30th, but as of yesterday the in-game Gil Deal said it was available for three to four more days. I was going to wait to see how Mooch Bart was before deciding on Rockstar Maggie.

  7. What I’d like to know is whether Future Bart will become available? I saw Future Lisa is in the second (2) act, but what about Bart? Have you guys and gals any ideas?

  8. This is one of my favorite premium things ever. The animation when RM is at the Hyperstadium is spectacular. The price is right in line with most premium building/character combos. The questline helps me get bonuts, and it ends with frosty chocolate milkshakes.

    • Me too! I normally couldn’t be bothered with Gil deals, but this was pretty awesome, even if the stadium is a little too tall for my liking. Considering that even P-Rex cost 175 donuts for a building/character combo (I don’t regret getting him though), this is quite a steal. Only the Robo Burns/Smithers combo and Plopper are better deals IMO.

    I guess I’m in minority on this as this deal doesn’t attract me much. (I guess maybe if it where way cheaper then it might be tempting.) I think I like Maggie best as a baby. But mostly I am not a fan of ginormous buildings and this one I find to be kind of ugly.

  11. Meh… surprised so many people are psyched about this expensive combo. Each to their own but setting the character to one side, all of the futuristic architecture looks out of place when compared to the rest of the buildings; furthermore, why are the designers making larger and larger buildings – my STO OCD is getting upset by the discrepancies in scale!

    This is one gig I won’t be attending.

    • “all of the futuristic architecture looks out of place when compared to the rest of the buildings”

      sometimes the stuff we get from events integrates well into our existing towns, and other times it makes more sense to place it all together into a new district. the latter certainly applies in this case, and i’ve gone ahead and cleared a portion of my SH area to make room for the robots and their springfield of tomorrowland. so, instead of having to complain about the futuristic architecture and its size, i can actually enjoy all the cool new content, and embrace the challenge of finding a way to have it make sense in my town.

  12. I don’t know what to do!! (freemium player) Save my 250 bonuts for Frink’s rebate or buying Maggie that is a character no longer available?!?! I would love have all three future Simpson together, but in the same time I can’t resist to sale (even in real life >:D) I always wait to buy permanent premium character and for Frink this would be his chance… But losing Maggie…(I don’t really like the stadium btw), don’t KNOW ç__ç

  16. I normally don’t spend donuts on regular-priced items, but Rockstar Maggie is too badass to pass up. As the most quiet Simpson in the family, she turned out to be world-class and the loudest one.

  19. Bought her. Totally worth it. Of all the future Simpsons, Maggie is my favorite. Odd, I know, because she never talks, but that’s part of what I like. She is the voiceless singing sensation. She sings so well that Lovejoy almost doesn’t mind what a little hell raiser she is. It’s a talent that no one could predict from her current character, unlike the talents we see Bart and Lisa having in the future. So yeah, I like future Maggie, I had to shell out for her.
    Also spent about 70 precious sprinklies on the flowering holo-hedges as proper fencing for the hyperstadium. Tried the free hedges at first, but they were not interesting enough. Thought about the bundle of stuff for the added trees, but I couldn’t really have made fencing with just a few hedges and shrubs. So I spent the same amount on just flower hedges and I’ll have to make do with the craftable holo-trees.
    (Side note, I would love a solid version of those craftable trees. Always nice to have more tree options. Would likewise love to have solid flowering hedges, because they’re quite nice.)
    I’m now down to less than 200 donuts, so I’ll have to slow down the spending in this event. I want to have enough for some Halloween goodies.

  20. I bought the combo on my A game (freemium for about 18 months now) today & am glad I did! My B game (totally freemium) was short two donuts.

    Here’s the point of my post… I had lots of debris stored so decided to lay them out 12 @ a time & have Lisa cleanup in the hope of donuts. I got disheartened after 144 cleanups with only 2 donuts provided.

    I’m no statistician but the first donut came during the 60 debris tally. The second came @ 108 mark. Then nothing to 144 (which is when I gave up in disgust!) My B game is out of hard earned donuts; But I’m glad I managed to get the item combo on both my accounts!
