Should I Spend Donuts On THOH Flashback Bundle #4 or Count Burns?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s Halloween in our pocket-size Springfields!  Yes that magical time of the year when our towns turn dark, our water becomes mucky, there are monsters everywhere to battle and (as with all events) there are LOADS of items from Halloweens past to spend those sprinkles on!

Of course 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 Halloween Flashback Bundle 4 or Count Burns to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding these throwbacks to your Springfield…

Character/Skin: Count Burns
Item: Count Burns’ Coffin
Cost: 120 donuts (I can’t confirm this, unfortunately my low level game doesn’t have the offer, so I’m going off the last donut price)
Previous Should I Buy Post: Count Burns
My Opinion On It Now: While Count Burns does earn Event Currency at the MAG building, this combo just isn’t worth it to me.  120 donuts for a premium skin (not character, skin for Mr. Burns) just isn’t worth the purchase.  I’d pass on this one.


Leaves Stores November 6th

Items: Flashback Bundle 4
Contains: Talking Krusty Doll, Burns Monster & Devil Flanders
Donut Cost: 100 Donuts.
What Do They Do: Devil Flanders is a Skin for Flanders with a full set of fun tasks, Talking Krusty and Burns Monster are two NPCs that will just roam Springfield.
Should I Buy Posts: Talking Krusty Doll, Burns Monster, Devil Flanders
My Opinion On them Now:  The NPCs aren’t worth it..they never have been, but i’m not a big fan of NPCs.  However, Devil Flanders is one of the best skins (in my opinion) available for Flanders.  So that alone makes the 100 donut combo price worth it.  However, if you only have the individual option available (for 75 donuts), that’s a rough one.  I’d wait till Act 3 starts and see if anything new peeks my interest before deciding.
Individually on the Burns Monster (25 Donuts) and Talking Krusty Doll (60 donuts),  not worth the donuts.  So save them for something better…
To sum up…Combo- Worth it.  Individually- Devil Flanders…see what’s coming tomorrow before deciding.  Burns Monster and Talking Krusty Doll- Pass and save your donuts.

And there you have it my friends, the breakdown on the two latest returning premium items to hit our stores.

  1. I personally love Count Burns and you can use him and Booberella to earn Megaphones for Halloween prizes.

  2. It’s funny I haven’t actually seen any of these flashback deals since I have them all already. But I love seeing everyone else getting a chance to enjoy them, I can not recommend Dracula Burns and Devil Flanders enough. I love keeping Devil Flanders on his 1hr show his wrath task, it is soooo awesome.

  3. Just wondering what you guys think about getting booberella or that scary willie skin, i got the count burns/flanders thing so i cant hold out for both, curious as to which one i should go for?

  4. I got Count Burns yesterday and Booberella today. I’ve been wanting them both since I started playing so I’m pretty happy right now. Well worth the donuts I’d say.

  5. I got Count Burns, I have been waiting for him forever. This was my most prized possession in this event. I love the episode it’s from, and all things classic Dracula. I will now have him forever lurking as Dracula in the game. I’m a very happy Halloweener.
    Also, it’s my bday, so double win!

    Devil Flanders 24hrs task need heckhouse facade for Springfield church. Without the facade you can’t use this task.

  7. I’m not particularly interested in these two offers. I’ll spend my donuts on the zombie sandwich instead, unless there is anything more interesting coming up in act 3. I’m not that interested in Boobarella, it has to be a really good offer for me to buy her instead of the sandwich.

  8. Is Booberella returning? I’ve been holding out for her forever!

    I already had Devil Flanders, so my only option was the 2 NPC’s separately. You know me, I like to leave the NPC’s for Brooders 😂, but those are 2 of the few I really like lol… so yes, I got them 😁 I do think that they were very overpriced though.

  10. Count Burns was 120 doughnuts. I got him.

  11. Flashback bundle 4. Two NPCs and a skin and it’s worth it for 100 donuts? To who? Ridiculous. I got two characters AND a building in the future Springfield event for 100 donuts. That’s worth it. A skin and two rockets for 100 donuts? Not for freemium at least. Pass.

  12. I’m still waiting for Boobarella.
    Com’on EA !!!
    Tired of waiting.

  13. In the last post about Count Burns was basically “go for it!” Now it’s “Pass.” What changed?

  14. I really want to get Count Burns, but I already have premium and super premium skins for him. Too bad. Really wish he was in the mystery box instead of Kirk and Luann. Would have been all over that. Maybe next year.

  15. I can confirm that it’s 120 donuts for Count Burns according to my son’s game.

  16. Disappointed that devil Flanders isn’t bundled with the Heck House skin for the church. Pass.

  17. Purchased the Count Burns skin for this event, pretty sure it was 120 do’oh-nuts.

    Doesn’t the Devil Flanders skin come with Heck House? That may have been a previous bundle but that’s how i got it. Which was ultra-worth it in my books.

  18. Booberella is coming! 🙂

  19. Thanks as always.. I’ll skip the count and save for later. Is anyone’s game crashing on start up? I’ve tried force stopping and resetting butt to no avail. I’m on Android (lg v10)

    • Finally got out working.. Had to reinstall :/

    • Same here, though I’m running the BlueStacks Android emulator in Windows. App began crashing on startup Halloween night just after midnight (coincidence? I think not…), and clearing the cache didn’t help, so I ended up clearing the data, which required that I redownload a ton of updates.

      TSTO is starts properly now, though it still crashes regularly.
