Should I Spend Donuts On Flanders’ Frozen Car?

Quick Note:Yes, Gil has returned to Springfield this morning with a Pagan Simpson Bundle.  I’ll have the full details of the deal and the SIB up soon, likely first thing tomorrow morning (I’ve got a super busy work day today). -Alissa 

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The snow is falling in Springfield and that can only mean it’s Winter time in our pocket sized towns!  And of course it wouldn’t be an event in Springfield without premium items in our stores, just tempting us to spend sprinkles on them!

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 Flanders’ Frozen Car to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this frozen disaster to your Springfield…

flanders_frozen_car

Decoration/Building: Flanders’ Frozen Car
Donut Price: 50 Dounts
Earns: 2.25% bonus on all cash and XP
Size: 4×6
Conform-O-Meter:
 Vanity +100

Leaves Stores when the Event Ends

Pros
-Comes with a small bit of dialogue between Homer and Flanders
-From a classic Simpsons episode
-Decent, but not great, bonus % for donuts spent

Cons
-It’s basically like a frozen statue.  Does nothing

Final Thought
Premium or Freemium:
This is one of those meh items for me.  While it’s from a classic episode it doesn’t do anything for me in terms of getting me to spend the donuts.  (and for those asking I don’t know what it’ll look like when the ice melts)  So i’d classify this as a premium or freemium toss up.  If you like the item grab it…otherwise pass and save your donuts.

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 as a premium player, I’m passing on this one. Just remember this is limited time, and will be leaving our stores once the event ends. So be sure to make your final decision before it’s gone from our games for good. (or for now..)

Here’s a look at the dialogue that comes with it…

Homer: Hey Flanders, remember that time I crashed your car into a hydrant and it froze solid?
Ned: Then you crashed it into a salt silo and it rusted all over.
Homer: Haha, that’s the natural give-and-take of our relationship.  I give, you take.
Flanders: THEN you got high on exhaust fumes and crashed it into another hydrant!
Homer: Give and take.
Flanders: But when does it ever end?
Homer: Don’t worry.  Sooner or later I’m bound to not walk away from crashing your car into something hilarious.

What are your thoughts on Flanders’ Frozen Car?  Will you be picking it up or have you already?  Where have you placed it in your Springfield? Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

    It may melt and then be animated with water from the hydrant when the snow is gone. I’ll bet it will.

  4. Seems to me the snow items melt, ice sticks around all year. I’m guessing the appearance stays the same.

  5. I cannot remember. Did I read that now you do not have to place an item to benefit from the bonus %.

  6. Picked up the Gil Deal for the Ba’al statue. Hilarious animation and costumes for the task. With all 5 Simpsons, it earns 200 antlers every 4 hours.

  7. I’m like one day away from getting all the prizes… this event has been super chill! Some of the new items are a little bleh, some are pretty cool, but I’m super happy that there are returning items!!!

  9. Oh my gosh – on the Gil deal, I don’t really care about it at all, except take a good look at the screen offer…..I’m almost willing to buy it just for Maggie to have that outfit! (Yes, I know it would only be for the task there).

  10. I picked it up since it seemed like a fair value for bonus %.

  11. The idea of not knowing what it would look like after winter was enough to get me to pull the trigger. I like it.

    • It’s funny… I’m not buying it for the same reason that you did buy it. But I’m glad some folks are buying it, so I can eventually find out the answer (and maybe buy it at some future date, if the re-release it). 🙂

  12. I wonder what happens by the end of winter when the ice melts..

    • With only judging the way it looks, and Homer’s comment about hitting a fire hydrant, I’m guessing a non snow covered car, crashed into a hydrant, that spurts water, hence the icicles. Reminds me of the car decoration in K-Land.

  14. I’m at work so can’t check; but have they introduced Homer’s car crashes into the chestnut tree?

    If so, this would go great next to that.
