Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Hope you’ve got your dancing shoes on and your cell phones ready to light up the night because Homerpalooza has arrived in Springfield! That’s right the pop fest has begun! Our stores are now jam-packed with premium items just tempting us to drop our sprinkles on!
Of course with that limited-time label it can be tempting to grab everything in sight 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 New Bedlam Rest Home and Leon Kompowsky to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this king of pop to your town…
Character: Leon Kompowsky
Building/Decoration: New Bedlam Rest Home
Donut Cost: 150 Donuts
Earns: $300, 30xp/12hrs
Conform-O-Meter: Obedience +10
Jam Session Star Rating: Starts out with a rating of 3.5 stars (pop singer)
Leaves stores August 29th
-It’s Leon, aka MJ, who can forget this classic episode? (“Lisa it’s your birthday..”)
-Starts off with a 3.5 star rating, highest so far for premium
-Will use New Bedlam Rest Home for 2 tasks (and New Bedlam is animated when in use, Lights turn on and off)
-Not voiced (but not surprised on this one…)
-Pricey for a character/building combo (although cheaper than BGM)
-Animated tasks are ok, but not as great as they could be.
It doesn’t really matter what I say here, most of you that are premium players already picked Leon up, simply because it’s Leon. Classic character from a classic episode, and outside of BGM it’s a character I recall a lot of you asking about. I get it. That’s why your a premium player. To jump on the characters you want. And truth be told, I got him too.
Leon is not necessary to successfully complete this event, but he’s a nice to have. (and not an awful buy) Unlike BGM, he’s only here until Act 2 ends (Aug 29th)…BGM is here until the event ends. Leon is less expensive than BGM, but he’s only good for Pop Venues. I’d weigh your options between BGM and Leon, and see who you like more. Or pass on both and save your donuts for something down the road.
Of course in the end it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would or wouldn’t do…and as I premium player I can tell you I picked him up. But whatever you decide, just make sure you make your final decision before he leaves our games for good (or for now).
Here’s a look at his tasks…
