Should I Spend Donuts on the Magic Monorail Returning Items?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

A little magic popped into Springfield yesterday, in the form of the Magic Monorail Station.  With it a few returning items magically returned to our stores…just asking us to drop our sprinkles.

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 Ray Patterson, Jesse Grass, the Self-Reliant House, the Monorail Cafe, Krusty’s Drive-Thru Station, the Golf Course or the Mechanical Ants to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding these throwbacks to your town…

 

ALL ITEMS LEAVE STORES OCTOBER 2nd

Item: Ray Patterson
Cost:
 60 Donuts
What Does It Do?: 
A full character for Springfield, helps with the Monorail.  But he does NOT earn at a premium rate. (was originally free, prize during the Monorail event)
My Opinion On It Now: 
Meh. This one is a pass.

Item: Jesse Grass
Cost:  
100 Donuts, 20 Donut Rebate, NET 80 Donuts
Previous Post: Should I Buy Jesse Grass
What Does It Do?: 
Premium character, has a fun task at Krusty Burger, and helps with the Monorail
My Opinion On It Now:
 I was a fan before, I’m a fan now.  Pick him up.

Item: Self-Reliant House
Cost:
35 Donuts
Previous Post: Should I Buy
What Does It Do?:
Just a house for Springfield (no one interacts with it)
My Opinion On It Now:
 Meh.  Doesn’t do much, but if you like it it’s reasonable in price enough…pick it up.

Item: Monorail Cafe
Cost: 
60 Donuts, Rebate 15 Donuts, NET 45 Donuts
Previous Post: Should I Buy
What Does It Do?: 
Another one that’s just a building…no character interacts with it

 Pass.  Overpriced for what it is/does

150 Donuts, Rebate 50 Donuts, NET 100 Donuts

Monorail station.  Comes with tracks and extension pieces

  1. I wish EA would give us an actual “golf course” – maybe something like Paiseland!. I have the prop shop because I love the spirit guide coyote, but no where to put it in my town. I would want at least three “holes” to make it look like an actual golf course….

  2. Had to get the Krusty station, even though I know it is not a great value.
