Christmas 2017 Prize Guide: Act 2, Prize 2 Conductor Otto & the Arctic Hypertrain

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Snow is falling in Springfield!  It’s finally Christmas time…but Kodos and Kang have their own ideas!  Ticked off that they were left out of the Halloween update, our two favorite Rigellians have decided to invade Christmas! 

This Event is broken up into 2 Acts, with each Acts containing part of the story.  To help you move along with the event you’ll get several prizes per Act.  Each prize will either be something fun for Springfield or something to help you move along in the event.  For the second act, you’re tasked with collecting Tomes           () to unlock each prize!

The second Act 2 Prize awarded at 4,000  is Conductor Otto (and the Arctic Hypertrain) because sometimes you need to take a ride on the Polar-ish Express…

So let’s take a closer look at this second prize and just what happens when you unlock it in your Springfield…

Once you’ve collected 4,000  you’ll automatically be awarded Conductor Otto and the train and you’ll see this message popup:

You’ll be able to place the Hypertrain, and IF you have Otto (remember he’s a premium character) you’ll automatically unlock Conductor Otto.

If You don’t have Otto Conductor Otto will go to your storage until you purchase Otto..

Once unlocked you’ll see Conductor Otto’s unlock message…

And he’s another character in the B.S. League Character Collection…

Again, assuming you have Otto his questline will start right up for you.  You can either use Conductor Otto to battle the Aliens in the Boss Fight, or you can work on his questline.  Whichever works best for you.    Here’s a look at  that questline now:

Angles We Have Heard While High Pt. 1
Conductor Otto starts

Conductor Otto: Ah, man. I’m so bummed!
Bart: Hmm, you’re wearing a suit, and you look sad. Are you an undertaker?
Conductor Otto: No, I was the conductor for the dopest train in the world – the Arctic Hypertrain. But I got fired because I forgot to pick up some kid who was supposed to have a magical holiday trip. At the time, I was having a magical holiday trip of my own.

Angles We Have Heard While High Pt. 2
Lisa starts

Lisa: Otto, is there anything you can do to get your conductor job back?
Conductor Otto: I have to prove I can teach a little kid to believe in Christmas again.
Lisa: We can help! Bart’s totally cynical, but I bet we can convince him that Christmas is real.

Angles We Have Heard While High Pt. 3
Lisa starts

Lisa: O.K., Conductor Otto. You have to prove you can help a kid regain his faith in Christmas. How do you start?
Conductor Otto: Uh, by understanding the problem. Bart, little dude, why don’t you believe in Santa?
Bart: Because I’m ten years old, and I’m not an idiot. I only know one fat man who delivers presents and eats cookies. He also once got his head stuck up a chimney.
Lisa: It’s true. Dad heard a squirrel in the chimney and thought it was planning to steal his nuts.

Angles We Have Heard While High Pt. 4
Conductor Otto starts

Conductor Otto: Okay. To convince a kid that Christmas is real, we just have to get him on the Arctic Hypertrain.
Lisa: I just wish the train wasn’t coal-powered. I would think people at the North Pole would be more concerned about global warming.
Conductor Otto: Oh, I can turn the train green. We just use a certain kind of green fuel. But don’t breathe the fumes, little dudes. Leave that to me.
Make Conductor Otto Stoke the Arctic Hypertrain’s Engine- 8hrs, Earns $420, 105xp

Bart: “To Whom It May Concern, care of North Pole”.  “I hereby affirm that Conductor Otto and the Arctic Hypertrain have restored my faith in Christmas. I will always believe until I am old and gray”. “However, if the bullies make fun of me, I will deny everything and act all cool and grown up”.
Conductor Otto: Thanks, little dudes. That letter is sure to get me my job back.
Lisa: If you want to get high in your career, just come to us.
Conductor Otto: Actually, I prefer to use some guys I know downtown.

What’s Next?

Technically a free land token is next awarded at 7,500  but since that’s not a tangible prize for Springfield, just a free land token.  The next prize we’ll cover is..

Kwanzaa Dr. Hibbert- Awarded at 9,400. This will be the next prize we break down in the prize guidepost.

  1. I never purchased Otto and now I can’t. Is he unavailable until after this event ends. I want to be able to use the train – it’s a beauty. If you read this and know of a way I can get the bus/Otto I’d really appreciate a response. Thanks!

  2. I’m going to use this as my Hogwarts train 😊

  3. Alias de la plume

    Wish you didn’t have to pay to get this character

  4. I wish we could have the train on a track instead of sitting on the ground. I guess it could be difficult to do since we have the Monorail track going around our towns.

  5. When are they going to release land for us to spend our land tokens on. I need more room to expand my Christmas section. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Thank you for all you do to keep us informed.

  6. Was disappointed that the hypertrain is a decoration, but all in all a good event, hope the regaillian spaceship can be repaired

  7. Its my B-day and i just got Santa! WooHoo! Im a true Xmas baby! Lol🎅🎄🎅

  8. Conductor Otto (and the Arctic Hypertrain) – you are my true Hero out of the BS League, because I work at a medical dispensary 😊👍🌿

    So many quality Characters / Character Skins for this Xmas Event

  9. It sure seems like the collection of Xmas Materials (sacred tomes, gift wrap, etc.) slows down tremendously after the quests and BS Battles are completed…

    Unless I’m missing something, the only ways to collect more Xmas Materials is by:

    1.) Tapping Robo-Funzos
    2.) Daily Challenges
    3.) Do the Re-Gifting Machine
    4.) Tap Robo-Funzos in Neighbor’s Towns (not worth the effort)

    Am I missing something?

    • No, although you should have completed a good portion of the prize track at that point. I honestly don’t know why EA bothers with the bonut rounds anymore when they make them so hard to get any.

    • Nope, these are all the same ways to get the 3 currencies in Act 1 and pre- and finished Boss Battles in Act 2. If you seen the calendar on this blog then you should be on 12,411 Sacred Tomes (Act 2 prize currency) and have the Christmas Cabin by the end of today, if you already have more prize currency then you should not worry about the currency slowing down.

  10. I still don’t have the school bus available to buy in my A game though I do see it in my B game 🙁

    • You haven’t somehow got it stored in your inventory ?
      Be a nice glitch if you didn’t have to shell out, and worth a peek

    • If you’ve searched your entire character inventory and no Otto/Bus (they should be a set – in the section with Homer and Bart’s picture – at the top), then I would try removing and re-loading the game. Just make sure you log in after you re-load.
