Jebediah Springfield Statue Skin Glitch…That Isn’t a Glitch

There seems to be a ton of confusion with many players about the recent Act III prize award of the “Damaged Jebediah Statue.”  I understand your confusion…as EA, once again, in their infinite desire to make things clear and easy for the user (NOT!!!) have failed to mention that this is a SKIN… As in, you have to have the statue first, or the skin won’t work.

It has been so long since most of us long-time players got the statue, that it is easy to forget that many of you started playing the game well after August of 2013. Makes sense…

But, there is an answer that should make it clear that this glitch isn’t a glitch…

Waaaaaaay back in TSTO time, Alissa posted this on how to earn the “Secret Prize” of the Jebediah Springfield Statue.

The cool thing about this…is that you also get 10 free donuts, along with the statue.  So…if you are getting a notice that you “need to build the statue” to use the skin you won (makes sense, I guess), then take the time to do what the post tells you to do.

And when you are done, click your heels three times and say, “There’s no place like home, there’s no place like home,”  and you will be sent back to Kansas…or Act II…which how many acts this event SHOULD have had!

And as one reader pointed out, it is strange that once the head is lopped off, the patina on the statue changes from Gold to Gray…but, maybe there is a “life force” that burns bright in old Jeb, that goes dark when the head is removed. Or, EA is just being lazy and careless again. You decide.

So, yes…another skin prize in this event…a way for the programmers and animators to be EALPish (EA Lazyass Programming), and not have to come up with new content.  But, hey…it was free…right?

As you can tell by the screen shot at the top of this post, I placed mine in my town square, in front of my cannon…with Abe watching the mayhem.

Hope that clears up this “Clear as mud” situation!

Peace Out…

  1. Unlocked while I was in a neighbor town and the skin does not work. Tapping on Jebediah statue does nothing. Had the statue for years. Not sure if it has to do with the fact that it was unlocked while in a neighboring town.


  2. I earned the damaged statue, said it was stored in my inventory and I can’t find it anywhere. And when are they going to fix the glitch where you have to buy land with tokens???

    Haha. Just kidding.

  3. I don’t know if this was mentioned, but when you get he Lard Lad skin it puts a Lard Lad in your inventory. Or at least it did me.


  4. I’ve been playing forever (ok 5 + years). Way back in the days before donut confirm spend notifications and not being able to sell certain items, players could sell pretty much everything. That is when I foolishly sold my Jebediah Springfield statue to see if I could get 10 more donuts if I did the 10 taps on Homer. I never found out about getting 10 more donuts because, for me, tapping 10 times on Homer doesn’t result in anything. No statue, nothing. I’d really just like the statue. I totally admit it’s my fault and was a dumb thing to do. I’d even pay 10 donuts for it. Any thoughts? Is it worth contacting EA?


  5. I was wondering about the colouring on the statue as well…but then I got to thinking that an awful lot of the stuff in this little adventure is from the Simpsons movie, specifically, wrecked Springfield toward the end. The statue in the movie looks a lot like the statue skin we got in act 3. Still, come on EA if you are going to give me all this other Simpson’s Movie stuff….where is my Epiphatree?


  6. I unlocked the statue skin whilst in a neighbours town and have been unable to switch to it. It’s gone…wouldn’t use it anyway but you always want what you can’t have – curses

  7. Since so many people are complaining about running out of space, they should be happy about all the skins – they don’t take up more room! There’s just no pleasing people…

  8. They took the best prize of this act of uninspiration and made it really boring


  9. Has anyone else noticed a “glitch” in XP returns from the rat truck? I just spent 6 million and earned about 1/100th donuts of what I normally get. 😦
