Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Let the heisting begin! The latest event in Springfield, The Springfield Job, is all about pulling off elaborate Heists…well not too elaborate Homer is involved…in a bet between two Nuclear Power Plant owners.
As we all know, that limited-time label can tempt us 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 Wheels McGrath and the First Class Lounge to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this machete man to your town…
Character(s): Wheels McGrath
Building/Decoration: The First Class Lounge
Donut Cost:150 Donuts
Earns: $300, 30xp/12hrs
Conform-O-Meter: Gluttony +20
Can Be Placed: grass|pavement|boardwalk|pier|dirt
Leaves stores May 9th
-Comes with a questline (which can wait until the event is over to complete)
-Helps with Heists, earns at a premium rate
-Will use First Class Lounge for tasks
-First Class Lounge is animated (meh) when in use (lights on, door opens, plane lightly shakes. Sign lights up)
-Heavily priced for a one-off character from a recent episode (although what do we expect in prices these days?)
-The Lounge has a large footprint, at 12×9
Premium or Freemium:
It’s not a bad buy. Fairly average in price. It’s nice that he helps with the event and he’s voiced, but it’s a pretty standard combo. Loads of good stuff still coming up in the game and Wheels will be around until the end. So unless you’re worried about prize track currency (and Wheels is a better buy for that than the Calabresi bundle), I’d pass for now. See where you stand on getting him when the event nears then end…
Of course, in the end, it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would or wouldn’t do…and as a premium player, I picked this one up. Lounge works nicely by my Airport. But whatever you decide, just make sure you make your final decision before it leaves our games for good (or for now). Plus this is one of those items that’ll help with the event, so if you’re planning on getting it to it sooner rather than later….
