Should I Buy Any of the Returning Items in the Who Shot Mr. Burns Mini-Event?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

There’s a mystery in Springfield to be had, Who Shot Mr. Burns?!  Well the answer to that may surprise you.  But an all new mini-event has landed in our pocket-sized towns and with it arrives a bunch of returning items to our stores.  All items tempting you to drop those sprinkles…

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 any of the returning items 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/offers leave stores May 23rd

Item: Jay G Bundle
Cost: 225 Donuts, 100 Donut Rebate, NET 125 Donuts
Previous Post: Should I Buy Jay G
What Does It Do: Full character for Springfield.  Comes with his mansion and Goose. (and yes, his pool too)
My Opinion On It Now:
 Good price for what you get with it.  Right in that sweet spot of Spending donuts.  I’d pick it up if you didn’t already. Plus he’ll help with this event

Item: Rich Texan
Cost: 85 Donuts, 30 Donut Rebate, NET 55 Donuts
Previous Post: Should I Buy
What Does It Do: Full premium character for Springfield.  A few fun animated tasks. 
My Opinion On It Now:
 Not a bad price with the rebate for a stand alone character.  Not a must buy, but a decent one.

Character: Russ Cargill
Cost: 80 donuts
Previous Post: Should I Buy
What Does It Do: Full premium character for Springfield, comes with set of tasks. 
My Opinion On It Now:
 Eh it’s a toss up.  Not the best buy of this round.  If you really want him grab him, otherwise pass.

Item: Hank Scorpio & the Volcano Lair
Cost: 200 Donuts, Rebate 100 Donuts, NET 100 Donuts
Previous Post: Should I Buy
What Does It Do: Full premium character for Springfield.  Volcano Lair earns income.  Hank will also earn event currency for this event. 
My Opinion On It Now:
 The best buy of these items, BUY IT.

Item: Lampwick & the Rocket Car
Cost: 120 Donuts, Rebate 20 Donuts, NET 100 Donuts
Previous Post: Should I Buy
What Does It Do: Full character for Springfield.  Rocket car earns bonus % 
My Opinion On It Now:
 Another good buy.  Anytime you can get a character combo for 100 Donuts it’s really an instant buy IMO.  Pick this one up.

  1. Rich Texan – I spent my Sprinkles in a hot minute! Jay G Bundle along with Hank Scorpio with Volcano Lair (great deals, about the only thing worthwhile for this Mini-Event, because everything else sucks!) 😜

  2. CaptainRobertz

    Debating between Lampwick and Lurleen in my vault. Any suggestions? I’m totally torn and can only do 1.

  3. I must be moving up in the world – this is the first time where I didn’t see any returning items to buy because I already had them all!

  4. I don’t see Lampwick and the Rocket Car available in my “Who Shot Mr. Burns? (Part Three)” I instead have Powell Mansion for 120 donuts with 50 back. Is this a glitch or am I just missing where to buy Lampwick?

    • Maybe you have him already? Check your characters inventory. I got him in a mystery box and he stayed in storage for quite awhile.

  5. I had Lampwick, Hank and Texas guy already.
    Bought Jay right away He is a great deal (full character, NPC, building and decoration). besides helping in the mini event.

    In my opinion, if you can only afford one of these items – I agree with Alissa – I would buy Hank and his volcano… your Springfield will be so much more complete with a evil volcanic lair… but seriously Hank has some really cool animations and has been sometimes been used in the events. 100 donuts is a bargain.

  7. Off topic: I LOVE the sun blocker! I can’t stop tapping it!

  8. Josephine Kick@$$

    I had them already, but would buy whatever I could afford if not. Great deals. I love Lampwick’s visual tasks.

  9. I bought Jay G, a little large but I’ve created a good spot for it. And really the only good thing I didn’t have.

  10. Already had Texan & Lampwick, but was happy to finally get Scorpio for such a good deal.

    I’m hoping I can get enough donuts together to get Russ before time runs out. I have around 50 now, so I should be fine with rail yard & ‘Where’s Maggie’ helping me out.

    Jay G I’m unsure about. I doubt I’ll get him….though his house is awesome….hmmmm.

  11. Yeah! Happy with Lampwick and Jay’s G! The rest I had for a lo j’ai time. I started farming dor the first time, but with RT, goes quicker, it’s good! I still don’t buy everything but it’s good to have the extra donuts.

  12. Dang, I want Jay G, Rich Texan and Lampwick, but dropping 280 donuts at once is rough.

    I like to think the sun blocker gives us hope to one day have a night/day cycle in towns. If they can display what time it is, and they can darken the game, its possible, right?

    Not a returning item, but…..
    I’m working a little in Krustyland and I received a notice that Skinner could not perform a task because I didn’t have
    Happy Little Elves Ride
    My research indicates WAY, WAY back in 2013 it was a Prize Track item.
    Has it eve returned?
    I had a nice Krustyland with limited items, but now I’m redesigning it as I add to it. And I got lots of land.

  15. Dark_R0nin910

    In my opinion, no deal here is bad. If you have the donuts, either go for it, or wait till the next event

  16. I already had all these characters. Imho, all options are good (including Russ Cargill, whose tasks are funny). The only drawback, with Jay G, is that his 24h task require Goosius: therefore, being a joined job, it will not be sped up by the unemployment office.

  17. After so much breaking my head to stay in a way that I liked, the mansion and the pool are stayed that. And it’s on the side of the Hip Hop stage 🙂

  18. With a discount donut rebate of 100 donuts, you’d be dumb if you didn’t cop them. 50% off to the original prize is always a good deal 💪

  19. Alas I have all of them except Jay G (and have no interest in him)!

  20. aw, no new items for those that already have that…

  21. Hank Scorpio is an AMAZING deal, I hope people pick him up. Great character with great animations!
