Should I Spend Donuts On the Blocko Dungeon Set and Blocko Angelica Button?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Let the games begin!  After a long hiatus, we finally have a major event in Springfield!  Game of Games has arrived and it looks to be a game fest of nerdy proportions! Of course, an all-new event means all new premium content in our stores, just tempting us to drop those pink 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 Blocko Angelica Button and the Blocko Dungeon Set to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this brick-like me combo to your town…

Building/Decoration: Blocko Dungeon Set
Character: Blocko Angelica Button (full new character)
Donut Cost: 250 Donuts
Size:
4×5
Earns:
2% Bonus on all cash and XP
Conform-O-Meter:
Vanity +100
Can Be Placed:
grass|pavement|boardwalk|pier|dirt
WDTCF?: “The Food Wife” S23 E5 (not actual appearance, but a poster of it…spoof on LEGO Harry Potter games)

Leaves stores June 19th, 2019

Pros
-Helps with the event, earns a special premium rate (and helps with all 4 Acts)
-A couple of fun animated tasks
-Will use the Blocko Dungeon set, even though it’s a decoration, for tasks.
-Blocko Angelica comes with her own questline

Cons
-Not voiced, although the Dungeon has sound when tapped
-The dungeon is not animated, except for Angelica’s visual task there
-Crazy expensive.
-Bonus % is terrible for donuts spent
-Dungeon Set is visually small.  It feels very small in TSTO space, height wise.

Final Thought
This combo is really pricey for what it is/does.  The one benefit, aside from the fact that it’s a full character, is that she will help for all 4 acts.  She’s the only new character that will do so (help for all acts).  As with most items, if you like it grab it, otherwise pass.  This isn’t something you “must have”.  It’s ok, but I don’t think you’ll miss much if you pass.

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 already picked it up.  But whatever you decide, just make sure you make your final decision before it leaves our games for good (or for now).

Here’s a look at her tasks…

Blocko Angelica Button’s Permanent Tasks:

Task Length Earns Location
Polish Her Blocks 1hr $105, 26xp Blockoland
Practice Spells 4hrs $260, 70xp Outside/Visual at Blocko Dungeon Set
Build a Castle 4hrs $260, 70xp Outside/Visual
Find Ancient Secrets 8hrs $420, 105xp Blocko Dungeon Set
Rearrange Dungeon 12hrs $600, 150xp Blocko Dungeon Set
Fight Evil Sorcerer 24hrs $1000, 225xp Blocko Dungeon Set

Also has tasks, like the other Kids in Springfield…Learn By Fun, Put Coins on the Rails (4hrs each), Sneak an Ice Cream (30m), Catch a Movie (2hrs), and Get Caught in Webs (8hrs)

  1. Is it just me, or does this character have no jobs for act 2? According to this article she was supposed to have a part to play in all 4 weeks of the event.

  2. I got it because I have the donuts and have run out of anything else to buy. It’s pricey af though for what it is.

  3. Having built up almost 6k donuts farming during the down time, figured why not? 🙂

  4. I got her because I like Harry Potter and this is a new angle for Angelica. I also farm. If you do not farm, only get her if you really, really want this package.

  5. I had to pass, 250 is just to high I feel for who and what it is. Now if it was Gil as a playable character then I would have coughed up the sprinkles but I don’t feel this character is worth that much. I decided to pass. Yeah she’s cute but it’s really small and will get lost somewhere. Going to wait and see who the premium is for next week.

    Bought it just because I could, now that I see the tasks i like it and think I can build a nice blocko area 😁

  7. There’s nothing/no one in town that she matches, so no. And definitely not at that price. I wish they’d go back to more chars just on their own. I don’t really like or want a lot of the companion buildings, but you can’t store them and keep the chars out wandering. 😐

  8. There were only 2 things I didn’t have, Blocko Angelica obviously and the Dragon/Treasure. I got Angelica because I’m on holiday for 2 weeks and I needed the extra help with the event. That said, the fact I am earning so many donuts these days played into it. I do really like her though… The dragon is a hard pass though, I’m still getting stuff from the yearbook.

  9. I had stopped popping my KEM farm for a while as there was nothing to spend it on. This at least spurred me to run it a few times to recoup the cost. I fear that extreme % people have inflated the price of these things out of the range of reasonable to those who don’t farm. I’m part of that and feel bad about it. I like the character model and think the building is pretty meh….

  10. Blocko Angelica Button and the Blocko Dungeon Set is a pass (for me) as there are too many ‘goodies’ in the Mystery Box for far less (250 sprinkles? yeah that’s EAnflation I don’t support) and I’m doing fine with the Characters I have (about to get the 4th Prize) 🤷🏼‍♂️

  11. I bought her because I farm… I farm because I grind… I grind because I can… lol.. for freemium players, it’s a hard pass..

  12. What else am I going to spend all of those donuts on?

  13. Gonna pass. Doing just fine on the event with the other characters and have not been getting my 4 logins a day. Will harvest her later from a mystery box if she comes back. I have the donuts, just not going to contribute to the great EAnflation.

  14. I wasn’t going to get her until I came here and saw that she was a Blocko. Insta-buy! I didn’t even know about the 2% until now. Thanks for keeping us informed. Plus, it would make sense to have the dungeon small. It’s Legos after all.

  15. It was expensive, but bought it because I had the extra donuts to spend and I was already seven hours behind because the update appeared in my store many hours after most people were already playing.

  17. Small but cute. Her animations are fun and after this dry spell, I waa so desperate for new content, I’d pay doughnuts for a streaming pile of Santa’s Little Helpers’s poo.

  18. I absolutely bought this! I buy all the characters, plus I love LEGO and Harry Potter, so why not?!

  19. I haven’t decided yet whether I will buy this combo. It’s the first new thing coming to TSTO for a looooong time, but it costs too many donuts.

    After the lull period I gathered a few donuts – didn’t gather more because of the Year Book -, but now I have jet engine bikes on the Vault. I’m still under 500% bonus XP, so those bike are very appealing…

  20. Thanks for this post, Alissa!
    I also bought her right away, but I think the price is too much. I only got her because I can farm back the donuts with 10 minutes of RTT.
    The bonus percentage is very low. The questline has three parts, every one with a 4hr job (the first two parts show her animated jobs, the third one is non-visual). And if I’m not mistaken, said 4hr animated jobs are the only animation you’ll see for her.
    I’d discourage the buy for all freemium players: if they have donuts to spend, I’d consider Sophie Krustofski (or the yearbook!) 🙂

  21. Must have if you love Simpsons and Lego 🙂
