Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

  1. I would like to get this combo but I have yet to unlock Springfield heights. So if this building can only be placed on mountains won’t there be any issue? Thanks.

    • There shouldn’t be. You can click on it to buy and see where it let’s you place it. As long as you don’t place it in your town you won’t be charged the donuts

      • So I tried and it doesn’t work. It gets placed on the mountains and can’t be moved + it glows in red, though I didn’t try to confirm the purchase but I doubt it would go through.

        • Yea if you can’t place it it would go into inventory if you could purchase

        • Did you check various spots on the mountain where you have opened a land square? Also, is there room in front of it, or do you have things right up against them? (I don’t remember whether that’s necessary, but it might be.) It seems to me like it should work on any open space on the mountain range, since we’ve had two other items that went on the mountain range before the land behind it was opened. It won’t work if you try to put it on the mountain behind a square of land in front of it that you haven’t yet opened.

          • Yes I have land opened in front of the mountains and there is also room. The thing is because I don’t have Springfield heights the mountain range is in shadow(just like unopened land). I think that’s the problem because when I try to buy it it gets placed on the mountain range and I can’t even move it it is just stuck in there.

            • Oh – you don’t have Springfield Heights at all? I thought you just meant you didn’t have the SH expansion yet….sorry!

              • No problem. Yeah, I started playing from the beginning again after a few years. Hopefully they’ll make him a returning character.

  2. Thank you for the rundown!! Normally i would get him because he’s Black (want to have my Springfield as diverse as possible) and he’s voiced – ALL Premium characters should always be voiced for all those donuters! And he has a cool mountain base… BUT!! HE’S SO BORING 😭😭😭😭😭😭 he doesn’t explode anything, he doesn’t run around with a flame thrower or water gun or play with cats or anything! Cadet Lisa outfit is funnier than him lolol
    Also I can’t see his building properly because of the damn snow!!! Please EA replace the snow with Radioactive Green glow for Springfield. Glow not snow! Glow not snow lol ☢️☢️☢️☢️☢️☢️☢️☣️☣️☣️☣️☣️☣️☣️☣️

  3. Instant buy as an old GI Joe fan. (12 inch, not the 4 inch ones my sons had) Using him for event currency now but looking forward to his questline and tasks!


    Daily challenges aren’t very challenging

  5. I think Joe and Lincoln are going to have a log splitting contest

  6. I like how this is a mountain range building. I hope we get more of them

  7. I got him as well. Instant buy for me.

  8. spend those 🍩’s because it’s ‘G.I. Joe’ (ex spouse of ‘Malibu’ Stacy Lovell!), he’s voiced and comes with ‘Sergeant Thug’s Mountaintop Command Post’ (go ahead and relive your o.g. G.I. Joe 12″ action figures childhood from the 60’s – 70’s lol!) but be careful of those ‘death -bringer missiles that it really fires’ (seriously Bart Simpson was launching them out the car window in “Lisa vs Malibu Stacy” Season 5 Episode 14!) 😂

    Once again, thank you Alissa for the prompt updates ! 🤓👍🏻

  9. I got him to, he was a instant buy for me. His building is unique, an it go’s in the mountains. Only the second one to do that.

    I highly recommend him, even outside of him earning the event currency, I’d say he’s a cool classic character that’s well remembered.
