Should I Spend Donuts on the Film Set?

Wondering if you should add the Film Set to your Springfield?   Well before you hit that confirm button, lets break down the Pros and Cons of adding the film set to your Springfield.

tsto film set
Building Name: Film Set
Donut Price: 120 Donuts
Dimensions: 8×10
Payout: $350 & 26XP every 16hours
Return on Investment: $2.92 & 0.217XP/Donut Spent
-Comes with a McBain Costume for Wolfcastle
-Unlocks a McBain Quest line
-McBain animations are some of the best in the game
-It is an expensive addition to your town for a building only 1 character can use
-Cannot be sold. Once you purchase it, it’s yours forever.
Final: The only reasons not to buy this addition is if donuts are limited, or you’re against violence. This is one of the best premium items you can purchase in the game, in my opinion, and has some of the best animations to date for TSTO.
