    Barney is over priced at 250 donuts, you can get Otto for 120 I think, Fink's lab isnt too expensive either

    last year the ray gun dropped in price from 150 to 100 near the end of the event
    i am hoping this will be the case again and if not i will be buying the ray gun and Kodos at about November 3rd.
    I am fortunate that i was able to get the bowlarama and Barney for santa coins as he seems quite expensive for a character that doesnt give a premium payout

    Well, if I had the donuts, I would buy the ray gun and get Kodos. Here's why:
    As you said, it's limited time.
    Ray gun offers a 3.75% bonus on all jobs, on top of getting a character. (And there's also the crashed UFO, but I don't know what kind of bonus it gives, if any.)
    Kodos is a premium character with premium payout. I think Barney actually is not, as the Bowlarama was originally a special event item that was later offered for donuts.

    I really hope this happens again! I've got 82 donuts right now, I could totally make it to 100 by November if I keep getting those bonus boxes!

    Ray gun for sure, could wait to see if it drops.

    You get Kudos, a ray gun (kangs) and a second crashed ray gun.

    A premium character and about 5-6% in bonus for 150, best deal that i've ever seen, consider jimbo is 120 lol

    Okay so I've amassed about 175 donuts since I've started playing I've never bought any and ive only spent four by accident befor I knew I could have the confirmation thing. I've been saving all my donut to by barney/barneys bowlarama as he seems like the most integral simpsons character I don't have but instead I was wondering should I get the laser cannon kodos (or kang i forget what one I have and which I need) and the downed space ship for 150 donuts you seem to get a lot and its limited time so maybe ill never have the chance again but in reality I want barney more. So you weigh in, give me some pros and cons and your advice on what you think I should do

    Sounds like you'd rather have Barney, but here is what you were looking for.

    +less donuts
    +premium jobs (50% more than normal characters)
    +premium decoration (someone said 3.75% or something?) - adds this percent onto every dollar and xp you make
    +2 decorations (crash site, plus a fresh ray gun decoration)
    +easier to decorate/incorporate into Springfield
    - I'd say it has a weaker task less than Barney.

    +premium building (unlocks 20 hour tasks for Ned and Homer for premium payout)
    +better task list (lay in the gutter, sober up, binging - all great outdoor tasks)
    -more donuts
    -normal priced jobs (won't earn additional cash)
    -single decoration
    -harder to decorate (the ground it defaults with is an off-color pavement than the one we have, so it looks funny either on grass or pavement)
