What do you regret NOT buying?

    A bunch of holiday items. I missed stuff for Halloween (I had just started playing), the submarine (U.S.S. Tom Clancy? I think), the casino and sign (didn't have money for donuts for any of those) and most recently some of the Forth of July stuff (Lisa statue and fireworks). If I'd known I was going to have to buy a boatload for the Yard Sale, I would've at least found money for the July items. Now all I can do is hope EA will rerelease them (or in several cases, RE-rerelease them :cry: ).

    i regret nothing most of the things i would of wanted to get where too expensive for me to regret not buying them (solid gold mansion as a example)

    besides most of the limited edition stuff will come back if i decide to waste money later.

    I will regret not buying the Mayan Bundle.
    300 donuts it's way too much for skins.

    Devil Flanders
    Bad Dream House
    House of Evil
    Talking Krusty Doll

    The Indian Cheif with Pow Wow Casino

    The Grumble

    So when each holiday comes back around I will get them.

    I regret starting TSTO two days too late to pick up Kumiko, and had been hoping she'd be in the yard sale. Not nearly enough women in Springfield.

    Probably the smarter one here.

    Moe's limo. Grampa vs wrestler billboard.
    The boombox from the whacking day update.

    Also, I regret not buying more bottled water when it was on sale.

    I've been playing long enough that the things I regretted not getting came back. LOL. And, I didn't fall into that trap again, I snagged them all up on the second go!

    Witch Marge
    The Mausoleum
    The Ray Gun
    Santa Homer and his village
    Abe Lincoln.

    The funny thing about Homer is, I probably could have skipped the Santa Skin. I love the Mr Plow skin and it's animations, so unless Homer is busy doing something for quests, he's in his Mr Plow skin. Hopefully, when Christmas rolls back around, Santa Homer will be more relevant.

    Only regrets:

    Devil Flanders

    There are buildings/items I'd like to have but I prefer to spend donuts only on playable characters. I did get Wishing Well/Leprechaun and Sham Rock Cafe/Yupprechaun, which I wouldn't have done if I'd researched first - I was so excited for new content that I pounced before I found out those two characters weren't playable...

    I regret not having Gymnastics Lisa -- i wasn't playing yet when she was first offered and I'd love to have her. Only regret so far, not getting the Christmas thang that lets Homey fly over Springfield in his sleigh. I've learned my lesson: made sure I got everything in the yard sale, espec. Mayan team. I missed the first Whacking Day by mere days, and I was glad to have Ninja Homer, but I would like the chance to buy more whacking stuff, or even better, whack away!

    The only thing I've kicked myself over was the witch Marge skin. However, I think I made the right choice spending all my donuts on the ray gun/Kodos.

    I'm going to add to my list the Casino Sign. I actually bought the casino but not the sign!

    I regret not starting earlier too. If I had, I would likely have gotten the Subatomic Supercollider and the Mapple Store (buildings I still don't have today) and other Halloween/Christmas items that I do have but had to spend donuts to obtain. The Mapple Store hurts a bit because I could have gotten it back when I started playing as it was still available then. I even had enough donuts to do so, but I had no idea it was going to be removed and thought I would have the opportunity later.

    I have a bit of regret too about not getting the Fruit Bat-Man skin for Mr. Burns, considering it was from a fun episode, it is the only skin he has that is premium, and it is the only skin that actually has tasks at the Burns Manor (imagine that!!).

    However, overall, I have so many characters and buildings now that it's difficult to feel like I really miss any of those.

    Ouch! ... EA is rather low, for selling the casino & the sign separately.
