    Strictly my opinion, but the price is amazing to me. Otto has outdoor tasks I love (sleeps on top of the bus x 12 hours, works underneath the bus with legs/knees showing x 1 hour, and my favorite "jam on the guitar" for 4 hours.). Also, he just looks cool wandering around Springfield because of his bright colors. And all his tasks pay out premium rates. To be honest, he's one of my favorite characters in my whole town. (And I am renowned for my honesty.). (Couldn't resist, folks)

    70 donuts sounds like a really good deal!

    As a rule I have put off buying any premium characters until I finish the freemium quests and get all of those characters and buildings. However, I am not averse to spending donuts on limited time characters that I really like.

    I couldn't, however, pass up this deal on Otto. Since he is on my short list of characters to get anyway once I reach L 43 (or whatever the top level will be by then) I figured I could not go wrong saving myself 50+ donuts by getting him now.

    I'm freemium but had some donuts to spare so I got him. Couldn't resist ol' Gil. Hope I have enough donuts left over if there's something really sweet in the next update.

    Said this in a different thread but will repeat it here.

    I'm trying to save donuts until the next Gil sale on them, so after I splurged on the yard sale, I told myself I'd only buy limited characters until that next sale comes - I don't expect a donut sale until Christmas, though I hope I'm wrong.

    I couldn't resist this deal, though. I saved myself 50 donuts on a character I would've eventually purchased, so it's essentially the same as getting 50 free donuts. Would've been stupid to pass...

    Get Otto!!


    I dont see this type of deal coming about again for him! The saving on the donuts is huge!!

    I bought my daughter Otto this morning, she dont know yet so should be a shock when she loads the game later Hehe knowing her tho she probably wont notice :lol:

    I bought the CBH on the last release and she noticed 3days later wth?! :lol:

    Agree with everyone above. I was planning to buy Otto next, anyway, so this was a real bargain! Maybe not the best I ever had, but a good one. :-)

    I do hope 133 (or so) donuts will be enough for whatever's coming next!

    Highly doubtful! :P If it a big update lands 133 donuts wont be no where near enough other than decorational items, normally when a big update comes out i buy 900donuts each time sometimes i might splash out on the boatload :D

    That being said defo get Otto as this deal for him is REALLY good :)

    I wanted him or Frink or Luann, so it helped me to choose and the price is just amazing for the bus and a 0,5% multiplier.

    I had saved up my donuts and bought a small pack from Gil a couple weeks ago. Been debating whether to get Luann or Otto with them. Now I can get both! :mrgreen:

    Yeah, I think from now on im only buying characters whove already been in a sale. This otto deal coming so soon after I bought him REALLY stings.

    What would be nice is if they done a "Barney" deal!!

    As i'm sure LOADS of people would get him if he was offered at a lower price or half price :D

    I'd pay the 250 donuts to get Barney without the Bowlarama - that is one ugly building :shock:

    But I did get Otto - no regrets.
