    Bought hank Scorpio at Xmas time and was really annoyed by his lack of a proper quest line.

    No dialog, just told you to perform his (for example) 8 hour task, when that finished, all it said was perform his 1 hour task, then 24 hour etc etc, no proper storyline that I would have expected for a premium character.

    Yeah, if you have bought some of the other original characters you will notice the same thing. SVT, for example, is the same way, no proper questline. I guess that was just how they were released initially. I can't remember for sure, but was thinking that Otto was the same, maybe Moleman, I don't know because I haven't bought Moleman yet. Of course, they have tried to create a few for Hank Scorpio since then, which has been nice. For example, he had a bonus storyline for Christmas, and then for this event.

    I could've sworn that after his normal (bad) questline, he had an interesting one with Nelson. They definitely tried to work more into his character, which is nice given the cost.

    His quest with the Denver Broncos is nothing short of genius!

    I wish they would have incorporated him wearing his jacket backwards into an animated task... How about, "Don't give Homer his jacket" where he walks round town wearing his jacket backwards and every now and then he does this pose:

    I think I would laugh for two thousand years.

    Sorry to ask again. Wondering if anyone has a guess based on past events. Since Dr. Colossus will still be in the game after the event is passed, do you think his quest with Hank Scorpio would trigger if I bought the Volcano Lair after the event ended? Trying to be careful with doughnuts and Hank is pricey for me but I like the way the Duelling Honchos quest sounds. Also worried some more limited time items might be around the corner with Saint Patrick's and Easter. Any suggestions appreciated.

    Well, based on past events you may or may not be ok. I can give you a few examples I have personally experienced with premium characters that may or may not help. For Dr. Nick, I did not purchase him until he was packaged in a Gil deal with Krustylu Studios and Sideshow Mel, and a cannon. Anyway, I bought Dr. Nick and I did get a questline for him that was released much earlier, during the Squidport expansion. For Hank Scorpio, I purchased him during the Black Friday sale last year. And I was rewarded with an additional storyline during the Christmas Event in 2014, and they storyline was originally released during the 2013 Christmas event. For the Stonecutter skins, I earned all of the skins during the event, but did not own either Arnie Pye or Jasper. I know that if I had purchased them after the event, I would not have received their Stonecutter storylines. However, when they re-released the Stonecutter skins and items earlier this year, I was able to complete each of these characters storylines, after the event ended, but during a released second sale.

    So from the examples I personally experienced, the Squidport expansion was a permanent addition to the game. While the other storylines were event based. Thus, I would think that maybe the questline with Hank Scorpio will only trigger during this event, or if they have another Superhero event or sale again. But that is just my personal opinion, based on my past experiences. I could be completely wrong.

    Thanks, Brady. That made it a lot clearer choice.

    Apologies, appears I miss-read the quest line, and as confirmed by two others, you don't need the Collider, just both Hank and the Dr Collosus to be free at the same time to trigger. :oops:
