For those who already have Barney, are you gonna buy the shuttle and outfit?

    No. This one's a gouger. I'll tap him in your town for the new audio. And we get some kind of regular rocket for free so the shuttle can sit and spin. Also I totally don't believe Barney as an astronaut. Just not as plausible as the rest of this stuff . The Twonicorn is More Likely you know?

    Is that a "yes" answer to my question?

    No, sorry. :mrgreen:
    Just responding to the thread question.



    Bought!

    Turns out the shuttle does have a 2.5% bonus

    I bought it, even though the price was a little steep. I love Barney's animation.

    Nope, and I'm not really interested in the event itself since the items are located in Florida not actually Springfield. My OCD has enough to deal with.

    I'm not buying it. Would have to purchase donuts to get it, and I don't love it enough to spend actual money on it.

    I bought it, I love it!

    Plus for the first task he gets 2 stars to Quimbys 1 (typical premium double up) not sure if it'll be a huge bonus long term though.

    All I could think was

    Lisa - dad that place has terrible pizza

    Homer - Ya but there's TWO!

    Nope. Don't want to pay that many donuts for a skin for an already-premium character. Doesn't matter that it helps with the mini-event. These are generally designed such that you don't actually need premiums to get through them, and then afterwards it's just another skin I probably won't use.

    The price is too high for those who paid full price for Barney and Bowl-a-Rama. The skin should be free for people who paid full price for barney. Only people who pay for discounted Barney get it free? It makes no sense. The shuttle should be separate or at a discounted bundle for those who paid for Barney full price.
    I paid 250 donuts for Barney. Whats my reward? Pay 120 for a skin others get for free? HAHA that will teach me, clearly EA is telling me I am a sucker.

    Bought it, didn't actually get it, but lost the donuts anyway. I'm still waiting to hear back from EA support about it. I've seen posts from at least 3 other people who had the same problem. So I'd be cautious about purchasing it, as it seems to be glitched. Obviously some people have had no issues with it, but some of us have.

    Agreed. Hitting us for an additional 10 bucks after already having spent 20 for a single character is a bit on the greedy side.

    Bought it, although I think it would be fair if skin+shuttle has a discount as well for those who already has Barney. Otherwise it looks like crying injustice.

    If I can get donuts before the event ends, I'll get him. I had 110 up until a couple of days ago but I was stupid and bought a couple of things. I should have passed.

    Question:

    I'm a freemium player, and intend to stay this way.

    With the rebate, Barney technically costs 120 donuts.

    Do i still need to have 250 donuts to trigger the purchase?

    I'm short of donuts, and am careful about overspending on donuts if i do intend to get it.

    Thanks for helping :)

    Yes, unfortunately you must have 250 donuts to trigger the purchase.

    Bought shuttle and Barney skin, it was an instant purchase for me as I love the episode that this mini event ties in with.

    I refuse to buy Premium skins for already Premium characters. It's a waste and a rip-off, imo.
