  • Even before that I like Blinky fish mutating further into a fish man. :D
  • Now I want it even more! Too bad I wiped all my donuts already :neutral: Hmmm...

    *donates 1 donut to the "save the peonies" fund
  • Sweet, just brought it before. I was hoping it got patched with a multiplier.

    i dont think the character is "famous" enough for such a price, but dont see any other character/building combo offering a 4.5% bonus payout for 170 donuts...i think that is why they did 4.5%, it was too late for them to bring down price in this event since they already released it and people bought it already

    for those of us who already bought it, was a pleasant surprise
  • Blinky Monster is awesome. I was saving donuts for something good and I spent them on him. SO glad I did! He is awesome and has to quests. The Spooky Dock that comes with him is great as well.
  • 4.5% is tempting... but for me it's still a pass. :neutral:

    If you want to save your donuts wait for act 3. The spooky dock is 170 donuts! In my opinion that is too expensive but worth it. I purchased it as soon as it came out!
  • Hmmm...I may reconsider then...

    Yes, adding 4.5% after the fact was great. But if you are looking at if strictly from a multiplier standpoint, 4.5% isnt a lot for the price. 3 jet bikes cost 90 donuts and would bring 6%. That being said the character is unique , so ad a collector I can see the value. But from my point its just too much. To each his own.

  • A fairly good deal now, with that multiplier. Compare a couple of other character/multiplier items:

    Blinky and the Dock - 4.5% (170 donuts)
    Lampwick and Rocket Car - 2% (120 donuts)
    Dupree and the Unfinished Shed - 2.25% (150 donuts)
    Grimes and the Forgotten Grave -3.75% (160 donuts)

    If you factor out the usual 1%/20 donut ratio for the accompanying decoration, the characters cost:
    Blinky - 80 donuts
    Lampwick - 80 donuts
    Dupree - 105 donuts
    Grimes - 85 donuts

    The object that came with Blinky is a dock? I thought it was a swamp. I didn't even look closely at the "building".

    well yes of course the donut to bonus ratio is far from best compared to some of the standalone items/decorations, that is why i said character/building combo. i dont think any other character/building combo comes close to a 4.5% bonus and many combos are similar price or more even without bonus
