Which premium characters do you think are the best?

As you guys know the premium characters all have beneficial things to them such as helping out in resources from the Springfield Heights section for example, however so many characters there have good things with them I was wondering which premium characters you thought were the best for the best value.

For example, Sherri & Terri collect 200% more resources and are only 150 donuts where as Jimbo is 120 donuts and only collects 50% more money & XP, so for the sake of 30 donuts you've got a much better deal with Sherri & Terri which actually seem quite a good deal.

To be honest I think the costs of donuts to buy is way too much for what you get, I'm not sure how many people here have actually purchased donuts but, it's mad lol You get like 300 donuts for £20 which is about two characters which is nuts lol

So obviously we tend to spend our donuts wisely and was wondering what you guys thought were the most beneficial premium characters that you've purchased from the game?

    I chuckle every time I see him, this is VERY beneficial to me.

    If you haven't purchased Mystery Boxes until you open ones with Squeeky Voiced Teen and the Blue Haired lawyer I'd suggest that. Buying them with mystery boxes turns out to be cheaper than just buying them outright, it will also help your multiplier which will eventually make characters cheaper for you (through farming donuts).
    Roscoe with the Ajax Steel Mill is a limited time premium character that you should watch out for then buy (hold off on doing any of his quests until you find out why, or it's a waste) ;)
    Also if you play or can load your game on a iOS(apple) they often have deals on iTunes gift cards, so you can get a little discount on buying donuts with real money that way.

    In the end it's up to you really which premium characters you want.

    For starters, Terri and Sherri. One of the best in game duos, if they're every available to be used in an event, they'll be quite valuable.

    Second, vegan protestor, Jesse grass. Once event only, now anyone can get him, tasks in all recycling depots, integral to any monorail owner.

    Dr. Nick. Why?

    Hi Dr Nick.

    T&S almost ALWAYS involved in the Halloween&Christmas events too >:)o:)
  • Oooo Sherri and Terri especially when I think I got them in a mystery box.
  • Thanks guys, such a great insight. I appreciate that :)
  • Premium characters fall into 3 categories for me.
    1) Characters you like. There are some characters you're just fond of regardless of cost or utility. They differ from player to player but there are certain characters people have to have in their Springfield. The value of the premium character in this instance is completely personal.

    2) Useful characters. Some premium characters earn extra $ and XP on top of their premium status (like Sherri & Terri or The Wiccans), help with Springfield Heights (like Sideshow Mel & Moleman), or help with the rail yard for track pieces and donuts (like Jesse Grass, the Hippie, Dewey Largo, Uter, etc.).

    3) Characters with multiplier items. Some characters come with decorations (and more recently buildings as well) that include a bonus percentage for your multiplier. Permanent premium characters like Chester Lampwick, Chester Dupree, & Frank Grimes all come with such decorations. Limited time characters like George Washington and Dwight D. Eisenhower also come with such decorations. More recently, Tapped Out has been releasing limited time characters with buildings that earn money & XP and also have a bonus percentage for your multiplier like Jaques and Senor DingDong.

    I personally gravitate toward category 2 & 3 and only splurge on category 1 if there's a rebate.

    Vegas Wives ; The Wiccans ; patches & violet (who were too poor to afford the capitalization of their names, 'twould seem) ; (the overperformers)

    Witch marge , fast food protester , (useful)

    Premium skin upgrades i get a kick out of are Kungfu Comicbookguy, ballet ralph, devil flanders, vampire burns, fat homer.

    If you play one hour tasks, Stuart of the Disco rolling around the streets super fast will never get old.

    Lots of other big name characters are sort of letdowns like duffman who just changes where he humps and like Cat lady is a one trick pony, and i'm very upset deep down in my soul for how frink 's potential is going to waste in this game.
