    Can you post a pic to show what it looks like. I bought Brandine and the diner so I can no longer afford the whale.

    Here it is :lol:

    Personally I think the whale should come with a free Nelson character that points at you and does the "Ha-ha" chant over and over again.

    EA must have a meeting each morning where the all pinch each other to make sure they're really not dreaming.

    I got one! And I don't regret it at all. I was saving up my donuts for the V-Day update, and that 7% multiplier is hard to resist. Nice that it has an animation and sound effects, too. :D

    I'm a freemium player, but 300 donuts even if I wasn't? No thanks.

    Guilty but no regrets. Couldn't pass it up. 6 months from now, how many posts will there be begging EA to make it available again?

    It's not a "Limited time" item. That said, it's too much. Would get it for 100 donuts but not for 300 donuts.

    Got one, and only one. Vegas calls it's high rollers whales, I think it's an aptly priced luxury item. My only gripe is the damn thing is friggen massive.

    Not me. That's almost $20 for a silly decoration.....not even willing to buy it as a birthday gift for myself today. I'll wait til the next sale :wink:

    Happy Birthday!

    The monetary value puts it in perspective. 300 donuts /$20 is a bit much IMO.

    :thumbdown: :thumbdown: :thumbdown: I would buy the whale if it wasnt for sale at such a ridiculous price. :shock: Its a shame because theyve priced it well out of the market for me. Its absolutely, shamefully crazy. :x Unfortunately I'm on my uppers at the moment and just cant afford it. :cry: I've just spent less than 300 donuts on brandine, the airplane cafe and flower shop - thats 2 buildings AND 4 characters for less than a crazy-looking creature!!! :? The 7% bonus is no incentive at all as my multiplier is enough right now and I also have more than 10million banked. 8) Should be more like 50% for an animal that costs more than any character. How can it be justified to cost more than Kamp Krusty and Bart skin, Barney & Bowlerama, Sideshow Mel & studio, Duffman & Brewery, judge Snyder & courthouse, and other sought-after items with good multipliers. :P

    I'm not sure I'll buy one, but if I DO I don't think I'd consider the multiplier to be a bargain. A BENEFIT, yes! But hardly a bargain, when I can buy 4 Burns Limos for a total of 160 donuts and get a combined 8% multiplier. Or 4 of the Jet Engine bikes for 120 donuts total and get the same (8% combined multiplier)

    But the whale IS special looking! I'm hesitating because I'm still kicking myself for wasting money on my submarine, which I ended up just not liking and stuck it in storage.

    The lunacy of buying it didn't appeal to me until I saw the 7% bonus attached to it, so I spent some of my cheap Xmas donuts for the heck of it. Still have 4100 left. Plus, I just think the idea of it is funny…how it perturbs people is appealing to me. :twisted:

    $20 for a whale!?
    EA is running out of ideas and just getting greedy now.

    For that much money it should at least get beached and you should have a job where the towns folks blow it up, covering the town in blubber like they did with Bluella!
