    All except for the Springfield Sign, Butterfly Tent, and any white fences. Started playing while the Duff Racer was a bonus item, so I'm lucky enough to have all those too.

    :D I think I should have written "I will try to wait until alter the update to buy it due to instability issues", lol! I most likely will build it before the update ends just so I can decorate it, I don't know why I try to kid myself!
    I didn't actually want the volcano lair prior to the update but now I need it lol

    I've got everything, I have to admit, and multiples of lots of it . . .

    The only item I DON'T have right now is the Blue Fonzo. . . I'd shell out the 50 donuts for Blue Funzo .... Hell, I might anyway cause it's kinda killing me a little bit that he is the first item I've ever NOT purchased/earned.
    I see.
    I have all the premium items, as well as, all the premium characters. . . After getting the first Funzo I saw that they come with their own 'Funzo character collection' so I had to get the rest to complete it, it's like an addiction. :lol:
    Bolding the fonts is my idea, but c'mon guys; like an addiction? In denial much, Kennedy? :)

    Have you seen the Volcano Lair done up for the holidays? . . .
    it makes me laugh seeing Hank doing his fun run through the snow bare foot. Tough man!
    I like to see him run even on dry land {pant, pant}, but in the snow barefoot-whew; an Iron man for sure!

    Okay, already, I admit to having everything except the sign and the pink Funzo. The sign is too large for my Springfield now, but I'll probably get it in future.

    I have everything. Once I get my hospital and news station fully set the way I like them, I'm going to buy a couple more ambulances and news vans too, I think multiple ones will look neat.

    I have only ever purchased donuts once..the 60 box or so...and I pretty much spent them all on the premium box...

    All I got really was trees...apple...apple...tree swing..

    I don't see the items worth it really..if it actually gave a cost in pounds or dollars on each item, I think allot would realise the sheer overpriced amounts..

    I mean think about it... It would cost me 10 quid just to get Kang...

    Ten pound to get a character within a game...

    It would cost me over 10 pound just to get the Scorpio lair or whatever it's called...

    You are looking at a quarter of a full priced xbox360/ps3 game cost just for a building withing a ipad game !!!!

    But that's just me..if people want to buy the stuff good for them, I just can't justify spending that much on in game content...

    This game is virtual crack; regular games don't compare to this sort of fix.

    When I first started playing last spring, I swore I would never buy donuts and I didn’t need or want any premium items. Of course the game was so unstable that every time I logged on there was a really good chance that part of my town or several of my characters would have been raptured away. Springfield 1 is all but a memory now, but Springfield 2: Electric Boogaloo is going strong.
    Oh my! That is gold! Raptured away and Springfield 2: Electric Boogaloo both made me laugh hard. Bravo.

    Thanks for appreciating the joke. You just completely made my day, you have no idea. I have spent the last 10 hours in meetings that made me believe my ability to covey humor was dying…along with small pieces of my soul.

    The irony in the rapture (The Rapture?) was that Apu and Krusty were raptured and Flanders was not. It gave me a moment of pause.

    I agree that Kearney is probably my most disappointing purchase so far, but I don’t regret any premium purchases, with the exception of a couple of Homer Buddhas. I had seen people post pictures of him dancing the jig and I thought it was awesome. Then I scrolled through his full list of tasks and they make me, well, just sad.

    You can compare that same logic to any gourmet or luxury item. Getting what you want feels good, no matter the price. It's all about that rush of endorphins.

    I've been playing since it was rereleased in the summer, but didn't spring for donuts until the Christmas update (well, maybe $5?). I used the few donuts you get here and there for some small things, most of the decorations are from the Mystery Box. I have to admit, now that I've given in and started to buy donuts I'm really bummed I didn't get some of the Halloween items. I love visiting towns with Kang and the laser!

    Anyhoo, I've got:

    Green dumpsters
    Flower planters (two ugly flower planters from my only two Homer Buddhas, ugh)
    Tree Swing
    Burning Bush (from a land expansion)
    Orange tree
    Lemon tree
    Hans Moleman
    Squeaky Voice Teen
    Purple Funzo (not gonna get the others, they do nothing and the purple one is underwhelming)
    Aztec Theater (recent buy)
    Volcano Lair (recent buy) - BEST THING EVER. The reason I bought $20 worth of donuts and it convinced me to get more premium items, haha. Damn you, EA.

    On my wishlist is Dr. Nick, the Springfield sign, Frink's Lab, and Krustylu Studios (not excited by the building but Sideshow Mel!!), also a reindeer because they're cute! And when it's green again I might get a few more fruit trees, they really add some nice color to the town. Hoping for the visit from Gil...if that's on again?

    I have all of them. I received a 200 dollar iTunes card and used it all on Simpsons stuff since I don't need it for anything else. Love this game.

    My first purchase was for Squeaky Voiced Teen and Aztec Theater. I then got Hans Moleman and the Duff Brewery. Saving my current donuts for...? Still hoping to get Lard Lad in a mystery box.

    I'm hoping for iTunes gift cards for Christmas. It is hard personally for me to justify spending money on the premium items no matter how much I would like them and am jealous of other people's awesome stuff. But gift card money is a whole other story. Sad, I know. For now I have a fruit tree, the lemon tree, and a mess of white fences from mystery boxes.

    I dont have much, most of what I buy premium content wise is due to the fact that it is limited edition such as the Mausoleum during Halloween, all of the balloons during Thanksgiving and Santa's Village during Christmas (though not at all interested in buying the reindeer even if it is limited premium) I do plan to buy the regular premium content if I get an iTunes card for Christmas (I usually do and since I dont really listen to American music all that much (Asian pop fan right here! And no not Psy! LOL!), this is generally the only way I can really put them to good use!)
