Do I Want That? Flash God, Mongo Sword Display & Flash Gordon Statue

So you think you’re as rich at Carter Pewterschmidt? Own a fancy house like Buzz Killington? You sure gotta lot of clams there, whatcha gonna do with them?

BUY LOTS OF STUFF OF COURSE!!!

Clams

Now hold on there a minute. Are you SURE you want that? With all these cool Guys In Black  limited time event items in the game, it is very easy to get carried away. Before you know it, Clamshell Shock! All gone!

So before you go ahead and buy to your heart’s content and your wallets empty, here’s a few things you might want to know about Flash God, the Mongo Sword Display and the Flash Gordon Statue.


FLASH GOD

Character/Costume: Costume (however if you don’t already have the God character you will get him as well as the Flash God Costume for the same cost as just the Costume)
Clam Cost: 250 Clam IconClams
Unique: Yes
Drops: 1x MIB Handcuffs every 3 hours
Size: N/A
Other Info: Can fight all baddies available in Phase 3
Fight Stats: Health 4, Hit Power 6, Knockout Chance 20%, Heals 3 hours

PROS:

  • A New Full Character & Costume if you don’t have God
  • 3hr Task to always drop 1x MIB Handcuffs
  • Can Fight Ballchinians, Weasels & Space Bats
  • Can Fight Ming The Merciless
  • 2  funny permanent Animated Tasks
  • Fully tasked with Questline

CONS: 

  • Frakkin 250 CLAMS!!!
  • Same clam cost for costume on its own as for those who also get God
  • Reliant on other drops to be able to fight Baddies
  • Low Health and Attack Power for a premium buy
  • Won’t be useful after the Event

Math of It:
With regards the MIB Handcuffs, well it’s simple, putting him repeatedly on the 3hr Imprison Evil task in between fights will see you able to collect on this task up to a maximum of 8 times a day. So that’s up to 8 MIB Handcuffs a day you can grab, and that’s a potential 48 MIB Handcuffs over the 6 days left of this Phase. Over the duration of the event you can get a possible 104 MIB Handcuffs, although how useful they will be in the final phase to come is anyone’s guess!

Final Thought:
It’s a new character costume, or if you don’t have God you’re getting a better value bundle. Yes the clam cost is a way too pricey for those of us who have God, we shouldn’t be paying the same 250 clams for just the costume as other players are to get a character and costume. That’s unfair to long-term players, and something TinyCo need to think about in future. 150 clams for the costume would have been fairer as the costume is gun, nd does come with a couple funny animated tasks,, but his usefulness lies in his MIB Handcuff drop and Fight abilities, so I know most will base their purchase decision on this rather than his ongoing tasks after the event. If you’ve not got God this is a good buy, but for just the costume think on it carefully.

Of course in the end it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would or wouldn’t do…and I can tell you, I bought him, but the more I think about the fact I only get a costume whilst others get a character and costume for the same price, I’m thinking I shouldn’t have.  I’m also wondering if I’ve made the right decision with the ability to use him on Fights reliant on drops of Arrest Warrants and his poor health, especially as his 4 healthy nd 6 attack power  isn’t going make much impact on Ming the Merciless and his 48 health. Flash God really should have been a much higher health fighter. Disappointed all round, sometimes it just doesn’t pay to play premium,


MONGO SWORD DISPLAY

Building/Decoration: Decoration
Clam Cost: 165 Clam IconClams
Unique: Yes
Drops: 1x Mongo Sword & 4x Leather Short Shorts every 18 hours
Earns: $20 & 40xp
Size: 2×2
Other Info: Animated

PROS:

  • Always drops 1x Mongo Sword every 18 hours
  • Always drops 4x Leather Short Shorts every 18 hours
  • Will help you greatly towards getting Hawkman Chris costume quickly and of course unlocking Flash Gordon before his 7 day timer expires

CONS:

  • Won’t be useful after the Event

Math of It:
With regards the Mongo Swords, well it’s simple, you’ll be able to collect from this up to a maximum of 1 times a day. So that’s up to 1 Mongo Sword a day you can grab, and with this alone you’d collect all the Mongo Swords you need for Flash Gordon within 7 days.

With regards the Leather Short Shorts, well it’s similar but figures are higher as you get 4 each drop, you’ll be able to collect from this up to a maximum of 1 times a day. So that’s up to 4 Leather Short Shorts a day you can grab, however with this alone you won’t collect all the Leather Short Shorts needed during this Phase but combined with the other ways to get them this will be a very good help towards getting him unlocked quicker.

Final Thought
It’s a new decoration. Yes the clam cost is a rather excessive, but it’s got its plus side,and that’s the Leather Short Shorts drop for the Hawkman Chris costume, as you need 52 of these, so they will take time to gather freemium. I don’t know that the Mongo Swords for Flash Gordon will be an issue being an always drop from Space Bats.

Personally I’ve not bought it, and that’s because I rarely buy decorations, and also because I think I can unlock both via the freemium drops, having Flash God will help me with the Space Bats, so I’ll stop at that premium buy for now.


FLASH GORDON STATUE

Building/Decoration: Decoration
Clam Cost: 250 Clam IconClams
Unique: Yes
Drops: 6x Power Rings every 10 hours
Earns: $20 & 35xp
Size: 3×3
Other Info: Animated

PROS:

  • A New very cool looking decoration
  • Drops 6x Power Rings every 10 hours

CONS:

  • Frakkin 250 CLAMS!!!
  • Won’t be useful after the Event

Math of It:
With regards the Power Rings, well  you can collect on this task up to a maximum of 2 times a day. So that’s up to 12 Power Rings a day you can grab, and over what’s left of this Phase alone that’s a potential minimum of 72 Power Rings. And over the duration of the event you can get up to a maximum 84 Power Rings.  Now with the exchanges probably changing next phase again they won’t be the main exchange item but they usually are still used to a lesser extent.

Final Thought
It’s a decoration, yes it’s a nice, flashy, I mean shiny one but 250 Clams for it? No chance, it’s way too costly in my opinion, only for those with a lot of clams they really want rid of. And that’s not me, as you know I count my clams like Scrooge every night.

Of course in the end once again it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would or wouldn’t do…and as I said I’m not going to be the splashing the cash on this bit of flash.


So there you have it the facts & figures and my personal thoughts on this Phase’s premium buys. Just remember though with it being part of a Limited Time Event, just make sure you make up your mind as once the event is over it is most likely they will be gone. In the end it’s your call as obviously hat you buy and what you don’t buy is your own personal choice we can only share our thoughts and let you know what we did and what we think, and why.  But don’t purchase it until YOU are sure. ALL SALES ARE FINAL!

  1. Seemed to just be iOS issue… logged in via android first time, which then seemed to clear the iOS issue….

  2. Tough to hear that your premium purchase did not yield great satisfaction especially when it costs so much clams per item these days! Thanks for the post though, as I’d have thought Flash God is a new character when I already have him. Went to the Harrington and true enough, his costume is available for sale. Perhaps we should all check through Harrington in future to confirm we are not buying costumes.
