Family Guy Facts: Although the movie, Silence of the Lambs, is often referenced in the show, Hannibal Lecter does not ever appear in person.
- Iconic horror character
- Has 8hr task to always drop 1x Chainsaw
- If put on drop task continually you could get up 3 Chainsaws every 24 hours
- Will help you unlock Axeman Peter & Buffalo Bill quicker due to the extra Chainsaw you will earn every 8hrs
- 2 animated tasks
- He’s voiced!!!
- Fully tasked with Questline
- He’s a great cook
- Character needs to be levelled up to access some tasks but NOT the drop task
- Chainsaws dropped don’t count towards total needed to complete Off The Chainsaw Achievement Task parts.
- Animated tasks are a little tame considering it’s Hannibal Lecter
Premium vs Freemium Thought: So with the above in mind Would I Buy? Well here’s my thoughts…..
If playing Premium: Well if you’ve more Clams lying around than your local beach has sand, I’d say you should snap him up immediately. Likewise if you’re a horror movie buff, as he’s one of the most iconic and enigmatic horror characters ever. And scary as hell to boot. His Chainsaw drop will definitely see you clear more Zombies and therefore unlock Axeman Peter & Buffalo Bill faster.
If playing Freemium: I’d spend some of your precious Clams for all the reasons I said above. I know 260 Clams is a lot but I think he’s a must have if you’re a Halloween freak. I know it’s just the first week of a 5 week event but who does Cannibalism better and those Chainsaws will come in handy. But if your freemium I understand if you would have wanted a bit more for your clams, such as ability to clear Zombie Monkeys.
My Personal Opinion: I bought him immediately. Even without those Chainsaw drops I’d have snapped him up, he will make a fine addition to my collection of horror characters, although if any of them start to disappear I’ll know Hannibal’s been at the Chianti again. But seriously he’s a horror legend, he’s got a helpful drop and he’s under 300 clams. That works for me. My only disappointment is his animated tasks could have been much more flamboyant but they are still amusing, so I’m maybe just picking over the bones here. His voice isn’t quite as chilling as I’d have hoped but the phrases made me chuckle. Overall I’m very happy with my purchase.
Of course, in the end, it’s your decision. Just remember though with it being part of a Limited Time Event make sure you make up your mind soon as once the event is over it is most likely they will be gone. In the end it’s your call as obviously what 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, what we think, and why. But don’t purchase it until YOU are sure because ALL SALES ARE FINAL!
What are your thoughts on Hannibal Lecter? Will you be spending Clams to bring his unique take on fine dining to Quahog? Did you buy him already? If so, why? If not, then why not? Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!
