Should I Spend Pizza? Stephen Hawking

Hello Humans!!!

Head spinning with all the intergalactic trade that’s going on in FWOT? Pizza burning a whole in your pocket whenever a new premium item falls from the skies into our stores?

Yes, the temptation with games like FWOT is just to buy, buy, buy!!! But do this and before you know it you’ll be sitting counting the costs as your Pizza will disappear faster than Fry when there’s work yo be done!!! So we’re here to help you decide what’s worth spending your precious Pizza on,  and what’s not as it’s just plain old space junk. Today we’re going to talk about Stephen Hawking.

  • Will help unlock Bill Nye quicker due to the Honorary Doctorate always dropping every 3hrs

  • He’s amazing!!!


  • 300 Pizza is a lot to pay for a “celebrity” character
  • Character needs to be levelled up to access some tasks but NOT the drop task

Final Thought:

So with the above in mind Would I Buy? Well here’s my thoughts…..

If I were playing Premium: Well if you’ve more Pizza lying around than your local Dominos I’d say you should probably snap him up. He’s pretty amazing for a human being and he has had multiple appearances in Futurama. He’s a great fit as a”celebrity” character. His Honorary Doctorate drop will definitely see you unlock Bill Nye faster as you’ll have all 10 of this otherwise rare drop item in 2 days. Also I just like those floating heads, and this one is in a Space Ship. The geek in me is in heaven.

If I were playing Freemium: I’d save your Pizza as I think 300 Pizza is an awful lot, there are other core Futurama Characters out there to buy and others that have still to appear in the store in the future. Honestly if he were 200 Pizza I’d say go for it but at 300 I know it’s a stretch if your Pizza reserves are low. However he is such a great fit, that even if playing freemium he’s tempting.

Of course, in the end, it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would or wouldn’t do… But whatever you decide, just make sure you make your final decision before he leaves our games for good.

What are your thoughts on Stephen Hawking? Will you be spending Pizza to bring him to New New York? Did you buy him already? If so, why? If no, then why not?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

  1. I had over 500 pizza saved up waiting for Zapp but decided I can probably afford to splash out on Stephen Hawking in the meantime too. Yes it’s a very expensive price but he’s a legend and a scientist, so got him as there aren’t going to be many characters that I’d prefer to have in my game!

    Only slight disappointment is he’s a fast shooter, making it difficult to score critical hits with him in battles… much easier with characters that throw slow projectiles!


  2. I’m still too new a player to have that kind of ‘za to spend so, even though he an awesome person and character, I’m going to have to pass, and hope he’ll return in the future like premium items in TSTO somtimes do.


  3. I bought the guy due to my character completionist tendencies. He’s a great character on the show, so that’s a big bonus! Couldn’t resist
