Yeah, it can be difficult to work out. Personally, I’m going for option 2, but I have a low appetite for risk with my coins, and the gains from a single OP toon are not that huge in my position.
Forgot to add: the box where you get collectibles for four different toons in random amounts for lots of coin (7500+) seems like terrible value. Even is the expected value seems acceptable (like the current one, expected 400 for Hengy, Raulito, Aarav, Guo each for 9999 coin, significantly more expensive than the Aarav/Guo combo offer but still 3.2k expected for ~20k coins, roughly similar to the aove) it’s high variance (you can low-roll and only get 400 in total) and very spread out so the immediate benefit is going to be very low. Avoid this one, and the one that has 4k as the top amount is even worse.
