I've noticed a few species in TDS that have appeared in my album, but it has not unlocked their special characters... I have noticed that once they appear the price to unlock them for Bux goes down to 1 Bux.
Does anyone know if these characters ever unlock on their own, or do you have to unlock them in the store for bux? In other words, is it a special process by which these ? bitizens unlock in addition to the notification of the species unlocking?
As an example: I have had both Mon Calamari, and Admiral Akbar appear in my TDS album, but I was not able to unlock the scene for the Mon Cala Aquarium until I paid the 1 Bux for the Mon Calamari special bitizen.
Here are photos as another example: Look at the Toydarian in both photos, and just to muddy the water some, see that Snowtrooper? I routinely get him as a ? bitizen. Anyone have any idea WTF is going on here?
