Lockwood & Co. ad, more BTS, Props, & P-Con ep. 2

Ready for some spooky action? Halloween is coming at the end of this month, and the new Lockwood & Co. ad on ad streets seems to be in the right spirit (I found it beside the mill in Survival Ep. 5).

Inside the building, once you find the three ghosts (in the rattling teapot to the right, the cracked mirror on the left, and rocking horse at the top) – you’ll win the Skull in a Jar follower, which says “I’m a skull in a jar” in a deep voice when you click on it. Creeeeeepy. 😛

Lockwood Co

By the way, you can also play a little interactive game for Lockwood & Co via this Poptropica page.

(UPDATE: The Creators’ Blog mentioned this little thing in their post about Lockwood – “Not a flamin’ skull, unfortunately, but you can’t have everything.” Could they, perhaps, be talking about the greatest Poptropica band of the days of yore? Hmm. 😉 We were pretty cool, but our glory days are over.)


More behind-the-scenes from Twitter

Poptropica has been on a roll recently on Twitter, and over the past day they’ve released even more awesome behind-the-scenes (BTS) images! For even more BTS pics, see the PHB posts below.

Among the noteworthy are some early concept art for Arabian Nights characters, the frames of an animated sleeping dog for an “upcoming (and spooky)” ad (though not the Lockwood one above), and costumes for three monkeys and Jorge & Oliver from the official Poptropica comic strip.


Props to you, Land owners

Lastly, Poptropica finally rolled out the anticipated furniture feature to Land earlier this week, and they’re calling it Props. Great for making your Land a little more homey! You can read more about it in our Poptropica Land guide, but we hope to update you guys with more specifics soon, so stay tuned. 🙂


PoptropiCon, Ep. 2: description & poster

Thanks to Sneaky Panda for the tip that the description for the second episode of PoptropiCon (titled “Spoiler Alert”) is now up on the official Tour page! Here’s what it says:

The winner of the PoptropiCon costume contest will earn a one-of-a-kind prize. See if you can put together the ultimate villain outfit, but beware — the action at this convention is about to get real!

Looks like noon is approaching, and the cosplay contest is about to begin…

They’ve also added a new printable poster to the Tour page, and it looks pretty cool! You can view and click on it below. (thanks to Slippery Raptor for the tip!)



Of course, the big news of this week is that Arabian Nights Island: Ep. 1 is now out for members, and for non-members, everyone can finally play Survival: Ep. 5! More info and helpful links about that in HPuterpop’s post. 😉 Have a great weekend, Poptropicans!

    Notice the poptropicans in the bottom right? It’s Oliver and Jorge! Did they get stranded on a monkey ruled island? 😮
    Haha, great post as always! c: That ad reminded me of another one, but I can’t remember what it was. Anyone help me out here? 😛

      • Captain Spencer says:

        Oh my! 😮 I’ve managed to read right past it! Yes, I think I was. It could’ve very well been Vampires Curse, Ghost Story, or Haunted House, but I’m not sure. They were very very familiar. Hehe, Silly Juyo. I totally did that on purpose. T-totally. -runs out of the back door- -Juyo turns around while I’m trying to hop the fence- Oh uh, this is embarrassing to both of us. -coughs- Haha, yea I must’ve read past that. Thanks for correcting me! 😛 I’m such a silly goose.

    About the monkey costumes, I think they are actually more connected to the Oliver and Jorge costumes. In the first comic strips the boys were on an island of monkeys and Jorge lost his pants, he has no pants there if you look closely. The Creators may actually be thinking of an island based on the Poptropica comic strip, specifically the first comic strips! That would be awesome. 😀

    I’m glad they added props to Land! If you look in the recent daily pop sneak peeks, you can see a collection of furniture from Survival: Cabin Fever. Will we be able to unlock props from different islands?

  4. Spotted Dragon says:

    Yay! I’ve been waiting for the Land update. Plus, I didn’t notice the new PoptropiCon poster, even though I had found the name of the episode before it got published on the Tour Page. Can’t wait! 😀

    The monkey Poptropican with the pink pigment’s face looks almost EXACTLY like the monkey that showed up in Daily Pop’s Sneak Peeks just a few weeks ago! The Title was “Monkey See”, and the description read, “Hail to the chimp, baby.” They are revisiting the unused concept 2 years later!

What's popping, Poptropicans?
