Hey, guys! It’s time to leggo of our worries and gift ourselves with the knowledge of new updates. I promise you won’t feel dead after hearing about these!!! 😀 (I’ll see myself out… just kidding.)
The Creators have been busy updating Poptropica with new features and perks for all players. For example, Home Island was given a complete redesign less than two weeks ago, and the Blast-Off Arcade was accidentally released a mere two days ago! And now:
Lego Island has officially been released on Poptropica Original!
It’s been almost nine months since the previous island, Greek Sea Odyssey, was released to players on Poptropica Worlds. Now, for the first time in forever, a new island has appeared, and on Poptropica Original nonetheless. We showed you unofficial sneak peeks before, and now you can access Lego Island from the map on Pop Original.
At this point, Lego Island consists of a Main Street scene containing three ads, each advertising a different Lego product. The three ads that are currently on Lego Island are for LEGO Boost, LEGO Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu, and LEGO Friends. The ads for Boost and Ninjago have already appeared before on Poptropica Original.
On the far right, you will find the ad for LEGO Boost. All you need to do is watch the video to get a Robot Cat Follower.
The ad to the right is for the LEGO Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu series. Go inside and talk to Zane to start the mini-game. Repeatedly click your mouse to jump over the obstacles on the ground, and release to avoid the ones from above.
After completing the mini-game, you will win two awesome prizes: a Shadow Ninja costume and a Dragon Follower!
The ad on the far right is for LEGO Friends. Enter the building and talk to Stephanie to start the mini-game, which is a scavenger hunt. Your goal is to find the eleven items on your checklist.
After finding all eleven items, you will receive two items of your own: a Wind Surfboard and a Wave Runner.
These are the only ads on Lego Island at the moment. A recent post on the Creators’ Blog encouraged fans to check the island often as new items are added. It’s likely that more ads will appear and replace already existing ads on the island as updates come and go. If you’re paid member, you get to keep your prizes even after the ad campaigns end.
Speaking of paid members, a new trio of member gifts have arrived just in time for November! As always, members will automatically receive these gifts upon logging into Poptropica Original. This month, members will receive a Wolf Costume, and Sheep Costume, and a Scarecrow Costume.
One thing I want to mention is that these costumes are accessed through the Costumizer. This time, members can pick and choose what pieces of the costume they want to wear, as opposed to the whole costume being put onto the player. (Don’t worry, non-members. You can get the Wolf Costume by using this ASG. 😉 )
Last but not least, the Creators’ Blog celebrated Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) with a celebratory post on November 2. The post contained a brief description of the Mexican holiday along with its origins and traditions.
If you like the costumes shown in the picture, you can get them for free in the store. The girls’ costume was designed by our very own Lucky Joker, the winner of Poptropica’s Halloween costume design contest! Be sure to get these costumes before the next store update comes and takes them away to the afterlife…
Thank you for reading, and have a good day!
