Snapshot Series, Sneak Peeks

‘Wheel’ now know about the next book.

Hey guys. 🙂 (update: see below for “Photastic” post!)

The Creators have posted the cover of the next Wimpy Kid book. Here it is…

The third wheel? I didn’t even know that we had two to start with!

From what I’ve heard from the news (Jeff Kinney was at a childrens books writers’ expo in Sydney, NSW, Australia) it’s basically about Greg trying to find a date to the valentines day dance. My guess is, he’ll say that he’s got a great chance of going with Holly Hills or something, but he’ll end up just going with his best friend, Rowley.

GB.

*flies away into clouds*

EDIT (Hijuyo):

We’ve recently heard from a PHB reader, Lucas, that his Poptropican jaramillo14 (Lone Heart) is the one featured in the PCB’s “Photastic” post. Congratulations, Lone Heart, for earning all 109 photos currently available in Poptropica’s photo album! Hard work does pay off. 🙂

How many photos have YOU earned on Poptropica Friends? Do you have more or less than your friends? Let us know in the comments below!

SHARK BOY

Well, good luck to you members. The non-members can play a demo, if they wish. The only event that you can play is shot put.
(BTW, I’m loving the way that the island rises out of the ocean on the map! Awesome!)
 
Time for post two.
 
 

Congratulations to the first 10 finishers of Poptropolis Games!

BINARY BARD

The binary code at the end of the post translates to ‘go for the gold’. Which is reasonable, seeing as how if you don’t win you tribe will go through ULTIMATE SHAME AND DISHONOR. Or words to that effect. 😉

Guess who?

 

This is a tough one!

CAPTAIN CRAWFISH

Oh, gee. I have no idea! Who could this mystery person possibly be? Santa Claus? Buzz Lightyear? Dracula?
 
Hmmmmmmm.
 
Wait a minute, that body shape, those three hairs, that nose!
 
It’s… it’s…
 
 
 
 
 
 
Barack Obama!
 
 
Lol jks, it’s Greg Heffley. From the Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Written by Jeff Kinney. The creator of poptropica. Diary of a Wimpy Kid? You know, the bestselling series that was likely to be named the most popular childrens series since Harry Potter and then sold about half a million more copies of books than Harry Potter?
 
You may have heard of it.
 
 
GB out. Cya!

Choosing your tribe
By Green Boa
 
Choosing your tribe is no small task,
Make your descion, at your own rask
 (risk 😛 )
 
Will you be Wildfire, burning alight?
45%, believe this is right.
 (From the poll on the PCB 😆 )
 
Will you be Nightcrawlers, who are often baited?
I must warn you, my friends, they aren’t highly rated. (Only 7%!)
 
Will you join Pathfinders, and follow their map?
Or will your navigations lead you into a trap?
 
Will you choose Nanobots, with tech to astound?
No other robots, are there around.
(I mean, they were underwater!)
 
Or perhaps, you will go, with Flying Squid!
Their chances of winning are worth a fair bid.
(More than an inkling, remember?)
 
Or Yellowjackets, like wasps they are fierce.
Their balloon of bad luck, they are looking to pierce.
(Which will make it go POP and it will fly into tiny pieces!)
 
Or Seraphim, perhaps, they’re up to the test.
According to us, they are second best.
(16% on the PCB poll!)
 
Or maybe, finally, last but not least,
Black Flags, is the tribe, with which you will feast.
(On victory, perhaps?)
 
 
That’s all from me. Bye!

Poptropolis Games Island, Tribes

These Tribes have got vibe.

The poptropica creators have released some of the tribal symbols that will be on Poptropilis island. Take a look!

The tribes of Poptropica

 
Choosing your tribe in Poptropolis Games is no small decision. You’ll fly your tribe’s colors both in the game, and on your personality profile. Here’s your first look at a few of the tribal logos.

Pretty nice, eh? That’s only half of them. There are still four more to be revealed!

Over the next several week we’ll be bringing you even more information about Poptropolis Games, including all of the tribal names and icons!

Those are pretty awesome looking. I wonder if you restart the island that you can change your tribe.
 
GTG dinner calling!
 
*turns into the incredible hulk (RAAAWWR!!) and crashes through the wall, and runs off*

Poptropolis Games Island

Friends, statues, fires and babies.

Where would you find all this in a blog post? Well, in the PHB, of course! 😉

In the real world, the olympic flame was recently lit in Greece. Looks like something similar is about to happen in the Poptropilis Games.

Is this burning an eternal flame?

 

Well, probably not. It’s hard for a flame to burn at the bottom of the ocean. But when the city of Poptropolis re-surfaces every 100 years, the ceremonial torch burns for as long as the competitive fires do!

CAPTAIN CRAWFISH

Hey, I just realized something. How do the citizens of Poptropilis BREATH underwater? I mean, even I can hold my breath underwater for 2-3 minutes, but 100 years, might be a bit of a stretch.
 
Time for the next PCB post.

What, I’m not cool enough?

Well, I’ve had enough. Us creators can see who have friended us, even though you can’t see everyone who has friended you. But listen, I’ve been looking at the other creators’ pages. Binary Bard has 2,534 friends, Black Widow has 3,083 friends, and even that total NERD Ned Noodlehead has 1,874 friends. But me?

I have 19. NINETEEN!

What? You don’t like me? The eye-patch intimidating you? Still angry that I tried to rob and loot and steal from all those islands? That wasn’t personal or anything, you know!

Well, I quit. Bye!

It wasn’t nice not being your friend. :’-(

CAPTAIN CRAWFISH

Oh well. CC gone. The one we used to love nomming so much.

 

*tries to hold back laughter*

Haha! I’m KIDDING! CC isn’t leaving. I faked that post.

This one is the real one… or is it?

These friends of mine

 
I’ve been having a blast making new friends on Poptropica. I wanted to introduce you to a cool person I’m following

Tiny Crush has an awesome outfit, has never cheated on a test, and has completed 25 Poptropica Islands! (Not Vampire’s Curse, though — what’s up with that?)

It’s great to know Tiny Crush, and I’m looking forward to seeing what else he gets up to in Poptropica. Maybe you can meet Tiny Crush, or even the Poptropica Creators, by visiting the common rooms on Poptropica. No matter who is there, we guarantee you’ll be making some new friends!

CAPTAIN CRAWFISH

Uh, yes. It is the real one. Some more info we can see about Tiny Crush is his favourite ice cream flavour is Cookies ‘n’ Cream (same as CC!), he does some sort of karate, he hasn’t been bitten by a dog, something about hair, his fav kind of ball is a soccer ball and something similar to Director D. Hmmm.
 
Anyway, I’d better hurry up and finish up this post. One more 100% genuine post from the PCB.

New in the Poptropica Store

 
We have a few new things to share this week in the Poptropica Store. First, Poptropica Members can now get their exclusive Poptropolis Games gear!

These Member-only items include a snazzy Wrestling Singlet costume, a handheld Discus that you can throw around the screen, and the incredible Plant-a-Statue power, which lets you bring a little bit of the Poptropolis Games to any Island in Poptropica.

But that’s not all! There’s also a new costume in the store, available to everyone with Membership or credits.

Now, if somebody calls you a big baby, you can tell them they’re right, and throw a fit to prove it.

Enjoy!

BLACK WIDOW

Uhhhhh, what? Who agrees that these baby costumes are the worst ones in the store? All they do is cry and shake their rattles. Seriously people, don’t waste your credits on these costumes. However the members only items look pretty cool.
 
Cya people! *turns into Iron Man and flies away*
 
(BTW, I can’t wait to see the new Avengers movie!)
