You “boa”, Sporty Boa!

LOL geddit? (I’ll stop with the stupid puns now, I’m sure you wouldn’t be a great “sport” about them. ZING! *cough cough*)

Poptropica Superstars: Sporty Boa

Introducing our last Poptropica Superstar for the week: Sporty Boa!

Sporty Boa is a longtime Poptropica Member who was among the first to finish Shrink Ray Island. She’s also an expert Star Link player, with a lifetime record of 29 wins and only 2 losses! You might want to think twice before accepting that challenge in a common room.

Congratulations, Sporty Boa, on being today’s Poptropica Superstar!

We’ll be sure to feature more Poptropica Superstars in the future, so keep an eye out. The next Poptropica Superstar could be you!

Congrats, Sporty Boa– and wow, not only was she one of the first to finish the newest island, she’s a pro at Star Link. Only 2 losses! I’d keep my eyes peeled out, and better not accept any Star Link challenges any time soon! πŸ˜‰

Keep Poptropica’n, ’cause you could be the next Poptropica Superstar!

See you guys, better boa. (Readers: AGH! :x)

Silly rabbit, Trix and a Cool Kid’s meal is for kid– oh, wait, right.

For those who don’t know, redeeming the above codes is a bit like buying a membership or game cards.

First, enter you username and password.
Next, verify your Poptropican and enter your code.

And, I am assuming, voila! Easy, right? πŸ˜€

Enjoy your “in-game prize”~ you get a “Happy Star” costume and “Star Power”! ^^ Thanks to a comment from PHB reader Aang who revealed that the secret code is coolkids11. Enter it while you can! πŸ™‚

Silly Dr Hare, we promise not to overthrow you.

Ello dears, ’tis Lady RCG from merry old England.

Ever since that hooligan Wolfgang *ducks objects thrown by rabid PWH and Wolfgang fans* sent me here, I’ve been stuck in this place. I suppose that’s an excuse *cough* as to why I haven’t been posting.

Not that I need an excuse, right? Everyone loves me!

Okay, okay. Meanies. On to the update.

Dr. Hare’s impostor revealed!

At last, I have discovered the identity of the counterfeit Dr. Hare. Unfortunately, the truth is worse than I had feared.

Anyone who gets the Dr. Hare 6″ figure will also receive a secret code that will allow them to costumize Dr. Hare for the first time ever. That means that anyone could be disguised as Dr. Hare! There will be Dr. Hares all over Poptropica!

Oh, this won’t do. This won’t do at all.

Ah, an ad showing off the new Dr. Hare figurine. I see what you did thar, creators.


LOLJK Creators. We love it when you post random advertisement updates.

Pft, too bad the Dr. Hare cheat is no longer effective ( πŸ˜₯ ).

Wha– what? Oh, right, we have to buy those action figurine-thingies.

As explained in elmopwn’s post, these figurines are little toys that come with codes. As you redeem them, prizes come with them– such as the Dr. Hare costume we shall all be using to tear down the real Dr. Hare with.

Eh? I didn’t say that.

~RCG is off to scheme…

Red Dragon Island, Sneak Peeks

Coming soon, Red Dragon Island!

Announcing the next Poptropica Island!

You’ve seen the Sneak Peeks. You’ve watched the teaser trailer. And now we can reveal for the first time that the next Poptropica Island is…

Red Dragon Island! And it’s brought to you with the help of our friends at Magic Tree House. Prepare for an epic journey to ancient Japan!

We’ll have much more information about Red Dragon Island in the days to come. In the meantime, you can visit the travelmap on Poptropica right now to access the special sneak preview of Red Dragon Island — a Sumo wrestling tournament!

Enjoy!

Well, looks like I was wrong, it has nothing to do with red turtles– in fact, it’s something even cooler.

Dragons!

After speculating about the video that was posted by the Creators, the secret has in fact, been revealed. It’s been confirmed– the new island, Red Dragon Island, is possibly based on the book “Dragon of the Red Dawn” part of the Magic Tree House series, by Mary Pope Osbourne.

A man stood to the side and told a story to the audience.

“What’s he saying?” said Annie.

“He is telling the legend of the Cloud Dragon,” said Basho. “The Cloud Dragon is one of the guardian animals of the four directions. She has the power of flight and commands the rain clouds.”

~Basho being a smart alec, Mary Pope Osbourne

Heh heh... *breathes out smoke*

Don’t forget to check out the sneak preview! Fat guys Sumo wrestlers. Fun!

(Don’t make fun though, looks like you’ve gained some pounds too.)

Better start working out. And what better way than a little sumo wrestling?

Here you’ll have to beat another sumo wrestler. Several, actually! Talk to the ref standing by the platform to get started.

Prepare for impact! Push or be pushed!

You’ll have to go through 20 rounds, 4 ranks, beating several people, to get each costume. (Well, at least if you’re a member. -__-)

Here’s the Maegashira costume, the first rank:

Just one? 😦 *sigh* Lucky members.

Good luck!

The wrestler ranks are:

  1. Juryo (starter)
  2. Maegashira (highest for non-members)
  3. Sanyaku
  4. Ozeki
  5. Yokozuna (highest for members)
Here’s Juyo’s character as a heavy Maegashira! (Interesting how the starter rank is called ‘Juryo,’ almost like Juyo!)

Just for fun: Did you know that Red Dragon is also a possible Poptropica player name? Now isn’t that cool. πŸ™‚

Bonus Items, Membership, Uncategorized, Wimpy Wonderland Island

Looks more like a mummy to me…

ATTENTION! EDIT! UPDATE! BLAH!

Wimpy Kid Island is now OPEN to EVERYONE! That’s right, you heard me! Early Access is now for EVERYONEEEE! Even you, over there!

Wednesday, March 16, 2011

Your daily paper

Poptropica Members don’t just get Early Access to Wimpy Wonderland. They also a get a free bonus item!

Any Members who play Wimpy Wonderland during the Early Access period will get the special Paper Girl or Paper Boy costume and ability.

With the costume, you can turn yourself into a lined paper wonder, right out of the Wimpy Kid universe!

Even better, you can paperize anybody else you see anywhere in Poptropica — even Director D.!


So, Members, log on now to play Wimpy Wonderland and get your free Paper Girl or Paper Boy Gold Card. If you’re not a Member, you can become a Member and get the Card along with Early Access to Wimpy Wonderland. (And keep in mind that this Card will live in your store items inventory section.)

You’ll be able to keep this Card forever, even if you cancel Membership later, but once the Early Access period is over, the Card will be gone. Don’t miss your chance!

If you’re a member, you’re in luck– you get to get a suspiciously mummy looking paper costume, not to mention you get to change various characters around Poptropica into paper. Fun, right?

Now, since WW is supposed to be released around the middle of March, if you think turning cartoon people into paper is just uber fun, you better hurry and get a membership, before your chance has been crumpled up! (see what I did there? HUR HUR HUR HURRR…hur…ha…yeah…)

Also, congratulations to the first 10 people to finish Wimpy Wonderland!

1. Lone Dragon
2. Greedy Runner
3. Quick Skull
4. Strange Octopus
5. Popular Crush
6. Wild Ghost
7. Bashful Moon
8. Mad Leaf
9. Big Spinner

10. Messy Eel

Here’s the PHB info page for WW! There is a written walkthrough by Fearless Cheetah in the comments!

Oh, and Happy St. Patricks Day!
