Ack! The Baron Goes Missing ๐Ÿ™ˆ

Brace yourselves for a Baron airship landing, Poptropicans! But…

Right away, you may notice something’s not right โ€” the Baron is nowhere to be seen! Not at the entrance calling you off the dusty rock, nor swinging at their usual spot on the flight deck. What’s up?

Head inside the Cabin of Curiosities and you’ll find treasures to pick up, including two free costumes: The Hair by Prickly Tooth, which is the latest design contest winner, and the Banana over on the right! ๐ŸŒ

UPDATE: The submissions reel from July can now be viewed below, and August’s costume contest has kicked off! Enter by Friday, August 26 at 8pm PST for your chance to have your design in the game. More details on the Creators’ Blog!

Back in the cabin, you can also bring home some familiar wares: the Baron and Ack Paintingย (300 credits),ย Ack Plushieย (200),ย Ackโ€™s Litter Boxย (5),ย Wooden Mugย (10),ย Chest of Scrollsย (100) โ€” lifted from the Baron’s headquarters, now curiously locked. Is the legendary sky pirate quarantining inside?

Baron backers may remember their last visit when the Baron was twitching suspiciously and offering Rumpelstiltskin icons for sale. This time, their first mate Ack has taken over the throne! Talking to the monkey doesn’t offer any helpful hints, as all he can say is “Ack,” but the doodles he’s waving of his boss and the magic man may be a clue. Was the Baron kidnapped by Rumpel, or are they in cahoots? Hmmm…

In other news, guest writer Dizzy Feather is back on the Pop Creators’ Blog with part two of her fanfic story, Poptropican Heroes. (You can read part one here!) There’s also a call to participate at the end for a chance to have your character featured in her future writing, as previously seen here on the PHB with another fanfic of hers, The Pink Knight!

Speaking of Dizzy Feather’s work, you’re invited for a bit of guessing fun in her latest PHB post, Pop Puzzles: What’s Missing? โ€” and for more from this budding creative, check out Dizzy Feather’s Poptropica Blog!

Finally, take some time to enjoy the latest fan art features from Pop’s Instagram stories, including the conclusion of one fan artist’s island-based comics! You can catch up on this amazing series featuring scenes from classic islands @krazytalez on IG, including last week’s segment on the showdown with Mademoiselle Moreau from Mystery Train. Plus, enjoy the rest in full by clicking on the artists’ names below! โœจ

Cloaked in Mischief: Baron’s Rumpel Return

Hey, Poptropicans! Be on your guard, a suspicious sight has shown up…

The Red Baron has returned, but she seems a bit off this time. Her visible eye is twitching, which she claims is caused by the thrill of adventure.

Her Cabin of Curiosities is chock full of Rumpelstiltskin-branded… things. You’ll find gold statues, a lamp, plushies (including a cursed version of Amelia’s unicorn), and even a Rumpel-fied Dr. Hare costume.

Okay, Baron, what’s with all of this? You deny that something is amiss, and you’re suddenly a big fan of Rumplestiltskin. Look, we know you’re not the most morally upright person, but vouching for Rumpelstiltskin is insane! And why does Ack keep missing his shots, throwing grapes at your convulsing eye? Something’s definitely up. ๐Ÿ‘โšซ๏ธ

At least one thing hasn’t been corrupted by Rumpel’s influence: June’s winning costume, the stellar Star Kid by Busy Bee! ๐Ÿ’ซ Be sure to grab this free outfit before the Baron โ€” err, Rumpelstiltskin?? โ€” takes off.

Thankfully, Adventure Outfitters’s latest lineup is Rumpel-free. Summer styles are in season for the costume racks! ๐ŸŒž

On the shop floor to the left, you’ll find the two costumes teased last month. The dark medieval garb is called Cloaked Rogue, and the fuchsia demon is called Demon Mischief. The Creators’ update post doesn’t mention anyone who correctly guessed the names. Meanwhile, on your right, you’ll find plenty of cabana goods for your clubhouse.

Member gifts have also flown in for July! Inspired by our recently rewritten fowl friend Ringmaster Raven, this month’s exclusive spoils are a Crow Cloak, Crow Mask, and Baby Crow Follower. ๐Ÿฆ…

Wrapping up this post, enjoy the latest fan art features of curious characters from Poptropica’s Instagram stories!

Anyway, what’s your theory on what’s up with the Red Baron? Baronstiltskin? Are you twitching in excitement at what will unravel? Share in the comments!

Thank you for reading, and have a good day!

Baron boxes bring Goofy and Jade ๐ŸฅŠ

Hey Poptropicans, pop in for treasures, a contest, and some fan art!

The Baron has landed, and Jade and Goofy are the flavors of the season. ๐Ÿชฒ๐Ÿคช Enjoy the memorabilia from the latest Dream Islands, Jade Scarab and Goofball, totaling 550 credits for the whole haul.

Could the Goofball ancestor with a nose be related to Ringmaster Raven? ๐Ÿ‘ƒ

The trend continues over to the left with a jade-colored boxer wearing a goofy grin! Boxing Barb by Nervous Star, the latest costume contest winner, comes in three parts including gloves and shoes, all free for taking. Get them while you can โ€” the Baron doesn’t stay long! ๐Ÿ’ฅ๐ŸฅŠ

Speaking of the costume contest, the next round has kicked off! You’ll have from now until June 21 at 8 p.m. PST (11 p.m. EST) to share your original outfit ideas. See the Pop Creators’ Blog for details ยป

Rounding off with some costume design inspo, here are the latest fan art features from Pop’s Instagram stories! โœจ

Keep on poppin’ on!


Baron's Airship

Jade Scarab raid for the Baron’s in May ๐Ÿชฒ

Hey Poptropicans, the Baron’s back with tons of treasure! ๐Ÿดโ€โ˜ ๏ธ

Head inside the airship’s Cabin of Curiosities to stock up on an assortment of gems from the recently released Jade Scarab Island. Get them all for a total of 1,260 credits. (That’s 90% less than the going rate of a camel tour… what a steal!) ๐Ÿซ

Ask the Baron โ€” happily adorned in a probably pillaged Egyptian Pharaoh headdress โ€” how she acquired such things, and she’ll dismissively wave your concerns away while managing to throw in some shade at you and Amelia.ย (She may not share her secrets, but you can dig deeper on Jade Scarab with our island review or the trivia in our guide!)

Don’t sleep on the free outfit from the costume design contest winner: Vamp Rock by Sleepy Owl. Be sure to pick up the free pair of boots too!

Plus, enjoy the costume entries from April’s contest in the video compilation reel below. So many super styles!

That’s a wrap for this update! Pop on over to the skies of Home Island to grab these goodies before they’re gone… the Baron won’t stay long!

Kick Back at the Cabin of Curiosities โ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿน๐Ÿ‘Ÿ

Hey, Poptropicans! Yesterday’s big announcement certainly grabbed our attention, but let’s not forget the other stories lost in the shuffle.

The Red Baron is back with new treasures for all, so let’s climb aboard and check them out. Head into the Cabin of Curiosities and check out the winner of March’s costume contest: Spa Day by Chilly Feather!

The soft robe, cucumber face mask, and drink make this the perfect thing to wear after a long day of exploring Poptropica. This free ‘fit also comes with an equally free pair of pink bunny slippers, which the Creators clarify are not made from Dr. Hare. Sure, Creators, we’ll take your word for it… for now.

The Baron seems to have taken a liking to this particular costume, as she can be seen wearing the same cucumber face mask. She’s chillaxing after finding some fancy footwear. Players can purchase Grey LoafersRed Shoes, and Yellow Flipflops for their feet as well as a Shoe Rack for their clubhouses, all of which cost 100 credits each. ๐Ÿ‘Ÿ๐Ÿ‘Ÿ

But wait, there’s more! Members can check out April’s member gifts: a pair of Butterfly Wings, a Butterfly Follower, and a Baby Fox Follower. This gift pack definitely fits the ongoing spring season, but I can’t get over how everything is so… orange. Not sure what you guys think about color choice, but five year old me would have loved these. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿงก

The hype for Poptropica’s Steam release has officially begun! On social media, the Creators released their first hint at one of the returning islands: “Don’t be shocked when life gives you lemons.”

The two most popular guesses so far are Survival Island and Shrink Ray Island, which use lemons in certain puzzles. The player powers a radio with a lemon battery in Survival Island: Episode 3, and CJ writes a secret message with lemon juice in Shrink Ray Island. Which classic island could this be referring to? ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ‹

Finally, the Creators featured a meme redraw by Instagram user happyclonetrooper aka Maroon Ring. Don’t worry, Maroon, we’re sure that Pop’s Steam game will have plenty of medallions for you to collect.

That’s all for now. What do you think of these new items? Which islands do you hope will appear in Pop’s Steam port? What do you think of the color orange? Share your thoughts in the comments below!

Thank you for reading, and have a good day!
