Crafty Dr. Hare becomes paper craft

Are you the type of person who always roots for the villain no matter what? Do you never tire of seeing Dr. Hare’s face? Or do you just love to make things? Well, while we’re still waiting to reach the 10,000 mark on Poptropica’s LEGO CUUSOO project (we’re up to 7,700 now!), you may as well build your very own paper Dr. Hare with this pink-infested template.

Aww, isn’t he cute? (Or creepy, depending on how you look at things.) By the way, you’re probably going to need some scissors and glue for this little DIY project. Look, there’s even a banner on the Poptropica homepage for the crafty villain in paper form!

NEW PHB PAGE ALERT! If you’re in the mood for something else, good news! The PHB now has its own page for any and all Off-Topica (meaning off-topic from Poptropica), which you can find under the Chat tab in the navigation bar above. As long as you follow the guidelines mentioned on the page, you get to talk about anything non-Poptropica! Even ex-Pop players can join in here!

Oh, look at this Daily Pop sneak peek! Did someone say Fishy?

Fishy – Don’t see much joy to these fishies in the deep blue sea.

Fishy

Wha-? Did you just-? I am offended, Daily-Pop-Pencil-Wielding Shark Boy. Offended.

Also, a final word from MT (you may remember him as a former PHB author and the creator of PWH)…

His new show, Happy Endingz – a brand new webseries about three friends London, Raeen and Trev getting into trouble in the streets of LA – is expected to premiere Thursday, July 11th.

And be sure to check out the posts below to catch up on Poptropica’s latest shenanigans!

Dr Hare ears, a copter, and the return of Poptropolis

hare earsHear ye, hear ye! Free ears for everybody*! (Now you can hear me even better!) Just enter the new promo code DRHARE7500 when you log into Poptropica to receive the Dr. Hare’s Lair – Dr. Hare Ears Power, which allows you to give everybody Dr. Hare ears! (Don’t worry, they’ll be removed once you enter a new room/area.)

*Everybody who has supported the project on LEGO CUUSOO, that is. So if you haven’t done that yet, and you’ve passed your 13th birthday or know someone who already has, Mr. Bucktooth Bunny Dr. Hare would like your support!

There’s a video ad on Main Streets for a book by James Patterson called Middle School: How I Survived Bullies, Broccoli, Snake Hill. After watching the video, you’ll get a Middle School: Rafe Rescue Copter for a prize! The helicopter will just fly by on your screen when you activate it, like so:

…maybe not the best way to carry a sick person. At least it didn’t drop him on my head!

Could this new Daily Pop sneak peek be hinting at the return of Poptropolis Games Island? Samwow5 thinks so. It certainly does have that emerge-from-underwater and giant-statue-block feel to it!

Salvage Operation – There are a lot of treasures at the bottom of the sea.

What’s your take? Return of Poptropolis, maybe with some new additions, or just a decapitated head taking a little bubble bath in the sea? I mean, there are a couple spots on there that could use a bit of cleaning…

Dial B for Bunny

Hey, I’m back! With projects, finals, and even summer assignments for high-school, I have been really busy and unable to post. Do not fear! Now that summer is underway I will have more time to post! (Seems like this is becoming a common theme, doesn’t it?)

CarrotSound

Or should it be Dial B for Beta?

Now that the introduction is out of the way, we have our first official look inside the new 24 Carrot Island: Beta Carrotene and we get an explanation of what it includes (other than  a red-orange pigment found in plants and fruits, especially carrots and colorful vegetables 😉 ). We will be able to play with  features previously previewed such as the full screen, music and sound effects, and controversial new “navigation system” that appears to be the same as what is used in the common rooms. We do have to remember that since it is just in Beta that there will be features missing such as saving your game or using the customizer, but don’t fret, because these will be added back in later. Are you bouncing off the walls about this update, because I definitely am!

Dial M for Monkey B for Bunny

We also have our first look at the newest LEGO CUUSOO project prize. Our next code will give us the power to place these bunny ears on who ever we want! But wait, what would happen if we tried to put them on Dr. Hare? These styling bunny ears can be yours in under 100 more supporters, so if you haven’t yet, make sure to support the project!

You have to admit, you want to put some bunny ears on every one on 24 Carrot too.

Sound: Poptropica’s Biggest Makeover?

Hey guys, BT here. Now, I’m just shocked at this video. Shocked in a happy way. VERY SHOCKED.

Wow, I did NOT see that coming. Whew. Full sound and music in Poptropica after 5 and a half years… and with a full screen at that!

This is just stunning. So far, 24 Carrot Island’s redux seems epic (I’m loving the music and the effects of the crows and the crowbar and everything.)

I think this was the reason why we haven’t heard much of Virus Hunter Island in a while. I’m super pumped about this. This is a really big piece of news here, peeps.

BT out!

Hey everyone, Slanted Fish here:

The addition of music and more sound effects in Poptropica sounds great to me as well! It’s definitely been a long time coming. Anyway, here’s a bit more ear-related news for you: when Dr. Hare’s Lair reaches 7,500 supporters on LEGO CUUSOO, we’ll be getting this Dr. Hare Ears Power!

Now we’ll definitely be well-equipped for when this big sound update comes out! Notice the new menu icon in the video as well! Plus, as Silver Wolf pointed out in the comments, the trusty blue/green arrow has been replaced with the common room cursor! The general consensus in the comments for that is… that’s a bad move. That cursor’s pretty annoying, and jumping around with it just isn’t the same.

Well, I’m looking forward to hearing more about what’s up in Poptropica. (Pun intended, of course!)

Little Evil Genius – Dr Hare Wallpaper

Dr. Hare’s LEGO CUUSOO project has reached 6,000+ supporters, and as promised, the Creators have released a brand-new Dr. Hare drone-head, carrot-laden wallpaper for you to deck out your desktop!

The little evil genius in the pink rabbit suit welcomes you in green or blue backgrounds for multiple devices and screen sizes. If you want this green-goggled face greeting you when you look at your screen, download it for the device you want it on:

Now we’re only ~4,000 supporters away from the goal of the big ten thousand! So if you haven’t already, and you’re over 13 (or know someone old enough to represent your vote) – you know what I’m going to say next – vote for Dr. Hare’s Lair on LEGO CUUSOO to make it a reality!

DrHare5000 Promo Code: Dr. Hare’s Deluxe Balloons

Dr. Hare Deluxe BalloonsDr. Hare’s been hyping about this for long enough… and it’s paid off because the halfway goal of 5,000 supporters for Poptropica’s LEGO CUUSOO project has finally been achieved!

As promised, the balloons are here – just enter the promo code DRHARE5000 when you log in or visit the Store to receive the Dr. Hare Deluxe Balloons, featuring Evil Chubby Bunny With Bucktooth and Evil Bunny Drone Face Insignia.

Now now, our favorite evil bunny has made it very clear that it would be extremely shameful if those not worthy of this glorious inflatable prize dared to claim it, so for the sake of good ethics, if you HAVEN’T voted yet and you want these balloons, go support it now. If you’re under 13, get an adult to vote for you. I mean, you COULD just skip this step and get the balloons, but… for shame, for shame. *shakes head slowly*

The LEGO CUUSOO Team also posted this comment on the project idea page:

2013.04.10

Hi PopCreators,

Congratulations on passing the halfway point on LEGO CUUSOO with your Poptropica: Dr. Hare’s Lair project! Your project and concept models are focused and well-built. It’s not hard to imagine this as an official LEGO product. All in all, great presentation.

Best wishes as you reach for 10,000 supporters on LEGO CUUSOO.

Yay! Halfway there!

In other news, Poptropica’s Official Tips & Tricks App now has a walkthrough guide for Night Watch. However, this being a site that is partially based on creating Poptropica walkthroughs, it has to be said that the PHB has a Night Watch Island Guide as well, so… you know where to go!

Balloons just out of reach & a revamped Costumes page!

Remember when Dr. Hare promised everyone a Bunny Balloon for when Poptropica’s “Dr. Hare’s Lair” LEGO CUUSOO project reached 5,000 supporters? Well, he isn’t just offering the super-enticing Dr. Hare Deluxe Balloon

We’re also going to get an Insignia Deluxe Balloon! These would make Balloon Boy jealous!

But hold your horses… these balloons aren’t available just yet. (Audience: “Awwww….”) Currently, the LEGO project is only at 3,900+ supporters, so keep encouraging people to vouch for it! 5,000 is not only the halfway mark for the needed 10,000 – it also means two free balloons.

When asked what Dr. Hare himself had to say, he looked the camera in the eye and said with a sincere face, “Don’t do it for me, or for the thousands of other Poptropicans who would love a couple of free balloons. Do it for yourself. You deserve something nice.”

You do deserve something nice! These balloons may not be available yet, but check out the PHB’s newly-revamped Costumes page (still listed under Cool Stuff), now with over 70 costumes (with pictures), plus commentary on how to get most of them, and even a tips section. We’ve got lots of outfit advice from fellow Poptropica fashion enthusiasts, so come and take a look!
