Vote for your favorite Poptropica villain! 🦹‍♂️

It’s time for a Poptropica showdown! In this guest post by Smart Icicle, vote for the best Poptropica villain and see how they stack up with the rest.

Of course, Poptropica has had many more villains since the Pop Creators’ Blog’s great Poptropica Villain Showdown of 2011…

Hello! I’m Smart Icicle and I want to share a poll with all of you! You may not know me, but I’m also known as Target1051 on Poptropica and DeviantArt. I am a big fan of Poptropica. I decided to create this poll because I want to know what villains you like. Whichever villains come out top, I’ll write about them in a future Pop 5 post here on the PHB!

The poll will close two weeks from now, on Feb 13 at 11:59 PM EST.

That’s it for now. Smart Icicle out! 📚❄️

Out-of-this-World Skinny Moon and Vehicle Designs!

Hello, everyone!

Lucky Joker here with some out-of-this-World snaps, polls, and other social media paraphernalia. Let’s get into it, shall we?

Earlier this week, Skinny Moon posted this Poptropica–to–Poptropica Worlds comparison of her avatar on the Creators’ Blog. The new look sure does pop!

skinny2bmoon2b-2bpoptropica2bvs-2bpoptropica2bworlds

In her post, she credits Poptropica artist Lance (presumably Lance Fry) for her new avatar. Well done, Lance!

Skinny Moon also posted these pictures on various Poptropica social media channels before blogging about it. Be sure to follow their social media (more on that below) to see what’s new, even before the Creators (or anyone in the fandom) blogs about it!

Anyway, which Skinny Moon do you like better? (I really love both of them!) Share your thoughts in the comments.

Also on the Creators’ Blog, a “Pick your favorite Poptropica vehicle designs” poll is currently being conducted. The cut-off date is unknown, so go ahead and vote for your favorite as soon as possible, before it closes!

For the poll, they’ve asked us to pick TWO of our favorite designs, and hinted that the most popular ones may someday come to life within Poptropica Worlds!

The options at hand are: Big Wheel, Future Bike 01, Future Bike 02, Greenfire Truck, Wild Bug, and Uni-Moto.

They’ve actually shown these designs before, a few years back. These were concepts for an abandoned project called Racer Island (or as they mentioned, The Great Race).

For some unknown reason, they’ve omitted one of the vehicles from the poll – this blue “Future Bike 01” was replaced with one of the other Future Bikes from the original.

Strange. Maybe they figured they had enough Future Bikes in the mix. In any case, be sure to vote for your two favorites!

Lastly, there’s a new display of Poptropica’s social media visible at the bottom of today’s post on the Creators’ Blog. (These buttons have also been on their sidebar for some time now.) Perhaps they could go for a more modern look, though?

Well, that’s all for now. Thanks for reading!

A plethora of poptastic updates!

Hello, everyone!

Lucky Joker here and today I’ll be sharing updates regarding the #MyPoptropicaCostume contest, the Poptropica app and more! Skinny Moon has seen most of the FAQ on Poptropica’s social media and decided to answer a few today on the Creator’s Blog, so let’s get right to it.

Regarding the #MyPoptropicaCostume contest, here’s what she had to say:

We haven’t forgotten about the #MyPoptropicaCostume contest. Au contraire, my popping peeps. We are almost done combing through all the entries and hope to open up voting for the runners-up later this week!

You read it right—Voting could open up as soon as this week! When the voting process commences, we’ll let you know. Can’t wait to see all of the amazing runner-ups!

She also mentioned Poptropica Worlds in her latest post and is fully aware of all of the questions we have. Expect a FAQ post to appear on the blog in the near future. 😉

Also, don’t forget to vote for February’s Islands of the Month. Voting ends tomorrow January 24 at midnight ET, so be sure to do so soon. Here are the results so far:

It’s pretty neck and neck here. Which one will you vote for?

On the topic of Islands of the Month, make sure to go finish January’s Islands of the Month and take advantage of the usual credit boost. You have a week left to play!

Skinny Moon hasn’t only been blogging as of late, but snapchatting as well under the name “Official Poptropica”. Check out these snaps from earlier today:

As for the Poptropica App, there appears to be a new ad (acknowledging Poptropica’s latest comicWeek 32) with a couple of prizes to be earned! Though it may be on the desktop version as well, I was only able to find it on the app. Anyway, let’s pop right into it!

I’ll admit, the game is pretty difficult  but it’s still fun nonetheless! To earn your prizes, slide your finger across your screen to dodge falling objects which include bananas, barrels and carrots. (It makes much more sense if you read the comic. 😛 )

The broomsticks up on the top left corner signify the amount of times you can get hit with an object before you lose. The bar on the left shows the progress you’ve made on your way to the finish.

Upon completing the game, you’ll win the Flying Monkey Costume and the Banana Peel!

Well, that’s it for now! Thanks for stopping by and I’ll talk to you soon. Pop on!

Time to Vote: What will be February’s IotMs?

Hey there, Poptropicans!

It’s Happy Lobster, and I’ve got some good news for you. As many of you would know, Islands of the Month takes place monthly (obviously), and so that means that two brand-new IotMs will be announced once January ends and February commences.

In a quick summary, IotMs result in the following:

  • 500 credits are given for first-time finishers of corresponding islands, and 300 credits are given to replays;
  • IotM members-only store costumes and powers will return for a limited time;
  • Behind-the-scenes artworks, scenes, plots, and other items of IotMs unseen before will be showcased on the Creators’ Blog, and;
  • Captain Crawfish will make any video walkthroughs for IotMs that don’t have one already created.

But this time, you get to decide one IotM for February – out of Super Power Island and Reality TV Island. Sadly, you will not be able to determine February’s other IotM – which, as of yet, is unknown – but one is more than good enough, right?

Anyhow, the poll ends by Friday, January 27th Tuesday, January 24th, at midnight, ET. (Updated: The time has been moved up to give Captain Crawfish more time to make his video walkthrough!) 

The island with the most votes by then will become a February IotM. Vote on the Creators’ Blog now!

New Pop, New Pad: Voting Time!

Hello everyone, Spotted Dragon here again with a Poptropica update!

As you already know, Poptropica will be experiencing some big changes in the upcoming future. We aren’t completely sure what this “New Poptropica” has in store yet, but we do know that we will be getting pets, shoes, and more cool stuff. And ya know what else? We’ll also be getting houses!

bachelor pads

Yep, you heard right! The Pop Creators have shared a few cool designs with us that we get to vote on. And houses are only the beginning!

“The Poptropica Creators are hard at work on the New Poptropica that’s coming later this year — and we need YOUR help! Over the upcoming months we’ll be asking for your opinions on a bunch of different exciting things that relate to the New Poptropica.”

Now that’s some big news. First, New Poptropica is still on track to be released this year! There aren’t too many more months to go in 2016, so this big update seems to be coming very soon! Or at least before 2017, which is something I guess. Maybe some new islands will be released soon after the update?

Second, this isn’t the only part of New Pop that we get to help decide on. Aside from houses, apparently we get to vote on many other features over the next couple months! Of course, they’ve casually asked our opinions on some features, like shoes, over on Twitter before, but we actually are starting to see what they’ve been working on!

So, be sure to vote on your favorite house design by clicking here. From top left to bottom right in the image above, we have Landmark, Rustic, Beach, Tudor, and Castle to choose from. Personally, my favorite is Tudor. 😛

Remember that the poll closes this Sunday, the 28th, at midnight EST. Vote before then! 😀
