Transforming Earth with a Poplitical Spark

Hey Poptropicans! Pop in for a drive around danger, a dose of proper politics, delightful fan art, and dazzling member gifts.

Head to Home Island, and besides enjoying the fall colors, you can now also take a sweet ride for a little spin in the new ad game for the animated series Transformers: EarthSpark! ๐Ÿค–๐ŸŒฒ

Thanks to Dizzy Feather for contributing to this news post!

Your goal is to get to Bumblebee without letting the robot spiders get too close. Like an inverse version of Zomberry Hero, you can’t let your danger meter get too high, or you’ll have to start over.

Though you get to pick which of the vehicles you use, you’ll get both of them when you win: a Twitch Drone Flier and Thrash Motorcycle Rider.

Over on Twitter, Poptropica dabbled in a bit of politics by calling for people to vote in the US midterm elections last week. ๐Ÿ—ณ Not since Poptropica’s accidental endorsement of Joe Biden for US President in 2020 have we seen their Pop-litical side, but considering the population of older players on social media, maybe it does make sense…

Enjoy the latest fan art featured on Poptropica’s Instagram stories this past week! And speaking of art, don’t forget there are just a few days left for the Holly Jolly Holiday Design Contest, which ends this Wed, Nov 16. Your idea could be one of the next member gifts! ๐Ÿ–Œ๐ŸŽ

Speaking of member gifts, check out this month’s goodies! Members of November can find a rainbow Baby Unicorn Follower, Unicorn Wings, and Unicorn Headband in their inventories. Smells like Amelia! ๐Ÿฆ„

Anti-Zombie Halloween Hints ๐ŸงŸ๐ŸŽƒ

Halfway through spooky month and there’s more on the horizon!

The latest member gifts have arrived, and they’re looking awfully combative. Members, check your inventories for your grungy gifts: Anti Zombie Bike, Anti Zombie Bat, and Anti Zombie Gear!

After Zomberry Hero two years ago and Humans vs Zombies on Roblox earlier this year, what’s next? Is another zombie apocalypse on its way?

A recent tweet from Poptropica offers a hint at a “Halloween surprise” coming up, but no further details have been announced yet.

However, with the recent reveal of the infamous Red Queen, it seems possible that a new storyline may soon open up about the mystery surrounding the latest airship arrival. We’ll have to see!

In the meantime, guest writer Dizzy Feather is back on the Pop Creators’ Blog with part 3 of her fanfic, Poptropican Heroes. Don’t miss partsย oneย andย two as well, and catch the Pink Knight prequel on the PHB!

Next up, enjoy the latest fan art features from Poptropica’s Instagram stories! We’ve got OCs and recreations of iconic characters as well. Enjoy!

While we’re admiring art, have you thought about making some? Though we’re halfway through October already, you can jump into our Poptober challenge anytime, picking whichever drawing prompts strike your fancy. Here are a few pieces from the Poppie-winning XMzhier:

And finally, the PHB’s Halloween Costume Contest is in full swing! Still two and a half weeks left to give us your take on how “The Devil Wears Poptropica.” Come show us what you’ve got and maybe even win a membership in the process! Find all the details here. ๐Ÿ˜ˆ๐Ÿ’Ž

Poptober 2022: An abundance of art! ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ–Œ

Happy October! It’s finally that time again… doesn’t feel the slightest bit close to fall in my desert, but still the spooky season is near!

Autumn is a major source of inspiration for many creatives, thanks to its beautiful foliage and harvest seasons. Some of you may remember my Poptober drawing challenge from 2020. I’m here to announce an updated one for 2022, still with daily prompts to inspire your art.

Since I’m a little late on this one, we’ll go easy with the first prompt.

There are zero rules to this challenge. Any medium is totally fine, and you can interpret the prompts however you wish. If you’re swamped with projects or short on time, feel free to just do whichever days you’d like, or do a prompt for each week!

Speaking of drawings, maybe you can find some inspiration for your creative endeavors from the latest fan art features from Poptropica’s Instagram stories, at least for fall decorating… ๐Ÿ

Also, here’s a throwback to LJ’s Poptober 2020 gallery to inspire everyone in this month of drawing challenges!

Reign of Omegon with Gains of Neon

Pop drop alert: PoptropiCon Island, Ep. 3: Reign of Omegon has been re-released for members on desktop and mobile! ๐Ÿšจ๐Ÿค–

With that, the PoptropiCon trilogy is once again complete (though it already is on Steam and Flashpoint). Once you’ve made your way inside the convention and uncovered a top-secret costume design, Episode 3 takes you to the final boss: the unexpected rise of a robot ruler.

If you’ll be visiting the depths of Omegon’s terrors, be sure to keep our PoptropiCon Island Guide near! No word yet on when it will officially re-release for non-members, but if we’re guessing from past patterns, it could be several months โ€” or even a year. Hopefully sooner, though.

The latest converted episode comes just after an announcement from the Pop Creators less than two weeks ago on the official blog, and a day after another brief appearance in our fan-run Discord server, the PHC. Poptropica didn’t stop to chat, but fans were quick to follow up with an emoji petition for bringing back the classic Astro-Knights Island. ๐Ÿš€

The Pop Creators’ Blog also brings news of a shop update featuring hoodies galore for the season of fall, as well as a new fanfic from guest writer Dizzy Feather. Check out the full shop stock as well as the prologue to The Adventures of Shy Owl on the official blog! ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿฆ‰

The start of a new month also means new member gifts! The latest batch for privileged players features a Neon Bike, Neon Leather Jacket, and Neon Helmet. Ride with style! โœจ

However, other expected monthly deliveries have yet to arrive with any mention โ€” namely the Baron’s airship along with the costume contest winner. Does the Baron’s unexplained absence last month have anything to do with it?

One more thing: September isn’t just any month, it’s Poptropica’s birthday month! Are there surprises in store? We’ll have to see… ๐Ÿ‘€

Anyway, enjoy the latest batch of Poptropica’s Instagram stories, filled with lots of fantastic villain-inspired fan art โ€” including an Astro-Knights animation and dancing to various Pop soundtracks! ๐Ÿ•บ

Keep on poppin’ on!

PoptropiCon Ep. 3 to return next month ๐Ÿค–

Wicked Cool News alert: PoptropiCon Island, Episode 3: Reign of Omegon returns to the map next month, completing the saga! โšก๏ธ

The news comes as Ep. 2: Spoiler Alert was re-released to all players two months ago, giving everyone a chance to explore the epic Poptropica convention and uncover the twist behind the Omegon costume contest.

Download extras including this screensaver from our PoptropiCon Island Guide!

There’s no mention yet about who will be granted access, but if the recent past is an indicator, the episode will probably release for members only first โ€” and hopefully for all eventually.

However, all episodes of PoptropiCon are currently playable in Poptropica’s paid Steam bundle, which also comes with many other newer classic islands. Read our Steam review here!

Onto another villain, Poptropica on Twitter recently put out a Pop poll about Dr. Hare’s species. As lore would have it, perhaps it’s both: Dr. Hare was a scientist who fused into his current form of evil genius rabbit when an experiment on a bunny rabbit went wrong. ๐Ÿฐ

Either way, he’s a longtime beloved icon in the fandom! Check out this fun marker drawing Pop recently retweeted from fan artist @loudcrab:

Stay tuned with us for the re-release of PoptropiCon’s conclusion for Haxe Poptropica, and keep on poppin’ on! ๐Ÿ’ซ
