Some people think that the UFO may have crashed here, because of this sneak peek. Golden Eagle noticed that this was similar to this other sneak peek. What do you think? Share your thoughts by commenting here!

Remember to take a look at all the other posts below. There’s been a lot of AK Island sneak peeks lately, and don’t forget to try the newly-discovered PHB Dr. Hare Glitch!

Wear Me!

Or should I say, wear us!

Thanks to Cheerful Claw for the update: yesterday’s T-shirt design poll is over and the winning shirts are now available for purchase at Poptropica’s online store. That’s right, not just one shirt, but two!

Here’s Shark Boy’s explanation.

We have a winner! Since both the 1st and 2nd place designs were close we decided to make T-shirts out of both. So check out our store to get your own Secret Agent shirt. Thanks to all who voted!

Bring it on…

Poptropica Life Size Wall Prints

The T-shirts weren’t the only merchandise section to update! The Poptropica Creators’ Blog‘s “Poptropica Life Size Wall Prints” widget also experienced a change. (See the picture on the right to know what it looks like now!)

The new widget image reads, “7 feet of pure Poptropica awesomeness <Ned Noodlehead’s picture> PoptropicaLife Size Wall Prints Click Here available through LTLprints.com”. As usual, clicking on the picture brings you to another one of Poptropica’s online stores, and this one is located at LTLprints.com. The title of the online store now reads,”Poptropica Official Partner – Buy Your Favorite Poptropica as a Life-Sized – Removable and Reusab[le]”.

On the Poptropica LTL (Larger Than Life) webpage, there are new advertisements showing how the wall decorations are, “Self-Adhesive, Removable, Reusable, Durable, Easy to Install. Peel-it! Stick-it! Repeat!” They also offer free shipping with laptop prints!

On the LTLprints blog, there is a post about working with Poptropica’s merchandise, and it includes a video. You can check it out here: http://www.ltlprints.com/blog/poptropica-teams-up-with-larger-than-life-prints/. Click the link below to watch the video:

Berries, our source of survival.

“Must… get… food!”

Comic Kid had been in Reality TV Island’s jungles for days searching for food. Now he was scanning the horizon for any signs of a meal. “Aha! Over there; a berry bush!” Excitedly, he runs over to the ledge where the bush was and jumps on it. “Mmm, I can just taste that sweet berry in my mouth.” He yanks a bunch of berries of the bush and starts popping them into his mouth.

Not just a treat, but a way to survive. Reality TV is going to be tough!

Blog Post Title: More than a treat
Description: These berries are more than just a treat. They’re the way to survive on Reality TV Island!

Because of Comic Kid’s blog post description, we can now confirm that “Reality TV Island” may indeed be the exact name of the much-anticipated upcoming island! :D

NPC Popularity Contests, Sneak Peeks

Here fishy, fishy! It’s Medicine Man!

Note: Please do not repeat “new post” when someone else has already said it! The PHB has decided that we will not be giving any credits for posts where more than one person has spoken of it. For both sneak peeks shown below, unfortunately, this has happened, so there will be no “credits” today.

Fishies!
Comic Kid is definitely a talented artist. Check out his nice sketches of some of the fish he met on his adventures:

Blog Post Title: Look at the fishes!
Description: Check out these cool fish I recently saw on my adventures. They were so amazing that I had to sketch them in my sketch book in order to show the world!

Want a wall print, Shifty Scorpion?

Note: For these next few posts, the PHB has decided that we will not be giving “credits” because it upsets too many people. If you would like to continue the “credits” system, though, please show us you can handle it by not commenting about a new PCB post after one person has already mentioned it. We are getting a lot of spam recently, all to do with this crediting thing.

Snapshot Sagas: Shifty Scorpion
Welcome to another wild tale from Vlad the Viking as he tells his adventure with Copy Cat and his new buddy Shifty Scorpion! Enjoy:

I was surrounded. A multitude of black and white striped shirts and pale faces were on every side. It was strange though, for they all looked identical! I don’t know how she did it, but she was able to duplicate herself over and over again.

“COPY CAT!” The shout rang out down the street. She turned, as did all of her other clones. They all seemed to jump in unison, like the waves of the sea as they passed Shark Tooth Island. Almost instantly, a chorus of screeches erupted from the crowd that nearly shattered the lens of my poor camera.

“RATS!” she screamed, as the little beasts scurried around her feet. A man was off in the distance, laughing as he watched his army of rodents torment all of the copies of his victim. Thanks to their little skirmish, I was able to get away without too much trouble.

I walked into the newspaper building that was nearby. I had been there before, so it was nice returning to a familiar place. Here I met Shifty Scorpion. He was shifty indeed! Trying to get a photo of him was terribly difficult, but I had to photograph his interesting costume and share it with all of you!

Vlad also adds, “Keep your eyes open! You could be the next Poptropican featured on Snapshot Sagas!”
