Greetings Hawk-tropicans! This is Giant Hawk speaking, and I’ve got various visual news for all of you!

The Creators have been quite busy recently! First off, there’s a new free update to the Poptropica app. This appdate contains the promo for Escape From Pelican Rock that first came to the online Poptropica, as well as some bug fixes. All free!

Poptropica has also been creating accounts on different outlets of social media in order to connect better with us fans. Of course, you all know about their Twitter, but now they also have Vine, Snapchat (their username is @PoptropicaSC), and Periscope!

On the subject on social media, Poptropica’s aforementioned Twitter page has been tweeting out answers to some interesting questions! Let’s take a look:

True, Zeus is not the brightest ray of sunshine we know…

Clearly, there is still a lot we don’t know about Escape from Pelican Rock… What could possibly be waiting for us?

Remember those comic strips? Y’know, the ones starring our old pals Jorge and Oliver? Hopefully, they’ll have something to do during the wait time…

Now this is news-worthy! Quickly, somebody update the Poptropica Wiki! (just kidding, it’s already been updated) Confused? Check out the PHB’s Mystery of Shark Boy article to learn about his disappearance!

Guess it’s #ThrowbackTuesday over there.

But wait – there’s more news!

Bonus question: What island am I on?

Simply watch the trailer, and you will receive a Hot Streak Follower.

Finally, everyone’s favorite blog founder, SlantedFish, has done something really cool:

It’s SlantedFish herself re-creating her Poptropica character, Friendly Fish, in real life! Now this is a great idea. Would you like do something like this? Because I suspect that this IRL Poptropican is only the first of many…

Until next time!

Daily Pop, PoptropiCon Island

Cosplay at Poptropi-Con, the next frontier!

Hey everyone! Remember my last post about how the next island will probably have a city theme (possibly based on San Francisco due to the bridge and palm trees)? Well, there’s more…

Thanks to some clever connections by PHB authors and readers, we may have even more information about this new island, which appears to involve some sort of Poptropica convention where Poptropicans have taken up cosplay (costume play)! Check out these recent Daily Pops showing off some pretty good (and pretty bad) Poptropica cosplays of characters from various islands!

This may be inspired by the yearly San Diego Comic Con, which takes place in, you guessed it, San Diego. It is a giant convention for everything comics, featuring comic books, toys, movie announcements, and some legendary cosplay.

For those unaware, cosplay (short for costume play) is when a fan dresses up as their favorite character. Of course, this could be really good, or really, really bad…

So we have cosplay and a city setting probably in southern California — what could this mean? As predicted by others, I am going to say this will concern some sort of (San Francisco?) Poptropica Convention. But that doesn’t have a good ring to it! How about the Poptropi-Con? Much better!

And here we have a Daily Pop sneak peek of the actual convention center which is sporting some nice “con” signs. This image serves as final confirmation that the new island is indeed some sort of Poptropica Convention (Poptropi-Con?).
