Great news! Galactic Hot Dogs Island is now out for all. We will try to have a guide for the island soon, but in the meantime, the Poptropica Creators have their own video walkthrough.

Moving on, if you haven’t heard already, the Creators have a new Poptropica Comics series called Mystery of the Map. Don’t worry, the story still follows are favorite Poptropica Comic characters: Oliver and Jorge. So far, there have been 6 pages. To stay up to date, click here.

While on the subject of Poptropica Comics, check out this cool sneak peek.

In other news, time to catch up on PopStorm! So here is 13, 14, and 15.

 

Hehehe, cute. 😛 Of course, there are also a ton of amazing Realm creations to be shared!

Check out the Poptropica Twitter for even more remarkable realms!

While on the subject of Poptropica Realms, a select few Poptropicans have been featured on the Poptropica Realms banner, shown on the Poptropica homepage.

Realms, GHDI, & New Designs

As usual, lots of popping news to catch up on! First up, Poptropica Realms is now out for members!

We will provide more info after we’ve checked it out. 😉

Also, the official Galactic Hot Dogs Island Trailer is now out! We previously only had the teaser to look at.

The island will be popping up on the map for members on January 29 and on February 19 for nonmembers. However, the Creators to want to mention that these dates may change.

Besides the new trailer, GHD has a new paper craft as well! It is the Neon Wiener spaceship paper craft.

You can find and print out your own on the island’s Tour Page, or in the Poptropica Store.

In other news, the Creators’ Blog has been a little modified. Not much, but it now matches Poptropica’s updated look.

Talking about new designs, HP recently discovered some more behind the scenes artwork from one of Poptropica’s graphic designers. Specifically, Chris Goodwin’s portfolio. His Poptropica related sections include Scene Illustration, Character Design, and Concept Art. Of course, we’ve also mentioned Nate Greenwall’s portfolio before too. 🙂

Lastly, I would like to give a shout-out to Pixel (Nice Dragon), who completed Early Poptropica Island 1000 times! Now that’s impressive! 😀

Quick! Take a Selfie! Comics, Realms, & More

Of course, the Creators want to give us a happy holiday!

Hehehe, I love the GHD ship in the background.

Dr. Lange also felt the need to make a tribute to the PHB. It’s pretty impressive, so you might want to check it out!

Anyway, we also have some behind the scenes images to share. First up, “a paused project….

bts comic

Well, it looks like a comic to promote an island, such as the Virus Hunter: Pandemic Panic series. For what island, I’m not sure.

Next up, a sneak peek that seems to be for the Poptropica Comic Island.

poptropica realmsThe red lines seem to be the platforms that we can walk on.

The Creators also shared this Poptropica Realms sneak peek (on the right).

“Just grabbed from a Poptropica Creator’s computer when she snuck out to do some shopping.”

I personally can’t wait for Poptropica Realms! 😛

Lastly, The Creators wanted to share six Poptropica selfies of 2014.

Cute. 😛 That’s it for now! Happy holidays everyone!

Zany’s Grand Tour, Forgotten 3D Islands, and Popping Art

Yep, the updates just keep on coming!

The Public Land Preview may be over, but the hype isn’t! A tour of Zany Crown’s Tree House, the winner of the Land competition, has been released. It was made by Captain Crawfish himself. 🙂

Pretty cool, huh? I defiantly think the basement with the tree roots was the best part of the Land. It was super creative, so congrats Zany!

Plus, Poptropica Forgotten Islands is now out for Nintendo 3DS. You can buy it now at Amazon.

Just in time for the holidays!

Of course, there has been more art released on Twitter. Click to enlarge the images.

Sorry if it’s a bit difficult to see. This was Jeff Kinney’s rough castle sketch for Vampire’s Curse.

undergroundNow this is a sneak peek of an upcoming island’s “palace interior scene.” Apparently the island will be coming in January 2015, so it’s not too far away. Any theories guys? I may be way off, but the image kinda reminds me of the underground Daily Pops we were focused on a while ago, throughout 2013. Some people even thought they could be for the return of Legendary Swords. A good example of those Daily Pops can be found here (or look to the right). The images seem to have a similar style, right? Then again, at a second glace, the old Daily Pops remind me of Arabian Nights too. Well, hopefully you guys have some better theories than I do. 😛

Anyway, a Creator also drew another Pop Storm! This one demonstrates the Squash and Stretch theme.

That’s all for now! Comment your thoughts below. 😉

Carnival Art, New Worlds, Upcoming Comic, & Holidays

Hey Poptropicans! Quick update with some recent tweets.

First off, the Creators released another piece of Monster Carnival concept art.

I think my favorite is the bottom left. 😛

The Creators also gave us a sneak peek of an upcoming Land feature. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but we will create… A WHOLE NEW WORLD!!! XD

I don’t know about you guys, but this looks amazing to me. Anyone getting a “Spore” vibe? Anyway, this is apparently a “prototype of player’s world management screen for Poptropica Land.” 😀

In other news, we have a Poptropica Comic sneak peek to share!

Hehehe… XD

Before I go… Happy Veterans Day! You may not celebrate the occasion, but it’s still good to just say thank you for those who have protected you. On that note, Poptropica just can’t wait for Thanksgiving!

Hmm… Now I’m craving turkey and corn on the cob… 😛

Balloon Man, Best of the Land, & More!

Hey guys! A lot of recent Tweets and posts to cover. First off, I want to emphasize this new video that has been added to the Creator’s “Inside Poptropica” YouTube playlist.

…Does this mean that Balloon Boy may be returning soon? Part of me is thrilled and part of me is sad that we may not be able to look in the sky and find him there any longer. Here is what has been said on the subject:

 balloon boy talk

As you can see, Balloon Boy may soon become a Balloon Man…

In other news, Poptropica has still been buzzing on Tumblr lately! The awesomeness has even spread to classrooms.

Ugh, I hate it when I’m stuck on the loading page with a ton of vines across my screen. 😛

Plus, some more concept art has been released! This time, it is for the recent “Monster High” ad. Plus, a random sketch and a boy shooting hoops on the moon (which is linked to the Lunar Colony trailer).

As you may know, PoptropiCon Episode 2: Spoiler Alert has been released to members and Arabian Nights Episode 1: How Bazzar has been released to everyone. To celebrate, there is a new PoptropiCon themed costume in the Store, called Popzilla.

Yikes! Looks ferocious, doesn’t it? 😉

I also want to share an awesome site that the Creators found. It is called Ask the World’s Most Dangerous Losers. On the site, you can send in any question to be answered by the Poptropica Villains! Note that this is a fan site, therefore fans are answering the questions, not the Poptropcia team. Still, it’s pretty cool!

robotic rabit

Yep, I definitely ship Dr. Hare and Binary Bard now. Let’s call them… Robo-Rabbit. XD

Anyway… The Best of the Land: Dream Houses have been announced!

Look at that! The PHB’s own Slanted Fish is among the best! Click here for an in depth tour of her creation. Nice work Fishy!

Sadly, we are a little late on posting this, so voting for the best of the best is over. The winner is… Zany Crown! Congrats! 😀

The Best of the Land: Villages has also been announced! Thankfully, we are on time for this one.

Click here to go vote for your favorite! The poll should be to the right of the page. The next theme in the contest is an obstacle course, so good luck everyone!

Once more thing! Survival Episode 5, along with free Halloween costumes, are now available in the Poptropica app.
