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.

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!

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! 😀

Get your new Galactic Hot Dogs gear!

Hey guys, quick post here– The Creators just released two new items to the Poptropica Store to celebrate the upcoming release of Galactic Hot Dogs!

The first item is a F.R.E.D Follower, and it’s available free for everyone. That’s right.

The next item is a Galactic Space Suit only for members. Looking good.

Members can also print a GHD poster from the store with their Poptropican posing alongside Cosmoe, Humphree, and Princess Dagger.

Along with that, everyone can download the free GHD desktop wallpaper from the GHD Island Tour Page!

Comment below to tell us what you think of it so far! Bye everyone!

A Huge, Poppin’ Update!

Hey guys, I know it’s been a while, but winter break is here, so hopefully we will post more often! 😀 LOTS of updates, so let’s get started. FYI, some of these updates are probably a bit old.

Let’s start out with the big one: Galactic Hot Dog Island. The trailer is now out, along with the Tour Page.

Looks pretty cool! 😀

From the hit graphic novel comes the zaniest Poptropica adventure yet. Hop aboard the Neon Wiener for an intergalactic voyage with Cosmoe, Humphree, and Princess Dagger!

Start your adventure now: read Galactic Hot Dogs season one on Funbrain!

The Tour Page oddly indicates that this island will not have episodes. At least, the episodes aren’t included on the page. On that note, episodes will soon be no longer:

Well, I personally didn’t like the episodes, so I’m perfectly fine with this. What about you guys?

Anyway, back to GHD Island. Two new store items will soon be out. The FRED Follower is free and the Galactic Space Suit is only for members.

Along with the GHD items, a new Arabian Nights item is now out for members! It is for members only and entitled Plundered Armor.

Remember that members can play Arabian Nights: Lair of Thieves tomorrow!

Other than that, the Creators have released another behind the scenes image.

Also, Jeff Kinney was on the Today show! Be sure to check it out! Mainly Diary of a Wimpy Kid related stuff. 😛

Shrink Ray SUI For All – Stressed Out Sea Life

shrink ray 1

shrink ray 2Hey guys just a quick post to let everyone know that Shrink Ray (SUI) will be out for everyone on December 4, which is this Thursday! And remember that the Shrink Ray Gun is free in the Poptropica Store!

In other news, since the release of the Poptropica App on Android, the amount of downloads has been amazing! Nearly at a rate of 6,000 per day! Now that’s pretty cool.

The Creators have also released yet another sneak peek on Twitter. Click to enlarge the image

It’s a bit more difficult to tell what this sneak peek is for. Along with the image, the Creators said “We too get that busy, overwhelmed, confusing feeling.” That also doesn’t give anything away, at least not for me. However, the font used in “AHHHHHHH!” looks like it may be for Galactic Hot Dogs. What do you guys think? Comment below!

Well, that’s all for now! Stay popping Poptropicans! 🙂

Wishlists, Fat Cats, Aliens, & More!

Hey guys! More Twitter updates, like usual. First up, we thought that Arabian Nights was going to come out for members yesterday, but it did not. Apparently, it will now come out for members on December 11 and for everyone on December 30. In the meantime, be sure to check out this behind the scenes look at the episode, including a theory, that I helped to write. 😉

Looks like “The Lair of Thieves” will be the last episode/island to come out in 2014. Which reminds me… It’s time to print out your Poptropica Holiday Wishlist!

wish list

Let’s see… I want… everything of course! 😀

In other news, Pop Storm 7 was recently released. This one depicts some purr-fect kittens. Well, some might say purr-fect, but to be honest they might wanna go on a diet. 😛

Also, now that the Poptropica Comic series is over for this year, there is now a Poptropica Comics App, available in the App Store!

Awesome timing, since the Poptropica App itself is finally available for Android devices.

Hmmm… I wonder how the Creators come up with all these wonderful ideas…

google hangout

Oh right… that’s how. XD The Creators recently posted this picture of themselves in a Google Hangout, discussing Common Rooms. Very professional guys. *slow clap* We aren’t exactly sure who is a part of the chat, but we do know “Chris” and “Jeff” (Kinney?) are.

*cough* Anyway… remember how Galactic Hot Dogs is going to soon become an island? Well, the Creators would like some input on one of their designs.

GHD monster eyes

I personally think the Poptropican eyes would look better. I rather see the GHD characters in Poptropica form, for a fresh look. Comment below or go to their post to express your opinions! 🙂

Stubb in the Spotlight, Menacing Mouths, & Galactic Sneak Peeks

Hey Poptropicans! Just a few Twitter updates to cover. 😛

First up! Do you remember Stubb, from SOS Island? She was found in the Boiler Room and was a very hard worker. Well, a Poptropica Illustrator created some back story for her! In the form of a picture of course.

Along with that, the fifth Pop Storm is out! This one is entitled Menacing Mouths.

Interesting… Anyway, the next tweet refers to Galactic Hotdogs. However, it’s not the usual GHD update… In fact, the Creators claim that it is “VERY, VERY behind the scenes.”

ghd

Do we have a new island upon us??? Hmmm??? Plus, it links to the video below.

Yeah, I’m kinda getting a new island vibe. Especially since the Creators mentioned that GHD may become an island in the future.

There is another behind the scenes image on Twitter, but this doesn’t reveal much. It shows “tools being built for more refined character animations in Poptropica’s videos.”

Hey, still pretty cool. 😉

I also want to mention that the Creators have been sharing a lot of Poptropica related Instagram posts lately, along with Poptropica-In-School moments, Poptropica related Tumbr posts, and more.
