Woo-hoo! The Comic Con island that’s been teased in the Daily Pop finally has a name and a logo (and a pretty good one, I might add!). The real Comic Con is already running in San Diego right now, so I guess the Creators thought that now would be the best time to make the big announcement.
I can’t wait for Poptropicon Island to be released. This will be the first time in Poptropica’s history that you’ll be able to smash through walls with Thor’s hammer while dressed in cheap wizard cosplay, and that’s definitely something to be excited about:
The Poptropica Ultimate Sticker Collection has over 1,000 reusable stickers, along with some never-before-released Poptropica trivia (For example, did you know that the mayor of 24 Carrot Island’s full name is Mayor McTeague?). Click the link below to order it from Amazon:
Ultimate Sticker Collection: Poptropica (ULTIMATE STICKER COLLECTIONS)
Mission Atlantis: Fortress of the Deep is available to everyone!
In honor of Germany’s victory at the 2014 World Cup, all Poptropicans can now get a FREE Football Fever costume at the Poptropica store!
Pressing the spacebar makes you flip the football into the air, just like the other soccer player costume in the store.
This picture of a food truck was recently posted on the Creator’s Blog. It looks like it’s going to be part of the Comic Con Island that I mentioned a few weeks ago:
In other, non-Poptropica news, you can now pre-order the ninth book in the Wimpy Kid series, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul, on Amazon.
And while we’re on the subject, I recently discovered that the Book Nook on Wimpy Boardwalk Island hasn’t been updated since 2012:
Hopefully the Creators are going to fix that up soon…
Last year, the Creators built a LEGO model of Dr. Hare’s Lair and put it on LEGO CUUSOO (now called LEGO Ideas). It never became an actual set, but, as I predicted, other Poptropica-themed projects have already been uploaded to LEGO Ideas, including this one depicting the final boss battle from the Legendary Swords miniquest:
Neat, huh? I always thought that Legendary Swords was one of Poptropica’s most underrated quests. I bet that this project already has a load of supporters now, especially since it was featured on the Creator’s Blog…
WHAT? ONLY 18 SUPPORTERS? THIS PROJECT NEEDS NINE THOUSAND, NINE HUNDRED AND EIGHTY-TWO MORE VOTES BEFORE IT CAN EVEN BE CONSIDERED AS AN ACTUAL LEGO SET! IS THIS THE BEST YOU CAN DO, PEOPLE? GET ON OVER TO LEGO IDEAS RIGHT NOW AND CAST YOUR VOTE!
On a side note, early access to Survival: Cabin Fever will be available to members next Thursday, July 17. Mission Atlantis: Fortress of the Deep will be available for everyone the same day.
If you haven’t been keeping up with the Daily Pop lately, you’ve missed a lot of cool stuff. Over at the Sneak Peeks section, it appears that a Comic Con-themed island is in the works! For those who don’t know, Comic Con is an event that takes place every July in San Diego, and it’s a place for comic book artists, television show producers, and even toy manufacturers to showcase and exhibit their latest works. It attracts about 130,000 visitors every year. So yeah, it’s pretty popular.
What can we expect from an island that’s based on the biggest geek event of all time? Well, besides all of the cheeky references to Star Wars and Lord of the Rings that we’ll obviously be seeing (recent islands like Night Watch have had a lot of parodies and references in them), we lucky players are going to be treated to…
Convention centers! Note the sawed-in-half ‘Convention Center’ sign at the bottom of the picture.
Cosplay! Many visitors attend Comic Con dressed as their favorite comic or movie character.
Steampunk cosplay! That’s a division of cosplay where people dress in a blend of Victorian-era clothing and futuristic gadgetry.
Viking cosplay! That’s exactly what it sound like.
Insanely long waiting lines to the restroom! We’re talking about 130,000 visitors a year here.
Are you excited about Comic Con Island? I know I am!
In exactly one month, Poptropica will be releasing their latest book: Ultimate Sticker Collection! The book will contain over 1,000 reusable stickers and fun facts about the world of Poptropica. You can already preview a page and pre-order the book on Amazon:
