The info page for PoptropiCon Island has now been released. Here’s the description:
Everyone is dressed up for the biggest sci-fi and fantasy convention in Poptropica. At PoptropiCon, the most important thing isn’t what you do — it’s how you look doing it!
The island will be split into four episodes, starting with Episode 1: Line Forms Here:
PoptropiCon is the hottest ticket in town. It’ll take all your wits — and more than a few disguises — to crash the party!
Sounds like fun! From this wallpaper, we can infer that you’ll be able to enter a cosplay contest and watch the trailer for an Avengers/Justice League/Guardians of the Galaxy ripoff called Mighty Action Force.
As usual, members will get a free gear pack, this time including cosplay for characters from Lunar Colony and Game Show Island.
Members will also receive a printable poster featuring their avatar front and center.
As of today, Poptropica members can play the final installment in the Mission Atlantis trilogy. Also, Survival: Cabin Fever is available for everyone to play. It looks like there’s going to be one more episode after this, making Survival Island a total of five episodes long.
To celebrate the release of Mission Atlantis: Out of the Blue, everyone (not just members, everyone!) can now get a FREE Atlantis Captain costume from the Poptropica store.
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:

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.
