CDO 10… Part 2 – Contact Us!

NOTE: This post is sticky. Scroll down for more recent posts.

About a year ago, the ATP had a Count Down of 10 (CDO 10), where we released 10 huge prizes. Because of complications we never officially announced the last update (although most of you kinda figured out that it was an email for the blog). Well, after an entire year… here it is!!!

To contact myself (Spotted Dragon) and the ATP team email us at theatpteam@adventuretimepop.com! Or visit out Contact Us Page (under About) to fill out a contact form. Now I know what you might be thinking: Why is the address at “adventuretimepop.com” instead of something like “gmail.com?” Is SD finally getting her own URL??? Yeah, um… not right now, sorry. My father is messing around with some URL stuff, so hopefully we will get our own address soon. ;) (Just don’t get your hopes up, okay?)

We would love it if you sent in things for TNPT (more on that below), for our Fan Art Page, and island guides that we don’t already have up.

Also, we haven’t had a party in a while and that just won’t work. So, I’m gonna make a deal with you guys. Once we reach 50,000 hits, we will have a huge party on Xat/Poptropica! We are currently a bit over 46,000. Please spread the word so we can have a party sooner! :D

Okay, I want to start making more issues of The New Pop Times as well. We are going to have a new “Fan Mail” article, where viewers like you can send in your artwork, stories, costumes, and more! We have a new “Ask Us” article too, where you can ask us blog/Poptropica/Adventure Time related questions! If you want us to advertise something for you or you want to answer the quiz (now called “Trivia Time”) you can either email us or comment on the most recent TNPT post. ;)

Now for the juicy stuff…

You may know that New York ComicCon has recently been up, so I found some sneak peeks of upcoming episodes that were featured at the event!

It has been so long since the last episode… I can’t wait! :D

cardIn other news, from now until Novemember 1, you can get three spooky Cartoon Network apps for $4.99 (40% off original price). Of course, you’ll get credited for any of the apps you’ve already purchased.

What Happens on Poptropica Today Ends up on Tumbr Tomorrow (Plus More!)

Hey guys! The Creators have been checking out Tumbr recently and they’ve been taking screenshots of specific posts. Check them out!

Cute! Sadly, there haven’t been any behind the scenes images for any islands. Hopefully these random sketches (made by bored creators) and this buggy video will suffice.

Cool, but you know what’s even cooler? The ATP got a shout out! :D

While on the subject of lands, here are the most recent Poptropica Land Wows!

I wonder if the Creators will keep on showing their favorite creations, even with the competition going on? :?

Anyway, there have also been some new behind the scenes images shared with us on Twitter!

I’m really liking these images! What about you guys? :)

If you’re liking this post so far, then you’ll love these funny Poptropica themed vine videos. ;)

Click here for the first video.

Click here for the second video.

Ah yes, that well known “Are you a boy or a girl” question. It has always been so difficult to answer. XD

If you have noticed, we also have a new Halloween themed header and background. What do you guys think?

If it’s too dark for you, don’t worry, the style will be changed back after October. >:) Be sure to check out our Halloween Costumes page for costume ideas for your Poptropican and feel free to send in your own creations!

In addition, if you were wondering why there hasn’t been a new issue of The New Pop Times, it is because our special AT-Pop Topics magazine! You may remember it from last year, but there has only been one issue so far. Well, we have decided to try and make one issue for every big holiday. In this case, Halloween! Realize that this is a tabloid, so you may not be able to trust everything it says. :D

Popping Lands & BTS Images – Gummy Faces & Episode Info

Hey guys, this is a quick Poptropica and Adventure Time update. Lets start with Poptropica, shall we?

The Creators have been on a behind the scenes posting spree and it is awesome. Here are the newest images that haven’t been mentioned yet.

The first picture is a early version of Dr. Lange, from Virus Hunter Island.

The second is a draft of “new characters for the re-release of Shrink Ray.” Could this mean a new Shrink Ray mini game, an update for Shrink Shot, an update for the possibly upcoming SUI version of Shrink Ray Island, just new costumes, or something else? What do you guys think?

The third is a walk through of how this sleeping dog was animated, frame by frame. It is apparently for an “upcoming (and spooky) advertisement.” There is a creepy Lockwood & Co. ad out right now, but it doesn’t seem to be referring to that.

The forth picture is a sneak peek of an upcoming Poptropica Comic.

The fifth appears to have Jorge and Oliver (from the Poptropica Comics), plus some monkeys. Could these be costumes based off the story? An island idea? A sneak peek of the comics?

The sixth and last image shows early character designs for Arabian Nights Island.

Phew, that took longer than I thought it would! :)

There are also some more Land creations that the Creators thought were worth sharing. Note that Poptropica Land has been updated to include props and objects.

I really love the pink/blue castle. Nice creations guys! :D

Now onto Adventure Time news. Cartoon Network wanted to share a cute collection of Princess Bubblegum’s different faces/expressions.

I personally like Comfy PB the best. What about you? :P

Okay, in other news, you may have noticed that there hasn’t been a new episode of Adventure Time for many, many weeks. :( Because of this, I began to suspect that the season was over, without warning. As you may know, right now we are in the 6th season of the series (which started with the episode Wake Up on April 21). I did some research on the Adventure Time Wiki and here is what I came up with.

On July 25, 2014, the series was renewed for a seventh season. According to Tom Herpich and Steve Wolfhard, the staff started to pitch story lines in late September of 2014. According to storyboard artist Jesse Moynihan, production for the season will begin in October of 2014.

Don’t be fooled, this doesn’t mean the season will start in October. It just means that it starts getting made.

The most recent episode, Joshua and Margaret Investigations (August 14), was episode 16 Season 6. Most seasons have around 20 something episodes (aside from Season 5, which was a double season), so this season shouldn’t end just yet.

I also found that the next episode is called Ghost Fly and will air on October 28 (synopsis below).

Jake and the tree house are haunted by a vengeful specter.

Why such a long wait? I have no idea. At least episodes are back on. Other upcoming episodes include Evergreen, The Mountain, and Jake the Brick, however we do not know their air dates. Their synopses are below, in order.

A wizard of ice tries to create a crown that will grant the first wearer’s​ deepest wish in order to stop a deadly comet from wiping out all life on the planet.

^ Evergreen, which takes place before the Mushroom War AND Simony and Marcy. ^

Finn tries to help the Earl of Lemongrab become a better person, but then something unexpected happens.

^ The Mountain ^

The plot for Jake the Brick is unknown.

I hope this cleared up some confusion! ;)

P.S. To see the creation of the Milk Box Head (from the BTS pictures of Poptropica above) and more inside Poptropica videos, check out this playlist made by the Creators themselves! The Milk Box Head is the second video (at the moment).

BTS Images & Info

Hey guys! This post is gonna be full of behind the scenes (BTS) images, info, etc. However, these aren’t really spoilers. Click to enlarge any images.

First off, don’t forget that Arabian Nights Island is coming out this Thrusday! For those of you who just can’t wait, the Poptropica Creators recently tweeted a picture of their Arabian Nights logo drafts.

bts island 6

I probably like the final logo the best, but the others seem pretty cool too. The Creators also shared some drafts of the actual island.

 

That’s it for Arabian Nights, but we do have another set of logo drafts! This time, for Mission Atlantis Island.

bts island 3

Some of those fonts are really cool. XD Anyway, those were all the logo drafts we found, but we do have other drafts. What would you say about island drafts? Well, apparently Water Thrill Island was going to come out, but it eventually got rejected.

Of course, many Poptropicans were wondering why this awesome idea was trashed and the Creators responded by saying…

Let’s change our wording from “rejected” to “rejected for now.” Got hundreds of ideas. Tough to choose. A juggling act.

Therefore, this island might have a chance. ;) While on the topic of unreleased islands, we should expect another Wimpy Kid Island and/or a Galactic Hot Dog Island (after PoptropiCon and Arabian Nights of course)!

bts island 7

I’m up for another Wimpy Kid. What about you guys?

bts island 8

Anyway, in conclusion to the 50th anniversary of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, the Creators have made their final post on the Roald Dahl website. Find the first post here, the second post here, and the third/final post here.

That’s all for now, hopefully we will have more BTS stuff up soon. :P
