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…

Some AdvIce, a Battle Party Leaderboard, and Snake Jake

It’s been a while since we’ve had a big Adventure Time post, so here it goes.

First off, Ice King has some more AdvIce for aspiring authors, people with growing headaches, and just people in general.

    Dear AdvIce King,
    How do I write amazing fan fiction like you?
  • September 10, 2014 2:00:00 PMAdvIce King
    Dear Z Knight,
    Sorry to burst your sparkly bubble, but you can’t! I’m the greatest fan fiction writer of our generation—probably of all time. I mean, have you read Fionna and Cake?adventuretime_IKwithFCstatues

    My secret is passion. I wrote characters so amazingly that I ended up falling in love with them. I’ll find a way to bring them to life one day. I promise! Also, good penmanship. It’s important, too.

  • January 8, 2014 7:00:25 PM
    Dear AdvIce King,
    How do get rid of my headache?

    You think YOU’VE got headache problems? Try having your nose punched in by Finn and Jake on the regular. I mean, that stings!adventuretime_finnpunchIK

    Not to mention my stanky, old wizard eyes! It’s like crazy, crazy, crazy in your face all the time.

    adventuretime_IKPOVcrazyeyes

    It’s a wonder I can even get out of bed in the morning. For the toughest headaches, I recommend applying a large block of ice to your face for 8-10 hours a day.

  • March 11, 2014 11:17:57 AM
    Dear AdvIce King,
    How do I become a better person?
  • September 10, 2014 2:00:00 PMAdvIce King
    Dear Non Ninja,
    Bettering yourself is overrated. You’re probably pretty good already.

Well… Ice King has some good advice from time to time, but I wouldn’t rely on him too much. :P

Now, you may have heard of the Adventure Time Battle Party and possibly the Tournament that has been going on. Well, a leader board has been added to the game to show the top players.

atbp_ldrbrd

Do like to party it up in these battles? Or is this game just not your fancy? Well, you can always try out Cartoon Network’s newest app instead, called Treasure Fetch!

It is basically an adventurous version of a classic snake game.

Finn and Jake are on a mission to fetch all the treasure they can! Eat apples to make Jake grow, but don’t run into your own tail. Stretch across the Grass Lands, Candy Kingdom, and Ice Kingdom to collect every last coin!

Well, I’m sad to say that that’s it for now. Yep, still no new episode, even though it’s been weeks… :(

A Jumble of Sneak Peeks

Hello everyone! Since I was not able to turn in an article for the TNPT this week, I wanted to make a post to make up for it. :) You know the drill- I post sneak peeks from Daily Pop, and include little comments/theories about each one.

Let’s start off with the most recent island announced:

anlogo

Here are some sneak peeks that I think match with this island:

open_mouth rumi_rug

close_mouth

Next island is:

con_logo

(BTW, if you haven’t already, check out the first episode of Poptropicon: Line Forms Here, now!)

collectibles comics_table costume_contest galaxy_poster gofer_con gold_face revolution_statue stan_ditko_table

I don’t know about you, but Zombie Revolution looks epic! XD

One special sneak peek caught my attention:

e_vile_statue

e-vile_caption

Do you recognize this villain, E-Vile, from the Legendary Swords mini-quest?

swords_logo

Looking at the caption, it seems like Poptropica will not be continuing with the Legendary Swords quest due to the words: “May your legend never fade.” :(

On a happier note, though this doesn’t have anything to do with islands, it looks like we might be getting furniture for Poptropica Lands! :D

What do you think of these sneak peeks? Do you have any theories? Comment below!

Thanks for reading!

TNPT Issue 37 – TMT #37

Hey guys! Before I get to this week’s issue of The New Pop Times, we have a quick announcement. Samwow5 has been removed from the team due to inactivity. He will be missed, but thankfully Silver Wolf has joined to help us out. On that note, I really need authors to post more often. I know that school has started, but that just means we have to work together even more to keep the site updated.

TNPT Issue 37 - Page 1 TNPT Issue 37 - Page 2 TNPT Issue 37 - Page 3 TNPT Issue 37 - Page 4 TNPT Issue 37 - Page 5 TNPT Issue 37 - Page 6 TNPT Issue 37 - Page 7 TNPT Issue 37 - Page 8 TNPT Issue 37 - Page 9

Well, I know a lot of articles were unavailable, but we hoped you liked it anyway. ;)

Happy Birthday Poptropica (PoptropiCon for all)!

birthday 7 other

Well, it is September and you know what that means… yep, it’s Poptropica’s birthday!!! :mrgreen: Specifically, Poptropica’s 7th birthday. In honor of the special occasion, you can now get the 7th birthday balloon in the store for free.

birthday 7

According to the PHB, Mummy and Scarecrow (Halloween) costumes were also in the Store, but don’t seem to be there anymore. However, you can fully customize those costumes in the Haunted House mini-quest. ;)

~EDIT~

Now, you can go into any common room and it will be filled with balloons. Find the special 7th Birthday Balloon, click it, and earn a special costume! In years past the costume has been cake related, but this year is a little different (in a good way). Thanks to Squeezy Wing and Pixel for the image below.

~Finish Edit~

Along with that, PoptropiCon is now out for everyone!

On a unrelated note, Jeff Heim, who is in charge of Poptropica’s soundtrack/music, released a video where he explains what he does. If you curious, you should check it out.

Plus, we have found out that his Poptropica username is jeffheim88 and his Poptropican name is Lazy Cactus. To be honest, there isn’t much to be seen, but I think he is still worth befriending.

Anyway, I’m out for now. :P

~SD

P.S. I will most likely be attending the PHB’s party this Saturday. It is in honor of Poptropica and Samwow5’s birthday (shoutout!). Be sure to visit the party to chat with me (probably) and other awesome bloggers!

Arabian Nights Announcement + Charlie, Lands, & Drawing Tips

anlogo

ancharacterWell, the big announcement has arrived (no, not relating to the CDO Part 2)! Arabian Nights Island is almost upon us, specifically episode 1 (How Bazaar).

After the forty thieves ransack his city, a desperate sultan has one request: find the thieves’ lair, and bring back his most cherished possession!

Click here to go to the Island Tour Page and get your own wallpaper, poster, and other Arabian Nights sneak peeks! :)

In other news, be sure to check out the Creators’ second post on Roald Dahl’s website, in honor of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’s 50th anniversary. It goes into a lot of the behind the scenes info of the island and more. If you haven’t read their first post, be sure to check that out as well.

Plus, the Creators have shared two more amazing Land creations.

Wow! Nice work guys! :D

Can’t get enough of Poptropica? Want to spread your love through something like… art… but need tips? Well this cool video, straight from Poptropica’s leading artists, should help you out!

Sorry guys, but that’s all we have for now. Stay poppin’! :P

A Shout-out, a Train Station, a Derpy Moment, and a Home Sweet Home

Hey everyone! I’m here to bring you a little Poptropica update, mainly from the Creators’ Twitter feed.

First off, Adventure Time Pop got a cool shout-out from the Creators! Nothing too huge, but thanks Creators! It mean a lot! :D

twitter 1

Next we have another amazing PopLand creation! This one is a train station by Skinny Sponge. (the image is not of high quality, click to enlarge)

There was also another Pop themed vine video up. Click here to watch it. #Derp

To wrap it up, Poptricka has discovered that the Poptropica app will soon have a Store! It seems to be like a “Home base” for you Poptropican. Some Daily Pops and pictures relating to in are included below.

The Bundles Shop from above is basically the store where you can buy various gold cards. The New You shop is basically a barber shop where you can customize your character. The main street looking picture includes a blue box, which is where the logo of the last island you visited will be. We do not know if these options will cost real money or not yet.

That’s all for now! ;)

P.S. Cosmoe, from recent Galactic Hot Dogs ads may be seen on Early Poptropica’s Main Street.

Survival Ep. 5 (Escape) out now for Members!

survival 2

Hey, this is just a quick post to let you guys know that Survival episode 5 (Escape), the last episode of Survival, is out now for members! There was also a rumor that PoptropiCon was coming out for nonmembers, but that rumor was sadly false.

Anyway, if you’re having trouble with the island, take a look at Captain Crawfish’s own, official, walk-through (hopefully we will have a guide up soon).

Plus, be sure to check out the Tour Page for the island’s info and extras.

survival 1

I personally enjoyed Survival’s ending. It was unique, fun, and filled with twists. I don’t want to spoil anything for you guys, so we’ll end it here.

Happy hunting running!
