Mega Fighting Squirrels?

What’s up guys? While cruising through Night Watch Island, I found a new advertisement building for the upcoming movie The Nut Job. You can also find the building on some other islands including Back Lot, Virus Hunter, and Mocktropica.

Once you enter the building talk to the grey squirrel, Surly, standing beside the door. He will tell you that he has a new sure fire plan to get the nuts. Your instructions are to use a nut catapult to shoot the nuts over to Surly the squirrel. This can get really tricky, but do your best to launch the nuts while the catapult is just perfectly in the green area of the base.


Once you launch ten nuts into the bag you win! You receive two prizes, the Surly Power and the Pistachio Costume!


The Surly Power shows a little cut screen of Surly dropping down to steal a nut on ropes and pulleys Mission: Impossible style! The Pistachio Costume is just what it looks like, a big Pistachio that you can walk around in all day PSY style. Squirrels?

Lastly, there is a new piece of news on the PCB. They realize that we may have seen through their little Mega Fighting Bot ruse pretty quickly, but that doesn’t mean that they love those little bots any less! You can now find some Mega Fighting Bots extras on the Mocktropica Info page, their very own wallpaper and poster! You can find the wallpaper here and the printable poster here. They also promised that the Mega Fighting Bots themed Members Only Bonus Quest is coming soon, so stay on the look out for a new bonus quest featuring some fighting robots!

Some monstrous new Daily Pops!

The mystery of Monster Carnival Island continues to thicken with some new posts that have made their way onto the Daily Pop! Are these monsters our newest sneak peak for Monster Carnival, or is there another new island brewing bellow the surface? Check out these Daily Pop posts and make the decision!


The first picture shows us a tree with some evil looking owls in it, so what? The important part are the streamers and flags that are seen, is this a festive scene? Festive like a carnival? The rest just show various monsters.  The first two show a metal faced bird, a taxidermy  Jackalope, and multi-eyed dinosaur dog. The last picture shows an evil looking toxic waste monster.
It should be noted that the last two pictures are similar in that the monsters are labeled with numbers. Are these exhibits to go and see on Monster Carnival Island?


So what do you think? Are these our first official look at the Monsters of Monster Carnival Island or something totally new, only time will tell!
