I am afraid I bring you grave news.

Image

Jellyneo are reporting they have uncovered this vile monstrosity, potentially the 55th Neopet.

Since several colours are now available for all 54 species, the anthropomorphised panda owl turkey would give TNT an excuse to revisit paint brushes like Pirate and Faerie. They'd also have a lot of wearable items to catch up on, though.

Oh, the betting's on that this hideous original creation will be called something beginning with the letter 'V', the only letter of the alphabet not represented by the Neopet species family. A suggestion via reddit.

Quote:
"okay but what if it’s called a Vowl and its favorite thing is letters"

this would make it like 10000% cuter

Some commenters at JellyNeo are already drawing comparisons to the Petpet Park art style - could it be left-over art from Petpet Park, and if so, is it going to be recycled?

I for one hope this isn't a new Neopet, as 54 pets fit nicely in three columns of 18 and if I have to rewrite the Neodex column template for five columns there will be blood.



edit: Also, ever the voice of reason (probably), Ummy, the famed (I expect) JellyNeo staff member, raises this comparison to the design backlash:

Quote:
I remember when the Xweetok came out and people HATED IT.

Good times.

(S)he is of course quite right in berating people for judging this design too early and I would never think to disagree with them.

On a completely unrelated note,

Quote:
I do feel rather ashamed about it now. I was really, really frustrated and annoyed by years of frustration and then the whole post-sale experience. That doesn't really justify it but at least you may get where I was coming from.

Xweetok and Ogrin were my parting 'gift' to Neopets. I thought they were the most hideous pet designs and worst names I had ever heard, so I approved them...

There I said it...

I am sure someone is going to come after me now, that was my deepest darkest secret, I never told anyone other than Adam that before now...

Quoth Donna.

Thanks for the awesome info. I immediately thought of Petpet Park when I saw the design. Could it be a petpet instead of a pet?

Maybe this one is Snarkie's "goodbye" gift; if so, I look forward to an awesomely hideous name!

Blue graffitied on my signature... But it made me laugh, so it's all good!

If it was just a petpet, I doubt JN would've found such nice big pictures of it. I doubt they'll bet doing all the wearbles for it, but who knows? It's a lot of wearables for someone to be stuck going back to do, though...

I don't actually think it's tooo bad looking, but then, I do like the Xweetok (even if I hate hate hate the Ogrin). A lot of HP fans have probably been wanting some sort of Owl-type pet, anyways. It reminds me of a cross between an Oukin and a Bandalu from Petpet Park.

I do hope it has a name that starts with a 'V'...that would be cool. I'd be amused if they use parts of the petpet park names for it...Vandkin, or Voudalu, or something like that...who knows.


ETA: JN has found clothes for it now. Definitely going to be a pet.

Interesting. Very Interesting. It is a weird looking thing, indeed.

I guess 55 pets it is.

Vowl.

And its favourite thing is the alphabet.

I still haven't figured out where Jellyneo got the images from, though.

I'm assuming that the "BIGGEST news to hit Neopia in quite some time" is going to be the new pet. However, I'm very excited for the next week and a half!


...TNT made an oopsies and leaked the name:
Vandagyre


JN's post about it

TNT's made another "oopsie": according to reddit, Vandagyres can be painted Magma in the Magma Pool, but art for that colour is not available yet.
