I’ve recently heard a lot of rumours regarding the Blue Lei returning at this Thursday’s Teen Beach Movie Summer Jam. First there were supposed images of CP Support confirming its’ return, images in which I considered fake (due to the probability of CP Support of all people confirming an items’ return).
For those who don’t know, the Blue Lei is very, very rare neck item that was first released at the Summer Kick Off party in 2006. It then returned a year later at the 2007 Summer Kick Off party (which is when I got the item). As the item was last released 6 years ago, it as an item that many penguins have desired (though admittedly not as much as the Hawaiian Lei – also known as the Red Lei released during the Winter Lua in January 2006). Anyway, here’s a pic of Jimbobson’s Blue Lei:
Up until today I thought that CP would instead release a new coloured lei to please both older and younger players. However, the latest Game On advertisement suggested otherwise. Take a look at this screenshot from the advert:
They’re all wearing BLUE LEIS!!!! So I think this a blatant subliminal message from CP that the item will indeed be returning this Thursday. Hopefully, it will be the ‘cool beach item’ and not a Members only – as that would be very annoying. (Don’t think CP would re-release rare non-member items only for members? See Puffle Digging for details).
In conclusion, I think the return of the Blue Lei will be something many younger players will be looking forward too. I suppose it’s not all bad, it just means us rarer penguins now have to find another neck item to display our rarity! 😉
Random CP Fact #06: Rsnail, CP’s Co-Founder had initially planned for the game to be released in 2010. Billybob decided that they should fast-track CP by working on it full time (as opposed to just a few hours a week by Rsnail himself).
Until next time, Waddle on!
