Neopies - Best of 2012

Introduction

The Neopies (pronounced nee-oh-peeas) continue in 2013, now looking back on 2012. Keeping the format of the previous year, the Fifth Annual Neopies . Every day a New Category is released until they're all out. Each category lasts 3 days and you can send in your votes once daily. The "Finalists" are still chosen by The Neopets Team, again, probably by using a Nominee Dart Board, and you get to choose the winner! Remember, voting every day gets you a special prize.

Finalists and Winners

Best Heard Around the Office (January 8th - January 11th)

Kid Hawk

Dragona

Mr. Insane

Viola/DJ Skellington
"We don't have time to be hilarious." "My lack of memory is amazing. I sent myself an email to remind me of something, and about .6 seconds later I get an email and get excited and look to see what it is." "(╯?□?)╯︵ ǝıʞɹɐus" Viola: "Poogle butts!"

DJ Skellington: "So that's what you look at all day."
Winner

Dragona
Best Revamp (January 10th - January 13th)

Games Room Revamp

Battledome Revamp

Dailies Revamp

Roo Island Revamp
Despite triggering an infestation of bugs that (temporarily) consumed Roo Island, the launch of the Games Room's new look turned out to be a smashing success in the end. After a much-lamented hiatus, the Battledome returned with all-new animated attacks and arenas, as well as rewards for battling that included items and Neopoints. Throughout the latter half of the past year, many of Neopia's dailies received makeovers and had the prizes that they give out substantially overhauled. While everyone else was attempting to rid Roo Island of bugs, King Roo's royal decorators were giving the land a makeover that included lots of interesting new additions.
Winner

Battledome Revamp

Best NC Mall Wearable (January 12th - January 15th)

Midnight Frost Background

Mystical Genie Trousers

Shell Coif Wig

Nurse Lucy Skeleton
That foreboding chill that you're feeling isn't just the weather... Made from the finest silk, these trousers are worth using one of your three wishes... Contrary to rumour, you can't actually hear the ocean when you put it on... Too many nights on the graveyard shift, apparently...
Winner

Midnight Frost Background
Best New Neopet Colour (January 13th - January 16th)

Robot Bruce

Wraith Techo

Maraquan Tonu

Mutant Lutari
It appears this one's days of rink running are over... Just because Xandra's no longer a threat doesn't mean this look is any less menacing... This blend of blue and green looks great whether you're navigating the ocean floor or relaxing poolside... Want your Lutari to look like its been freshly pummeled by a raging storm? This may be the look for you!
Winner

Mutant Lutari
Best News Day (January 14th - January 17th)

Wraith Day

12 April (REAL Negg Faerie dialogue)

Annual Chocolate Ball

10 Year Anniversary of Discovery of Meridell
8th Day of Awakening (February 8th) - This day not only saw the debut of the highly-coveted Wraith Paint Brush, but it also marked the return of Daily Faerie Quests! 12th Day of Eating (April 12th) - Today's news featured an appearance by the "REAL" Negg Faerie, who spent time earlier in the day with the Negg Faerie's assistant, discussing that mysterious journal of hers. 15th/16th Day of Gathering (September 15th/16th) - To the chagrin of the swamp gas Techos that were not allowed to attend, this year's Chocolate Ball was a lavish celebration of all things chocolate-flavoured... 28th/29th Day of Swimming (July 28th/29th) - The celebration of Meridell's discovery was a right royal affair, with regal new looks for Lutaris, new Grumpy Old King prizes, and the debut of a Skarl-themed weapon.
Winner

Wraith Day
Best New Paint Brush (January 15th - January 18th)

Elderly - Get Off My Lawn Paint Brush

Stealthy - Stealth Paint Brush

Dimensional - Dimensional Paint Brush

Eventide - Eventide Paint Brush
"When I was your age, we had to walk barefooted and uphill - both ways - just to get to the Rainbow Pool..." "How anyone could dress so fancifully yet still make their way around Neopia without being spotted was a mystery to all..." "One day, science will perhaps be able to explain the awesomeness of this paint brush style. Today, however, is not that day." "Eventide is often referred to as 'the magic hour,' which is understandable, as anyone who's ever seen a Neopet in this style can attest to its magical beauty..."
Winner

Stealth Paint Brush
Best NC Mall Mystery Capsule (January 16th - January 19th)

Haunted Asylum Mystery Capsule

Tale of Woe Mystery Capsule

Shining Star Gift Box Mystery Capsule

Shining Star Gift Box Mystery Capsule
Right before Halloween, this eerie ensemble's background, contacts, and straightjacket allowed Neopets to dress as a tortured soul trapped in a dingy madhouse. Festive! Released as part of the History Capsule Adventure, this Neovian-themed capsule included Krawley Contacts, the Nurse Lucy foreground, and the lovely Young Sophie's Dress. Released back in February, this mystery capsule gave out items with a value of 200 NC or more and featured the Shining Star Gift Box as a limited edition bonus item. Arriving with a flourish in April, this mystery capsule's bonus items were the Potted Plants Foreground, Spring Garden Bouquet, and Nostalgic Spring Picnic Background.
Winner

Shining Star Gift Box Mystery Capsule
Best Species Specific Wearable (January 17th - January 20th)

Festive Bori

Fantastic Ixi

Programmer Grundo

Arid Ruki
Any Bori that sports this festive ensemble is sure to be the belle of the ball, as this eye-catching dress, shoes, parasol, and wig combo is a definite attention-getter? Featuring a cloak that's rugged enough for adventure and a robe made of delicate silk and golden fabric, this is ideal for the dashing explorer with impeccable taste? For the Grundo who desires a suitably professional look that's also comfortable enough to wear while coding for hours on end. Coffee and sweat stains sold separately. This outfit manages to be handsome, some would even say stylish, while providing the protection needed for long journeys in harsh, arid climates like much of the Lost Desert.
Winner

Fantastic Ixi
Best New Avatar (January 18th - January 21st)

Assignment 53

Neopocalypse

Neggbreaker

Rubbish
Only the most accomplished intergalactic travellers will have the moxie needed to qualify for this challenging avatar. Do you have what it takes to be a boss? This past February, the Neopets site was temporarily waylaid by technical difficulties. Those who lived to tell of this great catastrophe were rewarded with an avatar. This avatar commemorates the debut of the notorious Neggbreaker in the wake of the Clockwork Negg puzzle's solution. While the method for getting this avatar remains a mystery, it's believed to have something to do with cleaning out one?s Safety Deposit Box. There's only one way to find out?
Winner

Neopocalypse
Best Species Specific Wearable (January 19th - January 22nd)

Illusens Collectors Contacts

Fyoras Collectors Dress

Hansos Collectors Wig

Moltara Foreman Collectors Wings
Released as part of the Questing Faeries' Finest Collection in early June, this set of green contacts was modelled after the eyes of Meridell's favourite earth faerie? Also part of the Questing Faeries' Finest Collection, this May debut was your Neopet's opportunity to sport Queen Fyora's iconic purple gown. August's release for the Daring Duos collection was Hanso's Collector's Wig, which allowed the Ixi thief's admirers to sport his effortlessly stylish hairdo. The NC Mall started off the year in impressive fashion with these wings, which came out in January as part of the Famous Dailies Collection?
Winner

Fyoras Collectors Dress
Best Neopoint Wearable (January 20th - January 23rd)

Spooky Foreground

Shenkuu Doors

Misty Shenkuu Background

Translucent Pink Wings
While this foreground is harrowing enough to send chills up the spine of the most savvy adventurer, they can at least take comfort in the knowledge that they aren't alone? One way to make a good impression is with a grand entrance. Presenting your Neopet as though they're stepping through these ornate doors is sure to impress? Don't worry, standing high up in the mountains of Shenkuu won't make your Neopet feel lightheaded? to be safe, though, they might not want to stand so close to the edge. These wings are so thin that, yes, you can actually see through them. Make no mistake, though - as anyone who's worn them can attest, they are of the finest quality.
Winner

Translucent Pink Wings
Best Neopoint Item (January 21st - January 24th)

Unidentified Petpetpet

Snow Naleap

Wrawk the Merciless Plushie

Frozen Cyodrake Shield
Drawn to the sound created by the new Games Room, these pesky Petpetpets infested Roo Island and things didn't return to normal until they left. A few managed to find homes, however? Though this beloved Petpet might seem like it'd be more at home on Terror Mountain than on Shenkuu, its melodious tones are welcome throughout Neopia. Neopia's favourite bitter Kiko sorcerer has been immortalised in plushie form, and as a result this plushie's acquisition has become many collectors' true goal? Ever since turning up in the Smuggler's Cove at the start of the year, this stout shield has been fending off fire-based attacks with aplomb.
Winner

Unidentified Petpetpet
Let Us Never Speak of This Again (January 22nd - January 25th)

April Fools' Lab Ray

Habitarium

Lenny Conundrum

Neggbreaker Error
When the lab ray began "misfiring" at Neopets that were not its intended targets on April Fools', many Neopians (especially owners of unconverted Neopets) started to panic. One night, for no apparent reason, everyone's Habitariums were reset back to Level One. Oh well, think of it this way - imagine all the NP you'll make starting from scratch! Between keyword searches that didn't work so well and prize-awarding scripts that seemingly stopped for no reason, it's been an "interesting" year for the Lenny Conundrum? During the Festival of Neggs, defeating the Neggbreaker with the magic amulet was supposed to be worth 10 points. Instead, due to a glitch, it was worth 100,000 points.
Winner

April Fools' Lab Ray
Best NC Accompaniment (January 23rd - January 26th)

Festival of Neggs

Daily Dare

Battledome: NC Claw

Games Master Challenge
This year's Festival of Neggs introduced The "Real" Negg Faerie, whose use of Handy Negg Enlargers to increase the size of mini plastic Neggs instead resulted in nifty prizes. Neopians earned NC items as they guided Lulu in her search for King Roo and then used Bug Hunt Nets to rid Roo Island of its purple P3 infestation. As part of the Battledome's return, the Faerie Element Battledome Claw became available, allowing those who use it to take NC items from one-player challengers. Lulu returned once more, but instead of picking clean the rooms of her cousins AAA and Abigail, she raided the living quarters of Cap'n Threelegs and the Techo Master.
Winner

Festival of Neggs
Best Site Event (January 24th - January 27th)

Altador Cup

Daily Dare

Masks of Dread

Festival of Neggs
For the first time, a tie for 2nd place resulted in a one day playoff between Meridell and Mystery Island. The top spot, however, was won decisively by Team Kreludor. This year's Daily Dare event coincided with the release of the new Games Room, which didn't go quite exactly as planned. In the end, though, your game plays saved the day! Saskia and her cart returned to the Haunted Woods for another round of mask-modelling quests. Were you among those who earned all six masks before she left? In addition to Kari's usual Negg Hunt, this year featured the debut of the "Real" Negg Faerie and the discovery of a mysterious journal by The Negg Faerie's assistant, Zaira.
Winner

Daily Dare
Best New BD Challenger (January 25th - January 28th)

Neggbreaker

S750 Kreludan Defender Robot

Neopets V2

Giant Spectral Mutant Walein
This massive Hasee was a relative pushover at first (at least, for those with the Ancient Negg Amulet), but since the Festival of Neggs has become much more difficult to beat. Best known for guarding the Kreludor Mining Corp., this intimidating android has gone from keeping you out of the mines to keeping you from victory in the Battledome. It appears that Neopets V2?s idea of playing is now a friendly tussle in the Battledome. Just because he enjoys your company doesn?t mean he?ll let you win, though? This monosyllabic mutant Petpet comes equipped with a cache of Maractite weapons and a mean streak as wide as Maraqua?s famed Bubbling Pit.
Winner

Neggbreaker
