It's also been going around that there will be a new aquatic villain called Tritannus!

Rainbow at MIP COM with Season 5 Poster

Poster from Winx Club Episodios

If you will remember correctly from an article posted by La Reppublica in October 2010, Straffi mentioned, "…The Winx will confront the oil catastrophe in New Orleans…" (Translated by the Oblivious Prattler.)

By my guess (and by looking at the sea shell tiara on Bloom's head), there will be an underwater theme to the new transformation!

MIP COM is an annual media expo much like the Las Vegas Licensing Expo. MIP COM will be held from October 3 to 6, 2011 in Cannes, France and Rainbow will have a booth (booth R33.01). (Rainbow is a confirmed exhibitor for MIP COM.)

Oh my God, this is exciting!

(However, do not discount the possibility that this might some really good fanart with some really good research. Until further notice, I'm considering this official.)

HalloWinx

If you haven't heard from Una di noi already, Rainbow is going to make a special series of Halloween themed dolls called HalloWinx! These dolls will also come with a goth-ified version of their fairy pets. Three minute special episodes and a videogame will also be released in tandem with this series.

This is what the dolls will look like:


The premise for this doll line is that the Winx are dressing up to look like witches to find out what the Trix's evil plans are.

Three special comics, also known as Monster Missions, will also be released featuring three of the Winx fighting horror movie monsters. The first comic will feature Flora (with a sword!) fighting a werewolf; Bloom against a vampire and Stella against a mummy.

Winx Comics at H & J for 15¢ to 1$

H & J Liquidators and Closeouts, Inc is selling the first and second issue of the Winx Club comic for 15¢. These are the comics were translated in English for the 4kids franchise which explains why there is a 4kids logo on the cover. However, there is a catch: H & J sells their products in bulk and so you must buy a minimum of 100 issues of either the first or second issue. They will not let you buy the comics individually.

Also, they are selling the third issue together with a paquet of six Winx Club trading card game cards for 1$ but a minimum purchase of 50 units is required.

Liliana Mumy might voice Roxy

According to Molly Quinn on her Facebook page, Liliana Mumy might voice Roxy. This is not a confirmation for Roxy's voice actor as Quinn only "believes" that it might be Mumy.

Liliana Mumy is an American actress who has played in movies such as Cheaper by the Dozen as well as voiced characters in Cartoon Network's Chowder and Madge in Howl's Moving Castle.

Nolstagic Feelings Arising

So I've watched the movies so far released by Nickelodeon and every scene just evokes a well of nolstagia. I wished that they had reanimated each and every episode. What about you, guys? How do you feel so far about the movies already released and what do you think the next movie will be like?

English Winx Magazines at Pelican

English Winx Club magazines can be purchased at Pelican for under 4$ USD from Singapore. They only have about six magazines up but I'm guessing that there will be more posted as time goes on. They also don't correspond to the original Italian order but at least they are translated.

New Updates On World of Winx!

If you haven't already played World of Winx, the new Nickelodeon game, it's a great time to. The game has expanded from a quick one-round easy puzzle into a multi-setting adventure and strategy game.

Players choose between Bloom, Stella, Flora, Musa, Aisha, and Techna (name misspelling or new spelling?). Once they've selected the character, they can then pick either Charmix or Enchantix form, with Believix coming soon. For the last step, select your setting: outside Alfea College, the Alfea Library, the City of Magix, or the Black Mud Swamp. Two more settings are to be released on September 15!

Race and cast spells to get to Stella's staff, earning points. Sounds easy? Sorry. It's a surprisingly hard game that will exercise your brain. It took me a couple hours to win the Alfea stages, and now I'm struggling over the new additions! But it's very fun.

So, what are you waiting for? Go play!
