Transformers Monopoly board game: collector’s edition

Transformers Monopoly board game: collector’s edition is going to be available in May 2007. I wonder how they ranked the transformers. Obviously Optimus Prime and Megatron would be Park Place and Boardwalk. But where would Soundwave rank on the board? Even though Bumblebee should have a lower value property, I betcha they put him as one of those green properties.

I just hope they feature the G1 Transformers. The cover of the gamebox certainly implies that. However, I wouldn’t be surprised if the gameboard was centered around the character designs from the 07 movie. Parker Brothers is going to have a serious problem on their hands if Optimus and Megatron aren’t Boardwalk and Park Ave. I could see them making Bumblebee a yellow property cuz he’s yellow. I wonder if they will group certain properties by class of transformers. For example all the red could be the decepticon airplanes. I eagerly await the arrival of this boardgame. It’ll be great fun to see who is what property.

i’d also prefer to see them in robot mode. But they will probably mix it up and make it inconsistent. If they put this board design in the hands of a really creative designer, I bet they could have a really tripped out board. I have a feeling there won’t be any rhyme or reason to who is what property. So the railroads will just be a random collection. If it were up to me, I would have Soundwave’s cassettes as the railroads. They were always unique unto themselves as the railroad properties are in Monopoly. Constructicons would be good too. I’m just a big fan of Soundwave.

You never know who is reading these posts…I worked on the game. I’m a huge fan and tried to merge the Transformers Universe and Monopoly in the most creative way to best represent the two Brands. There are no elements from the new movie. Based entirely on the Cartoons and Comics. We went back and forth and decided on locations for the properties over characters. Monopoly is a real estate trading game after all. However I think you will be very pleased with the Chance and Chest Cards (Autobot and Decepticon Cards). Each features a character and the Directive (Text) is hidden by a similar pattern that the old G1 toys had on the back of the packaging for the characters abilities. The Game comes with a decoder (like the red strip in the old toys) For reading the directive which will correlate with the character featured on the card. The Tokens look fantastic as well. There are also some alternate rules of game play that will be based on which Token you choose (autobot or decepticon) I think the fans will be pleased with the game. And just to let everyone know, the Four Corners are not allowed to be manipulated, therefore they are the same as the classic game. It’s a legal thing…should be in stores soon!
