USAopoly has sent has a new image of their upcoming licensed Transformers edition of Monopoly. As you can see from the image below, it is clearly a G1-based game which makes heavy use of the Dreamwave artwork from the past few years. It also looks like the game pieces are the following characters: Optimus Prime, Megatron, Starscream, Soundwave, Jazz (?) and Bumblebee (?).

UPDATE: I just received a 2nd email from USAopoly confirming that this game will be available at specialty shops at the end of April. Specialty shops include stores such as Spencer Gifts or other similar stores or game stores (like the ones in U.S. shopping malls).

    now I'll buy that! Glad to see a resurgence of the G1 characters we know & love along side the new.

    Because of the... shall we say "complex" movie designs, I don't think they would make for very good tiny figures. (Too many little pieces hanging off & not enough large car parts.) These figures and the art look great.

    I might pick it up to have another board game other than Chess and Battleship hanging around.

    The Go To Jail picture should be Hot Rod and Kup in Manacles. And the In Jail should be Hot Rod grabbing the bars. I'm not trying to sound like a hater, I just don't think that classic Monopoly symbols belong in the board.

    Assuming I can afford this, I might pick it up.

    Glad to see they used locations for the properties rather than characters.

    That's more like it! Shame Megatron looks like he's skipping on the board :)

    I can just about make out the figurines. Prime, Megatron, Starscream, Jazz... Soundwave and Bumblebee? Nifty.

    Now I'd buy that.
    As long as it's not much more than your average monopoly (hopefully £30 max), I'll buy it and treasure it!

    That can not be done. The Corner Squares are part of the Monopoly Trademark and can not be changed. All of the Special Edition Monopoly games that have been issued over the years have the same thing. Only slight modifications are made to the GO Corner if the theme uses something other than US Dollars. The Best Example I know of is the Star Wars Monopoly has the Credit Symbol insted of the Dollar Sign. And that is it.

    Didn't know that. Kind of a stupid rule, no? I find it really ruins the mood. Why have a human cop from decades ago when Prowl could be there aiming his rifle? Oh well...

    I agree, the go to jail ect doesn't really fit in, but I'll get it anyway.

    Shame they didn't give us a more zoomed in pic really, would like to see what the squares are.

    Looks cool. Probably gonna cost a small fortune to us brits though if its only gonna be released in specialty shops in the states.

    And I'd say that's Prowl, not Jazz

    I wonder if there will be a "Space Bridge" or something that lets you warp to the other side of the board....

    Nah!!

    So what will be "Boardwalk"?? Cybertron perhaps??

    If anything, the Railroads would be Space Bridges, though I don't think you are able to ride them.
