I just played the Marvel Monopoly game Saturday. If it's anything like that then the spaces will be the high-profile TF's like Prime, Megatron, Shockwave, and then have some factions like the Dinobots and Insecticons.
Looks like I'm buying me a Monopoly game.

It doesn't get much clearer than that, without them actually naming Marvel and Sunbow in the press release. I think Monopoly qualifies as something directed more at the nostalgia market (like Optimash Prime and the plush figures) so it's only sensible to assume it'll be based around the sterling work of Floro Dery and Uncle Bob Budiansky.
TRANSFORMERS MONOPOLY! WOO!

That was actually featured at Toyfair but I have no idea what universe it is in and any details of it, I was only told about the Monopoly set.

I'm looking forward to this...normally I don't buy all the Monopoly versions except for the new MegaMonopoly version (has 12 additional spaces, 9 properties, and you can build skyscrapers!), but I'm definitely in for this one. With this in production, how long will it be before TF Trivial Pursuit? Stratego?

The movie head sculpts may keep me from jumping in on too much of the merchandise, but trying to be open minded till I see the flick.

I hate to break it to you, but...Unicron is a CHARACTER. He transforms readily and could never be a Risk planet.
