Directly from the Javits Convention Center showroom floor at New York Toy Fair 2017, site owner Seibertron has posted a gallery of an extremely limited premium edition set of Transformers Monopoly. Winning Solutions, a premium games company that has collaborated with Hasbro in the past, is working with the Transformers brand team to produce a high-end, G1-themed edition of one of America's oldest board games. Previous premium games from Winning Solutions include popular games such as Monopoly, Clue and Scrabble.

At first glance, the set appears to be framed artwork - suitable for hanging thanks to a friction locking system - featuring a laser etched aluminum 'frame' with classic robotic detailing, and The Transformers: The Movie inspired art by Marcelo Matere. The frame unfolds to become players' money and property trays, revealing a sleek Monopoly board with touches designed to entice fans' sensibilities:

  • Traditional Monopoly properties represented by classic Transformers characters
  • Houses & Hotels represented by teal & pink Energon cubes, respectively
  • Custom money and Chance/Community Chest cards
  • Diecast player tokens, including: Megatron (Gun mode), Soundwave (Walkman mode), Starscream (Vehicle mode), Hot Rod (Vehicle mode), Grimlock (Dinosaur mode), Optimus Prime (vehicle mode), Matrix of Leadership, and Unicron (planet mode).

While many details are as of yet unconfirmed and subject to change, Winning Solutions projects an early summer 2017 release date, with a prospective run of 500 sets and suggested retail price of $499. Additionally, each set will likely be hand-numbered and possibly signed by artist Marcelo Matere.

I hope the diecast pieces look better in person and have more detail because those do not look impressive. I think I'd rather just play monopoly with legends class figures.

I'm surprised they didn't put an enormous orange safety plug on the end of that Megatron token. :roll:

8th piece is Grimlock. Go to their site and look at the third pic, you can hover over them and enlarge them. Grimmy is on the left side on the spot below the Decepticon insignia.
