    That's really cool.

    Even though I have quite a few Transformers board games already, including Monopoly, I still think this would be pretty neat to own.

    Maybe someday. Love the pieces that are included.

    If you want a Transformers Monopoly game that doesn't cost 600 dollars, they did make a different one back in 2007/2009. The art in the new one is great, but using locations in the old version instead of characters is a much better idea.

    I'd expect better than aluminum for $600.

    The drawings in the four corners. Hasbro charges licensees, like, $100 each to allow them to be changed from the standard, non-Transformer-y graphics. True. He tell me.

    Wait a minute, that only accounts for $400, plus an expected price of around $50....

    Never mind. I got nothin'.

    Not gonna justify the $600 price tag (which is :lol ), but it looks like 4 sides and whatever the game is incased in is some diecast contraption that folds out so each player has their own money/property holder, than can fold back up to seal up the game and all of its components. Which is a cool idea.

    Just in direct comparison to the one that came out a few years back and retailed for $35, and had those fun rubylith scan gimmicks for all the chance cards and stuff, I really have no idea how they think this can retail for $600 haha.

    Maybe would be a cool gift in the $60-100 range.

    Masterpiece Monopoly.

    They probably only have to sell a single one to make a profit.

    So I could get this for $600, the old one from amazon for $86 or wait for the inevitable release after TLK comes out.

    I want those little player pieces!  But for $600 they can eat crow.  Someone needs to inform this company that family game nights are dead...and they were never worth $600 b/c Monopoly just caused fights haha

    For 600, the pieces could have been 6 brand new legend size transformable figures. Oh, and that would still be to much.

    Some of the pairings are good but then some make no sense.  Hot Rod, Sunstreaker & Cliffjumper?  Other then being Autobots, not much of a connection.  Same with a Constucticon, Galvatron & someone else?  All Decepticons but no other connection. (Should be Galvatron, Scourge & Cyclonus)

    Like others, i have the TF Monopoly from a few years ago. I\'m fine with that.

    I am sure a Shapeways modeler can make those a. at a cheaper price and b. even better looking. Couple that with a 25 dollar Transformers Monopoly set from Ebay and you basically
    have the same as this, but at least 500 dollars cheaper.
