    that looks cool...$600? Nope. Seriously they missed the right price point for something like this by alot.I hope they do not have many made up as they are not gonna get a lot of takers.

    I would love to get this.  Lol, but not for $600.  I hope that\'s a typo.  $60 would work

    Meh. It doesn't look that bad but only $50 maybe $60. $600. Good luck. So a Costco or Sams club close out sale then?

    Lol, would be about the same to buy 6 masterpieces and use the mini figurines as monopoly pieces.

    Hmmmm actually, I think I may track down those figurines and do this, lol. I'll be fine with the regular board.

    It's aluminum. Which makes the $600 even more of a joke. Sneeze on it and it'll dent.

    I\'d definitely get it if it wasn\'t for the price, what the hell are they thinking? Does it come with money too?

    Even $100 is still overpriced but at least I\'d understand that if it was an exclusive. What the hell?

    I have the simple Transformers Monopoly game. Too bad no one likes to play. Well it isn't my wife's favorite game, and my daughters aren't old enough to grasp it yet ...

    The price tag. :p 

    Seriously though, I cannot see anything that justifies that price. I'll just stick with my other G1-themed Monopoly set, thanks.

    First the Unicron statue, and now this. I know being a Transformer fan is an expensive venture, but yeesh!

    $60 for Monopoly? WHY? :lol  Haven't you played it before? SPOILER: it's not that great! ;) 
    I can: COLLECTORS. ARE. SUCKERS.

    Cause that's the strategy: prey on those collectors with OCD and poor investment skills.

    Crap like this makes me furious. It's robbery. And yeah, I can be angry: the type of person who will buy this can have a kind of mental impairment that makes him a victim of snake oil! :mad 

    But all of that aside... the art is kind of weak, no? I don't know why they didn't just go with the G1 box art! That would've sold better, imo. But again, this isn't so much an idea as much as it is a criminal enterprise to extract money from foolish collectors. Seriously. Oh what? You can hang it?!? F*CK. Well, then scratch everything I just said: there's the value! :D

    This must be a joke, right? I know it was mentioned on the front page as legit news, the price is pretty laughable. Seriously?!

    Me too.. I have the G1 (2) and the Movies chess set too. Never opened either.

    But IF I were to win this one... I'd take it! :D
