    I found this thread over at TFArchive.com.

    http://www.tfarchive.com/community/showthread.php?s=&threadid=36980

    The user known as TransformersMonopoly is an employee of USAopoly, a company that works in conjunction with Hasbro to create liscensed games off of different shows, movies, and companies such as the NFL, Nintendo, the Simpsons, ect. He is looking for help on creating a new Transformers themed Monopoly game. I encourage anyone who is a member of that board to redirect him to here. There are plenty of people here who would love to help out.

    That would be fun.

    The Railroads would be the Space Bridge!

    Although I can't think of enough properties to fill a Monopoly board from G1...

    id rather the spots be actual places in the TF universe, not transformers themselves

    kinda lame



    "yeah, ill buy that optimus from ya. oooh! look! you landed on omega supreme! you owe me $100 rent!"

    eh

    id rather like Iacon to be in place of boardwalk, Charr to be one one of the lower end properties, Autobot City, smelting pools. the space bridge in place of the railroads would be kinda cool

    stuff like that

    leave the characters to the actual game pieces and utilize them on the cards and stuff. not put them in the place of properties

    but i guess thems be just my gripes

    Yeah, that is totally lame.

    I guess we can't complain. No matter how lame TF monopoly is... it is still the TF brand and hasbro knows we buy that crap.

    I wonder what series it will be based on since Cybertron is over. I doubt it would be G1.

    I agree that the spaces should be actual places in Transformers history. How can you land on a Transformer? :confused: 

    I can't see them making it that way though. If they want to market this to enough people then they will go with names of Transformers. More people know who Optimus Prime is then know what Iacon is unfortunately.

    Doesn't anyone think that this is maybe a little shady? If there really was a Transformers Monolpoly game being developed, history has shown that they probably would not reach out to the fan community - and even if they did, would they go to TFArchive? Wouldn't they come here... or at least Allspark?

    dam ignorant people

    :p 


    *edit*
    and no. them posting on tfarchive wouldnt make them any less legit than posting here or the allspark

    they arent the only transformer communities on the web


    and what would be wrong with a Transformers Monopoly game?
    what with the movie coming out next summer they'll want to capitalize on it [they're expecting a summer blockbuster. and if people like the movie it will motivate them to buy other transformers themed products. I know when star wars came out i was on a star wars high. bought lots of star wars toys, i own a bunch of star wars video games, i bought a star wars monopoly game]

    it'll sell. so its not silly. just a smart move to make some more money

    Well, after reading that crap about the places being characters, I'll be passing for certain.
    If they used the Cybertron cartoon , to cough up enough properties to fill the board, I'd buy it, but using character as places/properties.
    Lame
    Just lame. :(

    I didn't get that he meant the places were TFs, but that the "buildings" were TFs.. instead of hotels and houses... maybe I read it wrong.

    that would make a bit more sense [though still kind of lame IMO]


    theres no way they would need a list of 105 characters for just 30 slots on the board that were places you could land on [but then he did say stuff like Prime instead of boardwalk etc]

    I thought he said you could put prime on boardwalk, or whoever you liked more. *shrugs* would make more sense as there's a lot more houses and hotels than there are spaces.

    yeah i hear ya

    probably just misread but i seriously hope they dont try for characters in the place of properties anyways

    though if they use all the characters in place of "houses and hotels" what are they gonna use for the playing pieces?

    In the Justice League version they used each superhero's different abilities as properties, and powers as houses and superpowers as hotels. Maybe they could use something like that for transformsers.

    Characters instead of places sounds pretty dumb. I'm sure they could gather enough places and make it based on cybertron, or each of the 4 sides based on different planets, maybe from the railway (spacebridge), onward. EG: start is cybertron, first railway (space bridge), then after that is say, earth places, then after the next bridge, maybe junkion, etc, between each bridge is a different planet and places, with the bridge linking them obviously.

    But what about a transformers cluedo (or clue for the americans) ?

    "Megatron killed optimus in autobot city with the stake" :D
