    I'm not a Prime member and used free shipping but I just got notice that my Black Friday order is being delivered early today. Nice.
    Amazon is determined to get even more of my money today. I don't need the clones but at this price ... Here are some highlights for those who don't check the deals thread.
    Monopoly Transformers edition - $11.99
    Galactic Odyssey Autobot Clones 2-pack - $12.99
    Galactic Odyssey Micromasters 6-pack - $21.99
    Siege Voyager Class Optimus Prime - $21.99
    Kingdom Commander Class Rodimus Prime - $56.99

    Hmm the clones are tempting. Does anyone know where I can get the Decepticon clones this cheap or are they rare?

    One of the Target in my area had them on clearance last year for $7.49. And they had TONS of them. I should have bought more when I had the chance and spread the love.

    The monopoly set kinda sucks, the board is smaller than a standard monopoly board by a space or 2 on each side.

    I wish they would try just a little harder with those sets for as many as they produce. Like it would be cute if Prowl was in the Go to Jail square and Overlord was the one behind bars. Also the property groupings don't really make any in-world sense. And while I know the character silhouettes like the back of my hand, I can't really work out who's who in those pieces, apart from I assume Starscream second from the top.

    Still, I'm glad I'm not a Monopoly/Board Game collector because Hasbro milks the ever loving crap out of those people.

    At that price they're rare. They're not hard to find online in the vicinity of regular retail, but that price is unusual.

    Thanks for letting me know that. The standard board is almost too small as is when a larger group plays so a smaller board would make it all the harder. I'll probably pass now. :)

    Any word on golden disk stuff? I'm half wanting them to come earlier, half wanting them not to so I have toy budget for other stuff.

    Could be wrong because the number of customized monopoly sets has increased exponentially, but I believe they never change the 4 corner squares.

    No, you're absolutely correct. But it's their rule. They could break it should they choose.

    True. Could be a trademark thing, a way to ensure it is still recognized as Monopoly and not an easily reproduced knock off. Regardless, I don’t think it fair to say it is because the didn’t try hard enough. I doubt you needed much effort into coming up with alternatives.

    So I just put in an Amazon JP order only to learn my bank flagged it as fraudulent and locked my card.
