        Isn't there a dog? Seems redundant when all the other pieces are fairly unrelated.

            That's exactly what I was thinking. I wanted the robot to get in. But the internet loves cats and flooded the vote.

              I don't understand why they have never used the Monopoly mascot as a piece.

                Uncle Pennybags? No one player can be him. That would be cheating

                  I think it's funny that a lot of people are hypothesizing that the retired iron will be "rare".

                    My sister has the Monopoly game my parents bought back in 1955. Back then the tokens were solid-cast and very heavy. Even the money was made of heavy tag (or book grade) paper.

                    My favorite was the race car.

                    That family Monopoly game sure got a lot of use. I always lost because I never really understood what constituted winning. Most of the fun of Monopoly was because no one seemed to understand the point of it all. In the absence of a complete understanding, Monopoly can be a lot of fun.

                      It's pretty clear to me that those people have no clue what "rare" means.

                          The other choices were a robot, a diamond ring, a helicopter and a guitar.

                            I don't see why they felt the need to change anything in the classic game. There's so many versions of Monopoly that if someone wanted a different game experience, all they had to do was purchase another version. I think the diamond ring would have fit in best as the other pieces seem out of place with the current pieces.

                              It's just a gimmick to get people into Monoploy all over again, that's all. It's really doesn't change the classic game at all really.

                                You're definitely right about that. I don't even think most will even notice the change. I always picked the car, and rarely was in a game with more than 4 people so I couldn't even recall all the tokens anyways.

                                  It's probably pretty unlikely that the iron will become a "rare collectable" cause the Monoploy company made millions of those.

                                  Why? You don't get enough of seeing that dude on everything else on the game, lol.

                                    Iron was my 3rd favorite piece after dog and top hat.
