Monopoly set to replace one of its tokens, asking fans which piece to retire - NY Daily News
Monopoly is going to replace one of its iconic tokens with a new one. Which one would you retire and which one would you replace it with?
Ugh...why change things. It's like when they took the light brown M&M's out. Never been the same.
Old: Iron or Thimble. I hate those pieces.
I love the thimble! It has such a nice solid base. Iron too. I'd be okay with the Wheelbarrow going but I vote battleship. Maybe its cooler than the others but the piece has its own friggin game, it doesn't need monopoly LOL
I'd replace it with the cat, toy robot or helicopter. Iffy about the robot because it sounds too techie and i don't think of monopoly as a techie game.
I'm not quite seeing how the guitar or the ring would work. they would have to lay down or be artificially propped up somehow. Cheesy.
So there's my full analysis

I don't ever remember a battleship! I'm pretty sure there was no battleship in our Monopoly game!
I like the diamond ring idea, because I'm shallow and materialistic. It probably wouldn't move as well around the board as some of the others. I always liked the thimble and the shoe. I think the race car should go.
