UPDATE - August 31, 2011

Great news. USAopoly just released more photos of the Futurama Monopoly. First, take a look at the Bills:


The full bills feature:
  • $1: George Washington
  • $5: Abraham Lincoln (as far I can see)
  • $10: Richard Nixon's head-in-a-jar
  • $20: Horrible Gelatinous Blob
  • $50: NNY Supervillain governor (on Mount Rushmore from ep. "When Aliens Attack")
  • $100: Benjamin Franklin
  • $500: Al Gore
I'm surprised they didn't add Al Gore as a head-in-a-jar.

Next, there you go the board, the houses and hotels (renamed as Resi-Domes and People Hives):

Futurama Monopoly: House aka People Hives Futurama Monopoly: Play board Futurama Monopoly: Hose aka Resi-Domes

Full list of properties on the board:
  • Brown
    • Sewer City
    • Cookieville Minimum Security Orphanarium
  • Sky Blue
    • Antares 3 (from "Attack of the Killer App")
    • Vergon 6 (it was destroyed!!!)
    • Amphibious 9
  • Pink
    • The Hip Joint
    • Studio 122133 (from "Rebirth")
    • Elzar's Fine Cuisine
  • Orange
    • Robot Arms Apartments
    • HAL Institute for Criminally Insane Robots
    • Robot Hell
  • Red
    • Santa's Workshop on Neptune
    • Lrr's Palace on Omicron Persei 8
    • Snu Snu Chambers on Amazonia
  • Yellow
    • Head Museum
    • Underground White House
    • Planet Express
  • Green
    • Future-Roma
    • Lost City of Atlanta
    • Mars Vegas
  • Blue
    • Wong's Ranch
    • Mom's Friendly Robot Company
The Chance and Community Chest cards examples, renamed to "Attention puny humans" ft. Morbo and "Good news everyone!" ft. Professor Farnsworth:

Futurama Monopoly: Chance/Community Chest card - Billionaire bot Futurama Monopoly: Chance/Community Chest card - Robot Mafia
I don't know if those cards will be all white (and not dark orange and yellow like the original ones).

The transportation items are:
  • The Nimbus
  • The Momcorp Flagship
  • Nibbler's ship
  • Omicronian Mothership
The services are:
  • Central Bureaucracy Tax (pay $200)
  • Westside Pipeway
  • Applied Cryogenics
  • League of Robot's dues (pay $100)
I don't know why they don't used Smitty or URL for the "Go to Jail" image, and perhaps Roberto for the "Jail" image. I can think on many stuff to replace those and other items, but I guess the Monopoly needs to stick to the classic images for some parts of the game.

Futurama Monopoly box cover (by USAopoly)UPDATE - August 3, 2011

Check the image of the tokens below.

Well, with the San Diego Comic-Con in its peak, FOX and USAopoly finally released over there, the cover of the Futurama Monopoly (click the image for a bigger preview), and not only that, but the release date for the preorder of the game (that includes the golden Bender token), set to September 1st, 2011.

According to MTV Geek, the properties include: "[..] Mom’s Friendly Robot Company and Planet Express Headquarters! Rather than buying houses and hotels, property improvements will be made with Resi-domes and People Hives just like they are in New New York!". I really hope I can use the 500 dollar bill with Al Gore on it.

In the USAopoly Futurama page, you'll also find a video called "Sculpting Futurama: Planet Express Ship Game Token" that features the process of sculpting the Planet Express Ship token, that will be one of the seven tokens. You can also watch it here:

ORIGINAL ARTICLE:


I think many fans (myself included) have been waiting for this game to appear. Finally, todays is the day when USAopoly announced the official Futurama Monopoly collector's edition that will be available for preorder on October 17, 2011.

The great about this, is that we can vote each day to define the 7th collective token (token is the item used to play the game). This 7th collectible item will have a gold finish and it will only be available if you preorder the game.

Futurama Monopoly tokens (from USAopoly)The tokens are:
  • Leela's boot
  • Bender's Head (GOLDEN: Only preordering)
  • Brainslug
  • Seymour
  • What If machine
  • Planet Express Starship
  • Hypnotoad
According to the fellas of USAopoly, Futurama fans are working closely with Matt Groening and his team for this project, so I believe they'll do a great work. The Simpson Monopoly has very good reviews, so if Matt, perhaps David X Cohen and the staff is working on it, there will be no inconsistencies (haha)!
