Monopoly Introduces Tyrannosaurus Rex, Penguin, Rubber Ducky Game Pieces

That means the thimble, boot and wheelbarrow did not.

Fans have spoken and three of the Monopoly tokens are being retired from the next generation of the game.

"While I'm sad to see the iconic thimble, boot, and wheelbarrow tokens go, it will be fun to have some new, fan-sourced tokens in the mix", said Jonathan Berkowitz, Hasbro's senior vice president of marketing.

Here they are, your new Monopoly tokens.

May: 'Now is not the time' for Scottish independence vote
Still, Sturgeon's Scottish National Party does not hold an outright majority in the Scottish legislature. May is now free to invoke Article 50 of the EU's key treaty, triggering two years of exit negotiations.

In 1998, fans voted in a "bag of money" token over a bi-plane or piggy bank.

Here's how the new pieces will look in the classic Monopoly silver. According to the Associated Press, more than 4.6 million people in 146 different countries took part in the vote, which lasted from January 10 to January 31. Legendary tokens like the Scottie Dog, car, battleship, top hat and cat made the cut.

Following an online fan vote, eight tokens are set to ship with the next generation of Hasbro's Monopoly. The duck came in fifth, and the penguin placed seventh. And considering the options-which included a flip-flop and a couple emoji-the T. rex, rubber ducky, and penguin are petty good picks, even though it's baffling that sliced bread didn't get chosen. The other four survivors from the 2017 contest are the Scottie dog, top hat, vehicle and battleship. Those five will be joined by the three new tokens later this year.

Prior to this revision, the most recent lineup change occurred when the cat was swapped in for the iron. The Scottie Dog earned the most affectionate pats (212,476 votes), with the T-Rex coming a close second (207,954 votes) and well ahead of No. 3, the Top Hat (167,582 votes). The fake holiday actually falls on Sunday, March 19, but that's not a good day for the announcement people, so here we are.
