Hasbro to reissue Star Wars Monopoly


Andy

Hasbro have announced that they will reissue the latest version of Star Wars Monopoly after complaints that the board game featured no female characters.

The game, which was released in September 2015, currently features player tokens for Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker from the classic Star Wars trilogy, along with Kylo Ren and Finn from The Force Awakens. This lead to online outrage over the ommission of the main protogonist of the latest movie, Rey.

Hasbro initially stated that as the game was released several months before the release of The Force Awakens that the inclusion of Rey would have been a potential spoiler that they wished to avoid, although this doesn't explain the inclusion of Finn as a character fighting for the Resistance which is an equal spoiler in its own right.

Further to this, other Hasbro offerings have failed to include Rey, including a Millennium Falcon set that includes Chewbacca, Finn and BB-8 figurines. This lead to the hashtag #WheresRey trending worldwide, tracking Rey's absence from Star Wars merchandise in leading chain stores.

A new version of Star Wars Monopoly which includes Rey will be available later in 2016, although no release date has been confirmed so far.

They should sell the new counters individually as well for people who have got the original game

I think they change them over the years. The ones I remember are the dog, boot, thimble, iron, hat, cannon, car, and ship.

    • Build your own lightsaber with Hasbro

      For years, plastic toy lightsabers have been available, but Hasbro's new lightsaber system - Bladebuilders - due to launch later this year allows kids (or big kids!) to create a lightsaber of their own design. Different hilts, blades, and connecting parts are available to mix and match for a unique weapon from a more civilized age.

      The starter pack is said to contain a lightsaber with light and sound, two daggers, an expansion hilt, and several connectors so that you can get started with your custom design right away.

      Bladebuilders will be on display at the American International Toy Fair in New York this weekend.
