Ian Malcolm was right, life finds a way - to replace existing Monopoly pieces!
The next generation of the popular board game is getting a bit of an overhaul, and it's bringing three brand new game tokens with it - a fearsome Tyrannosaurus Rex, a cute rubber ducky and a penguin. But, with these new pieces comes a bit of a price as Hasbro is phasing out the boot, thimble and wheelbarrow tokens to make room for them.
The three iconic pieces, who've been with the game since the beginning, met their fate after millions of fans across the globe voted on which eight tokens they’d like to see in the next version of the game during the Monopoly Token Madness Vote back in January.

"The next generation of tokens clearly represents the interests of our fans around the world, and we’re proud to have our iconic game impacted by the people that feel most passionate about playing it," Jonathan Berkowitz, senior vice president of marketing for Hasbro Gaming said in a statement.
Back in 2013, Hasbro dropped the iron token in favor of the cat.
