Today, Hasbro, the makers of the family-favorite game Monopoly, revealed on Wednesday, February 6!

The boot, iron and wheelbarrow drew the least support from fans, while the Scottie dog received the most support. In the end, fans voted out the Iron.

The cat received the most votes in a close race. Edging out the diamond ring and the robot to take first place.

The new token is expected to make its debut in mid- to late 2013. Until then, fans can still buy games with the old tokens.
