2013 to 2016 - Token Change (USA)

2013


2012 Extra Tokens 2012 Extra Tokens 2012 New Token Choice

At the start of 2013 Hasbro decided to retire a token and introduce a new one. This was done through a poll on Facebook where you had to choose which token you wanted to keep and which one you would like to replace it from a robot, a ring, a cat, a helicopter and a guitar. In the end the iron lost out (the smallest token which you could hide behind bukldings) and the cat won. A special edition version was released exclusively via Target stores with all 13 tokens which were sold out very quickly.


If you look at the dates on the boxes when they were printed, they are dated 2012.

July 2013 sees the first versions in the shops and online with the cat instead of the iron, and with a totally new box design. And already there are two slightly different versions depending where you purchase them from.

2014 sees a new look to the USA box front as the back is virtually the same. The cat is now prominently on the front of the box with the dog. Otherwise it is basically the same and the same code of 00009.
