10 secrets you probably didn’t know about Transformers!

10 Things You Didn’t Know About The TransformersThe Transformers comprise one of the most popular media franchises of all time.

The newest edition of Star Wars Monopoly. Where’s Rey?

A new edition of the board game for The Force Awakens includes Finn, Kylo Ren, Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader tokens – with the notable absence of Rey, the film’s lead.
