The three new tokens are the T-rex, rubber ducky and penguin. There are new tokens in town.

"The Monopoly Token Madness Vote was our biggest fan-powered program to date and the global Monopoly community has spoken!" said Jonathan Berkowitz, senior vice president of marketing for Hasbro Gaming. They won't be part of the next generation of the board game.

Hasbro had asked fans in January to choose the next generation of tokens from a list of 64 options, which included the current lineup.

More than 4.3 million voters from 146 countries weighed in on which tokens they wanted to see in future versions of the property-acquisition game, which is based on the real-life streets of Atlantic City.

While the boot, thimble and wheelbarrow got the, well, boot - literally - Hasbro says the most popular token - the Scottie dog - will remain gamers' best friend. The vehicle was fourth with 165,083; the ducky was fifth with 160,485; the cat was sixth with 154,165; the penguin waddled into seventh place with 146,661; and the battleship made the final cut with 134,704 votes.

The rubber ducky and penguin were the final inductees, joining the cat and the battleship. Zipcar, the car-sharing company, advocated for the survival of the auto token by asking fans to #SaveThe-Car.

The old flat iron piece was swapped out for a cat in 2013.
