Monopoly: The Godfather Edition

Alright, we'll admit The Godfather series might not make the most sense for a Monopoly translation — Risk might be more appropriate? — but what the hell. Monopoly: The Godfather Edition ($40) brings the world of the Corleone family to the classic board game, with destinations such as Moe Greene's casino, Woltz Mansion, and the Corleone Lake Tahoe Estate serving as properties, Friends and Enemies taking the place of Chance and Community Chess, and iconic props such as cannoli, olive oil can, and horse head serving as game tokens. On second thought, maybe it does make sense — it takes about as long to finish a game as it does to finish all three films.

  • LEGO Land Rover Defender

    Building LEGO weapons not really your thing? Perhaps this LEGO Land Rover Defender ($TBA) is more your speed. This amazing creation is a 1:8.5 scale recreation of Rover's legendary truck, built from nearly 2,800 parts, including 7 motors and 3 IR receivers. Yes, you read that correctly: it actually runs, controlled via RF with a LEGO-based controller. Along with the intense AWD system and live axles in the front and rear, it also features a five-speed sequential gearbox with an automatic clutch, a two-speed transfer case, and a whole host of working parts like doors, hood, and tailgate. It's currently up on Cuusoo, and needs over 10,000 supporters to become a reality — and pledging your support is free, so there's no reason not to. [Scouted by JC]

  • Scalextric James Bond Cars

    One thing has been consistent across all of the 007 films — the English spy's awesome cars. While we doubt you'll ever be able to take them for a spin, you can drive them around your own small-scale course with these Scalextric James Bond Cars (£50-£120; roughly $80-$190). The collection includes the Aston Martin DB5s from Goldfinger, GoldenEye, and Casino Royale, as well as a set celebrating the upcoming release Skyfall, which includes a DB5, a Range Rover, and a figure 8 track.
