Thousands of TRANSFORMERS fans from around the world will converge at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Resort on June 26th and 27th to celebrate more than 25 years of “MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE” action and excitement at what is widely known as “BOTCON.”
“The TRANSFORMERS Hall of Fame celebrates Hasbro’s global entertainment property that has sparked the imagination of millions of kids over the past 26 years and remains one of the world’s most iconic brands”
At this year’s BOTCON, Hasbro is launching the TRANSFORMERS Hall of Fame to honor those influential in creating and building this iconic entertainment brand as well as actual “ROBOTS IN DISGUISE.”
“The TRANSFORMERS Hall of Fame celebrates Hasbro’s global entertainment property that has sparked the imagination of millions of kids over the past 26 years and remains one of the world’s most iconic brands,” said Greg Lombardo, senior global marketing director for TRANSFORMERS. “We are excited to induct the first TRANSFORMERS Hall of Fame class during the convention’s visit to Orlando.”
In addition to TRANSFORMERS influentials Bob Budiansky, Peter Cullen, Hideaki Yoke and Kohjin Ohno being inducted, favorite robot characters OPTIMUS PRIME, BUMBLEBEE, MEGATRON and STARSCREAM are members of the inaugural class. Hasbro will also announce and induct the “fan’s choice” robot character, voted on by the TRANSFORMERS fan community, at a special TRANSFORMERS Hall of Fame induction ceremony event at BOTCON on Saturday, June 26 in the evening.
This year’s convention will feature, for the first time ever, an interactive experience celebrating the launch of the global “HUNT FOR THE DECEPTICONS” online gaming promotion.
