* The induction of film industry legends Michael Bay and Steven Spielberg into the Transformers Hall of Fame. Michael Bay will be present to accept his honor and share some special surprises with the audience.
* Vehicles seen in the Transformers film franchise will be on display throughout the event. Fans can look forward to seeing Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Sideswipe, Ironhide and Autobot Ratchet.
