Botcon, the official annual Transformers convention, has announced that it will be held in San Diego, California from June 27 to 30th at the Town and Country Resort. The annual convention is one of the few officially recognized by Hasbro. It includes a year "Hall of Fame" ceremony and Hasbro tends to announce the next six months of upcoming TF toys there with various voice actors from the different iterations of the cartoon series participating in panels. While Michael Bay has participated in a few Botcons, he and Paramount do not use it as a place to announce anything movie related. If anything were to be planned involving TF4 more then likely it would be reserved for the San Diego Comic-Con held in July.
