"No you don't, Megatron!"

Actor Judd Nelson has been announced as the BotCon 2016 Special Guest. Judd Nelson is known for his roles as Hot Rod and Rodimus Prime in The Transformers The Movie (1986) as well as Rodimus in Transformers Animated (2008), though your Mom and Dad probably know him best from Breakfast Club and others might recognize him as a recurring character on Fox's Empire. More details about Judd Nelson and how you can get to meet him are below!
