"The Hub of TRANSFORMERS: Great American Tour" will celebrate the franchise in all its iterations including this summer's hit film from Paramount Pictures Transformers: Dark of the Moon, as well as the all-new CGI animated television series "Transformers Prime" from Hasbro Studios, and the original 1980s animated television series -- both of which can currently be seen on The Hub.
