One of the highlights of the year for our family thus far was attending the red carpet premiere of TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT in Chicago. Among the cast and crew in attendance was star Mark Wahlberg, who’s played Cade Yeager in the past couple of installments, and now he’s headed for Hasbro’s HASCON – their first ever “FANmily” event.
