It looks veeery pretty, and I like Jim's work.
Could be a nice addition next to the Covenant, for a more practical take on the stuff!

There's a silver version of the car-based Vehicon in here labeled "Starscream's Vehicon Seekers", despite not using the Jet Vehicon model.

Also, you can view a while lotta pages using the "Surprise Me!" feature. I managed to get 16 pages to show:

Image 1 - front cover
Image 2 - credits page 1
Image 3 - credits page 2
Image 4 - Darkmount
Image 5 - Table of Contents w/ Ratchet & Arcee sketches
Image 6 - Darkmount throne room
Image 7 - Foreword w/ Bulkhead and Fowler sketches
Image 8 - Part One: Character & Prop Design w/ Megs and Prime
Image 9 - Cybertronian landscape
Image 10 - Introduction w/ Bee sketch, Scraplet, & Jack sketches
Image 11 - Key to Vector Sigma, Screamer sketch, Megs sketch, and silver Vehicon
Image 12 - Team Prime portrait first half (Prime & Arcee)
Image 13 - Team Prime portrait second half (Bulk, Bee, & Ratchet)
Image 14 - Prime concept CG model
Image 15 - Prime's weaponry
Image 16 - back cover

Others told me that they got many many more to show by logging out and logging back into their accounts, but that didn't work for me on my end.

Nope, that's why I said this is the first actual artbook I'm getting.

No interest, I don't care much for the aesthetic of FOC.

Might buy this myself, too. Don't know if "You Can Draw Transformers" counts as this kind of art book, but otherwise, it would my first.
