Courtesy of Seibertron.com member Mkall, we have some more information on the Covenant of Primus, including some photos! As reported earlier, the item is on its way for most who pre-ordered, so look out for deliveries soon. Check out what Mkall has to say and show below, including a 'mysterious last page'!

Author: Justina Robson

Artists: Ken Christiansen, Emiliano Santalucia, Livio Ramondelli, Casey Coller

There is a switch on the underside to control volume of the sound: High, Low, and None.

I love the artwork of the 13 Primes, there's a couple full-page spreads but not as many as I would've liked to have seen. As far as I can tell, it's all new to this book; nothing reused from other sources. Some of it seems very IDW-inspired, but I suspect that's because some of the artists have worked on both projects.

Table of contents:
1.The Thirteen Primes
2.The Expulsion of Unicron
3.The War of the Primes
4.The Age of Evolution
5.The Age of Origins
6.The Age of Wrath
7.The Golden Age
8.The Age of Rust
9.The Great War
10.Exodus
11.Earthfall

Someone needs to make posters of the 13 Primes. The art is seriously bad-ass.

How about a size comparison? Damn, I want to read this now.

And if they do prints or posters based on the art, I want that Unicron.

You need us? We need Chris McFeely! ;)

Looks to at least be "Ancient Autobot" text.

Mkall, does it show the Thirteenth Prime properly, or did they do a mystery thing about that too? And what do we see Megatronus both pre- and post-Fallen mode?

It's not "The Thirteenth Prime." His name is Thirteen (always italicized) and yes, we do have an image of him.

Okay, after some repeated attempts to crack this code, I don't think it's Ancient Autobot, guys.

Aha! Good good.

And about the Fallen?

I don't have the book yet, but based on the pics of the Primes in this book that we saw glimpses at before, I'm gonna guess that the book will have the pre- and post-Fallen pics of Megatronus that were shown at BotCon 2010 and 2011.

SPOILER ALERT, whoa on the amazon.com page, you can get it for 59.99 now free shipping, and when you "look inside" at some of the pages, it says in the Afterword who the 13th Prime was? WHHHAT that doesn't make sense though...

It's going to Italy. From the US. I'll get in January. When I'm in the UK.

Oh, well.. :(

And WHOAH. Scraplets is right! D:

Judging from you guys's reactions, I don't even have to look to know who it is. >:oP

And now (still without looking) I'm bummed that it's evidently true. :BANG_HEAD:

A question for anyone who has it now.

Could anyone give a summary of the Primes?

Not the 13, but the ones right before Optimus.

So before Optimus we had Sentinel Zeta and before him who was it, and so on.

Thanks guys!

Also if anyone would do some summarizing for tfwiki and the rest of the net I'd be grateful. Not all of us can afford this thing :)!

From what we could tell from Exodus, it seemed like Zeta was the only Prime from since after the Thirteen's time to Optimus's term.

Don't worry. The Wiki guys are already eager and ready to get their hands on this thing and put it all on the Wiki. ;)

I'm sure it translates to what Alpha Trion wrote in english, on that "Afterwards" page on Amazon.

Still, I'm not gonna take a look on that page until I have the book in hand. It's bound to get to my house between today and Thursday.
