Bummed I couldn't snag it at the $49, but I still managed to pre-order it at $60. A bit pricey, I think, considering it's not even 200 pages long, but ah well. The electronic case is probably a hefty part of the price tag.

That's how Amazon works. Once a product's preorders spike, they lower the discount/hike the price. They closely watch that activity.

Their wholesale cost is only between 50-55% off retail for most publishers, so the early discount allows them to get some customer data and make sure the book appears in their automation/personalization engine (recommendations: "people who bought X also bought Y").

It's a dastardly machine. Just glad I got my preorder in this morning.

:( well...even for $60 it's still tempting. much better than the MSRP of $100. Wonder how the shipping will be from US to UK, on something so stupidly large?

Well crap. Saw it was $48 this morning and was elated that I would actually be able to afford this since I had written it off wehn they announced the $100 price. I started to pre-order this morning, but was running behind and figured I would get to it after work as I was still debating whether I could fit it in my budget right now. Now its gone from $48 to $60, so now its back burnered for me. May try to work it in the budget later if it doesn't continue to climb in price.

Thing is, they don't charge you for preorders until the actual release date. So had you preordered it right away, you wouldn't have been charged for it until December, ample time to save up for it.

True, but I use a debit card and like to have the money on hand when pre-ordering things so I stay in the black on my budget, especially with Metroplex, the Hasbro MP Soundwave, and all the 3rd party items coming down the pike in the near future :) My wallet is developing cash reflux disease! The Covenant is still a much better deal at $60 than $100, I just figured the price would stay where it was longer.

I just watched the trailer again. Drooling.



Also, is it just me, or is there a snippet from the Star Trek (2009) main theme at 00:34?

It is kinda hard to not drool while watching that! :D

Didn't notice anything at 00:34, though I am usually very distracted at that point :-?

Literally just checked my preorder right before coming to this page by sheer coincidence. :shock: But yeah, mine says Dec. 10th as well. One more week to wait.

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
