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

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...

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. ;)

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.

Wait what? That's kinda crazy.

So in the whole history of Cybertron the Covenant only lists the 13 before skipping right to Optimus?

That's like having the Bible skip from Judah to Joseph.

I figured in Exodus it was just a Squint Glitch but you're telling me that's the real deal?

No Nova Prime? No Guardian Prime, not even a Nominous Prime?

I told you what Exodus said. Not what the Covenant said. The book is still shipping to most people. It only just came out today. Give it some time to arrive into more people's hands first.

Oh darp; yeah that's why I asked "for anyone who has it now"

I think there are... two people in this thread who have it, yes?

I wouldnt bother asking if I thought they were busy actually reading it, but the "Who is Online" ticker says he's online so i figured he'd be cool for it.

Sorry if I annoyed you.

This is just for the Aligned continuity: War for Cybertron and Fall of Cybertron videogames, Exodus, Exiles and Retribution novels, Prime TV series, Fall of Cybertron, Rage of the Dinobots and Beast Hunters comics. So no, no Beast Wars this time! :D

No Beast Wars related stuff? Bumber. I do wish it were comparable to the COP in the show that it was first referenced.
