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

The Age of Rust? Would that be what the era of the Caste System was called, I wonder?

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

C'mon Amazon... ship mine already...

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.

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.

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...
