Transformers At The Moon has posted a fairly lengthy review of the upcoming book: Transformers Vault. This is certainly not the Toy-book many of us thought. Indeed there are pictures of prototypes, unreleased figures, comics and some tidbits on the future of the Transformers Brand!

Also of note is the first picture of Prima, one of the Original 13 Transformers from which the title of Prime originated. Some of the 13 were revealed during Botcon 2010. See a small smattering of images below and be sure to click here for the full review. You will not be dissapointed

oh who posted that? Me.

On another note, I don't want the original 13 in toy form. THese would be the only statues of TF figures that I would ever buy.

Totally epic. This has also put the TF: Vault back on my preorder list.

Correct me if I'm wrong but to me it seems that Prima is getting his first toy soon.

Got the book in the mail today, love it. Not what I expected, but that's a good thing. Also, Prima looks awesome.

I remember when they announced this at the panel last year. Mixed reactions to say the least. Most of them did seem to agree with Mkall. Personally for me, to do these Historic characters justice they have to be statues. For them to be toys they would have to be perfect and not some cheesy gray plastic. Im talkin Takara stlye X100000..

Is that the Matrix in his sword? If so, Prima's HUGE!

All I have to say is that it's easier to pull all those bonus features out of their pockets than it is to get them back in… I-)

Finally got mine in the mail May 27 from Amazon. Very impressed with the hard cover and protective hard cover sleeve. The content is quite impressive even though it is a bit selective. DK Publishing's Transformers the Ultimate Guide (2007) is probably a bit more detailed in the story lines of the different continuums. Still a must have for any serious TF collector. I have a second one coming from Barnes and Noble that should arrive by Tuesday this week, which I'll take with me to Bot-Con this coming Saturday June 4 and hopefully get autographed by any artist, writers, Hasbro designers or anyone else that has contributed to the TF universe. On a side note, if you order yours online from Amazon or Barnes & Noble it should run you roughly $20 but if you purchase in stores it may run you $35. We're in a recession :BOT:

So, Cybertrons story was planned on a napkin... that explains a lot of things.

I'm usually open to new aesthetics and designs, but, that, thing, just doesn't look like a transformer, just some generic mechanoid alien design to me.

But I guess it is just concept art, hope the actual toy looks decent. :-?

Botcon '11 is pretty much upon us and they STILL haven't released the pics of the original 13 that they showed last year. WTF? Well, at least from the looks of Prima, I'm now not that fussed about seeing the rest...
