Orion Pax, who was given a dedicated Cybertronian form since he had so many flashbacks to be inThe book is divided into three major parts- Characters & Props, Backgrounds & Locations, and Color & Effects -with chapters dedicated to Autobots, Decepticons, Humans, Earth, Cybertron, and so on. Interspersed throughout are quotes from the designers and art directors for Prime discussing their design inspirations and goals in creating each of the characters. Every character gets at least a full page, with most of the main characters getting several. Vehicle mode transformation sequences are shown for some, weapon deployment sequences for others, and example expressions in pencil are given for quite a few of the characters. Those are some of my favorite parts of the character section; not to lessen the accomplishment of the modelers and animators of Prime but even in some of the super-clean hand-drawn sequences there's a certain lively quality that comes through better on the page. Which makes sense I guess; images that were designed to be static work better in print. The second part of the book features both gorgeous concept art for the world of Prime as well as both barebones and finalized renders for locations like Kaon, the Nemesis, and of course the ever-present Energon Mines. Lastly, the color & effects section highlights other aspects of production like the still paintings used in many of the show's flashback scenes. It's nice to be able to dedicate some time to those without pausing a DVD!
